Goodbye Digital Media Class

No more digital media class.

Yesterday was the last day and tonight we're having an end of the summer banquet. I guess we'll eat and they'll pass out awards to the students. I know for sure they'll be screening the video I stayed up editing until 4 am this morning. As a matter of fact, I'm sitting here while it's burning to disc. I hope Trey can come with me. He just called and told me how he's excited because he talked to a guy who restores 69' Chevy's, the same make and model as his truck. Let me fill you in, if you don't know... Trey bought a truck our first year of marriage. He's never driven the thing, however it is in a million pieces in our garage if you'd like to see it. I love Trey to death and want his dream truck to drive one day. One day it will.

Plumbers and Toilets

Last night started like any other, then all of a sudden our front bathroom was ankle high in sewage water. It was a horrible sight and disgusting smell. Trey was yelling at me, "Dominique bring me towels, bring me towels!" So, now I have to go out today and buy new towels. No way am I using gross sewage smelly towels to clean my body. Yuck! The plumber came this morning at the crack of dawn and said everything was a-okay. Oh, the joys of home owning.

The Best Coffee EVER!!!

Before I begin, I want to say I've discovered my favorite coffee all over again! I love H-E-B coffee called Taste of Abilene, but I never realized they sold it seperate from there coffee bar...You know where you can buy it grounded. Well, I found it and freaked out!

Now switching gears, I guess I've been dancing around work I've been needing to do, but I definelty had fun this weekend. The highlight: rockin' on the bass Sunday during church and of course the coffee! The Low: staying up late and waking up earlier.

Trey and I rented Running Scared. The movie claims it makes Kill Bill look like Sesame Street. Based on that claim alone, I had to see what all the fuss was about. Indeed, it was pretty gory, but I have to say it was much, much better than Kill Bill.

I just posted a new video on my website

I just posted my latest video online. I worked on it for about 3 weeks and it was screened at the Abilene Country Club a few weeks ago. It was a lot of hard work, but very rewarding.

Summer Fun

Yesterday we spent time with the pups in the backyard tossing the football around. As you can see our Doberman is almost as tall as Trey.

Well, I can't believe another week has flown by. My mom is out of town so this weekend Natasha, my younger sister is staying with us. I have tons of video projects I have to work on, but that's the same song I've been singing all summer. I'll try to pull myself away from the computer that chains me, if I can I plan on seeing at least one good movie and walking my beagle. Trey and I will be going to church this Sunday. I think we found a church we both enjoy. The church is out in Buffalo Gap called First Baptist of BG. Wednesday we practiced with the praise and worship band. Trey played guitar and I rocked out on the bass. This Sunday the praise and worship leader wants us to play with them so that's pretty exciting. I can't explain how wonderful it feels to play in a band again!

T-Shirt Reads: I Don't Need an Encyclopedia Because My Wife Knows It All

That was the T-shirt we gave our Dad for Father's Day, along with another one that read: For Sale: Make Offer. We spent our weekend watching movies and were caught in a rain storm. Saturday Trey and I made our way to the Drive-in to watch the Fast and the Furious followed by The Break-up. It looked like it was going to rain and sure enough it began to storm on us. It rained for a good 30 minutes and hailed for 10. Luckily we didn't have any damage to the car.

By the way, The Fast and the Furious was suprisingly decent and the Break-up wasn't bad either. Oh, I failed to mention I received my diploma in the mail Friday. Yeah, I piece of paper that says thanks for the money and here you can have a paper. Real nice!

Where'd the Power Go?

Last night we went over to our friends house and had a wonderful steak dinner and then later we went to see my favorite: Garfield. I don't know if the couple we were with wanted to see it, but they were good sports about it...Afterwards, when we exited the theatre it was beginning to storm, so Trey and I made our way home for the night. When we got home I started to brush my teeth and Trey was watching TV when the electricity went out. I was scared, but Trey and I found each other in the dark with the guide of our cell phone lights. 15 minutes later, we were still in the dark.

Our neighbor called and said, your small dog, Daphne is in my backyard. When I went to get Daphne, Stacey our neighbor, said she put her back over our fence. I called Daphne's name, but I had no luck. I ran to our fence near the ally and heard Daphne crying. She was soggy and muddy. What a night!

Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties

I'm not seven years old, but I'm super excited about the new Garfield movie. It comes out today and I'm gonna try to see it this weekend. Although I have to say I'm disappointed it's not showing at the drive-in. Tonight Trey and I are hanging out with a married couple from one of the churches we visited a few months ago. Trey said they were thinking we could watch a movie tonight. I'm pretty sure they want to watch the new Jack Black movie, Nacho Libre. OH BOY! That movie is either gonna be really dumb or really brilliant. Other than that I have to sort papers for class, work out, work, edit, and work on the yard.

Vet Visit

Poor Brusier is a sick puppy...we'll he's not ill, but he's having skin problems. He's been itching his butt bare. Yesterday we took him to the vet and they treated him. I hope he gets better. Last time I posted his weight he weighed around 75 pounds, he now weighs 93.

Entertaining An Idea

Last week Trey came home and asked, "What do you think about moving to Austin?" initially I said no way, I don't want to leave my house and family. Ever since he asked me I've been seriously considering the idea. I just hope Austin isn't a smaller version of LA because I swear if I have to pay 6 dollars a day to park my car I will freak out!

1,000 Miles Later

Can you believe I've put 1,000 miles on my little scooter? I think it's time for a tune-up. With teaching a class this summer and working on numerous video projects I haven't had a chance to ride it as much as I would like. I have to haul equipment and it's really hard to attach a light kit to my back.

P.S. I just posted this picture because I thought it was too cute.

Back to Normalcy...Sort of...

Last night my video was screened at the Abilene Country Club. I love making videos and it's so rewarding, but it's so creatively draining. Now I will move on to the next project on my list: Upward Bound Banquet Video....It never stops does it? At least I'm busy and not bored. Never a dull moment.

Sunday Morning

My younger sister had her first communion today so Trey and I went to church to see her. We spent the rest of the afternoon with my family. Trey and I ventured to take my niece with us to Target. That was interesting because usually its just us two, but it was fun.
