Thought I should check in before the madness begins and you don’t see me again for awhile. It is officially six days before my GREAT STRIDES Walk. Please pray for good weather and $68,000 to magically appear out of nowhere!!! I have to work three weekends in a row for events I’m in charge of. But after that, I’ll get a bit of a break. June is jam-packed with showers and weddings though. But that’s fun stuff so no bother there.
Really, we should have been moved into our house by now but the floors are holding us up. Grrrr. This weekend Naaman and Michael ripped up the carpet and tile in the front room so the people can refinish our floors. There is a “slight” problem since I guess there used to be walls that separated the living and dining rooms. Nothing that another $700 can’t fix though. Ugh. The good thing is everyone keeps telling us it will be VERY worth it. Well, it had better be gosh darn it. Connie and Neil came down to see the inside of the house and they both really liked it. Everyone seems to like it. It is a sweet little home.
Naaman and I attended the Tiger Ball, for MU Alumni, at the Hyatt on Friday night. No, neither of us are MU Alumni, but my sister and her Husband planned almost the entire event so we went in support of them. I must say, I whole-heartedly enjoy getting dolled up and going to fancy parties. I should have been a celebrity walking on red carpets. A girl can dream . . .
Jan Carl from Entertainment Tonight was there since she is an MU Alum. We also ran into our veterinarian who asked us how our precious puppy is doing. She’s doing better than ever, thanks to him!
On Sunday, we went to go hang out with our friends Ryan and Rebecca and see their new house out in Lee’s Summit. They gave us the grand tour and showed us the baby’s future nursery (they’re expecting their first child in July). I am really excited for them and think that they will be very good, very fun parents. She is such a cutie pie pregnant woman. We all went to have pizza and see the movie Disturbia. It was a good movie but the beginning scene with the car accident really upset me and the tears just poured out of nowhere. I did not expect to have that kind of reaction, but after being in my car accident, I am just really sensitive about that subject I guess. First it was my accident, then Naaman’s, then Connie’s, then my Dad’s. It’s just too much for me to watch right now and all those emotions just came out. But the rest of the movie was good so it made up for it.
Well, bye for now. Cross your fingers that all my events are a big success.
