Week in Review

I’ve had a great week….and pretty interesting one too.  I decided it’d be a great time to get caught up and do some blogging!!

The race was rain delayed on Sunday and was supposed to happen on Monday at noon.  However, it was later announced that they were going to go for a 7pm race time.  I’ve gotta say this was a Daytona 500 that will go down in history!!  It was the first time in 58 years that the race had even been rain delayed.  Then the action during the race was crazy and bizarre!! 

Jimmie Johnson was wrecked on lap 2.  Jeff Gordon lost an engine.  There were some pretty big wrecks.  Oh, and let’s not forget the red flag that stopped all the cars on the backstretch!!  Juan Pablo Montoya was coming off pit road and hit one of the jet dryers on the track.  It caused a huge fire.  Once they finally got it put out, they had to repair the track.  I think it was about a 2 hour stop.  The funniest part of the whole thing was that Brad Keselowski was on Twitter and taking photos during the red flag!!

The very best part of the race is that Dale Jr finished in 2nd place!!  He had an awesome win and I’m so happy.  It was exciting to see.  Matt Kenseth won the race, which is just fine for that WI boy.  It’s going to be Jr’s year though!!

In other news, I lost 3 lbs. this week!!  I’m feeling so awesome and I’m really happy.  I didn’t realize I felt “bad” until I felt so good!!  Yesterday, I started having serious digestion issues.  Then tonight at dinner, I just couldn’t eat at all.  Every bite I took, it got stuck in my throat.  Suddenly I had to RUN and it all came up.  I puked 3 times!!  It’s the first time since I’ve had the surgery that it happened.  My thought is that I have a stomach virus because my whole stomach is upset.  Not something I want to do again though and I must say, it wore me out and I’m so ready for bed now!!

Religion class is going great and I’m hoping to get some of our activities posted soon.  Just so much to keep up with right now.  If you’re looking for things for Lent though, please utilize my “search” feature in the column on the right.  I’ve shared many things over my blogging time and it’s all still available for you to use.  I want the kids to benefit from the things that I’ve used or found over the years!!

I guess that’s all for now.  More to come soon.  Have a great weekend!!

Rain Delay Becomes Race Cancelled

For most of the winter, we look forward to the beginning of race season.  We’re true NASCAR fans!!  Winter isn’t totally miserable because we do have the Green Bay Packers and they’re the ultimate!!  However, racing is a pure adrenaline rush and there’s so much hype leading up to opening day.

Now granted, we have had the Bud Shootout and the Gatorade Duals, but it’s still not the main event.  It’s not opening day of racing season!! 

For the first time in history, the Daytona 500 was cancelled postponed!!  It started as a rain delay and looked like the skies might clear.  As the hours went on, it didn’t look so good.  The dryers even made it out on the track when the skies opened up again.  Had it stayed clear, we could have had a night race because Daytona is equipped, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

With all the wild rides and excitement of the events leading up to today, the truck race and the Nationwide race, I can’t help but feel today was cancelled postponed for a reason.  Jeff Gordon took a wild ride at the Shootout.  There’s been crazy wrecks all weekend in the other racing events.  Today just had to be a way of God looking out for these race car drivers.  I know many will disagree with me, but I believe everything happens for a reason.  It just wasn’t meant to be today.

We should have a pretty fun and exciting Monday though!!  (Alright, so it’s not cancelled….it’s postponed.)  Let’s go racing boys….and let’s WIN Jr!!
