Yummy Supper

Tonight we weren't really sure what we wanted to have for supper. Scott decided that grilling sounded good, so he made burgers and they were very yummy!! He's very good at grilling. I am so full now though...I couldn't think of eating another bite of anything for the rest of the night.

New House Light

Today Scott and I went to Home Depot because we were looking for a new house light for the outside of the house. Unfortunately they really didn't have what we were looking for. I think we're going to have to check out Menards or some other store like that, because we just had no luck at Home Depot.


Are you looking for information on Harlem? If so, Welcome to Harlem can help. They started up in 2006 and make it easy for businesses to get information to the public, and for the public to get information in return. If you're visiting or a resident, this is a great way to get information on event notifications, dining, shopping, entertainment, Harlem New York Real Estate, and more. They eve give tours, which I thought was one of the neatest things that they do here. On these tours you can go bargain shopping, see some famous Black Churches, and so much more. Learn more on this site today.

Dr. Appt.

I had my 32 week dr's appointment today and it went very well. It's always fun to hear the baby's heartbeat. Today was a little bit different than most visits because we met with another one of the doctor's, just in case he's on call when we go in to have the baby. He seemed like a nice guy. We've met them all now, and they all seem great.

What a nice day

What a nice day Scott and I had today. It was so nice that he could take the day off...I enjoyed spending time with him so much!!:) I had some work to do on the computer this morning, but after that we just got to enjoy each other's company. With his busy season around the corner, I know that our time together will not be as much so we really enjoyed having today to just bum and relax.

It's been so nice having my piano here at our house now. I've enjoyed having it in that front living room so much!! Not only has it filled in a space that was so empty and bare now...but it just fits in so well in there and looks beautiful! I have even found myself playing it a few different times this week. It's just so much fun to have it here and play when I want to. It's been a while so I"m a bit rusty, but it still is fun.

Yummy Veggies

Recently my parents gave us some really great veggies that a neighbor of theirs had given them from his garden. This man grows so many different things in his garden, and is so good to give my parents some each year. I got different kinds of peppers, tomatoes, etc...and last night I used some of them in the Spaghetti Bake that I made. It turned out pretty good I thought. Scott isn't a huge fan of the peppers, but with time he's gotten better about at least trying to eat some of them and not picking them all out.:)

Karate Gi

Have you ever heard a karate uniform called a Karate Gi before? I hadn't until just recently, but apparently that is another name for a karate uniform. Are you interested in Karate? What about finding a gi? If so, you can find what you are looking for at the Karate Depot. They have the uniform to suit your needs and interest. You'll find great brands for very reasonable prices. Not only will you find the uniforms on this site though, you will also find reviews on products, inventory lists, and so much more! If Karate is something you're interested in, I definitely recommend checking out this site today.

Our Neighbor

Our neighbor next door is working on repainting his home. From what I can's quite the job. Last weekend he was priming his house with some friends, and it took them all day long! Throughout the week, I've seen him scraping off the paint around his trim and today I think he may actually begin painting his house. I'm curious to see what color he chooses.

This weekend

I'm really looking forward to this weekend. Scott and I rarely have a whole weekend to spend together...but since he took off Friday and he has off Monday for Labor day, we will have the whole weekend together. It's nice to have that time, because soon he will begin his busy season and then I will not see him as much. I'm glad he thought to take the day off.

Maui Vacation

Maui is somewhere I've always wanted to go for a vacation. I've heard it is just beautiful!! Now I might just have that chance, as Gebhart Properties has announced that they have a new website with information about their Hawaii Resort and vacation homes that are right there on the ocean, as well as a Maui Vacation Rental. Gebhart Properties is known for the quality of resorts and homes that they provide. They are luxurious and very nice for people who are looking for a spacious place to stay. If you're interested you check out their site. They have information on Hale Nani Loa Maka...the Kolea Villa as well as Hale Ke Kai, a two level private home. Check them out today and see what you think.

Doctor's Appointment

Tomorrow I have another Doctor's appointment to go to. I'm going every two weeks now, so the weeks just fly by! We're actually meeting with one of the other doctor's tomorrow, just to get to know him a little bit and become familiar with who he is in case he is on call when we have our baby. I thought that was nice that the hospital allows you to do that...makes it easier to familiarize yourself with all three doctors.

My Grandma

My grandma is in the nursing home with Alzheimers. She doesn't recognize any of us, and she doesn't say a whole lot either. Scott and I both would really like to get a chance to see her before his busy season starts because it's been a while since we last were there. It's always nice to visit her and tell her what we've been up to...I like to think that some how she's understanding what we're saying, but just can't express herself any more. Alzheimers is really a sad disease...I hope someday we can find a cure for it and understand it better.

Baby Gifts

Being pregnant and expecting my first baby, I'm all about finding the best deals on baby stuff. There's actually a cute site that I came across recently where buying baby gifts is really easy and fun! You'll find cute and creative gifts for babies and older children as well. You can even find gifts for the moms at The Nest Baby. Whether you're looking for apparel, announcements, bibs, blankets, or something else, The Nest Baby Shop has it. You can even get many of these items personalized which makes for a very special gift. Check out this site if you're looking to buy baby gifts or even planning a baby shower...they have everything you would need.

Supper Tonight

Scott's mom asked me if I would like her to pick me up tonight to go to the dinner that they're having at the golf course. I thought that would be fun, that way I'll get to see Dad and Scott too. It sounds like there is going to be some pretty yummy food pork chops, steak, etc. I thought that was nice of her to invite me...and that way I don't have to think about what to make for supper either.

Beautiful Day

It's really a beautiful day out today. I woke up and saw the sun shining and heard the birds chirping! :) It is a little bit chilly out this morning, but actually perfect weather for dad and Scott to be golfing. This way they won't get to warm and warn out too early. They actually even grabbed a couple of light it much have been pretty cool. They'll still have fun though.:)

Sea World Tickets

If you've ever been to Orlando before, you know that they have so many different types of fun theme parks, dinner shows and attractions. You might be wondering how to go about getting tickets to all of these things though. Well, if you check out, they will make it simple for you! They are a great source to find discount tickets on theme parks, dinner shows and attractions. YOu can find tickets that will last you many days at the lowest prices around. No more having to spend an arm and a leg just to get your family into the parks for one day! You'll be amazed at all they have to offer...everything from SeaWorld Tickets to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. Check them out today and see what you think.

Golfing all day!

Dad and Scott woke up early this morning to get ready for their full day of golf!! I guess this tournament is quite the ordeal, as they golf from 8-6. Scott's work company is hosting the event, and they make breakfast, dinner and supper available to them at no cost. I thought that was pretty nice. I think they should have a great time.

Golfing at Night

Yesterday my dad came up because this morning he and Scott had a golf tournament that they are golfing in. He was able to eat supper here, and then he and Scott went out and hit some golf balls at a driving range that's not far from where we live. They enjoyed themselves, but said that once it got dark they could not see a thing. The driving range didn't have any lights like most the dark made it difficult.

Miami Heat Tickets

My husband is a huge sports nut. I've always wanted to take him to an NFL or NBA game before, but getting tickets is next to impossible. Well, this is what I thought anyways, until I found out that there is a site, Premium Seats USA, that makes it easy to obtain tickets to all of your favorite NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL team, and Concerts. They have a really large selection of tickets to all of these different types of events nationwide! No more calling and being told that the tickets are sold out, or that they don't have the seats you want when you call to order your Miami Heat tickets. I'm definitely going to look into this ticket broker next time I'm considering surprising my husband and I think you should check them out too.

Scott's Mom

Last night Scott's mom was in town, as she had a meeting at church. She stopped by to see us to say hi, because she got into town a little early. It was nice to see her and be able to chat for a it had been a while since the last time we saw her. I like living this close to's much easier to see every one that way.

Black Friday!!

How many of you out there have shopped on Black Friday? I never used to, until a couple years ago when I went with my mom. Now my mom and I want to go every year because of the great deals you can find for all of your Christmas shopping needs!! The one thing that is kind of a hassle about this day of shopping, is that it's also the day when every one else wants to get out there and shop too. This can make shopping pretty hectic, and not so fun. That's why I was excited to find a site out there that lets you purchase items sold on Black Friday from the comfort of your own home. This site makes it possible for you to shop online and not have to worry about those long, long lines. They also send out e-mail alerts to let you know about new black friday ads, like thanksgiving ads or the the Target Ad. It's really a very neat that I'm going to be sure and share with my mom as well. Check them out today and see what you may never have to fight that busy shopping day ever again!!

Is it really almost september already?

My husband's Aunt recently asked me to get together a list of names and addresses for a baby shower that they are throwing for us at the end of September. I was a little shocked that she would be asking for these addresses and names already...but then thought about it and realized that it's really not that far off. Time is just going more quickly than I realized, and she's right...if she is going to send them out 2-3 weeks early...that only gives us a week or so to get the address and names together. It makes me excited that time is going that quickly though...because that means October will be here before we know it and we'll have our little one in our arms!:)

Allegro Medical

Have you ever heard of Allegro Medical before? If not, you should know that they are a large online retailer of life enhancing and home medical products, sold here in the US. They have been around for over 10 years now, and are known for their medical equipment, home health care supplies, exercise and fitness equipment, nutritional dietary supplements, maternity/baby supplies and much more. Have you ever heard of them before? I hadn't until just recently, but was quite impressed with their they serve over 1 million people!! Wow! If interested in learning more about this company, check out their site and see what they have to offer you.

The Day Off

I was happy today, because Scott told me that he's taking Friday he'll have Friday through Monday off to spend with me. He wanted to take some time, since soon the busy season will start up and we won't see each other a whole lot. I'm so glad that he took the initiative to do we can just enjoy our weekend and each other's company.

Dead Sea Bath Salts

A couple of years ago, my husband and I bought some dead sea salt from a vendor in the mall. The salesman told us how good these salts were for the skin, and that they could help relieve different skin conditions, such as eczema for example. We decided to try it, and wow...does it work!! It makes your skin feel healthier and more moisturized because of all the minerals that it has. I was really impressed with these products, and I think you would be too. You should look into trying dead see bath salts for yourself and see what you think.

Working From Home

When my husband was offered his current job last February, we had to move, therefore I had to leave the teaching job that I had. After our move, I thought about subbing, but instead, Scott and I decided that I would stay home and make money from there. We found out we were expecting our first child during this time, so me staying home made sense anyways...since that is what I will be doing once the baby arrives in October!! It's been so much fun working from home...I just love it. I am constantly looking for business opportunity after business opportunity to make some extra cash.

Las Vegas

Have you ever been to Las Vegas before? I have only been there once...when I was younger with my family. It was actually a pretty neat place...with tons to do. We only spent a couple days there, but there's probably enough to do to last an entire vacation if you wanted it to. One of the things I remember best about Las Vegas, besides the heat, was all of the motels. There was the MGM, the Sahara hotel, and so many others. They were all so big and beautiful!! It would be fun to go back sometime and visit again.


I don't know why, but for some reason over the past week or so, my allergies have just been terrible. It's kind of a bummer too...because some nights I would love to turn off the air conditioner and open up the windows...but that really makes my allergies act up more. It must just be that time of year again when my allergies are going to be a pain.


How would you like to plan All Inclusive Cancun Vacations? I have never been to Cancun, but know many people who have...and this is something that I would love to do someday. I know that Karisma Hotels would be a great place to start when I begin planning a vacation like this, because they have many beach resorts along the Riviera Maya in Mexico. They're supposed to be just amazing! The collection of resorts that they have, includes the new Gourmet-Inclusive ones that focus primarily on outstanding cuisine for those who love food. The thing I like about Karisma Hotels, is that it seems that each one has something different to offer. Some are more focused on honeymooners and lovebirds for example. If you'd like to learn more about these amazing resorts, check out their site today! They make it really easy and convenient for you to set up the vacation of your dreams!

Grocery Shopping

It's been a couple of weeks since Scott and I got groceries...and we can really tell. Our cupboards and refrigerator seem almost bare, and we are finding it harder and harder to come up with things that we can have for suppers. I think tonight we're going to plan on getting some things after Scott gets home from we are in need of some important things like laundry detergent, milk, etc. Hopefully he gets off work at an earlier enough time so we can do this.

Watching Zoe

We're watching Zoe for the next couple of days, and so far she's done very well here. I think she is really getting used to be here at our new house with us....I'm sure it somewhat reminds her of home. She's been sleeping a lot, and at night begs Scott to take her on a walk. He's always really good about doing this, as he knows that she's been waiting all day to see him while he's at work. I don't think we'll be getting a dog anytime soon, as they are such a huge responsibility on top of taking care of a family...but we sure enjoy "borrowing" Zoe from my parents from time to time.:)

Lovers Planet

There are so many dating sites out there, each one offering their own unique benefits to those who join. Lovers Planet is one of these sites, open to those who are looking into dating russian women. These women are seeking men for lasting relationships and marriage. That is something that many Russian women want. They put their family first, and make it a priority to have a life partner. On this site you will find thousands of profiles and photos of single Russian and Ukraine women!! You can join and search through the profiles and even post your own profiles in just's really quite easy to to do. So, if you're looking for love, then this may just be the site you've been looking for. Check it out today.

Easy Week

This week should be a pretty easy week for Scott as far as work goes. He worked yesterday and he'll work today. Then tomorrow he'll work in the morning, and head back to FC for his dentist appointment. Tomorrow night he's going to go hit some golf balls with my dad to prepare for their all-day golf tournament on Thursday that they have for Scott's work. Then on Friday Scott wants to try and take the day off so he has a long weekend and so he is able to go to my next doctor's appointment with me....hopefully it works out to do that.

Daily Dating News Blog

I have often written about the busyness of life, and how this has lead many people to turn to the online dating world. I think it's great that there are so many options out there for people who are looking for love or even friendship. I recently came across a very interesting blog that I really enjoyed. Daily Dating News is a wonderful site that offers daily information on these social networking sites and the different dating sites available out there for you to check out. I also liked how the author of this blog makes sure to put some interesting dating facts within his posts including tips, news, experiences, great stories and so much more! If you're interested in learning more about dating, specifically your options of finding singles online, I strongly urge you to check out this site.

Happy Birthday Scott

Today is my hubby's birthday!! Unfortunately he had to spend his birthday at work...but that's ok, because we had a fun filled weekend with both sides of the family to help him celebrate!! I think he really enjoyed getting to spend time with his family and mine. He even got to go golfing, which is one of his favorite hobbies to do.

Landscape Rocks

Landscaping is something that we never really thought about until we recently bought our first home. Now landscaping is one of the things on our list of things to do down the road. One thing that I've read about, and really think is a possibility for us is using artificial rock, rather than real rock. It's great, because you can get fake rocks that look real and are very durable. These types of realistic types of rock can be found at the Artificial Rocks Factory. They have about 20 different models of boulders that are all hollow and about one-inch thick. These rocks can be found in three colors. The greatest part in my opinion about getting these "fake" rocks from the Artificial Rocks Factory is that they are shipped to customers' doorsteps through FedEx Ground within two weeks of being that's service!! They're much more reasonable than buying the real stuff....and they are much, much lighter and easier to haul! You should really check out their site if you're interested in learning more about this company. You can click on the different rock available and get a 360 degree view of them. It's really quite neat! Check them out and see what you think...I believe you'll be as impressed as I was with what they have to offer.

Busy Day

Today has been a pretty busy day for me so far. I planned on doing work on the computer, but found that I had laundry to do, cleaning to get done, errands to run, etc. It's almost 4:00 now and I'm finally getting the chance to sit down and do some work. Oh well, I guess that's how some days go.


It seems that I hear a lot more people saying that they prefer to drink tea over coffee these days. In fact, after being pregnant, I've been told that tea is actually better for you to drink...especially some of the herbal teas. At Revolution, they have blenders and herbalists who mix together really fresh teas, fruits, herbs, spices and more! Yum...just writing it makes me want to have some. The reason why their tea is so good, is because they've taken many years to perfect it to the best tea out there. They've perfected tea blends, brewing methods, etc. You might be thinking to yourself, but I'm not much of a tea drinker. If those are your thoughts, don't worry....they have tried to make this tea so everyone will be pleased!! Thinking that you'd like to try this kind of tea?? If so, I recommend that you check out their site today. You can find information on their different types of teas, as well as place your order right there on their site. Having been to their site, I can tell you that it's laid out very nicely. They've made it very user-friendly and easy to navigate, making it simple to find exactly what it is you're looking for. Check them out today and see what you think.

When we got home last night, my piano was finally here!! YYEEAAHHH!!! It looks so nice in our new place...I'm just glad that we finally have it now. My parents said that the piano movers came a little late, but that they did a nice job getting the piano from there to here without much problem. I'm just happy to have it here finally.

Scott's Birthday #1

Last night we had a nice time with Scott's family. We went to a really good BBQ restaurant and then had some time to hang out and just enjoy the evening. Scott had a really great time too...which is good because it was his birthday that we were getting together for. I'm glad that it worked out for everyone to get to get together.

They want to give you a place that you're happy to live in. They are very creative and good at working with you when you have a budget that is necessary to stay within.

With the busyness of life and so many people working these days, it can be very difficult for people to get out there and meet people. Especially those who are looking for someone special, and are looking to start a relationship or begin dating. Finding time to do this when you work all the time can be very challenging....and that's why I think the online dating site, is so great.

Well, the biggest reason I promote is because it's a quality dating site that never asks you for your credit card. That's right!! It's absolutely FREE!!

Fun Day

Yesterday was such a fun day. My Aunt Sandy had a dentist appointment at the dentist office where my mom works, so they asked me to meet with them for lunch. It was so great spending time with them, catching up and talking about all kinds of stuff. I really enjoyed it and am happy that they invited me along!

I don't know about you, but shopping is one of my favorite things to do! I love to go out shopping to the malls and the stores, but I also really enjoy the convenience of shopping online. There is just so much to offer out there, and it makes me really happy to know that I can browse and shop for the things I really love right from the comfort of my own home.

Chantelle Bras

Attention all ladies out there...have you ever heard of the Chantelle Lingerie collection before? I had never heard of the them until just recently when I was browsing the web, and wanted to share with you what I found out about this great brand.

If you're someone who would appreciate a great fitting, high quality apparel item from Chantelle, then you should really check their site out and see all that they can offer you.

Piano Movers

The piano that we're going to moving to our house, is actually in my parent's basement. It's a super heavy that was very hard to get down in their basement many years ago. One of the guys who was helping move it down there actually thought he broke his ankle. It was a very tricky job and they were so relieved to get it down there. Now, many years later, I am wanting it at my home, and my parents are wanting it out of their basement. The only problem is...the piano is still just as heavy :) and not going to be fun to get out of that basement. My dad called around and it sounds like there are some local piano movers that would be willing to come move it and haul it. That was great news to all of us, because we had no idea how we were going to get that thing out of that basement, into a trailer and hauled to our place.

Tuesday, August 21, 2007


I really think that light fixtures add a lot to a person's house. Now that we're finally all moved and settled, there are many light fixtures that we'd like to change at some point. Our bathroom has a really nice one...but at some point we will be looking for bathroom lighting in our downstairs bathroom. I'm excited for the time when we can start looking...I just love shopping for stuff for the house! I think the would be a great place to look when we're ready, as they have a great selection of brands and prices to choose from. If you're in the market for lighting, check out this site today.

Mark Schultz

Christian music is most definitely my favorite type of music out there. It's the most uplifting and positive music...I listen to it every chance I get. I just love the variety out there. There's so many different kinds of artists and Christian music to choose from. One of my favorite singers is Mark Schultz. His songs are so touching....they actually bring tears to your eyes. I had never heard his song "He's Walking her Home" until just recently, and wow...what a great song!! I urge everyone to listen to this song, and others that he sings!! The lyrics and song for this particular song are below:

As I was browsing the web the other day, I came across a great site that offers information on their free diet and fitness website. is a great site, and one that I thought many of my readers may enjoy taking a look at. They have a calorie counter that is really easy to use, and the great thing about it is that it helps to teach us better eating habits and basically how to live a healthier lifestyle overall by helping us see the calories in food, as well as a calorie chart. I was really intrigued by all this website had to offer, and I'm sure you will be as well. The greatest part is that their site is 100% free!! Take a look today and see what you think.


When it comes to pajamas, I've never really spent a lot of time or money into buying them. I usually just figure that a pair of sweats and a t-shirt are sufficient. However, last Christmas my parents and Scott's dad both got me really nice pajamas...the kind that are perfect for the winter time. They are comfortable and warm...something that's really important when you live in the midwest! I'm sure there are many out there who have their own taste in pajamas...some may prefer to wear shorts and a t-shirt...maybe even some like sexy lingerie?! Whatever it is that you like to wear for pajamas...the most important thing in my opinion is that it's something that's comfortable, and warm in my case.


One thing I noticed as we were moving recently was how many books we have. We have so many books and such a variety as well. There are the pregnancy books, the parenthood books, the devotionals, inspirational books...the list truly does go on and on. I'm so glad that we have a nice bookshelf to keep all of these books it makes them easy to access and read often. I'm guessing that over the years, this bookshelf will continue to fill up, probably with photo albums, baby books, etc.

Scott's Job

With Scott's job he does a lot of things with his hands. He's always working with machines, chemicals, etc and it's really important that he keep his hands safe. One thing I've noticed him carrying around a lot are box cutters. It's nothing special and really looks unsafe. He carries it in his pockets a lot and from what I can tell, one wrong move and the cutter could open. I'd like it if he'd look into getting a nicer box cutter, one that has some sort of a lock feature on it and one that is created to keep your hands safe, not just made for the purpose of cutting boxes. Hopefully he'll look into that soon.

House Layout

I know I've been talking about our new house a lot lately...but I after having rented for so many years...both Scott and I are so happy to have a place we can call ours and home. I think the best part about owning a home rather than renting one is that you can do the updating and decorating that you want. We so appreciate the little things, like being able to paint the walls the colors we want, and being able to put new doors on. The layout of our home is a little different. Right now the way it is set up...we have one really long room which is half office and half bedroom. Someday we'd like to separate the two rooms and get some really nice contemporary office furniture in the office room, and add a bigger closet to the bedroom part of it. Again, these are all things we've only discussed and it will be quite some time before we actually get to these projects that we'd like to do.

House Projects

Now that my husband and I finally have our I own place, we often talk about all of the potential it has and the things that we can do to it down the road. There are many things that we'd like to do to the inside of the house, specifically in our partially finished basement, but there are also things that we'd like to do outdoors as well. Scott would really like to relandscape around the house sometime, and maybe even add a deck. I think it would be cool to have some sort of an outdoor kitchen or something on the deck...where people could gather and have a good time. Who knows what we'll all end up doing, but it's fun to talk about it and dream.

Now that we're all moved in to our new place, the piano is the only thing left to move in. The piano that I'm going to be getting for our new home is actually one that I grew up learning how to play on. When I was younger, I was really interested in learning how to play the piano. My parents found a great piano for just 75 dollars!! They bought it and brought it home, where they stained it and got it looking so beautiful!! This piano was one that had been in a school and kids had market all over it. After sanding it down and staining it...the piano looks as good as new and so beautiful!! My parents did such a GREAT job on it! I was so excited to have this piano when I was younger, and will be very happy to get it moved into my new home. I'll keep you updated on how that process is going.

Start Your Business

I recently came across a great site while browsing the web. This site is a company who helps people like you and me make our dreams of starting our own business come true. They are a Nevada corporation. They actually help thousands of people start their own business each year!! I thought this was great. Another thing I liked about them is that they don't charge you an arm and a leg for their services. All they want to do is help you with the paperwork and the things that are often very complicating and overwhelming for those who have never started a business before. They also help to get you a place to start. You are free to use their virtual offices and executive suites for 45 dollars a month...this includes free phones and internet. Wow! Wouldn't that be great to have someone who is reliable and dedicated to helping you do all of that stuff for you?! I sure think it would be nice. They can help you no matter what state you live in, but some of the most popular are Nevada, Texas, Florida and Arizona. I don't know about you, but I was really impressed with all this site had to offer. It was so informative and has so much to offer those who are interested in starting up their own business. If this is something you might be interested in, check them out today.

Rainy Weather Again

Today is definitely another very gloomy day. It's pretty bad when it's the middle of the day and you need to have lamps on in your house just have some light. It's so dark outside, and appears as though it could rain any minute. The thunder has been roaring all morning long, and from what the weatherman is telling could be like this the entire week. I sure hope not! I mean, the cooler weather is ok...but the rainy weather I could live without.

Yellow Pages

Did you know Colizer Inc is the leader in Internet search marketing solutions? Well, they are. I recently read a press release that they announced the other day that they are changing their search engine service to Beta, and are launching a site that includes lots of the most popularly used searches online, like Google for instance. This multi search engine is Radiux. The nice thing about this type of search engine is that you can go here for all of your search needs. How nice is that?! I really thought that was pretty neat. It's such a convenient tool for those who are wanting or needing to search the internet. If you're interested, learn more about Radiux and their Ultimate Yellow Pages on their site today.

Moist Basement

With all this rain today, our basement seems to be a little moist. Like, when you walk down there you can really smell the moisture and feel the humidity. We now have two dehumidifiers running, so hopefully that will help because it's something that was really beginning to bother both Scott and I.

Almost September

Can you believe it's already the middle of August already!?! It's so seems like summer just began! I was looking at the calendar the other day, figuring out when all my doctor's appointments are, and couldn't believe that we're already over half way through the month. Our baby is due in October, and I think that time will just fly by! Our little one will be here before we know it!

Mosquito Bites

Scott fell asleep last night on the couch while he was watching football, while I was back in our office doing some work on the computer. When he woke up he noticed that his feet and ankles were itching quite a bit...he looked down and it appeared that a mosquito had gotten trapped under the blanket he was using and bit him about 7 or 8 times between his two legs. I felt bad for him...he was pretty miserable until the Caladryl began to work.

Down to CF

My parents were able to go down and see my younger brother this weekend in CF. They were looking forward to getting to spend some time with him and his girlfriend it's been a while since they were able to do that. They also took down a bed for his girlfriend, as she is moving down to her new place for school soon. I hope they have a great time...even though this weather isn't so great.


All women out there...have you ever heard of WomanSavers? If not, you may be interested in learning what they're all about. They are the leader when it comes to rating men.

Rush Hour 3

Scott has been wanting to see the new Rush Hour 3 movie for the past week, and today might be a good day to do the weather isn't going to permit us to do much else outside of the house. We decided that we'll go to a matiné it's cheaper and earlier in the day so we still have this evening to get some things done. Hopefully we'll get ready in time to make I'm not sure how long it will take Scott to prime the bedroom downstairs.

More Painting

Since it's so rainy today, Scott decided that he'd get started on some of the work he needs to do downstairs. He's going to start by priming the finished bedroom down it is half yellow and half burgandy. Not really our taste to say the least, so we are going to prime over it and get it painted a more neutral tan color. Should look really nice when it's done. I feel bad that I can't help him, but I'm sure that he'll do a great job.


I don't know if you've ever thought of this before, but did you know that summer time is the best time for retailers who sell refrigerators?! I guess I never thought about it before either really, but it makes sense. In the summer time the temperatures are usually pretty hot....this causes your refrigerator to run and work harder, and can ultimately cause them to have more problems during these months especially. It's kind of the same with air conditioners. If you're in this situation this summer, and looking for a fridge or some other high priced item like Frigidaire Dishwashers or something, you should definitely use Krillion to help you out. They are a localization engine that surfs the web to find you local results of where you can find the items you're looking for. This makes it very easy for you to find what you're looking for and go and buy it within the same day. No more waiting! Doesn't that sound great?! Check them out next time you need help finding something.

Coolest Part of Pregnancy

Pregnancy has been a lot of fun the baby has been moving around like crazy!!:) It's neat to see him/her moving and actually rolling around. Scott likes to see and feel the baby moving as well...he thinks it's so neat and asks me to explain to him what it feels like all the time.:) My parents were even able to feel the baby moving yesterday, which they thought was pretty cool!!

Gloomy Weather

Today is kind of a gloomy day. I woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of thunder crashing and bright lightening streaking across the sky. I finally got back to sleep, but when I woke up this morning all I could hear was pouring rain. It's one of those days when it's nice just to be inside and get things done around the house. Hopefully this lets up by tomorrow though...Scott and I may be going boating. That should be fun!!

Gift Baskets

I've said this before and I'll say it again, I think gift baskets are one of the best gifts you can give someone, especially holiday gift baskets. It seems that there is a gift basket that can be given on every occasion that you may be celebrating and I think that's great. One type of gift basket that I've never given, or received, but think would be really neat is a Gourmet Gift Basket. Doesn't that sound neat?!! In these gift baskets you will find the best of gourmet food..yum! I also think that baby gift baskets are really neat, as well as housewarming gift I said, there's a gift basket for every occasion. If you are interested in putting together a gift basket for someone special, you should check out Gift baskets by Gourmet Gift Baskets. You can shop on their site and find the perfect gift basket for the person you're giving it to. You'll be amazed at all they have to offer...I sure was!!

Date Night

A while back, Scott and I saw the movie Premonition. We really enjoyed it, as it's one of those movies that kept us on the edge of our seats and wondering what will happen next. We were excited when it came out on video, but never really rented it. Scott knew that I was wanting to see it again sometime, and he came home early from work a night this past week having rented it. We had a fun "date night". He's so thoughtful.:)


I had my 30 week appointment this past week and it is really weird how fast this pregnancy is going! Today I had to set up my appointments for the next ten weeks...this baby will be here before we know it and I can't wait!:) It's so fun to go and hear the heartbeat every couple of weeks. At first I didn't know if I'd enjoy going this often, but I really am not minding it at all.

Stock Options

Have you ever heard of PowerOptions before? They offer educational materials and free customer support for those who are interested in investing with stock options . PowerOptions also provides SmartSearchXL, a great technology that can't be found anywhere else. It helps users to find, compare and analyze as well as make money!! What a convenient way to sort and analyze stocks and option online. I really thought this product was quite amazing the more I read about it. If you'd like to learn more about PowerOptions or SmartSearchXL, check out their site today and see if it's something you'd be interested in using.

Our House

Now that Scott and I finally have our own's so fun to talk about future potential and all that we'd like to do with it someday. We definitely know that we can't do much of it right now...but we feel that's part of the fun in having our own be able to make plans for the future. There's a wall that we'd like to put in up stairs, a bathroom we'd like to finish downstairs and then basically just carpet and make the basement more of a livable space someday. It's so excited to envision all of that. We're so blessed to have such a great place to live.

Being Pregnant

Pregnancy has sure been a lot of fun the baby has been moving around like crazy!!:) It's neat to see him/her moving and actually rolling around. Scott likes to see and feel the baby moving as well...he thinks it's so neat and asks me to explain to him what it feels like all the time.:) When you think about's pretty amazing that there's a baby inside growing and moving around all the time. I think it's such an awesome time, and the best experience in the world!

As I recently posted, we had some repairs to do on one of our cars that got stuck in water. Car repairs are never fun, but they're a part of owning a car...a necessity in today's world. One of the hardest things about car repairs is finding somewhere to buy the parts for a reasonable price. One place that I found worth looking into if a radiator ever needs replacing, is They are a great source for automotive radiators, having over 80,000 parts in their inventory, for instance an Accord Radiator. They have a wide selection of Honda radiators available, but also offer a full service website for it's users. Here you will find really great articles, as well as a way to connect with an installation center if you like. I definitely recommend the next time you are in the market for a radiator. See what you think.

Scott's Birthday

Scott's birthday is coming up very quickly, and will be here before we know it. Even though August is a busy month for most people, I'm glad that we already have plans a couple nights that weekend to see his side of the family as well as mine. That always makes a birthday more special when you can spend time with your family. I know Scott is pretty excited about that too.

Grand Am Hubcaps

About a month ago we were driving in a storm and our car stalled when we drove through some very deep water. I know, I're not supposed to dry through deep water. But, it was raining very hard and was difficult to see ahead of us. So before we even could do anything, or knew that we were about to enter water, we were stuck and the car died. Thankfully it wasn't a huge deal as far as car repairs go, but the front two hubcaps broke and only half of it is still on each front tire. My husband would really like to get two front hubcaps, as he says he feels silly driving it that way. He even told me that he wants them so bad that he'd be happy if that's what I got him for his birthday.:) I guess we better start looking, hopefully there's something out there.

Wedding Planning

Having planned a wedding within the past three years, some of the details and things are still pretty fresh in my mind. Planning a wedding is a very time-consuming and overwhelming task. It can be fun, but quite stressful at times too. Thankfully we had my mom and dad helping us with all the plans, so at least there was more than just the two of us trying to figure everything out. What really would have been nice is to have taken advantage of This is a great site for those who are planning weddings because it it's a wedding-planning site. It's free and offers planning tools, photos, advice, a vendor guide, registry options and so much more! Take some of the stress out of planning a wedding, and look into today.

Life of a Homeowner

Even though we are moved into our new home and pretty well settled, it seems that there are still a lot of odd little jobs that need to be done...many of which I can not do being pregnant. A lot of the jobs are cleaning light fixtures, painting the basement, trimming bushes...basically all jobs that Scott needs to do. I feel bad for him, because he works all week and then has all this to do on the weekends, but I guess that's the life of a homeowner. There is always things to do and Scott and I help until all the work is done.

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of Electronic Disclosures before...but I know I hadn't until I recently came across some information on them. eDisclosures are actually pretty neat and seem to be a very good think for different businesses, especially those in the banking industry. Having just gone through a closing on the house we recently bought, I know how much paperwork there is!! WOW! I'm sure many of you know just what I'm talking about. Well, with eMortgage and eDsiclosures, everything is converted to a format on the computer so we are not wasting as much paper! Isn't that a smart idea?! I really found this to be quite intriguing. If you'd like to learn more about this you can check their site out for more information.

God is Good!

Throughout the past year or so, we've had lots of changes happening in our lives. My husband and I were living in the city where we graduated college from just about 7 months ago...I was teaching and he was selling cell phones as he looked for a job. Sometimes finding that first job when you get out of school is not easy, so, we began to pray about it over that year long search. Scott thought he knew what job he wanted, but we were both trying to stay open to what God had in store for us, even if it wasn't a job in the industry we first thought was best. As we waited and prayed throughout that year, God taught us patience and peace. We learned what it truly meant to Trust in Him with all our hearts! Our Faith grew so much through that experience, and it turns out that just about 7 months ago Scott got a wonderful job where we were able to move and be closer to family...something that is very important to us. Just after the move we found out we were pregnant...which was a wonderful surprise!!:) What a blessing and a miracle a baby is from God. He is good! Finally, the third big change in our lives recently happened, as we finally found a place of our own to live. We had been house hunting for months, and finally found the house of our dreams that offered everything we were looking for..and one that we felt lead to look into further. Here again, we put our Faith and trust in God and let Him direct us in the path that He had for us. We couldn't be happier and the whole home buying experience went so smoothly!! I guess through all of the changes we've experienced over the past year, we've learned more than ever that God is in control and if we seek Him with an open heart, and a positive attitude, things will work out the way they're supposed to. Afterall, He is all-knowing and wants the very best for us! The verse that I really found comforting through all of this is that from Proverbs 3:6-In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path! We feel so blessed and couldn't be happier! Scott is really enjoying his job, we get to meet our little one in a couple of months, and we are absolutely loving our new home! God is so faithful and continues to bless us each day! He is good!! :)

Brownsville personal injury attorney

Have you ever heard of O'Hanlon, McCollom and Demerath? If so, then you know that they are superior in legally representing accident injury victims in the Rio Grande Valley area, and Starr, Hidalgo, Willacy and Cameron County areas, and practice many kinds of law. They've been around since 1994, so a pretty experienced bunch if you ask me?! Their client service is outstanding. They even offer consultations for free! They seem to be a law firm that makes it easy for clients to approach them. In fact, they will even meet with you in a place that's local for you and a time that suits your schedule best. Learn more about what a brownsville personal injury attorney can do for you, by visiting their website today.

Rug Shopping

Last night Scott and I decided to go to a town that's about 20 minutes away because they have a lot of shopping places available...places that the town we live in does not offer. We went there looking for some kind of an area rug for our living room. We didn't find one at Kohl's, but ended up going to Target and were very pleased to find the perfect match!! We brought it home and it fits perfecting in our living room...not to mention that the colors are perfect!! We're very exciting about it.

Doctor Visits

Now that my due date is getting closer and closer, I find myself going to the doctor and more often. I'm not set to go every two weeks, which makes time just fly by!! It's nice though...that way I get to hear our baby's heartbeat more often and talk with my doctor about all that's going on. It's not too bad going to the doctor that often when there's one only minutes away like there is for me. I couldn't imagine having to drive a long ways now that these appointments are getting so close together.

Online Yellow Pages

Many of the yellow page services out there allow just about anybody to use them. That's why Colizer Inc. says, is different. To use their Online Yellow Pages they require that businesses give their valid US phone number. This will insure that it's being used for the right reasons, and not being misused or simply trying to direct traffic to personal websites. Another thing I liked about is that information is constantly watched and being updated so that it is not inaccurate for the users. I think this is something that businesses who use Radiux will really appreciate. If you'd like to learn more about and their list of over 14 million US businesses, check out their site today.

Feeling Like Home

The new house is beginning to feel like a home. When we first moved in there was much to do. Scott, his sister and mom did some much needed painting around the place, while I took time to clean and get things put away. After my parents were here the past couple of weekends, things really got done and now we are truly feeling like this is our home. It's such a great feeling to be moved in and settled!

PSP Converter Reviews

I'm sure there are many of you out there who have heard of PSP Converter Reviews, a great website that I recently found. They offer a lot of information on converting and copying from your PSP program. For instance, you can convert videos so that they're usable on your PSP...isn't that cool?!? I thought this was pretty neat. My brother is a huge PSP fan, so I'm definitely going to have to share this site with him. A PSP Video Converter will work with formats that I'm sure your familiar with. Translation of different file types is really easy. These include AVI, MP4, MPG, RM, and so many more. Learn more on their site today and see what you think.

I can't wait!!

As October nears, I'm getting more and more excited to be a mom! I can't believe how quickly the months go by...just over 7 months ago already we were finding out that we were pregnant. Now in a couple of months we will have our little one in our arms. I just think the whole thing is such a miracle and blessing!!

Conserving Energy

While browsing the web recently, I came across a great site about energy conservation and reducing carbon footprints. The reason I why I was intrigued by a site like this, is because I've been thinking a lot more about energy conservation ever since my husband and I bought our new house a couple weeks ago. It's so important to conserve energy every way that we can, and some companies are seeing that too. There's actually been a change in businesses when it comes to this subject. For instance, a Dallas based Air Conditioning and Appliance Repair Company is now trying to make homes more energy efficient. I think this is great...especially since I now see the importance of this owning my own home. If you're interested in learning more about this company, A #1 Air Conditioning, check them out today. They have a wealth of information on the topic, as well as ways for you to contact them. I am being paid for this post.

Working Online

Today I have so much to do, but can't seem to pry myself away from the computer long enough to do any of it! It seems that some days i don't have much work to do online, and other days I have tons to do. Unfortunately this usually ends up being on the days when i need to get some cleaning done and lots of laundry. Oh well, there's always tomorrow to get some of that done too I guess.:)

I love Jewelry!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE jewelry!! It doesn't matter if it's rings, necklaces, or is something I always enjoy looking at and getting too!:) My husband loves buying jewelry just as much as I love wearing that's something that he has gotten me a lot of over the years and he's very good at picking out things that I really like. Recently he was discussing my wedding ring with me...and at some point said that he'd like to add another band onto it. Maybe for an anniversary one year or something. I thought that was pretty sweet of him to think of. Also, since we're expecting our first baby in October, he'd love to get me one of those mother and child necklaces sometime too. He's so thoughtful!!

Engagement Announcements

Having gotten married just over two years ago, all of the planning and details are still fairly fresh in my head. Getting engaged and planning a wedding is one of the hardest, most time consuming things I've ever had to do. Getting engagement is one of the most exciting times in a person's means that you now get to officially start planning for the biggest day of your entire life...your wedding!! One of the things that we did when we got engaged was send out engagement announcements to let everyone know the great news and to include them in our celebration of being engaged. It was such a fun time...although of the most enjoyable moments of my entire life thus far!

Air Jordan Shoes

I don't know about you, but when I was in high school...the shoe that everyone had to have was the Air Jordan's. Air Jordan shoes have been a popular trend for as long as I can remember, and they still continue to be a shoe that many people enjoy to wear. My husband absolutely LOVES these shoes, and would really like to get a pair for when he plays basketball. He goes on and on about how comfortable they are and how much he misses the old pair that he used to have...but grew out of. Maybe this would make a good birthday gift for him at the end of this there's an idea!!

Busy Weekend

Wow, what a fun filled and busy weekend we had this weekend. On Friday Scott and I went to get our groceries...which usually takes us quite a while to get them and get everything put away. Then Saturday, I had a bridal shower in the morning, and the golf tournament in the afternoon. My mom and I rode around taking pictures and enjoying the day, while my dad and Scott golfed. Then, my parents stayed the night and helped us continue to get settled by cleaning and dad helping Scott put in our new front door!! It looks so nice..what a difference a door can make!

Credit Cards

Over the years I've had lots and lots of mail come to me trying to get me to apply for one credit card or another. To be honest, when I was younger I had no clue what to look for in a credit card, or which would be best for me and my situation. Now with time and more experience with credit cards, I know how important it is to search and compare credit cards before you apply. There are just so many factors to consider, and so many different Credit Cards to choose from. is here to help you if you're in this situation of looking for the right credit card. They make it easy for you to search, compare and apply all in one place. Doesn't that sound nice?!! You'll find all kinds of cards, by all sorts of issuers. Check out their site to learn more.

Golf Tournament

Well, the weekend is almost here...and that means Golf is on the minds of many in my husbands family today. Their annual golf tournament is tomorrow...and my parents are coming up for it too. It's always such a great time...people getting to golf and then having a great meal together. I always look forward to it...even though I'm not much of a golfer. I think my mom and I will enjoy driving around a golf cart and watching everyone.

What a good feeling

I still can't believe that we're finally moved into our new home. It's just such a surreal feeling to be moved into a home that we own! After renting for years and years, it's such a great feeling.:) We're so excited to be in our house and do the things to it that we want to over the years. I've been working on little things here in there over the past week...and it really feels like a home now! My mom and dad helped us out so much...with electrical stuff, painting and decorating...that really helped this place go from a house to a home in no time.:)

Are you looking for an Innovative Tutor to help your child make academic progress in the subjects he/she struggles with in school? If so, then you should look into Score Learning Centers. Score is a great program from children ages 4-14, because it helps children make progress in an environment that is fun and meaningful to them. In my opinion, that is the best kind of learning environment, and that is why I am going to look into this for my own children in the future. Take a look and see what you think. This is a paid post.


Well, I was watching the weather this afternoon and it appears as though it is supposed to storm quite a bit tonight and tomorrow. I hope that it lets up by saturday though, because I know that we're all looking forward to the golf outing on that afternoon. We could use some rain, but hopefully not too much.

Maternity Top

Being pregnant I find one of the hardest things is finding maternity clothes that I like. I mean, there's all kinds out there, but some are more of a one-size fits all, making them rather boxy and baggy... and I would rather have the more shapely and cute clothes...kind of like I used to wear before I got pregnant. I was pretty excited when I learned about Kiki's Fashions and all the cute maternity clothes they offer. Just looking at their clothes you can see that they have stylish clothing, especially for people in their 20's like me. They're so cute and I'm so excited because I got one of their shirts in the mail yesterday and can't wait to wear it. It's so cute!! I was needing something a little longer since my belly is growly pretty fast, but still wanted something shapely and one that tied in the back to help it fit to my body type. This shirt does just that. It's really exciting to find a site like this. I definitely am going to keep their site bookmarked on my computer and plan on shopping with them again soon! If you're pregnant and looking for cute stylish clothes, you should definitely check out Kiki's Fashions!! Trust me...they have something for everyone.

7 months pregnant

I've noticed that as each month passes with pregnancy, it's a bit harder to get around like I used to. Now that I'm well into my 7 month of pregnancy, my belly is really sticking out there and I find that my balance is a little off and that it takes me just a little longer to get from point A to point B. It even takes me longer to get out of bed or off the couch. It's amazing the changes your body goes through in the short 9 months that you are pregnant. Although uncomfortable at times, it's such a neat experience!

Are you into playing PC games? If so, then you should check out the PC game, starcraft : Brood War as well as StarCraft 2, the game that's coming out very soon. I have never played these games, but from the looks of it is something I would really enjoy. You can learn more about these fun PC games by checking out, which is a great StarCraft fansite. Check it out, it's really a neat site. This is a paid post.

Annual Golf Outing

Scott is getting pretty excited for this weekend, as it is the annual golf outing for his mom's side of the family. They do it every year in August, and everyone has such a great time. Being quite pregnant, this year I do not plan on golfing, but probably riding around on the golf cart with my mom and taking pics of Scott and my dad golfing. It should still be a great time. They're such a fun family, and always so kind to invite my family as well.

Hotel Reservations

It's been a while since my hubby and I have been able to take a vacation...but when we do plan vacations it can be quite stressful and overwhelming at times. I mean, I absolutely love going on trips and planning them can be fun, but it's just making sure that everything is booked and taken care of...that's the stressful part. It can take hours and hours, and days and days to get motels booked, airplane tickets figured out, as well as other things like attractions and things that we'll do on the vacation, planned and organized. Before the internet was widely used and accessible, I remember my mom sitting up until all hours in the night looking through her hotel reservation books and calling resorts, motels, and hotels trying to find the nicest place to stay that fit into our budget for our great family vacations. Now with the internet it's much easier, if you know where to go to find the best deals it's simple and actually quite fun. One place that I really like is Hotel Reservations. They are the perfect source for all of your needs when planning a vacation. They make it easy to compare prices of motels and find the one that suits your budget and needs the best. They also offer outstanding discounts on worldwide travel as you're not limited in using this great site. I especially like how easy this site is to use! It's laid out very nice and user friendly and easy to navigate. That makes planning a vacation much less time consuming and less stressful. I actually have fun going on Hotel Reservations and utilizing their great website, and I know you will too. The next time you plan to travel, check out Hotel won't be sorry. This is a paid post.


After my parents were here this past weekend...I asked them if they could leave Zoe, their dog, for the week to keep me company.:) I love dogsitting Zoe. She's so good and is really great company. She seems to be getting more and more comfortable with our new house which is nice too. My parents will be back up this weekend to get here, as we have a golf outting with Scott's family to attend. :)

Math Tutors

Have you ever heard of Score Learning Centers before? If not, and you have children who could use some additional help in different subject areas, then you should check them out. They are a great resource for those who are looking for Math Tutors, as they help children in a one-on-one environment...making learning fun and meaningful! This is very important in my opinion and is something I would like for my own children as well. Please check them out if you're in search of a good math tutor...they may be just who you've been looking for. This is a paid post.

Terrible Humidity

It has been SOOO humid lately! It has been kind of gloomy and rainy lately, and the humidity has just been terrible. Our air runs off and on throughout the day, but the humidity is so heavy that I can feel it throughout the house, even when the air runs!! It's so thick doesn't even make it enjoyable to be out there. I'd almost rather it be dry heat or cooler outside. Hopefully the weatherman gives us some good news on the forecast for the week.

Colon Cleanse

I recently learned how important it is to have a clean colon. Colon cleansing is actually one of the best things you can do to ensure that you keep your good health. I never knew this before just recently, but it really does make sense. Your digestive system is responsible for 70% of your immune system!! Now that's a lot. So, if you're needing a colon cleanse, you may be experiencing things like constipation, bloating, IBS, and many other things. Check into colon cleansing for yourself and see if it's something you think you should be doing.

Home Theaters

Now that my husband and I moved into our new home...we have been talking about all the fun things we can do with our basement, as it is mostly unfinished. I know my husband would like to take one of the bigger rooms down there and make it into some sort of a home theater area. He just loves all that electronic stuff...and would have a blast putting something like that together in our home. He even thinks it would be cool to have home theater seating. I think that would be pretty neat as well. We'll have to see, but it's an idea that we can kick around.


It's been quite some time since my husband and I went to a concert. I think it's just because we've been so busy with him beginning a new job this year, finding out we're expecting our first baby in a couple of months, and buying our first home. Lots of things have been going on, making it very difficult to find time to get away. Not only that, but money sometimes does not allow us to take time to do fun things like go to concerts. Next time we do decide to go to a concert though, I am going to look for concert tickets online. I'm sure we can find much better prices and it's much less time consuming to do it that way.

Everything Looks Great

It was such a busy weekend, but we had a great time. Scott's mom and sister came to help us paint and get things situated before we moved in our big furniture into our new home. His dad came on Friday and helped him move everything over. Then my parents were here saturday-monday to help us get things organized and put in the right place. It was so nice to have all the help...everything looks great!

Had you heard the great news about Capella University? Well, besides the fact that they are a growing accredited online university that is. The great news is that Capella University has recently added a new Bachelor of Science in Public Safety program, and eight new graduate and undergraduate specialization. The are psychology, education, information, technology, business and criminal justice! That gives potential students a lot to choose from, which I think is terrific! If you're interested in Capella and e-learning, check out their site today and find out how to enroll for summer classes. You can also check out the other many features and options they offer on their site.

New House

I'm really excited that our closing is all finished and the house is finally ours!!:) We're slowly moving things in at night, and during the day I am over there some unpacking some boxes. I really feel like I got quite a bit done today, which is a great feeling. I'm going back over there tonight so that we continue to get things accomplished.
