A new hobby

Hey All in Blogland.

I have been LOVING this month off from school. LOVING it.
And, I have new hobby! It's called 'Call of Duty: World at War'. I'll warn you now- this game is NOT for the faint of heart. There's gore. There's blood. There's flailing body parts. And carnage.
It's. Awesome.
I find myself dreaming of the game, playing it every second I possibly can. Date nights are often now comprised of J and I taking turns playing in 10 minute intervals. Hooray for gaming as a relationship-bonding experience!! C and I actually set xbox dates at night where we go online and join games to chat and kill many fake people.
So fun.
And now, as I'm sitting here at work, I still wish I was home playing CoD. This might be becoming a problem! Perhaps I will experience withdrawals once school starts up again in a 10 days. Oh, tears!
The goal is to be able to take on J and whip his butt. I greatly enjoyed kicking the tar out of C online last night. Teach him to steal my flag when I'm defending it! HA!
...right... back to reality.
Just a few more hours to go until I can drive home and hopefully steal a few rounds of CoD before J wants to play. WOOT!

And, alas, I have not forgotten about making cards, which was the original intent of this blog. I am just procrastinating in uploading the pictures!
Too busy sitting in front of the xbox. Tee hee.

Messin with the Blog

Ahh! Finally!! Couldn't for the life of me figure out how to stop the words from stretching across the side borders. It was making me crazy!!
Hopefully this is better.

Always nice to add in some new background fun too!!

One Semester Down + Family Visits

Almost to the half-way mark.
Grad stats is up next.
Ugh. I've already signed up for a tutor. They will hate my 2nd day in as I will be emailing and calling perseveratively. He hee.
It has been 1 week since school ended, and all I want to do is sleep! I'd prefer to hibernate as a bear if at all possible. Perhaps go away on a vacation and enjoy a break from the rigours of life?

Honestly, we were blessed with a fabulous visit from my brother and sister in law and their little Monkey, Simoneous. It was grand!! Photos to come.
And in the weeks before this, a visit from my sister, her clan and my Lois and her fam. It was heavenly!!! And so fast.
I hope that my boy remembers these visits with family. I hope he grows up to treasure time spent with family and friends- to prioritize this and work at not taking such experiences for granted.
Next up- a visit from Grams and Gramps end of May. Just enough visits with everyone before school starts again and I drop off the face of the earth for another semester.
1.5 years to go!!

Ahh, that Friesen.
