a few areas of expertise

Li asked me the other day what I like to do for fun. Seems like he should have known the answer to that question BEFORE we got married, right? But I didn't even know how to answer it. Since then I have been trying to figure it out. I've tried painting....
Yes, I know it is just a white pot. But I have spent at least an hour putting at least 6 coats of white on this pot and one day real soon inspiration is going to hit me and then you'll see.

But today my friend's boss asked our husbands to help her move to a new house. It was only supposed to be for a few hours and she was going to pay them. I didn't want to be home alone so I tagged along. As the day wore on into the afternoon and early evening we realized it wasn't a quick project, and that they weren't going to be making very good money. But I realized that I didn't care! I just like to be with people that I like doing anything.

When we got home Li fell asleep and I surfed the internet for awhile. But I don't like to sit still, so I grabbed my ipod and my longboard and decided to go for a skate with Yael Naim.

This picture probably just looks like a road to you. It is. But I have tried many times to skate down this road and always failed. I'm a sissy-pants.

Today I made it and I actually threw my fist up in celebration when I got down. Only to turn around and see some lady in a car who was all annoyed that she had to go slow behind me. So much for my fans cheering me on in my moment of glory. Sorry lady.

oh yeah i forgot to tell you how to make bbq roast sandwiches---its easy-just put a roast in a crock pot with a whole bottle of bbq sauce for 8 hours, then pull out the roast and drain all the sauce. then shred the roast, and put it back in the crock pot. add another bottle of bbq sauce and let it sit for another hour or so to let the meat marinate in the sauce. and then put it in hamburger buns!! its SOO good. and easy! i like to make seasoned potatoes with it too. wow i feel like an old lady; getting excited over what i make for dinner!
