update on things

Sorry, I haven't written for a little while. I meant to give my lost update for the week and give my two cents on a range of other subjects, but I haven't. (By the way didn't they take quite the turn on Lost?). So, I thought I'd just leave a quick note of what we are doing. We got all the lender stuff done and now we are officially looking for a house of our own. (note the picture attached is not the house we're buying, just some random house on a google image search, but we're poor so we'll be lucky if we can find a house like that). So, that's going to be our life these next few weeks: house hunting. We can't afford a whole lot because we're living solely off of my income (and I work for Davis School District). So, any advice for those 1st time home buyers looking to buy an existing home?

Winter Blues

Has anybody else wondered when this season will end. I start to get the winter blues in January (post Christmas) and they don't tend to let up until things start to warm up in March. Right now I'm feeling the winter blues heavily at the moment. Will this icky cold ever go away????

Lost - Confirmed Dead

Warning - Lost Spoiler Alert- if you plan on ever watching the lost series, its best done from the beginning one episode at a time, its not fun if you get spoilers. I suggest you go get yourself the DVDs and join geeks everywhere in lost mania.

Okay, so we finally watched the last episode "Confirmed Dead", you can actually watch all of the episode from the ABC website at http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/landing. We gave up TV for internet (its a long story). So, we watch lost on the web now.

So, who are these people and what do they want with Ben? Ben's kind of a creep and he deserves anything thats coming to him, but these people kind of give me the creeps to, (especially Miles). I talk to dead people, hmmm. Oh, and what happened to the rest of the "others"?

I'm constantly amazed at how complicated this show can be. If someone were to tell me the plot (without watching the show) I would think it wouldn't be worth watching at all, too complicated, a little too much mystery. However, it works. I don't know why, but it works. I'm hooked. And they are taking the show a new direction. I'm excited for the 13 episodes this season (yes because of the resolution to the writers strike they are adding 5 more episodes - yay!).

What do you guys think???

Savy's B-day and Ultrasound pictures

Okay, so I'm not always good at putting pictures on here. I get reminded by friends and family from time to time. So, in trying to catch up. Here are the pictures of Savannah's (Nana or Savy for short) 1st birthday (we didn't really have a party on her birthday, just our little family). Oh, and here are the pictures of our boy's ultrasound (on the bottom).

We still like to eat everything.

What you aren't seeing is her older sister dying to figure out what are in the presents (Sydney just assumed that any presents belonged to her).
So, this winnie the pooh rocker was a huge hit with both kids.
Instead of making Savannah a whole cake to destroy, we made a bunch of cupcakes and gave her one. She was much more enthusiastic about getting into it than Sydney was on her 1st birthday.
Now, introducing Logan James Bateman, well, maybe not quite yet. Here's a sneak preview. This first two shots show his face pretty well.

And, yes, definitely a boy. We're excited, our girls don't have a clue yet. I'm not sure how Savannah's going to take it, she's only had 1 year to be the baby so far. She might not like a little brother taking the attention where it's suppose to belong.

Who should you vote for?

Well, I'm not actually going to tell you who you should vote for because you probably think differently than I do, but I found this interesting website that helps you figure out which candidate comes closest to your own political views.

Its at www.votechooser.com. You take a quiz and it lets you know which candidate share's your opinions.

Of course I don't really like any of the candidates that are still in the race, but what do you do???

Super Tuesday

This is and was never meant to be a political blog. I don't feel like I know enough about politics to put my two cents in. I just wanted to express my disappointment in the political religious bigotry that has been occurring on the conservative side. I really think someone's religion shouldn't have anything to do with their politics and they should be laid aside. On the note, I don't think that their moral conduct should be laid aside (as in Bill Clinton's situation a few years ago), but their personal beliefs in good shouldn't be a determining factor. I feel that Huckabee is a bigot and he's only stayed in to take votes away from Romney. Would Romney be able to make it anyway? I don't know, but he would have had a better chance if Huckabee just dropped out (he didn't have a chance anyway). Anyway, my political rant is over. I'll try to keep this to a minimum in the future.

Addicted to blogging

Apparently I'm not really all that addicted to the blog thing (as you can tell because I've been so bad about posting messages). I'm only 64% addicted to blogging. I wish I could say that about pop or wow. I think its rigged, for as Sheryl would say (or rather did) " I thought you would be closer to 18%...you never update! (OR COMMENT...) :( Sad... "
