Huge Houses & Private or No?

Jameson finally has two days off in a row starting today! YAY!! We had planned all week to make today a big cleaning day. Needless to say we only got about an hour into our venture and decided to call it quits. :o) Instead we put Blythe in the car and took a drive. First we stopped by the pet store, Bird World, and showed Blythe all the puppies. We held a little Jack Russell Terrier that was so calm and cute, I held him a little close to her so she could see, and she was terrified but so excited at the same time. I wished so much that we could have brought him home, but when the time is right, yes, Blythe will get a dog. 
After the pet store we headed up to the hills above North Salt Lake to look at the houses. This is something that Jameson and I have always enjoyed. One thing we like to do is when we see a 'For Sale' sign that has a flyer we grab the flyer and before looking at the price, we both guess what the price is. And it's always fun to see how off or close we are. So we get up there and there are so many gorgeous houses, and it was so fun to imagine that we were actually shopping for one! The sad thing was that we counted 17 foreclosure signs and 15 for sale signs. Gawr, the economy blows! When we were coming back down we had to stop and take in the view. There was another storm coming over the valley and the light looked so cool coming through the clouds. So enjoy the pics! Houses and the view.
There is an issue out there these days that I am so torn about! There have been reports on the news about the dangers of public blogs. And I have talked to some family members about their feelings. On one hand, I want to protect my family and my privacy, but I'm afraid if I go private that no one will take the time to send me their email so no one will read it. Hmmmmm, maybe a poll?

I myself have thought about going private. I think that you have to do what makes you feel most comfortable. I think that protecting your family should be your first priority. Don't worry about me not reading - I always would!
Blythe's costume was so stinkin cute!
I will be in Salt Lake on the 17th for a work training meeting. I am trying to decide if I am going to take Bailey or not. If I do - I will let you know and maybe we can get together. If I don't bring her then we will totally get together soon!

I say go private. There are a few class blogs so that classmates have info to find you, and then you don't have to worry about freakazoids lurking over your family. You never know who is reading.

I will email you on myspace and give you my email addy just incase. ;)

IF you do go private My email is aaron@mysheargenius.com or cjwarni@hotmail.com. K. Keep in touch. I know that I have been busy. We have had so much going on since we have been back. I try to get on but I get so busy. Things just get so crazy. Aaron is loving his job but he has to travel 6- 10 weeks out of the year. But it is worth him loving his job. We should get together sometime. Keep in touch k.

I say do it.....I went off private for just a little bit and used a blog site meter and I was amazed at how many more people were looking at it compared to when I was private, I just don't like the idea of just anyone looking at my blog. Plus now having kids, I want to make sure they are protected!
