I feel special

Woo hoo, I have been featured on swapbot's blog. I was fortunate enough to have one of the founders/person who runs site as my partner & I took the opportunity to try to say Thank you. I really do love swapbot. She was tickled by my rock. Here is link to pic on blog. I am still pokey & not much up to writing, but will get to more one of these days.

Should you have a funeral for a camera?

My camera has finally had it. I am so sad. It has been having issues & I have been complaining, but honestly was not ready to replace. I love my little camera. So now I have to go buy a new one. It's funny, just a year & a half ago I hardly ever took pics. I could go weeks without touching my camera. Now one day seems like torture. Ugh. Hopefully they'll have something good at the PX. Just waiting for them to open. Would look on the economy, but then that opens a whole new set of issues that just are not worth it to mess with (language, voltage, does it sync w/ American stuff? I just don't know.) It is not actually completely gone yet though, just can't change ANYTHING. not the flash, picture type, any of that. Stuck on auto & flash is weird & yellow. I also have bees. I need to find some bee killer stuff. Went to grill last night & all these bees started flying around when we took off the cover. turns out they built a nest. 1 hour til the stores open & hopefully can take care of both these issues.

I am NOT going to apologize!

I have come to the conclusion, that I am just not going to apologize for not getting on here anymore. I am who I am & if that means being a bit of a slacker, so be it. I need to stop the guilt. I did make my blog prettier though :) You like? Been a busy bee & an ill one as well. We're approaching the end of the school year - Thank God - next year has got to go better. Robin has done fine, just a bit of a struggle with Chemistry, but is finishing fine. Zach has had a roller coaster with his grades with the move, but has performed his usual miraculous save in the end with all except we're still waiting to find out about Language Arts. The 2nd half of 4th grade (since the move) has been a real challenge for Ivy, & has shaken her love of school. Hopefully we can get her a teacher she clicks with for next year. Last day is next Thursday. Whew. Robin went to prom last Friday. My little boy has grown so fast. He looked soooooo handsome - see...
The weather has been gorgeous here. Blue skies & great temps. Even when it does get rainy, it doesn't stick around too long. We're dog sitting an ewok this summer. I am already getting attached. Sera is bonding with him, but Catamia is NOT happy. Actually, not sure how we'll part in the fall, but won't mind the lack of barks. He has one ear-piercing bark, & he sure likes to use it.
Both of our amazing Girl Scout leaders are leaving us & I have agreed to be co-leader of Ivy's troop next year, (will snag Rob to help when he's back though.)
Well, that's the highlights. I happen to be so tired now & have a big day ahead tomorrow at Tucherland.
