After Christmas Update

I've been meaning to write an update since I got back from my parents' house right after Christmas, but it just hadn't worked out. Things are starting to slow down a little at work now, though they will soon be picking up again.

I had a good Christmas. I got a TON of clothes, which were very needed. Unfortunately, the pants Momma bought me didn't fit. Well, they would have been a perfect fit other than the crotch going almost to my knees! And when I went to Wal-Mart to exchange them, EVERY pair of dress pants I picked up hit me the same way! But I had a couple of other Wal-Mart returns as well, so I have nearly $40 on a Wal-Mart gift card for later. If nothing else, I can buy some dress pants from Lane Bryant and use the gift card on regualar stuff at Wal-Mart, but I'm still holding out a little longer on that.

The hubby got me some great stuff too. I got two Nintendo DS games. Disgaea DS (which I have been wanting for a while!) and Zelda. I also got a Dragons daily calendar for my desk at work (another request) and a BEAUTIFUL glass dragon figure. AND a table for the sewing machine. It's a four-foot table with adjustable legs, and the table folds in half for easy storage after I fold the legs up. I'll be getting it out this evening to fix the hubby's work shirts. This is probabeinly my FAVORITE gift of the holiday.

The trip to my parents' was great, although I was sore for two weeks in one arm. My 4 year old neice Ashleigh decided to turn me into her personal jungle gym. I complained about being sore, but it was worth it. It's good to know that she does love me, even if I only see her a few times every year!

It appears that I may have tendinitus. I'm currently in brace and awaiting some test results to see. What fun! I just want to know what's causing me pain, and then I'll be happy. I go back Feb. 12th to find out more on that.

My classes are going well so far. I'm falling behind in my reading for Economics, but I'm ahead in my MIS class. I'm going to try to stay on track and not fall behind this semester, but I know that will not happen.

I had bought a some clothes off the Lane Bryant web site, and was kinda excited to find out the pants were WAY to large. So I finally took those to the store yesterday and got a pair of dress pants that fit. The pants I bought were brown stretchy jeans, although I could have worn them to work any day of the week. I exchanged them for brown dress pants, and will wash them tonight to see how much I have to hem them up. I really like them though!

Josh and I got a new washer last week. The motor was going out on the old one. I really like the new washer, and it's nice to have the clothes spinning out properly! They dry much quicker that way!

Hmm, I'm sure that there is other great stuff to mention, but I can't think of it right now. So I'll do some work stuff, and catch up on everyone's blogs until I come up with something else!
