awesome neighbor story
she tapes notes to our door once in a while...to ask for somethin', just say hi, or give us a life update. the other night we came home to this...
How The Fight Started...
I accidently rear-ended a car this morning.
There we were alongside the road and the driver slowly gets out of his car.
You know how you can get sooo stressed and then how real-life-stuff seems to be funny?
Well, I couldn't believe it...the guy was a DWARF!!
He storms over to my car, looks up to me and says, "I AM NOT HAPPY!"
Without really thinking I look down at him and say, "Well then...WHICH ONE ARE YOU?"
...and that's when the fight started...

I Love My Boots!
something new to learn today
Through my ‘many’ connections, I discovered that it depends on the projectionist. They usually show the previews and first fifteen minutes to make sure no one shows up…then the projectionist decides to turn it off, or not.
To summarize: If a movie is scheduled to play and no one shows up, it may still go…or not.

faith sunday #1
my goal for this year is to give myself a break - i'm always so frustrated with how imperfect i am. how far i have to go to be who i "want to be." screw that...i am who i am and that's just fine. and i'll always be a work in progress.
so "being free" is the theme of '08.
this came from the Christian song, I Am Free...not sure who wrote it..Newsboys sing it...

Eclipse '08 - go team!
after the easiest tryout ever, my team seems to be off to a good start. we've had 4 practices...with 3 more before our first tourney. it’ll be shaky, but a good opportunity to work out some kinks. i’ve got a few seriously talented players, so that’s exciting.
Highlights from the year so far:
- I ran ‘em hard at their first practice. Within the first twenty minutes, I had one girl call her mom ‘cause she felt sick, one girl sit out for ten minutes, one girl with a sore hammy and the rest whined a lot. I gave ‘em a little break, but continued to push hard throughout practice. I’ll do this again next year. (this was Timmy's idea...setting the expectation for the season)
- I’ve got a real assistant coach this year. It’s pretty awesome…he gets paid and everything.
- When I let the girls ask me three questions at our team/parent lunch, their first question was, “Do you have a boyfriend?” Second question was, “Do you want to get married?” Third question was, “When do you want to get married?” (I found out later that Assistant set this up)
- I already have two girls out with injury – one broke her pinky at gymnastics…the other hurt her wrist at practice a week ago, but hasn’t gone to the doctor. Her mother doesn’t want to take her ‘cause then she might miss out on practices, etc to heal. (seriously?)
- There’s been minor drama – the two main setters told a potential setter that she shouldn’t worry about setting because they’ve got it taken care of. I get to have the “no one’s position is set” talk.
- I still love coaching. I get frustrated and annoyed, but I truly enjoy it. Though I'm pretty nervous about school starting next week and finding time to do it all...

revenge is sweet
Watch yo’ back.
(yesterday morning i stopped at Nob Hill to get a coffee on my way to practice...came out and walked right by a red ford focus with a Packers license plate…grimaced and shook my head at that silly person…and then realized it was my car…)

book 1 - december - Eat the Document
don't bother reading it, in my opinion (along with the rest of the club). couldn't get into the characters and the writing wasn't great. a slow story.
book 2 - january - The Attack
i loved it. a man finds out his wife was a suicide bomber in israel and we get to read about how he deals with it. quick, fairly easy read...but intense, as the topic's pretty serious.

another kick in the shins
"When starving cattle rush toward your pickup truck to eat whatever garbage they can find, when feathers from scavenger birds line the ground so thick that it looks like a layer of ash over an old fire, when flies fill the air, and when the smell of animal entrails, garbage, cattle, and whatever else is so strong and so bad that you are literally scared of where you're at, you don't expect to see people there. You don't expect to see men, women, even barefoot children there searching for food or whatever they can find. These are the poor people in Guatemala."
