jammin out

O.K. so while we were out in the desert some of the guys were talking rock climbing. Not on a wall but out on the big rocks. I told them that I would be back out there in June and asked them if they would take me rock climbing. The guys said they would. Rusty looked at me and said "no".

So a little while later I asked him again. Once again his answer was no. I finally said " Why is it o.k. for you to go and do dangerous things?" He said that was what the marine corp paid him to do. Well that is a double standard! I will keep working on this subject after all I do have a few weeks.

I think I am going to blow the speakers on the computer because I am sitting here jamming out to my play list. Oh well.

Amber has not gotten any calls on the water slide. That is o.k. we are going to keep passing out flyers. Maybe once we get closer to summer people will be more interested. I just can't believe how hard it is for these kids to raise money. Does anyone have any other ideas for her?

Last night one of our friends called to talk Rusty. It seems that he will be getting promoted on June 1, and he asked Rusty to pin on his new rank. Rusty was honored that one of his "boys" would think to ask him.

I am going to go to the store and get Amber her photo albums. Then I am going to come home and get busy on the desk that I have been trying to finish for a year. I only have one drawer left to sand and then I need to seal it. Next week our friend Kevin will be here so he will be able to help me move the desk into the house, and get everything set up.

Well nothing is getting done while I am sitting here. So I better go get my ass in gear, and yes I am dressed.

They don't want us in danger because THEY COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT US! ! ! !
My hubby says if I die.....he will never take another pill which would of course end his life in about 3 months.

I'm really enjoying that picture!  ;-)  Nice view!  I can see you scaling the rocks.  It's true, the men can't live without us.  That's why they are so unwilling to let us do fun stuff!

What a spectacular photo, but rock climbing like that would scare me to death.  I am sure Rusty is thinking of your bad back when he said no to you climbing.  Sometimes a bad back really spoils a person's fun.  Gerry

That picture makes me dizzy!  I could never rock climb, but best wishes to you!  Hope you get to go, if you want to so badly.
