Livin' with Stevo...


So, for years I have threatened my husband with a book called "Livin' with Stevo". Apparently he decided to take it into his hands to give you a glimpse of my life with him. :) Hopefully, you have all enjoyed the postings and insights he provides. He provides humor in my life everyday, and is truly my best friend. But he is all Guy. Burping, football loving, video gaming, loud music, weightlifting, football obsessed, snoring, sarcastic, "commentary collecting", football crazed, food loving, mountain dew drinking (yuck), Man. How is that for fluff (as he has accused me in his first blog!)? In honor of March, I have a great story to prove my point...


After Steffan was out of town for work all week and a guys night out, we started our Saturday morning. This includes the kids waking up at the first sight of sunshine, getting breakfast started, and trying to get all of the household things complete during our 1 day off from work during the week. After making breakfast, managing the kids, I started cleaning and scrubbing down the house - organizing, dusting, washing, laundry...I hate laundry. Steffan spends every Saturday morning talking to his Grandpa, which I think is great. I would never interrupt this time and I am happy to get to work without him. After his chat, he got on the computer. Again, I was literally scrubbing the house down...


I was trying to be patient (which everyone knows I am not!), but I knew he also had to teach a class on Sunday. So, I was happy to let him prepare. Or so I thought....


About 30 minutes in, he makes a phone call. Scrubbing away, I can hear the conversation begin.


" Hey Man." "Oh, Sorry, did I wake you up." "My kid wake up so early, we have been busy all morning already." "Can I get your email address?" "I am working on setting up the March Madness Office Pool".
Suddenly there was a halt to the scrubbing.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! I am in the same room, SCRUBBING!


All Guy.


I do appreciate Steffan taking over the blog for a few weeks. My life has been overly crazy since my last posting - 3 months ago! For those of you who don't know, I got a job promotion in January. I went from selling IBM software to my Clients, mostly over the phone - to working with Clients here in Denver, meeting them face to face. I do not have to travel into an office anymore, which is nice, but I had no idea how busy I would be. I am hoping things will fall into a rhythm and will slow down a little, but it is not likely in the near future. I have some highly visible accounts, and am working on some great deals. I love it! But it is really busy. :0)


We have Mya's surgery coming up on April 1, so I will be sure to update everyone on how things go.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I love your story about "Stevo" because it's happened oh so many times with me - only Dan's favorite thing to do while I'm doing house work is play World of Warcraft. We got rid of that habit this last week and now he wants an x-box...

I didn't know Mya was going to have surgery - I hope all goes well.

Yea...glad you found us. Sounds like things are a busy as ever with the Busch Family! We miss you guys too. We were just talking about the good old days at the Eastgate. I saw Caisa the other day and she was saying all the people still there. It's all the ones I figured would still be there. Well, I'll check in every so often.

I can relate. Dan was ubber excited that he "had" to take yesterday off to get me to the dr. and back, as once he had me tucked in bed he was able to devote the day to day 1 of March Madness!!! Glad I could accomodate him.

His posts did make me laugh as well as yours. It was great to see you guys. Mya has such a personality and Austin loved playing with her. We will pray for her too.

Oh man...do I echo your sentiments on the whole 'we've been working' deal.

This post is hilarious--we need more Ames.
