    Wait a minute, are you guys saying there are people out there that don't call it a float trip? what the heck else would you call it? you are camping and then you float on the river ALL DAY! You can't call it anything else can you? Come on. Seriously, another name for a float trip? no way. not buying. It's a float trip. ooohhhh let's take a phenster float trip when we all get skinny!! Then we can run around flipping all the other skinnier *****es canoes! wooohooo! we'll show them who owns the river!

    I am always making hairbows for my daughter and her friend next door. I think someone else here mentioned hairbows as well!
    I love working puzzles. its so relaxing! My favorite ones are the photo mosaic...where the little pictures make one big picture.
    I like to scrapbook, but I have been slacking big time on it!
    I also love going camping and hiking, but those are hard to do with a 3 year old in tow!

    =OMG will you be my best friend? I love ghosts and hauntings and things like that. I have some crazy arse stories I could tell but another day... =) Anyway, Since I am a mother of two, I don't have a lot of spare time but love to read and also love to hang out with my b/f doing nothing but snuggling. Not much time for that anymore but do as often as I can. I also like to ride motorcycles, on and off road, 4-wheelers, boating, used to ski but now i'm too fat to get out of the water ha ha! And camping and canoe trips. MY FAV!! I love summer, water, jet skis... i'm totally an outdoor person but don't do much of it anymore because of my size. I'm afraid of what people think when they see me coming down the beach.... I know I shouldn't be but I am. !
    Yes! Thanks everyone for sharing!! Its nice to know more about you all!

    I am an active EVP self claimed investigator... I become interested in EVP after by brother passed away. Since then I have heard many different good recordings. My grandma and aunt haven't came through yet. Being Christian my mother always says I am inviting in the devil, but I look at it differently. Anyway, cool hobby I don't think I would want to see a ghost face to face because I would probably cry unless it was someone I loved. Anyway, that is not really a big hobby of mine though...
    I like to scrapbook....I am a paper collecting queen
    Of course since I like to scrapbook, I love photography
    And I love theme parks I am an adrenaline JUNKIE!!!!!!

    I don't have any spare time at all. No matter what I'm I always end up having to take my three kids, so when I say my kids are my life, I mean it. To get spare time I have to go home to Dallas and that only happen once a year. So when I get my only spare day a year I shop and when I'm finish shopping, I hang out with my bestfriend and get real drunk to make up for the rest of the year.

    Let's see...

    I like to play computer and video games, especially with my hubby. I like to scrapbook. It is one of my new found loves. It is a great way to share your pictures and be creative in the process. I like to make doggy stuff. I sew my own collars for my two beagles and I can make dog toys, dog blankets, dog beds, and more. I love to pamper them. They are my babies. I like to sew other things too. I never used to, but it turns out that it is fun for me. I am trying to get up the nerve to do more difficult things. I like to do to dinner and movies with friends. My hubby and I have a great time laughing and joking when we do that. I also like to ride quads with my hubby and sometimes off road in the truck. Bowling is a lot of fun too and it is great exercise. Spending time with my hubby is very important to me because I really only get 3-4 days a week with him thanks to the long job hours.

    Things I used to do and can't wait to do again when this weight is gone include tubing and water skiing, swimming, playing basketball, and going to amusement parks and actually being able to get on the rides.

    Things I am hoping to do soon are camping and hiking.

    Lastly, things I want to try when I reach my goal include going to clubs, being more social in general, riding my bike, going on vacation or trips and not being so incredibly lazy, shopping for clothes, doing "more" with my hubby, and being more active in general.
    Keep on Keepin' on!

    Don't realtors HAVE to disclose if they have knowledge of someone passing in a house? I'm not sure.
    But we bought this home For Sale By Owner. And since the death didn't happen while we lived if, if we go to sale ... I don't think I have to mention it.

    Unlike you - I would NOT have wanted it. It took a toll on me, but it's all good now.

    That is such an awesome goal to have and you are quickly working your way to it! You are doing an awesome job so far! Keep up the good work. Maybe you should buy the suit you want to wear and hang it in the bathroom for that extra motivation in the morning!! That's where my avatar comes in! Happens to be my desktop background and my screensaver on my phone! I'm gonna wear that dress someday.=)

    How do you make hairbows? My daughter has alot of hair and she loves hairbows, but most of the time i can't find the kind/color she needs. I never thought of making them before, i guess i am kind of slow in the arts and crafts dept.


    In the last year or so, we have started camping regularly. I really enjoy the kids, the quiet of everything and the stars in the sky that I cannot see when I am in the city.

    I would love to go to the beach. I love the sand in between my toes and I love the water, but i hate my body. I won't buy a swimming suit, so i always find myself sitting on the beach instead of swimming....i'd much rather be in the water. So that is one of my long term goals, the beach next summer and swimming in the salty water with a kick butt swimming suit on...

    Well, I've never seen or experienced anything paranormal, but I absolutely love watching Ghost Hunters. I TiVo it every Wednesday.
    In my spare time (what little bit I have) I like to shop, go dancing at the club with my friends, play Rock Band on the XBox and spend as much time with my husband as possible since he works days and I work nights.

I confined what was going on to my boss at the time -he's also my dear friend and I told him, I was going to seek professional help - I thought it was some post - partum trauma or something. He told me I was the saniest person he knew, just give it some time. It got so bad, I stopped even telling him.
    One day we had my aunt visiting for a week or so, the 1st morning she woke to tell me and the other guests we had "Did you know you have a ghost?" I was EXCITED
    I said "OHMYGOD - YES! " She said well at first I thought ............." then we started finishing each others sentences about what happened, because I KNEW it was what I had experienced ...
    Other family members just sat in aw of our convo ...
    And then I let it go.
    but in time, I non-chalantly asked my neighbors if by chance they knew any died IN my house and 2 different people told me "Oh yeah, thought you knew ....... " so I stopped questioning myself and started to just ... I don't know if this is the right word but "accept" it more. Quite honestly it was a peace of mind. (vs. thinking I was losing my mind)

    Now - it seems to be 'known" and all good.

    we should probably start a new thread about this since this is not what the subject of this one is but I ssssoooo wished i had gotten a haunted house when I purchased.

    OHhh paranormal stuff sounds like fun. I have a lot of ghost stories too.

    I love to be outside. I grew up in the country therefore I like to hunt and fish. We love to camp, and last year we went to sequioa and kings canyon. It is one of the best national parks i have ever been to (yellowstone is really nice too) . I also love wine. I love to go wine tasting and if it wasnt for my 3 year old and 6 month old I would go a lot more.

    My biggest hobbie is off roading.

    I have a dirt bike and a Jeep and I off road. If any of you get the outdoor channel. I've been featured a few times on a television show on Monday nights. I don't want to say the name of the show as I don't it to come up in search engines, but the initials are OTR.

    I also volunteer rebuilding trails in the San Bernardino National Forest at least once a month.

    I'm also a big wine buff, so go to a lot of tastings and travel to try wines.

    Let's see, oh yes, I also love blues music, particularly acoustic blues (think memphis minnie not stevie ray vaughan) and I have several good friends that are musicians so I travel to see them play a lot!

I confined what was going on to my boss at the time -he's also my dear friend and I told him, I was going to seek professional help - I thought it was some post - partum trauma or something. He told me I was the saniest person he knew, just give it some time. It got so bad, I stopped even telling him.
    One day we had my aunt visiting for a week or so, the 1st morning she woke to tell me and the other guests we had "Did you know you have a ghost?" I was EXCITED
    I said "OHMYGOD - YES! " She said well at first I thought ............." then we started finishing each others sentences about what happened, because I KNEW it was what I had experienced ...
    Other family members just sat in aw of our convo ...
    And then I let it go.
    but in time, I non-chalantly asked my neighbors if by chance they knew any died IN my house and 2 different people told me "Oh yeah, thought you knew ....... " so I stopped questioning myself and started to just ... I don't know if this is the right word but "accept" it more. Quite honestly it was a peace of mind. (vs. thinking I was losing my mind)

    Now - it seems to be 'known" and all good.

    OMG will you be my best friend? I love ghosts and hauntings and things like that. I have some crazy arse stories I could tell but another day... =) Anyway, Since I am a mother of two, I don't have a lot of spare time but love to read and also love to hang out with my b/f doing nothing but snuggling. Not much time for that anymore but do as often as I can. I also like to ride motorcycles, on and off road, 4-wheelers, boating, used to ski but now i'm too fat to get out of the water ha ha! And camping and canoe trips. MY FAV!! I love summer, water, jet skis... i'm totally an outdoor person but don't do much of it anymore because of my size. I'm afraid of what people think when they see me coming down the beach.... I know I shouldn't be but I am.
    Get thin and God Bless! Gina
