February 28

Today was one of those simple, perfect days. Jack and I got some coffee (I guess the lady misheard my name!) and then shopped for a little while together. Later, we cooked dinner together and then just spent the evening watching TV and relaxing.

Today Jack had to judge all day at the tournament in Houston, so I was free to go visit one of my best friends, Brittany, for a few hours. It's so great to hang out with her.

Today we drove to Houston for a tournament, and Jack competed this evening in forms, weapons, and sparring. He won first in forms and weapons and third in sparring. I am so proud to be his wife.

Today at work we had teeny-tiny Cub Scout visitors. We gave them a tour and showed them how the studio and the green screen works, and they had a blast making a video.

Tonight was "thank you" night at Awana, which meant lots of love from the directors and kids. It's sweet of them to take the time to say thank you.

Tonight was Jack's school's color belt testing, and afterward, they usually go out to dinner. Tonight I joined them and had a lovely meal and some nice conversation with Jack and the students.

Tonight I had a video shoot with Owen and Sarah after work, so Jack actually got home before I did and started cooking dinner for me! It was so nice to come home to dinner already being made. I have the best husband.

I finally bought my road bike today!! I'm naming her Lucy (after Lucille Ball). Because she's red. I've been saving for it for a long time, and I also used the gift card I won in the blog contest last year to help defray the cost. I'm so excited to finally have it, and I'm hoping that it will make BikeMS easier this year!

Tonight we went out to dinner at Bob's with some of the people Jack works with. It was kind of fun getting dressed up and going out for a fancy dinner.

Yet another day shooting on location at work.

Today we had a last-minute on-site video shoot. We had to grab all our gear, tear it down, take it to the location, then set it up again. It was a little stressful, but very fun to get outside our box and do something different.

Today, Jack hit himself with his weapon again, this time on his leg. He came home all bruised and swollen. Poor guy.

This morning I put a pork loin in the oven on low and cooked it for 10 hours, producing some of the best shredded pork we had ever had at the end of the day. Jack was really excited about this meal.

Today was a relaxing day for me - I was off work for President's Day, but Jack had to work. Shane and Cassandra were in town for All-Star weekend, so they came over and visited a while and played our Wii for a while.

Tonight we had the opportunity to go to the All-Star slam dunk contest at the American Airlines center. We sat in Danny Ainge's $400 seats. Awesome.

It was a snow day today! We had so much fun watching movies, playing in the snow, and I even made a snow man. But it wasn't this one. This one, we found in the park. Mine was a whole lot smaller!

It snowed today!! It was beautiful. Huge flakes. No ice, so we went to work, but I got to go home at 3:30. Awesome.

Tonight was supposed to be Awana night, but Jack called me this afternoon and told me that his uncle was in town for tonight only and wanted to have dinner with us at Rick's Chophouse. I felt bad for skipping Awana, but it was such a wonderful dinner, and it was so nice to see Uncle Jack and Christine again.

When Jack got home tonight, we were all excited because LOST is on on Tuesdays. We excitedly turned on the TV, clicked over to our DVR list, and were very, very disappointed to find out that it didn't record after all. This is my sad face because we didn't get to watch LOST tonight.

February 8

Today was a little more eventful than we wanted it to be.

As soon as I sat down on the couch after I got home from work, my cell phone rang. It was Jack. At 7:30 p.m.

"What's wrong?" I answered the phone. Jack doesn't get off work until about 10 p.m., and if he's calling before then it's because there's something wrong or he needs something. I heard Jack laugh nervously on the other end of the line.

"Well, I'm okay," he started, and then slowly explained to me what had just happened. Evidently, Jack was doing a kama form when he accidentally hit one of them on the other, causing it to ricochet back and hit him in the face, cutting his lip pretty deeply.

When he called, he was headed to the Urgent Care facility near the taekwondo school, so I took the dog back to my parents back to my parents' house and headed out there. When I got there, they were just finishing up super-gluing the cut back together, and the only thing he was annoyed about was that they put too much glue on and he couldn't move his face like he wanted to.

Also, he was a little embarrassed about having just hit himself in the face with a weapon.

February 7

Today was Superbowl Sunday, and so we had the Wildmans and the Bradshaws over for what we affectionately called a "Superbuckle party." We had so much fun visiting with everybody, and Colton and Jack were happy to see the Saints win.

This afternoon while Jack was at work, I went to lunch at Olive Garden with his parents before they went back home. The service wasn't great, but the company was!

Jack's parents got into town today, and so we went with them and my parents to Grimaldi's for dinner tonight. Yum!!

Today at work, they had a chili cook off, and we brought chili and did a huge tasting for lunch. The chili I brought (my mom's) won the Best Presentation award!

Tonight was Awana, and man, these kids are fun. And crazy. And smart. And loud. And sweet.

Today for lunch, we all went out to our favorite salad place, Salata, to celebrate Joanna's and Brenda's birthdays. We love that place!

Today after work, I came home and cleaned. And cleaned, and cleaned, and cleaned. It was ridiculous. We have Jack's parents coming in this weekend and a few friends coming over for the Superbowl, so I figured it would be nice to get it out of the way early. And it feels so good to sit in a clean house.
