For those of you who know Rachel and I very well, you have probably heard many a dog chasing stories. It seems as though I chase dogs (not storms) quite often. In fact I did so the other day in the rain and pea-sized hail. That was not cool. Someday I will get a chance to share these fun stories with you – like the time we put socks on her and her paws were swollen to the size of my feet. Or the time I swore she swallowed a tube of aspirin – or even better – my wife’s wedding ring.
In these great adventures of coming home to find the dog has pulled her tether from the yard and is no where to be found back there – I go on quite the quest hunting for her. If I had one of these I wouldn’t have to look for the fat beagle pulling a 20ft tether with branches, lawn furniture and small children behind her.
I am thinking MOTHER’S DAY PRESENT!
You probably heard about this but if not…Nicholas White was trapped in an elevator in New York City’s McGraw-Hill building for forty-one hours. This is a condensed look at White’s ordeal, as captured by the building’s security cameras. I would probably die after 6. I am going to use the stairs.
I am pretty pumped about this series. Here is a little more (in case you weren’t in service yesterday)…
I can’t concentrate on the homework I have to get done. Mainly because my motivation this semester is slowly slipping. For those that don’t know – I decided to go back to school last year to get another degree – this one in graphic design. The main motivation for this is to gain more experience on the programs I am already familiar with but want to become an expert in them – AND – I want to graduate from a state school so that I have that example for my kids…I went to Bible School (FYI).
So as I procrastinate and the clock is ticking on when my online homework is due – thought I would share some thoughts from today…
Time to get back to school!
Here they are in no particular order…
Rachel and I have been looking really hard at our budget lately and we have decided that we think it is time for us to possibly purchase a new house. We are kind of looking at our options – square footage and really making sure that it all fits within the price we think we could afford. We aren’t working with a realtor – yet – but with all of the home buying shows on TV, we think we have a pretty good direction of what we are looking at.
