Hello, March, I'll See You Next Week

Gearing up for a busy week this week.  I'll be working either 4 or 5 ER shifts this week, so the blog may take a backseat for the next few days.  But I'm very thankful for the opportunity to work a bit extra and save a little more for the adoption.  Here's a little glimpse of a couple of things I have been doing:

--I've been plugging right along in my reading the Bible in 90 Days.  I'm about a day and a half behind right now, which is not too shabby if you ask me.  I would like to be reading a bit more "attentively", but I'm doing my best.

--Harper's walking.  Ugh.  How is she big enough to be walking?  Didn't I just bring her home from the hospital?  We finally bought a gate for the bottom of the stairs, Brandon spent the better part of 3 hours installing it, and it lasted for almost 7 days.  That's right:  my children have destroyed the stair gate already.  Harper put the nail in the coffin tonight when she ripped the gate from its' last remaining hinge and threw it on the floor.  Good greif.

--I'm embarrassingly excited that the Olympics is over so I can get back to watching The Office and Law and Order, which have been usurped by curling these last three weeks.  Really, people?  Curling?  How is that even a sport?

--Hot Brandon preached last week and knocked it out of the park, if I do say so myself.  And I say so.  I'm too tired (yes, it's only 8:52 pm) to link to his actual sermon right now, but you can follow the Northside Christian Church link on my sidebar to find it.

Have a great week!

Curling seems like a game that a youth minister makes up at the last minute before a retreat.

I expect to see bowling-with-frozen-cornish-game-hens at a future Olympics.

Enough of the lame Winter Olympic events. Mouguls?? Skicross??

How about normal snow sports like Fort Building, or Snowball Fighting, (you gotta go with Buddy the Elf in that one). How about Snow Pranks? Where you do things like build a huge snowman on your neighbors porch where they can't get out their door. I'd watch that.

The gate lasted for less than a week??? Wow... Who could have seen that coming..... Oh wait!!! Flash back!!

Permanent gate.... Oh that's a goot idea... She would never figure that out.
Get real girl. Check with the marines at Gitmo ... a little constantan wire... welded gate... guards.... that will work..maybe.

I am so thankful that I am not the only one that could care less about the Olympics! Not that I have the station that it airs on. I am however waiting for the latest The Office episode to be put online!

I have to say that I was really glad that the olympics ended too. But I like curling!
