I had to call a company Monday about a toy that we had received that was recalled. I had ordered the repair kit over a month ago, but still hadn’t received it. I was actually calling to check on the status seeing as it had been a month and the company said that the toy … Read More about Those aren’t thinking words!
I’m having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit. I’m not sure what it is…it’s not that I don’t like giving gifts or getting them. It’s not even that I don’t like decorating. The only thing I can think is the idea of traveling around the holidays with a 14-month old (and very independent … Read More about In need of some Christmas cheer
Mr. Serious told me yesterday to make sure that he worked out. So, I did. And being a good, supportive wife (and having a little inspiration from Steph), I worked out with him. Mind you, it was after teaching a class Wednesday night and a class last night, I did a cardio Taebo! It was … Read More about Pre-Thanksgiving work out
Once again, these kids got me sick…I always blame them, but I’m sure that’s not the case. While watching TV last night, I got even stuffier and started coughing. YAY, no sleep for me. Poor #1 is sick, too, so on the way to daycare this morning, we had a coughing battle. She would cough, … Read More about Ugghh…sick

Our church is very busy with new babies, so it took a little while, but she was baptized this week. On April 15, 2007 (which coincidentally is the four year anniversary of our engagement), our little girl was baptized. She wore my cousin Taylor’s baptismal gown (which was very special for me. I’m so glad … Read More about Our baby is baptized
Check it out…there’ve definately been some changes in my life lately!
We had been saying we needed to get together for some time. We finally did, Meg, Linda and me. We had a great time. Had some food, wine and chatting. We hadn’t gotten together in so long…it really was great. A band showed up about 30 minutes before we left. We were the only ones … Read More about Girl’s Night Out
So, again, I should apologize to my loyal (2) readers for my lack of posts. I was in Nicaragua for a week on a mission trip. It went really well and we helped a lot of people. My husband and I even decided to sponsor a child at the local school. I was back for … Read More about Lack of posts and updates
While reading a fellow SU alum’s blog, I was saddened by the news of the death of one of our own. While I didn’t know Heather McGaughey well, I remember her bright light both on and off the stage. She was also very kind hearted, and always curious about people she had just met. She … Read More about Sad day for SU alum
I was finally eligible for a new cell phone last Saturday (but I was departing for my mission trip to Nicaragua). So, I waited until this Sunday to go and get my new one. I was quite excited, because I had the same stinking phone for two years. I could barely hear my husband and … Read More about Gotta love the cell phone companies
I got home late tonight after a couple of errands, but knew that I had a steak to cook. My hubby had taken it out of the freezer two days before, so it needed to be cooked. For those of you that don’t know me, I’m not the greatest cook. I can follow a recipe … Read More about In my rant and frustration
I just had to post this link from another blogger…it is too good to pass up, courtesy of You Can’t Make It Up. I hope you all enjoy. I just wish he would back up his research with facts. If you are going to say that you’ve done research and you know all about it, … Read More about Cruise-tastitc
I got a call the other day from my hubby urging me to call the apartments where we just moved out. He told me that they said they didn’t have our keys turned in (but amazingly, they had everything else). He told me I should talk to Patricia. I called up the old apartments, and … Read More about I’m glad I didn’t say anything mean!
I really have to control myself with this one, so as to not put the name of the restaurant…even though I really want to. I must preface this with the fact that I have previously waited tables for a total of over four years, and my husband had for sometime as well. We went to … Read More about Customer Service 101
We’ve finally decided to move up to a house, still not owning, but renting. It still means sharing no walls, floors or ceilings with anybody else. How great?!? Moving really sucks. It addition to packing and unpacking, you have to deal with all of the utility companies who try to screw you. It sure wasn’t … Read More about Movin’ on up…
While I should be working on a paper and a poster for a conference (next week), I found myself spending some quality time catching up on other people’s blogs. After paying careful attention, I realized that some people had links to other blogs (on their blog)…confusing, but you understand. In fact, I even found mine … Read More about I’m finally up to speed
I recently sent in my passport to get my name changed ( I got married…It only took me a year to decide that, in fact, a name change was in order.) I called to see how long it was going to take, and if I needed a new picture. They told me 7-10 business days, … Read More about Sometimes you have to wonder…
