When I proposed the idea to M that we create a blog, it took her a little while to get sold on the idea. Now, she posts more than I do. She loves it. I was told by other bloggers that I would run out of stuff to say and that I wouldn't be able to update all that often. What I have come to find is that I have plenty to say, but I've been too lazy to update. Anyways, in the same vein as M, here are some random comments about things.

1. Vacation. As M mentioned, our trip to Idaho/Utah was fun. But, I do not understand the mentality of Idaho and Utah drivers. How can they drive so bad? Now I'm not saying that Oregonians are the world's greatest drivers. In fact most Oregonians are clueless to what is going on around them and the damn hippies will not speed. They seem to be in no hurry to get anywhere. However, most Oregonians are courteous on the road. In Idaho and Utah, they drive recklessly, pull stupid maneuvers, and refuse to let anyone in. They seem to want to fight with everyone on the road. Lame.

On a different note, I cannot tell you how proud I am of the boy for hanging on to the back of the quad while we climbed up mountains in Idaho, all the while with a huge smile on his face. The kid is a thrill seeker and it warms my heart.

2. TV. I like TV. Probably the best new show this season is Chuck. If you're not watching Chuck, you suck. 'Nuff said.

3. Cookies. I've begun to realize that as I get older, I tend to pay for convenience. I would have never have thought a few years ago that I would buy (or actually have Michelle buy) a tub of pre-made cookie dough because it is expensive and unnecessary. However, that is the point I have reached. I gotta tell ya that I am addicted to Nestle Toll House cookies coming right out of the tub and into the oven. They are so good. I believe I ate 6 the other night.

4. Medication. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago because I had an annoying cough that wouldn't go away. There are few things that I hate more than the sound of coughing, no matter who it is coming from. I was put on a steroid called Prednisone to open up my chest. I was warned that it may make me hyper and I have seen this effect on my son when he's been on it for asthma. The stuff made me super wired, shaky and gave me an insatiable appetite. I could not believe how hungry I was all the time. I couldn't pass a convenience store without stopping to get something to eat. Ultimately, the drug worked to get rid of my cough, but since my stomach got stretched out, I still get pretty hungry.
