Picture, 1000 Words, Blah, Blah, Blah

I downloaded pix from my camera.

Thank God for the holidays so I can paint my toe nails a dark color. The light pink I use in the summer just would not hide that black toenail.

For some reason, the flash fades it out. Trust me… the toenail is BLACK at the base. Love that nasty blister callus on the right foot.

Not quitting my day job to be a foot model...

And for TGOO, a picture of Mr. Fluffykins, my car mascot. Every child, teenage or not, who has ever ridden in my car, knows Mr. Fluffykins.

Mr. Fluffykins was acquired at last year’s school carnival and just never seemed to leave…

And last but not least, every car needs a Popsicle catapult. This was made as Bones was working on his Engineering Merit Badge for his Arrow of Light.

The catapult has been removed. I could see things being flung in the car and that just wasn’t going to happen on my shift, so its now safely in the house.

Did I ever show y’all my crushed tent? This was from the camping trip from hell… the one where we slept in the van for fear the wind storm was going to snap a pole, collapsing the tent upon us, forever emotionally scarring Bones more than the very first camping trip from hell.

Obviously… it snapped a pole. I think it was 2AM…

I need to dig out this picture for the boys as proof I did some 'mom award' winning things for them when we all end up in therapy in 20 years...

Such pretty feet.

You should see them now after this 16 miles. They've got blisters all over them...

Bou: You are using Thorlo socks, right?

Clearly, "Bou is the winner of our discount tent."

BTW, Thorlo is the way to go.

I bought a very thin pair of socks that wick in the runner's section of the sports store. I don't think I saw any Thorlo socks...

I was doing research and someone said they wear TWO pairs of thin socks so the friction is not from sock to foot, but then sock to sock.

Bob- I had extra tent poles!!! I have to say, as much as I do enjoy camping, I'm over sleeping in a tent. When my boys are past this, I'll be OK with it.
