The girls are back at the theater. MilkyWhite in one production, TheMadHatter in two and TheQueenofHearts is in three! TheQueenofHearts got the lead in Mulan, Jr! 🙂 TheMadHatter is disappointed in the role she got in Mulan, Jr (but likes her role in The Wiz) and MilkyWhite is pleased with hers. I know they’ll all do really well.
Last week, Chief came home with a “belated” Christmas gift for me (not really late since it was still Christmas, but you know what I mean!) He brought home the new Mario game for Wii! I LOVE IT. It is so much fun. I hope that Snowbabies and The Cabbage Patch decide to get this game too. Then some night when we should be knitting, we could play Mario instead Then I could play with their kids! 🙂
It is COLD! At 9am, it is 20°!!! Before you northerners get all hysterical, this is Texas! We don’t do cold!!!!
My mom always sends a Visa gift card for Chief and for me for Christmas. I spent mine on yarn (yeah, surprise!). I ordered Swish worsted weight from KnitPicks. Only I didn’t order enough for what I had in mind. *sigh* Oh, well, I’ll find something to use it with (I can’t just order more. Dye lots matter. Well, I can order more and will, but will have to order 18 instead of just 6 so that all of the yarn matches.) I love, love, love this stuff. Well, I think I do. I haven’t knit with it, but it is some of the softest wool I’ve ever touched and it is machine washable! WhooHoo!
After much dread, I plucked up my courage and got on the scale last week and was pleasantly surprised. I did gain weight, but instead of the 10 or 15 lbs I expected, it was only 4. I have already lost that plus another pound, bringing my total since 24 September 2009 to 32lbs lost.
I am working really hard at keeping my anxiety in check as SuperSoldier’s deployment creeps ever closer. I am thinking about flying out to see him before he goes, but I am not sure if that will be possible. I do hope he can come here for a couple of days. That would be best as everyone could see him.
I am looking for (audio) book recommendations for fiction books. I like things like The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. I don’t really want to read vampire books (no reason except that they don’t really interest me.) I’ve just listened to LOTR and HP on audio book, for the 4th or 5th time and am about to start The Chronicles again, but after that???? Any ideas? (I don’t like profanity in books, but especially so in audio books, so if your favorite is sprinkled with colorful language, I’ll pass.)
