The neighborhood started firing off things about 8:30 PM and didn't stop until 12:30 AM. They did fire off things all that time, they stared, the cats who don't like loud noises would go crazy, we would get them calmed down, fire off things again, cats go crazy, settle them down, etc. We got to bed late and got up late. I am glad the holidays are all over with. Now back to the grindstone for all of us.

Eh, no worries there, Kat. I had both boys with me, and either one of them can drive home (now that youngest has his permit). I actually was perfectly fine to drive, had a couple glasses of wine over a matter of 7 hours.... but still set a good example for all the kids that were over there not to drink and drive and my oldest drove home. :)

Gosh, it was so windy and bitter today! :( Good day to stay indoors and take down all the Christmas stuff, that's for sure. Sure is nice to have the living room back together.... I forgot how roomy it is without a huge tree in it! ha

No Renee and honestly, I'm not sure he cared as long as it wasn't a clot. Now that I am sure it isn't one, I think I will start working those leg and calf muscles over with a massager and see if I can work out the problem that way.

Amanda, I use to work the Sudoku puzzles online in the Washington Post too...but I honestly like the ones on the NYTimes site better. There are 3 levels daily - easy, medium, and hard....I work all three. Sometimes I then will jump over to WP and work theirs too. The thing I like about WP is you can go back and catch those you might have missed...you can't do that on NYT....but the NYT site will give you hints if you get stuck which I sometimes do on the hard ones.If any of you want to try the ones in the NYT...go to their home page, then look down the column on the left until you see crosswords/puzzles, click on that and it will take you to the puzzle page where you can select which puzzles you want to work.

I forgot to include today's news -- apparently the Petty/Gillette Everham merger is really going to happen. The new name will include Petty, and the 43 will likely be driven by Reed Sorenson and sponsored by the Air Force.

I'm feeling torn. I'm glad the Petty name will remain, but it feels like wrong, somehow -- it'll be the name, but not the Pettys.

Hi everyone -- hopefully my computer's stopped hiccoughing by now!

I tried to go to my WI today, but it turns out that my WW meeting was cancelled because of snow. Wimps! I still don't know where this snow came from -- there was supposed to be just a little today, with more coming on Fri/Sat. My DH was a dear and cleared off the car and shoveled the driveway so I could go, too. (I was going to help, but he'd finished by the time I dug my brush and scrapers out of the back of my trunk.)

Jan, I'm glad your follow-up went well. It's amazing how much help a brace can be. I have a prescription to get one custom made (I have calves of steel, so the standard ones don't work all that well) but haven't gone for the appointment yet. I'm a little scared of what it'll cost. I'm glad you don't have a clot. Did the doc have any idea what was causing the calf pain, then? As for Sudoku, I'm an addict!

Amanda, I'm sorry for your loss. I hope it doesn't make your scheduling too crazy over the winter.

I do the NY Times every day....they have three levels of sudoku puzzles I do, and I have also started doing these puzzles where you have to find the different sets. YOU need to go to their site...LOL. I think if I ever joined another site that had them I would be on the computer all day playing puzzles! LOL...I don't mind, but the rest of the family might since nothing would get done around the house then.

Morning all,

I see Jan already has been given instructions so I shall remain quiet.

Amanda, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. That is so scary when it happens so suddenly. Was he married?

Now where do ya'll get such silly notions that I over do things??? emoticon Thanks for your concerns...actually my knee has done a pretty good job of slowing me down. Just from doing every day things like laundry, taking down Christmas decor (Ron & Eve put them in the attic for me), fixing meals, getting groceries, etc will put me off my knee the next day....so this time there is no fear of my over doing it.

Jan I will also tell you to take it easy and rest. Then if or should I say when I have any surgery you can tell me to do the same think. I am like you I have always rushed and done the thinks I shouldn't have after every surgery I have had, including the 2 C-setions.

Amanda, you know we are going to have to tie Jan down in some fashion or she will start doing things she shouldn't be doing like more painting, moving furniture, etc. LOL Just kidding, Jan.

But you do have a habit of trying to do too much too soon - - so take it easy, please! Sometimes you worry me when you start telling us what you have been doing.

Just relax (as much as you can) and let God do what the surgeon has started so you can be ready to go camping again and of course to see your sweetie on the race track.

I wasn't worried, I knew my blood was too thin to be forming any clots...but you are right...that was a headache I didn't need or want.

I'm watching the Mustang Challenge tonight. I have had two Mustangs in the past and I would have loved to have taken my first one on a track just to see what I could have done with it. There is a new kid Andrew Cadell that is really good...he is 19 and pudgy. Plus they are showing some old or should I say early Indy racing....good stuff.

Jan I'm really glad to hear they didn't find a clot. That's a headache (um..kind of a pun, kind of not) that you don't really need right now.


Katherine we've had a few Wii injuries in the house. I read an article the other day about Wii injuries and the emergency room lol so far I haven't transported any injuries due to the Wii but it will happen one day I am sure.

It's a rough time here in my fire/rescue community, one of the guys from a neighboring station passed away suddenly on Friday. They did the "last call" for him tonight, it was chilling to listen to. I stayed behind to help run any 911 calls they may have gotten instead of going to the viewing.

The prayers always help, Bobbie. Had the sutures removed today and had my first chance to talk to the surgeon since the surgery. He admitted it was a HUGE meniscus tear...his words exactly. He said how long the pain would last is really individual, and that the reason I can't bend my knee much is because of the amount of fluid still around the knee. He did give me a brace to use and that really does help stabalize the knee so I can walk with less pain. He sent me for a doppler study to make sure I had not formed a clot since I was having all the calf pain...that was negative. So now it does sound like I just have to give it more time.

I will keep my eyes open for the Wii and take it under consideration.

My father who is in his 70's loves the Wii. He doesn't have one, but plays at a friends. So I could see your mom and you having a good time. The bowling is fun. Yesterday I was playing tennis with Samuel and I hit him in the head with my backhand. You get kind of involved with the game. LOL

Jan, I love the Wii the girls have. It's so much fun to use them. My oldest GD will just stand in one spot, flip her wrist and she has done whatever needed to be done so I think ur Mom would enjoy using one. At least it would give her kind of exercise.

I love to play the bowling game. Playing that gives me more points that I could ever get in a "real" bowling alley. LOL

Glad to read in the posts that you are getting along better Jan. I guess some of our prayers that were sent your way did help. LOL

Jan I love my Wii. It's something your mom would enjoy, too! Tons of retirement homes had Wiis donated to them when they first came out and most of them bought 3 or 4 more to keep up with the demand of everyone wanting to play. It's an easy way to get up and do something without putting a lot of stress on your body, you can go all out when playing sports if you want or just sit in your chair.

I should be getting paid by Wii. And by NASCAR for as much as I defend them...

Hi everyone. Talking about sleep....

My day to relax started with DH waking me up around 9am so we could go to breakfast. Yes, it was a good breakfast, but I wanted to sleep! I didn't have a good night's sleep the whole time I was in MI (bad mattress, bad pillows, too hot by morning), and I hadn't had much sleep for several days before we left.

On the bright side, it was a good breakfast.

After that we went grocery shopping for longer than an hour (had to get extra steps in by going up and down aisles we didn't need). We bought a lot of good, healthy food, but now I'm too tired to make any of it!

Gosh Bobbi...maybe that is why I have been sleeping at least a few nights a week now.. emoticon ...thanks for taking up some of the slack...LOL. Glad you had a good Christmas season.

Man, this isn't fair...everyone seems to have access to a Wii but me emoticon . Hhhmmm, as the economy worsens maybe I can find a used one in the paper or something. I guess that means it is bargain hunting time again! emoticon

It has been warm here today...upper 60's, but suppose to drop into the 30's again tonight. It is almost like having a repeated Indian Summer again.

Anybody seen or heard anymore news on Sadler today? I just feel so bad for him, because he is a good driver.

OK everybody, don't beat me up too badly. It seems as if I haven't stopped running since Thanksgiving. For Thanksgiving dinner we went to my DD BF's parents house and had a ball laughing at some of the antics that they pulled when they were children.

My DD was working 10 hours shifts so I got conned into going to high school, picking up the GD, getting up early next morning and taking her back to school and then doing it all over again the next day.

Had a great Christmas, our temps were in the 80s with a slight breeze blowing. I have had my windows open almost all month.

The GDs got a Wii for Christmas and everybody got into the act. Love that thing, just wish I had one of my own. Makes your exercising so much more fun, and it really works your muscles.

Then to top everything off, I thought Jan had given me some of her problems with not sleeping. I have been getting between 2 and 3 hours of sleep a night.

Today, I was supposed to be at a meeting at 2 pm, but I called and told them that I couldn't make it.

I've been working on an afghan for my oldest GD, which is almost finished. At least these late nites were good for something.

I'm glad that the holiday season is almost over. We are supposed to bring some finger foods to a get-together in the building but I'm hoping that I can fall asleep early and miss it.

I really missed being on here talking to everybody. Glad we will soon be able to start watching our races once again.

Will talk to all later. If I don't get back on here, Happy New Year to all!!!

Bobbi
Keep on moving no matter how small the steps. May the Good Lord take a liking to you and yours always!

Hi,

The wind is howling here, I'm really tired of it. Went to the store for a few things, balanced my checkbook now I need to pay bills. That is why I am on here, don't want to. LOL

The new year is fast approaching so don't forget to figure out your fitness minutes that you want to acchieve for 2009. My goal last year was 7200 and so far I am at 8521. So I think my goal will be 10,000. It's fun to keep track and see how you have progressed through the year.

Candy, do an online search...I saw all types of lamps for all sports tonight, both college and pro in every field.

I love Sound of Music. I just got through watching it on ABC...I had not watched it in years. It is such a feel good love story. I grew up wanting to be just like Maria...LOL.

Hi everyone! We're finally back from MI and I'm exhausted. (It doesn't help that I wanted to stop in Whole Foods since it was on the way home, then DH wanted to go to Target, to use his gift card, as soon as we got back.)

About doing stuff on my own, I've noticed that I'm more reluctant now that I'm older. I don't know whether it's because I've become more realistic about the benefit of having backup with me (for whatever might happen), that I'm more easily bored and want guaranteed good company, or I've just become less bold.

Jan, well, to me your knee is new stuff!

Angel, I love that you dad got you the monitor! That's a great gift!

Deb, oooh, thanks for the New Moon info! I'll have to make another trip to Sam's (that's actually where I picked up Twilight).

I found a site that has Tony's Kat, but they want $119 for the table lamp and $199 for the floor lamp...just like the ones I ordered! Jeff's may be going cheaper because he is changing colors this year...I could care less about having the "correct" color. I'm not that picky.

I know...I have been watching and thinking for a week about it...I couldn't make up my mind whether I should indulge myself or not...LOL. There was also a JG jewelry box on Ebay that played "Baby you can drive my car"...I waited too late on that one and there was only one of those. It sounded so cute.

If you do some searches you might be able to find TS because of his changing teams and numbers...a lot of his stuff may be marked down. I will let you know if I find a lamp of his.

I wish they would have more drivers items then just JJ, Jr. and Jeff. Roush drivers have a large following and of Stewart, but even cars are hard to find. Congratulations on your fines. Now you can see your poster with your new lamp. :)

Ya'll aren't going to believe what I just ordered from Big Lots online...have any of you ever seen those tiffany lights with the driver's numbers on them? I remember falling in love with them the first time I saw them at a store close to LMS...but the price was over $100. I got the tiffany table lamp for $30 and the floor lamp for $45...AND free shipping! For those that are interested all they had were the #24 and the #8 (Jr's DEI one). I use a floor lamp in my camper...so that is where that one is probably going to go...the other one in my bedroom of course.

I didn't even realize it was on until late last night...by that time I was into watching some movies I had bought....mainly older marked down ones. I have been watching NCIS for so long that I have seen almost all of them anyway...except for maybe the first year.With all the House marathons they have been running I think I am almost caught up with those...I am starting to see repeats now.

Hi all,

Jan, did you watch any NCIS yesterday. They had a marathon and my DH and I watched way to much. Between that and the Wii we didn't get much done. Did rearrange our bedroom and cleaned it up. Now tomorrow I need to start on the rest of the house.

Today is very windy, it's in the 40's but doesn't feel warm because of the wind blowing over the snow on the moutain. Deb, I hope those tornado's stay away.

My first wedding was a church ceremony, but not that long. Anthony and I got married in a little chapel in Reno with just a few family members. It was wonderful and I would do that again.

The were probably like me...if you ain't going to do it but one time, might as well make a day of it! LOL...if I ever get married again it will be an outside spur of the moment wedding with a party vs a reception afterwards.

Hey, I made it giving a 3 hr IV today, drove there and everything! That is a good feeling ... of course it is one of my regulars that I have had for over a year now. He just had the same surgery as I did about six weeks before me.

Deb it was a lot of fun.

Jan I checked in then had to do some stuff around the house before going to a wedding. I've never attended a Catholic ceremony before...wow. Our wedding ceremony was only 15 minutes long, theirs was over an hour! The wedding started at 2 and the reception didn't start till 5 and ended at 11 so basically the whole day was taken up by the wedding.

Jan sorry about your knee and yes you are entilited to a meltdown. I didn't get as much knitting done today as I wanted to, did get some more ornaments done. Gary's baby sister came over and brought her new boyfriend. He is loud, and rude, neither one of us like him. We hope it don't last long, it usually doesn't.

I'm a big chicken, so there are a lot of things I don't / wouldn't do on my own. But I wish I WASN'T that way... so I second Jan's opinion. And I also agree that it doesn't matter if your friends are male or female - if they can go, more power to 'em. :)

Jan, that is so funny. I have a giant (GIANT) poster of Jr from a leather shop in town, and someone had told me I should put it on my ceiling in my room. As tempting as it was - and it was - I figured I'd never be able to drag myself out of bed! lol Oh, and hey, it's perfectly fine that you had a meltdown, by the way. We are all entitled now and then - or more often if needed - that's for sure. And you've been through a lot, so you just cry with your bad self as much as needed. And thanks for rounding me up and bringing me back. Ahhh, I can always count on you for that, thank God.

Hmmm, I almost bought that new Trivial Pursuit for our family Christmas - guess I should have. I may have to invest - sounds like it did wonders for Amanda's family. :) And Renee, the do have the 2nd book (New Moon) out in paperback - I got it for $7.58 at Sam's Club - don't know if they have one around you. And yes, I am just that hooked on these. I am on the final one now. I keep trying to tell myself to slow down so I can "savor" it more, haha, but I have to keep going. It's ridiculous. But my sister and I were laughing about it at Christmas because she's reading them too (a little behind me) and is totally obsessed. In fact, her husband's name is Bobby, and she's renamed him Bobby Edward. LOL

Weather a little freaky around here today. We were actually under tornado watches and warnings today. I can't win!! I thought it was way too warm when I took son to BB practice - it was 57 degrees. And sure enough. So then we went to go to the game this afternoon - the tourney - and we got there, power was out. I saw the stoplight wasn't on and thought "oh no" - never saw signs of power all through town, so I figured as much. I've also split my time with the Wii all day today - too fun! I MAY be getting the hang of the golf after all!

Angie, since I am one of the single ones here....LOL...I go to 90% of my races alone...I have my own camper and I just pack up and go. Friends and family have gone to some of them with me. I think if you have a friend that can take the time off whether male or female, let them go. If you can't then don't cancel your fun just because you are alone. I always looked at it this way. During the race, you have a scanner or radio or ear plugs in and don't talk during the race anyway. If you want to talk, there are usually other fans all around you to talk to. Are you planning to camp, or do you have motel reservations?

Hey Everyone! Sounds like you all survived Christmas. I got a heart rate monitor from my dad and I'm pretty excited about that! I've lost a couple more pounds but it's probably just due to stress! LOL

My friend doesn't think she's going to be able to get the time off from work to go to the Daytona 500 with me. I don't know what to do. Would it be crazy to go alone? I really don't have many friends. Most of them are guys. I guess it wouldn't be that weird to take one of my guy friends. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the encouragement Kat. I go to have the sutures removed Tuesday at 5pm. I will finally get to talk to him about what he found and the prognosis, etc. Will know more then. I have always been known to push myself too hard when it comes to healing (or anything else as far as that goes...LOL)...so I guess I am just going to have to admit that I am not superwoman incarnated and will just have to slow my tail down until the healing is done. Darn that was tough to admit...I just hate ruining my reputation like that! emoticon

Now...what is everyone else doing? Amanda, you checked in this morning and then disappeared! Are you working?
