We had a wonderful time at my sister Carrie's in Savannah. C and B wanted to get up early and drive so we could have more time on Wednesday. We left at 3:56 a.m.!!! Dan and Blake stayed in the back with the DVD player and Playstation for the majority of the trip. When we got to Carrie's (about 11 EST) Jack was passed out on the couch (later found out he had an ear infection) and Henry was asleep too. So much for early arrivals! We had a great time with everyone. The funniest thing was how ALL the boys played Rock Band and Mario Kart. Dan liked holding Henry and playing video games. We came home on Friday with VERY full bellies and very tired. Thankfully we have the weekend to recover. Except for this little thing called the Iron be continued :)

Cake wrecks and other thoughts

Haven't posted in a while, altho' lots of things have been going on! I have a new job that starts Dec. 8th. I will be working at UAB in the new stroke unit/surgical stepdown. It is something completely different than what I have done in the past, but I think my ER background will be beneficial. I had so much fun buying scrubs and new shoes and feeling very "nursey." My friend Shari that I met during the nurse refresher course is also starting with me. Our other friend Beverly is also interviewing on Monday, so she may do orientation with us. Now on to cake wrecks. This site is too funny. There are HILARIOUS pictures and comments about professional cakes gone horribly wrong. You need to read the commentary b/c the stories that go with them will make you laugh out loud. First stop-the fireman cake and story-too funny. Enjoy! (I don't know how to link it here, so check out the side bar of blogs I am following.)

Championship Game

Saturday Blake had the Football championship game. They lost 12-7 in a real heartbreaker. The got up early in the game 7-0. Later in the first quarter the Patriots got a TD, but no extra point, 7-6. Late in the 3rd quarter our defense held them on the 2 yd line. Our next possession the other team stripped the ball from our quarterback and scored a td, 7-12.
The Lions tried really hard to get some points, but they just couldn't make it over the goal line. After the game, the other coach came and told the boys that sometimes the better team doesn't win, and that happened today. They did get a nice silver football trophy and made promises to get them next year. BTW, the Patriots are now 30-0, so you can see they are a hard team to beat! Other news: Connor got to go to math team competition and the 6th graders from his school came in third out of 11. This was the first time Connor and the other kids had done this. I think they liked it more for the "field trip" aspect of it, but they were proud of their accomplishments and brought back a plaque for the school. I had a job interview on Friday for the new Stroke Unit at UAB that I think went very well. I tell ya when I hear back from them.

Super Sunday

Lots of fun today. Connor had his team party for football at Heardmont Park. The boys all ran around and the parents hung out while Coach Doggett roasted a whole pig. Delicious! My team mom duties are now over-yeah! Next I went out to dinner/margaritas with some sorority friends from college. We had a fun catching up and I met some women that started at AU after I left. We are going to try to make it a regular dinner and bring more people in to the loop for the next outing-fun!

Random Thoughts

Saturday night and I sit here watching a team that does know how to play football. Obviously, not Auburn. Anyway, so I was reading Carrie's friend Teresa's blog. She is a photographer and someone left her an anonymous voice mail complaining about something from a year ago. Blah, blah-very beyotchy. That got me thinking about problems Carrie had a few months ago-also anonymous crap trying to put her out of business. There are some people that have NOTHING better to do with their time than to annoy and cause trouble for others. GET A LIFE! Okay, complaining over. Tomorrow will be a long but fun day. Connor has a team party for his football team and I am meeting up with some sorority sisters for dinner. Pictures to follow, I am sure. One last thing-Halloween/Dan's b-day was fun... at the last minute the boys decided to trick or treat. Before Friday they said that they wanted to just hand out candy. Thankfully we have various things to make a costume. They were "hockey fans." See picture :)
