(This picture really has nothing to do with this post. I just got flowers from our anniversary, and thought this post needed some photos!)
With today's economy in the toilet, I know a lot of people worried about their job situation. Us included. Murphy told dad that he should just get fired from his job, then he can be an astronaut. Kirby thinks dad should get a job at Wal-Mart, then we could see him when we go shopping. I've come up with my own list of job ideas, if worse comes to worse. Here they are:
1. Become a photographer for Play Girl Magazine! (Although the pictures would all be out of focus from laughing too hard, I’d get what’s known as “camera shake”!) 2. Become a belly dancing wedding photographer! I could shimmy while taking pictures of the cake, the first dance and so on…( again, I’d probably get camera shake!) 3. Collect all the dandelions out of our yard, then make dandelion jelly and sell it! 4. Write an 800 page book about my cat. I’ll title it “Memoirs of my Cat”. 5. Make something out of all the soda cans in our garage. We’ve got two large bags full, and we just can’t quit make it to the recycling center. (Actually Jared’s already started making things, we’re calling it “recycled art”, now we just need a venue to sell this stuff!) 6. Find a way to make money by playing Spider Solitaire! I’ve played it so much lately, that I’m now a pro! 7. Buy some spiky shoes and aerate lawns with them. 8. Brush up on my palm reading skills. I do have a couple of books on palmistry! 9. I could also tell card fortunes! 10. Spend hours at the DI going through junk, and then re-sale it on E-bay.
There you have it! Tammy's way of relieving stress! Gotta love creative writing!
And here's another picture of the flowers, with my cat! I could always sale cat posters!
I actually won a game of pool tonight! This is the first time I've ever won, I actually got the 8-ball to go into the pocket that I designated! It was exciting. That was the first game Jared & I played. The 2nd game, Jared won. By the third game, I got bored. I managed to get the que-ball in the hole, (more than once!) and Jared won that one by a landslide. Just thought I'd report that I actually won!
We also went to the Zen center. It was interesting. Although at first, everyone was just sitting there, being quiet (supposedly meditating). After 10 minutes of this, I was starting to get concerned that this was going to be the whole hour and half meeting! After 15 minutes, some dude that looked like the leader showed up. I was glad, but then he just sat down and meditated too. After 20 minutes I was thinking how I could quietly get up and leave.....luckily there was this gong at 30 minutes, and then the discussion began. It was interesting. It was more of a discussion about Zen than the actual practise. I think for now I'll stay a Mormon-Taoist!
You know you're a photographer when you have thousands of pictures, and you're NOT in ANY of them!
McGyver meets the Nutty Professor!
This is my man, my main squeeze. He can make a marble shooter out of a weed whacker engine!
My baby's in 1st grade already! And luckily he loves it! He likes recess and math the best. He even likes hot lunch and has shocked us all by actually EATING his lunch! This smart cookie likes Bionicles, Magnetix and Transformers. This kid makes us laugh, and he is a great big brother
This adorable child keeps us on our toes. He loves Transformers, and playing with his big brother and his friends. He's quick to smile and laugh, and he always tells you what he is thinking. He is a good helper and an all around jolley guy to hang out with
Our pyscho cat. We are seriously looking into Kitty Prozac for her!
Yep, this is our lazy lion wannabe! He only weighs 17lbs!
Here's our rats, Tiger and Jr. They are snuggly, and for some reason, they always pee on me, (but nobody else!)
Corneata and Zack
We tried raising chickens this year, and I was surprised at how social and fun to watch they are. I loved the way they walk! Our poor chickens met with disaster though, the nieghbors dogs ate them. I guess having a fence, or even a proper chicken coop is neccessary. Who knew?
