I think I jinxed myself. My last post was about how bored I was at work. Since then, I have been SO busy! As most of you know, I am the communications director at the American Cancer Society. My job consists of writing press releases, pitching story ideas to the media, securing media sponsorships and a basketful of other things that I don't care to go into detail about.

When I get home at night and on the weekends, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of the computer and write something. My creative wheels have been spent. Not to say that events haven't happened over the past few months that have made me think, "I need to blog about this!" Several things have happened. Here is a quick, non-creative run-down:
  • We spent a weekend in January with 12 close friends at a cabin near Branson. We were suppose to go to Arkansas but they had no power due to the ice storm. Not willing to cancel our highly anticipated weekend, we came up with a Plan B and secured a really neat spot in Blue Eye.
  • I joined a bookclub.
  • Our good friends, Jason & Katie are getting married in November. Katie and I have been dress shopping twice and found the perfect dress for her. She is going to look so pretty! Added bonus...I get to be in the wedding!
  • Speaking of Jason & Katie - we went to their engagement party on Saturday.
  • We painted our bathroom green and brown.
  • We started the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University bible study. Since then we have paid off my car and will have Nick's paid off in May.
  • Nick is crazy deep in March Madness. It's pretty bad. When I complained about the constant basketball on our tv he said, "Just let me have my March Madness." I am ready for baseball so I can see my lovely Pujols in his baseball pants.
  • Eastan beat Halo 1. He is pretty excited about it.
  • Almost forgot a big one! We are on a co-ed softball team. Much more about that later!
  • Eastan made it to his last quarter of 4th grade alive!
  • Jax is having surgery on Friday. Two lypomas (I don't think I spelled that right) are being removed.

Stay tuned for more blogging...I haven't given it up. Just took a little hiatus.

You're baaaaaaack!! I know you are busy (as all young people are), so it is really a treat for us when you find time to post on this blog. Even though we live less than a mile apart, I don't know what's going on with your family, and it's great to read about it. That way, I can't interrupt you while you're talking! ha ha ha ha
