Ryan's Birthday!!!

As everyone knows I'm sure, today is Ryan's 27th birthday. With the approaching winter storm I am not sure what we will be doing. I am pretty sure that I will have to cancel musical practice, so I will be home early. I am hoping the weather will be decent enough to go to Water City Grill. Ryan and I love to go for date night, but we don't get there very often. Those are the plans for tonight.

I was hoping we would do some sort of cake and celebration deal this weekend for his birthday, but he has decided to forgo that this year. I will probably still make a cake because he loves frosting so much...Oh wait... that's me.

We decided not to get each other gifts this year too, but I still got him something. I will post later what it is just in case he reads this. It is not very exciting, but I think he will like it. I tried to find him a gun for the Wii, not the blaster but a hand gun, but you need to order those online. Thankfully the third place I went told me this; it could have been a long night otherwise.

It's about 17 days until the musical and we are not ready. I know we will have enough time, but it still gets me a little stressed. I am not too bad... no twitching eye or anything. I am to the point where whatever happens happens. The kids are having a really good time, and I think that is the important thing. We have a cool new voice altering machine that we are using for the girl who plays the alien Zombina, so that helps a lot. There is still quite a ways to go.

I am still working on the pictures to upload on here. I should take some pics of musical practice to include too. I will hopefully get those up before the weekend.

I hope everyone has a nice week!

A Sad Day in Title Town

Yes, last night was a horrible night. The Packers lost... It will be hard to recover, but I know we will be able to pull through!

If you were wondering what is big in news right now in Wisconsin...that about sums it up. I am sure this will be the number one news story for awhile.

Ryan and I had Pam and Dick, Jay and Linda, Chris, and Alexis over last night to watch the game. Like normal we had way too much food. Even though we lost, it was still a good time.

The schedule this week in Omro is looking pretty good, so Ryan is happy about that. He leaves this Thursday for an Optometric conference in Las Vegas. He is meeting up with Joel. I laughingly reminded him that what happens in Vegas does NOT stay in Vegas! I don't think I have to worry!

I will update later about the musical...aka the event that is making me pull my hair out. Also, I haven't talked with Danny yet about the update, so no new news yet!

Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!

I thought this blogging thing would be easy and that I would have no problem keeping up with it. Man was I wrong! I am going to make an honest effort to keep updating this to stay in better contact with the family.

Life is crazy right now. The second office in Omro opened last week. Everything is going well, but there is a lot of stress still. There have been problems with the computers, things not in when they should have been... at this rate Ryan will have gray hair by the time he is 27 (which is in nine days!).

School is going well. I am working with the kids to be ready for the musical next month. It is going to be February 14th-16th. Happy birthday to me! The musical is called Zombies from the Beyond. It is a very quirky musical. The kids are just driving me nuts right now with their singing. There were a couple days this week when I felt like I was listening to the American Idol reject episode. I am hoping it will all come together.

I am pretty sure the next time Ryan and I will be taking a trip will be for my Spring Break. If things are crazy still at the office I may be taking a solo trip. I think we will be going to Toledo from about the 15th of March until the 19th. I would love to go for a longer time, but there is always so much I need to get done at school.

Our friends Andrew and Nicole had a beautiful baby girl last Saturday morning. Her name is Madeline, Maddie for short. She is so cute. People usually say babies are always cute, but she is especially cute. She looks like a little doll. Ryan will pretty much not put her down whenever we see them. I have decided that when we have a baby I will only see the baby when s/he is feeding, because Ryan will always be holding him/her. It is really cute.

I will try to keep you up-to-date from now on!

Stay tuned for information about Danny's potential love interest... I need to make sure with him that it is okay to share. Do I have you hooked?
