December's 1st Post !

Yes, that is right it is December 13th (Happy Birthday Jackie & Happy 1/2 Birthday Syd) and this is my first post of the month.

Let just say wet snow is great for making snowmen but not so good for wireless antennas to get a signal. We had 17" of snow fall in the last 2 weeks, the kids had no school for 2 days & the gym closed down, lets just say it was a long 2 days. Notice the the chair on the deck, the snow is over the seat!

I had some pc problems, I had to "upgrade" to vista, I'm still getting things straightened out. There is a lot that is different and I will have to get used to it all. There is list of items I still need to reload and find again. I guess the worst that happen was I lost all my appointments on my PDA. I'm sure Hubby wants me to let you know that that was user error and not the computers fault, but I will deny it to the end. I have a few pictures I can't locate and a file I can't open but all in all I think things are looking up.

I did finally get all my Christmas cards sent. I put them in the mail Saturday. I'm never this late, but I had to wait until I get my hair cut (Thanks Stacy) before I could sit for a picture and then I had the computer problems. Anyways it got done:)

Sorry if I ruined the surprise for anyone.

I need send a great big thank you to my brother and his family, they took the picture and many others. It is very hard to get all 6 of us to smile and look at the camera at the same time, as you see by all the blooper shots. I just had to add them, they tell the real story.
Now if I could only finish my Christmas shopping. I have a shopping trip planned with mom tomorrow, we will see how much we can accomplish.

I had a weigh in last Sunday and lost 1 lb. It was challenge week and I didn't do half bad, I came in second place and made the paper. Here is part of article.

This week as challenge was race a throug
h multiple obstacles ranging from a slap shot with a hockey stick, jumping rope, doing sit ups, to shooting a basket and more. The contestants were timed and the winner was Jennifer Nowacki. She had an outrageous time of one minute and forty-nine seconds. Great job, Jennifer! We are very proud of you.

In a close second place was Melinda Greer, with a time of one minute and fifty-eight seconds. Great effort, Melinda!"

I will weigh in again today, (fingers crossed) I hope there is drop but I think I will stay the same. The last 10 lbs are going to hard to get rid of.
