PETA Wouldn't Like Me

I think I just got a birthday tick bite.  I just found a tick scurrying up my arm and now I'm frantically looking for his friends, who hopefully haven't joined him in his greed for a little O+ blood.  Yuck, yuck, yuck.  But we had fun burning him with matches.  Should have thought to check myself for them earlier after prancing through the woods at noon.  

Ugh, I really don't want to get Lyme Disease.  Again.  When I was fourteen I got bit real good right on my butt, of all places.  Not a fun spot to get a huge red welt because you can't help but sit/lie upon it all the livelong day.  Tee hee. I just remember riding the rides at Dorney Park in agony.  Poor me.  

Oh, thanks for the birthday messages!!!!

S'more What?

I'm on a walking team at work--we're doing a 10,000 step challenge against 100 other teams in my company. Wanna know what we get if our team wins?  Tee-shirts. Ooooo babbby.  I WANT one!

We call ourselves team Chester Copperpot Howie Mr. Belding S'more What?  We actually submitted that name to the HR department.  It was a collaboration of sorts, as you can probably imagine.  And I'd like to think we're gonna win.  Our team is comprised of athletic people (I use the term loosely to include myself, of course).  And we're hardcore.  Anthea's kicking butt.  She took 25,000 steps one day!  How is that even possible??  That makes up for the 1,000 step day I spent walking from the couch to the kitchen to the bathroom and back.  Just kidding. I've been walking everywhere!  And wearing my pedometer at the gym of course.  I took the trash out 4 times one day just to add steps. I'm a maniac---I'll do anything.  Wish me luck!

We'll miss you, little Bean.
In peace.

it's just . . .

Only at our apartment would I trip and fall over a red bowling ball left absentmindedly next to the bed.  Yes, it's time to clean up.  

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind (but a good, cleansing sort of twister) of finishing school, celebrating milestones, laughing crazily with good friends, and traveling to new places to visit those I love.  (Ohio was much cooler than I'd imagined, I must admit.)  Geez, and I thought my month off  school was going to be quiet.   But I wouldn't have it any other way.
