So I finally have my stove and oven working again after 3 1/2 weeks without it. Can you believe it went out the night before Thanksgiving in the middle of baking and cooking for Thanksgiving Day? It may not seem like a long time, but boy it was! The diet went out the window. Thankfully, we had a camp stove, but there's only so much you can do with that. I'm essentially starting over. :-/ But I am SO happy I can really cook again.

Then, as many of you know, I had burned through our bandwidth for the month, so I couldn't be on here very much. That may be the only downside with Spark, is all the advertising. I know it helps keep the site free, but do they really have to have annoying videos? I boycott advertisers that do that, actually. I don't appreciate having the annoying ad or the fact that it means I have to be online less.

The reason this month I burned through so much data this month is because I found a new avenue of relaxation. I have discovered ASMR videos! What is that you ask? Well, it stands for autonomic sensory meridian response. Essentially, it means that there are certain sights or sounds that hit a warm and fuzzy place for you. Some people actually get 'tingles' in the nape of the neck area. I don't do that. For me, some things I've always loved are office sounds, or typing . . . People actually make videos of all kinds of things. They're very relaxing and help with sleep. I do not do guided meditation or anything like that.

Anyway, I'll have to keep that in check so I can be here. I did keep my login streak going. I'm somewhere around 64 days. That's the longest ever. I look forward to jumping back in and connecting with you all. I'm sure I'll have more funnies from my life with the kids.

Oh, and the product launch went well. We will be having more exposure in January at a trade show and a segment will be done on hubbies latest widget on Amateur Logic internet tv show in January. That's the latest. See all you lovely ladies a lot soon. :-)
