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:
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!!!
