I went to Target today to buy yet another usb memory stick to backup some files. I have a tiny one and also a 1GB. The tiny one is from school that I used for all of my assignments and resume stuff. The larger one is for all of my pictures. Unfortunately it only holds about 1/4 of what I thought I'd be able to get on it. Target was totally out of anything in my price range for a 2GB so I went to Office Depot down the street. They had a 4GB by Memorex for $30! The guy at the store helping me said that just recently went way down in price. So I got double of what I wanted for the same price as I could have gotten at Target. Now I have more room than I know what to do with! I'll be able to bring everything important with me now except for iTunes I'm ok with that, really. I think. I'm still not sure how I'll get my iPod and iTunes account onto a new mac from an old hp. Can't deal with that one now anyways.

But yes.....happy morning at the Office Depot for ARW. I love saving thing without getting a message saying my memory stick is full

ok so now here comes the real big decision.......do I take my Minnesota Wild Dancing Snoopy figurine or do I leave it on top of my TV where it's safe and sound? It's the only Snoopy thing I did not pack away last year when I moved. It's my absolute favorite Snoopy because he's in a MN sports uniform plus it came to me in a very unusual way. A family member that I really feel like I don't know all that well, and I would never think they'd know about my Snoopy collection, bought it for me on a trip to Northern MN for no reason other than she knew I was a huge Snoopy fan and thought I was a huge Wild fan...Vikings not Wild but still.........

So (I'm avoiding cleaning so it's time for long rambling posts) do I take it or leave it? I'm 33 and I still feel like I need to have Snoopy around me. There's something wrong with that, yes? Maybe I'll leave it. I'd die if it broke along the way.

OK that's solved.......for now.

I have one box, the kind that office paper comes in so not too big or small, that's filled with all of my U2 dvd's, some of my other favorite dvd's, U2 by U2, pictures of the family and some of my travels, and a few other books that I'll never read but would like to one day. I also have my portable dvd player, a small cd player, 2 small fans, and a laundry basket filled with sheets, blankets and towels. That's all I really have besides clothes and culinary tools. I feel like I should be taking more. My sister thinks I'm crazy to take so much because I can use whatever I want of hers but my mom thinks I'm not taking enough.

I just cleaned out my backpack for the first time since I bought it last summer. No wonder I could never fit anything in it I found a lot of missing items. I also found some graded assignments from July. What a mess! I also found about 4 towels, 1 apron, a hat and a cravat (the blue scarf).

So how'd the cleaning go? ^

I would say take a Snoopy or 2 (or 3 or 4), not the favorite one, though. Nothing wrong with wanting Snoopy around you, nothing at all.

I have Boyds Bears by the ton. I collect them.............it is nice that they are plush, though..............no breakage. I like to have them around me. Comfort.

It is a large outdoor skating pond here. Snow not so much this time (up to 3 inches, thank goodness), but it is so icy (state dept of transportation: "Stay off the roads if you can, do not go out).
Flooding here too. The creek is becoming a river. Gotta get ready for work now...............I have a headache if anyone wants it.................it is free to the the person who takes it away.

Hi Lila

Schmeg, I hope the solo went well

arw, it sounds like you've had a busy weekend . . . take the Snoopy, just wrap it in a lot of newspaper so he won't break

shari - 9 pills for $100 Hopefully you won't need to use them that often

I just woke up from a nap. I should have been using that time to clean. I'm telling myself that it is a good idea to go into another crazy busy week well rested.

I just ordered a new pair of black flats to replace the ones that are almost ready to be retired. I've been going through all of my clothes and getting rid of anything haven't worn on the last year. Even when I can't wear those shoes anymore I think I'll end up keeping them since they've been everywhere I've gone.

A voice from beyond



The phone rang just as I was checking out my broken leg forum (yes, I belong to a broken leg forum for support and information; I'm a geek ) and there was a pause.......................a man began to speak and he didn't ennunciate too well:
"I'm Don Ho..............." ( I freaked a bit). I then actually said to the voice, "You're dead, but thanks for the use of the chair"...............Once I stopped freaking out (and considering calling Ghost Hunters) I listened to the voice ....................it was a campaign recording for a man named Don Holt who is running for a office in the area................the man needs to learn to ennunciate.
Oh my god.............I thought I was losing it for a bit.
The migraine meds are making me lose it. I need to sleep.

More snow for WI??

Semi-solo went well, considering we practiced for 20 minutes after the club session and then had a 5-minute warmup before the show. I was instructed by another coach not to kill my impromptu partner because we need him. My kids were all thrilled to watch me skate, although after the first dance they demanded, "Why was it so SHORT?" It's not my fault three patterns of the Kilian lasts 32 seconds. They all did a great job and my synchro girls performed better than they ever practiced. They even quickly repaired a broken circle without panicking and were SO proud of themselves after!
