Last week, I had a rabbit run out in front of me on two separate days, in almost the exact same spot. The same rabbit! Isn't that strange? The first time was a very close call. I was very close to home. I was just getting up a little speed after stopping at the stop sign and this rabbit dashed out in front of me. I am sure that if someone had taken a picture of my face, it would have been comical. I only had time to take my foot off the gas, and open my mouth hugely as if to scream and suck in breath. I didn't see him go across the street on the other side of my truck, but I didn't feel the inevitable bump I would have felt if I had hit him. I don't know how I missed him. Lucky rabbit. Then, the stupid thing ran (a little farther) out in front of me to cross the road two days later! I mean, it's not like there's a lot of traffic on this road...

Anyway. Weird.

So, I haven't been posting as regularly as I used to. This is mainly because I have been working a lot. I get to work at about 7 every day and usually don't leave until about 6ish (which means I am gone from my house from about 6:15am to 7:15pm every day), unless I have somewhere to go like Small Group. Obviously I'm not getting home early on those days either. Then, usually when I get home I have been having things I had to get done for various responsibilities I have. Our company is traded publicly and that means we have to file a 10-K each year with the SEC. With a 10-K, there really aren't "extensions". (Well, I think you can file an extension but it's only for a few days, I think so why bother.)

Two Fridays ago, Scott and I went to the Fox to watch the new James Bond movie Quantum of Solace. I liked it, but there were a few pretty confusing scenes. I had to work late so we missed the sing-along with the Might Mo so I was kind of bummed about that and felt guilty.

Scott's dad's birthday was Jan. 31, so we went to Provino's with his parents and Grandma for his birthday. I love Provino's. And, it's the perfect place to go for your birthday because you get your meal free.

Saturday morning I went with some girlfriends to see the movie Bride Wars. I wanted to see it but I was not 100% sure it would be a great movie. But, it turned out to be really good. I actually cried during this movie.

We went to an awesome Super Bowl party at our friends Rob and Cheryl's house, like we have for many years now. It was a lot of fun. We (the ladies) didn't really pay any attention to the game until about the last 5 minutes, so it was great for me. I do feel the need to go online now and catch up on the commercials that I missed though.

Scott is staying pretty busy as well because he is kind of picking up my slack at home since I am working so late.

Our house is still for sale. We have not had many people come to look at the house lately. We are going to have to go through each room this week and really do some cleaning up because we have kind of let ourselves slide. Scott told me that he heard the housing market might start picking up a very small amount, so we want to be ready in case it does.

We finally got our Christmas present to ourselves: an SLR camera. I absolutely can't figure out how to take a good picture with it. I am going to have to read the manual to be able to take a picture with the flash successfully. Somehow the red eye reducer is always on and it turns into a strobe light and by the time the picture snaps, the cats have already turned away or run off. I can't blame them really. Anyway, wish us luck!

Sorry I don't have any good pictures, but maybe next time. I am at work right now, so there really aren't any available. Plus, we just haven't really taken a lot lately.
