Is that a skunk I smell?

We've had a coupla visitors to our yard the past few days.  Yesterday, we had a deer.  I tried to get some pictures of it, but it was clear at the back of the property, so I don't know how well they'll turn out.  Today, we had a skunk in the yard.  That was up closer to the house, so I had the girls come inside until it went away.  The last thing I need are for the two of them to get sprayed, lol.  Our animal visitors have been the only highlights of the day. 
I've been busy with school work (Yes Jennifer.  I'm doing my homework too :P) and I've been making more signature lines in PSP.  Like I said, it's a lot of fun and interesting to know that I can be creative, lol.  Not much else is going on.  Same ol, same ol around here.  That's how we like it though.  Keep your bad news to yourself.

See How Talented I Am??

Check this out. I made it all by myself. ::Pat on the head please:: It was pretty easy to do and a lot of fun. I'm bored, lol. What can I say??

"Even a fool may be wise after the event" Homer

Well, since nothing is going on around here, it should be a good thing, right? Ohio can just drop off the face of the earth as far as I'm concerned. Or, maybe, when Canada takes over Vermont, they can take Ohio too. Only bad news and bad things come out of Ohio. And stupid people are the only people in Vermont. Who needs all that?

Anyway, the girls and I haven't been up to too much lately. They've been pretty bored cuz it rained to beat all hell yesterday, and it's cold today, so they've been stuck in the house. I've been keeping myself busy around the house, mostly just so that I can avoid doing my school work, lol. Anthropology is BORING, and my computer class just sucks. So, I cleaned out the car Thursday night. It's the first time the car's really been cleaned in months. We still had ash in it from the fires back in October, heheh.

Yesterday, I finished up the boxes in the living room. I had to take all the packing paper out of the boxes (about 35 of them) and put the paper into trash bags, and break down the boxes so the we can get rid of them. It took an entire box of 30 gallon trash bags to accomplish this task. May Paul Arpin and the movers of Liedke Moving Company burn in hell. But first, I hope they're painfully tortured and then they can burn in hell.

Today, we went grocery shopping. Woohoo. I did find a new way of getting to the grocery store so that I can avoid "downtown" Barre. You'd think that for such a small town, they would have smooth running traffic. But, I'm telling ya, it takes me half an hour to drive 10 measly miles to the grocery store because of the slow-butt drivers of Barre, Vermont.

You might be wondering why I don't mention C too much. Well, all he does is work. He had to take some butt-munch kid to Massachusetts to do pull ups of some stupid thing this morning. He had to get up at 4:30am to do this. He normally works from 7ish to 9-Midnight-ish every day. That's his life. And he doesn't get paid overtime either. In 3 months, he's had about 4 days off I think. So, if you think your job sucks, think again. Well, unless you're a recruiter too, heheh.

Oh! We watched Monster last night. Ya know, with the oddly misshapen Charlize Theron? Well, that was one weird movie. Charlize totally deserved the Oscar she got for that movie though. She did an awesome job. That being said, I don't think I'll ever want to see it again. Just too weird for me. Tonight, we're either gonna watch Cold Mountain, or The Butterfly Effect that came in the mail this morning. We'll see.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Front and back pictures of the lodge. The interior is very nice as well. They also have a family of bears that live next door. They are our neighbors as well since my neighbor that lives behind us has seen bear tracks in his garden, lol. Gotta love Vermont.  Anyway, my landlord owns and operates the Millstone Lodge.  Figured I should mention that since I snagged the pics from his website, lol.

"Is death the last sleep? No--it is the last and final awakening." Sir Walter Scott

Every other day seems to work best for me.  Who really needs to read what we do here in Vermont every single day of our lives??  I don't think too many people really care. 
Here's something to think about:
Should institutions such as libraries and public schools have filtering software on their computers?  In case you're unfamiliar with the term, filtering software is a program that monitors which websites people can access on a computer.  I'll give an example:  In San Diego county, California, two public high schools had children who viewed the beheading of an American hostage in Baghdad on the internet on the school computers.  Should they have had access to the website or should it have been blocked by filtering software?  Just food for thought...

"A thing worth having is a thing worth cheating for." W.C. Fields

I thought the title quote was funny. It's not necessarily a rule I live by.

I forgot to update yesterday. But, it's not a big deal because nothing interesting happened. The girls and I went grocery shopping and C got to come home early from work (9pm) cuz he had to get up at 3am this morning. Oh! We did see three deer cross the road on the way home yesterday. The girls were really impressed. We're easily entertained by nature, lol. I'm still waiting to see a bear in my yard. I just hope I get to the camera fast enough to take a picture.

We don't have any plans for today. I'm cleaning the downstairs, and the girls are cleaning their rooms upstairs, then I'm going to do some Anthropology homework and relax the rest of the day. Fun, fun. Hope everyone else has a more exciting weekend than we are.

Is Summer Really Here?

Today we went to Walmart and bought lawn games for the kids. Our bbq is finally on for tomorrow, and they'll be a few extra kids running around. C actually has today and tomorrow off if you can believe it. We're still in shock.

Yesterday, the kids and I made a mistake by attending a Family Day function for C's office. We drove 3 hours, with a friend and her 3 kids, to Mass. sat there for three hours, and then had the 3 hour drive home, for practically nothing. It's a long complicated story as to why, but let's just say that everyone at RS Springfield,MA sucks out loud. We had a lousy time and it will be the last family function that we attend. But, that's why I didn't update yesterday; I was gone all day, and exhausted by the time I got home.

Well, I hope everyone has a fantastic Fourth of July. I'll be back to update on Monday. Have a safe and holiday.
