Did anyone get the make and model of that truck?

It's been a little over five weeks since i started dragging my tired old bones out of bed at 5:45 to get out the door to the gym. I wouldn't say it's definitely a habit yet, but i am enjoying it more. Yesterday though i was bone tired. Saturday the church i go to had a youth trip planned to King's Dominion, but late the week before it was in danger of being canceled. Not wanting DS1 to be disappointed i called up our Youth Pastor (the one who said he didn't have a 'passion' for the middle schoolers) and told him I would like to help drive, or do something to save the trip. Long story short we found six adults willing to drive and chaperon and made the trip. It was a long, hot, day - but a good time was had by all. Sunday my poor beloved was still suffering from a kidney stones. I have never (so far) had them so I cannot quite relate to what she is going through, but i can tell she is not a real happy camper. I have been encouraging her to relax and just work on getting through this (call doctors, etc.). The end result has been me picking up a little bit extra to do. She feels terrible, but to be honest, i would rather her get through this thing and feel better, then to make it last longer and feel miserable. Besides, the medication the doctors put her on make her sleepy, irritable, and down right miserable anyway. She has a follow up appointment with a urologist this afternoon. Yesterday i woke up beat-dead-tired. It didn't help that i had stayed up WAY too late Sunday night trying to spend time with my beloved, but i forced myself up and to the gym anyway. By the time I got to work I was so fatigued that i was actually trembling slightly. I was considering going home and getting back into bed but the day had other plans. By the time i had a moment to update my little blog here i just couldn't get up the motivation. So my apologies dear readers. "Music Monday" will return to it's regular time slot next week (hopefully). Some misc. ramblings... I was very happy to see that the Carolina Panthers pulled out another win this past Sunday. What a game! The first half Chicago's defense was smothering the Panther's offense, but they came alive in the second half. I am not a sports writer, so my "coverage" of the game is not all that in depth. Besides, there are plenty of other sources better than me out here on the web. To be honest, when Steve Smith earned his suspension for two games I thought that if the Panthers went 1-1 i would be happy. At 2-0 i am an ecstatic fan! The NFL season is a long one, and there are still fourteen more games to be played. Some against some very formidable opponents (Tampa Bay twice, New Orleans twice, the defending Super Bowl champions, to name a few). There will be injuries to overcome, and some just plain bad weeks. But i hope i can enjoy the ride for a while longer. Our home computer was sliding into the grave ever so slowly. The video card was not working with various programs that it once was able to, both of the disk drives would no longer open (well, one was temperamental, the other was plan old broke) so when I took it in to get fixed the difference in cost between repair and replacement was very little - I opted to just replace it. Growing pains are being experienced by all. Today i should be able to pick up the new system complete with a full file transfer from old to new. One good thing though... i found out that i probably will not have to spend as much as i thought i would have to on a laptop. Sweet! That means i can start saving for something else sooner. My next goal is to save for a sizable portion to take the family on a longer vacation. Well, that's all for now. God bless. Verse for today: Proverbs 16 : 2-7, ESV All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished. By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil. When a man's ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
