They aren't kidding. This huge grasshopper was on our screen the other day. It was 3 inches long and the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. My hand is there as a reference. Don't worry it was outside on the screen and my hand was safely inside on the glass. The sky here is HUGE and the sunsets are gorgeous.
The biggest thing in Texas...my HEART. It loves this girl so much. Notice the nice red mark on her cheek. It was our first big owie. She was kneeling and took a dive onto her toy box. I am afraid this won't be the last of her owies. The same day she hit her head on the entertainment center. Poor girl.
Our computer got a virus. It has been getting fixed all week. I have felt somewhat out of it not having a computer. The other day I called Jim at school and asked him if he would check my email for me. He opened my email and said I think you should go to the library and read your email there are way too many. I had forgotten how nice it is to just check my email throughout the day. Although I must admit it was nice not having that distraction during the day. I like to look up a lot of things on the Internet. Especially living in a new city I will pass by a store or a restaurant and if I haven't heard of it before I will go home and google it. That is how I have found some of the "gems" here in Lubbock. We leave to go home for the holidays in less than a week. I am so excited to hang out with my husband without school or work for 3 weeks. Also, I am going to get to meet my nephew Riley for the first time. My brother Brad and his wife are coming in from San Juan Island, Washington. It will be the first time my whole family has been together since their wedding 3 years ago. I am looking forward to spending time with family and friends!!
