Finally All Better

So I think I'm finally over whatever nasty virus or whatever I had...this week hasn't been a whole lot of fun, but today I feel normal again...I'm being brave enough to drink some coffee and it's so good.

I'm glad I'm feeling better because I didn't want to miss out on all the Super Bowl munchies on Sunday...I'm looking forward to that. It'll be fun to hang out with friends and family to watch the game on Sunday...I just wish we got NBC in glorious HD...stupid Dish Network, we get ABC and CBS in HD, but not NBC or FOX...I'm still tempted to run out on Saturday and get a powered antenna so we can pick it up over the air; our little rabbit ears inside can't get it.

I believe I'm going to root for the Cardinals in the Super Bowl...I'm guessing the Steelers will win, and I'm always a sucker for the underdog...I just hope it's a good, close game.

So we settled on the name of Adora for the new kitty. She's doing really well. I brought her in to work with me this morning to get the stitches taken out of her leg from the injury she had when they found her. Cosette and Adora are getting along really well considering she's only been here for a week or so. They both sit on my lap together!

Our New Fluffy Friend

For those who don't know...we got a cute little kitty recently. I got it from my morning job at the vet...someone had found it out at Wilderness Park and brought it in. It had an injury on one of its front legs and the tendons and nerves were jacked up, that leg won't ever work. It's really friendly and super cute, so I couldn't resist bringing it home...but now we can't seem to figure out a name for it. We e-mailed people to get suggestions and then narrowed it down to 2, and asked people to tell us their preference, but it's basically a tie, so I thought I'd put it on the blog and see what people think. Here's the names and why:

Journey - because she's been on a journey to get here
Adora - an homage to Princess Adora (SheRa), plus the cat's so ADORAble

I put a poll over on the right for people to vote for the name they like...for whatever reason, I can't get Blogger to upload a couple pictures for me, so I'll put pictures up of the cat when I can, but do vote on which name is cooler.

long time...

So turns out it's been over a month since I updated the 'ol blog! I guess I've been facebooking too much...

So it turns out that I am, in fact, a psychic...either that or I really know my Huskers...on Aug. 22nd, I predicted a 9 win season, counting a bowl win...sure enough we ended up 9-4. It was nice to see us win the games we were supposed to win...that Oklahoma game was sure ugly, but for the most part it was a very nice season to be a Husker Fan...I doubt we'll end up top 25, though. Looking at next year's schedule it's set up to be an awesome year to be a Husker fan. Check this out:

Florida Atlantic
Arkansas State
Virginia Tech
Texas Tech
Iowa State

The games that you can most likely chalk up to losses are the Virginia Tech and the Oklahoma games, but past that...Missouri is going to be a shell of itself next year, ditto for Texas Tech, Iowa State is going to have a new head coach and they just stink, Baylor's getting better, so that one might be a better game than most people think it will be...Kansas is losing its qb and good receivers, K-State is a mess and so is Colorado...our schedule next year reminds me a lot of Kansas' schedule last season...they ended up with a crazy record and in a BCS bowl mostly because they had a horrible schedule...I think we should win the Big 12 North...who knows how we'd do the the Big 12 Championship game, but I think we'll be real good next year...we'll just see who ends up being our starting QB and how he does...
