This last weekend was our Idyllwild trip and we had a great time. We were back to basics this year. It has been a few years since we auctually camped since we have been blessed to have our dear friends Sarah and Josh living in Idyllwild and were able to stay at their house. We started off by heading to our usual place to camp the state park but there was a sign saying no camp fires and we were so not going to last the weekend with out cooking over an open flame. So we headed down to the county park and lucky for us they were allowing camp fires. We got camp set up very quickly and settled in. We spent the evening just enjoying each others company, reading and watching an Indiana Jones movie.

It ain't over til Manny says it's over.
Of course their visit was made possible by johnkrasinski.net, who have now sent about 750 people to our blog this week.

Seriously, check out our site meter at the bottom of the blog. When we posted those pics from the Kings game the other night, apparently the only other blog to have similar pics was Perez Hilton. Some celebrity blogs found our pics and linked to them, so now we've been getting all kinds of people checking us out. We usually average 16 hits a day. The past 2 days we've had over 500....most from the johnkrasinski.net site. I'm starting to see why there are so many paparazzi out there. I had no idea so many people out there are obsessed with celebrity pics. Maybe this could be a new career option for me. I like taking pictures. How hard could it be to learn how to stalk people?

Our longest wait was about 25 minutes. I have never been up there when the place is decorated for Halloween, it was pretty cool. Our new favorite ride is Tatsu, so freaking awesome. Horray for a fun day.
Now to get some sleep for the upcoming work week.

I have found myself looking at this quote quite often this week. It is really important for me to remember that I have done what I could and not to continously worry about what is in the past. That I need to move forward with inner strength. I will have only failed if I never tried.
"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with old nonsense" -Ralph Waldo Emerson

#1 -- I was driving in Highland Park to get on the freeway. The car that was a bit in front of me hit the brakes and then took off fast. The area is dark so it was hard to see what was going on, but then I saw some guy in the middle of the street throw something at the car. As I drove by he was struggling to pull something out of the backpack he was holding. I sped up at that point though not fast enough because as I passed, something hit my car. I kept going and saw the guy swing his backpack to hit the car behind me. Good times.
#2 -- I keep going and get off the 5 at Imperial Hwy. I had to stop at a light in Norwalk (right before the bridge for the transportation center for those who know the area). As I'm waiting at the light a 50-ish black guy comes out of the transportation center driveway and starts crossing the street in front of me. When he got in front of my car he stopped and stared at me. I didn't make eye contact, but noticed that his eyes were all over the place. He started to walk up to my window so I figured he was going to ask for money. Wrong. He decided instead to jump up on the hood of my car. What the.....? Then he squatted down and looked in through the window (eyes still all over the place). He then jumped off and kept walking across the street.
And here I thought I left all the crazies back at work.
