Just a couple of things....

First of all...congrats to David Cook for winning Season 7 of American Idol. He did a bang up job this season and won me over. I'll admit I didn't want to like him. But his originality and rock edge were hard to NOT like. You know? Plus, he fixed his ugly hair. This picture doesn't do him justice at all. This was from the beginning of the season when it was ugly. It's so much better now. And the soul patch is gone. Whew!

And then, I must tell you...I am typing this post.....

in my basement.

Yes, that's right. The computer has been moved into our little nook downstairs. It's perfect sized for our computer desk, filing cabinet, and bookshelf for my school stuff. I may just live in here. I'm on the computer enough....

I am loving this whole moving in process. Maybe because we're not really "moving", but finally able to fully unpack and put things away. And I can do it little by little at my own pace and do it in an orderly fashion. You know...the PROPER way. Instead of piles of boxes everywhere. This is way better.

Final thought here....

We had a friend over for dinner tonight. He's been a friend of Jaysen's since high school. I met him when Jaysen and I were dating. Awesome guy. He's been having a rough time this last year. My heart has gone out to him, but we haven't been able to connect because he's "Jaysen's friend". That sounds weird. What I mean is...though we get along great, it's more like acquaintences, even though it's been over 4 years. Tonight though....we were chatting and we found a link....a common thread....and he lit up! It was awesome. I know this sounds wierd....and I'm rambling here...but he immediately changed. It was like a switch. He realized I knew a little bit more about what he was going through than most. He wasn't alone.....and I love that I was able to help him see that. Maybe I really am going into the right profession. :0) He was so excited he left and came back and brought us movie bucks. It was so funny! :0) We thought he had left for the night, so when he walked back in I made fun of him. {Because that's what I do} He knew we were going to the movies this weekend and so he went and got them for us as a thanks for dinner. {We've fed him numerous times....}

I don't know if any of that even made sense...or if maybe you are wondering why I rambled on about it. It was just a real warm fuzzy for me tonight. I am going into Psychology and to know that I really can make a difference and help others to feel better is amazing. I can do this! And, I made a friend in the process. He's not just Jaysen's friend anymore! :0)

I hope you have a fabulous evening. Don't forget to watch So You Think You Can Dance tomorrow night! It's almost as good as American Idol!

I was quite surprised it was Cook over Archuleta after how the Finale went. I did like both of them and hey, you can't really feel bad for Archuleta. It's not like he'll be out of a job.

Congrats on getting your basement finished!

DC rawks. All my votes musta helped. Plus, all Archeletta's fans were already all in bed before the voting ended. Tee-hee.

You all guessed it, I was still holding out for Arculetta. I realize I have not commented for a while, sorry about that. Let us know how Indiana Jones it, I want to see it.

They both were great and will both have cd's that I will want to buy. I am glad that you helped someone out. That always makes you feel good. I could have told you that you would be a good counselor because you didi it for me many times.

We didn't like David Cook at first either. It is amazing what having a stylist can do. I want one. (Should I scream and kick and throw a fit:)?) I'm curious who the friend was. You will have to email me. I think Psychology is perfect for you.
