as promised

Things we are thankful for:

(If your picture isn't on here, that just means we didn't have one of you on our computer, but we're thankful for you, too!)

Happy Thanksgiving to All and to All a Good Night!!!

Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving All !! I think it's easy to get caught up in the commercialism and hype of this holiday, but remember what's really important: FAMILY. Also, give thanks for all you have, your life could be much, much worse. Speaking for myself, I have a roof over my head, I have enough money to make ends meet, I'm healthy (now, thanks Jen), I have wonderful caring family that all would have given me a kidney if they could( you may get your chance in 10-20 years), I have a license, I have a car, I have a wonderful Fiancee who humors me even when I have off the wall ideas.

We even have some money for new toys. As early Christmas presents to each other we got new Mountain Bikes. And this weekend we are going camping. If I can emerge from my Tryptophan induced coma, I'll post pics later.

Love you all,

Petwalk to benefit homeless animals

Hello! This year, we'll be taking part in PetSmart Charities®' PetWalk, along with thousands of other walkers, as we try to shed some light on the homeless pet problem in Arizona. Pet overpopulation and pet homelessness is a growing problem and local animal welfare groups need your help to combat these issues and help PetSmart Charities find a lifelong loving home for every pet. With much needed education and support, more dogs and cats can be adopted each year and saved from euthanasia but we need your help. Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to the PetSmart Charities' PetWalk as generously as possible? Together, we can make a difference for these pets!

it's almost here...

It's almost here. The moment you have all been waiting for.

[bear with me...I'm going to act like a teenager for a minute]


The only thing I'm concerned about is where to see the film. I'm almost certain that we will be surrounded by a sea of hormonally driven teenagers no matter where we go. It's going to be madness. There's already talk of theaters selling out, people camping out and waiting in long lines, you name it. And parking. I'm almost thinking that this weekend at movie theaters will be akin to the release of The Dark Knight - meaning, I think it may be impossible to find parking anywhere. [Don't remember what I'm referring to? Click HERE]

And I'm worried for Joe, too. Mostly because I know he doesn't wholeheartedly want to go. And also because I know that, once we are waiting for the film to start surrounded by loud, obnoxious (like we all once were) and screaming kids, he will look at me and probably wonder to himself, "who is this crazy person who made me come to this movie?" But he said he definitely wants to go. I know he is faking his enthusiasm, but I love how supportive he is of my mad indulgence in this crazy teen "thing". God, give him strength. And serenity.

Actually, I may need some, too. :o)

Can it be Friday yet???
