Day 242

I had to buy a new printer because I had a paper jam in my old printer and it stopped working. Not a fun thing to buy but I am excited that this one is wireless. Makes it much easier to print!

Day 229

It's Wednesday which means...comic book day. That huge Galactus box contains a very large action figure that we had to bring back with us from San Diego Comic Con last year. Justin drags the box out of his room on Wednesdays to put under his comic books for 2 reasons: 1. It keeps the comic books from getting creases from the table. 2. He thinks it keeps cat hair from getting on the books. Silly boys :/

My Gronk book came today! If you don't know Gronk, you should. Katie Cook draws this weekly webcomic & uploads it to every Friday. Gronk is the cute little monster sitting in the sidecar in the picture above. This book is the first year of the webcomic. Check it out!

Day 217

T-minus 2 days until it's back to work. The fact that I went to school to laminate a huge pile of things on my last official day of summer should tell you that I'm getting just a wee bit anxious...
