A Very Cool May and Congrats to the Graduates!!

Have you noticed how cool the weather has been this May? I don’t know about you but it seems kind of odd to wake up on May 16th and it’s only 38 degrees outside. We will have to see what June has in store for us. An older women that I met at our local Antique Mall mentioned that this is the first time she can remember wearing a coat to a graduation ceremony.

Also, congratulations to all the 2009 Graduates! It is an exciting and challenging time to be graduating.  I’m sure all of them will be up for the challenge and will come out on the other side of this stonger and better prepared for the future.

A special congratulations to the Kansas University Graduates!  Rock Chalk Jayhawks!!

My son graduating earlier this year!

Smoke Free 90 Days!

Smoke Free 90 Days!

Wow! Now that’s a new record for me. It’s a miracle that’s for sure, one day at a time. Never underestimate the power of prayer. And I can’t forget the Chantix. I know I couldn’t have made it this far without it.

I have not been going to the gym. I miss going because it is such a great reminder that I no longer smoke. I tend to take it for granted that I am not smoking anymore. Can you imagine? As desperate as I was to stop and all those times I tried, I have now become complacent. When I go work out every step on that treadmill reminds me how lucky I am that I can breathe and still have the oxygen and stamina to walk two or three miles at a pretty good pace. Now if it gives me such a great feeling, why don’t I go? I have a million reasons. I forget to bring my shoes/clothes in the morning, my son works at 5:00 and needs my car most nights during the week, I never think about going in the morning before work, and I never think about going home changing shoes/clothes and then heading for the gym. Okay, no more excuses. I just figured out how I can overcome the minor obstacles I have thrown in my path. After all, I am paying for it every month, I might as well use it, right?

Well, our KU Jayhawks have made it to the Final Four once again. I am so excited. Those kids have worked hard and I hope they go all the way! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

AP Poll has Kansas 7th and Missouri 4th

FoxSports – AP Poll

The polls are out and the standings are final. Missouri is ranked higher than Kansas on both the AP Poll and the BCS Poll. What’s up with that? It has the records on there Missouri 12-2 and Kansas 12-1. Maybe it’s just me but, Kansas should be ranked if not above Missouri than at least only one below. The only team Kansas lost was to Missouri, and that was a fluke. A rematch will show the true more dominant team. It’s too bad we have to wait until next year.

Until then, we will continue to remember, and never forget the 2007 Kansas University Jayhawks Football Team that are the true Champions of College Football.
