    Do you Squidoo?

    I have totally fallen in love with Squidoo! It’s very difficult to explain, but you create these webpages called “lenses” that are about a specific topic of interest. You can use different modules like a text box, links, photos, video, music, RSS feeds, etc. to tell about your topic. You can also include Amazon items, and other things for sale. Squidoo shares any profits made from affiliate links, google ads, and so on, with the lens makers – that’s us! Squidoo is a great way to advertise your business, market your blog, or share more about your favorite cause. If you sign up, do so through a referral link because…

    Dead and gross

    When we got home, I went to check the pool. It was cloudy. And green. With things floating in it. Dead things… dragonflies, leaves, earwigs. Things like that. Oh, yeah, and a squirrel. So I have to ask… who goes away for five days and returns to a dead squirrel in their pool?! We haven’t had a dead animal in our pool in the year we’ve had it, so why did one decide to take the plunge while we were away? Big guy fished him out. Let’s face it, that’s one of the big perks of being married. =} Anyway, he left it on the side of the lawn and…

    We have returned

    The first thing is that we flew out on August 10, which was right in the middle of the wacky terrorism scare. We flew out of a smaller airport, so security wasn’t so bad (there was no line at all, actually) and other than having me throw out the ice pack I was using to keep Little Guy’s formula cold, we didn’t have any problems. And, yeah, had I thought about it, I wouldn’t have even brought the ice pack, but it just didn’t cross my mind that it would be an issue. Anyway, that was no big deal. The problem was the weather in Philly. We ended up two…

    Wedding Bells Flying By

    We’re heading off with tomorrow for Little Guy’s first plane ride. We’ve got a destination wedding in UT. It’s one of FOUR destination weddings we’ve been invited to this year. I am not a fan. I think that asking your friends and relatives to schlep half-way across the country for no good reason other than a pretty backdrop is just a bit… selfish. It’s not like they have family there. It’s not even like they met there. Considering that they have many friends in common with the first destination wedding we were invited to this year (we couldn’t attend, but it’s where they got engaged), it’s just too much. Anyway,…

    I’m home and had a great time at convention. I’ll be posting more about that, but not tonight. =} Little Guy and Big Guy survived just fine without me and I didn’t cry the WHOLE time I was gone. Seriously, I just got misty-eyed a few times, and had a rough first night. Thanks for all of the support!
