Juggling Jello Eggs

That's what it seems like lately. Last week my God in the Midst of Frenzy post was just the middle of it. I thought it would only be the first couple of weeks of October. . . plus one more . . . here I am in "yet another" week.

I was going to continue on this thought . . . but I decided that I don't want you to feel exhausted after reading some ad nauseum list (as if you don't probably have one of your own). Therefore, I will share something funny that I pulled out of my files.

Enjoy! :D

Loved this post - I lived in Colorado from 13-25, so most of my growing up years. And like you I've been to Casa Bonita more times than I'd like to admit - but the diver gets you every time, and the price is right, if the food isnt much better than Taco Bell! My husband told me when I first met him that he'd climbed one of the "fourteeners" - glad he got that out of his system before he met me! (He's from Grand Junction and grew up in Boulder)

Bev, it's kind of fun to take my kids to a place I loved growing up! And we all know that you don't go for the food. :D So you're not planning to come hike a fourteener anytime soon? LOL!!

Carrie, come on out! Would be fun to meet IRL! :D
