Describes how I'm feeling extension of what was bothering me yesterday - fever, coughing, sneezing, weakness. So I stayed home from work...the pugs enjoyed their mid afternoon romp outside...they usually don't get that when Caleb and I are at work!

Here are the pugs in the backyard...

This is Emmett running back to me to say hello.

Old Spanish Sugar Mill

January 5, 2008 Caleb's family and mine went to the Old Spanish Sugar Mill in DeLeon Springs State Park - it was a wonderful breakfast with both families...and a very filling meal! Most of the meal is cooked right in front of you - everyone is their own chef. I remember going this restaurant a long time ago, maybe when I was 8 or 10 years old...although I remember the restaurant being so big! It actually is a quaint restaurant with just a few tables. Nonetheless it is memorable. Caleb's family went there when he was younger as well. Below are a few pictures from that day.

Red Sox Tickets

Caleb and I will be staying in Cape Cod for a few days in July this summer...the family is renting a house and we plan to stay there for a bit. Caleb would like to attend a Red Sox game while we are up there...any one have suggestions on how to get them??!! They play the Yankees one weekend we may be up there and then LA...I'm told that games vs. Yankees are impossible to get! We're going to start our searching now - Craigslist, Stubhub, etc. Any other suggestions are welcome!

End of Jaguar Season ;(

It was a tense game last night as the Jacksonville Jaguars tried to come out with a win against the undefeated New England Patriots up in Massachusetts. The opening drive for the Jags resulted in a touchdown - unfortunately the Patriots were able to answer the touchdown with one of their own. And so the game went, Patriots taking advantage of every error made by the Jaguars. Congrats to the Patriots for their win - although I'm now cheering for the Colts to win the Championship - conference rivals to the Jags, yes, but they are just a great team to watch and cheer on if my Jags aren't in it.

Can't wait to see the Jaguars next season - just 7 months away!!!

Found: Wedding Dress

How lucky can I be? The second dress I try on is perfect - really. Love the style, love the color, no alterations needed...WOW. That's a good day - check that off the list!

...And, a little song to encourage the Jags tonight as they play the New England Patriots...

with that.

13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds
all day.

15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their
party because you're not in the mood.

16. Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name "Rock

17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won, I won!"

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot,

19. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we are going
to have to let one of you go."
