Blog around the world

I've got a fairly busy day. Right now I'm eating oatmeal and participating in...

and reading up on a few different blogs around the world. Cool, huh? You can join in on the fun by going here!

After this, I'm going to go to the post office to mail out a care package. I was going to mail it, but due to a last minute request that I had to fulfill last night, I am mailing it today. Seth told me a few weeks ago (after I had neglected to send a care package for a little while) that he was feeling "deprived." Nobody likes a deprived soldier, so I packed up up 2 boxes and off they went. I can't say what's in this one because he hasn't gotten it yet, and I don't want to ruin the surprise. When he was in Iraq and I first started sending him care packages, we agreed not to cheat by looking at what was listed on the customs forms. We have to open the box entirely to see what's in it. I always liked this idea, but it was very hard for me to do. I always had to remove the customs forms before opening the box and put it face down so I couldn't accidentally see what was listed. He sent me a few esrever (reverse) care packages...which is what we called the fun boxes he sent me with Iraqi stuff. It was fun. I wish he had outgoing mail where he's at now...I miss getting letters and a random box. :(

After the post office, I'm going to the gym where I'm participating in the Biggest Loser Contest. We get 4 personal training sessions and this is session #3. We're working our booty's and legs today. Last time I worked with this trainer, I could barely walk for like 5 days. I'm not joking either. It's going to be awesome.

I also have to go to Best Buy and look at cameras, and I think I'll go downtown to find a friend a birthday present. I have no idea what to get her but I'll find something good. I was going to bake an apple pie this weekend, but since it's going to be in the 80's, I don't feel like turning on the oven, so I'll scrap this idea and wait for a cooler day.

Have a great Saturday!
