As i am sure that everyone has noticed i have been a bit busy.

work at Military really picked up over the Holiday Season. to the point that i do not think that i had the chance to even check my e-mail.

have also been working hard on some wed-sites that i am building. the templates should be up on barnyard soon for download. which is kind of cool. i am rather proud of learning how to read and write html and css. i am able to help alot of people out now with site building. in fact as soon as i have the one that i am working on done there are 3 right behind it. so that is really keeping me out of trouble.

oh and then i am working on my weight. trying to loose more. and get my body moving more. i really want to work on getting fit. it is not good living a sedentary life. it makes a persons butt big. so, i have a plan. yep i sure do. now, i just need to follow through with the said plan.

each morning i am going to do some kind of exercise before work and then again after work before dinner. all that good tasting holiday bad for you food has been driven out of the house. we (meaning Ben and i) are going back to veggies. and no meat. good thing i have a veggie cook book. so, it looks like there is a shopping trip got me in the future to pick up beans and other good veggie low fat low sugar stuff.... the key word there is sugar. i can not believe that i am going to give up sugar.. well i should not say give up but atleast reallllllllllllly cut back sugar is for sp. times and when i am feeling low and need a lifter-upper. hehe vanilla milkshakes yummmmmm. i have not had that i have had one in ages it is just that a girl can not give up everything yah know.

oh well i better give an update about Christmas dinner... oh it was to die for. i only ranted a little to get people out of my kitchen, there just was not enought room for me to work in there and other people in the kitchen as well. i know that my kitchen is a nice size up please people i need to move. so, i kicked everyone out. dinner was served right on time. andrew was a little late but that was okay. so what was the menu?

  • crown pork
  • sweet potatoe rounds
  • candied sweets
  • green bean casserole
  • potatoe puff
  • 2 different kinds of rolls
  • corn pudding
  • cold slaw
  • cheese cake ap.
  • seitan veggie med.
  • apple raisain stuffing
  • cookies
  • 3 different kinds of dip
  • party punch
  • egg nog

i know that i am missing something. but i think that was the gist of what was there.

as for the presents , i think that everyone was happy with santa this year. i know that i am. santa was very kind and loving. of course i have not gotten everything away yet and the decorations are still up. i kind of took a little time off from cleaning. but i have started up again. the laundry is being done and the kitchen has been reclaimed. i just need to reclaim the living room.

one i also better let everyone know about my car. it's in the shop again. i thought that my car was on fire because well smoke started coming into my vents and out from under the hood. i thought that may not be a good thing. the really bad thing was i was on my way to the DMV to renew my regestration. a wonderful time for my car to burn up. so i got to sit on the side of the raod waiting for a tow truck to come and get me and my car. and guess what was wrong? the headgasket. so lets see what has been replaced on this car. radiator, tran, battery, whole wheel things not just the brakes, altinator. okay so basicly i have a new car with an old body... good news is i get to pick the dying heep up from the garage tonight. oh i am so over joyed. (not) i think that i am just prolonging the death of the poor thing. it has had a hard life and now it is crying. the poor thing.

did i mention how much i hate the DMV?

i really hate that place, the caused me so much trouble that i wanted to cry. i litarly spent the whole day there standing in one line to be told that i need to go and stand in another line. then to be told that i was in the wrong line . to get a guy to question if i was even married or did i forge the documents... because he did not understand the concept of photo copy. Notorized by the cort of orphans. and he did not understand that when a photo copy is done it has the same information that the original has. hence if the original has return to the cort-house. that the copy would have the samething.... nice huh. Then to have them charge me when the website says that it is free. yeah right. and then to have them not ask me how i want my name and just choose one for me. well that just thrilled me. at that point i just gave up and said the hell with it. i am tired of all this bull plop. i tell you it was DMV hell. but i have a new lisence that they did not renew with a new pick that shows how pissed i was. and a new title for my car because they would not allow me to renew the registration without changing the name on the title.

okay i think that is enough for now.

i have 10 mins and then i need to start working.
