Working On It...

I know...I owe you vacation pictures! I'll bet my folks are checking their computers every 30 minutes to see if I've put any up yet. 'Cause, you know, Mom and Dad don't have anything better to do than sit around and check my blog every half hour. And blow their noses since they ALWAYS get a cold after spending time with my children.

Seriously. I'm working on it. Brace yourself though. I'm not going to edit the pictures. I typically like to run just about everything through PhotoShop before I show you so that I can maybe trick you into thinking I'm a pretty good photographer. But this time I just have too many pictures! You're going to get the real deal this time.

I'll try to get my fun pictures of swimming, fishing and fireworks up sometime before Thanksgiving. Promise.

I'm still trying to get my feet under me after our trip. I flipped the page on my calendar, only to see that we're having about 35 people over for dinner TOMORROW. Needless to say, I've been running around partly cleaning, sometimes weeping, and mostly eating chocolate. It's just what I do when stressed, you probably know this already!

So forgive me for being a lame blogger lately. Yes, I realize that all I had to offer you yesterday was a link that brought you to an article about a guy who hooked a bunch of helium balloons to a chair, and floated his way from Oregon to the great state of Idaho. Come on. You gotta admit that it was pretty impressive!

Since I always procrastinate when I have something big going on (like a bunch of people I don't know coming for dinner), there's a decent chance that I'll spend the day tomorrow blogging about my vacation instead of getting ready for the party :)

And for all of you really loyal blog readers who have actually read your way through to the end of this post, I have a surprise for you. Since you're probably the same loyal bloggy friends who visited me and left sweet comments while I was away, I'm doing a (shhh!) giveaway!! Yes. Right now. Leave a comment on this post, and I'll draw a random winner on Friday. I'll send you a box of my favorite new find...the Debbie Myer Green Bags. Just my way of saying thanks for stopping by.

I was actually thinking of buying some of those after reading about them. It would be cool to win them instead!

I found your blog this morning and I'm hooked.

Thanks for sharing yourself w/those of us in cyberspace.

I'm on a quest to find if you've posted a story behind your name. Just call my curious.

Hey Daiquiri,
Hope you had a good trip. I'm in good 'ol Williston visiting my parents. You wouldn't believe all the changes. TONS of oil activity. There are waiting lists for housing and HELP WANTED signs everywhere. The housing crisis and job shortages are no where near here. Thanks for the giveaway.

Wow, 35 people...brave woman.

I could totally use those green bags, I'm always letting my produce go bad in the fridge! Lately I haven't even bothered buying it anymore!

I really enjoy your blog...thanks for all the info on the bags, they sound really great!

Glad you had an enjoyable trip. Pictures posted so far are beautiful.

Prior experience says it takes as long to recover from a vacation as it does to pack up and take it.

Don't stress. We'll still be here. Checking every 30 minutes. tee-hee

The bags seem like a great idea. You always come up with great ideas!
