Brett Favre

Football opinions aside, I really admire someone who is willing to laugh at himself. Check out the latest Sears ads at

Weekend Update

We had a good weekend around here. On Friday, Stacy had to go to the vet for her shots, and we found out that she has gained more weight so she has been told to lose 5 lbs. Poor girl.

On Saturday, Todd worked in the family room, he finished the ceiling and lights. So we are all ready for carpet down there. I want to clean out the computer room first and get that recarpeted at the same time since it has really yucky carpet. On Saturday night, we attended the employee appreciation for Todd's work. He received his 10 years of service award. Way to go Todd!! We had a good time visiting with his coworkers, dancing and eating. Oh yeah, and a group of us snuck off to the bar to watch the Colts game. In the meantime, Isaac got to spend some time with his favorite babysitter ever.

On Sunday, we watched the Vikings beat up on the Cowboys. Go Vikes!!

A Crazy Week

Well it has been a crazy week in my world. I have started back to work substitute teaching and have been working 2 days a week so far. I could have had more days if I could somehow be at two schools at the same time. However I haven't figured that one out yet. I am really enjoying the teaching again. Isaac has been doing just wonderful with the whole change. I think that it really helps him that he has a fantastic lady to watch him while I am at work.

On Wednesday this week, I got a flat tire in the middle of my "errands" morning. Todd came to my rescue and I still managed to get most of my errands done. The tire was so flat that we had to order a new one. Also on Wednesday, my landline phone decided to quit working, but they were able to get that fixed by Thursday evening.

So I hope that will be all for my "bad luck" for a while.

Happy New Year

Christmas is done, and we took down the trees today. Isaac is happy to be able to run in the living room again. The tree took up too much space.

School starts tomorrow and I think Isaac is happy to be going back, but he has not complained at all about being home. He wasn't "bored" once. He slept in almost every day so getting up tomorrow morning may be a challenge.

I have set up my new years goals. I am going with a monthly goal system again this year. It makes it easier to actually accomplish some things. Each month I will write out 3-4 goals to accomplish for that month. Januarys include cleaning up my computer room, cleaning out the filing cabinet, and exercising at least three times each week. I am also going back to a gratitude journal this year.

The other 'new' in this year is that I will be going back to substitute teaching a couple days a week. I put my name on the list before Christmas break and already have a few days scheduled. So that should be fun.
