brand new year.......





wow.....2011.......loving the looks of that 2011.....just kinda cool!!!!

what a wonderful christmas holiday we had.....erin and mike spent all day on christmas eve at our home......then we had a delightful turkey dinner....(next year it's christmas tacos for mike!) then off to bed for all of us.........i was awakened at 830am to a full course breakfast......eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes....the whole thing.....table set......wow!!! that is the first time i have ever had it all done for me!!!!! then they (mike and erin) cleaned it all up!!!!! not a crumb was left!!!!! then off they went.....on their 21 hour drive to utah! they made it to cheyenne wyoming that night and finished the drive to utah on sunday! they noticed that we had more snow than kansas or nebraska!!!

mike loved the ipod adapter for his car and installed it that night! erin LOVED her cricut cake.....so much that we opened it up.....set it up and cut out designs for the christmas cupcakes!!!! what fun to watch the kids enjoy all their new toys!!!!!!! rex loved his new iphone 4.......he wanted to get it going but had to wait until sunday!!!! i got some new cricut cartridges and a new phone......also a cool jacket and a few other fun things!!!!

rex and i stayed home on new years eve......quiet night watching tv and just hanging around! then saturday 1 jan 2011 we went to steinberg ice rink in forest park for some wonderful ice skating...with monica, tim, peter, benjamin, beth, jacqueline, katie, kent, clare, bridget and chad!!!! i held on so tight to that railing all the way around.......i just couldn't remember how to do it (skate).........then on the second time around i got it.......not fast but i WAS skating!!!! then i stopped to chat with the friends....and pose for some photos.......and while standing still......holding onto the railing i was asked to move a little to the left...and i slipped and fell.........onto my left hand!!!! wowsers....i thought i was gonna pass out.......felt queasy....then climbed back up and finished the photo session! beth asked rex if i was laughing while down and he said....NO>>>>she looks stressed!!! so monica came with me to the indoor area to sit down......rex got me a soda to help the stomach thing! after some soda i felt much better!!!!! then i noticed the bump on my wrist......and my inability to move it!!! so i had both monica and rex help me get my rings off.......all FOUR of them......the thumb ring that never comes off.....the middle silver ring.....and my wide wedding band and anniversary band!!! wow.....all i can say is that it hurt to pull on those.......and thank goodness i thought of it cause they would have all had to be cut off!!!!!! then off to the first aid place (at the rink...monica aided another lady who hit her head on the ice and was bleeding from her barrette that caused a laceration)......a little gauze wrap and some tape and it felt stable!!! after sitting a little longer i got up and went back to skating!!!! about 1 hours worth!!!!!! i NEVER fell while skating......just standing still!!!!! then off to monica and tim's for some appetizers and hot chocolate!!!!! loved it all.......and every one of those children are remarkable!!!! so sweet!!!!! kent found a urgent care close by and by 715 pm we were off.......xrays and the diagnosis of LEFT DISTAL RADIUS FRACTURE!!!!!!( that's a fancy way of saying i broke my left wrist!!) damn......rex kept saying.....ahhhh, it's just a bad sprain.....too bad it wasn't just a sprain!!!!!! so i emailed david irvine md and he agreed to see me today for a cute cast!!!!!! unfortunately for me they didn't have lime green or hot pink.......so it was purple, baby blue, white or black!!!!! so classic black for me........now i'm going to stop at michaels or archivers for some prima bling and super glue!!! gonna dress this thing up!!!!!! and one more great point.......it's WATERPROOF!!!!!! so i can shower without worrying about it!!!!! yeah for me!!!!!!
i still love my life.......and i love my work!!!!!!!
