okay, I am doing this because even though I don't think of myself as superstitious, I have 666 posts, so I gotta put one more on here.

Things are going okay. Life goes by day by day. Weird huh? I have had a couple days go by that I don't cry missing my Dad. That is good right?

My new job at work is going well. I really enjoy it and hope to continue loving it!

Siobhan's birthday is on the 31st. She will be FIVE. I can't believe it. We are going to have a birthday party for her in a few weeks (we are still working on the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom). She is such a beautiful big girl. She fills our hearts with love each and everyday. I wish you could be here for her birthday Nan! Dad, I wish you could be here too!

Bloggers help needed

My friend from sent me a book from a girl who is doing a school project. You are supposed it fill it out about your family and the area you live in. I can't get anyone to respond to me to send it to. It needs to be filled out and then sent to someone else in another state. Anyone want to help out with this? Please?!

I am ready to kick some grass

Okay, Andrea. I was trying to hold it in but you asked for it!

As you all probably know, Beckham has joined the LA Galaxy. What does that mean to you? Probably nothing. What does it mean to people around here? Those that have NO interest whatsoever in soccer will be flooding to the soccer games JUST to see Beckham. People who have probably never even watched a game on TV. What does that mean for me? Okay let me tell you.

It means, I probably won't get my seats. You see, we have had season tickets to the Galaxy for about four years now. We enjoy the Galaxy games as a family. When Nan (our exchange student from Thailand was here, we took her too!). We never miss a game. Our seats are great. We have gotten to know the people who sit behind us. We talk to the people in front of us. I LOVE my seats. My seats have "suddenly" gotten more expensive. Okay, we expected that. We already talked about how much more we would pay and how important it is to us. In a season, there are roughly 20 home games. We get the half season, one- some of the games are during the week and we can't make it there in time, and two- we get 5 seats, a full season is too much money.

So, big deal you say. So you have to pay more. pfftt, of course, it is Beckham. He is a great soccer player, he is hot and well, they are paying him all that money, they have to get it back somehow. Well, the problem is this. They are selling LOTS of season tickets. They sold something like 2500 that first day it was announced. Hmm, so guess what. They probably will not offer the half season. The ticket guy says, "Well, why not get a full season, it is Beckham after all". Oh, okay. Well hell, it is Beckham, so I guess that means I don't have to worry about how much money I spend. I mean, hmm, 5 seats, about $2500. A bit more than we were thinking.

I am just bummed. I mean we have been there through good and bad. We were there before they won the cup. We were there supporting them. Yelling! And now, we have been forgotten. It is supposed to be a family thing. They have done away with the "children" tickets (which were only a few dollars cheaper anyway) and now there might not be a half season. Well, aren't we screwed. The Galaxy was our outings. We go to Mexico and we go to Galaxy games. We have a cousin who WILL NOT invite us over for the 4th of July because we never go, we are always at a Galaxy game. Every year!

Beckham, I am glad you are coming. I think it will be a great thing if you bring more people into the joy of soccer. I am sure it will happen. But I am oh so sad for those of us who can't quite afford you.

Stolen from Eric's Flickr page, this is a ring of ice in our fountain from last night. It was taken at about 10am this morning. We are actually wearing sweatshirts. I have found myself saying "I'm cold" quite a few times. I am never cold!

Apple iPhone

Okay, even if you saw the news, you have to check out the new iPhone. I have included the link. Make sure you click on the different objects on the top right of the screen once you have viewed everything on this page. This phone is way more then a phone or an iPod. I totally want one. Amazing. I am so glad we own Apple stock!

Okay click me, click me!

What? Oh, hello!

wow. I can't believe how fast time is passing us by. Sometimes we allow it to just run us over. Sometimes we take control of it and make it do what we want. Most of the time, we are so busy with day to day things that we allow it to sneak by. Scary.

Siobhan will be turning 5 on the 31st! Where did 5 years go? I just don't get it. I don't know how she got so big. Everyday we tell her to stay small. She wants nothing to do with it. She wants to get big. She wants to go to school. I treasure those cuddle times and pray they never end.

Hopefully this year will be wonderful for everyone. Maybe, just maybe, there will be peace. Peace in the world. Peace in homes and neighborhoods. Peace in my heart and head.

Here is to wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!
