could you keep it down out there?

I have a headache. Of monstrous strength.

I have had a headache since Sunday night. We went up to Rocky Mountain State Park, as you could see any time you checked my blog all week, and I was wondering if I had altitude sickness. Because I had a cup of coffee that morning, some coffee at IHOP (where Jonny took us all for pancakes), and then a humongous Coke for lunch. Bad. I have been drinking water like crazy since we arrived out here. Except for Sunday. And I paid the price.

So for the rest of the week, I have been drinking insane amounts of water to make up for the lapse in judgment. And I still have a headache. But I have been waking up several times each night to pee. So now I am wondering if I need to dust off my old bifocals that I haven't worn in for ever and start actually wearing them...

On a more cheerful note, my gorgeous fabric arrived for my chairs, but now poor Jonny has to try to find the staple-gun that is packed away in one of our storage units! So it may be a while before I can get that little project finished.

Jonathan and I watched Lars and the Real Girl last night and it is now one of my all-time favorite movies. It wasn't at all what I was expecting it to be. It's actually very sweet. I highly recommend it, if you haven't seen it already.

And lastly, I may be getting a bike! I know, right? But Jonathan is getting his old mountain bike fixed up and he bought a trailer off of craigslist to pull the kids around in. So now that just leaves me. And no way do I want to be stuck at home while my whole family is out riding around! This is the bike I like:

What do you think?

I'm jealous: I really want to see "Lars and the Real Girl!"

The bike is super cute. Are you gonna but a basket on it and streamers coming out of the ends of the handle bars? :)

A. I totally frickin' love "Lars and the Real Girl." It's so sweet and strange.

B. I don't even know how to ride a bike so you'll always be better than me!
