It's things like this that really make me smile and realize just how beautiful life can be. I can't wait until they bloom. Sunflowers are my favorite. =)

I got out of my car at work, after lunch, and was walking through the snow/ice mounds between the curb and sidewalk. I was wearing quite slippery boots, so I was trying to step carefully and lightly punch footprints into the icy snow to keep my foot stable while taking my next step. I took another step on the snow and it felt like my heel was sinking into the mud underneath. I managed to get my foot on the curb instead and my heel went all the way down to the concrete... and I went, "What the...?!" Then it hit me, I looked behind me and there was the heel of my boot laying in the dirty snow!
I had to use packing tape for a quick fix so that I could walk and look (more) like a normal person (than without a heel).
The heel has been loose in the past, but never anything a little super glue coudn't fix. These were my favorite boots, but I think it's time to call them dead. I guess this is what I get for buying boots from a shop in the mall with a bunch of cheap, hokey stuff.
Well, at least I have a reason to buy another pair of shoes. Excuse me...
"Honey, ba-bay needs new boots..."

So, now I'll explain my "lyrics".
Ryn needed to see a doctor today, so Stu took the car. That alone was pretty cool, I got all excited about my honey-pie picking me up from work. Dunno why, guess I'm in love or something. So, Stu took Ryn to the doctor (she's been running a fever for a couple days). Turns out she's got the flu and received doctor's orders of no school tomorrow. Ah, to be a kid again. I just hope she gets better FAST. Her coughing and fever does worry us at times. Anyhow, I'm "sippin' on water and Airborne" (an immune system booster, that you use like Alka-seltzer) in the hopes that I don't come down with this sickness.
We got the grapefruit flavor, which I think was brought to my attention by Stu because the box was pink. Without fail, I gravitate towards all things pink with squeels of delight on any visit to any store and sometimes express my desire to acquire them for my own amusement... even if it's a rubber spatula. Yes, that one really happened.
Stu is taking the Airborne too... he thinks it's gross, I like the bubbles-- What can I say? Simple things please simple minds (like mine).
Now, for the "With my mind on my vids and my vids on my mind."
I finally figured out how to share Ashley's baby shower video!!! I have to change the file format, then chop it into little pieces with an editing program, then save it under another format, then it's ready for youtube.com! Not too hard, but by golly it was frustrating trying to figure out a way!
[Edited] I have now uploaded all four segments of Ashley's baby shower. The fourth, and last, segment is below. It's my favorite and it's the shortest, it's only about three and a half minutes. You can see all the segments by visiting http://youtube.com/user/lilmizzc00kie.
She got Baby Gap, can you believe it?!?! In the words of Napoleon Dynamite-- "Lucky!" (I actually don't really care about name brands, but I WILL take advantage of an opportunity to quote the nerd that everyone loves.)
From 2:03 to 2:20 is my favorite moment!
The Hobbit on CDs narrated by Rob Inglis. Definitely recommend this version, Rob is an amazing narrator.
The Hobbit audio book in my portable DVD player and of course, my crochet.
I love books, but I can't knit or crochet while reading a book and given the choice, I usually choose the yarn. I'm really glad it occured to me that this could be a very wonderful compromise. The library is a very blessed thing when it comes to audio books. I just wish they had more variety. I know, I know, free entertainment alone should be good enough, but I'm finicky. How do you think I ended up with the best fiance in the world?! =)
Until next time...

Ryn loves the baby too!
I took about half an hour's worth of video of Ashley opening gifts. Yeah, youtube.com only let's you upload 10 minutes of video. Crap! So, as soon as I figure out how to share it, I will.
After the baby shower, Ryn and I had a Mommy/Daughter date and went shopping...
The new Korn CD (for Stu) - Garbage CD (for me) - 2 cell phone covers (for Ryn, left) - Mango Mandarin *yummy* Body Cream from Bath & Body Works (for me) - a pink gemstone, star shaped naval barbell (for me) - a dark red cell phone cover w/ red flames (for Stu) - a butterfly/sunflower cell phone cover (for me, far right).

DISCLAMIER: AFTER BEING HYPNOTIZED BY SEVERAL GARBAGE MUSIC VIDEOS UNTIL 1:00(ISH) A.M., WRITER IS POSTING THIS ENTRY UNDER VERY TIRED CONDITIONS AND CANNOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR SPELLING ERRORS, POOR GRAMMER, RUN ON SENTENCES, GENERAL BLABBERING OR INCORRECT STATEMENTS. =P
I just read an "update e-mail" from my dear friend Sue, in California. Her and her family seem to be doing very well and that pleases me. I miss her. Hopefully both our tribes can meet, hang out and be groovy someday.
We have also set a date to be married, July 5th, 2009!
Okay, turn the page...
pAGE...ACK! What was that?!?! It's really the keyboard, not me forgetting to take off the caps lock from doing something else. =P
Ryn also threw a surprise birthday party for Stu the Sunday before his birthday. Her and the neighbor did most the work decorating, picking up the cake and it was Ryn's idea. I bought a few things and would've helped more, but I was the one who had to get him out of the house. He said it was his first surprise party ever... that made me happy.
Stu is doing fantastic with all this! I think it's been a bit more rough for him, but he's handling it all so very gracefully. And I can't even begin to tell you how unbelievably supportive he's been to me amidst his own struggle with it all. All I can say is that I'm so blessed to have such a strong and supportive partner!
Page... what is it?... like 62? I dunno, feels like I've been typing for days.
