the price is right and foreverlazy

-getting back to work this week has made it the longest week ever.  i swear it's been friday for three days now. 

-in the category of "it's a small world, after all," we knew two different people who won prizes on "the price is right" this week.  TWO!  it was celebrity week on the price is right, and our first friend, armando, won the whole showcase with snoop dog on the show.  then, samantha,  the daughter of a woman in our church won a car and $10,000 on the show that neal patrick harris was on.  crazy. 

-have you seen the commercial for the "foreverlazy?"  possibly the worst idea i have ever seen.  they are fleece footed pajamas that you can wear out of the house.  i can only assume the low price of $19.95 or whatever it is must include whatever chemicals you need to inhale deeply to put you into a frame of mind that allows you to think it is okay to wear them anywhere, let alone in public. 

-started watching "the help" last night after the kids went to bed.  being old, we didn't finish it.  we'll finish it tonight.  about halfway through, i must say, i really like it.  i didn't even really know what it was about, but i am, so far at least, impressed with the way it is handling some tricky race issues. 

--this week in church we are starting a new sermon series called "when Christians get it wrong," based on the book by the same title by rev. adam hamilton of church of the resurrection in leawood, kansas.  this series will take a look at some of the ways that christians sometimes forget our main calling and get caught up in "majoring in the minors."  it is also about how these little distractions have become focal points for many churches, further convincing the world that the church in general is irrelevant, judgmental, and hypocritical.  we will be taking a look at how we, as one local church, might start to rethink some of this, and do our best to embody the things Jesus told us were most important: loving God and loving others.  during this series, we'll be dealing with some very touchy issues, like faith and science, politics, and homosexuality, to name a few.  it should be interesting! 

-oversized orc terrell suggs has publicly ridiculed tim tebow's faith, for no apparent reason.  didn't know it was possible, but i like terrell suggs even less now. 

-not that i'm a huge tim tebow fan.  i mean, i think he's really earnest and has a good heart.  i just hope the steelers catch lots of his passes this week. 

-speaking of that, i haven't said much on here about the upcoming playoff game, but don't interpret that as me being somehow disinterested.  believe me, i am more than amped about this!  the steelers are awful banged-up in terms of injuries, so i don't have my hopes set too high for a long playoff run here, but i am certainly hopeful for a win against the colorado horsies this week.  man, i love playoff time.  go steelers!

We loved "The Help"! I read the book last year from a recommendation and loved it as well. The messages are profound.

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
