I wish I had tales to tell but seriously? We've been just around. Not spectacularly busy but I just haven't gotten around to posting.

However I am completely and totally exhausted.

A word to the wise....if you decide to place multiple holds at the library - all at the same time- for, say, Veronica Mars, Battlestar Galactica and Big Love - be prepared to watch a helluva lot of tv after your kids are in bed. Why I can't just return them unwatched I don't know. But I've been up far too late every night for the past two weeks.

Like two a.m. too late.

Other accomplishments?

I am this close to being a tennis pro on the Wii.

I've started thinking about embroidery and knitting again.

Made reservations to take the kids camping for a few days in New Hampshire.

I bought glue sticks and pencils for back-to-school.

I made this shrimp the other night and it was a huge hit.

*yawn* Three more episodes of Big Love and I'm home free!

My boys do that with dvd's too - but then they realized that K can burn them and they can watch at a reasonable hour.
The pressure we put on ourselves!

You know my husband right, the one who tends to go a little sorry a lot insane every now and then.. Well he just bought the ENTIRE collection of Stargate SG1 on DVD... That's I don't know how many seasons... I know it was $300.00 though!

and you know what else...Smallville and Supernatural are coming out on DVD soon too, and Survivor is starting soon, and what the heck I still have to cook and clean and all the rest. UGH.

Oh and I just clicked over to read that shrimp recipe... now I just have to try it because she described it so well and I even laughed out loud as I read the entire thing :)

Have fun camping in NH :D

Oh.. and apparently I'm getting really good at this word verification thing, cause I thought for sure I was going to fail that last one ;)

We're camping in NH at the end of the month! Would be too funny to bump into you!
