First, watch this.
Now read this.
So there you go. As Christians, I think we should become different and be less obsessed with stuff. But I also know that God will one day destroy the world. :-) (That is to be taken as a joke.) I just thought I would be an extremist. OHHH, AHHH.
This one is just for fun.

Right now I am being a obsessive compulsive wife and tracking his flight. John found this web site, Flight Aware, a while back and has alway tracked my flights. Of course I would make fun of him, but now I am finding a lot of comfort in knowing exactly where he is. It is kinda fun. Plus, at 5:00am when you drink an entire mug of coffee, you must find an outlet before having your blood sugar crash.
Here are some funny stories about flying I found wasting time on the internet.
PA left on and needing hot woman
This classic joke, with variations, can be found in almost every book with airline humor. And it must have happened somewhere, somehow...
During a particularly rough flight, the airliner pilot addresses his passengers: "The turbulence we passed through was rough, but we have passed that now. The rest of the flight is expected to be smooth." The pilot was unaware that his PA switch was stuck on, and leaned over to the co-pilot and said "Boy, was that rough! What I need now is a hot woman and a cold beer."
A flight attendant in the rear of the aircraft heard this, and ran forward to warn the pilot.
As she neared the cockpit, an elderly woman passenger stopped her saying "Don't forget the beer!"
Pilot flies better than driving
In an attempt to keep the passengers from standing or moving around before taxiing was completed, the purser of a SouthWest flight said over the PA:
"Ladies and Gentlemen. Our pilots FLY much better than they DRIVE so please remain seated until the captain finishes taxiing and brings the aircraft to a complete stop at the terminal..."
See This Red "S" On My Chest?
The rich-and-famous don't always succeed in flaunting the rules, as the world-boxing champion learned on one flight. While the aircraft was pushed back, the flight attendant asked him to buckle his seatbelt.
The champ replied, "Superman don't need no seatbelt!"
Without missing a beat, the savvy flight attendant replied: �Superman don't need no airplane, either!"
The boxer buckled up without another word.
Have a good flight!

Tonight, John picked me up from work and we went to a nice little outdoor patio restaurant. We came home and decided to eat the little cake from my mom. I hope you enjoy this very embarrassing video. We were being goober heads.
Um, we are both completely stuffed up so it sounds very funny.
Unfortunately, I feel horrible today and when I tried to blow the noise maker, I almost passed out! Also, this morning we made brownies for all the people that take care of Diesel at the vet clinic. Of course some of them fell apart in transfer to the plate so of course I had to dispose of them...in my mouth. Now I feel sick to my stomach and all the goodies in the box made my stomach turn just enough.
Anyway, here it is! Thanks mom- you are the greaest!

I can not stop sneezing! It is crazy. I almost had to pull off the side of the road because my eyes had to keep closing. After a a while you start to get an ab work out! Next time you sneeze, put your hand on your stomach- Maybe that should be my next video... "Want great abs? Just sneeze! Offer only good during allergy season."
And oh my eyes! They are soo swollen and puffy and RED! AND THEY ITCH!!!! I feel like I have dirt in them. IT's horrible.
At the moment, my husband and I are on Claritin. I am thinking of switching to Zyrtec. It seems to be the trendy way to go.
What is your allergy remedy?

HE does not remember what his log in name used to be, but he changed it to FRANK BOB when he knew that those names would never be used on our children.
Hope you enjoy!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little video that the three singers and I performed at the end of each voyage.
Alberto, Brooke, Chris- I miss you!

HE is my super hero. He kills spiders while admitting that he doesn't like them either.
He is a hard worker and he never complains. He gets up every morning at 5:15ish to go to work and usually has no idea what time he will be home. His job requires more brain power and skill than anything I have ever done.
HE is humble. HE would never tell you how cool he really is. :-) He never asks anyone to call him by his title, though he deserves it after all the years of schooling and test taking. He is just John or Mr. John. One of the units at the Hospital threw him a going away party when he left the rotation!
HE is kind hearted. HE is not to cool for anyone. All of his friends love him (I guess they wouldn't be friends if they didn't). HE plays guitar and very well at that. HE sings like a rock star.
HE tells me I am beautiful EVERYDAY and ALL DAY. HE even makes me tell him how beautiful I am so I will know it (but I don't because that's strange. But then he thinks that is cute) "Tell me!" HE makes funny noises, no not gas, just strange noises like "egh" and other things I can't seem to figure out how to spell. He has me making them now. HE answers my phone calls every time with either "Wife" or "I love you!" or "Egh!" HE even sends me text messages during surgery!
HE reads the Bible with me. HE prays with me every night before we sleep. HE waits up for me on my long work nights just to say goodnight. HE greets me at the door to say "hello" and gives me sweet hugs and kisses. HE goes to church with me every Sunday that he can. He goes to Bible study every time that he can. He wants to lead our family towards Christ.
HE likes to sleep outside with our dog and the umbrella. HE loves to grill. HE watches "So You Think You Can Dance" with me. He loves to go for spontaneous SONIC runs with me.
HE taught me how to ride a road bike safely. HE organizes my training schedules on EXCEL spreadsheets. HE taught me how to swim more efficiently. HE encouraged me during my first Triathlon. I would not have finished the first portion if were not for him cheering me on.
HE IS PATIENT! Oh my goodness is he patient with me! Wow.
There is so much more.....
My husband is my wonderful friend. I have never been so comfortable around any one. We always joke that he had no idea I was like "this" when he asked me to marry him. Frankly, neither did I.

It has been a while so I thought I would post some pictures of our cute Diesel. He is getting big. He is about 4 1/2 months old and a little over 40 pounds. Crazy!
We are taking him to the Farmer's market today. We will see how he does. Yesterday we bought a pinch collar. They look horrible and mean, but they do not hurt, they just "remind" the dog to not pull on the leash. IT took 15 seconds and Diesel was walking right by our side. AMAZING!
We have been training him, but we are still thinking of doing some official obedience training. He is very smart and I think that is the problem. He is stubborn and comes when he wants to and sits when it works for him. We have been training him to "heel" for quite a while and already it is hard for me hang on to the leash- so it was either this or the SHOCK COLLAR... we can not bring ourselves to do that. :-(
