Random Things...

Since Duck is sending his millions of readers to my blog, it's time for me to post something. It seems like life has been boring lately, not much has happened that is post-worthy. I think we've just been really busy. So, I'm just going to post some random things:

1. Basketball. Got to watch Dylan and Tanner (my little brothers) play basketball on Tuesday night. We didn't know about the game until about an hour before it started. We had about an hour and half to drive, so made it for the end of Tanner's game (JV) and all of Dylan's (he's a senior). We lucked out, though, the game was a huge blow out, so we got to see Dylan score a few three's (he ended up with 14 pts, I think) and Tanner even got in long enough to score a couple three's and a few more baskets. I was really proud, feeling like my brothers were superstars!!! And they are!

2. New Years Resolutions. Last year, I made the ambitious resolution to run a 5k. I ran 3 of them and medaled in two. This year was a little harder.... I had no ideas. So, I stole Kyle's resoution. I'm going to try to read the Bible in a year. I have never read the whole Bible. Sad, I know....

3. Baby Countdown. Rhea (Kyle's sis) is ready to blow! Her baby (initially thought to be due at the end of this month) is due ANY DAY NOW! We are anxiously waiting for THE call, and everytime the phone rings, say "Oh, Rhea had her baby!" only to be disappointed by something far less exciting.

4. More basketball. Tonight Kyle had a city league basketball game. The opposing team had a girl, which was really funny for me to watch. No one would guard her aggresively at all, except one guy on Kyle's team - he blocked her shots, fouled her... so funny. Why was everyone scared of the girl?

5. The big payoff. We paid off my computer today. Getting rid of bills is always exciting for me. I have to celebrate!

6. Blessings. Tonight, I'm feeling especially blessed. I love it when I get emails from my friends. Am emailed me today asking for snowboarding tips, which I have NONE. I'm not very good. But, it's fun to know that my friends still think of me often. I'm always thinking about them!

7. More Bible Stuff. I'm terrible about having daily time with God. Terrible. But the last few days, I've been reading the Bible each day. Coincidence that I'm feeling really blessed and happy with my life? I think not.

Good luck with reading the entire Bible in a year. I am a slow reader, it took me over a year to read through the Old Test. Reading all the notes in my study bible slowed me down a little too.

Thanks, it's kind of fun that we're both doing it, and we've been talking about what we've been reading... usually we do our own thing.

One tip on reading the whole Bible in a year: take your time. I know that sounds funny, but otherwise you'll end up like me, reading it in 6 months, but remembering very little of what I read. Very sad.

It's a fantastic ambition though, I commend you!

Mandy, I always think of you! By the way, I don't have any broken bones! Snowboarding was so fun!

Yay! I'm glad you had fun, Am!! We'll have to go together someday.
