A dvd with an interview of my dad immediately following his stroke and an interview of him a month ago. I watched it. I cried. That's about the only thing I got that matters spit to me.

It was nice to see that he's actually made progress, 'cause sometimes it sure doesn't feel like it just seeing him day-to-day, but he really, really has. And it's wonderful.

Well, for Christmas this year I got a MP3 player, gold watch, choc. covered cherries, gel pens, earrings, make-up but the Best gift I have ever been given(I suppose this belongs in Zoo confessions, but it was A Gift!!)was a warm home and a family to spend Christmas with!! I called trying to reach my boyfriend to tell him that the homeless shelter I was in was kicking me out in the street at 5am the next morning(when temps were dropping to 30 degrees, which is Freezing to This Californian transplanted in Florida! BRR)and I had no where else to go! I got his Ex-wife instead, and just broke down crying because I just did not know what else to do! She said, 'Stop crying, pack your stuff and I am coming to get you'! So.....I suppose I should have said 'grab the kleenex!'...but this IS true! Best Christmas I have Ever had!!
So UnforFF...I can totally relate: it's really not all about gifts that one can buy! Is It? May your Dad get better, even better than today! Hang in there!!
Oh, and Happy New Year To All!! Here's to 2008! (Pss..it's My birthday,too!! lol! )

Best t-shirt slogan ever.


I (we) did nicely this year...we bought ourselves a 18 x zoom, 27mm wide angle, 8 mp Olympus!!! It's lovely...although we could not wait so we opened it up a few weeks ago...so we did not have anything for each other under the tree this year.

I got a new Laptop Tote and matching Compendium from the kids for work ( it's really stylish & funky! ) it will go lovely with my new office ( its modern and has a WINDOW!!!!) & a new PC that i am getting in the new year!

Cash & Vouchers for clothes shopping...Yayyyyy!!

A box of Lindt Chokkies

A bug Zapper

A set of serving Dishes
