Cuatro de Mayo

So it's been awhile since  I wrote an actual blog post.  The turtle thinks that's unacceptable.

We actually have been doing a few fun/different things, but I've been lazy about taking photos and no photos = lame (-er than usual) blog posts.

Last weekend our church had it's yearly PR event called Love Madison where services are canceled and members are encouraged to do some kind of service project.  Our life group signed up to help the oldsters at St. Mary's Care Center play bingo.

The first thing I will say is that for every person who drooled and tried to eat the bingo chips, there were three more who where there to WIN.  This was a matter of pride... not to mention we were giving out quarters and colored pens.  Do not try to get between a slightly senile woman and her purple pen.

Daniel was the caller and he kept them in line.  Between the partial blindness, partial deafness, and out and out cheating, this was not an easy task.  But he managed it... with style.  
I work out.
Last night we went to the Epic computer science picnic, and it was a lesson in how the top 1% live.  Judy Faulkner just cracked the billionaire mark, so I guess it's a small thing to feed 200 people all you can eat steak and lobster (and lemon meringue cupcakes....  mmmmm).  When Daniel finally thinks up something cool and makes us a zillion dollars I'm going to eat nothing but lobster tails and lemon meringue cupcakes for an entire week.  Watch me.

Tonight we are out for a fancy dinner at Culver's and a trip to the Stoughton Opera House to hear the Tony Rice Unit.  Other than that, we don't have much else going on this weekend.  Daniel is playing in church on Sunday with the choir, and I'm excited to finally be able to run in shorts again.  Hope you have a good weekend!  


  1. You have a lot of fun stuff going on! Did you know that today is/was National Star Wars Day---"MAY THE FOURTH Be With You" is the slogan. There was a special program at the Natural History Museum/Gray Fossil Site here, but we didn't make plans to go.

  2. I did not know that. I also didn't know any Ewok skeletons had been found in East Tennessee :).

    Take care,

  3. No Ewok fossils; we only seem like a galaxy far, far away.
