Lite Brite!

Lite Brite for the computer!

Nice day today :)

This morning, my daughter and I went with my mom-in-law to Chattanooga. Once there, we picked up my friend and the four of us went shopping at Big! Lots (an extra-large version of Big Lots) and P&S School Supply, followed by lunch at Wendy’s and more shopping at America’s Thrift Store. We then took my friend home, visited for a few minutes, then headed home. Partway home, we stopped by Cracker Barrel for a snack and some more shopping.

Shortly after arriving home, our friends came over and spent the evening here. It was a very nice day!

It’s cold outside!

We went walking this morning around 6:30am and it was 20ยบ outside! Brrrrrrrrrr! I need to find scarves for tomorrow.

And another…

You are OS X. You tend to be fashionable and clever despite being a bit transparent.  Now that you've reached some stability you're expecting greater popularity.
Which OS are You?

Yet another silly quiz…

You are Luisa Estrada.  You are the wife of the former President of the Philippines. You wish me to go to Amsterdam to help you collect $30 million which you siphoned off.  You enjoy reading, and stealing money from the poor.
Which Nigerian spammer are You?

Are you a nerd?

Started a new schedule today

Hopefully this will work long-term and we will be able to stay organized and get healthy. That’s the goal, anyway!

Yesterday I got a toy-bin shelf for the boys’ room; I hope to be able to implement it today, and that should help a lot there.

Sad news about my foster brother…

He called me yesterday from jail. He has been living on the streets for a couple weeks and yesterday the police stopped him and searched him and found a “roach” in his pocket and his pocket knife, so they took him in. His court date is Feb 8.

I dreamed this morning

that I went to my grandmother’s funeral (which was a HUGE event – in my dream) and a bunch of the families I only know online so far were there. The only one I can remember for sure *now* was LA and her 8 children… that was pretty neat.
All my aunts & uncles were there (of course) and my mom.
I hated to wake up.

What kind of junk food are you?


Like chocolate cake, you are friendly, dependable and make a great friend. You’re the perfect person to turn to in times of need!

Happy New Year!

…a little late.
