GO COLTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE: I wipe the tear that is rolling down my cheek.... my Colts lost in OT!!! Come could Peyton let them lose like that!!!, I could care less about the rest of the playoffs....but I will say this-- the San Diego Chargers Suck-- and do not deserve to be going any farther (ok, ok...I am being a bitter, bitter Colts fan right now)

The boys will be coming home tomorrow evening; after a 10 day visit with their dad. We have had an enjoyable, relaxing, "quiet" (except that we have a 3 year old running around yapping) time, but I am SOOO ready for the boys to be back home!!! I miss them being around and miss them being here to keep Angie busy/occupied/out of my hair...come on, it's not bad to say that...right??

Anyway, Joe and I have been making the most of the time.... getting stuff done around the house that is easier to do when I don't have 4 children at my feet calling mommy every 20 seconds (and yes, we have counted the intervals in between each calling of mommy) and getting some time out just him and I (wow, it must really sound like I am a bad parent...but really, I.AM.NOT.... I love my children dearly....just making lemonade out of the lemons life has handed me....right?).

Last night we went out to dinner and then bowling with some friends. And tonight....well, tonight we are going to cheer on my INDIANAPOLIS COLTS!!! Woo Hoo....after a dull start of the season, my boys have made an awesome comeback (thanks to the league MVP - Peyton Manning) and are playing in their firs playoff game tonight!! So, unless you are from Baltimore (Carol...) and despise the Indianapolis Colts (you all know they came from Baltimore), then please take some time to root them on!!! You know, Tony Dungy may retire after this season, so another Super Bowl ring would be a G-R-E-A-T retirement gift!! GO COLTS!!!
Beat those Chargers!!!! On our road to the Super Bowl again......... :)

I think it's wonderful that you've been able to get so much done and spend quality time with your husband while the boys have been gone. I mean, you can't wallow in self pity, right? Bet the seperation also makes them more dear to you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I've missed visiting!

I love how everyone is in matching gear! Dressing up in our fave Packer gear (we're from Wisconsin) is so much fun.

My friend's BF is from Indianapolis and a diehard Colts fan. He's been wearing his blues for days.

happy new year!

Sorry about the Colts but glad you were able to enjoy your time. I think it is wonderful that you have the family arrangement that you feel good about and can relax and enjoy it. It ends up being good for everyone. Even the little one got some extra attention! Great post...sorry the colts disappointed!

I've lived in San Diego county since I was 9. I'm sorry I cannot grieve with you.

Uniforms! Such a controversial issue nowadays, for wholesale electronics more and more schools force their students to wear uniforms every day. When seeing a sea of students all china wholesale with tiring expressions and exactly the same clothes, I can’t help but china electronics wholesale ask, is uniform really a sign of unification as its name suggests? What wholesale do students truly benefit from this “compulsory sense of unity”? It’s indisputable wholesale that middle school students are experiencing the most fascinating period of life, a time china wholesale when the consciousness of beauty should have been promoted. What they really want is a stage to display their individuality and to demonstrate their unique existence, but not to be treated like machinery which was brought about by institutionalization. It’s their unalienable right to choose what to wear and realize their own values within effective guidance, but not to be misled to a wrong conception that being even a little bit different from others is uneasy.Secondly, wearing the same uniform curtails the freedom of these young people.
