waiting for my laundry to finish...

so you get a wonderful update on the thoughts that run through my head...sweet...right?

I don't know if I've said it already...but I love looking at Saturn through a telescope. It's so little. I mean...I know it's not little, but it looks little in the telescope.

The clouds rolled in just as I was walking my kids up to the telescopes area. It made me so sad. I couldn't show them a single thing through them. Bummed me out. I love talking about all the stuff up in the sky. One of my favorite things to look at is Messier Object #37...or an open cluster in Auriga. It's so cool to show to the kids....because when you use a laser pointer to point to it in the sky...you don't really see any stars where it is. When you look in the telescope...there are tons of stars. The kids then have a wow moment, and I love it.

This picture does it absolutely no justice.

In other news...well there's no real other news to tell...

I mean I probably could come up with something...but eh...

have a wonderful night...

are you still reading this?

i'm sorta delirious...

it's almost my bedtime. Lame I know...it's only 11:30. Oh well.

I remembered I had a blog and I needed to update it...so here goes.

I went to san diego the the other day. I got to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time. Yippee!!

The next day, I headed to Joshua Tree to CLIMB! That was awesome.

I'm not very smart though. There were all these trees there...you know...at Joshua Tree National Park. I was wondering what kind they were. DRRR... could they be Joshua Trees???

The Colts won the Super Bowl. I'm pretty excited about that. I missed home a little on Sunday. I wish I could have been celebrating in the streets.

The weather here has been awesome! Can't complain any about that. Although, Indiana is covered in snow and I do enjoy me a good snow storm every once in a while...

How's life for you folks?

a few things...

*The Super Bowl is Sunday and the Colts are in it. That makes me super excited. I hope they win.

* There is a limitless supply of food here at Astrocamp. You will never be without a cookie. I need to stop eating so much...but I just can't help myself.

*My leg is messed up...and that makes me sad...I can't run because it hurts.

*I love the stars and I am willing to tell you a story anyday about the constellations in the sky. It makes me happy. You can see the stars here. I like that. It's like I have my own personal planetarium and it's the sky.

*My view on boys and relationships is way screwed up.

*I miss my Indiana peeps.

*I got married on facebook to Matt Rasure. It's great.

*I feel bad that I don't update this blog very much...but I don't have a lot of time.

*liquid nitrogen is fun to play with.

*and it's fun to blow up hydrogen balloons.

*are you guys still reading this?

*There's a static cling sticker of St. Therese in the middle of our t.v.

*Last night...Taylor (a guy that works here) scared the poo out of me. I mean really. I screamed so loud and dropped to the ground. for serious.

*I like climbing.

*I lose my keys...and my radio...a lot. I mean a lot!

*There's a kid here named Bojazi...could your name get much cooler?
