my boyfwend

I realize I don't really post that many pictures of my mister so heres one!  When I met Danny I went up to him, saw a cute, dark haired guy and said "Hi who are you?"  He actually laughed and was like "Danny.  Who are you?"  So I kinda got a crush on him.  I liked his voice, I liked his smile, I liked how he would laugh, and tease, and talk with me from that first conversation.  We had a long conversation about I believe 90's music (it was only 2001), and talked about some common friends we had.  I believe somehow the topic of the Fresh Prince of Bellaire came up but I don't remember.  Anyways, I didn't see him much after that first couple times.  I think we talked for a while at a dinner after church one evening, and everyone was cleaning up, and clearing out, and there we were sitting across  the table from eachother talking, not wanting to really get up and go, and I had the thought...cheezy Mormon thought here it is "I feel like I've known this guy before!  I feel like I've talked to him and been like his best friend before"  So random.  Anyways.  He worked evenings.  So I would pester his roommate Ben, "hey where is your roommate Danny?" and he would always say working.  So outside of talking to him at church and the random events it was hard to see him much more than that.  But of course, we did end up seeing each other more.  But I will leave that for another story.  Just that's my guy up there.  And he's turning 37 two days after I turn 33 in October.  Us Libra's stick together.  yessirree.

its alllliiive

my blog is still alive!  it was dead.  it locked me out for some period of time and unfortunately I didn't even care that much.  I'm sorry.  I love you blog but not that much.  Not to actually figure out why I was locked out.  Now you are back.SOooooooo

Addie started 4th grade.  She has a teacher who is a tall ice hockey player named Miss Siehl and she says she is her favorite teacher so far.  She's happy so I'm happy.

Eva started 1st grade.  The girls ride the bus together, and sit together.  I love seeing their faces wave to me from the same seat as the bus pulls away in the morning.  It's sisterly love (for the moment).  And I never hesitate to yell in a frantic mom voice from the front door "I LOVE YOU COOKIE!" 
 Eva's nickname.  I hope I can do that till she graduates.  She always gives me a dirty look.

Harvey is in the school of netflix.  It is hard to get into.  It requires 8 dollars a month and an ability to puruse through many bad 90's cartoons and made for tv movies.  He's doing pretty well so far and has found several courses (Wild Kratz, Garfield, Power Rangers) that he is doing really well at.  

Mr. Dotson is attending 5th grade for the 8th year in a row.  I hope he doesn't lose his marbles.  I don't know how long he can keep it up.  If I had to attend 5th grade that long I'd probably run away to another country and join the circus.  He's still here, so that's going well I guess. 

as for me, I'm a commitment phobe and have been running but still haven't signed up for my half marathon.  Jeff Galloway is the bomb!  he has helped my running so much.  Read Jeff Galloway.  I'm not kidding.  He will have you running more miles than you ever thought possible.  And you will feel good.  And only be running 3 days a week.  Otherwise, I've just been getting the piano calender set up for fall, taking Harvey out with me when he isn't in school (watching netflix) and trying to think of vegetarian ish dinners to feed the family. I fell off the boat for like a week and gained 5 pounds!  I seriously can't eat meat or cheese it makes me blow up.  I let the kids eat it a bit because they need to blow up, but me, no need whatsoever.
