Random Ramblings: Here I Go Again

Reliving: It sure seems like I have written parts of this blog before.

Eating: Junior Mints. My dad and his family are off in Canada so I am tending the dog and working alone. My dad and I usually share the movie-size boxes of Junior Mints while at work but since he is not here I get the whole box to myself. I am sure he would have wanted it that way.

Reading: A bunch of comics and tradepaperbacks that I got for my birthday. Two of those books were G.I. Joe related. How old am I?

Double Dipping: So I have decided to sell all my Queen CDs. Yes, the same ones that I said I wouldn't sell. I have decided to upgrade my Queen collection to the new remastered sets. The new CDs have better audio quality and they are also all double sets. I usually hate double-dipping but I think this will be worth it. That is until the 50th anniversary of Queen where I am sure they will release some new bonus stuff.
Soon this will be mine!

Preparing: Next week I will be at Girl's Camp again. I cannot believe that it has been over a year ago since I went last year. This time I will be staying the whole time and I have to admit that I am looking forward to it. Last Sunday after Church a few of the girls came up to me and said that they are going to make me a camp shirt this week. They said it was going to be awesome and part of me is excited to see what they will come up with and part of me is a little leery of what it might turn out to be. I am flattered that they want to make me a shirt (which is the reason why I didn't want to do one in the first place; I wanted them to do one for me) and I told them I am excited to see it. But I also reminded them that the reason I am going to Girl's Camp is because I wanted to spend time with them because I like them. Hopefully that will quell any embarrassing shirts they could make me. I already know that my nickname is going to be plastered on it.

Painting: The camp shirts are pretty cool. Logan liked them so much that he made some as well. I do think they turned out pretty cool.

 To make tie-dye shirts the easy way, just get a blank white shirt and crumple it.

 Then spray with paint.

And that is it!

Forgetting: I think I have forgotten how to drive. I have been without my car for almost a month. It is still being repaired by a friend of the family. It has taken a lot more time than he figured and it has been a bit aggravating but then I just have to remember how much money he is helping me save. I have not filled up my car too so that is saving me $50 at least! I borrowed my dad's car the other night and I think my depth perception is off. I cut off two cars by mistake and I think it is because I have not driven in nearly a month!

Pondering: I am thinking of purchasing tickets for the family to see The Music of Queen by the Utah Symphony next month. It is up at Park City and the concert is outdoors on the lawn. But the tickets are $30 bucks a piece. But I think Logan would have a good time. I did find a $10 off coupon and that helps. And I might be able to get Logan in for free! Hmmmm.....


  1. Cool tie-dye shirt!! I love Logan's expression in the photo!! You do great work!!

  2. Those outdoor concerts are so much fun, logan would definitely love it! Check out the symphony's website, sometimes they have deals, student discounts etc.

  3. Cool tie-dye idea! Outdoor concerts are awesome too! Nothing like live music in the open air!
