Summer recap, etc

I know I've been MIA lately. Sorry everyone! As I mentioned before, my husband's hockey isn't on and well, that leaves him more time to notice me on the computer. We can't have that. Plus, my daughter is home on summer break and I don't want to seem like I'm taking all her time away. Unfortunately, I feel I have been taking time away from her by playing on such games as.....

YoVille. This game allows you to decorate your apartment, check into work, buy furniture, clothes, etc and then purchase houses. It's fun!

And then Farm Town allows you to build a farm and plant crops and then harvest them or hire other farmers to harvest for you.

There are a couple others that are similar. I do hope this shall pass.....SOON! It's an addiction that I wish I never started! (lol) In fact, I vow to do more with my child before her summer vacation is over (14 more days). Oh boy, the more I type this, the more I feel like crap! Let's see, what have we done already this summer? Hopefully this will make me feel better.

  • Vegas
  • Camping
  • Birthday party
  • Six Flags with friend
  • Play date with friend at their house
  • Play date with another friend at Chuck E. Cheese
  • Bowling
  • Went for a bike ride.

Here's my "to do" list:

  • Play date in the works for Tuesday (tomorrow).
  • Go pick cherries at a local farm. (I figure since I like "harvesting" on my game above, why not do the real thing, right?!)
  • Do another bike ride
  • Maybe see a movie
  • Maybe go to Scandia or Boomers (mini-golf places)
  • Hit Six Flags again.

Perhaps it's just me, you know, thinking I'm on the computer too much. This looks like a lot of stuff, right?


In other news, this month is a special month to me. One, my husband's birthday is this month, July 25th. And then two, my birthday is 6 days after his. That's right ladies (or gents), I will officially be in my mid-30's! The big 3-5! *gasp*

One one hand, I feel okay about it because I was told one day recently that I looked too young to have a 7 yr old. ( sweet!) but then on the other hand, in 5 more years and I'll be 40! Oh. My. Gosh! How the heck did that happen? I sure in the heck don't feel my age. I just hope I continue to look (so they say) and feel younger as I get older!


This past 4th of July, the three of us and my SIL went camping. I had fun.....sort of. Leave one person in particular out of the equation and I had a fabulous time. I'll leave that one alone. I think you can figure it out on your own, right?! I didn't even take my camera so I can't even show you any highlights of the trip. We did take our dog though which was a nice change! I'm sure he was happy too.

Other than that, not much going on here. I haven't even been taking pictures lately. I'm really slacking off here. What the heck, right?! ME not taking pictures? What's wrong with me? lol

Well, that's about it for now. I promise not to be too long next time. I'll go take pictures this week and pay attention to the little silly things that are said. Perhaps that will give me something to write!

Deirdre needs to hit Six Flags by Aug 9. Sad thing is we are camping Aug. 3-8. Her free ticket in expires on the 9th. If you go, have fun for us!!

Sounds like all is well in your part of the world, Kimmy. I am so glad for that. I can totally relate to what you are saying about wanting to take time away from the computer to be with your kids. Isn't that what summer is all about?

I hear ya about the birthday. Mine was yesterday. Although, I have never been mistaken for being younger than my 37 years.
