But anyway, here is a quick update for those that were wondering.
I finally signed up for Karen Russel's aweseome photograpy class . I was on the waiting list for a while and finally got in and I am happy to say that it is getting oh so close... I got my cute binder yesterday... It was empty, so I couldn't cheat and read ahead, but it gives me that little rush knowing that it will be starting soon.
We are going Jeeping in New Hampshire in September and again to Maine in October for the Jeep Jamboree. I am really looking forward to that. Hopefully we will get our new mud tires soon so we can keep up with the big boys.
So that is my life in a nutshell.... still boring! But sometimes boring is a good thing. ;)

Here's hoping that 2009 is happy, healthy, prosperous and friend-filled (and better than 2008 was!)

Always tell the people you love that you love them.
You never know when it will be the last time.
People you care about most in life are sometimes taken from you too soon
My heart aches... my soul is bruised.
My best friends are broken into a million pieces... and I can't put them back together, and that hurts the most.

LOVING summer and having the top down.
Had a blast at Danielle's bachelorette party - boy, did I feel old though. Brought back many memories... some good, some not so good. (thank you to all those that "babysat" me when I had too much to drink... you know who you are... It was my turn this time, and I'm glad I could do it for someone else.........)
The olympics have been amazing. I have so much pride and admiration for all those athletes. I have never had the want to do anything like that. Never. The only thing I could ever get a medal in is probably dessert..... GO FOR THE GOLD, I always say! =)
Rocky is still Rocky. High maintenance, and even though he is now over a year old, he is still very much a puppy. We are looking forward to our anniversary weekend. We are trying something different... www.lazydoginn.com It is a B&B that allows you to take your dog with you... how cool is that?! Although, thank goodness they have a kennel as well, so if it doesn't work out so well in the room, we can banish him to the dungeon.
Only one week to go until Danielle's wedding. I can't believe it is here already. She will make such a gorgeous bride. I have volunteered my amature photography skills for the day. I hope I get at least one great one.... No pressure, though... right????
Speaking of cameras.... my little camera is broken. done... no more.... i loved the convenience of bringing it with me every where I went. I love my XTi, but I don't have a pocket book big enough for that... and I wouldn't want to. It cost me a kidney to buy it....
Well, that's all for now.
Enjoy summer - what's left of it anyway.

He actually did very well. We were both pleasantly surprised. Of course, prissy boy wouldn't lay down in the dirt, so we had to go to Job Lot and buy him a $10 rug! "HOLY CRAP - I CAN'T BELIEVE HE IS BEING SUCH A PRINCESS - ARE WE SURE HE IS A BOY DOG???"
His favorite spot is always with his daddy though. Check out this pic.... their legs are the same length.... "HOLY CRAP - HE REALLY IS LONG LEGGED"
Another eye opening experience came for Kathy when I went over to buzz the boys for the summer. She wasn't quite sure how she felt about it, and if she new well enough, I'm sure she would have said "HOLY CRAP - THAT IS SHORT!" But they both came out so handsome... Here is Grant for his first ever buzz cut... (holy crap - i love those boys!)
Of course, not to be outdone, on our way home I had a moment. We got to the end of the street and there in full view was a rainbow... "HOLY CRAP - PULL OVER, I NEED A PICTURE"
Now the most recent, and probably most life changing holy crap moment came yesterday... and today.... Look what showed up in my driveway..... I have always wanted one; before I even had a license, this was my dream car; most people dream of sports cars or overly expensive luxury cars... not me... THIS is what I always wanted:
But, I never thought I would want this color. I always had my eye on a candy apple red one. But this one just called to me. I love the green now. I don't see this color everywhere. It is very sharp. So anyway, guess what... "HOLY CRAP - I AM NOW THE OWNER OF A 2007 JEEP WRANGLER 4-DOOR" "HOLY CRAP - HOLY CRAP - HOLY CRAP". It was done totally the wrong way. It was a drive by. No intentions of purchasing. No intentions of talking numbers. No intentions of test driving. No intentions of bringing it home for the night. No intentions of any of it. But, the devil on my right shoulder kept saying "this is what you have always wanted. why not just go for it. you know you will love it once you get it. you know you want it. just DO IT!" While the angel on my left shoulder was telling me, "gas prices are going sky high. food prices are going up. most people are trading in for SMALLER vehicles, not bigger tires! the economy is really bad right now. you have no right even thinking about buying a vehicle." heh..... I always did hear better from my right ear....
Anyway, here she is. My dream car. The green machine. I am happy, scared, ecstatic, worried and elated all at once.
I can assure you without a doubt in my head, my next "HOLY CRAP" moment will most certainly be on July 22nd when I have to make the first car payment...... Holy crap is right.
Before I go I would like to send out great big hugs to Danielle... she is feeling a little "wired" today and I want her to know that everything will be OK.
