I’m bored. Really bored.


random updates.

I’ve been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to think of something funny, interesting or meaningful to blog about, but the truth is, I’ve got nothing. So, instead you’re just going to get a post of randomness.


–  I’m reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that’s been so engrossing. It’s a true story and so far, I highly recommend it.

– We are getting pretty excited for summer and have already started planning a few of our adventures (which include Maine, an Alaska Cruise and hiking the Enchantments)! I love having vacations/travel plans on the books this time of year. It helps me to get through our long Northwest winters/springs. (P.S. I heard it’s supposed to snow this week. Boo!)

– Derek has been cooking up a storm the past couple days. I LOVE it and  really appreciate it!

– We finally bought a desk over the weekend. Hopefully now we can get our second bedroom in order. That bedroom that we NEEDED so badly. 🙂

That’s all I’ve got. Over and out.




Ok, this is kind of embarrassing to admit…I don’t have the months memorized (ie June is the 6th month of year). The first three and the last three are easy, but the middle ones are a little fuzzy. It’s not like I have to use my fingers to count it out, but it’s not second nature. I have to think about.  I have been asking around, and based on the stunned looks I’m getting back, I’m pretty sure I’m the only one.


the blogger’s crack.

As a blogger there is something satisfying about receiving comments on a post. I’m not really sure why, I suppose it is some deep rooted issue with validation or something. Not sure. Over the past three days I’ve received over 250 hits and yet only one comment. ONE COMMENT.  The funniest part, is that Derek posted a link to my blog from facebook and people clicked over, looked at my blog and then returned to facebook and commented on Derek’s facebook page. Sad. No crack for Kindra.

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. I can see that I’m getting decent traffic, but why don’t the visitors comment? Do they not want me to know they’re reading? They’d rather lurk around? I’m not mad that you’re reading, I’m actually thrilled! Don’t be shy!

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
