I got one!!

I went into Wal-Mart today and they had 3 Wii's! So I bought all three. Okay, so I only got one. Woohoo! I got the Wii Play too. That comes with some more games and another remote thingy. I probably won't be able to open and play it until Thursday.

So, this person came into Officemax and had scrapbooked a cookbook of her and her friends favorite recipes. It was really cool, and got me thinking. I should do that. So awhile ago I decided I was going to do that, and started typing up all my favorite recipes. The guy TJ works with (Will is his name) does the cooking in his family and is always asking TJ to bring him the recipe for what TJ was eating for supper, or something TJ talked about, or whatever. So I told TJ to tell him I was working on a cookbook, and I'll make an extra one for him. Well, I guess Will has been asking TJ every night at work if the cookbook is done yet! Talk about pressure! So yesterday I decided I would finish the cookbook for him. I made a cookbook on the computer for just for Will and went in to Officemax today to get it printed and bound together as a book. I immediately dropped it off at Viracon for Will. I wanted to bring it to him personally, but at the door I have to go through to get to the section where TJ and Will work, there were a whole bunch of guys taking a smoke break and I didn't really want to walk through that. So I put it in the car for TJ to give to him. I was kinda bummed because I wanted to give it to him myself. Oh well. Hope he enjoys it. Now I have to actually work on my cookbook! The scrapbook one. That's the fun part for me!
That's my story-----Stephanie


I went to WhoTV.com to get todays news in Iowa. I see Des Moines is burning down. There was a big chemical explosion at plant in the Des Moines area. They have the interstate shut down in the area too. I'm watching "live-streaming" on the internet and there's 55 gallon drums blowing up and flying through the air. How exciting.

good weekend

It has been a good weekend. On Friday, Stephanie and I and another couple went bowling in town. I've never been bowling at the alley here in Owatonna because you could smoke there. Well, they passed a state-wide ban on smoking in public places so now it's smoke-free. It's a lot bigger and nicer than I thought it would be. Stephanie killed us all in the second game. I think her score was 176? Pretty good. Then we came home and had pizza and played Settler's Of Catan. On Saturday we met Stephanie's mom in Mankato and went shopping. I'm in the market for a Nintendo Wii. I sold my XBox Friday night with all the games for $100. So now I'm trying to find a Wii. They're all selling out again. I'm going to keep checking with GameStop, Target and WalMart in town. I had to be back at 6 so I could work all night. This weekend we're going to Stephanie's mom's house so I'll check in Mankato again for the Wii.

Have a good week,

good news

Good news everyone. Everyone's favorite martial arts expert, Chuck Norris, has endorsed Mike Huckabee for president.

I don't know about you, but now I know who I'm voting for.

on my own

Stephanie went to the Women of Faith Conference in St. Paul yesterday and today with her friend so I'm on my own. I'm watching the Hawkeye game right now while I clean the house. Yeah, that's right, I'm cleaning the house. I think I'll go to Culver's for lunch.

Oh yeah, it's sunny! Woohoo!

Have a good day,

I think the cloudy weather is getting to me. I'm ready for some sun. Don't remember the last time it was sunny.

Woohoo! Today we got the new Gaither DVD/Cd, "Together." I'm listening to the cd right now that features both the Gaither Vocal Band and Ernie Haase & Signature Sound...together. I'm liking it. I haven't watched the DVD yet so I don't know if we're famous or not. The package also came with Gordon Mote's new cd, Don't Let Me Miss The Glory.

Sorry I haven't wrote for a few days. I guess I have nothing to say. And I can't think of any stupid stories. It's hard to keep a blog that's kept at such a high standard going at that high standard.

good sunday to you

I'm getting ready to go to work. Another wonderful 12 hour night. I had to work last night too - 12 hours. Nothing exciting has been going on around here. The Hawkeyes won. I guess that's exciting. Stephanie and I are singing in church next Sunday. We were looking for a song today. I think we're doing "Passin' The Faith Along" or "How Deep The Father's Love". It's a toss-up. Maybe we'll throw in "Boundless Love - The Remix" into the mix too. That's always been Stephanie's favorite.

We'll gotta go.

grocery shopping

I ran some Arends today. I went grocery shopping by myself. Scary, isn't it. Stephanie gave me a list and I went at it. I hope I did all Wright. It was so cold in the house so we finally turned the heat on. Now we've got some warm Ayers finally. Just think, it Will get colder.

When we got back from the Dells on Saturday we turned the air on in the house through Sunday cause it was so hot and muggy. Now, I wake up today and it's freezing cold. I'm about ready to turn the heat on. Crazy.

review of the dells

The Dells is a very nice place. You should visit.


Okay, I'll right a little more. This time in the dells we spent more time at the hotel. We really didn't go anywhere else except to shop and eat. Since we were only there for a couple days we wanted to spend time swimming. The wave pool was a blast as always. We spent the most time there. The other 2 waterparks were great too. One of the indoor parks they were remodeling the inside where there used to be a kid play area, so that was a big pile of dirt. But we were still able to go around it and use that one. It was hot! The outdoor parks could have been open. We taught Settler's of Catan to Will and Melissa. Melissa even won a game. We got some more cheese from the cheese store too. We went on the way there and the way back.

Here's some pictures.

we're back again

We're back again from the Dells. We had a great time. I think instead of getting a regular pool in our basement, we'll get a wave pool.

Happy October!

Wow, it's about time to decorate for Christmas. If this is anything like past years, we may decorate in October. I love Christmas and everything that goes with it. I think we're going to get a new tree this year. A fake tree. I've never had a real one and I don't want one either. I love Christmas music too. I've already got my first Christmas cd of the year, One Wintry Night, A David Phelps Christmas. Very good.

It's still raining.
