Oh what fun

Sometimes I get super nostalgic. Mainly because certain times in my past were super fun. In fact, they were super fun most of the time. Some of these times were captured on video. Not all of the times, that would be impossible, but just tiny glimpses of the past. Like this gem:

I realize that this may seem like nothing to a lot of people. But I am pretty sure that for the people in the video, this little video brings back a lot of good memories from a really really funny time. I loved living with these girls, and do not be fooled, living with a boy---whom I love and would never in a bagillion years change roomies---- is in no way the same thing. We still have funny times. **think GUMBY** But if you are in college. . . or just out of college. . . . you should live with girls who you plan on being friends with forever (and ever and ever and ever and ever).

In other news, Zach is currently writing a 10 page paper. It's due Sunday evening. Right about now he should be on his 5th page. But that's just a guess. He is in the computer lab typing/thinking/being a genius. You might be wondering why he is working on his paper right now since it is due Sunday evening. Because you know Zach, and you know that he enjoys/ends up writing his papers at the very last moment. Works best under pressure? He is writing now because WE are going to D.C. TOMORROW to meet up with MY PARENTS!! YAYYY I am so dang excited. Perhaps I will video a bit from this weekend, because it's going to be filled with laughs and good times.

More random: My friend Victor being awesome. . . sorry you can't see him that well .. . . but he sounds AWESOME!

hermmm what else. I am currently reading through The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. Not so great. There are way more boring/slow parts than good. I am determined to finish it because I paid for it. The Help is next and I am super excited.

Love you and miss you all.

Things that are awesome:

Thing #1. Zach and I woke up this morning at 6am and headed out to enjoy a 3 mile walk with one another. It was cold and lovely outside.

Thing #2. While we were walking we saw a woman (presumably the mother) jogging with her 6 and 7 year old children. I don't actually know how old these kids were. . . . but they looked real tiny.

Thing #3. Going to Stewarts for chili dogs and a root beer float on Sunday afternoon with Zach.

Thing #4. The video that was recorded on the drive to Stewarts. I'm a safe driver.

Nothing exciting has happened and there is no news. However, I am going to post something because I'm tired of being told I don't post enough.
Recently I learned that one of the woman I work with collects American Girl dolls. Which you might think, "OK, kind of odd for a full grown woman to collect dolls but it happens." However, this woman calls her dolls her "children." She baths them, cuts their hair, and changes their clothes. She has been known to say things like, "Well, I've got to go home and give the kids a bath." Yes, she is married and as far as I know, the husband is fine with his wife's adopted children. To top off the obsession, there is a cork board above the desk where everyone keeps pictures of their kids. Among all the human children there is a picture of 6 doll-children sitting on a staircase smiling for their proud momma. Interesting eh?

Zach has been super busy with school and his field education. He can post about that whenever he wants to. I know I wouldn't do it justice.

ALSO! I completely slacked on posting about a crazy awesome gift that Zach received from our good friends Eric and Ruth. the Zachionfigure (sorry if I spelled that wrong.)

I know, super impressive. Plaid shirt, thick beard, hairy hands, chests, and arms. . . . couldn't have been more on point. This is just one of the many reasons why we enjoy our friends Ruth and Eric.

We are planning on going to D.C. for Rally to Restore Sanity. To be honest though, the only reason we are going is to meet up with my pops! He is going to be riding his motorcycle up from Tampa. Crazy man. He's stopping along the way so that's good. We are really excited to see Dad and even more excited that we get to spend the whole weekend with him. At some crazy rally. I will be sure to take pictures of all the rally-ness.

That is all. Love you and miss you all.

So I couldn't sleep this morning. I woke up at 5am. Which was no good. I watched a bit of TV because I was really bored and I knew that Zach wouldn't want to wake up and play. . . . .and then I got on my computer.

Which is where this came from.

Love you and miss you all.
