Happy Birthday Lori!

Today is my little sister's birthday! Since she is younger than me, I'll not tell you how old she is. I will say that she is past her third decade. Hope she has a terrific day!

I was hoping to post a picture of my two boys in their Papa John uniforms. Luke helped Mark get a job there, and he actually trained in his younger brother. Christina may even join forces with them (not as a delivery person, but as an in-store worker. We'll see...)

Maybe I can post those pictures soon. Busy now getting ready for Christina's friends to come over for a Halloween get together.

Teenagers out after 11 pm should have cell phones and why I am doing laundry at 2 am

I heard my cell phone ring. "What is going on?" my sleepy mind said to itself. "I know I didn't set my alarm--tomorrow is SATURDAY!

It was my phone ringing. At 12:50 am. This cannot be a good thing.

"Hello?" "Suzi--this is Barney's mom (I'll use fictitious names). Do you know where Barney is?"

Earlier in the day--so early it was on my cell phone during my pre-dawn walk with Raven--I had chatted with Barney's mom and agreed we could pick Barney up from school and he could stay at our house till time for Powerhouse (a Christian youth coffee-type house). I also said we'd be sure he got a ride home that night.

So, I checked with Christina before they left with other friends for Powerhouse around 9 pm. I said, "Make sure to call me by 10 if Barney needs a ride home."

Well, long(er) story short(er), the kids hung around a bit after Powerhouse and then friends started driving kids home all around town. After calling Christina, her friend Fred, and another friend Roscoe, I finally located Barney. I called Barney's mom with a cell phone number so she could reach Barney.

Now, if Barney had a cell phone of his own none of this would have happened.

If Christina would have heard her cell phone when Barney's mother called her to begin with, none of this would have happened.

As it was, I was unable to fall back asleep. But it wasn't all bad news. I did some cleaning up around the house, put in a load of wash and started the dishwasher.

Funny what you can get done at 2 am when the phone wakes you up from what you think is a dead sleep.

All because some teenagers didn't have cell phones.

Thinking Thursday

Today is supposed to be my day to catch up on my Daniel Bible Study Lesson. But it is already after noon, and other interruptions have eaten up my time--phone calls, e-mails, laundry, etc.

It's nice to have Mark back home, and good to know he's safe and sound. We've heard some of his adventures, but he's been adjusting to the time change and sleeping or hanging out with friends. A few of the jobs Tim had planned for this week have now fallen through, so Mark's help hasn't been needed yet at work. Last night I helped Tim put a resume together for himself and we're actually sending out applications for other(non-drywall) employment. It's tough to compete in drywall these days when so many construction workers are working for very little pay.

So, Tim and I are talking, thinking. Making plans for the next phase in life. It's a little gloomy out today--most of the leaves are off the trees and it's overcast.

A good day for thinking, sipping tea, and studying the Word.

Till next time,

The boy is back!

Well, Mark arrived home last night--his plane was only two minutes late (but when I had checked online it was supposed to be 30 minutes early, oh well). Tim, who is too cheap to pay for airport parking, circled around while I searched for our boy. We met his friend Sean there, too, and we were trying to locate each other on our cell phones when we discovered we were talking only about 10 feet away from one another.

His beard is back and his hair is a bit longer, but he looked good. We talked a little bit, but I let him hang with Sean and take the car out to visit other friends. We'll have time to catch up now that he's back in our house.

If nothing else, I can entice him with his favorite foods--like taco pie, waffles, and chocolate chip cookie bars.

Till next time,


PS My appointments went well yesterday. My hemoglobin is back up to 12.1 and I got my flu shot too. I guess I got the pneumonia shot in 1998, so I'm good till I'm 65. I was thinking that's a long time from now, but I guess it will be here before I know it. I'll be turning 50 next year, after all! Yikes! :)


Tuesday, October 24, 2006


Today is my day of appointments/meetings/pick-ups. This morning I went to the eye doctor and I'm in very good shape. However, my reading vision continues to deteriorate, as I have recently moved to a +150 for reading glasses and tested at +175. (The doc says to try to read at a level lower than what you test, as long as it's comfortable.)

I'm going to visit my family doctor today for a check up/follow up on my surgery a couple of months ago--I'll have my hemoglobin checked and get a couple of shots--pneumonia and the flu shot. I think it's probably especially a good idea to get the flu shot now that I'm working on a college campus. Those students, bless their hearts, can spread a lot of germs! I heard the most contaminated place on campus is probably at the library computers. I'm a little more sensitive to germs as I recently got a forwarded e-mail about purses and how they are such germ magnets (think about where you put your purse throughout the day!) I checked this e-mail out at snopes.com (to see if it was a hoax) and it is true that purses can be carriers of lots of icky stuff. I try to put mine on hooks when I can and am avoiding placing it on counters, especially in the kitchen! Clorox wipes come in handy--I'm trying to wipe my purse once a day.

Anyway, this evening at 5:15 I'm going to a new book club (just an hour gathering) with a new friend from work. Then at 7:44, the biggest appointment of the day--Mark is arrive at the MSP airport!

I have to say, since Mark postponed his trip last week, it's a little hard for me to believe I'll actually get to see him tonight. But I remain hopeful, nonetheless.

In the meantime, I'll go on with my appointments and the day should fly by!

Till next time,

Drywall clean up

Well, it's been a pretty quiet week for Tim, but this weekend he has a big job that must be done while the homeowners (well, the wife & kids) are away for MEA week. (Minnesota Education association--when teachers and students are off for a state-wide Teacher's Conference. I don't know if any teachers actually go to this convention--it is just a two-day break for everyone to regroup till the next big break--Thanksgiving!)

Anyway, Mark is still not home, so Tim has enlisted the services of myself and some others. I'm the preferred candidate since I can work for free (sort of). Yesterday I did mostly loading stuff into Tim's van, carrying things back and forth, although I did climb up on the scaffolding and sweep some drywall crumbs from the top of a soffit into a shovel (makeshift dust pan).

Today is clean up, so I'll wear my jeans and a sweatshirt and bring a vacuum. Then I'll come home and have a nice long shower and be grateful I can still work physically even though every muscle in my body will be aching.

I'm saving the leaf-raking here for Mark when he gets home. Hopefully it won't snow before then...

Till next time,

Seeing is Believing

I took Christina to the eye doctor today. She claims she needs glasses, although she's been getting along fine without them since she misplaced her glasses over a year ago. I've been too cheap to take her back to get a new prescription since I hoped she'd find her old ones eventually.

The picture posted here was taken of her in April 2005.

So, the news from the doctor today: she is seeing 20/20. Her eyes have gotten better, not worse.

I'm not going to argue and spend the couple hundred on new frames and lenses. She'll have to get by without the "cool" look that glasses bring.

And hopefully, she will eventually believe that her vision is not as impaired as she thought it was.

Till next time,

Oversleeping and being early

This morning my alarm did not go off. I had set it the night before, but I must have set "disable" instead of "enable." So much for technology (cell phone alarm clocks). I awoke when Tim's alarm went off at 7.

So Tim, who has not needed to be out the door early the last couple of days, said he had to be somewhere by 8.

I got up, got dressed, and made Tim's lunch. Raven and I did our usual walk--I had to hurry him along when he wanted to hang back and greet some fellow canine companions. (Read: barking and lunging while I dragged him along behind me.)

Anyway, we got home by eight, and Christina and I got to her school ten minutes early. A first. She confessed to me that she and Mark had never been that early to school. When I quizzed her (Mark always drove her to school the past two years and they often left quite early) she said sometimes they played Frisbee Golf or met friends at McDonalds before school. I guess there's benefits to driving kids yourself.

Well, I don't have to be at work till 11:30, but I should get moving regardless. No telling what may try to delay me--phone calls, mail, McDonalds (NOT!), e-mail, the urge to take a nap...

Till next time,

Takin' a breather

Yesterday was packed from morning till night. I worked from 9-2:30, then dashed home to find that Tim was there and had already taken Raven out for his afternoon walk. I rushed to Christina's school, where she had discovered that she was missing her knee pads for volleyball--they were in her friend Pete's car in Mankato--over an hour away. We drove through moderate traffic to the other side of town for her volleyball game. It was pretty exciting, and Calvin (Christina's school) came out a winner! I drove Christina and a friend to our house, grabbed a poptart and some chips (ugh) and headed up to BSF. Got home and got a call from Tim, who couldn't find our tax information (he was at his mom's looking to see if it was there in her home office). A few minutes later I found it.

Meanwhile, Pete drove up from Mankato with Christina's pads since she has practice today and really dives for a hit during practice. Pete ended up taking Christina's friend home (Christina rode along, which I did not know about till I called her and she said she was almost home).

Today I'm playing lazy, but I should at least get in a visit to the grocery store to pick up a few things.

No school for Christina on Thursday and Friday, so I won't have to drive her here and there, but I have scheduled an eye appointment for her.

We have warmer temps today, so my impatiens are hanging outside still, but I may bring them in tonight. Cooler temps are coming. It is October in Minnesota, after all!

Till next time,

Six years ago we had a foreign exchange student, a young man, from Ecuador--Marcelo. We had a great year with him--even though at times he tried to exert his independence ("I am NOT 13 years old...")

Anyway, in the spring of his stay with us--just two months before he was to leave to go back to Ecuador, he traveled to Washington, DC to attend his cousin's wedding. I got a phone call the day before he was to fly home.

"Hi mom! Can I stay a few more days?"

At first my answer was no, then I made many phone calls and jumped through lots of hoops to buy him a few more days.

He ended up missing his rescheduled plane.

So, the next day he got on a flight and made it back home. Tim refused to allow me to pick him up at the airport, so he took a bus to downtown with his luggage (he was traveling pretty light) and then walked the few blocks home from the bus stop, after stopping at McDonalds.

This was pre-9-11--otherwise I don't think we could have pulled that one off--a foreign exchange student away from his host family with a questionable time table.

Anyway, on Saturday I got a call from my second born.

"Hi!" (Not hi mom--it threw me off for a second, because actually I was sort of expecting a call from my nephew. But as he kept talking I realized it was Mark.)

"Can I stay in Europe a little bit longer?"

Apparently Mark and John are having a blast in Nice, France--where they are hanging out with other internationals, they have a nice hostel, not too expensive, with four kitchens and laundry, and they buy groceries and take turns cooking.

Tim can really use Mark's help later in the week, but we hated to keep him from enjoying his trip to the fullest. I think he'll be back on Tuesday next week.

That is, if he doesn't miss his flight....

He may be taking the bus home from the airport...

Sunny Saturday

Well, after the blustery days we've had this week, including snow flurries, today at least we are seeing the sun. I got some more training at work yesterday, from the IT guys--learning how to administer an e-mail list. I hope my next training session will be to learn how to post on our website.

Last night I jumped on the bus with 30 or so kids, one principal, and one teacher.We drove to Blaine, MN to drop off about half of the kids (oh, and one parent/resource coordinator at Christina's school) and then traveled on to Wisconsin. Christina was mortified that I sat in front of her on the bus, but whenever she called "Mom!" I just responded, "I'm not here!" Eventually it worked quite well.

The girls played hard, but unfortunately didn't come off with a win. We all went to McDonald's afterward anyway--it was 7 pm by the time we got there. We got back to town a little before 8:30, and Christina decided to spend the night at one of her teammate's. Beckie had called and decided to try to get some stuff done at home, so she may be spending the night today instead of last night. I plan to talk to Daniel later this afternoon to find out if he's like to stop over for an overnight too.

I got a phone call at 12:20 am from Christina's teammate's Mom--apparently the girls weren't there yet. But as I was on the phone with her they arrived. I guess Christina had stopped home to pick up some overnight stuff after 11:30. I think I heard her bounding down the stairs and was surprised she didn't announce herself. Oh well. She called me today and may come home with some friends.

Tim called and he and the dozen guys we was traveling with made it safely up to camp. Luke is with him too. I hope they have a refreshing time and come back ready for a new week. Of course, he called before I was up, but oh well. I'm working on laundry and other cleaning before kids and Beckie arrive.

Meanwhile, Mark and his friend John continue their stay in Nice, France, enjoying the beach and their international friends. I guess they are going to visit Spain on their "next" trip! They are having too much fun to leave their present location. They are hanging with other kids from Sweden, Honduras, Australia, Germany, Mexico, Quebec, and oh, yes, Colorado. I guess they are saving money by buying groceries and the Canadian guy cooks for them. What a life! In four days we will hear all about it--if they make it to the airport on time!

Well, I better get back to work. The weekend will be over before I know it, and I'm hoping Tim will come home to a cleaner home than the one he left!

Be the change that you want to see in the world.

Yesterday I went to my first chapel at Bethel since I was a student there. I rarely missed chapel when I was a student and got to hear some amazing speakers then. I have to admit part of the reason I went yesterday was to earn brownie points at work, since the speaker was one of the faculty with whom I work (gotta use proper English here), Curtiss DeYoung. (Please forgive me if I misconstrue part of his talk--I didn't take notes but hope I am true to the heart of his message.)

Dr. DeYoung teaches Reconciliation Studies at Bethel, which is actually a major now. The message yesterday was based on the scripture "Jesus Wept"--not only how he wept at the tomb of Lazarus, but also over the city of Jerusalem during his triumphal entry.

Dr. DeYoung described a visit he had had to Jerusalem. He visited a church at the Mt. of Olives--I think it was the church of the Holy Sepulcher. In this single church was housed many different churches--and they quarreled and bickered with each other through the ages. In the 12th century the key to the main door of the church was given to a Muslim, and since that time there has been relative peace.

Dr. DeYoung acquired the business card of the man who told him this story--who was giving him a tour of the church. On it read the man's name, and under it, Keeper of the Key of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

This man's family has been in possession of this key for almost 1000 years! Dr. DeYoung wore a Muslim cap for the rest of his message to demonstrate how people of a different faith brought peace to those who quarreled within Christendom.

We were encouraged to be peacemakers, to weep as Jesus wept at division, and work toward reconciliation. Then at the end of his talk, Dr. DeYoung quoted Gandhi: "Be the change that you want to see in the world."

It's easy to complain about all the things people do wrong--inside and outside of the church. It's quite another to initiate change, to be the peacemaker, to act on the things we speak of.

Tracking Mark

Well, I called our neighbors today (their son is traveling in Europe with Mark) and after I talked to them I checked our e-mail and found a note from Mark. Apparently they had a good time in Italy, tried to get a cruise ship to Spain from there (it was too expensive) and are now enjoying the beaches of Nice, France, on the Mediterranean. Tomorrow they plan to head to Barcelona and then to Paris before they head back to Germany and home.

Tonight I'm going to pick up our nephew Daniel at college and tomorrow we'll head to the half-way point to home for him in Wisconsin. He has fall break and because of his soccer injury (can't play for two weeks) he will have free time and my sister can get in some good mothering/doctoring time. :) I remember the first time I was sick when I was away at college, I really missed my mom. I'm not saying that Daniel is not independent, but it's just nice to have a mom who will take care of you. Mine did even a couple of months ago when they were here after my surgery. Wish they lived closer--but we're planning to go visit in a couple of months (wow, time is flying!).

Tomorrow I'll drop Christina off at school, head to WI, head back, pick Christina up and then drive her and probably others to their volleyball game. Life with teens is exciting!

Till next time,

Tax day?

This morning Tim reminded me that the deadline for e-filing tax returns (for 2005!) is Oct. 15, or I suppose since Oct. 15 is on Sunday, it's October 16.

I am not really looking forward to going through tax stuff. I think we have our things pretty much together--it's just a matter of putting our heads together and getting the job done.

Tim's going to Men's Retreat this weekend so I guess we'll be working on this in the evenings.

If we miss this deadline, we'll have to paper file our return. (Like in the old days.) I think we both just want to get it done and maybe we can find enough deductions to get a little money back (we did pay in on April 17 this year--April 15 was on Sat.)

Oh, the joys of procrastination!

Till next time,

Finally responding

I had forgotten that I was tagged over a year ago (I am embarrassed to say) I was tagged by my friend TK at her blog. She had been tagged with the following questions and I will make an attempt to answer them now, one year later! (I remembered the tag when I went to check blogpatrol to see who had been reading my blog. One of the referrers was from TK's post back in 2005!)

1. Do you try to look nice when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog?

I am the most laid back at the grocery store, even though it is a place where I most often run into people I haven't seen for awhile (not blog readers, but non-cyber friends). Mostly my family reads my blog, so I don't think I'd be stopped by them at the grocery store (they live out-of-state).

2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered?

Sometimes they're cropped or I occasionally use hello to snazy them up, but I'm pretty lame when it comes to posting pictures, nevermind altering them. Would like to be better about this.

3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you?

Don't have this problem. I'm not as famous as TK.

4. Do you lie in your blog?

No--perhaps I exaggerate and then...

5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog?

I still don't really get the definition of passive-aggressive.

6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop?

I write because I'm compelled, not because people want me to write.

7. Are you in therapy? If not, should you be? If so, is it helping?

Perhaps my daughter thinks I should be, but currently I'm not.

8. Do you delete mean comments? Do you fake nice ones?
I don't think I've received mean comments.

10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less?

I think most of my readers know me. If they don't, I hope they would like me more because they could meet my great husband.

11. Do you have a job?

Yes, I just landed a job (which I didn't have a year ago) at Bethel University. I absolutely love it--it is only part-time but I'm hoping to pick up more hours elsewhere on campus.

12. If someone offered you a decent salary to keep a blog full-time without restrictions, would you do it?

Now that would be fun.

13. Which blog-keeper do you want to meet in real life?

Rodney Olsen, the Aussie radio announcer on my link to the left.

15. Do you usually act like you have more money or less money than you really have?

I am just who I am--hopefully not too snobby or too whiny.

16. Does your family read your blog?

Well, my first family does (parents, siblings). My husband sometimes reads it but my kids usually don't.

17. How old is your blog?

I've been blogging now for over 3 years (hard to believe!).

18. Do you get more than 1000 page views per day? Do you care?
No. Sort of.

19. Do you keep another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar?
Nope. I'm grateful for my life, although I get discouraged like anybody else, but my husband is a great listener.

20. Have you ever given another blog-keeper money for his/her writing?

21. Do you report the money you earn from your blog on your taxes?

Who earns money from blogging? Sign me up! And yes, if I ever did earn money, I'd report it on my tax return. (I work for my brother-in-law during tax season. He's an accountant.)

22. Is blogging narcissistic?
Depends on the author I suppose. Staring in the mirror for hours is narcissistic, and I suppose my blog is a little like a mirror of my life, but it's just a snapshot, not a full picture.

23. Do you feel guilty when you don’t post for a long time?

24. Do you like John Mayer?
Sorry don't know who that is.

25. Do you have enemies?
No, not any human ones, anyway, that I know of!

28. Favorite Blog-keeping tip

Write with an audience in mind--don't just spew anything that comes to mind. Although stream of consciousness writing is sometimes fun and can even be interesting reading. Try not to be intentionally offensive--humor is often the best way to make a point.


Happy Birthday Cheri!

Today is my (older) sister Cheri's birthday! She is starting her day off with a bang (see her blog), but when I talked to her things were settling down. Apparently her son, my nephew (obviously) received a concussion during a soccer game and was taken to the hospital. He is fine, thankfully, but it wasn't till this morning that Cheri found out exactly what happened and even where he was.

We got an e-mail from Mark, and they are now in Rome. They didn't know where they would be staying, but apparently they got some help from people working at the train station who even called around for them. They are now at a nice hostel which is relatively inexpensive and best of all has free internet. I'm hoping to catch him online sometime. They have been touring Rome and seeing lots of places--the coliseum was next on their list.

The colors are lovely around her, but it's been pretty windy so the leaves are falling fast from the trees. I'm hoping to dig up my irises today (thanks for the tips Cheri!) and I think this might be the last warm day for awhile. Winter's a-comin'!

Till next time,

I survived

I survived the trip back and forth to St. Cloud yesterday with the three volleyball girls. The first challenge was getting them to agree to listening to my radio station (my rule--the driver picks--must prevail). One girl wanted to stop at home to pick up her MP3 player, but since I was driving, my rule eventually won. She did have her CD player and listened to that. Eventually they started talking to each other so I could have my music in relative peace.

But the game was really exciting and close. And for the first time in Calvin Christian High School history (drum roll please), the girls volleyball team won a match! Hurray! To celebrate one of the parents offered to buy the girls ice cream. We ended up at Arby's at 7 pm, and everybody was really hungry. So, he (the parent) bought them all shakes and I got the girls (the ones that rode with me anyway) meals.

I figured that I would miss my Bible study which started at 7 in the Twin Cities. By the time we finished eating and dropped off the first girl it was 8:50 (my study ended at 9). We finally got home around 9:30. Whew.

Today work went well--it was a little quiet as only two faculty were in the office. I had a question for IT about wireless internet in my office, and a few minutes after I placed my call Matt showed up. Matt is our son Luke's age and they were good friends in our former church. Matt's a junior at Bethel and a supervisor already on the IT team. He got word of my report and had to stop to see if it was really me--guess he had somehow missed my picture on the Bethelnet and on the door of Human Resources. It was great to see him. I still have to look up some other students whose parents are good friends of ours.

Now the weekend is here. I'm hoping for good weather--maybe I will finally divide my irises. Does anyone know how to do this--I think you have to divide the bulb or root itself to make it work. I think my sister Cheri told me this. Perhaps I'll ask her when I call her BECAUSE TOMORROW IS HER BIRTHDAY! :)

Till next time,

Driving Miss Crazy

Today is Christina's volleyball game in St. Cloud. I need to be at school 30 minutes before regular pick up time to insure they get to the game by 5 pm. Still, I think I've got lots of time to get things done.

However--my glucometer is on the blink. I'm out of one of my medications, so I need a trip to the pharmacy to get my prescription and possibly a new battery. Then later I discover my glucometer works slightly after I take the battery out and put it in again. But it is still a little goofy. Hmmm. Well, I should have a back-up battery anyway in case this happens again when I'm not at home--or not going to be at home for awhile.

I need to make a doctor's appointment for my flu shot and check up after my summer surgery. And, I should check to see when my dentist appointment is scheduled for. I've already changed my eye appointment for a day when I'm off work, so I'm good.

I want to make pizza muffins because they travel well and I can have some home here for Tim tonight when he gets home. Also, I should get a map book because Tim says I should have one in my car anyway. I also need to get gas and pay the credit card bill at the mall today.

I've joined a book club so I should start reading the book I picked up yesterday.

There's another part-time job available on campus, so I need to update my resume and send it in to HR.

So, when I get everything done, I'll be ready to drive 4-5 teenage girls 120 miles or more round trip this afternoon; half of this trip will be when they are tired, hungry and sweaty after a volleyball game. Hopefully we won't be dealing with PMS on top of it.

I will keep you posted on my sanity quotient tomorrow.

Till next time,

Mark is in Venice!

We got a call last night from Mark's friend's Dad, and today it was confirmed via e-mail--Mark and his friend John are in Venice! His e-mail was short (he said it was expensive) but he promised to email again when they arrive in Rome. They had a good time in Germany at John's grandma's house--spent a lot of time riding bikes I guess. So, he is safe and sound!

I'm already racing this morning--back and forth to Christina's school with items she forgot--guess it's nice to know I'm still needed for some things! Last night's volleyball game was fun, even during a tornado watch (no significant weather close by, though) and tomorrow our commute will be over an hour one way to St. Cloud. Christina's got a game in Wisconsin next Friday, but otherwise the games are within 30 minutes, I think. Well, it's fun to go cheer them on and to get to know the other parents a little better.

I've been to the pharmacy and bank, and now I'm going to stop in the bookstore on my way to work. No volleyball today, so it should be a relaxing evening at home!

Till next time,

It's purty round here

It's been a glorious couple of days here--feeling more like early September than October. Leaves and bushes are exploding in color--some losing their leaves to make a colorful carpet.

Meanwhile, Christina's been playing with her school team--indoors. Ah well, at least the away games are usually half an hour away, so we can enjoy a beautiful ride to and from. Tonight's game, however, will probably be played during a thunderstorm. We're hoping for a win, though so far the team hasn't won a complete match yet. They do play their hearts out, though.

Well, I better get crackin' around here. Plenty to do on my day off--laundry, grocery shopping, reading, vacuuming, etc.... Oh, by the way, I have a "regular" schedule now--Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. So Tuesday and Thursday are my "play" days....

Till next time,
