Bits of This and That

First of all, a huge shout-out to Revka over at Designs by RS, who designed and installed my new header. I won this during one of their Christmas giveaways and she very kindly worked with me and made it just perfect for me. Be sure to drop by and check out their blog - they are always offering new discounts and layouts that can spruce your blog up.

My friend, Melissa (who is currently blog-less, but I'm hoping she'll join us soon out here in the blogsphere) sent me this cute little bit. It's funny, but thought-provoking.

New Packers Quarterback

In a news conference today, Deanna Farve announced that she will be the starting QB this coming Sunday. Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the last 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers. During this time she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, and is now completely comfortable with other terminology of the Packer offense. A survey of Packer fans shows that 50% of those polled supported the move.
Does this sound unbelievable and idiotic to you? Well, Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats agreed. She has never run a city, county or state. When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she spent 8 years in the White House, Dick Morris stated, "So has the pastry chef."

Everyone's been asking about how I'm doing with Hubby gone. We are doing ok, truth be told. I mean, we miss him desperately. But day-to-day is ok. I'm finding that there are all kinds of things that he normally takes care of that I don't even think about - watering the lawn, monitoring the pool pump, writing the check for the offering at church, making sure the tires in the cars have air, etc. But overall, we are moving along with life. It helps that this week normal life has kicked back into gear after the holidays.

I still do have some exciting things to share about what I've learned from my romp through the minor prophets. It's just taking me a while to process it all, so I haven't posted about it yet. But keep your eyes out for my thoughts on both Joel and Hosea later in the week!

Hey Lor,
Why would I want my own blog when I can hang out over at yours! I like the new heading and colors. It makes me want spring to come. Wait, it was here yesterday but we had some tornados, so maybe I do want winter..wait that was here last week when it was only 5 degrees. I guess all I have to do is wait and the weather changes. That's Wisconsin for you! (Go Pack!)

Haha, new Packers quarterback -- that was funny!! True and a little scary, but funny nonetheless.

Glad to hear you're keeping up, even with things you normally don't have to think of!
