Spoiled Rotton

Wow...it seems like forever since I've posted!

I had a fantastic (but BUSYYYYYYYYYYY) Christmas. We went to our friend's for Christmas Eve and had a very yummy dinner with them. On Christmas Day, after opening and playing with our pressies, we went to Joe's sister's house for Christmas Dinner. We had a great visit with his family.

On Boxing Day, I drove 1.5 hours to go and pick my Mother up. She spent the last three days with us. All we did was eat and gamble at the casino for three days straight. It was soooo much fun!! I managed to turn her Christmas present to me into enough money to buy a fancy digital camera (thank you nickel slot machines). I'm looking at the Canon S3 IS, but I'm going to wait and see.

Santa (aka Joe) bought me this:



I have yet to sit down and figure it out. I was hoping to do so today, but I can't move from the couch. My head hurts and I feel like I'm getting sick. Blah!!! I'm so excited to use it though. I have been using my 15 year old Walmart Singer, I have never used anything fancier than that, so this should be fun!!

My Mother also surprised me with goodies. She gave me her button collection. I can't believe how pretty these are!!



She also gave me a jar full of buttons, already separated by colour!!!! Can you believe she did that??? I haven't had a chance to open them up yet, but I can't wait to do so.



Despite the fact that I feel like I'm dying, I ran over to Walmart this morning and bought one of those organizers for nails. The kind that is like a mini chest of drawers with a zillion little compartments to organize all my buttons. If I can drag my big-fat-I-ate-too-much-at-Christmas butt off the couch, I will get that organized this afternoon.

I also got a digital camera for Christmas..Canon S3 IS. I think the IS (Image stabilization) is important for me...as I always manage to shake the camera. I like the large view finder and the fact that the screeen can fold in. On really sunny days the view finder may be the best option. Your former neighbour DM
