Can you kill germs with kindness?

Today marks my 101st post! Congratulations to me! haha and thank you to everyone that sits and reads through everything and nothing that I have to say, you are very much appreciated! The last couple of days have just been getting back to the grindstone. J' is working hard and is feeling good about everything he is doing, that's always good & encouraging. I do wish he would take an "re-energizer break" sometimes, but he just wants to go go go and not break his motivation or concentration...understandable. I woke up the other morning not feeling so hot, so I took it easy. The next day (yesterday) I felt even worse, so I didn't really get anything done...other than a lot of coughing, wheezing and spitting (sorry it's gross but it happens). I don't know where it came from, but I am going to blame it on being in Fresno for three days... germies, germies, germies ...ick! I did however tune my sweet Claramae and boy am I glad that I finally went out and bought a cheap lil tuner. I thought for the past year that my guitar was broken, it just turns out my ears are! Playing a guitar or practicing & learning on a tuned guitar has totally changed all motivation and excitement for learning. I am totally stoked now and am more than ready to get 'er done. I can sit and play a little longer too now, it's not as hard on my fingers for some reason...this whole tuning thing has changed my life. I'm so freakin' stoked!! So far this morning, I feel a bit better than yesterday I think this cough is finally starting to break up, even more gross than yesterday but I'd rather have it do this and go away than stay for months and months. I also "tortured" Savannah by cutting her nails, filing them, then brushing her teeth. I swear if anyone could hear her screaming from our camp they would probably think we are trying to clip her whole foot off. The problems with cutting her nails myself are 1- She hates anybody touching her feet. 2- She gets scared when the clippers push down on her nail, I think it's the pressure and I'm not even close to her quick. 3- With her being scared of the clippers before I even push down, she screams and then she bites me. It's a huge ordeal to cut her nails, then I have to file them down with an acrylic file because we don't have  a dremmel. Usually I can do it myself, but this morning after 4 bites/really hard nips (haha, sorry dirty mind) I had to have J' come wrap her in a towel and hold her, she's so much better when daddy gets involved....daddy's little girl! I do have to thank Miss Cherry though, she taught me an easier way to clip the nail, so that part only takes me about 5 minutes now instead of Thank you Miss Cherry! Super exciting morning going on over here! We are still learning about this new iceless cooler we bought. Every day we talk about a different (refrigeration) situation so we will have to see how it does over the next few days with the solar and the clouds and everything else. Until then or until something else fantastic comes up, I will catch ya on the flip side yo!

Time to find Savannah:

    For your other half - I clicked the '95ers click here link:

    1995 Astro Safari Information

    Owners of 1995 vans will want to check the suspension componants of their vans before ordering. Some '95 models still retain the composite leaf springs and clam shell style hangers. If your van has the composite springs then lift kits should be ordered the same as for '95 and older vans. If your van has the steel leaf springs then you can order kits for the '95 and newer vans.

    1995 vans may also retain the longer 41" torsion bars instead of the newer 36" type. See our torsion bar page for more information.

    The steering shafts on the 1995 models must always be examined for sufficiant overlap on kits that include sub-frame spacers. It may be necessary to order our longer shaft. See steering page.

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..
