So tonight is the BIG game...MU vs UCONN, #10 vs #2. I am so excited for this game, T minus 4 hours. I am convinced this is the year for MU to go big or go home this coming NCAA tourney. Jeff, I, his parents, and Ig and Anne are planning on following MU for the first and second round of the NCAA tournament. Now obviously we do not know where they will end up playing until selection sunday. But, they could end up in one of eight places; Boise (yuk), Minneapolis, Miami, KC, Dayton (Jeff's Alma mater), Miami (nice), Greensboro, Portland, and one more place that I cannot remember. We are really hoping for MN, it is drivable which is a huge plus, also they have a casino, which makes everyone in our group happy. Ig just sent me an e-mail about potential sites MU could end up, all based on the seed they receive. I am sure most people don't really care about this, but I am super psyched. We will see, its a tough schedule ahead, still have to make it through Louisville and Pitt. We will see, but for now...GO WARRIORS!!!!

I love Wednesday's...not

Does everyone know that I hate Wednesday's???? I swear, the kids know that I don't like Wednesday's, and they know how to push every button. Jeff bowls on Wednesday, which makes for a really long day, because he doesn't come home before bowling. On another note, I love having the evening (once kids go to bed), to myself. I can actually use the GUIDE on the TV to find out what is on. The aforementioned post notes the channel surfing nonsense. My Wednesday nights are pretty much the same. Clean up mess from kids, maybe exercise (usually wed is my off day), get jammies on, throw a load of laundry in, pour myself a glass of wine, and watch some TV. I should probably read a book, like the book club book I should be reading, or maybe studying for my personal training exam. I do enjoy the Wednesday's after Maddy and Winn are sleeping! I enjoy then when they are awake too...but in a different way:)

Book Club

I am bound and determined to make the next book club, unless I am down for the count like last time. I just purchased the new book, Revolutionary Road, which is now a movie with Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio (did I spell that right). No, Jeff, its not TITANIC, which I think is Jeff's least favorite movie. There are a number of movies that when Jeff is channel surfing (lets touch on that later), that he tries to quickly pass up as though I never saw them. But I do! I few are Footloose, any Die Hard movies, Oceans Eleven or 12 or 13 or 14 or 15, Fried Green Tomatoes, and the list goes on. I could watch any of these movies at any given time and not be tired of them. So...I got the book and will start my read. First I have to catch up on my Tivo shows...priorities you know!
