WEEK 1 | WEEK 2 | WEEK 3 | WEEK 4

Week ending FEB 14th, 2010
I hate being sick!

Starting Monday night I picked up a cold, probably from the gym. I hadn't been sick in a while and had to work 1/2 days from home so that I wouldn't get anyone else sick in the process. I am just now (Sunday) starting to get over this thing. I'm jonesing to get back to the gym because I've missed a weeks worth of workouts. Didn't even have the strength to work out anyway -- especially knowing that doing so would have only made me more sick.

Work is going fine. I have one major project that I am working on and hope to have it finished in a few weeks and ready for certification. After that I'll have some time freed up so I'll start taking on some new projects.

As I said most of this week was spent resting so there isn't much to add. I missed Church this weekend (didn't want to get anyone else sick) but watched the feed online. Always feel guilty when I can't make it, lol.

Anyway, that's about it for this week. Hopefully I'll be 100% clear of this cold by next weekend because it's Bx4'10! (haha). Lots of good things planned with the BBQ and LIMO ride. I am really looking forward to this. Hopefully we'll even have time to catch a movie before we go. Lots of friends coming too so it's going to be a great time!

Ok have a great week. I will fill you in on more next MONDAY because I'll be pretty busy next Sunday!

 

Week ending FEB 7th, 2010
Hope you had a great week!

My week was fantastic, as always, woot! I'm just enjoying life right now so I really have no complaints. And really, the blog isn't to complain but more or less to share what's going on (good and bad, right?!). So what is going on???

Well to start it's been busy but fun because we have conferences this week and next at work so there's been a lot of after-work social activities going on. Tuesday we went to a Wine Tasting/Dinner/Jazz party downtown which was a lot of fun. I met a lot of interesting people, including an active duty Col. in the USMC. Of course him and I had a fun conversation about what it means to be a Marine. I don't think I've lost any of it. That special comrade you have with other Marines never goes away. The party was fun and yes, I stayed out of trouble. Friday I went out with a friend and Saturday I took it easy and went to Church (which was also great, btw!)!

Wednesday we went to a local place for dinner and that was pretty fun too. Lots of conversation about TV shows (which I don't watch much, even though I have the new TV). One show I have been watching is very much like a new and improved "Married with Children" called "Modern Family" and it's hilarious! I have never laughed so hard in my life. It stars Ed O'Neil who played Al Bundy in the original "Married...with Children" series. He's pretty much the same and every bit as funny. It's good have ol' Al Bundy back, haha. (I'm an honorable NO MAAM! member, lol).

I did finally watch the "Transformers" movies this week. They were way better than I thought they were going to be. (I'm not sold on this whole "Meagan Fox is the hottest thing ever" trip. Have you ever heard her talk?! *rolleyes*) I don't know why Michael Bay gets so much slack. He's a good Director and enjoys lots of explosions (translated: Dude stuff)! haha. He did great on Pearl Harbor but so many people criticized the movie for not being accurate. Why should it be? It wasn't a documentary, it was fiction! I'm also really enjoying being able to download movies from NetFlix on my PC AND my TV! How cool is that?!

Well today is Sunday and I am planning a little superbowl party. I have a friend coming over so we'll watch the game, do a little BBQ and then later her and I will watch a movie. Should be fun!

Church by the way is great. If you want to get a taste of what my Pastor is like, go to horizon.org and listen or watch some of the past sermons. Yes, I realize I am asking my friends (some of whom are not Christians) to watch a sermon. Just give it a chance! "Let he who has ears hear!" You might be surprised that while a clear message is being preached, it's without bias, being taught completely from God's word with as little interpretation from man as possible. And IMHO, that is exactly how Church should be. All about God, all from God with very little interference from men!

Ok, I'm off that soapbox for now. MotoGP and WSBK testing has started and I am excited. Hayden is a doing a "tad" better than this time last year but he's not where I expected. Of course Ben Spies is already tearing it up (and is faster than Nicky) but we'll see where that goes. Nicky really does need to have a come to grips meeting with the Ducati people and figure out what is wrong with that bike -- aside from just being a Ducati, haha. Nobody else but Stoner has been able to handle it: Melandri, Capirossi and now Hayden -- and these are not bad riders. It's gotta be the bike.

OH! BX4('10) is all set. Got the limo reserved and everything is all planned. Lots of RSVPs for this one so it should be a fun and SAFE time for everyone. Can't wait to see my OC friends. It's been a long time you guys.

That's it for this week. Be safe, have fun and GO COLTS (Coz I can't stand the Saints! LOL).

B.!
