The Sky is Falling!

Some tell the Mayans they were 355 days off. The world ended January 1st, 2012, or at least that's how it feels. Actually, it kind of feels like one of those scenes in a CSI episode where someone is drugged and you're looking at things from their point of view. Everything is swirling and you're nauseated but making any sense of what's happening to to you is out of the question.

An American Pastime

Today ends the third week of hubby being in Oregon. Only two to go and I realized the list I compiled for myself at the beginning of his trip, the list of things I wanted to do while he was gone, is still completely intact. In fact, I think it's gotten longer....more
