Nope, not dead- just been hibernating. I hope I didn't worry any of you. By popular request, I am moving the Tarantula post down the blog scroll, out of easy viewing. YOU are all welcome :) (though, shame on you). p.s. Spidey is currently stationed on my kitchen counter enjoying her summer break and freedom from constant tapping on her tank window as class pet.

Any ways, HAPPY SUMMER TIME!! Funny, I am supposed to be sitting on my rear end eating Bon Bons and watching re-runs (there is still time for all of that), but it seems I have been running like a chicken with my head cut off. Summer started with some serious deep cleaning on the ol' Carver bunker and some gruling Girl's Camp planning.... then an awesome trip back East to NY, DC, and Boston with Hunter's Mom (my travel buddy); afterwards Girl's Camp, beachin' @ Bear Lake, and then back to serious cleaning on the Carver Bunker. Way fun. Which brings us up to date. The plan today (surprising I have thought ahead), I think, is going to go like this: Check my email (first time in 4 weeks), blog (first time in 5 months....), maybe do the dishes, maybe shower (don't judge), and off to the pool with Liz and Lucy to have my first session of farmer tan removal, drink lots of Diet Coke, and eat Bon Bons (does anyone know what Bon Bons even are?). Wish me luck, I'm exhausted already. :)

To push Spidey further down the blog scroll I am including a few pictures of my trip back East for your PLEASURE!! You are welcome!


Notice: Upon closer examination, Linda is groping the Statue of Liberty

This guy was selling Obama condoms real cheap. Puts new meaning to the phrase being "in bed with the government."

Hiding my true feelings for the Speaker of the House. Yup, that's a Birdie behind the hand :)


Katie and I rubbing the bull's nose, it's supposed to bring you good luck and we did get to see Nicolas Cage that night..... I'd say it worked :)

Welcome back to the blogging world! Although, I will miss Spidey. Maybe I just need to stop by your place to visit :) Hope your summer is going fantastically well!

I saw your comment on my blog and suspected that there might also be an updated your blog so I went to take a gander. I have to admit when your playlist started I took a little walk down memory lane to the days of Bullin and Pineview. Has it really been almost 9 years? I'm glad to see you are getting some great travels in during your summer break. Oh, and did you know that I married a Special Ed teacher (well, he just quit teaching for a desk job at Hill AFB–-pays more)? We should get together sometime. Take care, Lauren

Kristin! I didn't even know you had a blog. I clicked on Dave's facebook picture, and noticed the address. I promise I'm not stalking Dave...I noticed the picture and was trying to figure out where it was at. Yes, I am THAT cool...wondering where a background in a picture is at on a Saturday night at 10:00. I'm pretty awesome. Anyway, I'm glad I found your blog. I love the Obama condom, and your description of it! So funny! Anyway, hopefully we'll see you at book club this week, and we're going to plan a bbq at our house sometime this week or next!

Hey Kristin! Glad to see that you're back in the blogosphere. However, you'd better not be announcing that you went to Bear Lake when you didn't even stop in Logan to say hi! Looks like you're having a fun summer. Don't worry, I understand the shower dilemma. :)
