Tomorrow in the offices the year on the stamps will be altered;
Tomorrow new diaries consulted, new calendars stand;
With such small adjustments life will again move forward
Implicating us all; and the voice of the living be heard:

Us who need you, and are affected by your fortune;
Us you should love and to whom you should give your word.”

So after I wrote a portion of this I went to No Frills, I walk past the bakery & smelled cinnamon rolls. They had just pulled them out of the oven. I got two of them, now that’s a good family friendly way to start the day.
Saw Sam there too.
I’m now making lasagna for dinner, it shall be yummy. I will have some salad & some garlic bread to go with it. Its okay to be jealous, cause I’m sure you won’t be getting any of this that I’m making.

So there is a live webcast of University of Nebraska Hockey. Let’s go MAVS! Yesterday was a solid day for the basketball team according to II news outlet. NO apparently the sports director & announcer paid no attention to the game. WE sucked it up good at Ralston Arena.
What are you doing today?
I watched Lincoln, and I preferred Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter better.
IF you follow me on twitter you see the hashtag #CYCM. It is from this song we sang at church yesterday.
What else should I share with you today?
Well have a great day!!!

Well this will be it for now.
Please behave yourselves tonight, and tomorrow. Sunday you can do what you want.
