Wow. I've been MIA on the blog for a while. I'm kind of embarrassed.

The truth is...I have nothing to report. I go to work, I go to PT, I go home, I ice my foot. That's about it.

I have been doing a little more cooking lately. Since I decided to cut way back on salt, fat, sugar, and processed food in general, I've been trying to find food that's healthy and tasty. I was doing really well, until I had to go back on prednisone a few weeks ago. Now, everything I eat is the greatest thing I've ever eaten. I could be gnawing on a shoe, and it would be the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. Disturbing, I know.

And football season starts next there's something to be excited about.

OH - my next post will be the 500th. Goodness...time flies. Maybe I'll have some sort of epic post. We'll see.

star gazing

I attempted to watch a meteor shower for the first time in my life last night. Even at 10:00 at night, it was hot. I saw a satellite or two, and found the Big Dipper and the North star. A lot of planes were going by overhead. It's always fun to think about where they came from and where they are going. I saw 3 meteors in an hour and a half.

Then coyotes started howling. They sounded like they were all around, and coming closer, so I went to bed.

I guess if I want to see meteors, I need to move to Smallville...

We had a great time visiting Aunt Martha and Uncle Dan in Virginia. We hit the Bass Pro Shop in search of a birthday gift for a certain sister-in-law. It was really hard to decide between the giant fish pillows:

The horsey margarita mix holder:

The shiny rainbow fish mailbox:

A lifetime supply of peach rings:

A fish tail fly swatter:

A pink four wheeler (I couldn't get Fred & Shirley to go in with me on this one):

A catfish can coozie:

A pink fishing pole (which she may need when we all go to the rivah in a few weeks):

Nothing felt like just the right gift, so Aunt Martha and I gave up and used all our quarters at the shooting range. What fun!

My football tickets came on Monday. That means kickoff is one month from today! YAY!

In other news, I'm heading to VA to see my Aunt Martha and Uncle Dan for a few days. I haven't been anywhere this summer and I need to get out of town before I go crazy. I'm making Rachael take care of Oozey and Frank while I'm gone. She's a good sister!

The foot is still a little gimpy. I'm back on prednisone again...hopefully this will be the last round. I'm seriously ready for a bionic foot.

So, um, that's about it for now. Hopefully I'll have something more exciting to report next time...
