Mind like a sieve


I've only been to the pool three times, and two happened to be on Mondays - cleaning day.

Why I don't buy fancy cheese very often

Dinner and board games


I finally got around to inviting coworkers over. Made a huge Italian feast. Baked penne with eggplant, baked ziti with ham and ricotta, and roasted asparagus with parmesan. Plus, I made fresh bread and our friends brought an awesome cheese platter. Then, for dessert, I made a plum cake and my coworker added a tiramisu. We got so full on food that we only had the time for one board game. I won, of course, hehe.

Fresh fruit


It wasn't quite that bad....but I did have to wash my chin, neck, and hands of peach juice.

Newbies


Convinced some new people to play board games. Once they make it through the extensive instructions, the fun can begin.

Simple food

It's harsh outdoors


If you haven't already learned from previous posts, I am very allergic to fire ants. Hence, the immediate fear of a sudden swarm of ants on my foot. They were just black ants, but the bites are very similar to mosquitoes in that they itch and swell like crazy.

Everyone's a critic

Normally, whenever my parents visit I like to cook a more ambitious meal because they are willing to eat anything. But apparently "anything" doesn't include celery root.

I have a problem

Twin wars

Apparently, being pregnant with twins makes all symptoms of pregnancy even worse.

A different kind of dork

Last day with the bulldog


Bigos went home today after spending the weekend with us. He really does seem to seek us out when he has a particularly large amount of drool.

Midnight release




I mainly got a lot of shocked expressions and whispered comments everytime I walked by a group of teens. One group actually did ask to take a picture with me. I also got dirty looks from some of those on the "Team Edward" side. Overall, it was fun.

All day in the laboratory


Not really a scary werewolf.

Costumes!


I decided on a werewolf. I am a member of "Team Jacob" anyway ^_^
