Happy Leap Day!

How appropriate that Leap Day is also the Lord’s Day this year!

On Friday we went on a field trip to Cathedral Caverns. We went with several other homeschooling families, and had lots of fun! I’ll have pictures on my web site eventually.

We spent that evening with our friends the Burkes. It was a nice, relaxing evening.

Saturday was also a rather relaxing day.

Oh, and THURSDAY… I should mention, since it’s quite an accomplishment (if I DO say so)… I cleaned off my desk!! BEFORE PICTURE … and … AFTER PICTURE!!

Missed a couple of important dates there!

I just noticed that I didn’t post on the 19th (which was my birthday!) or on the 21st (which was the birthday of one of my best friends). So I’m mentioning it now. 🙂

Very weird dream!

Ok, first of all, a disclaimer! I don’t listen to Eminem and I have only ever seen pictures of him at Worth1000.com!

I dreamed that Eminem was at some sort of convention something-or-other I was also attending. Wait, that was after the other part though. Ok, let me back up.

I was in a building. I was on some sort of hoverboard, being chased by a woman on another hoverboard with malevolent intent. I don’t remember what our rivalry was based on. She had a needle (rather more like a large sewing machine type needle than a hypodermic) that had something in it. I didn’t know what. After what seemed like a fairly lengthy chase, she trapped me in a dead-end corridor. I managed to get back past her, but she knocked me off my board. I grabbed the board and used it to fend her off. It was just longer than her arms, so she couldn’t get the needle into me. Then she tricked me into getting too close and shoved the needle through my shoe into my foot. I grabbed the needle and pulled it out and – as it was still dripping – poked HER with it. Turns out the stuff inside was a sort of ‘non-poison’ … it just made the victim terribly, terribly, insatiably thirsty. We both headed for the nearest drinking fountain. I got there first. But no matter how much I drank, I couldn’t stop being thirsty.

We gave up and left that building, which is when I found myself at the convention/school.

There was one pair of students (a boy and a girl, but not a couple) who had ordered a set of books/notebooks of some sort and were attempting to get other people into the program they’d signed up for. It looked very interesting and I intended to sign up. (There’s also a bit there about desperately looking for underwear, though I WAS dressed, that I think I’ll skip partially over 😉 ). — I was at someone else’s house and we were playing a game. I went into their kitchen to get a bowl of cereal, set the bowl down on the counter to check the cabinets to be sure none of my clothes were in there and then started back to the other room with my bowl… couldn’t figure out where my spoon had disappeared to… it was down in the cereal LOL!
— back to the convention/school. This is where Eminem comes in.

He was walking around shaking hands with people. My sons were there, and he shook their hands, and talked a bit with Nate. He shook my hand, too. When we got into our van to leave, he showed up there, too, and shook hands all around again, except this one elderly lady who was there who was about 80 – he hugged her. While he was sitting there on the front seat of the van, I said, “Have you ever been to Worth1000.com?” and he gave me a really funny look. I said, “They have some pictures of you on there… kinda.” He raised an eyebrow and I said, “Let me find one of my business cards and I’ll write down the URL for you; I know it’s kinda hard to remember.” (LOL) and searched the van frantically for one of my business cards (for some reason I wanted him to have my contact information). He pulled out one of HIS business cards, but I ignored that and kept searching. I finally found something that would work (an old piece of cardboard cereal-type box) and wrote the URL, plus my email address and name. He asked me about it and I said I was kind of hoping he’d leave me HIS business card. He didn’t. He showed where I’d left a little TOO much info on the cardboard (there was a credit card number on it). He DID, however, email me later.

Then I woke up.

Still VERY thirsty LOL!

I hate those dreams where I’m thirsty and I drink and drink but can’t get enough. They usually happen when my throat is dry in real life.

So, that’s my weird dream for today LOL.

Happy Birthday, Cheryl, wherever you are!

When I was 15/16, I had a friend named Cheryl Lamphere. I’m guessing her last name has changed by now. Anyway, today is her birthday. Hope she’s having a great one, wherever she is!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My dh got me a rose a couple days ago (before they got toooo expensive!) 🙂 I got him a card. Later today my brother and his family will be here – I’d better go to bed!!

Want to see something cute?

An acquaintance of mine breeds English bulldogs, and they are so adorable as puppies! Hancock English Bulldogs

More dreams LOL

1. I was driving down a country highway (2-lane) and I stopped my car on the side of the road. I was alone. When I looked across the street, there was a little lane that had three houses, one nice ranch-type house with a HUGE fenced yard, that belonged to Vicki, and way down the lane just before it came back out to the highway, were two more little houses that were both back in the greenery and not very visible. They seemed to be deserted.
I walked down the lane and when I was coming out the other side, I heard a car coming, and for some reason didn’t want to be seen so I moved quietly into the greenery as it passed. Then I heard someone sneaking up behind me, and turned and saw a man (whom I don’t know) who apparently did NOT have anything nice in mind. He wasn’t quite close enough to get hold of me, and I ran for my car. I got in and locked the doors, and slammed on the gas in reverse (because it was facing him), and got away.
The adrenaline woke me up.

2. I fell back asleep and was in the same place… a half mile or so back down the road was a house that Janne & family lived in. I didn’t make it to their house before I woke up again though.

There was another one, but I can’t remember it now. I waited too long to get around to typing them out.
