Well, really... does anyone ever check these things anymore?? I looked back.. wow, I use to blog.. I use to make cards... but... after the year I have had.. looking back at 2011... I got laid off.. yup... Mid June.. no notice, nothing.. just this is it.. great.. and there are so many dental hygiene jobs out there.. YUP.. thanks for nothing... I did get to enjoy Hannah this summer.. driving her here and there.. and she is so growing up. I can't believe that she is almost 15... now has a boyfriend... Noah.. he is really nice.. but still... all of that going on.. hormones and all.. Lord help me...
but I think I am actually writing this to put down my goals for the year. Some of you may know.. that many years ago, I did weight watchers.. and lost a lot of weight.. I should have kept it up.. but no.. and gained a lot back.. so this year is my year to get fit again.. to really work at loosing the weight.. I have a goal in mind... I am not sure if I can do it... will keep this posted.. doesn't mean that I am always going to check back.. but I am going to try...
Well.. Happy 2012.... keep your fingers crossed that I find a job....

OK, now as you know.. I am a dental hygienist.. and I get to see icky stuff all the time.. I read the articles about gum disease and how to prevent it.. all that good stuff.. I learned in school that gum disease can lead to low birth rate.. but according to this article.. they have now connected it to a still born baby..
Well.. I guess another thing I need to let my patients know about....

Stupid Questions to Haunt a person...

Questions That Haunt Me...

Can you cry under water?
How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated
instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it's only a "penny for your
thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea
to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every
two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court,is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look
at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked

Why is "bra" singular and " panties" plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp,which
no decent human being would eat

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't
he fix a hole in a boat?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap,why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables,what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the hemisphere, but call it a
hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face,he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Thanks for stopping by and thinking about the answers... (and just for the record, I did know that the ABC song and Twinkle Twinkle were the same tune... and didn't even need to sing them....)

Handbook 2010

Today, I got this in an email from my BFF Dawn, and I thought that it was really good, so I thought that I should share it...


1. Drink plenty of water.
2.. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants...
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy.
5. Make time to pray.
6. Play more games.
7. Read more books than you did in 2009.
8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
9. Sleep for 7 hours.
10. Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

11. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12 Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16. Dream more while you are awake.
17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade

away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23. Smile and laugh more.
24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

25. Call your family often.
26. Each day give something good to others.
27. Forgive everyone for everything.
28. Spend time w/ people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32. Do the right thing!
33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34. God heals everything.
35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change..
36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up..
37. The best is yet to come.
38. When you awake alive in the morning, be thankful for it.
39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

2009 Christmas Tree.... and it's shaken... not stirred...

As usual... we went to get our tree this weekend.. I love this time... I get to enjoy the tree for the ENTIRE holiday season... so here is the trip to the tree farm.. our lovely tree... and all that happened while we were there.. (OK, not really....)

SO it was a long day in the truck for Hannah.. yes, I know it is blurry, but I was laughing and it was bumpy...

So here it is... the tree... it really didn't take us long to find it this year.. I think I am getting better at saying... "yup... this is it.." and not thinking something better is out there...

Pat doing the guy thing and cutting the tree down.. quick.. easy..

And, as I said.. our tree was SHAKEN... NOT STIRRED... it was funny... we have pine cones on the top of our tree, so when it was shaken to get stuff out.. our tree sent "stuff" flying...
Then they wrap it up for us before helping us put it on the car...

And here it is.. The finished product for 2009!

Thanks for stopping by...
Merry Christmas!
