I have been so slack here!

Okay, so I realized I haven't posted since October.  The holidays just took over my life even though we kept it simple but what an awesome season it has been, I won't say was until New Years or the Epiphany maybe.  By then I will be ready to go on a diet and clean my house for spring.  (I am not kidding I love that stuff and only seem capable of doing it when I make New Year's resolutions :) )

So I am typing on my brand spanking new laptop!!!!  I really am.  You wouldn't understand how I am in heaven unless you saw the old mismatched hodge podge school surplus castoff computers I have used for the last 3 years.  My kids kept popping the keys off and my husband would grumble and fix it.  Doodle would eat cheeze its while she surfed for you tube Elmo videos and spill her juice on the keyboard. The screen was frequently smeared with kid prints and other unidentifiable goo.  You get the picture - oh and it had a giant old school monitor that didn't match the harddrive with the broken power button, which we had to remove the face of each and every time we wanted to turn it on or off.  Phew.

But yay I have a brand new, all mine, mine, mine computer!!!!  I am so excited.  I will hopefully be able to blog more in 2011.  We had our very first White Christmas ever, it was also my Dad's first; and he is 78 - sorry Dad.  The kids have 3 weeks off this year so that will require some creative time filling on my part.  I hope to get some pictures on here soon. 
Lastly, Roy gave me a Dance Dance Revolution game for wii that I wanted and I spent most of today trying to learn how to play the darn thing.  I am actually quite decent at dancing for what that's worth but man I feel a bit spastic on that mat.  I am working on getting the feet first and then will add the arms.  I figure it will take a year or two!  Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  1. I completely get the keys off the keyboard. Enjoy writing and dancing away.
