Jury Duty

That's right...I've been summoned to court during the month of January. I guess it won't be so bad. I don't have much going on in January and might as well get it over with. I'm looking over the questionaire that they send with the notice and see that they specifically say to use BLACK ink when filling it out. Do you think they'd disqualify me if I use blue???

The parental units are in town

Well, mom & dad made it in safe and sound on Thursday. They brought their cat, Dude, with them and are leaving her here for the winter while they travel. The animals are trying to get used to each other right now. There's been some crazy hissing going on but I'm sure they'll get used to each other eventually.

We made mom go to work with us the next day. I think she had fun hanging out with all the kids at school! They'll be here until Wednesday. Mom and I have appointments on Tuesday for massages and hair-cuts.

We played our second basketball game on Thursday. This time we borrowed two 6th graders that had made the B team. We didn't lose by quite so much but it was still a pretty rough looking game. I think the final score was 16-22?? The girls showed signs of slight improvement so I was happy with that. Hopefully, we can keep improving with each game =)

I leave on Friday for Ktn to chaperone the girls and boys A & B teams. It'll be a quick trip since we'll be back Sat night but it should be fun. The A & B team girls are some of the girls Molly & I coached last year so it's always fun seeing them play.

Lots of Basketball!

Well, the trip to Ketchikan was fast and furious. I watched A LOT of basketball in two days. The Juneau teams did pretty well but unfortunately our plane left before the tournament was over. A lot of the Petersburg and Ketchikan teams got sick. Ketchikan was playing with 7 girls (made up from 2 teams!!) at one point. All of our girls and coaches managed to stay healthy. Or so we thought...This morning I woke up puking. I haven't been able to leave the bedroom all day. I think I'm going to call in sick to work tomorrow. I haven't thrown up in a few hours but I have zero energy. Hopefully, I'll feel back to my old self by Tuesday and ready for the last few days before Thanksgiving break.

Our friends, Matt & Danielle, have been engaged for a while. They are the cutest couple ever. We met them when we lived in Fairbanks and have stayed in touch with them through the years. They've been here to visit us in Juneau a few times and we love having them around.

So, I received the BEST news tonight! Danielle called to ask me if I would marry her and Matt! I am so excited! They totally made my day/night/week/month!!!! They are having a very small wedding in a little town outside of Homer called Seldovia. Then they'll head back to Fairbanks for the reception. I'm going to research more about the town there is a website for those of you interested in checking it out.

Adam performed a wedding ceremony for some friends a few years ago and they bought him a commissioners badge as a thank you gift. I told Danielle that I'll be bringing that with me and will whip it out whenever possible =)
