It's a merry christmas after all!

I was scheduled to work today and would have needed to leave the house at 6 to get to work on time, but I got to be off since there was enough staffing and I was first on the call off list! I was thrilled and so was the family. We opened presents at the ungodly hour of 4:30am. We were up for a few hours while the kiddies checked out all their loot. Everyone seemed happy with their gifts. It's funny though, in years past I've gone way overboard and into debt for christmas, but this year I stuck to a budget and paid cash for the gifts and they were just as excited about everything. E. even said this was the best Christmas ever. S. was very happy with his cell phone and has been walking around with it all day! A. & I did not exchange gifts, we decided we would do something for each other and I didn't miss the gift at all. I still have my gift from last year unopened and many pda's does one person need afterall. I'm going to use it though, 2007 is the year!
I've just been watching movies w/S. We watched Pirates of the Carribeian 2. Very good. Johnny Depp is a riot!

From Couch to 5k

The podcast way. I've had an IPOD for a couple of years, a gift from A. that I hardly ever used. It's a neat toy though and I'm going to try and use it more, so combined w/my never ending quest to get in shape I've downloaded this podcast to help me become a runner...we'll see. I'm starting Jan 9th along with this program I signed up for called Weighdown. It's christian based...which in its self is somewhat strange, but hey I've tried every other way to lose, why not God? So, I'm currently trying to figure out how to download all the episodes. I've emailed the podcast guy and hopefully I'll figure out how to do it.!

Confessions of a Cookie swapper

Who do I think I am? Martha Stewart? I have to be at a cookie swap in 3.5hrs and I have yet to finish the six dozen cookies I'm suppose to bring, plus whip up a tasty appetizer to share. How do I get myself into these things? Did I mention the cookie swap was my brainchild for my online/offline mommy support group? Ah well...I better get back to baking.

I'm going to try this again

I tried to blog before. I like the idea...I'm so lame that I forget the name of my blog and couldn't find it. Oh well, I'm lost in cyberspace somewhere. It seems fitting that I would start this again just as we're heading to a near year. 2006 has been some ride! I'm happy to see it go and looking forward to 2007...bright and shiny and full of possibilities. So, here's to you 2007 can't wait to meet ya!
