Confession Time

Nope.  I have not finished a single room in my "Seasonal Cleaning" scheme.  Not that I have changed my mind about it being a good idea, I just found it a little overwhelming of an idea to do on my own.  Plus I have been keeping myself sooo busy that I just haven't had the time.  I have luckily over the last few days found the time to at least make my apartment liveable, which is at least the first step.  So I will be returning to the deep cleaning idea around um... Winter.  That way Caleb will be home to help me.

I went to six flags yesterday with some friends to celebrate a birthday.  My head and neck are still throbbing from all the insane rides I did.   I was so brave (crazy) and excited (nervous and anxious) to jump right on these rides (nearly walked right to the exit instead- actually did on 2) and afterward felt exhilarated (sore) and energetic (really, really tired).  Seriously, I had a great time and was really impressed with my list of thrill rides.  
Here are just a few of the many that I braved...

The Viper
Deja Vu
Goliath

Tweak Update:  Caleb and Ashton are in Carbondale, IL (our hometown).  They played a great show last night and it went really well.  They get to hang out with family for a few days before they have to leave to head further east.  I knew this part of his tour would be the hardest for me, because not only do I miss him, but I am also feeling left out of being in Carbondale and seeing our family.

Less than two weeks until I get to see him! YAY!

Claire, it looks like you had a good time at Six Flags. I was bummed I couldn't go, but at the same time, I do get MAJOR motion sickness, so six flags is probably the last place I'd want to be. Ha! You're brave for doing those rides. That was a great birthday present from Jon to Kirsten!

I'm impressed. I am to terrified to even go to Magic Mountain b/c I know I wouldn't be able to drag myself on a single ride and if I did I would probably regret it. I get motion sickness like Sarah so there is that, but mostly I am just too scared. But you are really brave...
