We are only 5 days into March so this is going to be short.

1. My parents heard from Nick. He hasn't showered since he got to Iraq. That's something like 35 days. In the desert. Not good.

2. I lost my voice. Once I get sick it takes me FOREVER to get better. I'm going on 3 weeks of off and on sickness of all different kinds. The current ailment is a scratchy throat and no voice. Technically, I can talk a little, but it sounds strange enough that Jeremy is calling me a little church mouse. I don't know exactly what that means, but I don't think I want to be one.

I used to love losing my voice. I would scream for the duration of football and basketball games trying to get hoarse. And I was a LOUD cheerleader. It's been a long time since I haven't been able to talk and it turns out, I don't like sounding like this anymore. My patients and coworkers don't like it either. I don't do well not talking. Time for my voice to come back home.

And 3. I'm going to be an AUNT! Again. But this time it's Chrissi having a baby so it feels different. She officially broke the news on her blog yesterday so I guess now I'm allowed to talk about it. I'm so excited for her. She'll be so cute pregnant. Chrissi and Hootie will be great parents and with both sets of grandparents living so close, that baby is going to be spoiled rotten. She is due on September 7th, but I'm hoping the baby will decide to come two days late so it's birthday will be 09/09/09. We'll see.

That's all for March so far. The old "In like a lion, out like a lamb" saying seems to be true this year because right now it is snowing like crazy. Hopefully this will be the last big snow of the year. I'm ready for spring.

Yeah, I just found this page. I didn't even know it existed. I am so excited for Chrissi. I disagree with the part about it being spoiled because of the Grandparents. THE AUNT ASHLEY will be the ultimate spoiler. Well, we can even just get together quick at TAco Time, I don't really care. I just want to see all the girls again, and with you there. ALL of my family will be up there so I'm sure I'll be busy either way. Just call me. Love you!

Okay, well I totally want to see you! But I don't even care if it's at Taco Time. As you can imagine, I will have a lot of family in town for Braydon's wedding, so I'm sure I'll be busy. You just let me know darling!
Oh and why do you say that Chrissi's baby will be spoiled by the Grandparents. You are going to be the Ultimate Spoiling Aunt, I'm sure! Congrats Aunt Ashley :0)
Love ya!
