My name is Emily and I'm an addict...

This is what I'm going to have to say at a Sudokuaholics meeting if I can't quit playing this game. My friend Matt taught me this game a couple of years ago on our way to Chicago and I fell in love with it. I carried a Sudoku book and pencil in my bag at all times. I would go for a long time playing this game when I had any free time, then get tired of it and put it down for a while. About 2 weeks ago I discovered a Sudoku App for my phone and I am drawn in again. I can't stop playing. I want to, but I keep wanting to try and beat my fastest win time!

This morning after Dan and I got home from the gym at approximately 6:30 I sat at my computer to answer some emails and my computer started running slow so I started playing Sudoku. My fastest time was 4:41 and I HAD to beat my time before I could start my day. Dan kept walking in saying, "are you seriously still playing sudoku," 30 minutes later, I had beat my time winning a game at 3 minutes and 30 seconds!! I was so excited I threw my arms in the air! I still had on my heart rate monitor from my workout and I saw that my heart rate was at 135...from playing a game. That is when I realized I might have a problem. I love it though!

I have moved to the next level hoping that I will get frustrated and quit. They say that doing games like this is good for your brain right???

That's all for now. Only two full days left until the weekend!

I finally gave in...

Today, September 7, 2009 I gave in...I started a blog. I have been against this for a long time because I felt that since we don't have kids yet our blog wouldn't be exciting. I have many friends with blogs that I love to read so I thought maybe I would enjoy writing one. It is a great way to keep in touch with family and friends. So here I am on this Monday writing my very first post. I hope you enjoy reading and keeping up with what is going on in our lives.

Dan and I have been married for a little over two years. Everyone has said that as you get older time goes by really fast and now I know what that means. The past two years has FLOWN by and have been the most fun I have ever had.

I always tell Dan and being married is great because you have a permanent date. I always have someone to watch a movie with or eat dinner with. Best of all, the most dreaded chores (like going to the grocery store) are fun when Dan and I are together. I know, I know, I am super cheesy and I will try to not be too mushy in my posts, but I truly feel blessed to have such a great man in my life.

Well that is all I have for now but I look forward to posting more.
