Whatchya Been Doin'?

Oh my.
Things have been relaxed and busy here

There have been overnight guests and sledding.

Parties and naps.

Lots of music and silence. It's been just perfect.

I went sledding with the Noodle and her pal, L.

More than once.

After the second time?
I've decided that I'm too freakin' old to go sledding. It's just not fun anymore to hurt my big old padded bottom on an icy mogul.

My friend Sandi got me an iPod shuffle.

Oh. My. Gosh.

I'm addicted to downloading music. I'm going to have to put a big ol' limit on the music that I purchase, people. I went to iTunes and started out with 10 songs. Some Hannah Montana for the Noodle and some Indigo Girls and Paul McCartney & Wings for me. I love the fact that those fabulous people at iTunes take an artist and list all of their essential tunes so you can easily find your favorite songs. Sooooooo dangerous! I found so many songs that I've totally forgotten about!
Like the ones from the Indigo Girls and Paul McCartney and Wings. Because when is the last time you thought about THEM?

Anyway, now I've been loading my little-bit of a cd collection into my computer and making different play lists.

I've decided I need to upgrade my iPod shuffle to an iPod Touch. Then I can listen to music while I'm surfing the net "on the go". You know - because I'm nothing if not "on the go".

And then, why don't I just get an iPhone? I mean, it's the same price as the iPod Touch, but there's a phone, too.

And remember how my cell phone is broken and I need a new phone anyway? Yeah! Let's get an iPhone, okay?


Oh.....and never mind how much I hate talking on the phone and how I dread even checking my home voice mail messages and the fact that I never did set up voice messaging on my cell for the same reason I never check my home voice mail. Because I hate phones.

I always make so much sense.

Anyway. My friend, Kirst, has all of her music (and she has a TON of music) downloaded to her TV (somehow) so she can play her music throughout the speaker system in her home by using her TV!!! Her hubby, Frank, is a genius and has their house totally HOOKED UP, people!

Here's what else I've been doing:

Reading this book.

My pal, Kirst, has been telling me to read this so we can discuss it. As usual, I'm the last person on Earth to read it.

And I'm so sorry.

Because it was the best book I've read in a long time.

And it was very comforting to me - as person who struggles to put a label on her religious beliefs. The author completely explains my beliefs in a way that I have never able to do.

Check it out if you haven't already.

I hope everybody had a great Holiday!!!

I've been hibernating, but I am slowly coming out of my slumber! It has been great just laying around, drinking peppermint mochas and watching movies.

Happy Week After Christmas and Happiest New Year to you!

you lucky girl! I need to get a ipod shuffle! I think I am the last person in America that doesn't have one...Have a happy New year!

I, for one, think about the Indigo Girls all the time. Because... they are my FAVORITE. Can I say that again? FAVORITE!! They remind me of my friend Amy and I love her. And now they will remind me of you too. Because now that I know that you like them (and Paul McCartney) you just went up one notch on my cool list. I have a secret list where I keep everyone's coolness status.

But I haven't read the book. I don't know if I will. I saw her on Oprah though

And I love ipods. I have the black one with the video screen. I only got it for Jazzercise but now I love it. I want to get the new little square one with the video screen but I just found out that means I have to get a new mac. (long story) Might be hard to convince Justin on that one...

Oh man. Here I go again with another long comment. Sorry. You just don't even know how long I have been waiting for you to post! Days, I tell you! Days!

Two of my kiddos got iPods, too. I think we are the last family on earth to jump on the "iPod wagon" but oh my gosh! Hubby and I are both freaking over them. He now wants a shuffle to use when he's working out. Me, I love my daughter's nano - you can actually watch videos, movie, and play trivia games. I guess I'm behind the times, but, these things just freakin' amaze me.

Glad you've been having a fun and relaxing holiday. Happy New Year!

I just found your blog, and LOVE your writing style! I will be checking in more often...Oh and I just finished Eat Pray Love last week, so you weren't the last one to read it :)

I have been thinking about reading this book. I was unsure because I'm a go-to-church-every-Sunday girl, and I didn't know if it would be up my alley. What do you think?

Loved that book! Glad you're enjoying it. Too bad we don't live closer, I think we're on the same wavelength re: spirituality. Love my video ipod - it's awesome!
