The Flaming Shrew

Is anyone else's PMS getting worse with age? Just wondering. Because this afternoon I literally thought the top of my head was going to fly off for no apparent reason. Well, of course there was a reson--I'm not THAT irrational. Or so I think.

But then again, "Everybody thinks they have good taste and a sense of humor but they couldn't possibly all have good taste." Name that movie.

My point here is that I don't seem irrational to myself, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, there was a reason for my irrationality, but I can no longer remember what it is. Was.

So if my PMS is getting worse with age, at least I can't remember it in any great detail. Silver linings.

On a completely different subject, here are a few pictures of a fall hike I took with friends last Friday. It looks mysteriously like the fall hike I took a few weeks ago, even though it's a completely different part of the valley. Crazy.

The view from the bottom of the trail. We were at a state park near our house.

Views on the way up.

Probably because I didn't grow up around Aspen trees, I'm so enthralled by them. Those long, long trunks and yellow leaves against the bright blue sky. I still miss the reds of the maple trees though...

Twila and Gillian following me and Vicky back down the trail.

View of the lake on the way back down.

Ahhh, I feel serene just looking at these pictures...until I realize how freaking long it takes to upload them and how cumbersome the process is. So Blogger, you're on notice: You upload function sucks.

We now interrupt this crazed post and return you to your regularly scheduled evening.....

Love this post and the lovely photos although I do agree with you- without the reds and oranges it does seem as though something is missing!

Oh! And about your DVR post.. can you imagine that you ever lived without it? Oh my! We love ours! We have one upstairs to record the non-kid shows but I am starting to take over the downstairs one a little too. My kids seem to watch more "On Demand" stuff (free) than they do recorded stuff. Works for me!

Have your tried the show parenthood? Check it out on Hulu. I love it.

It's just been an 'off' week for everyone, I think. I've been a little crazed myself, and not sure why. Hang in there!

Yes, yes, and yes. Sometimes I think the kids/husband are looking at me like, "oh no, she's going to lose it again, run for safety!"
