Weekend update

Sorry no links today. If that's what you're interested you might as well move on to the next blog.

I updated the title of my blog. It was a joke from a conversation I had over lunch this past Sunday. I forget what prompted the comment, but it still seems funny. There are a lot of jokes I have like that.

On Saturday I watched the football games while my wife went to see Brokeback Mountain for a second time. The Redskins game was great. They didn't deserve to win, but I'm glad they did.

Sunday brought the Steelers to victory. They weren't clicking at first but by the end of the 3rd quarter they had the Bengals on the ropes and didn't look back.

Broncos - Patriots scares me. The Patsies are playing really well right now, and the Broncos have a propensity to get blown out in the playoffs. Saturday is my birthday so hopefully the football Gods will smile upon me.

This week our company is hosting it's annual world wide conference. It's a week of meetings, goal setting, and overall setting the tempo for the year. It's all the week that we close out 2005 financially. Needless to say, it's going to be a stressful and long week for me. Thankfully I have Shayna.

I don't want to wax poetic to much about how great she is (because she is) but today she has gone the second mile. Knowing that I was going to be coming home late and stressed, she cleaned the apartment, made banana bread, and took me out to dinner at Villa Bella (a local italian restaurant). Normally just coming home and giving her a hug and kiss just brightens my day. This just made it all the more. Even though she had a stressful tiring day of her own, she decided to make the evening all about me.

That's what makes marriage great folks. When you are tired you have someone there to hold you up.

    For the record, I feel really bad about the way the Steelers won. I feel really bad for Carson Palmer and now everyone will doubt our talent, even if we make it to the big dance. I'm going to keep not talking smack about this and maybe they'll actually get to the Super Bowl this year.

    Of course, dear, you're wonderful too and I'm so blessed to have a calming and balancing force like you in my life. Thanks for making me a better person. I love you!!

  2. It cracks me up that you actually adopted that phrase for your blog title. That's AWESOME! I don't remember what prompted it either, but you're right - it's still funny.

  3. I remember what prompted it and I can't believe Carl is using it. That is so offensive . . . to someone. ;-)
