i suck at posting.

Ha. I totally suck at posting..not as much as other people say joel. or sidra.

(my best friend freakin got promoted and didnt even call to tell me but rather let me read about it in her blog--this may be an unforgivable sin--she better repent)

anyway, the cars actually working. its kinda cool.

had dinner with tim and christy friday night. it was good times, ah roadhouse.

took the kids to a quiz gathering at gilman saturday night. Ah, kids.

ups, downs, all arounds

Monday, unhappy (blaming ryan).
Tueday, unhappy (car broken)
Wednesday, happy-good times at work, unhappy car broken no quiz practice, happy movie with
my husband
Thursday, unhappy (crazy stuff at work)
Friday/Saturday--friday-party at allisons-things have to be fun, saturday-husband and i
both have the entire day off-with absolutely NO COMMITMENTS. Thats right. Be jealous.

So it sounds like mostly downs, but there were some high points. It wasn't all bad. I got to see a lot of my husband (due to broken car) and talk to a few friends. Oh, and we found out Tim and Jen George are moving to 45 minutes--ish away--so that'll be cool too.

Anyway, I leave you with this random important quote:

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell. ~C.S. Lewis

quizzing, what else?

so since everyone is probably dying to find out how my team did saturday--they were second. A super close second--so i was proud of them--but even more crazy proud that all 3 of my quizzers that went placed in the top 15 !! YAY!! they were all crazy was i. then we went to see Hoodwinked--very very funny movie-see it if you get a chance.

in other news--i went to kokomo thursday night to take jen a hot was great to be able to do something fun and suprise her like that..and i think she really needed that hot dog to help her through her crisis...i was pretty tired on friday because we stayed up so late thursday but it was totally worth it.

Jeremy wants me to run away with him, but since I don't run, i guess i won't do that. besides, if he runs away, who will solve all my computer problems?

Scottie is my love anyways, so it would be silly to go running with someone else. Unless it was Gina, and I was as dedicated as she was to health and well-being. maybe someday. Good luck Gina!!

anyway, happy week everyone! i'll try to be more exciting in the future.

New years with Chicago Central.

Last night was the annual Chicago Central district new years lock-in. So we gathered up our teens and headed to Lombard for an exciting evening. We were an hour we played volleyball until some other people showed up, then we all just hung around. Had an interesting worship service (well suited perhaps to college students at college church a little too reflective for our group). Then we loaded up once more and headed to gameworks for unlimited play until 5:30AM. It was a good time. I got to hang out with my girls, see a couple of girls from camp (ok more than a couple)....and we got to hang out with Jeremiah Thompson (i.e. alphabetical chapel buddy, husband of charlene, part time youth pastor in Elgin) and that was way cool. I also got to Paul Johnson, Dave Ludwig and a few other good times...the future looks bright..

I'm totally overwhelmed at work--but i'll get through it--so many court reports, so few days...and i get to be on call for the first time the first week in february--YIKES.

anyway, i have to get ready to go out...cherylandas husbands birthday and all. :)

happy new year

Well, scotts family came for christmas. it was fun...and rachel and joel were here too and that was way fun. I guess until they were actually here i didnt realize how much i missed them. it was good times though. and rachel made me this really cool serving tray with mickey-i bet you want to see pictures--maybe next time.

rachel and joel should move back (or at least closer-maybe ohio--its half way) so that we can have kids together (that gives them a few years!).

News years party was good times with ryan, randy, melanie, jeremy and the husband. too bad i felt like DEATH the next day--and we only drank pepsi. we played some games and had christmas yet again. i think we're done now-so thanks to everyone for all the awesome gifts.

Today scott and i bought a washer at menards (it was a christmas present!). Christy and i had some chinese here in town. those are the events of my life.

To my dearest ryan: you deserve to be happy. truly happy. don't get bogged down in all the crap. you're a nice guy and you deserve to be treated that way, and if no one else tells you--I LOVE YOU.

well..its off to bed so i can return to work tomorrow. hope everyone enjoys the first week of 2006.
