Oral Presentations loosely refered to as OP’s

Tommy has done 2 of these already and I think this one was his best yet.  I’ll have to scan you his brainstorm paper ’cause he brainstorms exactly like I do!


Hi Guys! It’s me again Tommy and today I’m going to be talking about what I’m thankful for.

I am mostly thankful for my family because they love me and comfort me. Church is a big part of my life and I am thankful that we are able to know and love God and his love for us.

Lately I have become more aware of the fact that I need to be more thankful that we have simple things like food and water.  There’s lots of kids (and adults) who don’t.  Did you know that 4,500 children will die today because they don’t have clean water to drink?  And that’s just the kids!

Friends are pretty awesome and I enjoy laughing with them and playing sports with them, pretty much any sport. But I am most thankful for Baseball, Football, Soccer and Basketball. I am best at baseball and basketball and thankful that I have been blessed with being able to play.

I am thankful for my electronics, TV, DS and Playstation when I finally get done with all my home work and this presentation I might be allowed to play them!



Patience is something I am short on.  I used to be good about it…wait, who am I fooling? I used to say “instant gratification isn’t quick enough for me” so I guess I’ve never had a very good supply of it, but I know that I was not as short as I am now.  Anyway, I am asking for patience from you all because I am taking forever building out my “Design Work” portion of my blog.  Mostly because I am very bad about samples, and most of my pre-Toshiba work has been lost or is so out of date that I really don’t care to share it. Hopefully I’ll beef it up soon.  How’s that for non-committal?

The night that started it all.

WOW! What a find.  Today we cleaned out our garage, well most of it.  Seems like after 3 years we still haven’t fully moved in and gotten completely settled. Probably cause I was pregnant and having a newborn.  Anyway, today Ruben came across this photo stuck in some book.  Now I have PROOF that this was a mutual friends birthday party! See the guy to the left of Ruben?  Well that’s Dave and he was my bosses, husbands MBA core group partner, as well as Rubens. It was his birthday and he must have been mighty young ’cause he’s been shaving his head ever since I can remember.  See, Friend of a friend and well I guess it’s proof that we met in a bar, too.  It was Sloppy Joe’s in the Irvine Spectrum and seems like so long ago.

Thanks Sabrina and Chris.  If It weren’t for you two dragging my butt out that night (and home, too) I’d wouldn’t have this amazing family that I do today!
