I got a sunburn more than a week ago that was so bad that it blistered... Then it got a little infected.  Then one of the nurses at work told me to put an antibiotic on it.  So I did.  And now it is half the size that it was.  And because it is healing... I want to scratch.  Badly.  But I won't, mostly because there is a gooey layer of Bacitracin oinment on in and I don't want to get it on my fingers.  Next time I get a sunburn this bad, which knowing me, it won't take long, I will take pictures.  Because really, someone should document what the sun does to a basically albino person.

I heart Fareway part 1

I know.  My friend makes fun of me because of how much I love Fareway.  What made me think of it today was when you go to the meat counter they wrap everything up in the white butcher paper, even the cheeses.  I have more reasons to love Fareway... but thats all I can think of now... Hence the "part 1" in the title.

My house

I love decorating my house and making cool things.  I have been reading A LOT of blogs recently that are devoted to house projects and the like.
I can't wait to start sharing with you!
This past week I have been working on the back yard and making it look nice.  It has basically been taken over by weeds... more specifically creeping charlie.  There is also a pile of dirt that has been there for like two years.  We are working on moving it.
Also we have a 3 season porch that is really nice, but the spiders tend to take it over in the summer.  I have sprayed really good, and I am going to spray again after we pressure wash the entire thing.
I wish I would have remembered to take before pictures... but you can pretty much imagine a weed filled yard.
Today I got all the brush and leaves picked up and put it bags... and the lawn mowed. 
All we have left is to finish with the dirt pile and spray for weeds.
I can't wait. 
I was looking at the pottery barn outdoors catalog today and got tons of ideas for decorating the porch and lighting ideas for outside.
Also the lilac bushes are getting ready to bloom and I can't wait.  I LOVE lilac.
More pictures to come of the finished product:)

I love spring.  Seriously.
I also love reading other peoples blogs, aka, being nosy. 
Google reader keeps up with all of the blogs I read, and lately they have all been saying "sorry I haven't posted" or something to that effect. 
It is because it is so amazing outside that no one wants to mess with the computer.  Just a theory, but I am pretty sure its true.
I have bee working in the backyard the last week or so making it look amazing.  I bought a fire pit and got rid of all the weeds and trimmed back a tree and it looks 10 times better.  I wish that I would  have taken pictures... but completely forgot. I will take some of the finished product though.  My dad built a new grill so I convinced him he needed to give me his old one.  I am pretty sure that all I am going to be using the grill all summer long.  And the fire pit.  And the outdoors.  We also cleaned out the 3 season porch, and I sprayed it down for spiders, so hopefully it will be more usable this year.
Last week my two Lisa friends and I all went to the zoo.  It was three adults and 7 kids.  We only lost the same kid twice. 
This was 5 of the 7 kids that were with us... I don't know who the lady in the back right corner is.

Argh... this has decided to align center and won't let me fix it.  So no more for you...
I did just get 202 at scrabble... or the facebook version of it, Lexilous...
So happy
