So, guess what? I am going to Seattle! :D I sent my mom out last week and she has called me every day to tell me how much I will love it, and how cold I will be! Did you see the 12 degrees in the first paragraph? Really! I am not sure what she means. It is in the 40's and 50's there this week. Yes, it rains but I don't think cold rain can compare to snow and freezing wind. For some strange reason my mom and brother must think I don't know how to dress my self now that I am over 50! I am cracking myself up over this.
I haven't come up with any more spare time since last time I blogged and my to-do list has gone from snickering at me to actually growling. I tried shoving it under the bed but the dust bunny colony has had a population explosion so there wasn't any room.
Santa Bob gave me a new Kindle for Christmas and I got the cutest cover for it from http://www.etsy.com/. Last Christmas my sister got a new Kindle so sent me her old one (thanks toots!) but I wasn't sure I would use it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE books..the smell, the feel of the paper, the weight in my hands.. My love affair with books started when I was about 11 and read my first Cherry Ames, Student Nurse book and hasn't cooled down since so I was pretty sure I would only use the Kindle occasionally. Big girl that I am, I admit it, MAN WAS I WRONG. Damn Kindle! The new one is even easier and lighter than the old. It is so easy to download books even my mom can do it. Hardcover books are only $9.99 - 12.99 and I can get them any time I want...no waiting on line at the library. I love it when people ask me "hey, is that one of those book things?"
I wish someone could show me how to insert pictures! I don't seem to have the knack for it yet. I am going to sit down with my little brother this week and get an inservice on my camera, Mac and this dang blog! See you in two weeks!
