Here Goes Nothing.....

Well I'm back so I guess I'm going to try blogging for the summer to see if I like blogging. I'm biting the bullet and going for it. I'm sitting in the garage currently hiding from my kids with a lap top. I love my kids. It's just that it's been a really long day of togetherness and I think sitting in the garage alone sounds divine while they watch TV.

I've decided that our family needs to get out of the house and see the world. Okay, so it's really just a plan to get the kids off the couch and away from the TV. So I'm now running Camp Mom for two unhappy campers. On today's agenda was a trip to Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma. It's been on my list of things to see for awhile but I hadn't had a chance to get there until now. I loved it! My kids on the other hand only wanted to eat there way through the Zoo. Every where we went they wanted snacks, drinks, food, etc. Not really in line with the plan I had to take a few extra pounds off M-ster this summer. I did give in once to ice cream but I held steady and won the battle for fruit cups at the end of the day. It's hard for me to blame these kids for their snack attacks since I pretty much was the same when I was a kid. Great.
Back to Zoo talk: The lions and the polar bears were my favorite. Not because they had a cool habitat but because they were actually moving around and made it fun for us to watch. So many times you go to the Zoo and the animals are all sleeping. No wonder my kids hate going to the Zoo. I never really thought about this until now but the animals aren't really moving around for us much at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. They should give the animals some caffeine in the afternoons. That probably would help a bit. I know it does for me.
After driving home after a glorious day in the sun, the kids announced the drive was too long and they preferred to never go again. Seriously, some one needs to help me with my boys! One hour is too long??? What is wrong with these kids? If we were going to Wild Wave, I don't think the kids would care if we drove for 3 hours as long as they got to ride on roller coasters!

Camp Mom is on a weekend break tomorrow since it's Saturday. I think I'm going to run out and get my nails done since we don't have much going on this weekend. If it wasn't raining we'd be out on our boat. What stinky weather we've had this spring! We've not made it out once this season to use the boat due to rain on the weekend. I do thing we'll have much better days soon to enjoy it but for now it remains in our driveway. I can't wait until things warm up around here so we can swim in Lake Sammamish again! Last year the water was nice and warm and the kids started using our three man tow that we pull behind the boat. They can't wait to do this again and I can't wait to just have warmer weather!

To Blog Or Not To Blog?

So I've had this blog site forever and I've posted absolutely nothing. It's not that I don't have anything to say. Sometimes I just can't hold it in and have to speak even when I know that I don't have an audience. Talking, saying, speaking, all my thing. So, why haven't I blogged? Hmmm.... excuse number one is the kids and the Microsoft Man. Excuse number two is that I take on way to may other projects that sometimes suck the very life out of me but I can't stop myself from volunteering. IE: 74 costumes for a musical in 6 weeks, 80 water balloons, and 30 stuffed mice. I'm exhausted just thinking about what I volunteered to do this year for M's class. Yowza!!! Excuse number three: Once I start I'll feel a new obligation to blog. I can see myself posting daily, hourly, minutely.... scary!

I'm going to make a decision soon though and either bite the bullet or I'm going to set this moose free. Did I really write moose free? I'm tired and it just typed itself. I'll ponder this blog site thing over a good night sleep and maybe I'll have an answer in the morning that I can live with.
To Blog or Not to Blog! That is my question without an answer. Good night!
