Why not help me do it?

As you can see, the red peg (Adam) is all the way to the right. The green peg (Meredith) is lagging far behind. Yes, I have won the championship outright: 7 games to 3. Cribbage. A gentleman's game. A game not to be associated with riff-raff games played in taverns and boat dock shacks. No, it is a riff-game played by white-collar workers in country club bars. A game shared by pharmacists, lawyers, and doctors while smoking cigarettes after retiring from their practice. A game played every Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas by Argo families far and wide. "The stink hole is a dark place. It's a dirty shame," Bill Argo would say. And that is exactly where he'd leave you.

vandergriff is fun-deriff

Today, I got to take care of sore throats, hurting tummies, itchy eyes, headaches, and one bloody lip. I took many temperatures, and even managed to explain what "engaged" means to a 5 year old who told me that I looked awesome after she rearranged my hair. (She asked me this after a series of questions about the two rings on my finger.)

I like taking care of people. and playing with kiddies.

School is going to be hard this semester, but hey..I'm on my way out. "It's all in how you handle it."

a lot to be thankful for.

It is an icy day, but our hearts are warm and we are blessed.

Adam's birthday was on the 7th, and I made a chocolate cake!

Our friends are wonderful to us, and our lives are all the more merrier with them around. Thank you, friends. We love you.

We recieved a digital camera for Christmas, so hopefully we will liven up this blog with a few pictures every now and again.

Happy 2007 everyone!
