Good morning, at least to those of you that are up at 2 am CST... I should be doing Greek homework, but I thought I would update the status of our life. Our girl scout cookies are almost gone. I know, I know you wonder how we make them last so long. It is called discipline-or maybe its because Mickie hides them... You decide. Speaking of food, awhile ago I found a really cool website that gives you all the top secret recipes of your favorite restaurant food. My favorite is the Starbucks Frappuccino.
I put up a new page for the baby tonight. You can see some photos of the nursery. The photos are the same as on this page but I will update soon. We have a little over a month to go although we wouldn't mind a bit if the baby came a little early. We are both really excited. I'm not nervous yet so somebody needs to let me know when I should be. We still need to buy a stroller and car seat. We are waiting on a friend of Mickie's who said she would give us one, but we haven't seen her for a while.
I was trying to get a new driver this weekend on Ebay but was unsuccessful. I bid on a 320ti Taylor Made driver in two separate auctions and both times lost by one dollar. I am also bidding on a new bag for my golf clubs. I want to get one that has the back-pack straps. They are a lot easier to carry and more comfortable. I decided that I am only going to buy one new golf item per year-I just haven't decided if it will be a driver or bag. (I am also looking at a new putter...)
We went to Mickie's parents for the weekend. It was very relaxing and a lot of fun. Friday night we went to an silent auction/pig roast for Kelsie's (Mick's little sister) school. They had a lot of stuff but most of it was crafty and and not that great. They did have a really cool americana quilt I tried to get for Mick but alas much like ebay I lost. We did bid on a shelf and won. That was part of the live auction. I have never been to one of those before but it sound like the auctioneer is just making truck sounds with his mouth-I can do that... They also tried to auction off some donated 4 wheel ATV's and a motorcycle but nobody bid. I felt kind of bad but there weren't a lot of people in the room with that kind of money.
Saturday I tried to help Denny build a chest of drawers. I got to run the hand held circular saw and he even let me cut some stuff on the table saw. I would like to do some word working but I have neither the time nor the tools. The dresser should turn out really nice though. He is doing a really good job.
We have missions conference at school this week. I am looking forward to it-not because of the great messages and missionaries we get to hear from, but because it will give me a chance to catch up...
I have to praise the Lord for his providence and safety. [mom you can skip to the next paragraph if you want] I took my motorcycle out for the first time trying to get it warmed up after sitting through the winter. I was taking it slowly on the road in back of our house when the front brake locked. I wasn't going fast so I didn't fly off, but it wouldn't move and I was stuck in the middle of the road just around a curve. Right then 2 other guys on bikes road up and helped me get the bike off to the side of the road. It sat for about 10 min and was fine. I will try to get it in to be looked at soon.
We have some new neighbors. Pray that we will get a chance to witness to them. I am going to invite them to our easter cantata so pray that they will be able to go.
Well, my NCAA tournament brackets are surviving...barely. I still have chance in a couple of the challenges that I am in. I entered about 4. In the espn challenge I was in the 99th percentile after the first weekend but now I am in the 80th. Still pretty good but nowhere near the top. I should have entered Mick because she absolutely obliterated my bracket. She got 3 out of the final four. I am not sure how she picked her bracket but needless to say she is filling out mine next year... She picked the East Rutherford region perfect except for one game.
