So, I have been tagged and told to list 6 random things about myself and then tag 5 other people to do the same here are the top 6 things off the top of the head:

1. I am sitting in class reading my friends' blogs

2. I dreamt last night that my coworker jumped in shark filled water to save a cat

3. I told my boss and 3 coworkers that I hated them because they said they hated cats

4. I love Damon because he tried to rescue a kitten on the Greenway and he was going to bring it home in his bike pocket - he didn't catch it

5. I can't wait to have a goat so the cat can ride it

6. I have lots of wishes. I wish I could travel more, I wish I could take a week off and chill, I wish my garden looked like Sue's. I wish candy had no calories. I wish I lived on a mini farm with mini horses and mini goats.

Tag Heather, Kate, Janice, Ember, Amber

A fine line between heaven and hell

Inside vs Outside
Love vs Hate
Work vs Sick Day
Fun Garden Party vs Driving
Friends vs Fun Strangers
Family Dinner vs Wrong Turn
Outdoor Wedding vs Dirty outside picnic
Garden vs Weed pile
Staying vs Moving
Goat vs Pig
So many fine lines that we cross everyday. I guess tonight - I paint!

Special Day

This wasn't today, but it was another special day. Damon dragged me out of bed to see the butterfly. It was supposed to make my day special and it did I am sure, I can't remember since it was a couple of weeks ago. Certainly better than flowers. Today is going to be a special day because while I was in bed reading this morning and balancing coffee on myself I spilled it and now I have a circular burn on my stomach. At that point I got up and worked out. Might as well. But I will try to count all the ways. My carpool just called and I am supposed to leave in three minutes but I haven't showered yet.

Nia, naya, nya....NOOOOOO!!!

We are puppy sitting this weekend. Puppy never stops. She ate everything that she came in contact with and then she puked it up. She learned lots of bad habits while she has been here. Oh look at her walk on a leash without heeling. She discovered the litterbox...yum. She bounced on the couch and tackled the cat. She ate Tarns food and refused her own. She whined all night and then got to sleep in the bedroom with the other animals. She will hardly go in her crate, probably because kitty sits and stares at her in there. Isn't she cute?

The computer works!

Damon dropped it off at a computer store, and it is a bad battery. Maybe a power surge. So 100$ fixes the problem. We don't have it back yet but hooray to having a laptop again. I finished the book Three Cups of Tea. I'll have to give it the best book read since The Glass Castle. We then went and saw Where in the world is Osama Bin Laden? It went well with Three Cups of Tea and goes with the theory of liking documentaries over anything else. Since it is 100 degrees here, gotta go see movies even if you don't like them. Damon did the MOuntain to Sound relay race this weekend. He had to be at the top of Snoqualmie pass at 7:15. At 6:45 we got a flat tire outside Cle Elem. The tire was quickly pulled off the car only to realize the spare didn't fit. Everything was thrown back in the car and we headed to Cle Elem to find a tire on Sunday before 8 in the morning. Damon has a cell phone but he thought he forgot it, eventually he found it but he dropped a year ago, so he can't see anyone's phone numbers to call them and let them know he is late. They are work people and he doesn't even really know them. So he is most likely going to ruin their relay race. We went to 3 gas stations and finally found out where they sell tires. We went there, right as they were opening the garage. But there was a lot of stress between 6:45 and 7:30. Eventually I started laughing, what else could we do, it was a lost cause to get Damon to this race. That was not the right thing to do. Damon started randomly dialing phone numbers in my phone to try and get his one friends phone number. He called the head of the department at my school. How embarrassing is that? Damon said wrong number and hung up. I had to call back and say we had a flat tire and my psycho husband is randomly calling phone numbers at 7:30 in the morning. Damon got to the race 5 minutes before it started. He rode 50 miles and said it was a nice ride. Tarn and I went and met my friend Kim at the Marymore dog park in Seattle. It was dog heaven, dogs everywhere off leash, running around like crazy. Tarn even went into the water above his belly to meet the 10 great danes that were standing in the water. Then Tarn got stuck behind a fence. I had to climb over and save him and all of the Great Dane dogs had little dog friends that were standing behind the fence. That is all the excitement here - it is hot.
