Do all adolescent boys have burping contests? Our next-to-youngest was SO proud of the fact that he could say the entire alphabet through one burp. I'm not kidding. It was just gross and ridiculous; but he could do it. My 85-year-old friend Marge just laughs and says "Males are not as highly evolved as females." But what does she know? She raised 6 daughters. I would not have traded places with her for all the cheese in Wisconsin, all the wine in Napa, all the cattle in Texas or all the oldies in Dave's record collection.
I haven't been on in AGES but what a great time to get back in. You mention boys burping, but we were at Lake Dawgs yesterday for lunch and my 3-year-old son said "don't burp under the table or the booby monster will come out..." Before I could clarify he must have meant the boogy monster (although he goes by Bloody Bones in our house) my husband, of 37 years of age, let forth a belch that could have teared your eyes from across the street. And then he grinned at me - hopeful the booby monster really would show up....

Anyway- I suppose burping could do a lot of things! It however, isn't curing this grumpadump feeling I've had for days now! I can't figure out why it's there. We are full timing in the Arab again, our house is being packed today to move to Arizona, adventure is on the horizon and my St Johns Wort isn't doing a darn thing... Anyone have a suggestion on getting back to that rainbow??!!? I miss it-

RVM80... following your adventures are a mutant hoot.
I know there is little time for much of anything for you alone given you have a Curiosity going every day - but kids dogs fish and Flyboy and your Web and writings... well I'm tired and borderin on grumpadump just writing about it here... perhaps it's time for moms day out.... I've always said, and told people - you are not what you do. Breakaway from that now and then no matter how rewarding and much you love it. Take some time for you. If you can't breakaway for a day, make a game out of it. Steal the time when you see the opportunity to treat yourself to just being you. Even if for only 15 minutes. Let yer hair down.. That's my 2 cents...

Have a great day. The rainbow is there for you!!

Now that would be a Curiosity of a different color. I don't think we've had a fish with us before...

We ALL need a break (change) from the norm, CC! And a Curiosity is truly that.
Nola and I would love to meet up with your tribe somewhere on the Rainbow, Rebecca! Our spoiling of kids and pets at no charge.

Steve & Annie. Just crossed into the sunshine state. ETA to CG is between 4 and 5 o'clock. Our site is open so we will get MH out of storage and set it up. Thanks for thinking about us.

Welcome back Becky!

Wondering if a probiotic would help your blahs... science has now proven the 2nd place in the body that makes the most feel good neurotransmitter stuff is in the gut and if the good bacteria in there aren't the ones in top spot... you could be suffering from a bit of depression. I persoanlly like to get mine from the foods I eat, but that requires making some fermented foods... such as kefir, kombucha, and kraut...but you can buy that stuff in the stores also... Bubbies dill pickles are a good one as well as their Kraut in the refrigerated section if you don't want to mess with making your own... or buy a good probiotic with like 10 strains of good guys in them...Walmart carries a pretty good shelf stable brand that is less expensive called Ultimate Flora.

Hey Becky! Good to see you posting here! Moving again? Yuck! That alone is cause for grumpadumps, but you might want to research "Seasonal Affective Disorder". It's a depression that stems from short winter days. Mine goes away by mid March, but medication and a Happy Light help.

The good news is that there are a lot of RVMs in AZ for the winter and if you can fit in the time to meet up with a few STMs the laughter alone will chase away your grumpadumps.

Good luck with the move. Tucson is one of my favorite cities. I love all the Saguro cactus -- no two are alike and many look like they are giving the world a giant one finger salute.

Hi Becky! Nice to meet ya. Sounds like you are busier than a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Good luck with your move. Perhaps we'll see y'all on the Rainbow Trail somewhere.
