New Scale and Aftermath of the GREAT FLOOD of 2006

Well, the old scale is done, finished, finito, no more...we have gone to one that provides values to the .2 level and I am so excited! I have continued to eat healthy, not as much exercise with the tapes, but lots of walking and activity, but don't take my word for it, talk to the pedometer...over 10,000 steps each day!

This summer we had a bit of flood here at our little casa, in an effort to multi-task, even while sleeping, I started the washing machine before bed and well, things did not go so well. Somehow the water connection in the back came undone and so the machine continued to wash all night. All OVER OUR FLOOR, and then dripped down in the basement and onto the family room carpet, under the fridge, dryer, and on and on. Yeah. Good times.

Well, we thought that everything was fine and cleaned up, well so much for thinking. We went to decorate our tree on Saturday and went to pull our pre-lit baby (no guilt - we used to go and cut it down) out of its nice, secure plastic tote and well, let's just say it was sloshy...from months ago. Ewww.

We made a trip to my most-hated Mega-Store and purchased a new one, one with tiny little multi-colored lights. The kids chose it and then proceeded to decorate the lower 1/3rd of that baby until its fake little limbs were drooping.

We also lost some ornaments and other things and that was a bummer, but oh well, not much we can do about it now.

Tomorrow is back to work and back to the grind. I only have 6 more days to work though before I am off for the holidays, although those 6 days will be interspered over the next 10 working days.

All for now!

It's all about the family time. Sorry about the tree. Hope none of the lost ornaments were homemade. They are my favorite ones.
