Well I hope all of you had a very merry Christmas. I know that we did. Our Christmas Eve was a little eventful this year. Sunday night, I went to cook dinner for the fam and our oven wouldn't turn on. We don't know much about gas stoves, so we thought maybe it was the pilot light. We called our landlord and he said that he would be over the next day to take a look. So Monday he came over with his repair man, and we didn't have a pilot light on our stove, it was an ignitor. Apparently the stove was completely gone. It needed some parts, and there were no stores open on Christmas Eve. Our landlord decided to just get us a new stove, but he said he couldn't have one until the day after Christmas. Well, that wasn't going to work for us since we were feeding four missionaries on Christmas Day and I had already bought all the food. I was pretty upset and asked if we could just call Lowe's or Home Depot and see if we could get a stove. His repair man said that he had a truck, so they decided to go to Lowe's and buy a new stove. Needless to say, I was able to cook my Christmas meal without a hitch. It is nice to have a new stove.

Whew! With that out of the way, we had a wonderful Christmas. Emma of course recieved too many gifts, but we enjoyed her reactions. Everytime she opened a gift she would say, "Ooooooo!" I also want to say thank you to everyone who sent us gifts. Emma loved every one of them. I of course loved the gifts for the baby as well.

Speaking of the baby, right now the baby is breech so I am upset about that. I sure hope it turns it butt around one more time before he is stuck in that position. I am really trying hard not to have to have a repeat C-section, but odds are not in my favor. I will be getting a blessing here soon, so I am hoping the Lord will help things out. Whatever will be, will be I guess. I hope that you all have a safe new year. Keep in touch.

Merry Christmas!


Christmas is almost here, and I hope that everyone has had a stressfree holiday so far. Hopefully all the shopping is done, and you can sit back and enjoy a Christmas movie or two. I don't have much to write, but I wanted to at least touch base.

The past two weeks have been a little stressful. Thursday the 13th I believe, I was having some cramping. I called the doctor and they wanted me to go to the hospital to get monitored to see if I was experiencing any pre-term labor. I was there for about 3 hours, and I did end up having a bladder infection which is why I was cramping. I feel a lot better, but that same weekend Emma decided she didn't want to sleep anymore. Sunday she didn't take a nap, and then Sunday night would not go to bed either. She finally fell asleep about 2 a.m. Monday was the same way. No nap, and went to bed extremely late. Tuesday she finally gave in and took a nap, but had problems going to bed. She has finally decided to get back on schedule, and I am grateful I can get some sleep now too. I have to say it is a little unsettling waking up and having my daughter standing at the end of the bed staring at me. She has startled me so many times lately.

Today Cameron's family is having their Christmas party, and I am sad that we can't be there. The white elephant gifts are always the highlight of the party. Someone has to tell us who had the best gift.

We love all of you, and we wish you the merriest of Christmas's. Keep in touch.

Well hello again everyone. Hope everything is going well for all of you so far this month. We had our ward Christmas party Saturday, and it was fun. We had a soup cookoff (no mine didn't win) a talent show, and of course Santa Clause. Emma seemed pretty excited to see Santa, so I thought that it would be fun for her to go and sit on his lap. I wish I had a camera to capture the look of sheer terror on her face. She did not like Santa AT ALL! I have never really seen her so upset by something before. Well, I guess we can call it a bust for this year. At least Emma is enjoying the other aspects of Christmas. Candy, cookies, lights, snow, and Harry Connick Jr's Christmas cd. That is all I can ask for I guess.

I just finished typing up our Christmas letter, and for the majority of whom read this often will get one. We just got a new camera, and I am trying to figure out how to delay the camera so we can all be in the picture. It won't be hard, and I like playing around with stuff. I made sugar cookies, wafer cookies, and fudge yesterday. I felt like I was in the kitchen forever. It doesn't help either when it gets dark at 4:30 p.m. I also wrapped Christmas presents so I can get them shipped to Idaho and Arizona before the big rush hits the post office.

We did finally get our first snow. It was last Thursday, and it was fun to have for the 20 minutes it snowed. The weather is interesting here. Here is an example. On Thursday morning it was raining, then it snowed, then it rained, and then it was freezing rain. I guess freezing rain is the big ticket item here. More than snow. Michigan had a horrible ice storm this weekend, and so did part of Missouri. I need to stock up on some items such as a window scraper thingy for our car. I didn't think I would need one since we have a garage, but when I was at Enrichment it hit me that I may come out of Enrichment with my car frozen over. So that would be a good investment. I also need to get a battery powered heater for our home. I guess they had a couple of serious power outages here because of the storms last year. So I guess I should be prepared. That is the Mormons motto is it not! Ha ha.

Well enjoy the Holidays! I know that we are.

Tis' The Season

Merry Christmas! I wonder if you all heard the Christmas devotional on Sunday. Hearing the prophet speak about Christmas made me very excited for the Holiday. One of the church buildings in our area held a Creches and Carols event this last weekend. For those of you who don't know what a Creche is, it is a manger. They had a room full of porcelain Creches, a room dedicated to Modern, African, Asian, and any other manger you could think of. It was wonderful! They also had people performing in the chapel as you walked through the church. They had a children's room as well where children could make crafts. I volunteered on Friday night to be a Hostess, and greet people as they came in. It really made me excited for the holiday season. I am in the Christmas spirit, but I am having a hard time finding the energy to do the things I would like to and need to. I love to bake, and shop, and wrap, and get Christmas cards ready. I find that as the weeks go on, I have less and less energy. I need that energy though, because I keep stuffing my face with sugar cookies! Yum!

I have also decided that I think I will avoid Walmart, and the mall on the weekends. I went to Walmart on Saturday to pick a couple of things up, and I could barely get throught the doors. I couldn't believe it! I am glad that I am a stay at home mother now, so that I can go during the week to avoid crowds. I am excited about the gifts I have bought though. I hope Ashlyn, Addison, Tyler, and Janae all enjoy theirs. By the way, they will be sent soon.

The weather here is cold. I also keep forgetting to put on a coat or jacket before I leave the house. I always open the door, feel the cold air kick me in the face and then I remember. I guess I keep forgetting that I don't live in Arizona anymore. The weather has a nice briskness to it, and although it is cloudy and rainy there hasn't been any snow. I have heard though that snow here is not very common. People have told me that it maybe sticks a couple times throughout the winter season. Sunday was very cold, and it made me want to go back to Arizona.

Well, we miss all of you back in Arizona, and I hope that your Holiday season is going well also. Hopefully we might see you come summertime. Don't forget to send us Christmas cards.

Finally getting settled

Well hello again everyone,

I just thought that I would start off by saying, "I hate moving." I keep telling Cameron over and over again that I will never move again pregnant. I can't lift anything, and now that the Braxton Hicks have started, I am even more limited sometimes. Who knows when those things are going to kick in. I have also never been so tired in my life.

We arrived in St. Louis on November 13th, and it was a beautiful fall day. We had the movers come in on Wednesday, and trying to get Emma to stay out of the way was hard. We had to take shifts with who was going to tell movers where to put things, and who was going to watch Emma. We finally got everything in, and I did get Emma's room pretty much settled before we went to bed that night. Thankfully, she slept well.

Cameron's parents came the next day to help us unpack. We did get a lot done on the first day. We did get a lot done over the course of the weekend, but we also played. On Friday, we went to the St. Louis Zoo, which is free. If was very chilly that day, but I have to admit, I saw more animals in an hour than I ever have at almost any other zoo. Here is a picutre.

We also went to a place called It was really fun. I think I had just about as much fun as Emma did. Here is another picture.

Rod and Loa left really early on Monday morning. We were all sad to have them go, and I have already been homesick. Everything is going great, and I almost have everything the way that I want it just in time for the Holidays.

Thanksgiving was great! We were invited to Nick and Allison's for dinner. It was wonderful! The food was good and so was the company. I am grateful that we have such wonderful friends. I was still homesick for family, especially my own but we will hopefully see family soon. We are going to play host to the missionaries for Christmas. There are two sets of missionaries in our area, so I will have four hungry Elders. I swear they look younger and younger every time I see them. And I know that is because I get older and older as days go by. Well, we love everyone, and I will post soon.

Literally, a day in the life.....

Okay, while I am waiting for Cameron to find out about his job, I thought that I would shed some light on our oh so exciting lives. On a day to day basis, I generally have nothing to talk about. I thought that I would let you all in on how a typical day in the Owen's house operates.

8:00-8:30 a.m.-Emma generally wakes up at about this time yelling "Maaaammmaaa." Que for me to get up.

8:30-10:00 a.m.-Emma makes a mess eating her cereal, and we have now watched 1 episode of Saved By the Bell, and The Price is Right. I know, I know, we watch too much t.v. Either that, or Emma watches a Baby Einstein (which I now can't stomach anymore), all the while I have read 7 or 8 books, played with our flannel board (which Emma LOVES), or let her bounce on the bed.

10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.-This is generally the time frame that we shower and attempt to do laundry or clean, eat lunch, hose down Emma after she eats lunch, pack her bag for day care, and get out the door.

12:30-10:45 p.m.-Work, oh lovely, lovely work. Enough said.

10:45 p.m.-12:00 a.m.- Sit and relax a little, and then go to bed.

So you see, days and days go by before anything exciting happens. I am sure everyone has a life like this to some extent, and I am also sure that it starts to get on your nerves sometimes. There are days that I feel like tearing my hair out. I guess I will have a change to my routine come early March, and it will be wonderful.

I am not sure that I have said anything, but I will find out what kind of parasite I have in my stomach on the 17th of October. I am excited, and I am hoping that the baby cooperates with the doctors. I am also hoping that if it is a boy, it is very obvious. I don't want to prepare for a girl and then be surprised later on. Hey, I know people who have had that happen. Hopefully I will also be able to get some of those ultrasound pics up on the blog for you all to view.

One last thing. I just thought that I would let everyone know that I love that new t.v. show Life. It is really good. It hasn't received the best ratings, but I think you should all watch an episode and tell me what you think.

Well on a final note, I hope that you enjoy the picture of Missouri, and get used to the idea that that may be our home soon. Thanks.

Happy Fall Everyone!!!!

Well, you can't get any better weather than this! Arizona has been wonderful the past couple of days, and I can't help but think that maybe we should just stay here. It is so nice at night that we can open up our windows. Sweet relief, sweet relief. Ironically enough, the first great day was on Sunday, the first day of Fall. Now you have to remember that nice to an Arizonan, is different than what everyone else might think. It has been low 90's in the day, and low 80's at night all with a cool breeze. So that is an update on the weather, in case you wanted to know.

Cameron's job is still going well as far as we know. He will be going to St. Louis the week of the 8th. They told him that they would pay for his flight, but that he had to pay for everything else. How wierd is that? Anyways, he went to talk to his manager to see if that was protocol, and come to find out the people in St. Louis don't have much of a budget, so Cam's boss is helping him out. Maybe Cam will finally be able to use his corporate card. We will keep you updated, but it will still be a couple more weeks.

Just found out that my sister is Young Woman's President. She has sixty girls in the program. I can't imagine. I think we have 12? So she has been really busy. She also has 18 piano students as well. I really give her props for pulling all of that together. Just to give you an idea of how big of a ward, or at least how many kids are in the ward here is a breakdown: 60 young women, 125 primary kids. I think she said there were 250 kids total in the ward. Once again, can't even imagine.

Excited that the fall shows are starting this week. This is what we are watching for anyone who would like to comment (some of these are shows just for me): Heroes, The Bachelor, Journeyman, House, America's Next Top Model, Life, Ugly Betty, The Office, and Project Runway. Now that I have listed them out, I just realized that I watch a lot of tv. Oh well, my life is boring. Let me know if any of you watch these shows and what your opinions are.

Talk to you all later.

15 More Days

Only 15 more days, until I am allowed to decorate for Halloween. My husband has placed a no decoration in site rule until that time. If I had it my way, I would celebrate Fall and Halloween year round.

Cameron is on a final interview with Bank of America for the Branch Manager position. If he gets offered the job and it is the pay that we need, we will probably be moving in the next 3 weeks. I am nervous about the whole thing. Its always a challenge to move and get to know a new area. I am excited though about getting a house, and a yard, moving during the fall, and to not work ANYMORE! Nothing of course is set in stone, but we are excited about the change.

Emma has learned a few new sentences so far. She can say, "I don't want to", "I want that", and "What's that?". Along with her other favorite words, "Mine", "No", "Bye", "Shoe" and "Blankie". She is getting quite the vocabulary down, but unfortunatly some of those words weren't what we hoped for. I guess that is the way the cookie crumbles. She still can say "Thank you", although it is coming out less and less. We are working on "please" and "Yes". I am also trying to teach her Trick or Treat. She is growing up so much! I love to see her learn something new. Just today she threw a tantrum because she wanted to wear something other than what I put on her. So she tried to take those clothes off. When she didn't succeed, she tried to put on the clothes she wanted over the other ones. That was interesting to watch.

As far as my pregnancy goes, everything so far is a go. I have an appointment on the 19th again. I probably won't find out what I am having until October, but if we move, I am going to ask that he do an ultrasound before we leave. I really will miss my doctor. He is one of the best C-Section doctors in Arizona, and I am nervous to have to find a new OB. I don't get as much indegestion anymore, and my appetite has really improved. I am trying hard not to stuff whatever I see into my face. It is cooling down here, so pretty soon I will be able to walk in the mornings again.

Thanks for all the support, and we will keep you posted.

Thursday, August 30, 2007


That is all I have to say regarding the weather here in Arizona. We are expected to have temperatures in the 110's for next 2 weeks. I think that I am going to go crazy. I would almost rather have a house full of cockroaches than to be in this heat. I took Emma out for a walk today, and we were only able to be out there for 15 minutes. We came back inside, and she chugged water like there was no tommorrow. Makes me long for the winter, or to be in a different state all together.

Football season is upon us, and I have mixed feelings at this point. Cameron of course is in a Fantasy Football League, and so that is all that we will be watching on the weekends. The only thing that I do like is going to the games themselves. Cameron's brother Riley is playing on Mesa High's varsity football team, so we will be going to those games every Friday night. My Mother-In-Law went a little overboard I think. She made cheerleading costumes for all the little girls, and then shirts for all of us with Riley's number on the back. We all sit together and have signs that we wave. Could we draw anymore attention to ourselves? For any of you reading this aren't aware, Cameron has 7 brothers and sisters. Most are married and have kids. That is a big crowd right there. Oh well, at least Riley has the support. I am also excited to attend some ASU games. GO DEVILS! The Cardinals I predict will win one more game then they did last season. As much as my husband loves them, they just have no hope.

One of my other recent endeavors is starting a blog for the Class of 98'. GO DIGGERS! I know some people that graduated in 97' who started a blog for all there classmates to post pictures and update on lives, and I thought it was a great idea. My ten year reunion is in May of 2008, so not too much longer. I can't believe I am that old!

Hope you all are doing well, updates a comin'

What do you think?

Well everyone, I went to the doctor today and they couldn't find the heartbeat of the baby. K, little freaked out by that. So they took me into the ultrasound room, and everything is okay. Phew! and big sigh of relief. My doctor said that it must have been the position, but I got to see my tiny little baby squirming away and its little heart a beatin'. I am glad that so far everything looks great! My due date is March 3rd, but since I have to have a c-section I am not sure when they will schedule that. I put a poll out for you all to let me know if I will be having a boy or a girl. Let me know if you visit.

Some other news, is that Cameron's really good friend Bryon Richards lost his job at Bank of America. It was a little fishy, but Cameron had a hard time dealing with that recently. We are trying to help Bryon's family out as much as we can at this point. His wife Jeanette has been great about continuing to watch Emma. Any money helps, but it must be even more stressful.

I also wanted to say that next week will probably be my last in Primary. I love being in the Primary organization so much. I haven't heard anything from the bishopbric so far in regards to my release, or a new calling so I don't know what is going to happen. I just hope that I will still be put to work. I will let you know how that all works out.

See ya all later.

Monday, August 13, 2007


All I want to say at this time, is that I am sorry I haven't posted sooner. I have not been feeling too well due to the pregnancy, and I am now just starting to get back on top of things.

I am now almost 14 weeks pregnant, and I am already starting to show. It is a little depressing, but hey, that is what I signed up for. I do have to have another C-Section, and I will admit I am a little nervous about that. I can honestly say that there is nothing beautiful or natural about that whole entire process. I am a little torn about if I want a boy or a girl. I wouldn't mind having a girl since I already have all the goods, but a boy would be great. I also like to shop, so getting all the boy things would be fun. I would like you all to take a poll and let me know what you may think that I am having. It would be fund to hear from you.

My sister Lynsey's wedding was beautiful. It was a little warm, I will give you that, but it was beautiful none the less. Her sealer was a gentleman who had been in our home ward forever. He watched us all grow up. It was so special to be part of that sealing. I just can't wait for the eternaties, when she will be whole, and even happier than she already is. I will post some more pictures of her wedding soon, but just be happy with this for right now. I was also able to see some of my realitives that I haven't seen since my own wedding, which was 71/2 years ago. Wow! Time flies.

I have since seen Transformers, and Harry Potter, and I recommend both of those movies. I will have to say, Transformers was better than Harry Potter. I also have finished the Harry Potter book, and I must say that I loved it. The only part that I feel could have been emitted, was the epilogue. If you are going to discuss how there live went after that point, you need to go into more detail. What about Fred, what became of him and their shop? What about Professor Mcgonagall? Did she become head master? Did Harry become an Auror? Too many unanswered questions for me. They should just have left that whole thing out, and left it up to the imagination of the readers.

I also wanted to tell everyone that we are trying to buy our apartment complex. It is currently at two units (two bedroom, two bath), and a studio. We are wanting to remove the wall from the two bedroom and the studio, to make it a three bedroom, two bath. I am excited about the endeavor, but they want way to much money for this place. So we will see. I will keep you all updated with this wonderful new development.

Alright. Here we go.

My life is really pretty boring right now. Trying to spring clean the house, because we have company coming next weekend. I have to at least pretend that I know how to clean a house. I am also trying to get up enough courage to call our landlords and ask about our bathroom remodel. Any suggestions on how I can do that without sounding dumb then let me know.

I am just so amazed with Emma right now. She is turning into such a little adult. I was pointing my finger at her the other day and telling her no, and she turned right around and did the same thing back to me. I love it! Of course I can't laugh at that point, because then she won't think that I am serious. I am also very excited for her to spend some time with my family in a couple of weeks. They haven't seen her since she was 10 months old, and at that point she wasn't walking or talking. I just hope that they enjoy her.

I also recently have been nagged by a friend who thinks that we should buy a house. They market is turning around rapidly, and a lot of builders are offering some pretty good incentives to get you in. I think I will take a look to find out exactly what we could afford, but I am nervouse about jumping off of that bridge. Renting sometimes just seems so much easier, until you realize how much money you are putting down the toliet. Anyways......

My little sister is getting married, and I just saw their engagement pictures. They look so happy, and I couldn't be more excited for her. I have my reservations, but its just because I am not there to spend time with the future Brother-In-Law. I just hope he treats my sister right.

Well that is all for now, look for my upcoming movie review for Transformers on July 4th.

Thursday, June 7, 2007

For the Love of........

I have just finished a two book series (a third on the way). The first book was called Twilight, and the second was New Moon. The author's name is Stephenie Meyers. After reading these two books back to back, I realized just how much I love to read. I highly recommend these books. The third book in the series comes out in August. I am not sure how much men would appreciate these books due to the romance content, but they are about vampires, so that might still interest you. If any of you have any good books I can read let me know. I am about ready to tackle Harry Potter again. I need to re-read the last book so that I can prepare myself for the 600 page plus final book. This has been a really great summer so far. Great movies that are coming out, and great books. You can't get any better than that.

I would also like to comment, that Cameron just recently purchased guitar heroes with his points at work, and I LOVE IT!!! I think that I have played it more than he has. I have also recently recieved Dance Dance Revolution. Man, you definately get a workout with that game. It is fun as well, but extremly difficult. With these three things, and dealing with Emma getting her molars you now know what my day is like. Fun! Fun! and kind of annoying.

In closing, I just want to say that you need to pick up a good book and read it.

A Day in the Life....

I just thought that I would touch base with you all after what, two weeks of not posting anything?

I first want to start out by saying that Pirates of the Caribbean ROCKED!!! I loved it, and it was the first time in awhile that Cam and I both left the theatre thinking wow, that was worth it. We had decided to go to the 9:15 a.m. showing, because we have decided that we are too old to deal with retarded teenagers. There where quite a few families, but no teenagers. It was wonderful to sit through a movie without wanting to punch someone. I have listed several reasons I liked the movie on my top 10 list. Please read!

Cam and I decided that we needed to take a family vacation. It seems to be that the only time we take a vacation, we are going to Idaho to see my family. We decided that we need to spend some time with just our family and no one else. It was a wonderful vacation.

We arrived at our hotel on Saturday, and it was a very nice hotel. I guess maybe that was because we were staying at a hotel, and not a motel. Us poor people feel like we are in the lap of luxury when we get to stay at a hotel right? When I walked in, there was a waterfall outside near the lobby, and I was pleasantly surprised that our room looked exactly the way they described on the website. That night was the most wonderful night of our lives. NOT! Emma decided she wanted to be up at 2:00 a.m. Well she was up until 4:00 a.m. and we where all tired the next day.

Sunday went a lot better for us. We arrived at the zoo early in the day, and I can't believe how big that zoo is. I don't even think that we saw half of it. Later that day, we went to the beach and it was packed. We spent quite a bit of time at the beach. Emma loved the beach more than Sea World, and the zoo. We got her some toys to play with in the sand, and she sat there and played, and played, and played. She then decided that she wanted to go in the water, and she loved to go splash around. I don't know if there is any nutritional value in sand, but Emma sure thought that it tasted nice. Once we left the beach, we could tell that Emma was tired, but we needed to eat dinner. We had to keep her awake until we got to the hotel to change and go to dinner. She must have been hungry, because she ate two whole pieces of pizza! She played on the toys at Chucky Cheese, and just enjoyed life. When we got back to the hotel, we put her in her pj's and she crashed! It was a really good night for us.

Monday was fun as well. We went to Sea World, and I really enjoyed the shows. Emma I don't think had any clue what was going on. We went to the Tide Pool, and there where crabs, urchins, and starfish in a pond. You where able to pick them up and play with them. We gave Emma a star fish, and she started to bang it against the side of the pool. She is such a goober. We then were able to pet the rays, and that was a weird experience. They were slimy and you could feel there muscles move. I thought that the Dolphin show was the best. It was entertaining to say the least. We then went up the huge tower they had that overlooked San Diego. The drive home after that seemed like it took forever.

Overall, we really enjoyed our vacation, and I can't wait to be able to do it again.

Okay Everyone,

I finally found the USB cable for my digital camera. Sorry it has taken so long. As I was going through the pictures, I realized that I haven't taken any pictures of Emma since Easter. I hope that you all enjoy them. If you can't find the link (I know it is tiny) it is in the upper left hand side that says Flickr photos.

I have mixed feeling for tonight's American Idol Finale. To be perfectly honest I am relived that it is over. I just have not formed an attachment to any of the contestants. Yes, I like Jordan and Blake in their own ways, but Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, and Carrie Underwood just hit it out of the park vocally. I think American Idol went through a slump like this back when Dianna Degarmo and Fantasia Burrino where up for the title. I didn't care much for that season either.

One thing I am excited about, is "So You Think you Can Dance?" It is starting on Thursday I believe, and dancing is always something that I wished I did well. Maybe I can be taught by the greats in Heaven. I swear that the winner last year Benji was Mormon. Swear it. What do you all think? Did you watch?

I am going to Pirates of the Caribbean on Friday morning. We feel that is a good time to go due to the fact that there won't be that many children out and about yet since it is the first day of summer vacation. Hopefully my top ten list afterwards will be "The 10 Best Things about Pirates." Looks awesome, and I have my hopes up. Hopefully they won't be dashed to pieces.

What do you think????

Well I need some feedback as to how you like my new site.

Couple of things. Sunday was Mother's Day, and I love the fact that I am now a mother. For about 3 years, I would cry and be a little down when this day came due to the fact that we couldn't get pregnant. I never thought that I would LOVE Mother's Day. Cameron had a present sitting out on the table, and when I opened it, there was a DVD called Center Stage. I already had that particular movie on VHS, so I was a little confused. There also was a computer game called Jewel Quest as well. I will admit, I was a little disappointed. Cameron is always so thoughtful and can come up with some really sentimental things. I was reading the back of the computer game when Emma came running into the room. She had a box and a card in her hand. I opened the box, and inside was a pearl necklace. I didn't want to cry because Cameron would have made fun of me, but I absolutely loved it. I loved getting a card from my little girl with her name Cameron must have helped her scribble. It was a great day, and I think this will be one of the holidays that I will enjoy.

Cameron and I have decided to go on a vacation to San Diego. Emma is big enough now to enjoy Sea World, and I have never been either. We are going over Memorial Day weekend, and I think that may be a bad decision on our part. Cameron is extremely stressed out with his job, and I think that he needs a couple of days away just to enjoy life and not worry about work. We are also going to the San Diego Zoo. I am excited to get away, and will update you all with pictures and everything. I promise!

One last thing. I really, really, really hope that the Suns can pull out a win against the Spurs. My husband is so into his team. His mood rides on whether or not the Suns win or not. I think that they need to win a championship. Steve Nash deserves one. He has already been jipped out of getting the MVP. We can all have a good laugh at how ridiculous the newly crowned MVP did during his playoff run. I don't know much about sports, but I do know that he let his team down when they needed him the most. I just really hope they can pull out a win.

Hope that you all enjoy hearing me ramble. Love to hear all the comments.

Everyone needs to get ahold of themselves (Nick).

I will take responsibility for losing the usb port for our digital camera, but when Cameron came home today with about 10 usb ports that can be used for various things, not one of them fit our camera. Soooooo, we still have no pictures as of yet. I promise before the weekend is out I will have pictures for you all.

I am excited for tonight. Several of my friends and I are going to the midnight showing of Spider-man 3. I will let all of you know how I enjoyed it, and how much I slept through it. I always think that we as humans put a lot of ephasis on being entertained. The reason why I say that is very simple. As I was waiting in line to purchase tickets this morning, there where already two lines of people waiting for the movie. I almost feel bad that as a society we have nothing better to do than sit on a lawn chair all day long waiting to watch a movie that will be over in two hours. I like to think that I am better than they are, because I will only be standing in line for 2 hours rather than 13.

I also wanted to let everyone know how mad I was that Phil Stacey left American Idol last night. What is up with that! I loved his voice! Depends on what kind of a cd that he comes out with, but I will probably buy it.

Janae, if you read this I want to let you know that Diner Dash is the best computer game ever! It is fun, you should try it. They have a 60 minute free trial. Trust me, you try it you will like it. I have also found another favorite, Chocolatiere. I will post the websites where you can play the trials. I can't right now because I am at work.

Love you all.

Hello everyone and welcome....

I am not as fluent in speaking as some of my fellow friends, but I hope you will find some entertainment in my random thoughts on life. I promise that I will update you with some photos as soon as I find my usb port for my camera. For those of you who know me, that is kind of par for the course. I have heard that blogs are all the rage right now, and I hope that I will get better.

And James, Cameron does know about my beautiful and lovely wife. Of course he is ecstatic.

Hope that you all post comments as I love to hear from you. Enjoy your middle of the week monotony.

The Beginning....

Much to the dismay of all those that thought this blog was about all things British, I am quite sorry to disappoint. This is in fact for my beautiful and sweet wife to share the intimate details of life with the entire world. I love you and wish you the best in finding therapeutic relief in the airing of grievances and expressions of hopes and wishes!
