Another one bites the dust…

There is not a whole lot that I can say about this, but I’m up here in Illinois right now and there is snow on the ground. Yesterday we decided to go sledding. Seemed harmless enough. I mean you just sit on a piece of plastic and slide down a hill. However, someone had the audacity to create a ramp in the snow on the sledding hill, and of course I was obligated to try this jump. The first try went amazingly well, but the second try was not so good. I will let the video speak for itself. Follow this link to enjoy the show.



Here is what my face looked like that evening following the incident (notice the considerable swelling and bruising):


And here is what my face looked like the next morning (I woke up with a black eye):


When everything was said and done, yeah it hurt a lot, but I will be just fine.  We are having a great time up here in Illinois.  Let me know what you guys think about the video and everything.

I can see clearly now the rain is gone…

I just wanted to let everyone know that the LASIK surgery went amazingly well. It was the weirdest procedure that I have ever been through, but it has had amazing effects already. It is so awesome to waje up and just be able to see. I don’t have to reach for my glasses or anything like that anymore. The other thing is that the improvement is basically instantaneous. It was just really cool. I would highly recommend it to anyone thta is teetering on the thought of having it done. You will not regret it at all. It is a little bit annoying for the first few days, because it feels like there is something in your eye and you cannot rub it. However, it is very much worth the slight frustration. I have enjoyed the first three days after surgery, and I understand that it will only get better.
This week holds a lot of fun things just like last week did. It starts today at lunch with our church staff Christmas luncheon, and tomorrow night is our youth group Christmas party, and we are going to have a fabulous time. Christmas for my family starts this Saturday with a trip to Kim’s grandpa’s house in the morning and my Dad’s side of the family Christmas party in the evening. The week is capped off with our Christmas Worship Service this Sunday night. It is going to be a great week. I will let everyone know how everything goes as it occurs. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season.

There’s a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well…

I am really excited that Christmas is just around the corner.  I love singing Christmas songs and carols.  I just love this time of the year.  You know, Christmas comes this time each year. (that’s for you Kim)  I have a really busy and exciting week.  Tomorrow morning we have an appointment to go get faimly Christmas photos taken.  That should be lots of fun.  Then I have a lunch meeting tomorrow afternoon.  Thursday we are supposed to go eat dinner with some friends, and then Friday I am having LASIK surgery done.  I am so excited about it that I cannot wait.  It is going to save us so much money in the long run with not having to buy glasses and stuff.  As if all of that wasn’t enough, Saturday we have a Christmas party to go to with some friends from First Baptist Powder Springs.  So the week is jam packed, but it is going to be loads of fun.  Oh yeah you are probably wanting to know why I have time to blog right now.  It is because I took finals yesterday, and I actually have time to breathe for a few minutes.  But anywho…I hope that everyone is having a great Christmas season, and I will check in later.

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog…

I don’t really have time among all of the other things that I should be doing to blog, so this will be quick.  I must start by saying the I am very proud of my Yellow Jackets for showing all of those UGA people that there is another team in this state.  Also, I am very excited because I am going to have LASIK surgery next Friday.  I think that it is going to be awesome.  I am a little nervous, but it will be worth all of the nervousness.  I just wanted to let everyone know in case you all cared what is going on with my eyes.  I hope that everyone is having a great Christmas season, and I will check in soon.
