One Down, Eleven to Go

First off, the first post of 2007!!

2006 ended decently; while my Broncos lost, the Packers kicked Da Bears' asses. Who in Wisconsin didn't get emotional watching Brett Favre's interview? Well, I suppose not the Vikings or Lions fans. It'll be a sad day in Cheeseheadland when Brett makes that announcement. Hopefully, it won't be until 2008 so I can see my older brother get insanely pissed over Favre breaking Dan Marino's records.

I should tip a hat of sorts to the Packers (who I actually began to pull for once more near the end of the season), for improving from last year's disaster. Apparently AJ Hawk was the correct pick. I see this team going over .500 in the fall.

As for the Broncos...yes, I was pissed over how that game ended. Royally pissed. However, when I learned that Darrent Williams was killed in a drive-by, pretty much all of Denver forgot that game rather quick.

January began on a sad note. After Williams' death (whick kind of took the fun out of watching the Badgers make school history with their Capital One Bowl win...12-1 is Bucky's best finish, yet they get screwed again in the final poll...I'll rant on that later), my hometown of Ladysmith was hit by some incredibly sad news. The day after, my co-workers and I found out that our elderly lobby worker had died. I guess the old "deaths come in three" adage came true for me. :(

At the end of the week, though, there was a little ray of sunshine. I should flashback to early October, 2006...

I was sitting at the computer browsing when my mom walked in the room.

In our traditional "ask a vague question" style, she said "Did you hear?"

Of course, I said "What?"

Mom said, " You didn't hear?"

"Uh, no."

"We're going to be grandpa and grandma again!"

Well, sitting there, I knew I wasn't pregnant, and my older sister is content with two boys.

My first thought, as usual, was "Turd Boy?" Nope. It's my older brother Chad and his girlfriend. Turd Boy would be a complete moron if he did that during college. Then again, I didn't think Chad was planning on a kid yet.

Back to January, based on the first ultrasound, it looks like I'm finally going to be able to spoil a niece. Yaaay!!

Other than the previous stuff, it's been a quiet month. February will bring Catechism (and the inevitable tradition of keeping six sugar-fueled kindergartners quiet through Ash Wednesday services), a trip to my aunt's to watch Super Bowl XLI, tax time (crossing my fingers in hope that when I file, I'll get most of my cash money back), and Lent.

Speaking of Lent, something will be brought back once again. HINT: Simpsons did it.

For now, it's time to turn in. See you on the flip side, my peeps!
