I just got back from a wonderful girls' trip to France. My mom, sister, and I had so much fun in Paris and the Loire Valley where the chateaus are. Paris is beautiful this time of year because everything is just starting to bloom. While we were there, we did a lot of sight-seeing, giggling, and shopping. Shopping included looking for...
MATERNITY clothes because we're expecting! I'm 3 months along and Lord willing, we will be bringing home a little bundle sometime near our 6th wedding anniversary in October!
Bill and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary with a vacation in Europe this fall!!! Since high school, I have loved reading and watching movies on the early 1800’s and we are actually going to go see some of those places! We are going to Paris, London, Bath, and this house (Chatsworth) near Bakewell in the UK. For you Jane Austin fans, this is “Pemberly” from Pride & Prejudice movies. I want to wear a bonnet the while I’m over there but Bill says he won’t be seen with me.
I’ll bore you with the details later, but for now, we need your help. Bill and I would like to go to a play in London but we aren’t sure which to go see. Your options are …
-Les Miserables (sp?)
-Phantom of the Opera
I don’t think we’ve ever been to play unless you count high school and we don’t really know what they’re about. So, please make a case for your play below… Bill says choose wisely. :)

Day 983 of my captivity.
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.
In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.
Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at
their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. They continue to pick me up and handle me, an obvious attempt to
There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I
was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event.
However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one
of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs.
I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and
snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released -- and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.
Tonight I will again lay on their heads while they sleep and
hope to smother them.
Jessica - I'm sure you're cat is wonderful... but I thought this was so funny. :)
I’ve decided that Bill has a secret job on the side… he looks for American Idol talent. Are these coincidences?
1. Jasmine Murray – from Starkville - Home of Mississippi State… Bill’s alma mater
2. Alexis Grace – from Memphis - Bill is too
3. Lil Rounds – from Memphis - Bill is too
4. Kris Allen – from Conway - Bill has visited here several times
5. Michael Sarver – from Jasper - This is right up the road from us
6. Megan Joy – Her name is the same as my sister’s… this is probably stretching it
7. Anoop - This is what got me wondering… Bill showed me a you tube video about a year ago of Anoop singing in the UNC acapella group
So there are some interesting coincidences with 6 of the contestants.
Megan (my sis) is living with us while she does her dietetic internship/grad school. The internship finishes up in May and then she gets married in June. We’ve had so much fun together! I’m also helping with wedding plans. I had forgotten how much time that takes.
Wesley (my bro) got an internship this semester in Houston. So, he’s only an hour away. I love having him so close!
Bill is working really hard. It’s still really busy at work. Even with all of that going on, he’s super sweet and always patient with me.
I recently got an additional job at work. I’m still a cost engineer but it’s part-time now and the rest of the time I’m a capital budget coordinator. I really like it! It’s busy but fun.
BTW, next time you go to the doctor, ask them to check your vitamin d level!!!
