It takes me just a little longer to figure things out! It goes back to that “old dog, new tricks” theme. But what is so wonderful is when you figure it out without having to rely on your more tech savvy children, and you learn to do it from the Internet, or occasionly…on your own! Posted from my iPad!
My little Christmas report for you!

Okay…I just love Sprinkles Cupcakes! So after my small cloudburst this morning, I found this video. Such randomness can’t go unrewarded…me either! All I can say is that a lot of really yummy cupcakes gave their lives for this very funny video! I think Sprinkles Cupcakes are taking the country…by storm!
As I sat at Scott’s desk, shuffling through paperwork and trying to make heads or tails of it, I realized that it had been hours since my breakfast feast of last night’s Karl Strauss’s dinner leftovers – BBQ Chix Macaroni and Cheese (yum!) – and that if I didn’t eat soon, I would be facing an additional element to my already developing headache. The thought of preparing anything would just have to wait until dinner, so I was trying to think of something small to tide me over. Then I remembered what was in my fruit drawer in my frig…a peach, a pear and a plum, the remaining pieces from a fruit box gift from a kind friend. Gathering them into my arm, I proceeded to the sink to gently wash the very ripe fruit, when much to my consternation I am confronted by small, steady stream of tiny black, quick-moving creatures that so easily seem to find the one random crumb or misdirected piece of candy long since forgotten by the giant creatures that they persecute – ants. And so I came to face to face with this small army of insects. The trail stretched across my counter, over the stove top, across the other counter and up the wall to parts unknown. Funny thing is that I could understand their invasion if I had left food out or someone had not wiped down the counters. I am perplexed as to why they were all converging to one spot. There

Disneyland with big kids...wonderful!
A couple of days is plenty of time to recoup from a mini-meltdown...

It reminds me of that old black and white silent film series, “The Perils of Pauline” – and no, that isn’t from my era. But I feel much like a damsel in distress, tied to the railroad track with a train speeding towards me or maybe I’ve been tied to big log and I’m headed towards the giant saw (oh…that sounds like it came from a more current movie that I will not watch); or maybe I’ve been blindfolded and tied up and kidnapped by wild Indians (in the form of my family) and tossed
