So so happy....

Yesterday I finally got my splinter out! Yeah, I know that sounds like I'm a total weiner but I don't even care. That was seriously the meaniest splinter/chunk of log ever!! Back last Sunday when I was helping Jerry do some tree trimming work, I grabbed a limb & somehow shoved a massive chunk of tree into my leg - DEEP! I dug & dug & dug on it & couldn't ever get it out & it got really infected & gross looking. Well then Friday I had a doctor's appointment set up (yea - totally weiner-ish) but then didn't even get seen (a whole nother gripe there!) so I was really determined to get it out myself just because I was on not going back to the doctor's office. This is what finally came out...... (can't you see what a chunk of tree that is??) And I may still have a crater of a hole left in my knee but BOY does it feel better!



Besides that, Jim's now talking like he's going to get himself a place of his own. With the way Jerry's butt-head has been acting lately, I'm more than happy for them to just be roommates together. I don't think I've got them quite convinced of that yet but I can work on it. :)

And here's my new hair! (even though it's a bad pic since it wasn't really fixed & I was all sweaty from the nature walk) I wanted to try something new, so I found something I liked in a magazine & went with it. It's not quite like the pic was but I do like it & really like the bangs.



Today we took a little trip down to Roaring River. We did the nature walk (or let's just say PART of the nature walk) & then went wading down in the creek. We really had a good time. Between Jim goofing off & Dylan's scaredy squeals, we were all laughing so hard we were crying. Here's some of my favorite pics from the day.

Dorky Jerry...

Sicko Jim...

Oh but then get this... somebody ripped off a plastic window corner thingy off my car while we were there. Don't ask me why - I can't imagine anyone stealing this because they needed one for their Rendevzous. I'm just guessing it was someone just being evil & stupid. Now... to find where I order one of those and it better not cost much!

Hopefully this week goes by quickly. We've now got 12 days left in this apartment so I need to get lots of packing done!
