Okay I know you are so tired of hearing about my illness! However, this bug has really kicked my rear!! Yesterday I was trying to be a brave teacher and headed off to the troops just like normal. No sooner had I made my way to work did I begin to feel the pain coming back. I ended up having to leave before 10! Thankfully the 3rd grade team has a compliance teacher (for non teachers...that is a classroom that has over 22 kids, they get an extra teacher to be legal). She took over my kids till a sub showed. I am so blessed to have such an amazing team at school. They jumped in and just went with what they had left (which was not much). I headed straight to the doc! Lots of lecturing on how I was way to dehydrated, some new meds, and major rules on how much fluids I needed then out the door I went. Headed home and slept for about 2 hours....then drank and drank and drank! I promise you I am so sick of drinking that I could go crazy!
Today was a new day...I was actually able to eat food for the first time in 4 days!! (FYI this has been a great diet, but painful too). I did head back to work...I just can't leave my kids. Although I now have 5 kids out with the same issues!! Please bug leave our classroom NOW!! Oh and did I even mention my poor tennis team. They have been amazing too. I have been scheduled for 3 matches. One got rained out (thank the LORD), the other I had to opt out on....Thanks Mel for playing for me! Well needless to say "MOM" (our team captain) is going crazy; but good news I think I will be able to play that match tomorrow night! YIPPEE!! You know I am sick if I can't even play tennis, come on.
A little side note: I have to be better by FRIDAY! I am going with a my sisters good friend Kara to see RYAN STAR! I have never been, but am excited to get to go. You can read about how Kara won tickets here.

This was a nice ending to my weekend of BLAH...now I need to try and do some school work too!

Okay so yes, Chris and I love the YANKEES!! Well Chris' family have been Yankee fans for forever. He has drawn me over to the Yankees side too. Dilemma....Yankees vs. Rangers! Why is this a Dilemma? Well we live in Rangers Land, and yet they are playing the Yankees. Chris was lucky to receive tickets to Game 6. He was super JAZZED and I was pretty pumped too. We had amazing seats, right on the 3rd base line. On Friday we headed out to the game. I was the brave on in the family! Brave in the fact that I wore my YANKEES shirt to support the boys! Chris, well lets just say ummm not so brave. He declared he would have to fight off all the Rangers fans on my behalf anyways. We left early for the game, because we knew traffic would be pretty crazy. We also got to enjoy all the buzz around the stadium. Needless to say you all know how the game ended. The sweet Yankees couldn't pull it off!!! But man was it CrAzY when the RANGERS WON!!! The entire stadium was shaking because so many people were jumping up and down. Confetti was fly....EVERYWHERE!! The RANGERS were OVERJOYED to say the least, and the fans as well. It was a great experience even if our team didn't pull it off! We are also kind of small Ranger fans too! Plus it is fun that they have finally made it this far. Way to go RANGERS!! Here are so of the many pictures we took...sorry they may be a little Yankee heavy!!
Yep...sport'n my Yankees gear!!
Just before the game...
Later on we met up with Chris' sister Whitney and Hunter. We joined them for the end of the game in Hunters families box. It was fun to enjoy the game with them. We always love seeing his sister...really we live so close we should see her more.
I have never seen so many people in the stadium before. It was crazy there!!!
The moment after my boy JETER struck out!! The party began....Look at the joy and excitement!
I am a bit sad because the picture of Chris and I didn't turn out very good at all. But here he is with Whitney!
I have a thousand pictures of the excitement...but these are just the ones I like the most!

Speaking of pictures! I have some of our latest class project at school. I will have to give my mom all props here! She sent me the idea from her school and I have love, love, loved it every since. Here is the quick version. I send a manilla pumpkin cut out home with each kid. They then must do what ever they can to disguise it. When the pumpkins return they CAN NOT look like pumpkins!

Then Saturday the weather was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. I had an 8:30 match, which went very well! Our team won so that is always nice too. Around 1 Chris and I headed over to the local North Texas Nebraskan's bar. They have a watch party for all the Husker games at Flips in Keller. We had a nice time there, minus the fact that the Huskers didn't do so well. Plus we all HATE that Texas won!!! YUCK!! After the game Chris and I did some shopping. As you are aware I have been debating computers for a bit. So well....we did it! We bought a new computer!!
We are now the proud owners of the new MacBook Pro!!! I am overjoyed with happiness. I had full intentions of going in to the Apple store and just ask about all the functions and such. However, we had the sweetest girl helping us. She explained all the functions that I would want to use for blogging and such. Chris was like heck lets just do it...I couldn't believe it! But he has heard me hum and ha about this for a bit. Not only did we buy it, but it was our Apple girls first computer sale. That makes it even more fun for all parties involved.

Yes, it has arrived!!! Birthday-palooza….it begins with me, which I quickly went past. I tired not to even stop and celebrate but with my family that was hard. Needless to say I begin the BiRtHdAy MaDnEsS!
October: Next up is Timmy my new brother in law! His October 16th! The following day is my brother in law Brian’s birthday, on October 17th. Then we have off about a week and a half before my sister’s birthday. She is a “SPOOKY” baby, October 31st. Holly cow this is just OCTOBER!
Moving in to November, the 1st would have been my grandpa’s birthday. Chris will be joining me in the BIG 3-0 LAND on November 9th!!
Then we hit up sweet B’s 3rd birthday on November 21st. He can tell you all about it, a TRAIN party!! How perfect for him.
Not but a few days after B is my wonderful mom.
December: we have Little Bear! I can not believe she will be 7!! Wow how time flies.
After Little Bear is the FATHER of the BRIDE’s big day.
Then it is one of my new sister in laws, Melissa’s birthday.
Finally the end of the month we have Chris’ father Steve!
Wheewwww I am worn out just typing all that. Can you tell that my next 2 1/2 months is going to be crazy. I didn’t even mention that Chris and I have to start figuring out Christmas gifts for family members and so much more! Do y’all have any crazy birthday madness? I have kind of already predetermined, WHEN (and no TIME SOON) Chris and I start working on a baby we will MAKE sure it’s not in the crazy BIRTHDAY season. That is if we get a say in things, ha.

Okay so life is full of dilemmas, but recently I have been posed with a new dilemma!!! As you have noticed lately my blogging well has been very RARE! That is not by choice I PROMISE. I actually have had many BlOgG-a-BlE moments. Thus the dilemma…………….my COMPUTER!!! Okay so it is on the fritz, last leg, or death bed as one would say!
Here I sit in a sad place as I am now faced with what to buy next! I have recently (okay for 3 weeks now) been searching for the BEST computer!
Here is what I am wondering? Please help me out!!! I mostly use my computer for: internet, blogging, and uploading my
many millions (as Chris would state) of pictures. I thus have begun to wonder if PC or MAC is the best choice?
PC seems to be an average 2 to 3 year lifespan for me….which can add up. MAC starts off more costly, but may last longer?
What type of computer do you use? Do you lOvE it? Have you had it longer than 2 years?? PLEASE HELP ME OUT! If you do have a MAC do your blog straight from blogger? Do you have any problems blogging on the Mac? Since I have a PC I use windows live writer (a bit more user friendly when adding pics and such)to blog from. Thanks in advance…I can’t stand this NON-blogging life I am living in currently! Also I need to work on wedding photo books to save all our wonderful memories! AH AH AH!!!

Okay, so maybe the sky is not falling here! But my world has changed a bit! I have entered a new decade!! YIKES and I am not happy at all. This past week I turned 30! AHH AHH AHH I have been dreading this day for a while now.
However, my wonderful family came to town and helped me
deny celebrate the big 3-0. We had a very busy weekend around town. We got to enjoy the Arboretum, Lily B. Walkathon & family night, pumpkin patch, and miniature train! BUSY BUSY BUSY to say the least! It was an AMAZING 30th even if I didn’t want to celebrate the big day! Thanks to my people for making it special. Love you all more than life.
Check out our weekend recap in pics!
It all began with a birthday dinner…
Enjoying some fun at Lily B for family night. Next dinner with E and Brian! E gave me a birthday gift she has been working on since the wedding this summer. It’s the heart in a gift that means the most!
