New Website

I have recently signed up to sell Usborne children's books to help me make a little money and have something to do. I have a website for free for the first six months, check it out and order some books if you can. I'm thinking about having a "party" in Amarillo and here sometime for those that can make it, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to. Anyway, here's the website, thanks for looking! http://www.myubam.com/B3727

Worst Movie Ever

OK, so the movie wasn't actually the worst, I even enjoyed it. It was, however, the worst movie going experience I've ever had. We went to see Transformers Saturday night because we had free tickets from KMart. We had to buy tickets early, then go back to the theater to wait in line for nearly an hour to get a seat. Once in the theater, we found good seats and just waited. Of course, we forgot to bring our own snacks, so we spent $25 on our free movie, but that was our own fault. The movie finally started and we watched for 2 1/2 hours. Then, just as it was getting intense and was probably 10-15 minutes from the end, the projector broke. The theater went dark. People were all yelling and wondering what was happening. Then the manager and a police officer came in and gave everyone "rain checks" to see another movie or watch that one again. It was already midnight and we had to pick up Sophie or I would have stayed and demanded my money back. Then I remembered we didn't actually give them money, so I got over it and we went home. We still haven't seen the end of the movie and will be using our rain checks for something else, probably Harry Potter next month. Pete is looking for a copy of it to download so we can at least see the end. We were very irritated that night and disappointed that we sat through that long of a movie only to miss the very end.

More Cookies

These are some cookies I made today for Blake & Ethan to give to their teams. The soccer balls were the hardest cookies I have made yet. They didn't turn out as good as I had hoped I could do them, but I am still proud of them. I hope the boys enjoy giving them to their team members. Now I have to work up the work ethic and courage to make ballet slippers for Sara's ballet class. I'm still not sure that will happen, but I'd like to at least make a bouquet or something for the teacher. We'll see if I feel like it when it's time for the last class.

For those of you that have been praying for us on the insurance issue, Pete told me last night that we will be able to keep our insurance for the time being. I am very happy about this and plan to get on the waiting list for MHMR so that if need be, we can cancel it later in the year. The children will qualify for CHIP if we do need to get off of the insurance. Pete would be the only one left without any kind of medical coverage. Hopefully this won't happen and the business will be booming, but it feels good to know we do have some options if something happens.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this time. I appreciate it and know that it helped.
