CRAP! Sorry for the language, but I just wrote a huge blog and it has been erased!! ARG. I hate user error. How will I ever remember all my cleverness?? Oh wait...there wasn't really any. =P Hello, Monday! Begin again!

This weekend was full of friends and singing. Good times. Our church choir had a big six hour rehearsal on Saturday to introduce this year's Christmas music. Needless to say, I am ready for the holidays! Jim totally vetoed my Christmas CD on Sunday morning, though. Boo. And a "Booo booo prince!" to Becky as well. =)

Men are weird. Trent has always been a crazy runner, and I suppose Eric as well, but now Jim and Mike have joined the club. These boys run miles and miles all over Oregon, and they are planning on running 40 miles around Mt. Hood!!!! WHAT?!??!? is how the normal, sane person would react to this. They are nuts. Not only this, but Jim, Mike and Eric met at 5:45 AM on Saturday to wait in line for three hours for a used gear (junk) sale at REI. (bewildered look here) I never want to hear another word about me hitting the Nordstrom sale at 7:00 AM again. And, after waiting for three hours, my cute husband walked out having only spent $0.83. (more bewildered look here) I am so happy that I have the support of all of their wives, who would rather get a coffee, watch a movie and chat than run around mountains and go to REI. PHEW!

Speaking of those wives...they are my dearest, bestest friends. I was reminded yesterday of how lucky I am to have them when I had a little crying spell at church. What encouragers they are and selfless spirits they have. I always think to myself...I hope that in some small way, I can return all their kindness.

On Saturday evening, everyone came over for a man-cooked meal (yes!) of shish-ka-bobs. Yum. While we were waiting, we got to watch a five minute exercise routine performed by Baby T in Jen's tummy. Weeeirrrd. But so cool. There was an elbow, knee, bum, something, moving up and all around, making her tummy expand and well, look like an alien was in there. What a miracle. I think he is getting restless and is probably just as ready to come out as Jen is to get him out! I cannot wait to meet this child. =)

I think that's about all I said...WAIT! I did three loads of laundry in my new washer and dryer! Yessssssssss!

Okay, that's all.
