Cozie Blog

Life is nice when you're Cozie

I’m one bad blogger, eh?  I almost gave up on blogging entirely, but then I remembered that I have almost 3 years worth of useless history that I am particularly attached to on here.  So alas, I blog on.

These last few weeks have been jammed packed full of interesting-ies.  Like my co-worker giving me 7 passes to Dollywood for free.  We only had to buy one child’s ticket for my whole family to get in ($30).  Bobo and Dippy actually went on rides for the first time in their lives.  Dip’s biggest one was the ferris wheel, and Bobo accidentally made a deal with me to go on every ride that I went on.  Me, Miss Where’s The Biggest Coaster?  We started out with a small one and he SCREAMED the entire time, "Get me off this thing!  I’m gonna die!  How do you stop this?!?!" 

And oh boy was it cold that day.  We also ran into some friends of our’s that we haven’t seen in a year.  AND the highlight of that day was tricking mom onto a roller coaster.  She can hardly ride in the car without having heart palpitations.  Half of the coaster was inside and she didn’t realize that the loopity loops and upside downs and twirlies beside the building were part of the same ride.  From the time it started to the time it ended she whooped, screamed, hollered, squealed and above all, threatened bloody murder.  I never laughed so hard in my life, even though my hand was being crushed the entire time.  She wouldn’t talk to us for 30 minutes afterward.

I was pulled over 10 minutes from our house because one of my headlights was out.  It all would have been fine and dandy but I didn’t have my proof of registration and insurance with me.  I know that’s brainless and all, but its true.  So I got a multiple offence citation which I took care of last week.

Christmas was wonderful.  I didn’t know that Jessica and Charley sent three HUGE boxes of stuff and I was shocked when I came out and saw half our living room filled with presents.  And I got a CD PLAYER FOR MY CAR!!!!!!!!!!  I was more than a little excited.  And a beautiful cross necklace that Charley made.  Yippity Do Da.

Grandma and Grandpa Olbrich, along with Erin (my aunt that is a year older than I am) and Great Grandpa Bolen (who Bobo is named after) came down here a few days after Christmas and many games of Pinochle were played.  ‘Twas quite fun.

That basically wraps up the last few weeks except that I got an email from my cousin Brandon who is over in Iraq.  I haven’t heard from him in a while but he should be back in the US around June and might get stationed within driving distance from us.  WOOHOO!  I haven’t seen him for about 6 years and he has a wife and baby boy that I’ve never met.  Please pray for his safety and more importantly- his salvation. 

Tata for now!
