There's a reason I stuck the E=mc2 on my avatar over there. It's to make myself feel smarter. [Never mind. I changed my avatar.]

I take Topamax to prevent migraines and if you're unfamiliar with this drug, here's an excerpt from a list of its side effects:

"Memory loss, aphasia (weird words coming out in place of what you meant to say or write), word find problems (not being able to recall the names of people, things or concepts), and a general cognitive impairment that has earned this drug the nicknames 'Stupamax' and 'Dopamax.'"

I lowered my dosage several months ago in hopes of regaining some IQ points. It's sad to trade any points at all for pain relief but if you get migraines, you understand my dilemma. A happy forgetful head or a pounding, crashing, throbbing remembering head? Just don't be mad if I forget your birthday.

Or your name.



Here's a layout from Cambryn's May dance recital. She felt really grown up because she had to wear eye shadow, blush and lipstick.

Ding, ding! We have a winner!

Collin won the Junior Golf Club Championship today at our country club in the age 9-11 boys division.

There were nine boys in his division. They played six holes and Collin shot a 27. His good friend Andrew got second place with a 28.

I'll post pictures as soon as I get them from my friend Lisa. I forgot to take my camera (bad mom).

You know those people who will ride absolutely anything at the amusement parks?

I'm one of those.

A very short play based on real life.

Our home at about 10:00 a.m. this morning.

Cambryn: Mom, I'm hungry for a snack.
Leslie: Well, we have peaches, plums, grapes, or cantaloupe.
Cambryn: I don't want any of that.
Leslie: Raisins.
Cambryn: No, I don't want raisins, either. [Pause.] I want a snack that's not good for my teeth.

--The End--

Here's a layout of my kids with my parents. Grandparents... grandchildren... life is grand... GET IT? Can you believe I thought that title up all by myself?*

I'm on a roll here. I even freshened up the place to look more summery. Who knows, maybe someday I'll throw in a story or two.

Surprise. I'm trying to climb back onto the face of the earth. No big reason, just a busy life. Here's a layout.
