Last Shot?

It's snowing again. AHHH! When will it stop. It's spring! Hopefully, this is the last shot of snow. It's supposed to be in the fifties later this week. The closed school in Owatonna at noon today. I'm not really sure why. I went out and it wasn't bad at all.

New Look

I've got a new layout for the blog. Hope you like it. If you don't I will be sure to change it right away. Ha. I've added a music player too. You can play each full length song. It's a whole lotta fun. Yee ha.

So I had a cold the past few days. Tuesday night at work I felt terrible. I had to blow my nose every 2 minutes. Somehow I made it all night, though. I went to sleep right when I got home. I woke up at 9:30 AM and had to go pee. As I was going to the bathroom I realized my stomach didn't feel so good. I knew what was coming. I tried to fight it but I couldn't. Nothing came up the first time, or the second, or the third, but finally the fourth time something came up. I can't open my eyes to look at it or I'll puke some more. It was terrible. One of the top 5 worst things that can happen to me is puking. I hate it! Until yesterday I hadn't puked for a few years.

On that yummy note, enjoy lunch.

For some reason I have no defense against getting a cold. I always get one. I've got one now. I think it happened when I was in a house for 4 days straight with a bunch of other people.

Easter weekend

We're back from a good long weekend at Shirley's house. We got there Wednesday evening and got back Sunday night. We had a good time. They say all I do when I'm there is sleep. I disagree. I did sleep though. But not as much as they think. I even played one of my least favorite games a couple of times, Peanuts. It's like Dutch Blitz. I did play a lot of Super Mario Bros 3.

gone for now

When Stephanie gets off work today we are leaving to go to her mom's house for the rest of the week. We'll be back on Sunday. Not sure if I'll be able to blog or not. The internet is a little spotty there. Have a good week.

stop calling!

So the past couple weeks or so we've been getting some calls from 451-0770. I would answer and I couldn't hear anything. After a few times I was really starting to get sick of it. I went to and did the reverse phone number search so I could see who was calling me. It was some Management place in Owatonna. I tried calling back and it would ring three times and hang up. Well they called again and this time I could actually hear someone talking very faintly. I told them to stop calling this number! Well, that wasn't it. They called again. I said, "Hello" in a not-so-nice voice. The girl said, "Let me in". Huh? It turns out that it's an apartment building. When somebody comes to the apartment and pushes a button to a certain room to get in, it rings at our house! Ahhh.

It's that time of year. March Madness. The time when I try and fill out 10 different NCAA basketball brackets online for the .15% chance of winning some money. I always try and pick an underdog to win in all on a few brackets. And of course it always happens. HA. I'm thinking this might be my year. At least Iowa isn't in it this year so I don't have to watch them loose by a last second shot like two years ago.

If you know my wife well you know that she can't sit still. She's just like her mother. She's always up and doing something. She can't sit and watch a movie or a tv show without getting up and cleaning something or just doing something. I'm always telling her to just sit down and watch. Mark this down! On Thursday evening she laid on the couch and just watched tv for 4 hours! 4 hours. It was amazing.


On a side note, if there is ever a comment with a link that you don't recognize, don't click on it! I try to delete it as soon as I see it. There's been a few, it doesn't happen all the time, but every once in awhile.

bathroom stand

I had someone wondering what we are going to do with the old stand we had behind the toilet in the bathroom before we redid the bathroom.

We'll that didn't take much thought at all. After I scraped all the poop off I found a great new home for it in the living room.

Thanks Amy.

Dove Award Nominees

It's that time of year again. The Dove Award (the Grammy's of Christian music) nominees are out. Every year, since I don't know when, I guess who the winners are going to be. I never do that good, but it's fun anyway. Here's who's nominated this year.

And here's a link to my pics for the winners of each category. We'll see how I do. If your brave try and go up against me. I dare you. The Dove Awards are April 23.

Stephanie's Birthday

Right now I'm getting Stephanie's birthday stuff ready for her. Today is her birthday!! I went and got her a "birthday pie" from Perkins. I got her favorite, a Lemon Meringue pie. I also got some of her favorite pop that she doesn't get to have very often, Vernors. They sell it at the Cash-Wise grocery store in town. I also had flowers sent to her work this morning and I got her a new cartridge for her Cricut scrapbooking machine. Not exactly sure what we are going to do tonight. We might go eat at one of Stephanie's favorite restaurants, Boston's, in Faribault. We'll see. We are taking the night off from Awana. I think it's so much more fun celebrating someone else's birthday rather than your own. And I don't think it has anything to do with being down on your own birthday cause your getting older. It's just more fun to give to someone else.

I love you Stephanie. Happy Birthday!!
As a special treat, I've included this exciting YouTube video that has nothing to do with Stephanie's birthday or anyone's birthday or anything for that matter.

Chuck Norris Blender

So my brother-in-law, Will, told me about some YouTube videos where they put different things into a blender to see if they will blend. So he sent me an email about a video where they put Chuck Norris in a blender.... check it out.

it's late

It's late and I'm extremely tired. It's 6:30 in the morning. I slept a little bit in the car on the way back home yesterday afternoon, but that was it. I was starting to fall asleep standing up at work. It's a good thing I didn't break any glass last night cause I had some poppy seeds in a salad I had. I probably would have failed.

Adelynn already says, "TJ is the coolest uncle ever." And Stephanie potty-trained her.

I'm shredding right now. We got a shredder this morning at OfficeMax so we can shred all of our old bills and stuff. It's a lot of fun.

About a month ago we got rid of the ducky bathroom. I told Stephanie I wanted something else. It was just getting a little old. I was going to say something sooner but my parents were coming up so we wanted to surprise them. We acted like we redid the bathroom months ago since this was the first time in a year they've been to our house - (guilt-trip).

Here's some pictures of the newly remodeled bathroom:

Lovin Life

Lovin Life, the new cd from the Gaither Vocal Band releases April 15th!! Woohoo! This album contains 13 tracks. Here's the track listing:

1. I'm Forgiven
2. Build An Ark
3. Jesus And John Wayne
4. Go Ask
5. Home Of Your Dreams
6. Search Me Lord
7. Lonely Mile

9. The Diff'rence Is In Me
10. I'm Loving Life
11. When I Cry
12. Prisoner Of Hope
13. Then He Bowed His Head And Died

I always look forward to a new GVB album. And they never disappoint. I've heard the clips from all the songs and this will be good. "I'm Forgiven" is a remake of the Imperials version. The Vocal Band even does a couple of their older songs, "Build An Ark" and "Search Me Lord". If you want to hear the clips from all the songs click this link and scroll down towards the bottom to "GVB - Lovin Life Song Sampler". On that page you can also see what each member of the GVB thinks about Lovin Life.

You can preorder Lovin Life on, or CBD. If you order from you get a magnet and you get it a week or two before the release date. Or you can just wait till it comes out in stores and get it at Wal-Mart, Target or where ever.

This is going to be good.

March 1st- My Birthday

Today is my birthday!! I'm 27. It seems like just yesterday I was 26. Last night we went to Mankato and ate at Famous Daves. Mmmm. It was so good. This morning my aunt and uncle, Bill and Judy stopped by. They didn't really come for my birthday but they were in town looking at a vehicle so they stopped by. Then Nicole and the kids came with some presents and stuff and we all went to Taco Johns and ate. Stephanie got me some awesome new pajama pants and a new sweatshirt. It's been a fun day. I get to work tonight.
