I can see it now , the Dunbar crew decked out in Dodger Blue, eating Dodger Dogs, sipping on diet coke (lemonade for the lil' ones), nachos, garlic fries, and the crowd shouting "Manny, Manny, Manny!!!" I'll be able to see him up close, because we'll be in field level seats behind home plate, right DAD???
If anyone else would like to offer us free tickets, we'll be sure to take them off of your hands.

Friday is my birthday. I'll be thirty. Yup, that's right, THIRTY! (Crazy, and I can't seem to forget it because my good friend Erin has told me every day for a week.)
But in the midst of my reflecting time, and upon hearing Tim McGraw's Next 30 Years, I've started to wonder what the next 30 years of my life will look like. Am I going to get fat? Get wrinkles and grey hair? How long will I be able to stay home? Will I be a soccer mom or a baseball mom? Will Scott's job take us out of state? Or keep us here? All of these questions run through my mind... But what's more important, what am I going to do intentionally in my life for the next 30 years? Of course I want to be a good wife, an attentive mom, a reliable friend, but what is at the core of all of this?
My purpose is to live a life that is a reflection of Him. Can you start a new year's resolution on your birthday? I am. I am recomitting my life to being 'set apart.'
(And also to start dying my hair every six weeks!)

Hold Bogie with left arm.
Grab toothbrush with right, stick handle end in mouth , grab toothpaste.
One handedly open with right hand, sqirt toothpaste and wet.
While brushing teeth, continue to hold Bogie, close shower doors, hang towels, kick dog toys out of bathroom, move kids' toys back to basket, put combs away.
Move Bogie to right arm because left is about to give out.
Monkey: "Mommy, you got make-up on Mommy?"
Mommy: "Yes, Monkey. Do you think I look pretty?"
Monkey: "No, you look ugly!!" (Walking away laughing says "Silly, mommy.")
Guess I have some work to do on raising a gentleman.
