Decorating for the Holidays...

It's a little late but I thought I would share the Christmas decorations at my mom's house. We have been working on these for about 3 years now and each year adding a little more. Going to have to change some stuff out next year because we are running out of room. Enjoy.  Here is 100 ft of fence filled with Christmas fun.

NaNoWriMo 2009

Ok so Here I am again with hopes of participating and completing NaNoWriMo this year.  Had a bit of a rough start because I did not manage a single word on the first day but the good news is that I am now up to 3748 words so I am catching up.  Was suppose to be at 5000 today but it is ok.  I am catching up by 100-200 words a day for the first day and I have hit my quota for the last two days. 

There is still potential for a win at this point and I have my fingers crossed.  I have plenty of story just need to manage the time.  Wish me luck.

Remember the 80's...

I remember when ...


A little house with three bedrooms and one car on the street
A mower that you had to push to make the grass look neat.

Long Bad Day...

May I never complain about life not being exciting enough again.  Spent my morning exercising (like a good girl) while the parentals went over to get some chest and stomach x-rays done for my stepdad because he had been feeling a little odd.  It didn't seem like that big of deal.  Well not until my mom calls me several hours later and tells me that they are taking him to the hospital by ambulance because he has an aneurysm near his aorta and if his blood pressure rises too much it could burst.  The 45 minutes it took me to get to the hospital were the scariest of my life.  Luckily by the time I got there he was stable and they were discussing when to do surgery.

Now we are playing the waiting game.  Surgery is tentatively scheduled for Monday... I am taking that as a good sign ... unless something changes.  But they have him in cardiac ICU which sucks a bit because their visiting hours are so strict.  Only for a half hour every 3 hours or so which is really bad when you have to drive an hour to an hour and a half round trip to get there and back. 

Will be finding out more about his condition in the morning.  It is going to be a long, long weekend.
