we're moving folks.

not houses, just blogs.

why? cause blogger kinda makes me want to pull my hair out.

sooo...things are looking a little different over at...

come with me!
did you see the movie dan in real life? well i did, about 17 times and then i bought it and watched it another 26 times. i LOVE this movie. my most favorite thing about this movie is the family's house in Rhode Island.

well, a few months ago i decided to google the dan in real life house and do you know what? you can RENT it out! if i were rich enough to even imagine renting something for $6200 for a measly 7 days i would book this sucker!

it's so beautiful and it's tucked in the heart of coastal rhode island. if you haven't seen this movie, i suggest you go to your local blockbuster, netflix, red box, whatever and rent it.

you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll cringe a little bit but you'll love love love it. plus, it has steve carrell and you just can't go wrong with anything he's in!

"When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake. Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”Another disciple said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”But Jesus told him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

I will travel to You, Lord, through a thousand blind alleys. You want to bring me to You through stone walls. Thomas Merton

if we ourselves are free with the liberty of Christ, others will be brought into that same liberty— the liberty that comes from realizing the absolute control and authority of Jesus Christ. ozzie

i just passed my 200th post! that's a blogging milestone right?

well, here's what i've been up to lately...

um, have you seen/done this workout before?
this is the hardest, most exhausting and non stop workout i've ever done.
i'd like to think i have a good bit of stamina, but then i did this video ending it curled up in a fetal position covered in more sweat than i feel comfortable describing, asking the good lord to take me right then and there.
some of the more "subtle" symptoms of this workout that i've experienced are
1. the shakes
2. chills
3. hurling over the side of our back deck (that was lady like)
4. that fetal position i described above
5. more hurling (yep)

most of these may be caused by doing this workout outside in the hellish temperatures on our deck, but it requires a lot of moving so the deck provides the most space. after a couple minutes you want to just die anyway so the heat is really the last thing on our minds.
it's a 60 day "program" and scott and i are on day 9 and already i feel like i can do more than i could the first couple times.
also, shawn t. rocks.

doesn't this review make you want to jump up and join Shawn T. for a good little pick me up workout?

just google a little video of it.

scott is turning 24 on thursday.
he's finally catching up to me.
i am fine being a little older than him for now,
but come 49...50 is going to hurt.
he's going to milk that for all it's worth.
i can see it now.
can't wait to celebrate him.
