I probably won't be blogging for a while since our home was just broken into, and they took our computer, along with many other things. I'm currently using a friend's computer, so it might be a while before I get one of my own again. Sorry guys! :(

no quote today.

(Picture of dad working on a house in June 1972)

Well, my dad is in town for a week so he can help us plumb and wire our garage apartment in Brinnon. We all went up to see Wendel and Ashley on Sunday and to watch some of the family videos. (Sorry- maybe I shouldn't mention that for people who don't have theirs yet. I really am trying to get them copied as quickly as I can). Anyway, Dad promised to cry through the whole thing (we only watched ~1/2 of the movies), but I didn't see one tear! I got jipped! The good news is that we had a really nice time with Wendel and Ashley. And then I woke up super early to get back to work Monday morning, and I forgot my purse!

Now I'm here in Portland slaving away at work while Ron and Dad are up in Brinnon enjoying the peace and quiet. I'm trying to get my stuff done so I can join them. But there's just so much to do. (I keep telling myself, "I am NOT a work-aholic, I am NOT....).

If I end up going to Brinnon, I'll take some pictures and post them.

I found it!

I didn't find the picture, but the negative happened to be in "the box", so I scanned it in! I think meag and I have been looking for this picture for quite a while now.

See if you see a similarity between me and meagan and Ron and JR...

Me and Meagan:

Ron and JR:

It's pretty funny how many "similar" pictures Ron and I have from our childhood. (I'll have to post them sometime). We must be soul mates! :)

And, Finally, some more fun Schultz family pictures to enjoy:
The ruffians that we are (AKA showing our true colors):

Wow! mom has some nice ... cantaloupe! :)

OH, what fun!

P.S. I do want to say that I did NOT pick which still shots would be put on the cover. The guy just assumed that all were fair game. I'm truly sorry if any are offensive. :(

So, the DVD's arrived in the mail, as I already excitedly told everyone over the phone. I haven't had a chance to watch them yet, but I did scan in the jacket pictures so every one can see. Isn't it awesome! Do you know what would be poetic? at our next family reunion (this coming summer, right?) we should get an air popper, pop a whole bunch of popcorn into some paper grocery bags (we might need two or three now with all the grandkids), pour butter and salt all over it, shake it up and eat it while we're watching these movies! or some condensed version, maybe.

I'm VERY excited to watch these. If anyone wants to come over and watch with, you're more than welcome!!! I promise to make copies and send them out as soon as humanly possible. and hopefully post some snippets on my blog!

some fun pics

I was working on a project in the sewing room when I heard Ron calling from the bedroom. I got to a good stopping place and walked in to find a very interesting scene.

Ironically, everyone stayed put long enough for me to tromp downstairs, find the camera, and come back to take a picture. Usually when the cats hear me clomping downstairs, they run after me, especially mine, because she loves to do this when I'm sitting at the computer:

While I'm at it, I'll show you a picture of the project I was working on, for Ronna's new baby. (Ronna, if you're reading this, sorry I spoiled the surprise!) Of course I still have to clean it up and remove the stabilizer, etc... but this is the gist.
