What I learned today

Barnett st. Bridge

It was a great day today. I learned a little bit about aviation, smokejumpers operation, and EMT but what makes me so excited was learning how to daisy knot tie. That was pretty cool..so simple yet such a great thing to know how to.

A good way to end my tired day

Such a great day! I learned a lot today from bear safety to using compass and GPS, to watching a video and  lesson learned, and to hiking up the birch hill carrying pulaski with 25lbs back pack. What a day! On top of that I rode my bike 5 miles to home. I'm tired and sore but had a great day. And a good way to end my day was using sauna soaking in hot tub.

Big Dog and the pinata


Kids were having fun taking turns whacking the pinata then all of the sudden this big dog showed up and took over. Look how high this big dog jumped. He only got a piece of the pinata though. That was funny! Kids love it!

5K Chena River Run 2018

Alan my 5 year old boy got to go with me today and did 5K Chena river run 2018. The last time I did this was in 2010. I Never thought I would be running it again...now with my son.

So he was doing great for about a mile then he started to whine, then he wanted to be carried. So I had to carry him for about a 1.5 miles to the finish line. So glad I have been working out.

I registered both of us online. I did that after the pickup date for bib and tshirt was done. However, we can pick up our bib and tshirt on the race day. When I went to pick up my bib, I was told the tshirt pick up is at the finish line. What the heck?! I was hoping to wear the tshirt while running.  By the time we got to finish line, only one size left - Adult  LARGE! So disappointed!

We took the bus ride from Fred Meyer to Woodriver elementary school where the starting line  was. And from Princess Lodge back to Fred Meyer. 

Friends and family

Not getting a goodnight sleep

I don't know why I haven't been getting enough goodnight sleep. I tried to be in bed early but I just end tossing and turning and I kept waking up. I also took some melatonin last night but that didn't help either. Hopefully tonight, I'll get a goodnight sleep.

My five year old son loves watching this new musical show Zombies on Disney channel that started in March 2018. Someday is his favorite song in that show he said.





My son in the sun with warm blanket

It was a nice sunny day but a bit cold. My son wants to play outside but didn't want to wear his coat. So, he used his warm blanket instead just to be in the sun.

Yawning not a lady thing?

I was told it's not a lady thing to yawn. Even if I cover my mouth, yawning is not a lady thing and that I should learn to control it. My response to it is, I don't care! I'll yawn any time I need to.

Xterminate the Ants

We reported an infestation of ants in our work area couple days ago. But few years ago, there was infestation n the same place where ants have wings and they've crawled and fallen off of the ceiling. Those ants got exterminated but now anothe family of ants again.


Since we can't xterminate them ourselves, this is what they did, a roach trap for ants, they've placed this everywhere.

What a huge cinnamon roll

A coworker gave this to me this morning. I can't believe how big and heavy this cinnamon rolls is, it is huge!
The thing is I wasn't able to eat it until after my physical exam which was done by 4pm. I was hungry and I've been thinking about this cinnamon roll throughout my exam. so when I got done, I gobble a big part of this huge cinnamon roll.
So yummy but not so good for my tummy but it did make me happy!
