Busy Weeks Ahead

We're finally back from camping. Well we got back last night but by the time I showered, snacked and got my pajamas on.. I was too tired to anything besides sit on the couch and do nothing. But we're back and now I have no excuse for not blogging.

We saw some pretty cool things on our trip. As we were pulling into town we saw a ram on the side of the road. He was a tiny little scrawny thing. I felt so bad for him. He was all skin and bones and looked like he got the crap beat out of him. It was sad.
We also got to meet a new little friend while we were fishing. Our camp spot was right on the lake and if you walked about 10 steps out from in front of our tent you could jump to a little 'rock island'. I was sitting out there fishing when I happened to look over and see this staring back at me:

And he stayed there almost the entire time I was fishing off the rock. He let me get about a foot away from him, but that was as close as I got. I didn't want to scare him or make him run away so I just backed away. He sat about a foot and a half away from me the whole time. He was cute.

Here are some more pictures that I took while were there:

We had a great time! The only problem was that it was so windy it was blowing our tent over and knocking things over and breaking them. It was rediculous. I was so cold the intire trip, I was miserable. I had a shirt on, a hooded sweater over that, a wind breaker over that and I had a sleeping bag wrapped around me and I was still shivering. You'd think I was getting sick or something. I was like that the whole time too. Even though it was cold and windy, I still got a sunburn. My whole face is burnt and the tops of my hands. Those were the only things that were exposed. Everything else was under layers and layers of cloths. But we home now and it's warm outside, YIPPEE!

We have a VERY busy couple of weeks ahead of us. We have quite a few things planned in a short amount of time. I don't know how we're going to do it all. Jeff works two days this week. Tuesday and Wednesday, while I pack and get ready for our trip to Seattle for a few days. Were going for our scheduled IUI, so we're staying overnight. We leave for Seattle on Thursday and we also have a Seattle Mariner Baseball game planned that we're going to go see. I can't wait. Then on Friday we have our IUI. Saturday is my TC Mommies Meeting with a bunch of friends. It's like a mommies playdate, although I don't have kids, they all know that we're trying.

Then we have a day of church on Sunday. Monday through Wednesday of next week is the days before our trip to Vegas so we have to pack and get ready for those. Speaking of which we still have to find someone to watch our dog. We fly our Thursday. Have full days of fun up till Sunday, then we fly back. So we will be quite busy. I will be stopping on between now and then to post how things are going and how things went. Until then I bid you farewell and I hope you all are doing great.

PS: thank you for stopping by to my new visitors, you know who you are!

Yikes, I'd be scared to death seeing your little "friend". I'm not a camper but I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. The photos were beautiful!

Good luck with the IUI!
