Bragging rights...

Well, I'm here taking a break at work, and I just checked my wife's blog. Apparently she has made another post to try and one-up me. Well, it's not gonna happen! I don't know how many of you know, but Jenny got me a small fridge for Christmas that I can put in my cube at work. On Saturday we went and moved it in. So, all day today I have been enjoying ice cold water and I just finished a nice, cold orange. Men, these are the sorts of things that can happen to you when you stand out in the cold at 4 in the morning for some weird machine that supposedly makes craft-making easier. Work has been really slow the last few weeks. The only people that are here are those that have only been here a few years. It's going to be strange when everybody comes back and we actually have real work that needs to be done. Well, I hope everybody has a great New Year's!

Hangin' out with the grandpas

This last week Jenny and I had the opportunity to spend some time with my Grandpa Fuhriman and her Grandpa Flint. Last Sunday Jenny, myself, Chris, Nat, and my mom all drove up to Providence (near Logan) to see my mom's dad, Grandpa Jake. It was a great visit. Grandpa sat and told Jenny and I all about how he and my late Grandma met, were married, and how they have passed on their legacy to their children. Right after my grandma died, my grandpa bought a new train set and set it up in his basement. So, picture this (I've posted a picture to help you), you've got a 92 year old man who looks like he's a kid again when he gets down on his knees and starts playing with his new train set. It was a great time.

Then, on Wednesday night, Jenny and I were able to take her dad and grandpa to see the Jazz take on the Mavs. I was pretty skeptical about their chances going in, but they pulled it off. It was Grandpa Flint's first time at a Jazz game, so I guess it's a good thing that they won. Grandpa Flint is a big Jazz fan and he watches all of their games from home on tv. When we found out that we had four tickets to the game, we thought maybe we should take him. When I called to tell him what time we would pick him up, he told me that he had never been to a game before. It was a great opportunity to watch a good game and enjoy each other's company.

To quote Frank Costanza; you want it, you got it!

I've been sick the last few weeks so I haven't felt up to updating the ol' blog. I'm still not feeling well, but I'm better than I was. As I'm typing this, I'm watching an episode of The Office. I love watching this show, but it is also very strange for me. The reason is the fact that every time I see Michael, it reminds me of my old boss at KeyBank. Basically they are the type of people who think that they're the coolest boss and vastly more intelligent than everyone else. This results in them being the lamest boss and you are frequently reminded of their stupidity. The best part is that they are completely oblivious to the fact that everyone sees right through them. The similarities are freaky.

Have you ever been to a day-after-Thanksgiving sale? Well, Jenny and her sister had this plan to go to Robert's Crafts the morning after Thanksgiving to buy something called a Cricut. Well, Jenny got really sick right before Thanksgiving. I decided to take one for the team (team meaning wife). So, at 4 am I was standing outside of Robert's Crafts in Clinton, waiting to buy a Cricut. Not only that, but I was first in line. You know what they say; go big or go home. Well, I'm going to end this post now because the power keeps flickering. I apologize for the completely unorganized thoughts. Cut me some slack, man, I'm sick.
