bird watching is for....the birds!




bugs? ...not birds :)








i LOVE living vicariously
through my children's cheerfulness!
way to be HAPPY j-10!!!

a chip clip = a birds beak
a cup = a stomach


What goes in....must come out!
got poop...er...scat?

...you can tell what a bird eats by playing with the poop!




birdie birdie in the sky...
please don't doo doo in my eye...
i wont fret and i wont cry...
i'm just happy cows don't fly!

[some things never change,
no matter the generation! :) ]





...never too big for the baby swing...
i hope! ♥

APP: caN'ts a woRd fOr qUittERs

YEP! and i quit.....seriously!

pAin with a capital AAA!!! APP!

this past sundAy C-14 asked me to join her for an i-pod workout called "hurricane".... being SuNdAy i figured it would be somewhat like a sunday drive.
NOT... it was more like just this side of heck and a torture chamber.

i was watching her ability to do all the squats and crunches and who knows what they called the moves, i was in way too much pain to even care.

all i know is that you can make it look like you are doing the workout if you keep a keen eye on the other person and quickly move when they look your way.

since i had been sitting in a chair at the dining room table for a week studying for finals i figured a little workout, some stretching, getting my heart...to beat...would be helpful....again, NOT!!!

I barely crawled up the four flights of stairs to take my final bright and early MoNdAy morning!
a classmate asked me if i was okay,
i can only imagine
what she was thinking
happened to me.....

i replied back...
"oh, i got my butt kicked

by a 14 year old
and some i-pod app
called a "hurricane"!!!

Seriously, the muscles we worked out didn't even exist back in the 80's....or maybe the problem is I haven't really worked them since the 80's.


either way, i still can't walk very well, and sitting is not an option because i am completely unable to stand up without help. I feel like I need a walker to safely go to the bathroom [TMI???]

in the future I will avoid anything that sounds similar to a destructive weather pattern...i forecast that i will most certainly take a sUndAy drive rather than a little light workout.
...and truly I QUIT.....
CANT...is my word for today!!!!!!



interestingly a while back i blogged about same daughter telling me that she was
"she had an APP for it!!!!"

if it works to learn the piano as well as her little APP worked my butt...then I say way to go i-pod!!!!
is there nothing you can't APP these days???

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
