A Great Day to be Alive

I am feeling so wonderful today! I am super excited that Justin passed his fire entrance exam last weekend with flying colors! Thank you for all your prayers. We also found out that he will have two more weeks to recover and train before having to do the physical portion of this process. God is SO good. I do not for see any doctor visits in the near future (i.e. next 24 hrs.) I was able to stay home yesterday and work around the house so it is semi-clean. I plan on doing more this weekend. And the pièce de résistance: It's Friday, BABY! Enough said. Here is a little Texas humor for your Friday (thanks to Kristi)--enjoy!

You Must Be a Texan If...
1. You can properly pronounce Corsicana, Palestine, Decatur , Wichita Falls , Sabine, San Antonio, Burnet, Boerne, Nacogdoches, Mexia, Waco , Amarillo , and Waxahachie. (and my addition: Alvord, pronounced 'Alvoid')
2. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.
3. You've ever had to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day.
4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.
5. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.
6. You see people wear bib overalls at funerals.
7. You measure distance in minutes.
8. Little Smokies are something you serve only for special occasions.
9. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.
10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.
11. You know cow-pies are not made of beef
12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
13. You have known someone who has had a belt buckle bigger than your fist.
14. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and bait all in the same store.
15. Your 'place at the lake' has wheels under it.
16. A Mercedes Benz is not a status symbol; a Ford F350 4x4 is.
17. You know everything goes better with Ranch dressing.
18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to multiply.
19. You actually understand this and you are 'fixin' to' send it to your friends.
20. Finally, you are 100% Texan if you have ever heard this conversation: '"You wanna coke?" "Yeah." "What kind?" "Dr. Pepper."
