Am I ready for this?

Ok daycamp was just practice tomorrow morning we leave for the real deal. Posted by Hello
4 days away from home camping in a Fort! He's practiced getting dressed on his own without being reminded 100 times. He's practiced bathing himself, trying not to have to remind him to wash all of his hair. I got him special chocolate shampoo, to make hair washing fun. He's had a million questions.

Perry: "Mommy will you be there with me?"
Mommy: "Yes honey I'll be at camp, I may not be right beside you the whole time, but I won't be far away."
Perry: "Mommy, will you be sleeping in the same room as me?"
Mommy: "No, honey Mommy's can't sleep in the same room as the kids, but I'll be one room away."
Perry: "Mommy, what if I have to poop, can I take my gameboy"
"I'll take a magazine."
Mommy: "ok, make sure it's one of my magazines"
Mommy: "Do you think they'll mind if I smuggle in my IPOD?"
~I'm willing to take that chance.....LOL

Dude can dance.

Sometimes you just gotta work it! I just know one of these days my husbands going to do this to me! Trying to catch up on stuff before me and Perry take off to camp. I am sure I'll have lots of fun stuff to talk about and fun pictures to post after camp. If you don't have the address and you wanna send us some camp mail love e-mail me and I'll hook you up with the address. You'd have to send it this weekend.

Hide and Seek anyone? They play so cute together!  Posted by Hello

Can't believe she's 12....where did the time go? She's a great kid at 12, a lot like her Aunt Jodi in many ways, and a lot like her Mom in many ways....both could be for the good or bad. LOL.....Love you Ashton! Posted by Hello

This is the hill we, yes we meaning the middle aged women and the children climbed up on our quest for a geochache. This was from the way back, and we had them climb up without us to show how steep this freakin hill was! Posted by Hello

Couple of middle aged women. This was at mile marker 4 I believe. I will say I do look slimmer than last summer. Posted by Hello

Conversation while hiking....

Aunt Jodi: Hey Ashton how's my butt look, (she's hiking behind me.) and be nice!

Ashton: Ummm.....

Aunt Jodi: Ahhh come on, you gotta have something kind to say. I know it's big, but what do you think.

Ashton: It looks like it should look for a women your age.

Aunt Jodi: Good answer, sorry Layni (Ashton's Mom) next year when you 36 your butts going to blow up!

Maddie and Ashton...cute! Posted by Hello

oh looks like I'll have to post them one at a time....I get it! Posted by Hello

I uploaded several pics. Not sure how it will handle it. We camped this weekend. Theres nothing I love more in life than a nice weekend of rainfree camping. We think the curse of Harold the "rainking" has been broken. No rain at all this weekend. And seriously since we've been camping together for 5 years, it's rained everytime. Except the times Harold wasn't with us. We hiked our booty's off, Layni, Maddie, Ashton and I.  Posted by Hello

God Knows.....

Ever feel overwhelmed with responsibility? Me....right now! And it's not really anything huge, just feel like it's all me. Adult BS, I guess. Not even PMSing or anything, just overwhelmed with life in general I think. Feel like theres not enough time to do the things I enjoy, like hanging out with my friends, being a small group leader, playing with my kid, doing artwork, spending time with my husband, ect.....sure theres enough time to do maybe 1 or 2 of those but not all of them. And then add in the stuff you'd also like to be doing such as mission work, reading more, more church stuff, going on trips, volunteer for cubscout stuff, volunteer for school stuff......not enough time. I've not been a small group leader for like 2 years now, and I've missed the connection with people alot. Sure I still connect upon occasion but it's more unplanned, and spuratic. So past couple weeks I've felt a bit out of touch, just a little empty. I skipped church last week, which had a lot to do with it. So went this sunday, it was like God was there waiting for me, as if he knew exactly what I needed. I am not a touchy feely type person, I will gladly take a hug if you come at me with it, but I am in no way shape or form a hug initiator. Just to clear that up, incase there were some questions. But first person I see as soon as I get out of my car, is my former small group co-leader and her cute little family. She's just one of those people, who you know is completely genuine. When she says "I've been thinking about you", you know she really has, and she's genuinely happy to see you. Love that! She doesn't even have to say she's been thinking about you, you can tell when she looks at you. Not a lot of people like that in the world if you know someone like that appreciate them. So then the message......wasn't even an in your face type message it was just what I needed. Full version here. Here are the points, it was on the story of the women at the well John 4:7-30

God knows we're outsiders
God knows we don't know who he is.
God knows what we could be.
God knows all our failures.
God knows our religion is never enough
God knows we'll be inviters when we know him.

"I read in a periodical the other day that the fundamental thing is how we think of God. By God Himself, it is not. How God thinks of us is not only more important, but infinitely more important." ~ CS Lewis

Sometimes we just need someone to be there and desire nothing in return.

Mail Love!

Heres some mail art. I sent it to a complete stranger. Hopefully I'll make some new pen pals, haven't had a pen pal in years. The internet has taken away the joy of letter writing, and now with my discovery of mail art theres no stopping me. Before e-mail, I'd write letters all the time. And received quite a few as well. That's your official assignment, if you are reading this, send somebody some mail love! Mail Art has been so much fun. I've only got 2 peices of mail but they were both fun and from another state. I sent out 9 pieces of love in the past 2 days. Fun Fun Fun! Posted by Hello

That's just what I'm feeling. Not sure why? Perry's been kind of blah since friday, and can't get him to eat much, which frustrates me.

Ron (my husband) is so not a joiner. Theres tons of stuff I'd like to do, but doing things alone or just with the kid sucks after a while. Wow nothing inspirational here...better move on.....skipped church this morning too. Better go read Wendi's blog, she's got ALOT more meaningful stuff to read today.

Saturday, June 04, 2005

I found a new blog to stalk, Wendi, really great stuff going on there. I am making all sorts of cool friends. Gotta love blogland! Great quote she had on there I am gonna have to steal and put it here only bigger!

"Quit telling your God how big your mountain is, and start telling your mountain how big your God is."

man I so did that with Perry and school stuff the past couple weeks. At first I was like I can't do this, this is way too big for little ole unassertive me, and then I was like wait this is my kid.....don't mess with my kid, said a PRAYERand said BRING IT!

I is for I think I found a new love.........

I am so in love with music right now. Trust me an Ipod will save you from cube hell. And the music right there in you ear buds, all up in your head it's like your own personal concert right in your cube. Love IT! Check out the new love, of which will be my next whole album download. Five for Fighting. Click on music and listen to "If God Made You" great cube crying song. Heres the words.

If God Made You
"Hey Kid… Your time has come to changeThough I need you more than I’ve needed anyone in any way tonightHey Kid… I know it won’t be longThe Captain’s calling…come to see you back where we belong
Something inside me is breakingSomething inside says there’s somewhere better than this…
Sunset sailing on April skiesBloodshot fire clouds in her eyesI can’t say what I might believeBut if God made you he’s in love with me
Hey Kid…Do wishes count at allCan you give me a sign…give me anything I won’t tell a soul you toldHey Kid…Will you hold me when I sleepWill you find me when the tide decides that I got to leave
Something inside me is breakingSomething inside says there’s somewhere better than this…
Sunset sailing on April skiesBloodshot fire clouds in her eyesI can’t say what I might believeBut if God made you he’s in love with me
Sunset sailing on April skiesBloodshot fire clouds in your eyesI can’t say what I might believeBut if God made you he’s in love with me
Something inside me is breakingSomething inside says there’s somewhere better than this my love
Sunset sailing on April skiesBloodshot fire clouds in her eyesI can’t say what I might believeBut if God made you he’s in love with me
Sunset sailing on April skiesBloodshot fire clouds in your eyesI can’t say what I might believeBut if God made you… he’s in love with me…"

I is for Major Ink Action......

That's whats going on here. I'm taking a mail art class, and I went ink crazy on some postcards. Totally fun. That was the first assignment. I'd post one here but I seriously don't feel like scanning it, not sure if I will before I send it off. My second assignment had specific instructions to restructure some junk mail, it's done, but I don't think it's all that great. Who ever gets it will find it to be a work of art I am sure. 2 more days of school.......THANK GOD! Except now to maintain some sort of structure for Mr. P for the summer, so he doesn't have a hard time transitioning when school starts in the fall. I am such a disorganized person, it's hard, and odd that my child has ADD, God truly has a sense of humor. So I plan to do one big fun thing each month. June is cubscout camp....Lord help me.....I am going, those boys will wear my fat arse out! July I think he'll do daycamp, and then August we get to spend the night in the Loveland will be SPOOKY can't wait! The castle should be great fun.
