World's Had Been Colliding

Jesse Lacey from Brand New covering Trailer Trash, one of my favorite Modest Mouse songs.

If you couldn't tell, I am a bit slap happy about my upcoming vacation and am having trouble focusing on work today.

Today's Jam...

Monday, August 23, 2010


So I've been working in InDesign all day, and I went to import some text (which I thought I knew how to do...not true, apparently). Everything locked up, and I went to restart it, and it locked up on the restart, too...so I forced it to shut down. When I opened up my document, it hadn't autosaved or saved it's recovery file. So everything I did today is gone.
It was only about five hours worth of work. I guess it will be even more fun to do a second time!
I don't use emoticon's very often, but this is how I am currently feeling----> >:(

When Can I Quit?

Cam and my dad were on and ready to go riding before I even had my mule saddled yesterday. When I walked up with Maggie, I asked what they were talking about.
"Camri wants to know when she can quit school?"
I told her, "Well, you can stop when you are 18, but it will probably be more like 22."

When we were getting ready for bed last night, she wanted to know if she could leave school early. "You know, like after lunch or something?" I told her we would have to ask Mrs. Dintelman, but I didn't think that was allowed.

I think this might be a long year...

La De Da, La De Da...

Darlin' let loose and let your hair down
We're staying at home for a night on the town
So turn the music up, we'll dim the lights down
Let those old records keep spinnin' around
Replace all our worries with some romance
Tell me you love me, we'll shut up and dance...

First Day of KIndergarten

Today is Camri's first day of kindergarten. She was ready about 15 minutes before she needed to be because she was so excited. I walked her into her classroom, but didn't stay long after that... It was a little overwhelming.
I am anxious to go pick her up and hear all about her first day. I'm sure it is going great...but it is sad to think that she is going to have this whole set of people she knows that I don't. She is such a people person and makes friends so easily, I know she will be fine.
I can't believe that it is already time to start working on the OCTOBER issue of Mules and More. Even though it has been sooo hhhooottt, I'm not quite ready for summer to be over :(

Owensville Fair Parade

We watched the Owensville Fair parade last Thursday. Camri took pictures, hoping to see a mule. But there were just horses.
