Getting my butt out of bed

I got up early this morning, and had energy for once. Lately I've been waking up still tired no matter how many hours of sleep I've had. So, I took advantage of it and did about 4 loads of laundry, dusted the living room and family room. Oh yeah, and cleaned part of the kitchen. I can't believe I accomplished so much and it's only 10:30 am!! Maybe I should do this more often, get up early and get moving. Sigh, I'm not a morning person though. My energy picks up around 8pm in the evening, that's why I stay up so late. Hence, that's why I'm tired in the morning. It's a vicious cycle, haha. So later, I think I'll call my sister and ask her if she wants to go to a movie. I want to see the new Halloween remake by Rob Zombie, it looks awesome! Have a great day!

Kelly, (chica) did a post on her efx2 site about handwriting. Everyone posted samples of their handwriting, including Kelly. Here is mine. It's a reality check to see it on paper in front of me like this. I certainly need lines to write on by the looks of it. Sheesh.

Very cute

One afternoon a wealthy lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop, and he got out to investigate. He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?" "We don't have any money for food." the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass." "Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you." the lawyer said. "But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there under that tree." "Bring them along." the lawyer replied. Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us also." The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!" "Bring them all, as well." the lawyer answered. They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you." The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high!"

Long time no see.

I've been very busy on the new efx2, trying to get my blog together. It seems to be pretty nice so far. I'm trying to learn codes, haha, yeah right. Here are more pics of the bears at my camping trip. This is the bear we called cinnamon. She/he would boldly come by our cabin and van everyday. See our van next to her? I had just come around from the other side of the van right before she showed up, yikes! Here comes the black bear again, "Blackie", see the mess he made? We had to clean that up twice a day the entire camping trip. I only had one picture left in the camera when I came home, so thought I'd show you what happened to all my potted plants in my backyard. I forgot to tell my son to water them, and of course he didn't think of it. This happened to about 6 of my plants. *sigh* I had a great visit this past weekend with my son in AZ. It was awfully hot there, I thought I would melt. I feel so bad for him, their apt sucks. They've been there since he started the school and they can't get anyone to fix things when something goes wrong. It's gotten worse since the new owners took over. So, my husband spent some time helping them fix some things, drains, lights, closet doors, etc. It was a good bonding experience for father and son. I went shopping with his wife, hahaha. I had my bonding experience. lol

I'm outta here

I'm leaving now to go to AZ for the weekend I'll post the rest of the bear pics when I get back on Monday. I finally spent some time on the new efx and it's ok, not as bad as what I first posted, but I will be staying here too. See you Monday!


Well, I just went over and activated my new account at efx2blogs on wordpress. I might be staying here, I don't know. I couldn't find a place to search for anyone, there is no main page, just like here, and oh damn, this sucks. I know, call me a crybaby, but I've never been so frustrated in my entire life. I think I'll have to wait to see who moves before I make a decision on this. The little bit that I looked around was enough to make me want to poke my eyes out.

Bears, beware of humans

Hi everyone! My mom gave me two photos today, mine are still at the shop, so I'll share these two. We went camping almost 10,000 feet up in the High sierras. I have been going there for over 20 years and have never seen a bear. Oh, I've always been aware that they exist up there, but have hiked and camped and never spotted one. Well let me tell you, this year was much different! Bears everywhere! It freaked us royally. It's a good thing we didn't tent camp this year, I would have gone home the first day if that was the case. The guy that owns the cabins and has owned them for almost 40 years, said with the drought and fire they had in the area the bears are starving. The first one we saw was by the lake while we were fishing, the first day. We noticed something moving across the lake, (not a huge lake) and thought maybe it was a large brown dog. But the way it moved we soon realized it was a bear. We couldn't believe it.I kept telling everyone that bears move fast and he was moving around the the shoreline towards us. Pretty soon he disappeared into the trees and I said "I'm outta here!" Quickly everyone followed me out towards our car. No sooner had we gotten in the car, there he was looking right at us. I was so glad we had taken the car to the lake instead of walking like we usually did. That bear we named Cinnamon because she was a beautiful cinnamon color. We saw her many times over the next week, sometimes walking across the patio by our sliding glass door. We would be sitting out there and watch her walk by while glancing at us. Other times we watched her walk up by the stream where my husband would clean his fish. The next bear we saw we named Cubby. This was a young brown bear with a white face. Cute as a button until he started running from behind a tree towards my husband as he was cleaning fish. I screamed at the top of my lungs, the bear looked at me and ran up the hill. He stood there for almost 30 min. looking at us and finally lay down and went to sleep. From that moment on, the bear watch started while he was cleaning the fish, hahaha. We never saw Cubby again after that day though. The third bear we saw was a huge black bear we named, umm Blackie. Original huh? This one came around 10pm each night. He would throw down our metal trash can, and pound on it until the top popped off. The feast would begin. We would wait for him to leave, clean it all up and about three hours later we would hear the trash can go down again. This time it would be Cinnamon. The next bear we called Scruffy. He just looked, well, scruffy. He was black and brown with some white on his chest. This was the lazy one. He would knock down the trash can and then lay down on his stomach and eat, hahaha. This is a picture of Scruffy. I have more pictures of the bears being developed. I should be getting them on Friday so I'll do another post. The last night before we left, we decided to feed the beers. We had been taking all our trash to the nearby campground and putting it in their big metal dumpster, instead of our metal trash can outside our cabin, mainly because we got tired of cleaning up the mess three times a night. But, the last night, we cleaned out the fridge and boxes and threw everything we weren't bring back home with us, in the metal can. Hey, they're hungry, let them have a feast. This is what went into the can: meatloaf, large bag of marshmallows, soup, bread, corn on the cob, lunch meat, chips, steak bones with a lot of steak still attached, crackers, and more, but can't think right now of the rest. We were hoping they would share, but haha, nope. Scruffy came by first, stayed for 20 minutes and ate everything. He did this while laying on his belly and only looking up when he heard a noise. He would keep going back to the marshmallow bag hoping to find more, hahahaha This next pic is of my Mom and husband by the lake before the bear came. See how happy and calm they look? I wish I could have taken an after pic, hehe. I stole my husbands hat because I forgot mine and he had to put a bandanna over his ears and use his other hat. I called him my little homeboy. For all you faithful friends that found me here, this is for you.
