Update on Danielle

Some of you know, but my sister and Blake lost their baby yesterday. She went into labor yesterday afternoon, and had the baby, but she just didn't make it. They couldn't get her heart beating.

They made a beautiful post about it on their blog.

Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Update on Danielle

Some of you may know, but my sister has been in the hospital since Monday morning with early labor. Doctors were able to stop it by Monday afternoon, but we just found out that she started having contractions again today. They are thinking that she may have the baby today. Please say a prayer for safety for baby and mom.

They have set-up a blog and will be updating it as frequently as possible.

Snow Day!!!

Even though we live in Nashville, TN, I have somehow managed to get three snow days in the last two months. Unfortunately, it doesn't look anything like this, which I consider to be a true snow day:
This time, we actually had some snow, but I just took Maybel out and it's pretty much all gone :( Oh well, I'm not at work and that's what makes me happy! Me and Maybel are just hanging out. It's only 10:30 and we've both already had a nap. I do plan on doing some productive things today. Hope everyone else is enjoying your snow day!

An Evening with Maybel

Katie had a school function tonight with some parents on Cyber Bullying (which was good, so I hear) so Maybel and I got to spend some one-on-one time together. I got to take a few pictures too, so here they are:

She was watching tv with me (Literally, staring at the tv and paying attention), and I was trying to get a shot of that, but she just climbed into my lap. Elizabeth, you were so right about that!

Maybel loves to play with her tire too. She was trying to make me play with her.

More pic's and a few videos here

Also, some of you may remember my brief shot at fame, and the resulting shame when Andrew was on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" If you don't, it's here. He got word that his episode would be airing sooner than expected. It will be showing on Tuesday February 26th. Comcast channel 14 or 236 if you have HD service.

The beard is for Man's Weekend, which is 10 days away! More on that in future posts.

Listening: Band of Horses - The General Specific

Movie: There shall in that time be rumors of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia-work base, that has an attachment. At that time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer, and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight O'clock.

One remote to rule them all

Today we got the universal remote I ordered through work, and it is AMAZING! I read a lot of reviews, and never saw a bad one. This thing really is cool.

It lets you program it thru your computer and software that comes with it, and you set your TV, DVD, Audio receiver, Comcast Box, etc.

We have gone from 4 remotes to one, and it took 15 minutes to program. If anyone needs an excuse to get a remote, this is it! It rules!

Pretty nice little Saturday

The day finally came....Maybel went to the dog park today. It was pretty exciting. She was a little scared at first, but she warmed up in a few minutes and was running around like crazy in no time.

We went to Warner Dog park, and I don't think we will be going there again. Its mostly dirt, and with the rain this week it was pretty muddy. Maybel has a lot to learn about dog parks. Mainly, don't fall down and roll in the mud. At one point, she looked like a chocolate lab. I wish we had taken the camera. She almost looked like this guy:

She had 2 HUGE collisions with other running dogs. The first one, she got blindsided and I honestly wouldn't have been surprised if she had been knocked out.

A poodle named Cody kept trying to mount her, so naturally I almost had to kill him. His owners were nearby though, so I couldn't.

A big day? Doing what?

Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.
