Spring into action

March 8, 2011

I came to the realization that I am ready for spring...right after the first snow storm! I love the snow and used to be very good at carving out sculptures, but I've found the responsibilities of adulthood somewhat more boring when it comes to snow. Shoveling, compliance with ordinances, paying for snow removal, going to work (what ever happened to a snow day?), etc.

No more "no problem!"

February 18, 2011

I engaged in a conversation with several ladies while picking up jobwork at a local business. One of them told me "No problem" when I asked if she could do something for me and the other lady reminded her that she wasn't supposed to use the negative-sounding statement.

Please put the lid down...

As I was getting ready for work this morning and struggling with my almost-2-year-old daughter to get her ready for daycare, I was reminded how many pet peeves I have. Maybe too many!
Of all the cute and not-so-cute things my daughter does, her whiny, crabby, tantrum-like behaviors get to me the fastest. I can handle the all-out tantrum (I think it's really cute and shows great coordination when she jumps up and down), but the fussy-for-no-reason stuff drives me insane!

To be or not to be romantic...that is the question.

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, my husband is constantly asking "What do you want for Valentine's Day?" Each year, my answer is the same: "Nothing." And each year, he gets me something because he says I'll be mad if he doesn't.

Is he correct? I don't know. I mean, we don't get presents for St. Patrick's Day or President's Day, and it never bothered me. To me, Valentine's Day is just another excuse for marketing something that should be done on a day-to-day basis: tell and show your loved ones that you love them!

Huskers battle Sooners to end conference competition after 89 years

November 29, 2010

Since 1921, Oklahoma and Nebraska have been meeting on the gridiron as confernce foes. This weekend in the Big 12 championship game, this conference rivalry will end after 89 years. During those 89 years, it was the decade of the 70's and 80's that heated the rivalry. It began with the 'Game of the Century' then blossomed in 1973 when Tom Osborne became the new Nebraska coach and Barry Switzer becoming Oklahoma's coach. It was the wishbone vs the power 'I', it was Thanksgiving, for 20 years it was Oklahoma vs Nebraska.

How many of you are going to Lincoln to support the Sargent Bulldogs Monday morning? I will be one heck of a game! Good Luck Bulldogs!

How do you think Sargent will do in the Championship Game?

After the loss to Texas, will the Huskers bounce back?

October 19, 2010

The loss to Texas, showed weaknesses that the Husker coaching staff must fix but I was more disturbed by how unprepared the Huskers were for this game. Offensively, it had been said by almost every sports analyst that the Huskers would not be able to run laterally against the speed of the Texas defense and the Huskers proved them right. The unwillingness of the coaching staff not to pass the ball to open running lanes may have been a mistake but they finally caught on in the fourth quarter which was a little to late.

Bo Pelini may not even need a cute cat to keep the pressure off of him in Lincoln. In this Playoff...
