Good to be back! If anyone is still reading this blog, thanks for your patience.:) Over the past few weeks a lot of things happened and I needed a break. First off, I went up to WI to be with a good friend who experienced an unimaginable tragedy. The short trip wiped me out and given the circumstances, really just made me want to be with my family and not focus on anything else for a while. So I’ve been laying low and keeping busy with the boys.
Right now we are on a mission to find a new TV. I never turn it on during the day but earlier this week I flipped on “Oprah” and it immediately turned off by itself. Turns out it’s a power switch thingy that broke and it’s too expensive to fix. Noooooo!! That stinks. Jim is on a mission to find a new tv now. I think my role will be to just remind him we can’t get the super-huge, gaudy, plasma that costs a fortune that he’s dreaming about! Lol.:) So it suddenly looks like that will be our Christmas present to each other.
We are excited about the Indians too….go TRIBE!! This has been an outstanding sports season for our family so far: GB Packers kicking butt, the Browns doing great, and now the Indians are unstoppable! The boys are just now getting the point of understanding the excitement and sitting through the long games so it’s fun to watch them too.
I guess that’s it for now. I found a video on I wanted to share but be warned it’s a total tear jerker!! It’s VERY, VERY heavy but beautiful beyond words too. There is a song by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans that makes me cry EVERY time I hear it. It’s called “New Again”. Usually if I hear a song that makes me emotional I get over it after a few times. After hearing it 5-6 times you know the story, you are prepared for the ending, and it’s easier to not cry. That’s true for every sing except this one! I ALWAYS weep when I hear this, no matter how many times it’s played. So pair it with the video and I a turn into a total crybaby with the snotty nose and ruined mascara! Be prepared for graphic images and very deep content, but also know this could change your day (and your life)!!:) http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=b00db3c2afc128dc13b7
