Greetings from Omaha. I realize I am a bad blogette for not blogging in a long time. However, I don't exactly care. Traveling kind of sucks the life out of me. I have enough life tonight to blog... hooray.

Special shout out to my birthday friend Melissa! So glad I got to see her this weekend!

Now, on with the fun. Only two weeks left of travel for me. It's almost unbelievable how quickly it's gone. I have to say that I might like Omaha even better than Minnesota. I was blessed to get some zoo time. I will add some pictures. At the zoo, I had a zoo volunteer with time on her hands who personally walked me through the zoo. It was such a treat! I really felt like God blessed me with a little friend. I got back and the hotel upgraded me to a suite. I also got to go to the Durham museum today. It's been a pretty terrific week outside of work.

Inside of work, well, Omaha kids really like the Huskers. Boo! I have had a couple of just fantastic visits with enthusiastic kids. A few of my visits only had one kid. One was a no-show. I offended a ton of kids when I said that we killed the big N in football. But, I only speak the truth! The kids that I have seen have been great--the counselors too.

I am ready to go home and see my husband! I am also ready for that extra hour of sleep on Sunday. Hooray for sleep! I haven't worked out all week because of a stinky cold. Maybe an extra hour of sleep would be just what I need.

On an unrelated note, one of the bloggers I read consistently just had her beautiful baby boy. Her son was originally told he would not live because of a heart condition. He is not only alive but he is doing so well, he isn't even in the NICU. God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good. If you have an extra second, head over to or just say a quick prayer. What a cool blessing.

Well, I am off to a bubble bath but I will try to keep up more in the future. Here are some pictures for the road.

Here's to awesome zoos and wonderful women who bless your path.

  1. Freakin cool, dude. I'd have loved to have accompanied you on that zoo tour! I remember the last time I went to the Omaha zoo with G-ma Walter when I was a little tyke.
