Mini Concert

This is for all who love to hear Wild Man sing. He performed a mini concert for us the other night. It was much longer than this video, but this was all I recorded. He made sure that Little One's monkey was with him, and the spotlight was on him. You will notice the camera moving some. That is me laughing. You will also hear Little One give her opinion on everything too. Enjoy!

My Personality

I saw this on Junebug's blog, so I thought I would check it out. Here is my personality.

You Are An ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.
You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!

In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart.
You often don't follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts.

At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do.
You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding

When other people don't get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused

Bare Necessities

As many of you know, we are big Disney movie people, so last week when the Jungle Book came out we bought it. It has very quickly reached the top of Wild Man's favorite movie list. We atleast watch part of it everyday.

His favorite song is The Bare Necessities and he has started to sing it alot. Today I got him to sing it for the camera, and thought I would share. Enjoy!

The Decision

Thank you to all who participated in the poll and gave me your comments about whether or not Prof should get a motorcycle. We have a made a decision so I thought I would share it with everyone.
After a lot of research we have decided to buy a motorcycle. We have even picked out which motorcycle we are getting. However, Prof has to get his motorcycle license first. It looks like it will be the first of November before he will have time to take the safety class required. So once he takes the class and then gets his license we will purchase the motorcycle. Oh, and this will be his Christmas present.

Here is a picture of the motorcycle we are pretty much set on getting at this point...

This is a Honda Rebel 2007. It is 3rd on the list of motorcycles least likely to be stolen and the 2nd on the list of motorcycles least likely to be in a wreck.
Prof is very excited and can not wait until he can have it. Merry Christmas Prof!!

The Poll

I just wanted to take a minute and explain why I put the poll up on my blog. Yes, we are considering the possibility of Prof getting a motorcycle. One, of the main reasons we are considering it is because it would be so nice if we had another means of transportation, so that I would not have to wake up at the crack of dawn to take Prof to work on the days I need the car. The purchase of another car is not a possibility at this point. I am sure that everyone reading my blog knows that when I decided to stay home with the kids we took a huge pay cut and we thank God everyday for providing for our needs, since in the world's eyes there is no possible way we should be able to live on what Prof makes at the seminary. So, another car is not in the budget right now. So, a motorcycle just seems to be the most logical way for us to add to our means of transportation.

I put the poll up to see what you guys thought. Please know that the poll in no way will affect the decision we make. I was just curious.

Also, for those wondering. I am not totally thrilled with the idea, but I see how it would help us out some. I know that motorcycles have a bad reputation, but I also think that in most cases it is the driver that is the problem. I have thought a lot about the fact that Prof could be in a motorcycle accident, however I have had several people in my life lose loved ones in a car accident, and we still own a car. So, I don't think the accident argument is a valid one. And, trust me, I have thought about it. I will tell you that if we get one, my prayer life for Prof will grow tremendously, but that is not a bad thing.

So, that is a little bit about the poll. I would love to know what everyone thinks.

How Fitting :Updated 10-4

Every month Initials Inc offers a Customer Special. This is one item that they pick and offer to everyone at a discounted price. For the second month in a row they have chosen an item that it not in the catalog.

For the month of October this beautiful Pale Pink Scarf will be offered to anyone who wants it at only $21.99 (plus shipping and tax). This scarf is not in the catalog and will only be offered during the month of October.

You can view the fonts and font colors available on pages 7-8 of the catalog.

As you know October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. How fitting, to have a Pale Pink Scarf during October.

Honestly, this is the first year I have even thought about the importance of this month. See, Marlene, my former boss who passed away from brain cancer, began her battle with breast cancer. The cancer then spread to her brain, which is what ultimately took her life. It has been right at a year since she passed away and so I can not help but think about the importance of supporting organizations who are searching for a cure to breast cancer.

In memory of Marlene and all other women who have lost their battle with Breast Cancer and for those who have won their battle or are still battling with Breast Cancer, I am donating 10% of every scarf I sell this month to the Susan G Koman Foundation. Order one for yourself, or someone who you know and show your support for finding a cure.
