I've arrived - I'm dead tired after a 26-hour trip down here including all the layovers. The longest leg of the trip (LA to Manila) was at night, but I didn't get to sleep much. When we did land in Manila, the entire plane shouted and cheered. I turned to the other eBay employee with me and said, "Are they cheering because it was a successful landing or they are glad to be home?" I think it was the latter. The plane was decent and was a 747, so there were a ton of people in the plane.

Right now I am listening to the BYU game on podcast. I just started the second quarter and I am all right with they way they have played.

Here are some pictures of the trip down and my hotel:

Here is downtown Manila. I am actually in the city of Cebu though.

Here are the views out the window of my hotel.

I'll be missing you

Well, we are past the point where the count down begins. Kirk leaves in 2 days! I don't know how I am going to make it through the next 3 weeks without having a break down! I usually base my day on how many hours till Kirk will be home, "one more hour....I might make it." Now it will be more like, "2 weeks 6 days 14 hours, I might make it." "2 weeks 6 days 13 and a 1/2 hours. I don't think I am going to make it."
But how cool is it for him! Not cooking for 3 weeks, not cleaning for 3 weeks, no laundry for 3 weeks, uninterrupted sleep for 3 weeks.
Oh well.
Most of all I am just going to miss him. Miss him calling me just to say hi. Miss the slug bugs, the Nissan nudges and PT Cruisers. Miss his kisses at the 3 scheduled times and the other unexpected times. Miss watching The Simpsons and talking after the kids are asleep.

Love you Stubbi. Have a good time!

Can I Just Say: Wow

If this doesn't get you excited, there's a team up north called the Utes. You should cheer for them.

Red's Bed

We moved Redick out of his crib last night. It could have been worse and it could have been better. He seemed to like the idea that he could get out of bed all by himself because he exercised that option multiple times last night. I thought the best part was when I woke up to go work the paper, I found him asleep on the floor. Either he fell out of bed or got of bed but was too exhausted to walk into our room to say hi that he just collapsed. Either way, I found it quite amusing. It was too dark to take a picture, but this is him when we first showed him the bed. He grabbed a book and went to bed.

Loved it!

My house is trashed and my kids are bouncing of the walls, but I just finished Breaking Dawn. I loved it! It was my favorite one. Still love Edward. I was a little bugged by the "imprinting" stuff. Seems alittle sick to me. Other than that, really good book. I am so glad I waited in line for it!
