Sonic Ice!

Yes you heard me Sonic ice here in PA. Cory went there last week and I asked him to see if they sold their ice and the answer was Y E S!!!. I enjoyed a chicken toaster sandwich and an icy cold diet cherry limeade. A little piece of AZ that totally made my month. Every time I need a piece of home I have a soda with good ole Sonic ice and I am back home with all my friends and it is happy hour!
Gotta love the simple pleasures in life.

New Favorite Steakhouse

For Elise's birthday we all went out to celebrate her quarter century milestone at Longhorn Steakhouse and let me just say...yummy! A little more expensive than Texas Roadhouse but it is about 20 minutes closer so if you add in the gas I think it is about the same price. Cory and I shared an entre and the girls had a kids meal each but next time they could easily share one. The bread they bring out before dinner is to die for! Whole wheat bread and all you can eat is a dangerous combination. You almost don't have room for your dinner once it comes...almost. The steak was simply fab...and Cory loved the ribs.
It was fun getting out with everyone...good food and great company...who could ask for more? We were glad the song they sing to the birthday girl was short...and sweet. It sounded a bit like "hey Micky your so fine your so fine you blow my mind hey Micky" But the word chicken was in there some where. Well we got out of there for 30.00 bucks and for a family of 4 that wasn't bad at all. Next birthday we are for sure going to suggest Longhorn! Whose birthday is next anyway?

Strange Addiction

Well I have been watching Intervention alot lately and I have come to the conclusion that I too have an addiction...I am addicted to watching my husband play Halo 3 online! I know I know I am the girl that threw her boy's playstation outside because I hate hearing the same music and hearing the boys get frustrated with their video games. Those who know me may find this a little disturbing and may be wondering if there is something strange in the water here in PA. Well I still hate all other video games...I leave the room and would rather clean a toilet than have to sit through 2 minutes of any other video game. I still believe that video games are mind sucking time fillers...well except for Halo is in a different category. To me it is like watching a movie where you can actually effect the plot and ending. I know this may sound strange and even a little scary but I promise I am not turning into a stedford wife...there is no mind altering drug that has affected me...I just can't get enough of watching him play. Right now he is busy studying for boards on the 9th of February and a ton of tests this next week so he doesn't have much time to play and I have been sulking. I am trying to learn how to play myself but I am that is not a strong enough word...I stink...I can't move and shoot at the same time...I am a loser. So I might just have to step outside my marriage and find someone else who will play Halo 3 online and let me watch. Sometimes we have to do drastic things! I wonder if there is a 12 step program? A support group maybe? Well until I either get my fix or go into Halo 3 rehab I will remain a Halo 3 junkie.

Happy Christmas and Merry New Year

Well it has been awhile for me and I know I am a mediocre blogger but my heart is in it! I love to read about everyone else's lives and I feel closer to them after I read their thoughts and share in their lives fun adventures.
We here in PA had a quiet Christmas, with many great bonuses and some missing of our families that live so far away. Cory was home and even though he was studying for his boards in Feb. he was around and we loved it. He took us to the movies and played video games with girls. The girls were in heaven having daddy around to wrestle with and annoy on so many levels. It was nice to go to bed with Cory and wake up and he was still there! I haven't had that happen since the summer.
My sister has promised to come for a visit soon...and I am positively giddy. She is the one person who really knows me and loves me anyway. She knows all my secrets...and I know hers. I am so blessed to have a sister that is also my best friend. I hope and pray my girls will grow up and have the same loving relationship with each other that I have with Care. Well enough of the sappy stuff...that is what happens when you don't get to see your family for long periods of time.
School starts again for Cory tomorrow and we are all so very sad. Especially Dene...she had the disappointment of finding out today that daddy will not be her teacher next year and she was devastated and to have him gone again...I don't know how she will cope.
We will survive! We only have 2 years 4 months and 20 days to go.
Tell later I remain,
