Here are a few things I've been meaning to blog about for quite awhile.
** National Championship - I haven't blogged about Ohio State losing to LSU. It was a hard loss. At least we played a little better this year than last year. It was still very hard. The worst part was that I bet my boss, Kim, on the game. I ended up having to wear a LSU shirt to work one day. Everyone was making fun of me....but a bet is a bet. :) (there, Kim, I blogged about it - are you happy now???) :)
** Book Reviews - I asked for ideas for books to read on vacation back in November. I first read "The Glass Castle" OH MY GOSH - what an amazing book!!! I highly recommend it. "Three Cups of Tea"- this one was harder for me to read, but was still a really good book. People like that are amazing to me. I can't believe that someone has the guts to do what he did. I can't quite give you a review of "Eat, Pray, Love" yet as I'm still reading it - but so far I LOVE it!!!!
** New Job (ok, Kim, don't freak out!!) - I have a new job, although it's not replacing my old job. I've recently been hired by my church to be the Music Director. What that means is that I am the choir director (and I accompany the choir), play piano for church, and help plan the worship services. I've been fighting this for about 6 months. I've been praying about it for a long time. I didn't know what to do. I finally asked God to reveal to me what He wanted me to do - and boy did I hear it loud and clear. :) I'm excited about my new position, but it is a lot of work.
** I'm getting too old!! - I've never been a big partyer. Even in college - if we didn't do it by midnight - I didn't do it because I was going to bed!! And, as I revealed in a previous post, I didn't drink until my 21st birthday. Friday night I went out with co-workers and stayed out until 2:30 am. I had a good time (stopped drinking at 9:30) and haven't done that since Alex has been home. Boy - did I pay for it the rest of the weekend - and it wasn't because of the alcohol (because I really didn't drink that much). We went to Howl at the Moon (dueling piano bar) - lots of singing - lots of dancing - and very little sleep. Yikes - I feel old!!!
