Here I am

Shame on me, I haven't posted in over a week.  I have been getting wrapped up in online dating which really doesn't work all that well.  Also with work and the kids and the dog etc...  Chaos still reigns at my house.  It has been so horribly hot here.  In the mid 90's every day for the last 3 days.  It should break today hopefully with storms. 

Sarah's pump educator is going to be meeting us today at Sarah's grandmothers house to teach us how to use the pump.  It is going to be very hot there as she has no A/C either!  I need to get out of this state of apathy soon.  I kind of drift thru life just getting the basics done and not much else.  The house looks like hell.  I spent the weekend geocaching and canoeing with a guy from Albany area I met.  No he is not a romantic prospect.  Quite the opposite.  I suppose he could be if he wasn't so uptight!  I guess he would be what they call anal-retentive!  LOL!  Not that I didn't have a good time of course.  We had a wonderful paddle across the lake and down a creek.  We saw alot of birds including a great blue heron rookery.  I took pictures but they are trapped in the camera until I get to the store to download them onto disc.  My camera no longer connects with the computer.  I guess it got dropped too many times by the kids. 

I'm afraid Travis is going to develop another bad habit!  He slept in our room last night in Sarah's bed because it was so hot in the house.  I hope he doesn't make it a regular thing.  Not that it bothered me but...

A boy his age that goes to his school was killed a few days ago in a horrible accident less than a mile from our house.  A man was speeding up the mountain and crossed the line and hit him head on.  There was accusations of alcohol usage.  Both died in the crash.  The boy on impact.  Both thrown from their vehicles also. 

Time to get ready for work.  Hope all have a nice week.

You should pick up an all-in-one card reader.  We got one from Walmart for like $12.  Our's is a Kodak, but they don't seem to carry it anymore.  Anyhow, we've had it for 4-5 years now and it works great.   Here is one for about $15. http://tinyurl.com/2fkok4

If you know what kind of memory card your camera has (or you take it with you and ask) you can get ones that only work with one type of card for like $3-$5.  Hubby wanted the all-in-one in just to be safe.  Guess it's good that we got it since we lost our old cheap camera and the new one has a different card.

Glad you had a good time on your canoe trip.  Sounds like fun. :-)

I hope you find someone special with the online dating.  I've heard wonderful stories from some.  Enjoy your day.

My friend met a guy on line and they made a good match but after a few years he died from cancer. So sad. Too bad the canoe guy wasn't a better match for you. Sounds romantic. Paula

Canoing sounds great...a good way to spend the day.  Sorry you don't find him romantic but you can still have fun with him.  I have heard good stories from online dating...so I am sending you good vibes!
