Moving On...

It is official. For my birthday my husband told his wonderful parents to buy me a .mac subscription, which allows me to keep my other blog. So, I will no longer be using blogger.

From this point forward, if you want to know about us, you should go to OUR .MAC ACCOUNT

Problem with Link

I'm not sure what was wrong with the links posted below. I believe they should be working now. If not, leave me a comment and I will work on it again!

Spring Break

I'm sorry that I have not yet updated everyone on the productiveness (or lack there of) from my spring break. But, I will tell you that I did go home to Mascoutah (St. Louis) to surprise my parents for a day. That was a lot of fun. One of the perks was that my dad loaded the most recent version of the Mac operating system onto my computer. Along with it came and free 60-day trial to .Mac, which allows you to do lots of fun things, one of which is create your own website. At the bottom of this blog entry you will find the link for the other version of Eric and Kerri's blog (which has some other entries, and some pictures).

In building this simple .Mac website, my desire for a new camera has been re-kindled. My in-laws were very kind in giving Eric and I a digital camera for Christmas right before our wedding. That camera has since bitten the dust. I guess I shouldn't say that. It still works, provided that you always want to zoom in completely onto whatever it is you're taking a picture of. For close up shots, therefore, it doesn't work too well.

So, I think I may have decided that I want a new camera for my birthday. I'd really like to have something small, something that could fit into my pocket. But, I also would like it to take clear pictures. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to purchase a .Mac subscription, so that I can keep the blog linked below (because I'm really starting to like it). And the nice thing is that it is really easy to load pictures and videos onto. So, if anyone knows of a good camera I might want to have, send me some specs on it so I can check it out. And I'll be looking as well.

Well, it is time for me to retire to bed for today. Go check out the new blog. Nothing spectacular, but I think it's worth looking at :)

Stuck on the Toilet

Just when I think I've heard it all, I find someone has a phobia of leaving the toilet. Really? I've heard of some strange things, but that's one I definitely thought I never thought I'd hear. This woman sat on the toilet/didn't leave the bathroom for 2 years. If you wanna read about it, follow THIS LINK

Eric and I start out IKEA jobs tomorrow evening. He works 4-11, I work 4-10. I'm a little nervous just because I still don't feel completely prepared, but hopefully I can wing my way through it :)

48 more school days until summer. I can do this :)
