my week at a glance

Oy, it's been so long since I've updated my blog! Sometimes I just feel like I have nothing interesting to say, but I've been trying to convince myself that a blog doesn't need to be full of big, exciting posts all the time and that it's okay to write about the little things. So that's what I'm doing today!

~Earlier this week I lost my cell phone, or it got stolen, or some combination of both. I looked everywhere I could think of, and it doesn't help that at my work I get no reception so when I called my phone I wasn't be able to hear it ring if it was there. So, I've been taking David's phone to work with me as I have a longer commute and no work number, which he does...and I've been hoping that it would just show up, but it hasn't. So yesterday we were at dinner at this nice Italian place and I was saying "I guess I'll have to get a new phone" and he jokingly said that it wasn't fair that I got to get a new one and he didn't. Flash-forward to later that night and we were about to go to bed and he couldn't find his phone. I felt this intense sense of "uh-oh, what did I just do!" and said "uh, don't worry about it honey!" and then quickly walked over to the laundry area and dug his jeans out of the washer and low and behold...there was his phone! It was completely fried and I just started laughing uncontrollably. You know one of those totally inappropriate situation kind of laughs. So I went in and told him I did something bad, but I could not stop laughing. Poor guy, he probably thought he'd married a nutcase! Finally I managed to stifle my giggles and tell him, but he was not quite as amused by the whole thing as I seemed to be. I told him that at least now we both got to get new phones, but that did not seem to help! Lucky for me he wasn't too mad and this morning found it somewhat amusing as well. But, lets just say this has not been my week for phones!!

~On a brighter note, yesterday was gorgeous so David and I went out and played tennis. It's crazy to me that we were able to do that in January! I got to use my new racket that my lovely in-laws gave me for Christmas and I did pretty well. Not good mind you, but not bad for me. Hopefully we'll keep having this nice weather so we can play again soon.

~I got 2 issues of Self magazine in the mail this week. Some little elf must have gotten me a subscription. It's always fun to get unexpected things in the mail!

~I've also been trying my hand at digital scrapbooking this week. I like the textures and stuff of traditional but I've always thought digital would be fun because it's less messy and I like the idea of being able to print out several of the same page without having to actually do more than one. It is a lot harder than I thought though! Once I get the hang of it I don't think it will be so bad though and it will be great for when we have kids. I'll post some pages I've done in a later blog. :)

~I signed up for this free Kraft recipe magazine a while ago and finally got the latest issue in the mail this week. It comes out periodically and has got some really neat recipes inside. Go here to sign up!

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Like so many others you have not been posting much lately-- and I have not been online much to comment either! I just hope you will continue to post occasionally--I very much enjoy reading and viewing your words and photos. Hope you and David are thriving as you settle into being married folks. And I hope you have hung onto your cell phones lately... :)
Are you eagerly awaiting spring as much as we are over here?
Blessings, Sue
Oh-- did you see that our new granadson arrived? He is pretty sweet.
