Mouse Update

One more post. As many of you know, Mouse suffered a stroke three weeks ago. She looked pretty bad when she got back from two nights in puppy ICU:

We had to teach her how to walk again. She is still working on the stairs, but overall is doing really well. We could tell that she was almost fully recovered when we came home to this:

In other words, Mouse is back in the trash.

Here's my peacock friend from El Mexico:

Phones in Toilets

I have NEVER dropped my phone in a toilet, although I have often been falsely accused of doing so. My dear sweet husband (i.e., that dude who took Butler to the final four) HAS dropped his phone in a toilet. And I have dropped mine in a glass of water. So perhaps that is from where the confusion comes?

See you KC folks on Sunday! Pretty excited. I am spending Saturday night in L-town and the Sunday-Tueseday in KC. Should be a good time, although I have to write a prehearing brief while I am there. Uggg. I go to trial in just over a month. SCARY.

Long time no talk...

So obviously this is a little awkward...the Hawks didn't show up in the way that they were supposed to and I'm assuming that's why no one has "had the time" to post on the blog...we are all a little in shock still. Lawrence is a little quiet, the players walk around with their heads down and hoods up, it's pretty depressing. But hopefully next year we will have less pressure on us and we will be able to play basketball the way Kansas does it.

So I was in Florida for a week and did a lot of cool stuff. I went on a one day fun day cruise to the Bahamas and that was amazing. I went waverunner-ing (sp?) on the ocean, which I never thought I would do because I'm terrified of sharks and I actually fell off the waverunner in the middle of the water...ah! I went snorkeling in Key Largo which was also way legit. So no complaints here. I went with Andy, Megan and Matt (who work at Old Chicago) and Kyle and Brit (Andy's roommate and his girlfriend) and we had a ton of fun. Sadly, we stopped off and watched the KU game in West Palm Beach, but the grim outcome made for a quiet 24 hour car rid e home.

Mom and dad got back from dropped her phone in the toilet (sound familiar Mary?) and they said they had a lot of fun so that is good.

What are all of you up to?

Keep me posted.

I'm just getting back in the swing of school and work and its pretty tough, so I'm just doing what I can for now! Rock Chalk...and Go Royals????

I just bought a plane ticket to come home on Saturday, April 3. My visit goes through Tuesday, April 6, "just in case." Can't wait to see you all! And I would like to see this again, too:


Who's that crazy mofo lurking in the background?

Rock Chalk!

Hi all, RCJ.

Well hello, I shall continue to blog and hope that someone out there is reading this...lot going on in Minnesota.

1. The dog.

The biggest thing this past week has been Mousey. She had a stroke on Tuesday. I will not even get into the details, but it was a rough week. She was in doggie ICU for two nights. When we brought her home, she could not walk or stand up at all. We did a lot of doggie physical therapy this week, and now she is walking around the backyard by herself! She is even correcting herself when she starts to wobble. Stairs are still an issue, but we are working on it. She can get up and down the deck stairs with help. I doubt she will ever be able to do the basement stairs. She has a giant dog bed constructed of multiple dog beds in our family room. We think she might be partially blind, which is sad, but dogs are good adapters. She has her jayhawk blanket close by at all times...which leads me to...

2. The 'Hawks. Unstoppable. Not much else to say. Glad I'm not a K-State fan. That would be rough. Glad that our first round is in the evening so I can watch it with full concentration. But why did they put both team that beat us this year AND the team that beat us in the tourney last year all in our region? Rough. I am taking Baylor to the final four, don't steal my pick. Brackets will be in the mail to the Commissioner tomorrow. I got PD a hat so that he will be sporting 'hawks gear constantly in...

3. Mexico. We are gointg on Saturday, despite the doggie stroke. I am so excited. Don't miss me too much. I am also prepared to figure out how to watch the Saturday game, assuming all goes as planned on Thursday. Being in a foreign country will not stop me because I am like the 'hawks. Unstoppable. I shall drink fruity drinks and get a tan, it will be great.

And now, my first round upset pick...I think I will go with Wofford, because their mascot is the Terrier. Woff woof! Hahahaha.

Tis the Season of RCJ

Well, as I commented on Sean's post, work was done on Saturday in Columbia. Just a standard KU/MU matchup. I was sad because we missed almost the entire first 1/2 due to the Villanova game going into overtime and people apparently caring about that. So I had the gamecast on my phone, and the score looked close...I was nervous. CBS kindly took us to KU/MU at about the 3 minute mark...and we watched Kansas score 16 and missouri score nothing. Amazing. Then, for the last two minutes of the game, PD was going wild, cheering for us to win by 20 or more. It was great. He is becoming more and more of a fan each day (even though he won't admit it to Kellermans - he is always telling other people how he is a "true fan" now). I am going to order him a Kansas hat to wear in Mexico.

Speaking of, I am going to miss at least two tournament games, which makes me sad. Hope for the Friday/Sunday draw for the regionals for my sake.

Not much going on up here. The thaw has been happening for about two weeks...and there is still snow, gross, dirty snow, all over the place. It's taking a real long time this year. But spring came early, and it should be a nice one. Paul is doing everything to finish up school and prepare for graduation, which will be happening in December after he student teaches this fall. I am just doing law stuff. Pretty boring, and being domesticated in general. I am working on getting C. Brown into a dog agression class so he can learn to be social with other dogs and not a vicious beast.

I just received the conference room w/ the TV here in the office for 11:30 - 1:30 on Thursday. RCJ.

Hope to here from ya'll soon.

Big 12 Brackets / Update coming soon hopefully

Hello all,

Its been quite a while since I've posted, and hopefully I'll be able to post an update on my current happenings soon (had a GREAT birthday!!! and and AWESOME senior night!!!)

I figured it appropriate to post now since MARCH MADNESS IS UPON US. THAT'S RIGHT.

I'll be e-mailing the bracket out soon to everyone, as soon as the seeds are officially set.

Oh, the Hawks are the Number 1 seed, by the way.

Let's take it one game at a time, and we got Missouri tomorrow. Let's make it yet another W over them. I'll be watching it in the greatest town ever. Let's do some work.

Rock Chalk,
