Its wet outside!

Its raining and cold today! Its my favortie kind of weather!

what to do?

So I twisted my ankle sunday night while putting laundry away and yes it is the same foot that I messed up in july. I have kept it wrapped and have been using a brace that my grandma had and it still hurts. I am trying to decide if I should go to the doctor and pay money that we don't have right now or hold out until my insurance kicks sometime in late january. I am trying to keep it warm because it seems like when it gets to cold it hurts even more. Right now I have a space heater pointed at it so that it does not get cold but it is already acheing. At least I have a 3 day weekend to stay off of it!

i know what santa's bringing me...

So santa (aka my dad) called me to see if I would like a new kitchen sink and faucet for christmas today. I was thinking are you kidding me, of course I want those. For those of you who don't know about my kitchen I currently have a yellow, yes 70's yellow, sink and our faucet is cracked and is about ready to fall off. - myself have just been to cheap to but a new faucet. So I am getting a new stainless steel sink and faucet from santa! I know that's a silly present to be excited about but we really need it and I don't have to purchase it myself!

I did try to go to the mall today to try and finish my christmas shopping but there was no where to park! I am going to have to attempt it again tomorrow or maybe monday night.I only have one gift left to get and of course I can only get it at the mall. I also need to find time this week to wrap presents and to bake. I had wanted to get our picture taken with the dog for christmas presents but I lost track of time and did not get that done. I am still trying to get used to working again so I feel like I never have any free time. So I am making cookies for christmas gifts again this year.

Jeremy and I finally saw the new moon movie (the 2nd movie in the twilight series) it was ok. The 2nd book is my least favorite so the movie kind of bored me.

Well its past my bedtime! I got to get up early tomorrow and get lots of stuff done.

Yep it has to happen...

I must purchase a new laptop. Our desk computer is old and runs terrible and really just needs to be dismantled and thrown away and I can no longer download my camera to our laptop. I need to purchase a laptop for myself to use just for downloading my camera and doing the other projects that I had once been doing on the computer. So it looks like after Christmas I will putting away what we can for a new laptop for me.

We did get our tree last night fom Green Thumb. We will go pick it up tonight since we went ahead and had it flocked. We even put up our Christmas lights last night. Now i need to find out stockings and then i will be done decorating for this year.

december 7th

Yesterday was our 7 year anniversary. We both worked all day and I came home feeling yucky so we decided to stay home. Jeremy went and picked up dinner from dominicks, which was yummy. I watched a christmas story, took some nyquil and was out before 9:30. We will do something another day when I feel better.

Picture of the view on the way to work

Not sure why this post is all messed up. I did it from my phone. Anyway just a picture of the snow on the hills.

Yep I went to Disneyland again today. We had lots of fun and got theresa to go on indiana jones so she has now offically been on all the big rides at Disneyland, now we need to work on the rides at California Adenture! I will probably go again next Saturday for travis's birthday and then not again until next year. I need to download my camera but the computer isn't working right. I do believe its time for a new one. I guess we are going to save some money and buy a new laptop for me so I can put all my digital pictures on it. Anyone want to donate to my new computer? Ok time for me to go to bed since tomorrow is monday!

To flock or not to flock...

That is the question of the day. I want to go get our Christmas tree and Jeremy wants to get a flocked one this year. We did that 2 years ago and the nice thing was all the needles didn't fall off. One year we even flocked it ourselves with a can of spray snow
(We called it our flocked up tree!). I wonder where the pictures are from that tree. I remember the one time when I was akid that we got a flocked tree. I think is was 9hristmas of 1981. I got a new brother that year (yep I got a brother) and for some reason I wanted a "white" christmas tree. I am not sure which parent agreed to it but I remember picking out the tree and asking for it to be white and then waiting a day or 2 before the tree could come home. I don't think we ever had another white tree after that.
Now I need to figure out if I want heavy flocking or light flocking. That is my delima for today!
