It's been a while...

Hey everybody!
Sorry that it's been a while, I have been SO busy. Which is a good thing because when I am busy I don't realize quite as much that I'm alone. Have I mentioned that I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL DEC. 17th???

Last weekend, I took a trip to Hoover, Alabama and saw Kyle's aunt & uncle and 2 cousins. We had so much fun! We went for a hike, watched some good football, and ate some AWESOME homemade food thanks to Lydia. The whole family got to Skype with Kyle. I think he enjoyed seeing them! I appreciate that you had me there!!! Can't wait to go down again!

This weekend I went to Katy & Stephen's house in Buckhead (a suburb of Atlanta). We did lots of shopping (and probably spent too much money) and watched Clemson dominate. Friday night, we went to the Marist high school football game. Katy's next door neighbor's son, Penn, plays for them and they are in the playoffs. They won & Penn scored several touchdowns. It was fun to watch & we got to eat yummy (but greasy) food from The Varsity...similar to The Beacon on the scale of greasiness for my South Carolinians. This weekend, Stephen's cousin John Michael got engaged so everyone went out last night. It was fun to see Katy's friends and a couple of Stephen's cousins. However, it made me miss Kyle SOOOOO much because everyone was there with their significant other/fiance/husband/wife. Oh well, I survived the night without tears, so it was a success! On the way home, I stopped and got Turtle Chex Mix to make myself feel better. yummmm, highly suggest it as a pick-me-up!!!!

On a semi-random note, just a personal recommendation for singles, people dating, engaged folks, or old married hags (jk). You should watch the sermons from Perry Noble at www.newspring.cc (click on the current series button). Perry has a way with words and makes his messages very entertaining. He is the reason that I am still awake tonight at 11:30pm, which is impressive. I have been watching one of them online & I am about to die laughing. However, it is a serious thing. With the divorce rate like it is, I think we all could use a little counseling in this department.

Of course I have to post about Bowen..I mean how could I not? So, Clay was home this weekend (and of course, I wasn't) but he was telling me that Bowen was being quite the character at Grandma's daycare. He stays at Randy & Julie's house (Kyle's parents) if I am away for the weekend and their dogs do not come in side. For Pete's sake, they have a farm to roam on, what do they need with the indoors?! So anyway, Bowen has an obsession with tennis balls (quite honestly, there is no actual word to describe his infatuation with these lime green objects) and Julie is such a great Grandma to him that she frequently replenishes his supply when he loses them or eats them to pieces. Clay said that he was crying and carrying on in the carport and they came out to find that SIX of his balls were stuck under a bench. So, being the good people that they are, the lay down and get them out for him. Well, Randy was working on something inside and had the door to the carport open into the house. So, whenever Bowen got a ball stuck under the bench again (which I think he partially does on purpose) he was inviting himself in and standing in the house until someone came out and helped him get his ball. He's not spoiled or anything. Then, he must've realized that that was not a great idea, so he would just come stand inside WITH the ball until someone came out to throw it to him. Smart dog, I tell ya. Anyway, I was so glad to see him when I got home today & the poor boy has been sleeping pretty much steadily since 4:30pm when I got home. They tired him out well!!

As far as Kyle, there are so many funny stories. I think I will post again this week with a "funny kyle stories" post. There, I have given you all something to look forward to!!......

Sleep tight everyone (except Kyle - have a good rest of the day at work).
Love, Jen
