Well somehow or another I lost my flip flops this weekend. Good thing I remembered my tennis shoes to golf in this weekend.
It was a great Sunday morning on the golf course with the men of the family. I was pretty amazed I golfed 18 holes and used the same ball the entire time. Pink ladies golf balls must be my thing.


Day one of snow skiing was successful.

Skiing lesson went well!

We went to the top of the mountain and the backside of the mountain.

I can probably count on one, maybe two hands how many times I fell down. Mike didn’t fall, not even once.

I even successfully made it down a BLUE slope.

This has been a great trip so far and we still have three days! We are both tired and trying to prevent ourselves from being sore. I don’t know if my legs have gotten this much of a workout in quite some time.
Couples getaways are the greatest.



So I seem to have a problem with misplacing things. I think this is only an occasional problem, but if you were to ask my husband he would probably tell you I do it all the time. He would also probably tell you that where he puts things down at I don’t think they always belong there, so I will move them.  Later when he comes back to find them, of course they are not there and then he has to track me down, good thing our house is not very big, to find out where I put them. This does NOT happen as much as it used too.

Recently, over the past two months our iPhone/iPad chargers have been disappearing. I told Mike that I thought they were just turning into snakes or something and slithering off. He didn’t buy it. So we made a deal: I had until he got his car back from the dealership (which was today) to find my iPhone cable if I wanted to have a charge on my phone anytime after, well today.  Last night my phone started to die, I didn’t want to ask him to use the one cord that was charging his iPad or the one that charges his iPhone (its in the bedroom and really hard to unplug).  So I decided to search for mine. Surely between the 2 iPods, iPod touch, 2 iPhones, and his iPad there had to be more than two charging cables in our entire house. The search was on.

Finally, I decided to go through some of my things that came out of my carrel and what did I find? Yes, that’s right I found 3 iPhone chargers. So now my phone will stay alive and I am responsible for my 3 cables and will leave his alone.

Hope mine don’t decided to play a game of hide ‘n’ seek again.


so you’re still together….

When you run into someone that you went to high school with and the first thing that comes out of their mouth is “I didn’t know you two were still together.” It makes me pretty irritated. Really Mike and I have been dating since a week after I turned 16 years old, October 16, 2000. Then it might make me even more irritated that people say that because we have been married for over two years, April 4, 2009. I just find it so frustrating when people say this, because they say it like they have heard all sorts of rumors about us breaking up or something. There have been no break-ups, no lets date other people, no I’m not sure anywhere in our relationship. People shouldn’t talk and spread rumors. So yes Mike and I are married and still together. Next time you see us, we will still be married and still be together and still be happy. I love Mike with all my heart and soul and have since the time that I turned 16. I know that some of these people thought that they were going to marry their high school sweet hearts and did not, well its very apparent why that didn’t work out for many of them. Relationships and marriage are based on trust, monogamy, love, and family.









But then there is a funny side to this because I can remember in junior high when my parents got a phone call early one morning from one of my parents friends. This was the Saturday morning after their 20th high school reunion started, it was their friend Danny and of course my mother answered the phone. Well instead of saying good morning to my mother he asked if Doug was there. When my dad got on the phone Danny asked my dad if that was Christy or did he have a new wife because he had heard that Friday night that my parents had gotten a divorce. NO, my parents were still married and happily married. The rumors that go around small towns that have to do with other people that unhappy people start are pretty interesting and sometimes amusing. Really though when you run into someone at the grocery store, a restaurant, really any place out in the public and they are with their spouse, don’t make it sound shocking that they are married or “still together.”

That is my rant for the day!
