So, here’s the deal

7 Jan

I was all ready to write a new post last night after Pilates/Hell with Margaryta when we turned down our street and all the lights off…  No bueno!  Mind you that it is January and even though we live by the beach it’s pretty chilly right now.  So what do you do when the power is out for two hours? a) put on multiple layers of clothing b) play SNL Trivial Pursuit


Ah,the candlelight...


Also, I put four blankets on my bed and wore socks.  Oof, too many layers.  Of course the power came on fifteen minutes after I put all that stuff on!  Sheesh.  At least the power got restored and we didn’t have to freeze.

In other exciting home news, we rearranged the living room.  Which was quite exciting.  We put in new Ikea stuff, but still need a bookshelf or something for our “Island of Misfit Toys.”

The bookshelf we had all the DVD’s and CD’s was only being held together by a very weak piece of cardboard backing.  Kinda scary actually.

Another fun surprise came yesterday in the form of a crisp ten-dollar bill.  Our homeowners association gave us ten bucks for participating in the Christmas decoration competition.  Score!  I didn’t even know we were competing!  A welcome surprise…


Thank you Homeowners Association!



Lastly, I want to send out a big hug and thank you to Lena and my class of great kiddo’s for nominating me for the “I Make a Difference Award”  It was super cute that they were so excited to give me the poster they made.  They kept it a secret since Christmas!


I do make a difference!



Thanks Lena, Courtney and Rm. 24!
