I’m a Freakin’ Genius

My goal for this fall is to take an EMT certification class (you know, the ambulance people). Wade is going to be gone during the week, and there is a technical college literally next door to my office. Even better is that the college offers a night course. Being the slacker that I am, I…

    Better watch how you use the word ‘literally’, Holly. Rob S. has a real bug up his ass about it (rightfully so, in my opinion) and might question its use here.

    Always looking out for your best interests…

Hold On Just A Minute

After a long, hard day of sitting by the pool for me and thesis writing for Wade, we decided dinner was going to be Papa John’s. Since we have lived in this house, we have ordered a few times from the same particular Papa John’s. We have never had a “real” phone line so I…

Oxymoron

My parents used to send my sister and I to visit my Aunt Gayle and Uncle Bob in Washington D.C. during the summers growing up. The poem below is courtesy of my crazy Uncle Bob and a long car ride one night: I come before you to stand behind you to tell you something I…

    Hey I remember that!

    Yeah, that’s right. I’m reading Holly’s blog at work again. I’m a slacker.

    And I’m so glad you slack while reading my blog 🙂

The Worn-in Look

We have gone through most of the typical “puppy issues” with Madison. The one we haven’t had an issue with is chewing up things. She has never touched furniture, electrical cords, or things just laying around – until lately. We keep a bucket of toys for Madison and for some reason the bucket ended up…

Uber Happiness

I came home from work last night to a very excited greeting. Normally that is just Madison jumping and whining and begging attention, but last night Wade was just about as excited. He finally finished his rough, rough draft of his thesis. He was happier than Christmas and Birthday combined. I swear he was almost…

Puppy Smurf

It was a nice relaxing weekend at the Burch house. Wade spent most of the weekend working on his thesis and I spent most of it doing nothing! We rearranged a lot of furniture (love our living room), spent Saturday at the pool, and then watched a bunch of movies. Oh yeah, and we dyed…

    You are strange people. Strange strange people. awesome, too, but strange. Perhaps that’s why I keep you as friends.

    P.S. I like the “jar of things to do” idea, may have to use that one myself.

He Brought A Pocketknife To A Gunfight

My dad is a race car driver – at least on the weekends. Since he was 16 years old, he has raced in one form or another. He is now racing NHRA and IHRA Pro Modified. His car is a replica Viper and he races a nitrous oxide system (NOS). Last year he came in…

Cookie Monster

The next activity Wade and I chose was to make sugar cookies. This required a trip to the grocery for icing and sprinkles and a trip out for cookie cutters. Cookie cutters are surprisingly hard to find – we ended up with a bone, frog, heart, fish, and flower. Jamie was looking for something to…
