Random Stuff...again...

Sorry for the "Random" blogs...we are still in limbo between our temp house and new one. My computer is packed up and in storage, so I'm blogging from my laptop in my office. Our builder is saying next week we should be closing and then moving in! Exciting stuff there!

Well, Thanksgiving is almost here...we'll be going up to Holly's mom and dad's tonight and then tomorrow head to mom's for the rest of the day and night. Thanksgiving with my family is always a pretty big deal...we'll have lots of aunt's and uncles, cousins, etc. and of course loads of food. The day will consist of visiting, eating, watching football, eating, playing cards, eating, a little guitar picking with the picker's, and eating some more! A great day...

Last weekend I took the leap and bought my latest gadget. This is a gadget that I've been talking about for awhile now...just ask Holly. I got me a 30GB video iPod and it is stinking awesome. I've been a downloading fool...cramming this bad boy full of music...and videos! Of course I had to see if the hype of the video was everything they were I downloaded "Remember the Titans." Cool stuff! My goal is to max this baby out. By the way I got the sleek looking black one.

The house is officially sold...we spent our last night on Thursday. Kinda weird...we were all sharing our "favorites" while in the was good to reminisce.

Our new home is about a week away from being complete, so we are in a "temp home" that our builder owns. We have just the bare bones necessities...kinda feels like camping with a roof over your head!

Random stuff...

What a busy week it's been...lots of stuff going's an update...

-We are preparing to close on our old house this coming this weekend we've been doing the packing thing. Good night you don't realize how much STUFF you have until you move.

-We rented one of those PODS (Portable On Demand Storage)...way cool thing that is. I had several guys come yesterday to help move the BIG things into the POD. It was like playing a big game of Tetris...we were piecing furniture together just like the game...I can't believe we got it all in there!

-Our new home is just about finished...looks pretty sharp too! We've been going out almost everyday to see the progression. Only one more major thing to the electric pole in the back...after that the rest is gravy!

-On a sour note! My dear Louisville Cardinals laid a big goose egg in the second half of the Rutgers game Thursday night. They should get a decent bowl game...but it won't be the National Championship game...maybe next year! Go Cards!

-Graduation is almost here! December 8th is the big day at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary...looking forward to the ceremony and seeing things come to a completion. My goal is to savor the whole day...only took me 16 years to get it finished (not 16 cumulative years mind you!)

-Last but not least, but most important...our son Bryan has been doing great! We've had 3 three weeks of no hospital visits, no ER visits, no missed school...and we are so thrilled. He'll have one more surgery to remove this tube...maybe over the Christmas break, but it seems we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Praise God for His faithfulness.

Mi Casa...

Everything with our new home has been going great...they are about 2 weeks or so away from being finished. We've had a ball picking out appliances, floors and ceiling fans, etc. Holly and I go check things out every other day to see what they have finished. We'll walk around talking about where things will really has been an exciting experience.

Here are some recent pics...we should be closing on our house next week and then make "da move!"

Cardinal Football

Woo-hoo! The Cards last night looked pretty stinkin' awesome against an undeafeated West Virginia. A great game all the way around! If the Cards can run the rest of their games with W's...they should be playing in the BCS Championship game...again, they should. Something tells me inside my brain that they might get the shaft!

Oh well...I'll savor this victory for awhile! Go Cards!
