Since New Years Day

Two words - Guitar Hero

I hate the holidays, I really truly do, but on New Years Day, determined to break out of my funk, somehow, I opted for a little retail therapy with the idea that I'd buy MYSELF a game for the Wii. Not something on clearance, not something Bill and Laura would like... no. Something for ME.

And I came home w/ Guitar Hero.

I have been having a BLAST. Oh, I suck at anything above 'beginner' but I don't care.

It's really nice to laugh. :)

Monday Dec 29th

Today's best moment was surely going hermit-crab shopping with Laura. I think that's pretty self explanatory ;)


While checking up on headlines - I am TERRIBLE about popping onto several times a day to ensure that the world hasn't exploded since I last checked, usually by catching up on entertainment, odd, science, and health news; like any of that has squat to do with global annihilation ;) - I ran across a health article that critiqued the best of the diets currently out there. Their #1 pick was The Structure House Weight Loss Plan from The Structure House in North Carolina. (I've tried linking up the book and site, but it just isn't working. Their site is

Anyway, I'm a firm believer that there's more to this weight-loss thing than 'eat less, exercise more', because the problem isn't my tummy, it's my freaking BRAIN. It looks like the Structure House plan addresses the wayward 'gimme nummies and lemme sit around like a slug!!' brain as its primary focus. So I ordered the book. I'll let folks know how it goes. :)

Sunday. Already.

Man, I stink at posting every day. Great intentions, crappy follow through.

It's almost 4:30 in the afternoon, and I think the best moment - beating passionate smooches with Bill - has been online textbook shopping with Laura. Was really fun.

I also talked to Bill about me maybe taking an art class in January at a local gallery. Looks like it's a go, as long as it's not conflicting w/ my quilt guild treasurer job, which means I need to get out a calendar and SEE what days correspond w/ the class dates. Seeing as how there's 4 classes and only 1 quilt guild meeting, it shouldn't be too much of a conflict issue. ;)

Thursday (Christmas)

Today's a tossup between Laura's continual glee over getting a PSP, and me taking a nap this afternoon with Bill.

She's been wanting a hand-held video game system for a LONG time and I happened into a really, REALLY good sale. It was nice to see her so happy.


Late again. Sorry.

Okay, Wednesday's best moment was the three of us having lunch out yesterday while running last-minute holiday errands. It was just nice, ya know?

I think the best moment today was getting line edits from Sam for Stain's Chapter 1. We're trying to get a proposal packet - 3 chapters and synopsis - out this weekend.

Thanks Sammie! :)

Today the best thing was when Bill called and said he was in an accident but he was okay.

He was hit by a guy who ran a red light then fled the scene. There's some damage to the front/passenger side of the car and he sounded a little shaky. The car doesn't matter, though. Bill is all right.
