Long Lost Friend

Lauren and I have joined Rotaract. We wanted something to get involved in a club. Rotaract is a club for 18-30 year olds that is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Paducah. I went to the Rotary lunch with Pat (my boss) the other day to the at the Irvin Cobb Hotel. The first person I saw that I knew was Amy. It has been over 5 years since we have seen each other. We didn't get a chance to talk but a couple of seconds in the food line. I know her from my first job out of college. I was just a young buck and she was the accountant at Gresham Architectural Firm. We had the best time there at that office. I also knew her from the CD store I worked at in college. The day of my interview I walked in and there she was. I was thinking that I knew her from somewhere and we later found out that she would come in there almost weekly. Time has pasted and both of us had new jobs, we both married and she has had three beautiful kids. I emailed her today and we are going to keep in touch. I always really liked talking to her and missed her when our careers went separate ways. She is a good friend that I wished we could have kept closer contact over the years. We have been emailing back and fourth and hope to see her more at Rotary in the future. Thanks for everything Amy!

What going on

Whats going on in my life:

Lauren is in law school (an unaccredited law school) and the dean told her that they were not going to file for accreditation again until the fall of 2009. Since the law school is unaccredited then if she graduates that means she can't take the bar. Unless she petitions the Kentucky Supreme Court which is a good chance they will say NO! So she is trying to apply to SIU Carbondale but then she would have to quit her job and loose her health insurance. Now with Crohns Disease it is not easy to get health insurance but if she gets it, it will be 400 to 500 dollars a month. But not only will she quit her job the first year of school would transfer, so that means two of her three years of the unaccredited law school would be down the gutter. All that time and money waisted.

We have also hung out with Nick, Terra and Todd here recently and playing "Sing Star" a karaoke game for Playstation 3. It is pretty cool. I have been getting very cocky here lately with it because I have been kicking everyone ones BUT!!! HAHA

Nanny Champion has the best fried chicken. We ate last night over there. We had turnip greens, mac and cheese, rolls, corn bread, pickles, and everything bad for you. Nick has a new job being a sales rep for Holland Grills. He has to do demos and tonight he has to practice for this coming up weekend and Grilling Boston But and Chicken. So we are happy we don't have to cook for two nights in a row. Well I don't have to. Lauren is making Potato salad.

I have also been hitting the gym here recently. I think that I'm a little stressed out from Lauren's Law School problems & Nick and Nanny's good food. Nick, Terra and Todd have been going with me on occasion and it is so much better when someone goes with me. See church has a magnificent Gym. It is the latest and greatest gym without the membership cost. They have several treadmills and elliptical machines plus all the free weights you could want.

Twice in the past two weeks Lauren has walked in on me watching Hanna Montana on ABC Saturday Mornings. A little embarrassing but darn it there is nothing else on. We only get about 20 channels. We are cheap and we don't watch TV much.

I'm not the biggest NBA fan. However I despise big headed Kobe Bryant.
