Chloe and I had Sunday Dinner Guests Today I had Mindy and Adelle over for Sunday dinner. We had southwestern sandwiches, salad, fruit, and apple pie(this thanks to Marie Calander). After eating I introduced Adelle to the Wii. First we had to create Adelle's Mii, doesn't she look cute!! We all thought so until she started winning at all the games, ok not all the games but many games.

Mindy's not winning. In fact she was very proud of the fact that she really could not play or win any of the games.
We played Wii sports and then I put in the Bejiing Olympic game I got for my birthday. Finally I had a chance, to take it all and I was quite humble about it as you can see.
Quick note yes the washer works and it did not flood the basement so I think things may be looking up this year. I still need to get a new plug for the dryer.

Changes for Fall!!!

Yes it is real....ok and fake...a little of both and some wire too.

Well it is time again to figure out what wild and crazy thing I can do with my hair to try and promote the excellent orchestra program and upcoming concerts that we want everyone to attend. Last year was my first attempt at the wild hair thing and I think the braids did the trick. As you can imagine I had many questions as to what was coming up. This year I decided to go a little less drastic.... just a layer of fire red coloring to show my school spirit. I did get the hair done just in time for the big rivalry game, I fit right in at the football game. The orchestra sold concesions and made $450 for our program, way to go everyone!!!

In addition to the hair change, which is rapidly changing from fire red to hot pink, I also said goodbye to the laudramat this weekend. Yep I purchased a used washer and dryer set and hope that all goes well when I try to use them. The plug for the dryer does not fit into the plug that is provided in my house so I will have to go buy and new plug for the dryer, hopefull after that all will run smoothly.

to be continued........

On Friday I had another great birthday. I spent the day teaching at school and then took a trip home to Idaho Falls. Little did I know that it would turn out to be the best birthday ever!!! On Saturday I went to a meeting with my parents for their time share. Checking things out to see if it was something that I would be interested in doing. The time share company was giving out trips in Hawaii and Mexico and I was a winner. I am going to Hawaii. I could not believe it but YES I was actually one of the trip winners. After the meeting I went with my parents and sisters out to dinner where they gave me some great gifts that I cannot wait to try out with everyone the next time we get together.
Sunday I had a great get together with friends and got to celebrate again, a 3 day birthday. I think it is the longest I have ever had. Thanks everyone for a great birthday.
