Tiny Theater Thursday

We saw this movie on Friday and it was AWESOME!! (and I'm not just saying that because Brendan Fraser is in it but that sure didn't hurt any!)

Tiny Theater Thursday

We've really been getting into Superstars of Dance at our house - which is kind of weird since none of us can really dance all that well and dancing really isn't something any of us aspire to. I can't even really tell you how we started watching it but this duet from Russia absolutely amazed me this week and I'm dying to know how they did it...enjoy! (sorry the video isn't a better quality but it's the only one I could find)

My freakin' awesome trip!!

I should be sharing these kinds of pictures with you this week: (Do I have some awesome Photoshop skills or what?!?!?)
In case you can't tell that's me at an archeological dig in the Honduras,
cave tubing in Belize, peeking out at you from a Mayan Ruin in Mexico,
and lounging on a hammock on the beach in Cozumel

But, alas, cancer had another idea for us. I’m telling you though that as soon as CarGuy is better he will be making up this trip! I joke that I’m going to haul him to every Amish quilt shop and tea house between here and New York! But, really, he most assuredly will have to endure a few things that I’ve really wanted to do. I’m not above using guilt to get my way...let me assure you of that! So…in the future be prepared to hear about the wonderful weekend we spent at that adorable bed and breakfast in the Swiss Alps, the absolutely priceless time we had backpacking with Llamas in Tibet (do they have Llamas in Tibet?), our latest archeological find (and subsequent run from the authorities) in Egypt, how I nearly drowned while snorkeling off the coast of Belize (please, there’s no way I could do all these things without causing some sort of self injury or destruction along the way!), and our search for a summer home in Monaco. (hehehe…wait until I tell CarGuy about this stuff I’m planning – that’ll make him agree to the Amish field trip even faster and will also ensure that he will pretend to actually enjoy himself!!)

Ok…so back in the real world we are getting closer and closer to the hubster’s transplant and things are starting to get exciting! He has lots of procedures this week. We will be at the hospital and the cancer center nearly all day on Thursday and Friday. They will be testing all his bodily functions so they can tell him how absolutely healthy he is. They need to get baseline functioning on all his organs so if anything starts to act up during transplant, they will know if it’s being caused by some part of the treatment or was a pre-existing condition. I just know that once they tell him how perfect he is there will be no living with him! I’ll have to remind him that he’s not quite so perfect – that little bone marrow issue, you know? Oh, but wait, they are going to kill that off and put new in. Oh, man, he really is going to be hard to live with! ;-) Nothing like having medical evidence that you are a pristine example of God’s handiwork – ugh!

Tiny Theater Thursday

Something about this is just kind of creepy but intriguing at the same time! I'm not exactly sure that's how our bodies are supposed to move. I sure know mine doesn't even come close!!

Tiny Theater Thursday

Special new year's edition -- everyone have a great 2009! We are hoping for a cure this year and if I happen to lose 20 or 60 pounds, well...I'll take that too!!
