News and Some ME info...

I'm happy our routine is back in full swing. Chris is off to work, and although the kiddo doesn't go back to school for another week, she isn't here. She always stays with my mom when she has an extended school break, so I dropped her off yesterday and don't get her back until Saturday.

Many of you have commented that you like the new look of my blog. Thank you. I got the template from the Cutest blog on the block. To get there, simply click on the little link in the upper left hand corner of my blog. This site has over 300 free templates for whatever mood you may be in.

Some things I found out over the last few days - Little Coleman and his family desperately need your prayers. If you don't know who I'm talking about, please visit this site. The lastest I heard is that he was airlifted to the hospital on Christmas Day unable to swallow.

Also, on a much less dramatic scale, but none the less prayers are needed, my Uncle Red was hospitalized Friday. He was diagnosed a few days before that with a bad URI and a bladder infection. When my aunt got him to the hospital on Friday his sodium was very low and they said it was a good thing she brought him in. They are going to run some tests today so hopefully everything will be alright.

oKies, now for the 'ME' info - Michelle at Honest and Truly did this fun little meme and said she thought I was one who might complete it, and she was right. Also, her and I have been communicating via e-mail and I'm hoping to at least get to talk to her on the phone! She is in San Antonio at this very moment, and although that is like 5 hrs from me, she is at least in my state!!!

Wait, your husband wants to move to CO and you're not sure? You don't know what you're missing! ;)

And I did just see your email -- just got back from the game, with NO voice left at all... and so sad. I didn't even think to contact you, as Texas is so big! Any suggestions on where to eat breakfast tomorrow? :)

Colorado!!! Well, you'd have some built in friends if you do move here!

Oh... and I only remembered 60% of 2008. That test was wonky though.
