climbing for kids

both of my brother-in-laws are doing very exciting things! my other brother-in-law (sidenote: i went from a family dominated by females to suddenly a family dominated by males) is participating in an event called climbing for kids. he's been wanting to do something like this and 2008 is going to be the year. i'm so proud! to get more information, just click on the link:

where are you, cell phone?

*3rd update* i suspended service to my phone, just in case.

*2nd update* my phone is off again. this is driving me nuts. so far no charges have been incurred.

*update* my phone is back on, but no one is picking up. i'm not sure if this is good or bad. chris offered to walk over to cbs and have them issue an amber alert. at least that made me smile.

so, in a post-happy hour ride home, i think i lost my cell phone in a cab. it definitely makes one feel extremely vulnerable after losing a phone. what makes this additionally upsetting? i just got a new one in december. the phone has since been either turned off or the sim card was removed (it goes straight to voicemail when i call my number) because i know my phone is not dead--i had just charged the battery. the story i like to tell myself is that it was found by the cab driver, and he turned it off so he didn't have to listen to it ring a bunch while someone searched for it, and then he turned it into the lost and found and they will be calling me any moment to tell me that my cell phone is safe and sound and waiting to be picked up.

i'm guessing this is wishful thinking.

as a proud sister-in-law, i am pleased to share that mark/abe is going to cameroon for one of his medical school rotations. it will definitely be a life-changing experience.



well, after being inspired by other people's blogs and such, i decided to commandeer our wedding blog and turn it into my own personal blog. although i sort of have another blog (peanutzarch.blogspot.com), that one is mostly pictures and usually updated by brandon. this blog is meant to share with others what i'm thinking, reading, doing, etc. (thank you, kelly for the inspiration). i hope that this blog will serve to provoke some interesting conversations with others, and help me keep in contact--after all, that was new year's resolution #1--make time for friends and family.
