Why American Idol Is Worth Watching

If you know me, you know we don't have a working TV at our apartment. You also would know that I don't like American Idol in the least.
But, if I DID have a T.V., this would be the one reason to watch A.I.
Man, he's got some pipes.

PS: Excuse the poor video quality.
PSS: Simon called this performance "the most self-indulgent bit of rubbish" he's ever seen.

Hello blog readers...
I am currently on day 2 of spring break, and thus far have completed the following:
- got a facial (divine)
- cooked a meal for the Maclennan fam
- cleaned out our silverware drawer (strange.... but there was sprinkles in it!!)
- practiced Chopin's Nocturne in E minor
- vacuumed and dusted our little apartment
- attempted to get my identity back (i think i have a little problem with my social security # being used by someone other than me)

And, I am about to knock on my lovely neighbors' door and ask to steal their puppy for a walk...
Tomorrow, Isaac and i will have banana bread coming out of our ears!!!

I love vacation :)

Spring To Do List...

Once again, my special affection for making lists prevails! So, what do I want to do over my spring break? Here's my (draft) spring-break-to-do-checklist.
  • Visit the Maclennan twinsies and parents
  • Shop!!! I have been craving a Nordstrom's rack trip for weeks now!
  • Go serve at the LB shelter with Ronda
  • Salsa dance with the sister
  • Connect with Nicole, Steph, Natalie & Kelly
  • Walk Kaylee-Bee
  • Set up skype so I can chat with Shea
  • Get Italy details in order
  • Palm Springs day trip with momma
  • Go to the driving range with daddy-o
  • Clean our carpets... yuck
  • Take lunch to my roomies at work
  • Finish A Tale of Two Cities
  • Cook... especially to transform the heaping pile of ripe bananas in our freezer into bread
  • Did I say relax?
To be continued...

Grammar Lessons from God

Being a high school graduate, (almost) college graduate, 3 year AP English student, and living-mate to two gifted teachers, I have had my fair share of grammar and punctuation lessons to boot. But, no English lesson has profoundly struck me as these 2 little gems have:

1. Don't put a comma where God puts a period.
2. Don't put a period where God puts a comma.

I am learning to trust and rely on the fact that He is the author of our living epistles, and knows just what punctuation is perfect!
