Excuse me: Can someone turn the rain off?

I can’t handle any more rain, and neither can my poor puppy Diva. We are sick of it! We are sick of walking out side in the rain. We are sick of our hair getting wet!!!
Today when I got home there was no standing water. Then it poured while I was cooking dinner and now we have standing water- ugh. bring on the mosquito infestation!
That water is belly deep on my puppy. She doesn’t like to play in it–trust me, I know. I tried to drag her in it last week when it was also there.
I hate rain- I mean I strongly dislike it right now. I understand that we needed the rain, but this just plain ridiculous!
The power goes out every time it rains- not good when I’m trying to cook dinner. We got a half inch of rain in less then 2 hours today.
It is supposed to rain for atleast the next 3 days according to the weather channel so i guess we’ll just have to deal w/ it. =(

For the love of fishing!

Chris & I got up at 430am to go fishing over in Hernando County on an inshore charter!!! (Chris looks so enthused to be taking pictures @ 5am doesn’t he?—he loves me!)… So we went over to Hernando and went fishing with Capt. Joel (fishdaddycharters.com)! We went to the flats and I caught 2 catfish. No Reds! I REALLY wanted to catch a Red, but of course I know that just bc I want to doesn’t mean i’m going to! If that were the case i’d have caught alot more fish in my life then I have! So after fishing the flats for a while we went out deeper to fish for sharks and whatever else would bite.

I don’t know how far out we were, probably 7 miles and it was only 8 feet deep. You couldn’t see land, but you could see the bottom. We caught a bunch of sharks, which you know I don’t mind since I love love sharks!! They are such a fun fight! and they are cute! Did you know if you lay a shark on its back it will go to sleep? I had heard this but I wasn’t sure if it was for sharks or gators?…it works for sharks, not sure if it works for gators…. We also caught some seabass, lady fish, and some trout. Chris caught a big 23.5 inch trout! we kept it, and we caught one other keeper trout. We brought them home and we had them for dinner tonight! They were delish!


>>>Me “petting” the shark. The feel like sand paper on their head and back, and their belly is really smooth!

Chris & his trout /

After we got done fishing in Hernando beach we came home, got a shower and watched TV…I started reading the fishing reports for Sebastian Inlet and they were bringing some big fish up outta there….Chris jumped up and got dressed and we went fishing- Again…..

We fished the west coast & east coast all in one day! 400 miles!!

We got skunked in Sebastian but we still had a good time. We got down there about 1130,fished for an hour and then slept in the truck from about 1230am-430am… Then we tried to go fish the beach but it was pretty rough. We watched the sun come up and then went to fish the point some before we came home!

(East Coast, Sebastian Inlet 6am)

The Inlet from the bridge that runs from the north side to the south side- that is the south side beach.
Me fishing the point at Sebastian Inlet!

Have you ever?

….written down some of the things you think about during the day? Or the things you dreamt about last night? I don’t know why, but today I started writing down some of the random things I think about during the day.

So here is my list:

  1. weird dreams: i’ve had alot of weird dreams lately, last night I dreamt that one of my exs was gay and that i saw him in the shower with a bunch of random guys. i mean my dream was graphic…..and this ex is so not gay-he’s married….and im not saying which EX in case anyone i know reads this..and they won’t know who i’m talking about bc all but one of my exes is married w/ kids!..
  2. my schedule @ work. I often wonder why do I even bother wasting time making out a schedule when my office manager could care less whether or not she follows it or not ….we alternate days leaving at 5 and 4. i’ll leave at 4 one day and she’ll stay till 5, then the next day she leaves at 4 and i stay till 5. our dr demands that one of us be here until 5 with the receptionists…..but she never follows it and i get stuck here till 5 every damn day. and what is even more annoying is that I come in @ 730 so that I can leave @ 4, and she’ll come in @ 8-815 and still leave at 4…how is this fair? …..
  3. my classes @ school. I think i’m going to have to take 2 more pre-reqs before I can apply for the billing/coding program….both of whichi don’t think i should have to take. One is INTRO to computers…I’ve taken a billion computer classes in college, and the other one is basic anatomy & physiology! But i’ve already taken Anatomy & phy 1 & 2…shouldn’t those cancel out the basic?? Oh I sure hope so! UGH!
  4. thoroughness, my ofc mgr is not thorough at all. she makes me crazy. she half ass does thing so that she can get through it quickly and then I end up cleaning up her mess later on because she didn’t do it right the first time! AGH!
  5. My dang dog Diva and her love for my chap stick. She has eaten 2 chapsticks and a lip gloss. WTH!

So there. That is a serious peek into my brain.

Camping at Shell Key Preserve!

So Chris & I were supposed to be in Costa Rica(for our honeymoon) from April 26th – May 2nd. But due to the economy we were unable to go. So we cancelled our trip and decided we go on our honeymoon another time. Chris granny & Papa gave us a weeks time share for our wedding gift so we will be able to use that any time up until June 2010.

So instead we decided that we would just take a long weekend and go camping. We recently discovered we enjoy camping. Well, Chris has been camping before but I haven’t really. So Chris and I went down to Shell Key Preserve and camped Thursday, Friday, and came home Saturday afternoon. It was a great time! We fished all day and just hung out with each other. It was really nice & relaxing. We were the only ones in our immediate area that were camping on the island. There were some other folks camping down on the beach but where we were there was no one else. It was really nice!

We have a 14ft Jon Boat that we took from the Ft Desoto boat ramp to Shell Key Preserve. We loaded up the boat with our stuff and took off. We only had a few leaks, lol! We were taking on more water then I liked, apparently Chris thought the same thing but he didn’t let me know that he was some what worried! We went to what we thought was the right island….but it just didn’t look right so Chris called one of his friends and he told us which island it was. But before we left unloaded the boat and “patched” our leaks! ……our “patches” were the tails of some plastic/rubber artificial lures that Chris has. We had no other options so that was what we did!

See the little green tail! That was one of our plugs! Lol!!! So we made it to our island and then set up camp. …Friday we went back to the boat ramp and went to the store, i forgot some stuff and there was a hardware store where Chris could get something to plug our holes. We had a few! =)

The weather was great during the day! Thursday night was nice, but really windy & cold! Friday night was absolutely miserable! It was hot, no breeze, and lots of bugs. The good thing about the breeze is that it keeps the bugs away! So Friday night was very sleepless! Saturday morning we decided that we couldn’t handle another night like that so we fished all day Saturday and then packed it up and headed home Saturday afternoon. —We didn’t catch very much. Thursday night Chris went and fished off the beach and caught a couple of trout! Then I went down there with him and I caught 1 trout. Friday morning we went out fishing and caught another trout but other then that we didn’t catch anything! Didn’t matter, we still had a great time!!!
<— My hubby cookin' me some trout!!!
So all in all we had a great weekend!!!
