Birthday Weekend

I had the best birthday! We went to Chicago for the (4 day) weekend! We had amazing food...we are really wishing Indy would take more pride in their culinary skills. Also, Jon got me fun presents.
1) Key to better blogging- a digital camera
2) A shopping trip for dress clothes (Apparently "You don't have the essentials"-Jon)
3) Couples salsa dancing lessons

Here are some fun pix from the weekend.

Mug shot

Megan ended up photo shopping the Christmas pic of the boys to go on a mug for my dad. This is the finished product. It's a running Shetler family theme to give my dad a mug every year with a picture of his grandson. Since these are the only kids Megan and I have they are goin on the mug.

Sunday morning.

Jon left Buckley and I early this morning to go skiing in CO for the week. Boo. Buckley and I decided to keep up with the Sunday morning routine to make ourselves feel not too lonely. We got up and walked into town for starbucks. One small oversite- when I got there I realized I was missing the necessary second person to stay outside with the dog while the other person goes in to order. So I did the only thing left to do and let some complete strangers watch my dog while I got the goods. I am the worst mom ever.

Now I am sitting at the kitchen table eating an egg and toast and Buckley has positioned himself two rooms away but so that he can still sit and stare at me from afar. What a stalker. But on a day like today it feels good to be stalked by someone even if it is my dog.

tough christmas

Christmas has been tough on the strands. We have contracted some brand of black lung and recovery is slow and long and some days non existent. I am starting to stress about going back to school on Monday and having to function. Right now my only goals are to sleep, eat, and watch tv. On a positive note here are somethings I am looking forward to in '09.

-Getting better
-the return of LOST!
-turning 29
-possibility of some home improvement projects
-finishing my masters
-Buckley turns 1!
