It's been 9 days without....

And randomly it started working - I'm not sure for how long, but I'm going to take advantage of this moment and email resumes to possible job opportunities....and post a blog :)
It was a pretty slow week - which then lead to a great weekend.
Starting last Friday - Neil and I played tennis for bit, which is our newest thing. I'll post pictures soon, I promise. All of us that hang out here have chosen to get in "the best shape of our lives" and we're hoping we'll achieve that by the end of summer. Tennis is an outdoor activity that we've all agreed on - have rackets to play - and we're all terrible at it...but it's soooo much fun.
On a more "adorable" note: Baby Arrival!!! Evelyn Louise Beckman is here...This is the only picture I have of her, more to come of course...
6lbs 11oz at 1:08pm on June 20th, 2008

We went to visit her at only 4 hours old, and she is precious. I almost set up camp in their room because I didn't want to give her up. Congratulations Laura and Jon!!!!!
Saturday, we played tennis again - this time with Adam. We dealt with some light rain, but then called it a day when it started to pour. Life in Erie...I'm getting used to such circumstances. Later that night we went to the Atzerts home to watch some UFC fight, and better yet - to play with their son Owen who is so much fun.
It is now Tuesday, and I'm completely sore all over. We've played tennis 3 days out of 4 - and I'm totally addicted. I want to play every day!! Maybe I'll lose some weight...maybe 30 lbs to be exact? :) What do you think? Is this possible?
FYI. I've now watched 5 seasons of "24" in 4 weeks...with one more season to go to be all caught up.
I need a job, don't I?

24 - I "heart" Jack Bauer

My man, Jack Bauer

Just so you all know, I've been completely obsessed with this show "24" - Our good friend Sean bought us the 1st season, probably 2 years ago, and we only sat to watch a couple episodes. A couple weeks ago I decided I'd try it again, I have NOTHING else to do. I was hooked. Since he owns all of the seasons on dvd, I've had access to watch this show to catch myself up until the new season starts. Believe me when I say, I'll have plenty of time before the 7th season comes around. There are a total of 6 seasons, and I'm already on season 4. I can actually re-watch all of them again if I wanted - which I think I'm going to do....

I love this show...

Week of events...

This week was pretty productive. Riding bikes around the peninsula...playing with Andy in the yard...going out on Lake Erie...watching our favorite Erie band...
I think this non-working life is starting to get a little too comfortable for me.
Some pictures to highlight these events...

Ridin' around the lake:

We ended the week by going to Forward Hall to see Jesus Wept play... it was a great week.

Rivalry continues!!!!

Tonight, we go back in history to one of the oldest rivalries in NBA history. The NBA championships go underway between the Boston Celtics & Los Angeles Lakers. Larry Bird versus Magic Johnson - now, Kevin Garnett versus Kobe Bryant. No question, it'll be a fight to the end.

Stay tuned.

Go Lakers!!!!!
