Random things about me
1- I am crazy about making Christmas cookies. I start my list in October and shop a little each week until I have everything I need. I do anywhere from 10-20 different kinds each yr with just a few that make it every year. I like to try news ones. I usually dont start until the week before Christmas and then bust my butt to get them all done!
2- I dont like show offs or one uppers!
3- I am a pro at Tetris, ANY Tetris really. I can usually finish the game by completing all of the different boards. I havent played in a while because once I start I so can NOT stop!
4- I have a really big heart which always gets walked on by friends and family.
5- I have a shot glass collection, ha! Its packed up in a box. I started collecting in 1998 when I went to Vegas to visit my parents and havent stopped since. (I bet ya nobody knew this!)
6- I live in Old Navy lounge pants and never take them off unless I have to go out for something.
Instead of tagging 6 others because Im pretty sure this has made its way around blogland, Im going to just leave it here for anyone who has not yet done this:)

Its been a while since Ive actually posted. Ive been busy. After being sick we hosted Thanksgiving here so I ended up running myself down. I slept for 2 days afterwards. We had a great Thanksgiving minus my family, why? I dont know - no show and no call! NICE I know!
Bella ended up falling from her bunk bed ladder onto to Domonic and Thanksgiving, what we didnt know was she had a tiny bubble fracture. We ended up taking her to the er Sunday night for Xrays. Monday she went to see a bone Dr who casted it for 3 weeks. She was so excited to have this tiny little cast on for all of her friends to sign. I kept her home Mon & Tues, she went back today.
The past few days I have felt GREAT and have been tweaking my Christmas decorations so Ill soon have pictures to post.
Until then.......
