Pretty exciting news. Ash and I put a contract in on a house today. We close on April 28th. We have been pretty busy with that and our new jobs. We both officially start our new jobs on Monday, March 28th. The house is in Ardmore on Walker Ave. We really like the house. Good porch and back patio for entertaining. We hope to have friends over often. We will have 2 swings outside and a basketball goal in the future. The backyard is big enough to toss disc.

Ashley and I are pumped about getting back up to the Dash. This is a huge basketball weekend. I am also pumped about the Pack. They should beat Wisconsin. The Pack is favored by 2 points.

There is a pic of our "should be" house below(assuming things go well with inspection, etc.).

Go Pack!!!


Blash hopes many of you will come to visit. Posted by Hello

Madness Carol

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
With the ballers all dunking,
and everyone yelling,
"Shut up Bill Packer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

There'll be plenty of gambling,
and analysts rambling
the best basketball on the globe.
there'll be great upset stories and
tales of the glories of tournaments
long, long ago.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
There'll be one cinderella
thousands of sad fellas,
wishing that they could cheer.
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

I peed in a cup yesterday

That's right folks. The Lord has hooked the ole' Hill fam up
with a J-O-B at the local Bizzle Bizzle and Tizzle. I begin March 23rd as a Relationship Banker for BB&T. I will work in the Gray Granite building at 5 points in the Dash. This job should provide me with plenty of bloggable situations. We are very excited and stressed as well because we have a lot to do in the next couple of weeks.

By the way: I peed in a cup for a drug test for my new job.

Go Pack

Call me Apollo from Rocky IV

The Mad Russian has knocked me down. Right now I feel just as I imagine Apollo Creed felt after being utterly dominated by Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. I now need to morph into Rocky. Bizzle Bizzle and Tizzle did not want me to help them out as an Institutional Trust Communication Specialist. Basically came down to someone who had been doing the same position for 3 years with another company. Realistically, I figured this would be the case, but was still extremely hopeful.

I am currently imaginging myself to be Rocky, training in subzero temperatures in backwoods Russia preparing to take revenge on behalf of my buddy(whom I used to be) Apollo. If anyone has any training tips(potential job opportunities), let me know.

That's the story. I am going to keep on trying.
