We're off to Silcox Hut for the weekend with some friends from work. I've never been there before - but am looking forward to it. We had to do a little arm twisting to get the kids up there. Grandma was working on luring them away for a whole weekend of Columbia County Fair - Rodeo fun which sounded much better than hiking around "Mountain Hood" with mom's nerdy work friends). I told Samantha that it would be beautiful, someplace they have never seen and we could play games!
"Games like Sorry?" she asked. "Sorry you had to come?"

We have added two new family members in honor of Samantha's birthday. This is "Jaws" and "Lu". Betta's seemed about as low maintenance as fish could get, and they are pretty. Sammie also wanted her brother to have one (so Lu would have a "fish buddy" although they are separated since you can't keep two Male Bettas (a.k.a Siamese Fighting Fish) together. Posted by Picasa

I have been acused of being a "bloggygagger." That's probably fair - this summer has been crazy busy. I'm trying to squeeze in a 1-2 hour workout, a 10 hour workday, trying to stay up to date with Big Brother All Stars and oh yea, time with my family every day. I'm not finding much time to keep you all entertained. Don't feel singled out. I'm not practicing piano either.

this man rocks!

Posted by Picasa This is one of many pictures Damien took at the second Rock the Barn event. It maybe the last such concert -as Christ I'm Chuck is threatening to not reconvene. I'm not sure what all the issues are, but it completely bums me out. RTB is a fun, fun event -for their many fans and I think also for the band members. Ah well, I can still remember the day I was married to this rock star.
