Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Okay, I'm resolving to give up Chickfil-A waffle potato fries... completely. Those things stick like nothing else. ugh

I have been wanting to tell the world since Tuesday that I won a Dell mini laptop! ...but I decided to give it to my husband as a Christmas/Anniversary/birthday present, so I had to keep my "mouth" shut. heehee...what a great present it is! I'm using it to type out this blog.. it's soooo tiny.

10" screen... keyboard is compact and i keep typing the wrong

Christmas was great, made my first ever tamales, and they are edible! Great flavor but could have better-made masa. I'll work on it to perfect it.

Richard and Madeline (DH & DD) are outside painting her new twin bed in pretty pink and purple colors. I'm still getting over a bad cold, which is affecting what I can eat and what I can taste... don't you dislike it when you can't taste? Would I be a thin twig if I never could taste? I don't think so... its the act of eating and I am never satisfied by taste alone, so I doubt it would be a helpful tool in weight reduction - for long.

whatever the case, I'm going to go help paint for now. Have a very Merry Christmas!!

Leo Forecast by Holiday Mathis

LEO FORECAST 2010: You've suspected for some time that you are capable of much more than your circumstances have allowed you to accomplish. This year you blow past the barriers you made for yourself. Your fighting spirit helps you rise up against the oppressive influences of your past. You attack your projects with a new ferocity and succeed quickly where you once failed.

Money and Career: You'll develop your image as a leader. Your efforts will be characterized by an attitude of assertiveness, resourcefulness and creativity. You will learn to talk to colleagues in a way that honors, encourages and motivates them. Overtime or a side job brings in more money in January and March. Philanthropy opens professional doors. Get involved on a community level.

Love: The fire in your soul will ignite your personal life with passion. March brings a move that energizes many sectors of your life at once. Loving commitments will be made in June. Family additions come in November.

Personal Development: The environment around you enhances your beauty and attractiveness. You are just as industrious about creating a beautiful place to live (your physical body and your home included) as you are in other endeavors.

---Okay, so I think it's time to set goals and why not merge Mathis' ego-pumping forecast into the plan?
