Deal. . . or No Deal. . .?

Yes, we've taught our little "mynah bird" something new. The other night, when there was *nothing else* on TV, she and I watched an episode of "Deal or No Deal." I decided that was a prime time to teach Caroline a new trick.

She puts her two index fingers up to her mouth, and (with prompting) says, "Deal. . . or no deal?" That's right. We're teaching her the *important* virtues in life.

Okay -- and this is not just for Bethie -- but can you resist this face? I can't.

Let's see. . . in the rest of our world. . . the new (potential) pastor spoke in church this morning. He did a very commendable job (which sounds like a nice way of saying it was merely passable). WRONG. He did a *very* commendable job.

As one of the lucky individuals who gets to sit through both sermons, I was duly impressed that his message --although very similar -- was different each service. Same outline. Same scriptures. Same talking points. But, it was different. It reflected the crowd that was in the room. That always impresses me. So, we wait and see, but I am hopeful that I have met my new boss. And, I like him.

This weekend was kind of odd--and it's not over, yet. I got a few of the things done that I wanted to accomplish, but there are still things on the "to-do" list that I'd like to cross off before calling it a weekend. When I'm finished posting this, I intend to upload pictures to Walgreen's for printing. They're running a half-price special right now. . . I like sales. Have I ever mentioned that?

Other than that, I'm working on an afghan for my cousin's baby that is due the end of this month. I'm on the border -- so I'm nearly done. I've also got a holiday letter to write. This year, we're "kickin' it" like the Swithers family, and doing a New Year's letter. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that my last six weeks have been so crazy it was nearly impossible to squeeze in time to write Christmas letters. (Maybe next year)

So, other than trying to stay warm. . . it's not really cold here, but I'm chilly today. . .I'm going to try and get a few things done on this day of rest. I'm still trying to figure ways to incorporate my word for the year. . . SIMPLIFY. . . into my life. I've got a couple of ideas. But nothing definite, yet.

Have a wonderful Sunday! Enjoy a football game, if that's your thing. I keep switching back to it --just to see how the NY Giants are doing. The TN Titans are playing later on this afternoon, I believe. I'll keep an eye on that game--just to see. But, for some odd reason, this girl (like her son) is a Colts fan. I don't think I have a secret crush on Peyton Manning or anything. I just like the Colts.

See ya!!

I think your Peyton Manning crush isn't such a secret...I've seen that name mentioned more than a time or two before on this here blog! heehee

BTW it's raining here. Yep, pouring buckets. How bizarre. Maybe some early spring flowers will start to sprout through the three feet of snow. ::Sigh::

Any chance you could capture Miss C on video saying Deal Or No Deal? 'Cause the pictures are tremendous but having some audio to accompany the visual would rock even more!

Ya know, one day your future boss will be your current boss. He'll find out about your blog. He'll read this blog entry. He'll storm into your office accusing you of being a suck-up. He'll toss a fifty-dollar Starbucks gift card in your face and leave an autographed Peyton Manning photo on your desk. He'll demand that you spend no more than 75% of your time surfing the web and writing similar blog posts.

Yeah, that'll teach you!
