What's Wrong With This Picture?

Or this one...

If you said "nothing," you're in trouble!
Nevermind, I guess it's a little hard to capture the full effect on camera. I got my one little wisdom tooth pulled yesterday morning. It went okay, but now I'm ready for some real food and some non-sitting activities.
Hurrah for ice cream!

What we did LAST weekend - never gonna catch up!

On Saturday we jogged, went to the grocery store, and then... hmmmm.
Anyway, somewhere in there I studied, Paul cleaned the bathroom, and we watched the latest Harry Potter DVD. It was fun b/c it was one of the first times Paul was able to balke at the poor justice movies versions of great books do for the story.
Sunday was a beautiful day! It was a little breezy, warm, and sunny. In the morning I studied some more, and Paul tried to fix the baseboard in our living room. He'd have to tell you about how that went. After lunch he wanted to go to a local park to practice throwing his lacrosse ball and readjust the new laces on his stick. I went with him (to study) & took the camera. It was great to get outside & not get dripped/spit/misted on!
After taking this picture and some others, I decided that maybe it's time for a more powerful camera. We got our 1st digital six or seven years ago. The megapixies are holding me back (I like to crop)! Anyway, this one turned out okay w/o cropping. I think if you click on it, you can see a bigger image. I was on the wrong side in relationship to the sun, Paul is teeny, and those stupid posts were in the way (other than that, I like it!). But, he's on the R-H third and the lower 3rd line. I learned that the third lines are good positions for subjects at my Creating Keepsakes send-off mega-crop last weekend (that's scrapbooking, all you non-crafters). That's worth another whole post; but now my study break's up!

What we did last weekend

Before this weekend's over:

We had a pretty normal weekend, but in case you're interested...

Paul made another batch of beer. In 2 weeks, we'll have 10 gallons to suck down: an amber and a pale ale. He's sparging the pale ale here.

I studied, mostly Epidemiology, but also did some QR (qualitative research): interview transcriptions. My left foot fell asleep after a while. See Why?
He's such a big fat baby.

This is finals week. Then comes spring break!

Holy Crap!

I got a letter from the governor - NOT the Gov-uh-nay-tah! Haley Barbour never replied to me before, not to mention my local representative...

"Thank you for sharing your ideas and concerns. I believe citizen
input is vital to a strong and healthy society and I urge your
continued involvement. Should your comments
require an additional response, appropriate staff will contact you.
I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Theodore R. Kulongoski
This was sent in response to a letter that I sent to him about a serious subject and South Dakota. With the assistance of one of the tons of web pages out there, YOU TOO could write your governor (and maybe even get an auto-response), whichever side of the issue you happen to be on.
So go exercise - your rights!

Hi Mom!

Wow, I was on TV last week! That was an odd, interesting, fun little event. Being someone who used to hate getting my picture taken when I was younger, I can't believe I went with the intent of doing that!
AM Northwest is a local morning show on the abc channel KATU2. That lady in black on the left was the interview person - she's about 6 feet tall! Then Erin, right next to me (not the Munchkin), the Baby Boot Camp Director, is about 5'(+1"?) tall! That was a fun interview to watch.
It was pretty fun, but we must have done about 30 lunges on the same cheek for the long segment (they don't want any 'down time'). OW!
If you come visit us, you too can see the exciting footage.

Okay, good study break!
