Yes, I've been missing. I'm here, but I'm not. There's a few things on my mind and I've been in a funk.

I've found a new obsession.'s The West Wing. I'm totally into it and can't watch it fast enough because I have to wait for my husband. However, all seasons are available on DVD and through iTunes. Plus there's a plethora of fan fic that keeps me tied over.

We schlepped down to Sea World in San Antonio on Wednesday with the kids. Our oldest had been before on her junior class trip, but the younger two had never been. The park itself pales in comparison to, say, Six Flags over Texas here in our own back yard. But seeing the killer whales was totally worth the downsides of the trip.

We got our son to go on one of the roller coasters. And I'm sorta sorry we did. I have a healthy respect for coasters, and will go on them if they're not too large or scary looking, but the boy was petrified. I would have enjoyed it, but for my fear he was gonna hurl. And had the ride not ended when it did, he would have. I'm all for overcoming your fears, but maybe we should have picked something a little tamer...

Ugh! roller coasters . . . if it is more than 5 feet off the ground, I'm NOT on it..... never did like those things.

Poor T!!!!! I bet he'll never go again!

Was this the Shamu ride for the kids?

I'm okay with most coasters, but the Superman one here at Six Flags had me hugging the trash barrel afterward. Kinda takes the fun out of the rest of the day.

Glad you had fun seeing the killer whales :)
