Dear 2010, SLOW DOWN!

Many apologies for having disappeared in 2010. Things are going swimmingly... just VERY busy.

School started up again last week, and last night I had to teach the class - stupid - let me pay to teach myself the darn class. Anyway.

Aside from that, work's beyond crazy at this point. My butt hits the chair and I'm off again to something new. I don't remember the last time I took a lunch hour. Isn't that weird?

I'm around. Keep writing and reading.


PS... I want this:

And so it starts...

Another year is upon us... and I'm instructed to make it positive, productive, and more enjoyable.

heh. Right.
I'm all over that.

A look back...

It's just about time to check off 2009...

But we've got one more thing to do... the year-end wrap-up. So here we go...

Important Life Events of 2009

bought a house

vacationed at Walt Disney World

oh yeah... started this blog

started shopping at alice.com

complained about work several times

ordered my very own pair of Nikes

attended the hog roast

and of course...
started watching, fell in love with, recorded every episode of Glee

All-in-all... I'll say 2009 wasn't too bad. A lot of great things happened over the last 12 months. Aside from spending my time in class every week and the layoffs at work (every week) - I'll call 2009 a friend, not a foe.

How'd your 2009 shape up?

So now it's time to raise that glass to 2010. (Alright, I'll wait until after I get off work.)

The Toucan Update

Remember the Toucan Tango Kit from a few months ago?

Well, it's officially complete!

If only you could see it tango. When you put your finger in the little hole on the yellow wheel and turn it, the toucan dances up and down, side to side, his feet wiggle, and his mouth opens and closes. Crazy stuff... all made out of paper.

Anyway... so for Christmas, my sister gave me another moving paper sculpture. This time it's a tennis game!

I'm excited to see how it turns out. And lucky for me, I'm the only one in the office for the next two days.

Hmmm... wonder what I'll be doing!!
In other news - well, no other news to report. Until next time!

The Great 2010 Debate

We're in debate over this in March:

Or this in October:

Then again, there's no need to fight.

After all, we could do both. :)

Tis the Season.

Yep... Christmas has arrived!

Remember when we were kids and it seemed like it took FOREVER for Christmas to get here?

What happened to that feeling?

Now it's here lickety split and I'm left with no time off work - just running all over creation like a madwoman in my "spare time".

Ugh. It's not even December 25th and I'm already tired.

Obligated Christmases

Today was our 1st Annual Training Department Christmas Luncheon.

Translation: "Hey girls, wanna go out for lunch?"

The unfortunate thing is... I had to eat with my boss. YAY!

But there was ONE productive part to the 2 hour lunch conversation... ok maybe two good parts:
First, it took 2 hours to do lunch
and that means less actual work time today.
And second, the mystery of the fringe has been revealed!!

pic from here

It all comes back to the Christmas in her childhood when all the girls got cowgirl costumes. The skirt and vest had fringe and that must have been the best gift she ever got.

Unfortunately, she relives it over and over and over again.
