Scrappin' Night

So the garden one- I made it one year to the day from when I took the pictures. Well, at least I wasn't OVER a year behind! Next on my agenda is to do Chris' birthday last year. Hopefully I'll get all these fall layouts finished up soon and then I'll be done with 2005.

The second one was of the inflated gas prices following Katrina. It's interesting how at the time we all thought that price ($3.41) was outrageous, but now it doesn't seem all that bad. We're currently around $2.75 or so, but a few weeks ago we were at $3.25.

I hope to get some more done Wednesday night. Thursday I probably won't get a lot done because I need to pack for my "exciting" weekend. Chris and I are acting as chaperones/advisors for an annual church youth group trip. It's actually a really fun event which is why I convinced Chris to come along. It's for all Lutheran youth in New England. When I was in high school there were probably about 500 people who attended. I think now they're up to 800-900 people. It's an interesting time. We take over a campground, they bring in a band, large and small group activities, and also time to hit the beach on Saturday. (Let's hope there's good weather!) They used to hold Sunday morning worship at the beach and then apparently they would all throw each other in the water afterwards. Unfortunately I never got to experience that because by the time I started going they had put a halt to that.

Wow..great pages! I love the one of the gas pump. I've been loving numbers lately so I really really like that one!

you don't have to like football. I don't find baseball exciting but you like the Red Sox and my dad ate, shit, and slept the bosox so you are right with me.

Well, I'm not a huge baseball fan either. That's Mel. I enjoy going to a game, but that's more for the experience. Otherwise I'm just not into sports.

Wait - you think $3.41 isn't bad?? I still think anything over $2.00 is too much to pay for a gallon of fas.

I remember when I was in college gas was at 99 cents.

My point was just that it's all relative. Not that I especially liked the current prices.
