I must be crazy

I think I must be crazy because I am actually planning to go to Target today! Although I am not stupid enough to go to the one near me in New Britain ( too near the mall for my sanity). I am thinking of going to the one in Southington. I figured it is far enough away from any other type of shopping opportunity, that it may not be too insane. Wish me luck!

Tis the Season

Its official, the countdown to Christmas has begun. We have a local radio station that is playing nothing but Christmas songs this weekend. I got to hear Dominic the Donkey :) Now its stuck in my head because it is so silly!

TSO is playing in Hartford tomorrow. My mom & I were toying with going to see it. We are both big fans of TSO but have never seen them in person. When I went online however I was really disappointed with the seats available. I would have thought with the economy the way it is, that there would have been more tickets available. The only seats we could find online were up in the second tier (not bad) but the section was the same part of the arena as the stage, meaning that we would have to crane our necks to see the sides of their faces & profiles. Too bad. I think we will plan ahead next year & get tickets at least a few weeks ahead of time so that we can really enjoy the concert. I will be happy to listen to my cd's this season.

cell phone

The time has come to shop for a new cell phone.... well the contract expired over the summer and I have been procrastinating ever since. I think it is time to start looking for the next phone, I just have to figure out when would be the best time to go. Of course the store that I have gone to for the last 4 yrs is in Westfarms Mall; which is going to be a freakin nightmare until 12/26 !! I think it may be best to check out first & see what options I have in my price range first :)


There are a few times of year that both sides of my family get together, I look forward to them because its a great time to catch up. I got to spend time with Dad & Mom's sides of the family (dinner at one & dessert at the other)... It was a busy but very enjoyable day.

Thursday I had the turkey dinner at my Dad & Stepmom's house. It was wonderful to see my grandparents and aunts and uncles. I am getting a bit concerned with my grandpa. I know that he had a bit of a slip & fall a couple of weeks ago at home, but I was not prepared to hear about the bandage on his forehead, a new melanoma that was removed earlier this week. I remember last year he had another melanoma that he had to have radiation for that killed his salivary glands... When he came in that day as I was giving him a hug he lost his balance (this I could understand - he had 3 large dogs swarming around & I think the puppy got a bit too excited). I just really hope that all will be ok with him. I will have to say a special prayer for him. I also heard that my great aunt Penny is gravely ill with cancer down in FL, and was asked to say a special prayer for her to...Her daughter passed away within the last year, also stricken with cancer. I have to remember to send a card to my cousin out in MA.

Dad is also undergoing some medical issues, some skin cancer on his forehead (thank god not melanoma!) he looks like he has a rash & he can't wait to finish the medication! Sometimes being so pale of skin is NOT a good thing.

The holiday was a good one (aside from the medical issues) I wish we would get together more than we do now, but as we are all growing up & are busy with our own lives I know it gets harder. It will make me treasure & appreciate every chance that we have to be together.

Oh my Edward

Went to see Twilight last night in Hartford with Michele, Vizma & Julie. Wow the Oddesey theatre that we saw it in was awesome, almost IMAX size. Made looking at Edward all the more enticing. :)

The movie was good, but does not compare to the book, although I have to say that Carslile was much yummier that I expected! I wasn't ready for the movie to end... I can't wait for the next one. Darn it hurry up! We ended up being the last ones in the theatre & could have easily stayed for the next showing, they never would have known.

I so would not mind going back when Brenda gets back from her honeymoon!

Twilight movie

In wake of huge debut, studio green-lights sequel ‘New Moon’! Woohooo!

And I have to say seeing Twilight on IMAX screen was awesome

I got home yesterday to the lovely surprise of having no phone... Once again AT&T is having problems with my phone line.... I have nothing but dead air. I tried using a corded phone to no avail....still no luck.

I searched for the repair phone # in the Yellow Pages and made my call from my cell phone. I never spoke to a live person, only the computer. One of the options was if I had no dial tone on my line; I selected the option & then I get asked "are you calling from that number now?" WTF??!!! How can I call on a line with no dial tone???

After about 5 more min of pointless questions I get the message that my service should be restored by 8pm tonight, I guess we will have to see if that is acurate. Thank God I have a cell phone.

And thank goodness its FRIDAY!!!!!!!
