*So I thought I'd do another post of random thoughts like last week. I may start doing it more often. I just always had this idea in my head that each post needed to be about one specific thing and a certain length or it'd be a waste. But that just kept me from posting and stressing that I didn't have anything worthy to say.

*Both my kids graduated today!!! One from 8th grade and one from 4th.
Well........if you want to get technical, it was a Transition Ceremony (8th) and a Fourth Grade Promotion. I was stressing because they were only scheduled and hour and a half apart and I thought I was going to have to miss parts of both. But the first went very quickly. Actually they both did and all I missed was the cake and punch after Skowt's and before Tiger's for travel time. Then we took them out for dinner a Chili's to celebrate. Skowt also received an award for Academic Excellence! Yay Skowt!

*I think I've decided to stop doing the 52 photos of me thing. At first I was determined to finish. I know I need to hand the camera over more often in get in the picture but forcing myself to do it every week and posting it just doesn't work for me. I like the idea of regular features on a blog but on the other hand I feel pressured to do it every single week. I think I'll just stick to ones that don't need to be done every week and I can do when the mood strikes me. Plus, I don't know about you but I was getting sick of seeing my mug so often around here! lol

*I put the first season of the Showtime show Californication on my Netflix cue and got the first DVD a week or two ago. I wanted to check it out and see what it was like, find out what was going on before Rick Springfield makes his appearance this coming fall. I've only had a chance to watch one episode so far. I can't exactly pop it in around the kids! Um, wow! First episode and there were 4 different naked women so far. And from the article I saw today Rick's character is supposed to put the main character to shame. This should be interesting!

*Anyone ever do any geocaching? Hubby and I were walking some trails with the kids last week at a local county park and were discussing the possibility. Thought it may be something fun to do as a family.

*It's June 10th. It should be warm right? Then why am I still using my electric blanket at night and wearing sweats during the day? Hmm?

hey, Lynn, it's okay for your regular posts to be well, irregular LOL. Congrats to your girls. I feel bad because Lyric didn't get an 8th grade graduation. Stupid school! I did a little geocaching at our girl scout camp. That one is camp specific but I'm looking to see if we can do it when we go on vacation. it's very fun. I need to email you about coming down to do family photos. Are you still up for that??

Congrats to the girls! I haven't done geocaching, but I have a friend that does with her kids and they have a lot of fun with it.

I am curious about Californication, I guess they have them on iTunes for individual purchase so I will either do it that way for Rick's episodes or do the cable on-demand. Should be verrry interesting *wakka wakka* :).
