I'm so excited!

So, I have a LOT to be excited about over the weekend. Let's see. Well, I got my hair cut today, which I think looks amazing on me, thank you very much. It had been SIX MONTHS since the last time I got it cut. Yeah....I'm kinda lazy as far as hair appointments go. Anyway, haircut was today, and then tomorrow my coworker is going to help me touch up my dye job. Yay! I'll be all beautiful and stuff for the weekend. Sweet!

So this weekend is hockey mania weekend, at least for us. Believe it or not, Brett and his mom have totally converted me to the way of the hockey fan. Yeah. I was a little hesitant at first, but now I'm just as crazy as the rest of them. So Friday evening we're going to the Blues/Wild game here in St. Louis with a couple from church. Right after that, we're leaving to drive up to Ohio to spend the weekend with my in-laws. (Can I just insert here with no ulterior motive that I seriously hit the jackpot when it came to in-laws? They are such awesome people!) We'll get to Ohio in the very wee hours of the morning. Then (as in, that day) we're driving over to Pittsburgh to watch the Penguins/Devils game. I'm so excited! Since this is the last season they'll be playing in the Igloo, Brett really wanted to make sure I got to go to a game there. After the Pens game we'll head back to Ohio and actually spend some time with Brett's parents not being all hockey-crazy.

Brett and I have been counting down to our hockey games for at least a week. My coworkers are probably so sick of hearing about it, but I just can't help it. I'm so psyched! Gah!

Okay, calming down now, or at least trying to. The other people in the library are going to start looking at me funny. Which reminds me to mention that our computer has, like, AIDS or something. Just kidding, it's not a virus. There's something going on, we think with the wiring, that makes the screen white-out. It's really agitating.

One last thing about this weekend. I'm at a mixture of nervous/excited about this one, I'm not really sure which one I'm feeling more. I've been in contact with Scott, my biological father, for a few years now. Basically we've just emailed and chatted online occasionally. Well, I've agreed to meet with him (finally), so he and his wife are coming up this way to have lunch with Brett and I tomorrow. I guess I'll have to write more after this weekend. I don't really know how this is going to turn out, or even what to expect, hence the nervousness. I have a very healthy fear of the unknown. But I guess we'll just have to see, and hope for the best.


  1. Wow! That is a lot of exciting stuff. We need pics of the hair and details on the trip when you get home. I hope your lunch turns out how you'd like it. I can't imagine what a big thing this is to do. We'll be thinking of you.

  2. Ditto to Heathers comments. We hope that you are satisfied with the results of the lunch. The rest of the weekend sounds like a blast. Good luck.
