Addicted to Mahjongg

Really. I am.

Playing this game relaxes me and energizes me all at the same time. It feeds my need for competition. And its a healthy form of competition because I'm competing with myself, always trying to get a higher score, finish a hard level, clear the board faster.

I've spent hours playing this game. Hours that I probably should have spent doing laundry, or cleaning out the junk drawer. But where is the fun in that?

Life is to be enjoyed. As long as we have clean clothes to wear and I can find a stamp or extra battery when I need it, then all is good... and I'll start another game.

Everybody has their own Magnet Friend

Lessons in Love and Friendship...... by Alaina Blackwell, age 5.

"Essense and I are like magnets. We are stuck together and we can't ever get away from us. Just like you and Daddy (Daddy Walt) are stuck together, Essense and I are stuck together and can never leave each other. Everyone has their own Magnet Friend."

This is Hoover. Snuggling up in my lap while I work on the computer. I just love him. He is sweet and fun.

Snow Day!

We got dumped on last night by the beautiful white stuff. School was cancelled, but unfortunately I still have to go to work. Hopefully I can at least get some good pictures out of this. And can't wait to see the puppy out in this stuff.

Insomnia sucks!

It is 6am... and I've slept for just an hour and a half. Really? I mean, really?

And did you know that there is no website that has advice for fun things to do when you have insomnia?

Maybe that is what I need to do when I have insomnia.... build a website, and they will come. :)

Welcoming 2011

I just spent a few moments reading over my blog since I started it. Long time, lots of posts and pictures, and lots of 'updates.' I saw a trend. Long periods of time with no blog entries, and then an update on my life and an apology for not blogging, and a promise to do better. Ha.

So, now that I'm blogging today - I'm going to break that cycle! No promises for frequent blog entries. No big long update on what I've done in the last year. If you read this, then you know me well and you already know anyways!

I'm just going to jump right in and blog whenever I feel like it, about whatever I feel like it. So there! :)

Happy 2011 folks.
