To Name, Re-Name, and Game

So much to write home about…not sure where to start.

Lil’ Lassie is her name, but today we think she’s grown into a boy…to change the name or not to change the name, that is the question. We got this pup the same way we got our cat, Alice. A stray brought to the radio station, seeking a home.

This miniature collie, which is a common mistake according to the red headed step-kid who says it’s actually a Sheltie, is obviously named appropriately since she/he is the little version of the most famous collie dog of them all. Lil’ was chosen since she looks like she could choose a career in Hip Hop. But now with possible boy parts, my boys want to change the name to Astro…decisions to be made.

The last time I wrote about life was before the SuperBowl, where I watched the game with my co-workers, ate crab cakes and liked, and WON $60 from the bets! Who knew my lack of sports knowledge and awesome guessing abilities would bring home the bacon!

The husband and I had crab cakes the Friday night before this event at Carrabas and I have to say, they were amazing. Either my taste buds matured or died.

Yesterday a new event took place in my life, the eldest child drove four of her friends to Elizabethtown…using the parkway to get there, like normal folk…I would have preferred her to take a horse drawn buggy but NOOO they had to drive her car. Heart attack, heart attack, heart attack…

They made it home safely…

Praising Jesus…

In other Thomas family business:

The husband and I attended our churches Valentine’s Banquet and I was super impressed with my friend Brads decorating ability. Wish I had photos, he is amazing. It was a black/white event and we had a blast.

The yes/no game was a hit. If you have never played this, please google and learn to play.

I received chocolate dipped strawberries from the husband on Valentine’s Day, very cool to receive in the mail. Scrumptious! What tops food in the mail? NOTHING.

The eldest girl got me and dad a Valentine box of chocolates. She’s really a very thoughtful young lady.

The red headed step kid hit the winning shot in their basketball game today..apparently it was 0 time on the clock when he launched the ball…I’m never there to see these shots…I’m cursed.

The boy has setup a gaming station in his room with the extra TV in the house. Not sure why we have so many TV’s. I vaguely remember the husband saying something about investing the kids’ college money in RCA, I thought he meant stocks and bonds…

Not sure why he needs the large garbage can…gaming must produce a lot of garbage.

Update on Jillian Michael’s 90 Day Challenge:

We’ve held strong for two weeks but then missed three days this week due to sickness…BUT it’s working. I really do like this so far. Only 30 minutes a day…Heck Yes! Just when she has pushed me to consider cursing, it’s over. Just how I like it!

Because taking pictures before a workout is the best photo opt EVER...
