Trip to the Lake

There is a walk/bike trail that runs all the way around Lake Winona. It's about five miles long, and I walked it today with my mighty camera 'round my neck. My feet hurt, my legs hurt, my back hurts. Out of the 208 photos I took, only 74 of them were worth keeping. But it was totally worth it, because it was two uninterrupted hours of me and Nick time. No computers, no movies, no homework - just us and the camera and the ducks and geese.

This place is just too beautiful.

Ducks and Geese!

Ducks!!Quack, quack...

And geese!


Why, yes, I am easily entertained, thank you!

Sorta Moved

I'm sitting in the dark, eating cherries that still have their pips and stems, and listening to Bad Religion's "Boot Stamping on a Human Face Forever". My monitor is sitting on a box, and I'm sitting on the floor in front of it. There is no overhead light in this room, and the one lamp we brought on the first trip is in the bedroom and too much of a pain to move. The sheets have been washed, and the bed is set up and made; the kitchen's perplexing cupboard space has been dealt with though the purchase of a stepladder for my short self. As a result, most of the kitchen stuff has been successfully unpacked.

I'm sick and wish I could just nap all day tomorrow, but other than that, I feel pretty good about today.

Oh, and I just found out that the US womens team sabre took the bronze. Good going, ladies!

Holy Crap

I'm moving in two days. Holy crap. Commence to freaking out. Am I ready for this? I don't feel ready for this. There's still so much crap that needs to be done, stuff that needs to be packed up - this WHOLE APARTMENT needs to be cleaned... We never really clean around here... something that we'll have to work on in the new place.

I need to take more crap to the dumpster. How did I manage to accumulate so much junk???

I broke down my computer desk yesterday because it was a piece of junk - I'll just get a new one when we get settled.. For now, this is how I'm set up:

Maybe I'm Emo?

I suck at video blogs, FYI. From here on out, most video blogs should pertain to dancing and being silly.

There will be time for crazyness, and weirdness, and other things both strange and peculiar. Today, right now, there's pretty much just this.
