5 Question Friday!!

1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates?
- No. If they don't like it, they get a piece of bread with peanut butter.  They don't have to finish everything on their plates.  They usually do if they like what I make.

2. Do you give an allowance?
- They are almost 3 and 6, still pretty young for allowances.  Although I have thought about paying $1/week for good behavior and keeping her room clean.
3. Do you actually park your car in the garage?
- Apartment complex, I park under the carport.
4. What is one food you will NEVER cook?
- Mushrooms.  Won't eat them and certainly don't want to smell them.
5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the summer?
- First day of summer vacation, we are driving to California.  Planned: Family reunion/wedding, Giants game, amusement park (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom), and a trip to the Northern California coast.

2 day streak

I haven't posted in forever it seems.  And this certainly isn't the first time I've fallen off the "blogging wagon."  I know I've been busy, but not busy enough.  Some pretty cool events have taken place (ie weight loss, husband's Army graduation, our trek to Missouri and back), so I'm not sure why I haven't written.  Last post was from my phone, today I'm on the laptop and they have REALLY changed Blogger around.  I do like the new setup, it will just take some time to get used to it. 
I do know I definitely became discouraged when it seemed like no one was reading the blog.  Yes, call me a big baby.  Now there are page views, I see people really were reading my blog. 
Maybe I'll start thinking of more interesting stuff to write about.  I still have a problem blogging the everyday things.  I feel like it isn't exciting enough.  Or once in a while I can capture a real thought provoking moment for myself. 
I used to write everyday when I was in high school, and not just because I had to either.  I did it because I genuinely loved to write.  I still do, it just doesn't seem to come to me like it used to. 
So, here is day 2 of blogging, let's see how this current streak will pan out.  Gotta log out and run off to Weight Watchers anyway!

Calgon, take me away!

Yes, please, take me away to the Pacific Northwest. It's been so long since I've been back there. I miss the weather, the people, and the culture. I fell in love with the area at a young age Someday I hope to take my own girls back to visit the area.
One of my favorite things about the area is the totems. I loved the carvings in the totems, and the huge Thunderbirds.
Someday I will go back, I'd rather go sooner than later.
