the life of a happy green girl...
Sometimes it is better to begin the journey, to get under way, then it is to sit back and wait until such time that you're convinced that all conditions are perfect and that there'll be no surprises along the route. John Engler

(the green girl just registered for an adult spelling bee.

i've always wanted to do a spelling bee but i never did one when i was a kid because i was too intimidated. unfortunately, my spelling skills seem to have really gone downhill as i've gotten older.

if i win, i'll get $500 and $500 will go to the charity of my choice. i picked operation jump start.)
(one of my 100 things for 2010 is:

[018] put together my emergency evacuation plan

this is something i've been wanting to do for years but for one reason or another, i never got around to it until now. instead of buying pre-packed bags, i decided i would build them myself. to start off, i purchased two 70 liter internal frame backpacks for me and kerry.

2nd-Jul-2009 12:37 am - (facebook makes me nervous...)
(i never thought i'd get into facebook but i've grown pretty fond of it. with one exception.

i don't like how i'm always one degree away from someone i'd rather have nothing to do with ever again in my life. [does that sentence even make sense?]

like i'll want to comment on one of my friend's statuses and then i'll see an 'enemy' and i'll freeze and stare at their tiny avatar and then i can't leave a comment anymore.)
