Hmmm...what do I name this post?

Well, I started this post AGES ago but the pics didn't upload and then I lost interest. So now because of some demand I am getting to post something new then I got the pics to load this time and hence the text is at the bottom and for some reason I can't cut and paste it to the top now! I am challenged. So read the text below and then check out the pictures. If you want to do it that one's forcing!
Jeesh what the heck is this thing called again? I can't remember it's been so long! Ummm, maybe its called a water something or other....
The famous Crocoseum...Just not the same without ol' Stevo I'm sure

It was really cool seeing crocs. The show actually wasn't as fabulous as I had expected. I'm sure it would have been heaps better with Irwin around to do it though. It was neat though.

I can't believe I let my kids get so close to a croc! I must be insane! hahaha

Here they are in a cave. Some moronic kids who should totally have known better and whose parents sat there and watched them interrupt our photo session wouldn't get out of the way!

This tiger looked magestic.

These turtles were pretty sweet. I'd never seen such big ones before

Don't we look happy?!

These elephants were super cool. Pretty smart too. And huge.

My beautiful mother sent us some money for Christmas so instead of just banking the money and spending it on something we "need" I decided to do something fun with the money instead. None of us had been to the Australia Zoo so we decided to go and make a day of it. Here are some pics from the day. I really wish Steve hadn't gone and died though cuz I think it would have seemed more magical if he were there. But we had a good time and even I had a good time! I know that sounds terrible right? I don't know what my problem is. Its just that things don't generally thrill me like maybe they should. But we had a great time! And I sat there and listened to my kids and thought how funny they are and really enjoyed being around them. They must not have been fighting! hahaha aaannnnnd, I was surprisingly NOT tired enough to feel like I wanted to climb in with a giant lizard or a tiger and take a nap! Thanks mom!

Starting off on the right foot

Hey! Well, this morning my hero of a husband told me of one more thing he's done to prove that he's my hero! He caught one of the perpetrators who's been sneaking into my house for the past 2 years, eating my baking, eating my fresh fruit, drooling its slime on my floors and making a plain old nuisance of itself. Here's a photo of the guilty party. Now, before you start thinking ohhh! He's so cute! or Ohhh, its just a poor defenseless animal! Or ohhhh! you're so mean! Let me tell you that these things are just overgrown rats. They are disgusting and they emit a smell somewhat like a skunk. They have long disgusting rat-like tails and would shred your arm or hand if you tried to pick one up. Yeah, he's a poser alright. He was caught red handed and was at our mercy since 2am and does he like it? Noooo, not one little bit! But that's ok! Rick was going to take him over to the area where he's building and I said WHAT! You need to take him to the river for a swim is what you need to do! So as far as I know that's what he did. He said he's not a killer except for cats and I said, you would kill a CAT who at least used to be cute and sometimes still are but you won't kill an ugly creature that breaks and enters and makes you crazy? Whatever.
There have been 4 nights of supper in our house since the new year started. We have had curry 3 of those 4 nights. hahah. We went to a movie on Jan 1 called Frost/Nixon. Anyone seen it? It was pretty good and then went to an indian restaurant (which I had sworn I would never do) but we were with friends and they said there will be no Indian music playing there which was my main concern. Anyways, had the best darn curry ever! I love going to a resto and walking away saying, "oh my gosh! That was sooooo good! I will def come back here." The kind of food that makes you want to go in and say thank you for the awesome food it was delish! So that spurred a curry making trend for me. The 2nd night I made it I even made some roti to go with it. Just the bread. Sooooo yummy.
Well, better run now. Gotta go to work for a few hours. Yay! I mean that too! I haven't worked for a couple weeks now and feel the need to do something different. I don't even have to get dressed up b/c they just want me to do some filing in the back. Adios
