Last night we went to a very exciting KC Royals baseball game. They have a fabulous military deal: free admission for the soldier and three family members. We had great seats and a heck of a game.

We've been back to Walmart too.

My mother-in-law also told a good story. My husband and I were out yesterday and she ran out to the drugstore. She was chatting in line when she suddenly remembered that she hadn't put Charlie in his crate. She said out loud, "Oh no, I left Charlie in the backyard! He's only one, but he should be OK since I haven't been gone very long." The store manager almost called the cops until she realized that Charlie was a puppy and not a kid!

Tomorrow we're traveling to Kirksville for the day to visit our alma mater. It'll be interesting to see how it's changed.

And I'm dying to buy a cell phone. This ringtone thing is out of control. I've already got my sights on the Dallas theme song...

Isn't being home just great! The first thing we did before we even had a house was buy 2 cell phones! I don't even know why I have one. I never use it. I guess I just feel cool since everyone else has one.

We did the same thing after one week on the ground. We were walking in the mall in Dallas and wandered into Sprint and walked out with two phones. I use mine, but D rarely uses his. Soon his won't be used at all until 2007.

Why are we drawn to cell phones?

BTW, I went old school with the ringtone, Planet Rock. Makes me wanna break dance everytime it rings! :)

If you take I-70 out there, overshoot your exit a little bit and run by Kingdom City. There is a truck stop restaurant out there called Gasper's that is really good, or used to be.

I'm laughing at Angie's comment...I think owning a cell phone is a pre-requisite for "being cool" in the US. Sometimes I wonder how I survived for almost 3 years in Germany without one...then again, I don't remember missing it that much!
