I’m Doing It.

So, I finally broke down and decided I’d do it.  I’m reading the teenager vampire book I swore I’d never read.  And I am completely addicted.  I am going to by  the other three tonight.  And did you know that there is a movie coming out on November 21st?  Yes.  I have the girls in the office addicted to the books too.  The receptionist is on book four.  She started reading theseries on Tuesday.  So is it possible to fall in love with a teenage vampire?  Yes it is.  Edward is amazing.  Where can I buy one? 

Also, I am super excited that Lipstick Jungle is back on.  I absolutely adore this show and all the people in it.  I was so not a Sex in the City girl and was afraid that this show would be much like the previous but it’s not.  If you aren’t watching it on Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. on NBC you should.  I cannot wait for Damages (FX) and Nip/Tuck (FX) to come back on.  Love that The Office is back.  And the new 90210 rocks.  I swore I wouldn’t watch it but I can’t help myself.  It will never be the original but it sure is good watching. 

Well, back to work.  Today is my nephew, Caden’s 5th birthday!  It’s hard to believe he is 5.  When I moved to NC he was 7 months old.  We are celebrating his birthday tonight and we’ll miss having Roger there with us.  Continue to keep him in your prayers. 

Oh yeah.  We have some awesome news about Duke and the foundation.  I’ll share that later this weekend.  Leave y’all with something to ponder……



Preparing For Hanna.

What is a tropical storm now will soon be a category 3 hurricane and dumping on the Carolinas.  I have never been (knock on wood) through a hurricane before and am not particularly looking forward to Hanna.  Ashley has been through two really bad hurricanes.  The idea of no power isn’t one I like to think about.  Ashley says it won’t be bad.  Just a lot of rain and a lot of wind.  I’m not sure when he went to meteorologist school but that’s another story.  Anyway, just say some prayers for us folks living in the Carolinas.  Especially us newbies. 

Did anyone watch the Sarah Palin speech last night?  Amazing!  She actually had me in tears a few times and I believe her speech is one of the most moving I have ever heard.  I believe she is person people can relate to and a woman who gets things done.  I’ve never been into politics much but I watched last night at the request of Ashley and I’m so glad I did.  If you haven’t watched the speech I suggest you go online and find it because it’s worth the time.  She made a huge impact last night and I am looking forward to her being our next Vice President. 

Okay, most of you know that I’m doing Weight Watchers and for those who don’t you do now.  I’ve lost a little bit of weight since starting again and I’m doing really good on the program.  Following my points and not going over them.  Ashley and I went walking last night with the dogs and we were all exhausted when we got home!  It was so good to get out and get some exercise though and I know the girls had a blast!  We are going to start walking every night with the girls to help them get rid of some energy and us to lose some weight.  I mentioned WW for two reasons.  The first is because of the new Lose for Good Campaign that each of you should check out and get involved in.  Every pound literally counts in this campaign and it’s something I am proud to be a part of.  Secondly, Ashley and I are getting our pictures done in October and vowed we each lose at least 10 pounds before the pictures.  I’m super excited about getting our pics done because we haven’t had them professionally done since June of 2006 and because our photographer, Vanessa, is awesome! 

Well, I better get back to work.  Please keep us in your prayers as Hanna gets closer.  I’d love a day off but not because of a hurricane!
