Completely seperate from Amy (great minds think alike?) I too started a blog.
Following my quest to figure out what I want to do with my life....

Well, I've had a lovely spring break. It all ends Monday- back to the salt mines.
I just wanted to let you guys know that it was great to have 3/5 of my family stay with me this week. Having Em and Fred, and then Stephen crash and my place was fun!
Love you guys!

Woof! Enjoyed seeing everyone last weekend. It was a beautiful day and Dad took me for a long walk at Comanche Lookout. I remember when we went there so long ago, Stephen. Lots of other dogs to look at and strange smells to sniff. Never needed the Mutt Mitt! -- Missy

Well, those of you who read my facebook status on Sunday know that I had to buy new brakes for my car. Feeling keenly how tired I am of being ignorant of all things related to cars, I spent the time while I waited for my car walking across the street to Half -Price Books and purchasing a copy of Auto Repair For Dummies. Great book, written by a woman, full of useful information. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
I started to peruse the first chapter, which reviewed things every driver needs to know. How to pop your hood, pump gas, change a tire, etc. Little did I know.....
Tonight on the way home from bible study, I was cruising down George Bush. I heard a motorcycle passing by. I kinda looked in my mirrors and didn't see anything, so I assumed he was in my blind spot. The loud motorcycle engine continued. And then it hit me.
That isn't a motorcycle.
I pulled off the highway and managed to get to a little shopping center- well lit for 10:00 at night, and right off the highway. I get out of my car and low and behold- FLAT TIRE!!!!!!
Grateful for the recent brush up on the finer points of tire changes, I emptied my trunk and got out my jack. I reach in for my spare tire.
And, of course, it too is flat.
By this time I realized that my innocent shopping center is actually home to an adult video store, biker bar, and a tattoo parlor. And I'm alone. In the lot. At night. With a flat tire and a flat spare.
Oh, and did I mention my cell phone was dead???
I look up and OH! Here comes a police officer. I'm saved! He can drive me to a nearby gas station! I wave him down, sending up a prayer of thanks.
The cop waved back. And kept driving.
Thank you Carrollton PD. I'm going to go ahead and assume that he was off to catch a rapist or murderer, and that's why he didn't stop to help me.
And so I jacked up my car, took off my tire, put it in my trunk, locked my car, and began walking to a nearby gas station. After the walk past the aforementioned adult video store, biker bar, and tattoo parlor (all the while reciting Psalm 91 over and over to myself) I arrived at 7 Eleven. I went inside, pockets full of $1 bills, dead cell phone, keys, and tire gauge, and hands full of spare tire. After waiting in line behind a man who was accused of stealing a child's bicycle, I got my quarters and walked out to the air machine thingy.
I began filling up my tire, checking the air pressure frequently. The tire said "DO NOT FILL PAST 60 PSI." For some reason I couldn't get the spare filled past 50. And then I realized that my tire gauge doesn't go past 50 psi. I still don't understand how that works. Someone explain that one to me. I managed to break my tire gauge in the process. But I just went ahead and assumed the tire was full. Probably over-full, but not much I could do about it at that point.
So I began my sojourn back to the car, past the tattoo parlor, biker bar, and adult video store, carrying my spare. I thought to myself "At least if I get attacked, I have a weapon with me." Visions of me taking a tire to the face of a would-be attacker danced in my head.
So eventually I got back to my car, finished changing my tire, and began my slow, 30 mph trip down the back roads. All the while I was praying my tire would stay on as I drove home, and saying to myself, "Someday I'll laugh about this, someday I'll laugh about this...."

So, one of the perks of Freddie's job is that sometimes the copier dealers or leasing companies will have competitions to encourage more business. Last fall Kyocera had a competition that whoever sold the most of their equipment would win a trip to Vegas. Well, my number one salesman won! Yay! But, since we went to Vegas twice last year, Freddie asked his boss if we could apply to trip amount to another destination.We wanted to take the trip during spring break, so we've spent the last few days looking up trips and deciding where to go.
Well, ironically, we found a great trip BACK to Cabo San Lucas where we spent our honeymoon! We're even staying at the same hotel! We are both very excited and I think we've been working hard and deserve this much-needed break! I'm officially counting down the days until we leave --38--!!!
Sun and surf, here we come!!!

Personally I feel that this is a wonderful idea Amy. So here, have some props:
I have heard through the grapevine that you all might me coming to see the Baylor Bears defeat the aggies, woohoo! Come one, come all!
I don't really have much to say, school and cheer keep me busy.
Thanks again to Emily and Freddie for letting Rachel and me come up last weekend, and thanks Amy for visiting.
After I just got off the phone with mom, she wanted me to post a couple of pictures.
Here's pictures of my new furniture that I bought with my Christmas Ikea gift cards:
And here's a couple of pictures of the photos that mom and dad gave us. I put them up when I got home, mom wanted to see them.
Hopefully you will all get to see it in person soon. =)
Hey guys! I'm very excited! It occurred to me lately that I wish there was a way for all of us to communicate with one another, rather than mom calling me, then me telling Em, Em telling Fred, etc, etc. I'd been toying with the idea of a family blog since I saw a friend with one, and now, here it is! I've set up a gmail account with a username and password we can share so that we can all get on and post what is going on in our lives with one another. You can add it to your RSS or whatever.
