    Mike, Andy, Benjamin and Bert went to Twins Fest this past weekend. Benjamin was able to meet lots of past and present Twins players and even had his picture taken with "TC" the mascot. Andy bought Ben a Twins kids book and had the famous Rod Carew sign a page in it. No doubt this will be a treasured item as Ben gets older!

    I have some good news to share! I was offered a new job at Mayo. It is a part-time job as an Education Specialist in Women's Health. I will be working 2.5 days a week so I will be able to spend more time with Benjamin. I am not sure when the actual start date will be, but it will most likely be around March 1st. We are traveling to Florida to visit Benjamin's Great Grandma on February 22nd. It will be a wonderful vacation before I start on a new adventure! Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support as I waited to hear something about the job!!

    Leaving Las Vegas

    Wednesday, January 18, 2006

    It is Wednesday in my week of single mom-dom. Things have gone smoothly thus far and I don't think that Benjamin has even suffered toooo much! We both miss Daddy very much and can't wait for him to come home on Saturday! Mike seems to be having a good, but very busy time in Las Vegas where he is working at IBM's Software University.

    I had class last night, so Grandma Schmitt got to spend lots of time with Benjamin! I think they both had fun!! Grandma Andrews, Aunt Mary, and Erin are coming on Friday because I have class all day on Saturday. We can't wait! Benjamin is going to need some time with some men soon, he's getting too much estrogen!! Haha.

    Happy New Year everyone!

    2006 is here and I can't believe it. 2005 was an interesting year. I know it was very good for some of you and some of you are really looking forward to leaving it behind. In any event, I hope 2006 brings wonderful things to all!

    Grandma and Grandpa Andrews have come and gone and they left behind a huge pile of gifts for Benjamin!! His toy collection quadrupled in one day, haha. He is having so much fun playing with everything (and I must admit, so are we!). It was hard for all three of us to go back to the daily grind, but so far we have made it through the majority of the first week back unscathed. We are very much looking forward to the weekend though! Benjamin has his sixth month shots on Friday, which were delayed because he had a fever last week. I'm sure he is really looking forward to them! Haha. We finally figured out that we need to schedule his appointments late in the day so that he has less time to be cranky after shots. We are learning as we go, I guess.

    Last month Benjamin had his picture taken by a photographer at daycare. We didn't expect much from the pictures, but they actually turned out quite good. We didn't buy any, but I scanned them at a very high quality so we could print them ourselves...sssshhh, don't tell! Here's a taste...
