- we froze last night, our heater was smoking (!!) so we had to wait for the repair guy to check it out before firing it up.
- he arrived this afternoon at 12:36.
- we were frozen solid.
- but i think all that shivering tightened my abs a bit.
- thinking about my bff and hoping she is still having a grand time in new jersey.
- i miss my gals in sydney. hi dani m!! hi alice!! xoxo
- the nonfat sugar-free cinnamon dolce latte is rocking my socks these days.
- totally inspired (once again!!) by emily. i am going to make this soonish.
- and i'm going to use it.

holy moly, texas weather!!
we went from 85 degrees to
50 in like
half a day,
talk about whiplash!!
i never went to sleep last night.
so this morning
at 5, while in the shower
trying to will myself to stay awake...
i made a mental list
and decided i'd go out
and fight the crowds.
it was a bust.
i crossed a few more
people off my list, so
it wasn't a total bust.
but nothing i purchased
was on sale, so
really, i could have gotten the
and the gifts later on!!
what'd you get today??

the kids are still asleep.
i've had one full cup of joe
and workin on my second cup.
i have scrapped quite a bit the last
and find myself enjoying the fact that
my stash is slowly being reduced.
i swear sometimes i look at it
all and think it's excess
and i fight the urge to throw it all out.
here's a LO i finished in like 5 mins.
i am enjoying simple these days.
and 6 x 12.

this is me
warren varsity lost tonight.
by 5. FIVE.
those girls played like mad
they had a good lead early on
but by the last quarter it was evident
that they wanted to keep me in suspense!!
that's, okay girls, we'll get 'em next time.
p.s. notice something twinkly in the background of that pic?

we have a big backyard.
the d-o-double g
for dani m, who was missing
nothing like a pup with a mouth
full of tennis ball!!
we did our thanksgiving dinner
holy $180 food bill, batman!!
later on we are looking through
our christmas decs,
to make sure everything is working properly.
i think i am one of only a
handful of bloggers who doesn't have
her tree up already.
what is this madness??
this week's challenge:
i don't think journaling is needed.
who isn't rejuvenated by a pedi??

he he. i'm feeling jouvenile this morning.
is it redundant to put lettuce, tomato
jalapenos and pickles on a veggie
i took the burger off and ate the
fresh veggies on the fresh-baked bun.
note to self: fuddruckers doesn't do a good veggie burger.
happy sunday y'alls. i'm off to church.

i even prepared another "deck" for next year.
even if she doesn't do it again, i think i will.
i'm not sure if i'll use the same prompts again,
or go with what i feel. although
when i go with what i feel,
i am often stuck in a rut.
no one wants that.
so please, em, let's play again!!
and have you seen this?
i signed up yest.
i am stoked.
bring on the paint.
& on a totally unrelated topic:
can anyone explain to me
how the dog has more choices
for a snack than we do?
he has peanut butter flavored
and plain milk bones.
but he sure is cute.

today we had nephewaidan.
i am constantly amazed
at how much energy
those little bodies
no word yet from the bank.
i thought it went quite well.
so i am still hopeful!!
next week is thanksgiving.
i can't wait to dig in to that
i love thanksgiving dinner.
well, everything except
for that wobbly cranberry thing.
that kinda freaks me out.
okay that's about it.
enjoy your weekend peeps!!

my sisterbekah at heb.
we were there to pick up sammich stuffs.
ended up cruising the aisles for toys
for our angels (church toy drive).
i was walking ahead of the teenagers
when i hear, "hey, that's a myspace pose!"
of course i had to look.
i really have no close ups, because
well, let's face it.
i'm shy. (lmao)
no really, it is a wreck,
i want to post pretty pics when
i have my shit together, ya know?
our skies today??
at least it isn't scorching hot this morning.
but i can't say it won't get there later!!

in my coffee.
kinda making me warm up
to the fact that thanksgiving
is a mere twelve days away.
and christmas forty-five.
yesterday we had fog in san antonio.
the last time i saw fog like this
i was in england.
funny how that made me "homesick" for the u.k.
happy weekend y'alls!!

i see the side view of a gummy bear.
my lovely aussie friend emily
tagged me this morning.
which is fine by me,
because i need to move yesterday's post
down a bit!!
today's a better day.
1. on my laptop table right now:
a half full coke zero, a new bag of fire jolly ranchers, an empty reese's crunchy bar wrapper, my stack of cards from emily's challenge, and some pics from shutterfly.
2. in my freezer: sugar free fla*vor ice, turkey sausage, toaster strudel, 2 loaves of cinnamon raisin bread, a PB cheesecake, low fat frozen yogurt, ice, tyson chicken, breaded shrimp and some kind of liquor.
3. on my mind: how to get this for dinner: rudy's bbq. the turkey is soooo good, especially smothered in rudy's bbq sause. and no, sause is not spelled incorrectly...that's how rudy spells it. mmm.
4. i am a study in contradictions. i love to organize, but most days you wouldn't guess it by the state of my bedroom!!
5. i am watching nephewaidan today. that kid is a ball of energy.
6. right now i miss: these two.
7. it has taken me an hour to finish this post. (see number 5 for reason)
okay so let's see if i *know* seven people in blogland to tag!!
i know you gals are all pretty busy, but them's the rules.
and i am nothing, if not obedient.

it's from evening
which i thought was a good story to tell,
but that's it.
recently, i started thinking again.
about all of the things that people see/do/think.
the holidays are upon us.
and i am not speaking to my mother
at the moment.
i was thinking how stupid i was to think that
this was all i wanted.
to move "home".
i thought life would be perfect.
the kids could live near their grandparents
and i could visit with family and we'd all sit
around the table at holidays and enjoy each other's
from the outside in, the holidays are a
wonderful, exciting time.
but i think it only
seems that way
if you're looking through the frosted window
into a warm room lit by the christmas tree.
the smiling faces
just moments before were probably
yelling at one another
for being selfish
or just plain
annoying in general.
i'm just sayin.
but i'm a big girl.
i will figure this out
and live with the choices i've made.
so this is the art that happened after all of that thinking was done:
and then this:
because i need to catch up on em's challenges,
and because i need to end this post on a happier note!!

this cup contained anniversary blend.
mm mm good.
and because i needed a pick me up
after wearing CUTE but painful!! whitehouse/blackmarket shoes
all day whilst job hunting
i had one of these:
iced grande non-fat sugar free vanilla latte.
oh, and don't let the tank top fool ya.
it's cold in san antonio today!!

to charge my big camera battery
there was this really cool abandoned building
across the street from the wurstfest.
took this pic:
it's *okay* but it could have been
really great with the big camera.
and this was pretty cool, too.
not sure what it was..a huge decorative weather vane?
maybe just a decoration.
the boyone loved new braunfels.
he said it felt like overseas.
i think he misses living in other countries.
he is the proverbial round peg
being forced into a square hole.
