William Jewell College, Baker University, Johnson County Community College

I start teaching a new 6 week session next Monday. I'm teaching two classes this time. One I've already taught. The other one is brand new for me and called Accounting Information Systems. Prepping for this class is taking a lot of time but I'll be ready.

I still think some day I want to quit corporate life and teach full-time at a college. I would think someone would hire a guy with a CPA, MBA and 20 some years of experience and strong leadership skills. If I just had contacts at a college in the Kansas City area that I could talk to about opportunities. I wonder how I can get the word out.

Enrique Iglesias

After realizing after my last post that typing certain words in my blog trigger google alerts, (oh hey William Jewell College admission staff,) I have decided it will be exciting to title each post something different to bring new crowds to our blog. Enter Enrique.

I just finished a week long vacay and man does it suck to go back to work. I spent the week basking in the cool air in my home, (after 3 weeks without,) getting ready for my roommate to move in and hanging out with friends. Since it was also my birthday week, I set a personal goal to try to make it the whole week without paying for a meal. I am proud to say that other than a dinner on Friday I succeeded.

Marilyn moved in this weekend too, and we are having a great time getting organized and trying to make our animals get along. So far, they don't like each other much, but we are confident with time they will become BFFs.

The house is really coming along too! Marilyn has a cute smaller dinning room table that we put in place of the old one and thanks to my sweet sister Jessica I bought a cute new chair at Peir One. She also got me some awesome magnets... you will have to come to my house to see them... and be over 18 years old.

Pics of the house soon to come! We still have some boxes to unpack!

You don't want to know what they did to me today. It was wrong.

It is written by the lady in the Sonic commercials. She takes pictures from home decor websites and makes comments about what is going on in the picture. Here is an example:

No one could ignore the obvious racism of Elaine’s side table arrangement.

If you are not watching "The Bachlorette" you are wrong. The End.

I am no longer a teenager. I freaked out about this for about 6 months so when it actually happened, I wasn't too upset. It was a good day.

Today is Father's Day. Happy Father's Day dad.

In future news, next year Father's Day will fall on June 19th. This means that my 21st birthday and Father's Day are the same day. I feel like this will only make for a fantastic family get together/party. Just an idea. Maybe Megan and Sara should start planning...

Hair Cut

I cut Tramps hair today! He was so good about it. He just sat in the tub and let me shave him. He got a little uneasy when I got around his butt hole, but hey... who doesn't? Here are some pictures:

French Fries and William Jewell College

Watch the above link. You may be thinking, "Man. That campus in this commercial is the most beautiful campus I have ever seen in my entire life. That must be the best school in the entire world as it is used in a national McDonalds campaign. I wish I would have been cool enough to go to that school."

Let me clarify a few things, now that you have seen the most amazing commercial ever.

2) You are not allowed to park on the bricks in front of Semple (they edited some sorority letters in, but its Semple, where I lived Junior year.) That guy is breaking the rules by doing that. Security will ticket you.
3) You cant get to the top of that building by cute stairs... you have to go to the top floor girls restroom and climb through a window.
4) There are no Latino people at William Jewell College.

We got our new laminate wood floor installed this weekend!!! Here are some pictures:

After the carpet was ripped out--

Tramp was pretty mellow about the whole thing--

Wigglewert was a little too curious and had to spend most of the weekend locked in the office--


Can you spot the cats??

It looks so good and we (mostly me) are so excited!!! Now all we (I) need to do is attach the baseboards, paint the trim, finish the office, re-do both bathrooms, paint the kitchen cabinets, install a new backsplash and counter, buy/make and hang up curtains, decorate the master bedroom and finish the pantry (almost done)! I better stop watching HGTV and start working!

A Half -Century Old

My half-century celebration has begun! We had a wonderful dinner Thursday night with friends - The Fritze's, The Huelskamp's, The Smith's, The Doering's (our adopted family - adults only), and The Meares (Beth works with me) - at Jose Peppers. Nothing embarrassing just a good time.

Today I received some beautiful flowers - a surprise! See picture. Thank you!!! And then dad and I went shopping for items for our new entry table. (Also see picture) We also had a mirror, but when we went to uncover the corner things we found part of it was broken. So we're on a mirror search again. Dad got to experience Hobby Lobby, Gordmans, Pier One, and Bed Bath and Beyond but no luck yet.

Okay, so I haven't figured out how to put the pictures where I want them yet. But at least I'm now posting something :)
