I am addicted to facebook. When Carey first asked me to her friend, I honestly didn't get it. Of course I wanted to be her friend so I accepted and it's all been downhill from there. It's been amazing to be reconnected with people I graduated with coming up on 20 years ago. Some of those friends I have known all my life. I think it's realizing how small the world really is. Kind of makes you feel safe and content knowing you have so many friends in your world that you thought you'd never see again.

But, last week I got a few of those "you've been tagged in a photo" comments. When I clicked on the photos, I almost died. Um, these are pictures from cheerleading days when my hair was huge and kind of blondish-orangish color. So I realized these pictures could turn up at any time for everyone to see and comment on. And they're in my facebook albums. But I never put them there. Oh yeah, someone else did. ugh. I'm kind of scared! I wonder who will tag another crazy hair photo? It's out of my control I guess. I will just have to hope and pray no photos turn up that I would rather have in the confines of my high school photo album for my eyes only.

Either way, I love this facebook thing. Big hair or no big hair.

I don't know what it is about being in church that makes me want to cry. I don't know if it's watching my son diligently taking sermon notes, soaking in the words. Or maybe it's listening to my girls sing their little hearts out on songs they know, even if they're off key. Or maybe it's seeing a guy with a pink mohawk sitting in a pew all by himself, worshipping God because God doesn't care what you look like. Or maybe it's just God revealing himself.

I don't know what it is but if I think about too much while I'm sitting in church, the tears would stream down. It's kind of strange. Or maybe not. All I know is, Sunday mornings sure have more meaning now than they ever did before.

And that's a good thing.

That's all I can say right now. It's 3 in the morning and i can't sleep because I am in pain! Making a long story short, no one told me it was going to snow today. So I put on my snazzy brown boots with the cute heels and headed out. Then it started to snow! Who knew? Apparantly more people than me as I was the one of the few people out and about with high heeled boots on. Anyhoo, I needed to drop off a CD to a client of mine after picking up my girls from school and before going to Brody's BB game. Needless to say I was in a hurry, got out of my jeep, took a few steps and boom...there I was, on the ground. It was a hard fall but yet, slow motion. I remember thinking as I was heading down, " race, my race..." which is not for a few weeks yet but still...

Thank God I didn't break a bone, hit my head or really anything else serious. But as I sit here with an ice pack on my hip and some sore muscles, I feel like I got hit by a car. Ow.

Note to closer attention to the weather forecast and don't wear my snazzy brown boots on days where there is even a slight chance of snow. Ugh.

Thanks for your vacation advice. And I'm glad Vegas was vetoed out of the list. Personally, I never really wanted to go there but didn't want to miss out on something. Just in case it was great place to visit. Belize sounds heavenly, so does Cancun. But hubby wants to stay in the country this year. If you knew him you would know he just couldn't relax in Mexico. So, we're leaning towards San Antonio. The Riverwalk, the Alamo, warmth...I'm already looking forward to it. Thanks again to all you seasoned travelers...

In the meantime, I'm going to cuddle up in my blanket and sit in front of the electric fireplace which surprisingly enough, warms even me up. And i'm always cold.

So today as we wait for the big vikings/eagles football game, hubby and I are contemplating where to go for our 15th anniversary. It's not until May, but this cold, crappy weather is starting to get old. It doesn't help when the current football game is in Miami where it's 80 degrees, sunny, warm...did I mention warm? And I just got a family picture from my wonderful brother who spent the holidays at their home in Palm Springs. Everything is green, lush, warm...did I mention warm? time I may just invite ourselves along.

The finalists for our getaway in May have come down to:

San Antonio
Anywhere warm

Any advice here would be great. The last place we went together childless was Sacramento/San Fransisco. We honestly don't know places that don't involve amusment parks, zoos, reptile get the idea. I want this to be just for us. No kids. Must do some more research and hope it warms up here in the meantime.

Did I mention Miami is 80 degrees today?!
