Catching Up

Wow does time fly when you're having fun, or at least when you're busy.  This week has absolutely flown by and I am so sorry that I've neglected the blogosphere this long.  Unfortunately, my posts might be a little more sporadic now that blogging has made it to our no-no list at the office.  Sad panda but I will survive.  Now I can just add blogging to my list of things to do between the time I put Colin to bed at 8 and I go to bed at 9:30ish.  Surely I can squeeze it in sometime between exercising, eating my dessert (yes it's a nightly ritual and one I'm not willing to give up), checking my email (yet another thing that's been taken away from us at work - I work in communist Russia for those of you that didn't know), watching my favorite shows, and scrapbooking.  I mean it is a full hour and half after all!

Speaking of favorite shows, I'm still not too hyped about Idol this year.  I've picked a couple that I think are really talented but honestly I could care less who wins.  I find myself paying more attention to their wardrobe selection and hair and makeup than how well they sang.  Probably not the right reason for watching but I figure they're using stylists that know the latest fashions and while I'm not exactly 16 anymore, I still like to remain current (one of Simon's catch words this season).  So I like the red/maroon haired girl and the guy with black hair down in his eyes - although I don't care for his style of singing, I still think he's super talented.

Way to go Cats!  I almost feel guilty even writing that because I've become such a fair-weather fan this season.  I think it all started because most of the team was comprised of new faces and I didn't really take the time to learn their names.  I definitely have to build a relationship with them (at least in my mind) to really get behind them and root for them as if they were my brother, son, or boyfriend, as is the case with Jodie Meeks.  Sorry Wes, you know I love you.  They pulled off a pretty impressive win today.  And although it was against last-seated Ole Miss, they still showed some effort and most importantly, heart.  In order to win the tournament they'd have to play and win 4 consecutive games and I just don't know that our bench is deep enough to handle it.  Nonetheless, good effort today and keep on keeping on.

Lastly, Colin and I are going on a road trip to NashVegas tomorrow, along with my friend, Brooke, and her daughter (Colin's one-day-wife), Sidney.  We're going to visit another friend and her 2 1/2 year old.  Brooke and I aren't sure what the road holds for us but we're praying for a lot of quiet staring, friendly sharing, and of course sleeping!  Colin has gotten better as of late with riding in the car but we also haven't travelled 3 1/2 hours non-stop.  Should be interesting.  Say a little prayer for me.  Wes told me that he heard the cops were out in full force.  There's a problem, as I hear crying, my foot goes farther and farther down on the accelerator!  Children crying would surely get me out of a ticket, right?  Who am I kidding, the kids would be so scared of some man walking up to the window that they'd go completely silent and there'd go my excuse.  Deep breath, just pray for us!  I know we'll have a great time and we're all really looking forward to it!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.


  1. I hope you and Brooke have a great time! Tell Heather hi.

  2. That sounds like such a fun trip! Hope the kids are good. And I agree, American Idol is not nearly as entertaining this year. I'm rooting for Danny, but I only half watch it, usually I'm reading while it's on now.

  3. Safe travels to NashVegas. Its ok to be a fair weather fan to the Cats this year! Especially when they seem to be a little schizophrenic with their playing. I have been fair weather too!

  4. I've tagged you! Happy Friday!
