Out with the OLD and in with the NEW!

The weather certainly put on a new twist to Dreaming of a White Christmas this year. Ty had just finished shoveling and plowing the driveway for the umpteenth time Christmas week and a few hours just before the guests and Santa is to arrive...the snow plow came buy and wished us a Merry Christmas buy piling a two foot mound in front of our driveway. NICE!

For some reason this year, Christmas came buy way too fast and it seemed like a chore to get the tree decorated. In the end it is always worth all the great times with Family and Friends.


Emily and Lauren are learning new party social skills.

So, as Fast as the holidays are slipping by, time is but the essence to get our home in order for the 2009 race season. More projects on the list pending doom to get done ASAP! THE BASEMENT PROJECT! First on the agenda was to get rid of shit that we don't use and forever hang on too. So after a few arguments as to what we were going to throw out, off we went to the City Dump. It was a perfect day to clean the basement. Pouring rain and 50 some degrees outside.

Project # 2: TY's move to the new Derse building and setting up his new office. I here they used 100% Green materials in the entire construction. This building has LEED Certification which sets tough standards.

Pretty spectacular place for the employees of DERSE. They took into consideration many of the employee's ideas such as a work out facility, showers and lockers for the commuter's and plenty of natural light to work by. I am jealous.

I am looking forward to the 2009 season of WORS racing and all the awesome people that surround this community. Now it's time to get back to work! I can't wait to get outside again because my arse is getting sore riding the frickin trainer and I am sick of looking at the fan. Yesterday during my ride, I had to get off and change my shorts and socks cause I was so flipping hot. Any suggestions on keeping cooler this winter and surviving the indoor trainer rides would be much appreciated!

next on the list:

  • update profile for WORS women
  • sort pictures
  • wash basement curtains
  • ride
  • continue to load up on tylenol for this never ending virus

Grown up toys for Christmas

Nothing like getting stuck in grid lock traffic and surffin the web :-) Check it out! The Apple iPhone3G is better than ever! Now with the new 2.2 software upgrade, it's even faster!

Think inside the box

Had to reload the Shuffle for the anticipated road ahead.
Nothing better than rewarding yourself with a little chocolate now and then.

Gluttony

My Christmas tree, Holiday cards and gifts are all half done since I seem to have more time for this. The Peariso's sure know how to throw down one hell of a partay! I had quite the belly ache after drinking too much double espresso the morning after but it sure was tasty. I even got free lessons on how to use their fancy espresso machine by the Barista Master herself.

Addiction

I heard on the news this morning that researchers are coming up with a new disease for those of us who are plastered to the Internet on a daily basis. They are calling it some kind of addiction problem and that anything over four hours a day qualifies you for the white suit and rubber room. That is totally silly.

Well my computer is still at the doctor and it looks grim. That darn face book bug ate the shit out of everything. Looks like I am getting a hand-me-down from my husband in the mean time. I can tell you I am having withdrawal symptoms from not being able to post my recent pics and it is driving me absolutely crazy. Who ever said the Internet is addictive? :-)

WARNING

Face Book has sent out a malicious VIRUS!

The message is sent out to look like a Face Book friend stating,

" You've been Filmed! Haven't you noticed?"

(the video looks like a You tube link but it is spelled wrong) yuo

You then click on the video and you are F*****!

So for now, I am opting out of answering any F****** e-mails sent with Face Book on it.

Regular e-mail and phone calls work for me.

Harass me

Researchers at Stanford University found that people who received automated exercise reminders by phone were as likely to go to the gym as people who had real life trainers harassing them. Keep yourself honest by registering for prodding e-mails from hassleme.com.uk. Plug in your e-mail address, how often you want to be nudged, and a direct order ("Get to the GYM! Now! Love, your incredibly Skimpy Bikini") you get the picture. You can create your own reminders.

Anything helps at this time of the year.
