Pacers Game

Derek and I went to the Pacers game Friday night. We got to watch from one of the suites. Derek also got to be the "honorary" score keeper. He even got to go out to the center court! It was pretty cool. I'm glad he didn't run off with the game ball =)

At the suite watching the game.

Derek waiting to be taken out to the center court.

There he is....getting to hold the game ball. They told us we will get a copy of the official photo that was taken of him. We'll see if we actually get one....but we'll be sure to post it if we get it!

Snow Day

We had 12 1/2 inches of snow school was canceled. No work for me today!! However I will probably have to go to work tomorrow, so I had to make sure I could get out of the driveway. Time to go grab a shovel and tackle some snow (where is my husband when I need him)!

All bundled up to go outside. Thanks Dad for this furry hat!!

Derek's car all covered with snow.

After about an hour of shoveling I got this much done (in front of the garage door and around to the driveway). My arms wanted to fall off, I was sweating like a pig and I wanted to collapse.

Luckily, the boy next door saw me and offered to use their snow blower and finish the driveway for me. Thank the Lord!! He got this done in no time!

I had to post this! It may be the only time someone recognizes me for what I do at work. Teachers at my school pass on mini-trophies each month to another teacher to recognize work they do at school. I have never gotten one, since I am the speech-language pathologist. Speech-language pathologists at schools can sometimes not be recognized for what they do. I guess you can say people don't consider us "real" teachers, and we can often be ignored. Anyways, I actually got one this month!! I was shocked and surprised. It was so nice that someone appreciated what I do for students =)

With a Name Like Smucker's, It Has to Be Good

We visited Smucker's in Orrville, Ohio (also home of Bobby Knight) today. There is a café inside that serves toasted PB&J.

Smucker's also owns other popular brands like Jif, Crisco, Eagle Brand and Pillsbury. Here we are with Poppin' Fresh.

Auld Lang Syne

Happy New Year!

(Barenaked Ladies, 12/31/2008)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

And here's the hand, my trusty friend
And gives a hand of thine
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.
