STOMP

Friday we left the house around 4:30 and drove into Philly for dinner and to see Stomp. Katie and I enjoyed Ted’s Montana Grill so much the previous Sunday we decided to take the entire family there. Everybody had bison except for me. Todd dared Taylor to order his hamburger by saying “tatunka”, but Taylor…

The Un-Surprise

I’m taking the family into Philadelphia tonight to see Stomp. Up until about an hour ago it was a surprise for the kids. As happy as they were when they found out what we’re doing tonight I’m a little sorry I hadn’t told them earlier. I’m looking forward to it, but I think I’ll take…

A Few Things…

Lately I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night with my nose as cold as a lonely Eskimo’s. Nothing else is cold. Just my nose. So I bury my face beneath the covers to warm it up. I hate doing that for two reasons: 1. If my nose is stuffy I’ve been breathing…

Philly Fun

I know I said I probably wouldn’t be doing much blogging, but I just couldn’t help myself. Katie and I had so much fun today. I can’t think of any words that can adequately convey just how great it was. We drove into the city and parked in the theater parking lot. From there we…

Holiday Fun

We had company Friday night in the form of some good friends of ours traveling from Missouri to Maine. Technically it was Saturday morning around 1:00 or so. It’s a really good thing they’re planning on stopping here for a couple of nights on their way home because we have a LOT of catching up…

More Nothing

I have it on good authority that holiday calories don’t count. I thought this meant whatever you eat from Thanksgiving until January 2nd was free. My Weight Watcher’s points tracker hasn’t been filled out because I haven’t been consuming any points at all since the fourth Thursday in November. Or so I thought. I had…

It's Almost Here!!

Movies are so expensive that we never just go on a whim anymore. But we plan entire days around some movies. Like this one… Saturday we’re going out to lunch and then to see the new National Treasure movie. I’ve been waiting for this to be released ever since I heard about it. And because…

Hockey Ballet

A neighbor boy of ours is in the 1st grade (I think) and plays hockey. His team got to play between the 2nd and 3rd periods of the Philadelphia Phantoms’ game tonight and Katie, Todd and I went to watch. Not only did we get to watch Alex and the rest of his team out…

My Bad

My fans are clamoring for me to write another post. They both think it’s been too long since my last one. I’m sorry to tell you, Mom and Aunt Thea, that my posting is going to be mighty sporadic until after the first of the year. No doubt most of you can relate. Christmas is…

Okay, I'll Spill

FRIDAY I really wanted to crawl back in my bed after the kids left for school. It was cold and the funk was still upon me. But I couldn’t give in to it because it was my turn to host Home Team. God is so smart that way. If it had been at someone else’s…
