A Car and a Milkshake

Well I found out my mom is now reading my blog. Which I think is cool. So I thought I would write a blog about her. As I was thinking about what to write about, I thought I would write the story of how my mom and dad started going out.

They both went to the same church and grew up in the coal town of Shamokin, PA. Now I am a little fuzzy on the specifics, but something was going on that brought both my mom and my dad to downtown one day. My mom spotted my dad and his friends and heard they were going for ice cream (my dad lived on milkshakes back then). Once again I am fuzzy on the details but I believe at this point my dad invited her a long or mom asked to go along. Either way my mom is not one to miss a ride for ice cream.

And that was the beginning of their dating. Now a days we try to impress women with our cell phones, sound systems, designer clothes and fancy dinners. All my dad needed was a car and a milkshake.

The Human Clock

My new favorite website.

Snow, Snow, Snow

Well they say we are between systems. This weekend we are to get anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow. And on top of that I get to go help a friend move tomorrow in the middle of it. (I don't like the cold) I do love snow for the most part. But it is just much better when you have a fireplace to sit by and a cup of hot chocolate to drink while watching it. Have a good weekend everyone. Go Eagles and Go Steelers!!

Enjoying a Winter Wonderland

Big Girl Bed

Well we bought Anna her first toddler bed last night. We figured it was time when she crawled out of her crib for her nap the other day. It only took an hour and half of crying and playing around in her room before she finally laid down for the night and actually stayed there all night. She was excited to get to use her Dora pillow, sheet, blanket and nightgown. We will eventually move her Dora toy box, Dora table and chairs, other Dora chair and numerous Dora toys in there as well.

But all in all and hour and half is better than I was anticipating, so we are excited and are hoping for a quicker to bed time tonight. **Fingers crossed**

Anna was so sick this weekend. We took her to the doctor's office on Friday and they decided they need a blood sample. Well she was so dehydrated from getting sick and from the runs they could not get a blood sample after trying on both arms. I couldn't take it I had to leave the room. From the waiting room I was ready to rush head long back to the room and save her from the misery they were putting her through.

Finally the screaming stop and as my wife (yes, I left my wife in there to help hold her down. She is more use to it with her job.) and Anna appeared only to find out we had to go the hospital to try again.

I wanted to refuse, however, because there was a serious threat of dehydration I was helpless but to let them stick my little girl 4 more times. Luckily this time thanks to a lot of prayer from me and Amber they were able to get the sample on the fourth time and Anna appeared out of the room a little happier. (That was probably in part to the lollipop they gave her.)

Well all that and they told us she did have virus (which there was nothing they could do) and she was not dehydrated and didn't need an i.v. And once we got home she was finally wanting to drink something and was able to keep it down.

So although I felt helpless and in a sense I was, but luckily I have God who is not and was taking care of my baby girl.

Wow a 100

I have been working on a list of 100 things about me. I have been working on it for over 2 months now. It is hard to come up with 100 things about yourself that you are willing to post online. So far I am up to around 60 or so. That is why I haven't posted a lot at times. I take a couple of days to think up a few more things to add to my list instead. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will have my 100 post. Has anyone else heard that this is something a lot of bloggers do. I have only found it on one other persons site. If you have heard of this or have done please let me know. Thanks.

Day 5

Well it is day 5 of the New Year and so far...well I am doing well on #6. (By the way did I mention that since the big snow storm we had I have had no cable.)

So anyway, last night my friend Ron invited me over to his house to watch the National Championship. My family and I spent the evening with them and it was really great. We had a good time. I had to show Ron's sons how to whip on their old man. (Luckily Anna saved me before the roles were reveresed. She doesn't like her daddy wrestling.)

Okay well of to my biweekly lunch with the guys at Pizza Hut.
