Absentee

I know I haven't been around again. But with the mad dash to get everything finished before the monsters are out of school has been very time consuming. And we still aren't done yet. One scarf is almost done. With that one done then if need be she will be able to see her sisters being done... and I will just have to tell her that if I get time I will make her one... You all know how that goes!

I have been doing really well with exercising everyday. I have only missed 2 days all month but in my defense I worked bingo and probably did more there then I would have on the treadmill anyways.... LOL! I'm still not seeing any improvement. But will keep at it at least until the end of January. I figure that if in 2 months I still don't see any change in my weight then I need to contact a doctor to see what else could be wrong.... I am keeping fingers crossed that I will see something as I HATE doctors!!!!

With the exercising I have been watching more television then ever. I have started watching Martha Stewart. I know, I know but she really does have on some really kewl things. The other day she had on an attachment for the Kitchen Aid Mixer it was the Pasta Press! I want one..... It shapes the dough into pasta shapes. You make the dough separate and then add it to the hopper. So if you wanted you could make 10 pounds easily in a day. But with the cost being over $200 I will have to wait until I hit the lottery! It will be on my wishlist for just in case someone has a butt load of money they want to spend on me.... Hint, Hint, Honey! LOL!

2 more Bingo's and then I'm done until February. And I also got some other really good news. The fish fry's are being cancled until the middle of February. That way they coicide with Lent. So we will only have 6 or 7 to do for next year! That made me very happy. So if the weather is crappy in January like it should be, I will be snuggly warm here at home. Not driving from obligation to obligation. YEAH!

I have an etsy shop and I sent for the priority boxes from the post office. I am hoping to have the shop up and running just after the holidays. I know I probably should have set it up for before the holidays. Since I have never done anything like this before I thought it was best to wait till I had time to deal with it properly. I am going to put the hats I've knitted and the afghan's that I have crocheted on there. I have a couple of other things as well, I sewed up a few bags and small towels that I knitted. 2010 is going to be another learning year for me. Which is wonderful. I am all about learning new things. It will also be a year of getting out of debt. We made some strides this year but with the added expenses of being sued and then the bike braking and all of the band stuff, we didn't do as well as we thought we were going to. To recap though we did pay off one of our loans and we did put a new roof on the house. All in all it wasn't a bad year!

I got another $5 certificate to amazon from epoll (survey site). While I added it to my account I was looking around at the books in my wishlist. I noticed that they offered reccomendations. Of course I went looking to see if any of it interested me. The are really good at knowing what I like. I found a ton of books on making soaps, shampoo and cleaning products. All of them went on the wishlist until I earn more certs... LOL!

Time to go watch Martha and exercise!

Gotta Walk,

Ooh, I want that pasta press, too. But, like you, I'll have to wait til I win the lottery or something. Ah well, if it's meant to be it will be.

Good for you with the exercising! You're inspiring!
