My hubby gave me a Wii Fit for Christmas, and we had the best time all together playing sports and doing balance challenges. The evening after Christmas, of course, I was at the stores picking up Guitar Hero -- World Tour. Oh yeah. I loved this gift -- it had us all DOING something together. Let me repeat -- TOGETHER.
Of course, now we're back home, the wonderful daughter left this morning, and Doug is really more interested in watching football. Fortunately, one can also Wii SOLO. Wheeee!
Therefore, it is with some wii-grets that I have to announce that blog postings may temporarily interrupted, as I quit my job, cancel all social engagements, put a hold on all hobbies, and set the telephone on standby while I work on my new careers of professional bowler, fitness instructor, and Rockin' Guitar Heroine.
Lead guitarist stage name -- Lindora
Bass guitarist stage name -- LindyB
Band -- The Venom Spitters
Other Band -- D Legyndz (Rock On, Alexandra!)

I'm back! And although I said there would be art today, I'm only showing pencil stuff. I'm playing with some mixed up acrylic stuff on watercolor paper, and it is waaaaay slower going than I'd expected and there's nothing to show with it but a bit of a mess right now. Meanwhile -- I realized I was letting my day planner Moleskine go to waste, so I started using the paper for pencil sketches. I think that I'm going to find a way to carry a little one and a pencil with me from now on -- I'd forgotten how fun quickies with a 2B or 4B could be!
Of course I have to figure out how to keep the pencil from getting all "smeary" as I don't relish the idea of spraying fixative every day in a sketchbook. Not that it matters....
Anyway, maybe I'll manage to do something Christmas-y tonight! How is everyone doing with their shopping? So far I've managed to avoid the mall COMPLETELY.

I'm back from my week with no Internet access just in time to take 5 minutes to post and then run out of town for a couple of days. The problem WAS the modem and it took him less than ten minutes to get a new one out of the truck, replace the old one, and check that things were up and running. HOW WONDERFUL is THAT!!! It's been a busy week, and I spent the weekend in Kentucky visiting my sister, so will tell more about that when I return.
Meanwhile, while I'm gone, I will have the chance to look at some of YOUR stuff, just not the chance to post anything myself. See you soon.

And the theme for December will be ...
(Look, I have an internet connection -- I'm on! Then I'm off ... then on ... then off... and I've tried to make some comments with no luck. Oh well -- great work out there tonight, what little I've been able to see! :-)
"Yeah, we can get somebody out there. We'll have to make a service ticket. Um, our first available appointment is the 7th."
"Uh, yeah. That would be next Sunday."
"Well, we can't on the seventh. Do you have anything a little bit EARLIER?"
"Uh, well, no. The first available would be on the 7th."
"Well, how about Monday. Can you come Monday in the evening?"
"Uh, well, no. We can come Monday between 12 and 2. On the 8th."
"This is the first. That's a week."
"Uh, well, yeah. Monday. The 8th. Between 12 and 2."
"Okay. I guess that will be it."
"Uh, well, yeah. If it DOES start working between now and and then, you call us right up and we'll cancel."
Not bloody likely. I can't believe I just noticed the little light on the modem and run up here to catch it in a good moment now. If it keeps working from now until then, I'll call them Monday morning. Otherwise, they're replacing that modem!
So if I'm spotty in posting this week, I'll catch up when I can!
(And as fast as I can I'll put Twitter up on the sidebar...)
(And really, they're a pretty good provider company and are always very polite and as accommodating as they can be. I'm GLAD that their business is good enough that they're busy. I just wish they had a spot in their schedule NOW for me. TONIGHT. Sigh.)
