Clean, Organize, Create

We had a wonderful day yesterday with the kids. Gifts were exchanged, lots of food was consumed and lots of wii was played. We had a great bowling tournament...and I'm telling you...you can really work up a sweat playing those games. I counted that as my Friday workout!

Everyone stayed over night and they were all quite slow getting up this morning. I already had my workshop cleaned and reorganized before any of them were out of bed! My understanding is that the wii playing went on until around 4:00 a.m. and for Michael and Matt, that was the second time this week that they went to bed shortly before the sun came up.

Once everyone headed out, I am working on my new decoupage items. It's going really well and I can't wait to get some of them done and listed in MyOtherShop on etsy. I might be able to post a couple pictures tomorrow if they are dry enough.

Matt decided to head into the city (Chicago) tonight to have dinner with Tresa and Chris and to visit with some of his high school friends that live in the city, so the house is very quiet.

It has been raining...yes raining...all day today. Our snow that I just wrote about and posted pictures of is just about gone. Rivers and streams are flooding and there are tornado watches and warnings not too far from here. This is really the strangest December I can ever remember!

Irv just headed to town to get us Subway and some fries. If you recall from previous posts, I start my new food sensitivity diet soon, so I am consuming everything I can that is on that list before I have to give it all up....cookies, bread, sugar, fries....all of the good stuff!

I have been off work since the 19th and sure am enjoying this. I can't believe I have to go back to work on Monday. What a bummer! At least I have Wednesday and Thursday off next week....I could really get use to this!

Yes, Wii bowling definitely counts as a workout! Like you, I've got to start a diet on Jan. 1. I'm not looking forward to it, and I usually don't last long, but I've go to try! Good luck on yours.

Hi there,
Yes, the wii is fun. I have been eating also, like I will never see chocolate and cheese again. I am planning on a diet overhaul too. gluten free, etc. The wii helped me control things a bit, when I saw that I had gained again! It weighs you each time you log in. Fun exercises and it gives you feedback. You must look into it:)
I am back into work mode too. Have taken some time off. Feeling better now too, my cold finally cleared up yesterday!
Cheers, Shelagh

Hi Kathy, so glad you enjoyed the holidays with family. I always feel a little let down when all the fun ends.

But 2009 is upon us and lots to look forward to:):) Hope you do great with your new diet too.

Wii arm is going to be the next injury, just like tennis elbow! That is a very pretty snow shot at the top.
