Yes- finally I get to posting a new post. Sorry... I got kicked in the ass with the flu- so I never made it into Portland for my classes. I felt so bad about that & just sick sick sick. But I'm much better now. Cameron had a good birthday on his birthday. The photo was taken the evening of his birthday.. he is now 11 years old.. wow. A pre-tween! Is this good or bad? He had is birthday party with the friends thing this past Saturday. We took 9 11 year olds swimming then they spent the night. I must be totally insane. I had to ask myself if having 9 farting boys is better than 9 screaming girls.. well I figure I can leave the room when they fart- I can't escape screaming so I figure it was a good deal with the boys. However- they eat A LOT and drank just about all I had- minus the alcohol- then I did rethink that at 4AM since they said at 10pm when Dan & I went down to get the sleeping arrangements organized (yeah right)- one of Cam's friends- Parker says- we're doing all night'er. Dan & I said okay.. and then said to eachother- I give them until 1AM the latest. NOPE- they were up ALL night. A few of the boys- including mine- admitted they did sleep a little bit. However- Parker & another boy Even stayed awake ALL NIGHT. However- that kept Dan up. And Dan was NOT happy. So the thought of maybe they shoudl drink- then again the parents woudl have had my ass. I WOUD never do that you all know that.. give me some credit!! I was doing the "cat napping " thing from about 4AM. I finally caved in at 7AM and got up. Dan wasn't happy AT ALL. At 5AM I said to him.."remember what it was like to be 11 again?? you just said last night-- wish I was that age again, so here is your chance to go play" He wasn't ammused at the moment.LOL The boys were being boys. Cameron had fun & the boys did as well. I figured the parents would ban these boys from coming over ever again. But- as I said - I had to remind myself what it was like to be 11.. and the moments of those so called all-night'ers then they are the childhood memories I remember most. I hope we have given Cameron that one memory that will last a lifetime. Dan at this point is still recovering.. I keep telling him.. just give it up- the sleep is gone. Cameron actually stayed up until his bedtime. Though he did take a bath & fell asleep in the tub. LOL He said my eyes were hurting- I told him.. it's okay sweetie- you are tired & it catches up with you. He insisted his eyes hurt.. but finally looked at me & said- "Sorry- I was tired".. ya think?? :o) Spring Break is next week & not too sure what he will do. I think I'll call my SIL in Portland & see if he wants to go see her for a few days. Just not to keen on her boyfriend. He does have fun with his Auntie Laura though. Gotta run now. Have a good Monday!!

Sorry been a while. But I have done nothing interesting. I mean you want hear me whine?? I can. I have been feeling under the weather. Just blah & icky. I mena I feel like I am fighting bug of some sort. Dan has a head cold.. and my little boy will be 11 tomorrow!! But that has nothing with me feeling like I have this bug. AND not a good time to have it. I have a class this Friday to teach.. well not really teach.. more of here it is go for it. I'll post a photo later of what the class is.

So I'm going to try & find time this week. though I have no idea when since I still have some paper to cut for my class. And I should be doing that as we speak...aaack!
