I have been sick for the last five days and it has been a drag.  My mind was functioning well below normal level and I was in a zombie like state for most of this week.  It was not fun.  

Why am I telling you this?  Mostly because I have to blog today.  I know that is not a great answer but when I blog I tend to blog about what is happening or what has been on my mind.  This week, I haven’t done much or been able to think much and this blog is a reflection of that point.  

However, today I am starting to feel better.  The sun actually came out today and hopefully that means we are getting closer to spring.  When spring comes it will be time to start a garden and I am really looking forward to that.  A lot of my plants have been started (indoors) already and are a couple inches tall.  

With spring getting here it also means that it is time for us to start planning for NACMA.  Robert and Ashley are planning out our booth and figuring out how to make best use of our space.  Dustin is starting to work on some fun things and we are all excited about the conference this year.  I don’t want to jump to conclusions but it’s going to be pretty awesome.  So book your rooms and get excited because we will see you all in June!

Norman has been getting a lot more snow than normal lately... but no, that is not a picture of Norman. We don't have mountains. So I went to Colorado to strap a board to my feet and slide down some slopes. I haven't been snowboarding in over two years because the last time I went didn't end very well (let's just say I Lindsey Vonn'd my knee before Lindsey Vonn and then Kobe Bryant did it #trendsetter). So I was a little nervous strapping my feet back in and riding up the lift. Even my first run down wasn't very great because I was just in my head too much and didn't let my body do what it knew how to do. It was pretty frustrating because I knew exactly what I was doing wrong, I just had to get my nerves to chill. Then, on the second run, when I finally got out of my head I was back to normal and having a blast. I had actually forgotten how fun snowboarding could be. So yeah, if at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again.

Also, does it bother anyone else that Maroon 5's new song "Sugar" sounds almost exactly the same as Katy Perry's "Birthday"? They even have the same video concept.  

 

P.S. I would much rather have Katy crash my bday than Maroon 5 crash... anything of mine (unless they promise to only play songs from "Songs About Jane").

So yesterday was my day to blog, and I completely forgot because I got wrapped up in a new Old Hat Project that is really, really cool!  I am not going to say too much about it, but will give you a clue.  It involves neat logos like these:

So why to picture of my dog in the snow?! Because nothing is as cool as my dog in the snow!
