Almost time for vacation

Hey You All Everybody...

Good news. We got four brand new tires last night for free. Turns out the tires we bought a year ago were a bad batch. The belts had slipped on them and we had them replaced. It was making our steering wheel do the shaka shaka dance at highway speeds. Now the car drives like a purrrrring kitten. Of course due to this I was unable to attend the gym and get rid of frustration and body fat. Just have to work extra hard on Wednesday.
Now, I have to locate my brand new Cornell Hockey Winter Cap. I once again misplaced it. A little worried I left it at Sears while they worked on the car. I'll call when they open to see if it's there. I'm sure I wore it home last night, I'm just incredibly forgetful these days of late.
The kids are excited to have Santa visit them at Mama and Bob's this year. I'm not sure how much fun lil man will have with toys. I'm pretty sure the wrapping paper and boxes will be a whole world of fun on their own, LOL. Lil lady can't wait to go sledding and play in the snow. Let's just say not a lot of snow fall in this part of the Midwest. Not like we're used to. I mean, when Wal Mart doesn't even sell snow pants, you know you've moved to an alien town.
Well, I bid you all adieu for now. pics are to come later. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.

When the Fit hits the Shan

I just got horrible news about a family member. I think I'll be making a trip back home this weekend. It's horrible but I told them to fight with everything they have.

I guess life is never what you expect it to be huh? Time to pick up my lil girl from school. Hugs from her always make me feel better.

To all I know, take care, luvs and hugs.

Same Stuff different week, I think...


So it's the first official week of December and still no snow here. I'm not saying I want snow per say, but when it gets this cold, some white stuff should at least accompany it. Not much going on here. Watching some movies, cleaning a little house, swimming with friends and making my FAVORITE dish from our Vietnamese cookbook. (fav so far anyway)

Lil man and girl are well. He's a terror and she's too smart for her own good. Boy are we in trouble in a few more years. Other than that, we need to get our X-mas tree out of the box and hook up that bad boy.

Another day...

OMG - large coffee may have been too much this morning, hehehe.

Lil man is FULL of energy today. I'm tired and it isn't even noon yet. We having a grandiose time counting numbers today in Elnglish AND Spanish. He also is quite a fan of the ABC song, therefore he automatically loves Ba Ba Black Sheep and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as well, LMAO.

Well, time for fish sticks and green beans and left over mac n' cheese. Every kids favorite, right? I'll leave some pics with you as you ponder that ;)

and so it begins...

Welcome. I figured I'd start one of these things since I can't seem to keep up with everyone at all these different on-line sites. This way at least, you can keep up with me and the small clan.

My knitting is slowly coming along, I've completed one 6ft Icelandic scarf for hubby and one Tea Cozy Elf Hat for lil man. I'm currently working on a second Elf Hat for a friend's lil man. Hopefully they get easier the second time around, hehe.

Hubby helped me put a nice resume together so the hunt for employment begins. I love being home with lil man and being able to be here when lil girl gets home from school, BUT, time for some adult interaction.

I'm gonna start swimming with a couple of friends a couple times a week. That combined with good 'ol Weight Watchers should turn out very well. It's too cold for me to cycle right now too. Purple fingers can't be a good sign whilest one is riding, can it? LOL.

Well, good day for now, I'll post some pics and I hope you enjoy my adventures in the future.
