Whatever oodles the noodles

So it’s been a while since I have updated. I have no real reason. I have been updating at OD, just not here I guess. I don’t know why I usually post the same thing here and there, or there and here. Whichever you prefer I guess.

Let’s see happenings since, November 1st. Um, made it through the whole Election ’08 drama. Yea Democrats! Except my state flipped R and the last minute 3% points! I was so hopeful we would go blue this year.

I also made it through my first full on ap run at work. When I say full on, I mean all the ap for the entire company! Yeah, over 250 checks and lots and lots of $$$.

I am still working on Christmas presents. I am scaling back what I had originally planned to do. I am only working on my aunt’s present right now. It is monsterish and I just need to focus on it and spend my time on it.

I got a Wii and have been spending a lot of time playing tennis. I am so addicted to tennis I want to get a cute little outfit. Well not little, but still. It is so much fun.

OD is doing DePhoMo for December and I have been debating if I want to do it or not. I would have to really buckle down and get into the computer mode at night. You post a new random picture every day of December. This month is NoJoMo and so you journal every day of the month. It is a take off of NaNoWriMo, which is National Novel Writing Month. I am doing NoJoMo, this is year number three for me, 2006, 2007 and 2008. It is fun, I enjoy doing it.

The weather is changing. Every day is long sleeve day for the most part. Last night we had freezing winds and snow/rain. The roads were kind of icy this morning. It looks beautiful out right now, but quite cold. I haven’t looked at the 10-day for a while…well I looked. 40s through the weekend, some snow on Sunday am. Then 30s and 40s the rest of the week. I think the snow should be coming soon. Maybe I am just looking forward to it because I am getting excited about the holiday season. I’ve already seen a few holiday themed shows this week. A little early, but whatever oodles the noodles. There are some shows that I just love and wish would go on for like two hours, like Bones, Life, The Mentalist. Those shows have some of the best writing on television right now. Ooh, don’t forget to vote People’s Choice

So that is pretty much my life in a nut shell.

My vote is...

Here it is November 1st and I don’t have any new projects finished for Christmas. I need to sit down and figure out a schedule of how much I need to do each day to get it all done. Stressful!

I didn’t do a whole lot today. I went to Wal*Mart and picked up a few things, couple of Christmas presents. Then I went to the mall and bought a new ring and was able to use the coupon. Then I spent a long time just chatting with C. She showed up for a meet and greet that never happened. It was a nice visit. I looked at a few more stores and then decided I needed food. I gambled a bit and won a little money. Enough to only have spent about $25 for the day including the stuff I bought at Wal*Mart.

Now I am just at home. The boys are eating either a late lunch or early dinner. Well Cooper is eating, Elliott is just hanging out staring at him. They have been playing outside for a while. They split a big ghost cookie. I picked up the kitchen a bit and cleaned a few things off of my bed. I didn’t realize how late it was getting. I think I spent an hour playing a game while the boys were outside. They will be ready to lay down for a quick snooze soon and then out for a little while longer. Cooper slept until 4:20 this morning. That was nice of him. Then slept until 7:30. Then I got up and watched some television and took a shower.

Tonight I will knit and watch hockey. I think there is a new episode of Knight Rider on tonight, so I will watch that. Tomorrow I will probably pick up some more in the bedroom and maybe the back t.v. room and then Monday night I will do a full clean of the kitchen and living room.

I am so over the political ads. I voted a few weeks ago so all the stuff I am getting in the mail is a total waste. The debates were wasted on people who had already voted too. This stuff needs to be done earlier to catch the early voters and the absentee voters. I love voting absentee. Honestly, I am not going to make up my mind at the last minute. My vote is going to be pretty much the same in November as it was in June unless something major happened. Of course I had to vote for Obama now when I voted for Hillary in June. That is the one thing that just totally sucked about the general. It tore my heart a little.

Well I think Cooper might need more food and I need to check on a few things. I just wanted to get my first NoJoMo post in before the day ended.
