Love and Hate

Ultimate Mahjong, oh how I love you. Even though I'm on vacation, I can't seem to tear myself away from the computer because you have put the ultimate spell on me. Luckily, I will be able to continue this obssession when I get back to Utah (thanks to Kelly for letting me borrow it.) Unfortunately, I already spend too much of my life in front of a computer. I guess I'll need to get a pillow for my bum. Ü

(Yes, I know, I should be ashamed. I should be, but I am not.)

Bowling and Dance Dance

Today my family went to Bakersfield for a little In-N-Out burger (so good) and then to a local bowling alley. While we waited for our lanes we went to the arcade section where we played some hunting games and dance dance. Here you will see Chad & Holly battling it out with the "rifles" and my 6 month pregnant sister, Kelly, doing dance dance, and yes, she was awesome at it!

Bowling was fun, except that I sucked! But hey, I had a good time and now I know that a career in dance dance would be more profiting for me then bowling. :)
Gabby is so cute and fun! So is Holly!

Keith bowling.
I love my family.

Tagged: Times Two

Okay, so I have officially been tagged by both April and Jana, so here goes....

(Sidebar: Jana and April, check out each other's blogs. Russells and Springerville....I think you two would get along great!)

6 Things....

1. I am borderline Obsessive Compulsive. When I set my mind to do something, I pretty much can't ignore it until I do it, even if I know that the end result will not make me happy. I usually end up annoying myself, because I know in the end it won't make a difference to me...I KNOW this going in, and yet I still can't help myself. I can't let little things go, like crooked pictures on the wall, or dirty laundry on the floor (spiders, ew!- it must be in a laundry basket. I have a serious fear of spiders but that's an entire blog all on it's own), or when I decide that I want to get something, anything, and I must drive to 4 different stores to find this thing, regardless of the time of day or night. You get the idea.

2. I thrive on being busy. Don't get me wrong, I can sit around with the best of them. But I'm usually knitting, or folding laundry or messing around with the computer. My mind is constantly thinking about what needs to be done, or what I want to get done, or just things....My mind is not easily turned off. It's really quite annoying and a bit on the pathetic side.

3. I love Yarn!!! I am so obsessed with knitting and if I go into a shop to get one little thing, most likely I will end up spending $30+ on yarn I don't really need but can easily find something to make with it. I usually have 3-4 projects that I'm working on at any given time. It's wonderful!

4. I am bilingual. My younger sister and I can speak gibberish to one another. We have this uncanny way of getting each other worked up to the point we are literally speaking in gibberish (a combination of words, laughter, and I don't really know, but it's fun)....we finish each other's sentences and can be in a fit of laughter carrying on a conversation. It's probably one of my most favorite things to do in life.

5. Music is my life. I am a singer and although I know I was blessed with talent, after 7 years of professional voice lessons, I still get nervous to sing in front of people. But I LOVE to sing and I love music. Music is so much a part of me, I would rather lose a limb then the ability to sing or hear.

6. I have always been able to make friends easily. Even with my own insecurities, I am one of those people that can be content being alone and also become friends with a stranger.

Okay, I...tag...Jessie, Holly, Kathleen, Mel, and Shannon

1.The player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves - try to find 6 you haven't already posted about.
2. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names, and then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog for the rules.

Face Lift

I'm trying to spice up my blog a little. Tell me what you think? Do you like the blue background? Opinions people, I need opinions!

Blowing off the Dust

Well, my friends, I'm a disgrace to the blog world. I promise I'm not dead....just living in the dark ages. No internet at home makes it really hard to get on this thing; but I promise I will do better. Please don't stop reading....

Happy Turkey Day to all of you. Keith and I, with the rest of my family, are in California at my sister's house for the weekend. It's nice to get away from work and life. Sadly Keith and I have been sick. I am getting over a nasty cold and larangitis; he has a sinus infection. But we are fairing well and happy to be here.

Not much is new with us. Christmas is just around the corner and I can hardly believe this year is almost over. We are both looking forward to the holidays (not the snow) and have enjoyed this past year more then we probably should. Ü

Till the next time, hope you all survived the day and didn't OD on too much pie.
