Last night was totally awesome! I broke TWO high score records in one night at League!
My previous high score was 152, and I broke that one with my first of three games with a 154. Then had a low score game of 111 (but still hit my average) and then the last game was TIED with CATHY with a new high score of 161! Man, this can become addictive!
I do like having an outlet to keep my mind of the dreary weather here in the never-ending winters! I cannot wait to move from here. I have not ever wanted to write anything negative on "our" blog, but it is too hard to stay true to myself without true expression - which I am not good at these days! Maybe I haven't been for a LONG time.
I do really long for the days when I can go to the grocery store and they DO HAVE milk and chicken! I mean, really - this is like living everyday in the middle of a hurricane! Gas prices, the cost and availability of milk - and DON'T EVEN get me started on the lack of fresh bread and fruits and veggies - is really wearing on my good nature! I hate it here. I know that we have a great life and don't really have much to complain about, but really, you cannot help how you feel! You know?
I LONG FOR FLORIDA SUN! Traffic, Convenient Stores, malls, Target, Michaels, Drug stores, Firehouse subs, Mugs n' Juggs, the BEACH, The Bayside Bridge, the Eastern Standard Time Zone... and so much more! 541 more days left here... and that is how all three of us feels...
So, Bowling and Scrapping keep my mind in the happy places BEFORE and AFTER here... :)
Rainy Days Won't last forever~

I'll tell you, I can spend hours trying to find just the right background and header for our blog! But I don't keep it updated as I would like. You know, it is funny how life goes on, and I cannot think of anything to blog about. I mean, it is like writing in an open diary. Days seem to be uneventful, and nothing happens that is noteworthy!

We all have been very busy these days being creative with our own things. I spend hours scrapbooking, and I am now working on our wedding album after 11 years of marriage! I am so glad that I waited until I was ready to do this, though, because I wouldn't have done it as nicely as I can now! :) I have recently been added to the design team here at the Kodiak Craft Garden! I am so proud! I am having a great time and "making myself" do the things I like to do while I have the time to do it!

Phillip has been playing his guitar about every day. He loves his new processor - and so do all his friends he has found to play with! He, Bill and Paul like to hang out and play all sorts of songs. It is good to see him playing again.

Andrew is doing his thing - hanging out with his friends playing Poke'mon (which Phillip and I don't understand or like very much). But it makes him happy as a lark, and that is really all that matters right now. He goes to his friend's house about every day and plays at his fort where he says he has developed a "Poke'mon Fan Club". He says they meet every day after school. So neat!
We plan to sign him up for an up-coming art class starting Jan. 25th. I hope it is great. He LOVES art!
