The Dog Ate My Homework

Just kidding - but he did step on my text book with his giant paws and he flung drool across the room and got some on Brian's laptop bag =)

This week at school is SUPER busy. Brian has to work on his project and complete a quiz tonight for the finance/accounting part of the Information Technology Managment program and I'm working on human resources stuff this course so I'll need to consider the things that my hospital does for retention and what other things we could do to improve employee satisfaction. I'm glad we both have less than a year left, while this classes are quick (4 weeks) they are pretty labor intensive. Erik started all his second semester classes yesterday and is happy with his teachers so far. Last night he and I worked some on his Spanish flashcards - it amazes me how comfortable and familiar foreign language is for him.

The rest of the week will be a blur, Thursday night LSE jazz band is hosting the "Noteables" - a special band from Offutt Air Force Base and Friday night is the Athletic Boosters Chili Feed (Brian and I will be working in concessions for the basketball games for 2 hours!). Saturday we'll take care of homework and laundry and Sunday Brian will be on the road for Iowa.

Dishwasher Day

This weekend the weatherman is threatening a rain/snow mix. Our new dishwasher is supposed to be delivered today and installed next week, I can hardly wait! The microwave is still on back order but it will be in eventually =)

Today I'm planning to take Erik to look at new shoes. Kohl's is already having a big sale and they sent me the "temptation" coupon (30% off) in the mail. Since he wears a size 15 sneaker we're always interested in shoe sales.

Erik's finals are over so he's enjoying another 4 day weekend... maybe I should consider teaching =)

Snow Days

Even though Christi always liked snow for her birthday growing up (what's better than a snow day?) she has a little less appreciation as an adult. Actually let's be honest, she loves to watch it fall, she doesn't particularly mind shoveling but driving around with the rest of Lincoln, even with 4 wheel drive and anti lock brakes isn't as much fun as it sounds!

Depending on where you are in Southeast Nebraska right now you have between 8-12 inches of snow. Lincoln Public School's is celebrating it's second snow day and the high school's are nervous because today was supposed to be the first day of finals. Now we're waiting to hear what the new "revised" finals schedule will be. Lucky for Erik he has two music classes and for his weight training final they are going to go play pool =)

Last night Brian and Christ finished their finals and tonight the next class starts up. So much for a break!

It's a Wash

Thursday after work Brian and I had an adventure. We drove to Omaha and enjoyed lunch at Dundee Dell (Yum fish and chips!) before venturing to Nebraska Furniture Mart. We looked at the new super designer kitchen but decided that $8000 for a refrigerator was way too much! We did find a new dishwasher and microwave. While this doesn't sound exciting to some, our microwave is the same age as Brian and I. Sometimes when we have the tv and the microwave on at the same time the circuit blows =) They will be delivered on Friday, January 14 and with any luck installed Monday, January 17.

Our house celebrated a quiet New Year's. Christi's mom and Roger came over for dinner and to celebrate another Christmas on New Year's Eve and Saturday we spent the whole day watching movies. Now back to our real lives, 40 (or more) hour work weeks, homework several nights a week, laundry, crazy doggies and of course the LSE Marching Knights.
