Have You Missed Me?

I'm choosing to flatter myself and think that you all have missed me in my blogging absence. I do resolve to do a better job from now on. Here's what's been going on with Nate and I the last month or so.

-met our health insurance deductible halfway through January for the second year in a row. All because of me. Again. Got diagnosed with asthma, so much for my goal of no chronic conditions diagnosed this year. Lame. Also had to see some other specialists for some other issues. My vitamin D is super duper low, got a prescription for that. We're also going to try some new things with my diabetes. Yah, lots of fun there. Nate was taking to a colleague about how we've already met our deductible. His colleague said Nate should trade me in for a better functioning model, rude!

-paid off one of our cars yesterday! Woot woo! The other car will be paid off in September. I can't tell you how good it feels to own my precious Ford Focus free and clear. Loving it!

-bought some strawberries today. They're my most favorite fruit in all their world. The display at the store smelled so so good. Cannot wait to eat them tonight! I'm probably more excited than a grown woman should be. Please still be my friend.

-been doing some home decor projects. Pretty sure Nate is not as jazzed about it as me, but I promise our place is looking way better. Plus, I've only purchased things that would I would reuse in our next place, no frivolous spending. My cute cousin Becca is coming over tomorrow to help me hang some vinyl. I'll try to remember to post some pictures.

-watched 10,000 BC the other night. I know, random. I've been in the mood to watch that movie for months and Nate finally caved, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

-Mike and Sarah taught us a new game called Hand and Foot. Best game ever! I totally love playing, except when Mike and Nate are teammates. I'm pretty sure they cheat. I secretly want to call them every day to see if I can come over and play. Wow, now I sound like I'm 7 years old, but I swear the game is that fun.

-I'm going to take some cooking classes in the next few weeks. They're free, but you do have to register. Anybody want to come with me?

-Nate shaved his beard off. His mom will be happy. He just was ready for a change. The beard has been a part of our family for a while now, so I guess the fact that it's gone is blog worthy.

-Valentine's Day is next week. We've got a date planned, reservations made, the works. We're not exchanging gifts, just doing cards and we're each making a playlist of songs that remind us of the other person. I cannot wait for Nate to listen to mine. I've got some awesome songs planned.

Okay, I think that's it. Well, it's all I can think of at the time. I haven't been very good about taking pictures, but I will do better!

So, I think I should give you Mike's work schedule, so you know when we will both be here, and you guys should totally come over whenever you want to play! It is super fun!!!! But I agree... we can't let Mike and Nate be on the same team. It's just too much to handle! :) I would love to go to the cooking classes with you. Can you get me the info? See you on Sunday! Love ya!
