The Biggest Loser

So, I have effectively become addicted to the Biggest Loser. Do you watch this show? It's probably the only thing during the week that I have to tape if I miss it. (I know, I know, TiVo would help in this situation...but we're trying to save money.) Anyway, I have been following along and cannot believe the hard-headed people that are competing this season. I have decided who I want to win...but I won't tell you right now. I think it's amazing to watch people step onto national television and agree to step on a scale once a week in front of that same audience. They work their tails off, get yelled at by thier trainer, and consistently lose 8, 9, 10 pounds a week. I can't remember the last time I lost 10 pounds in a week! Maybe gained 10 pounds in a week, but not lost it....

It's been a what?

I have been so busy lately because in addition to my job of teaching fifth grade, I am also doing my practicum this year in educational administration. I am gaining a great deal of experience and learning much, but it is quite the time killer. We are also helping with the Sparks in our church's Awana program on Wednesday nights. On Thursday nights we are taking Financial Peace University taught via dvd by financial advisor, Dave Ramsey. Whew...AND....the election has, as I have said, captured my attention this year.

Last weekend, we took some time to travel to see the movie Fireproof. Have you seen it? It was SO good. It was made by the same company that produced Facing the Giants, but I think Fireproof was much better. I really enjoyed the movie and was glad we spent the time and moolah to travel 2 hours to see it.
