She LIVES!!!!!!

Sorry no post yesterday - I needed a break from the computer.

Here are my eats for the past little while ...

Thursday evening I was STARVING so I had a smoothie and another slice of pepperoni pizza.

For breakfast yesterday I had a green monster:

And an unpictured glo-bar.

Lunch was this:

And since we STILL haven't gotten groceries ... dinner was an egg and cheese bagel sandwich with hot sauce. LOL. Seriously we have no food in the house!

Last night I went to a friends 30th B-day party! I forgot my camera :-( But I drank red wine and munched on about 10 chips with dip, about 10 little shrimp and 2 crackers with meat and cheese on them. I had a lot of fun meeting new people and visiting with old friends.

Breakfast today was another GM:

Today the hubby and I are FINALLY going grocery shopping!! I am also going for a 90 minute massage, and then we are going to have what we call our "Christmas Day" where we watch Christmas movies, and eat junk.

We have a Christmas party to go to tonight at our friends parent's house. It is an ugly sweater party ... but we can't find any ugly sweaters :-( We have checked the used shops/ thrift shops etc. and they are cleaned right out of ugly sweaters.

I will be back later with a recap from today ... but I would like to leave you with a survey for 2009. The hubby and I and 10 of our friends will be in the Dominican Republic over New Years, so I will do this now instead!

A Little 2009 Survey

1. What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
Slacked so bad on a class that I didn't even read half the text book before the final.

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I didn't make a New Years resolution. This year my New Years resolution is to learn to run. I want to run a 1/2 marathon this year.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
A friend from work and a relative.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Hubby's Grandma :-(

5. What countries did you visit?
US (Las Vegas) and before 2009 is over we will be in the Dominican Republic.

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
A baby bump :-) No, I am kidding. Or am I? I am going to go with "A Life." And "A Lottery Win."

7. What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
July 23rd. Our 5 year wedding anniversary. We flew to Vegas that day and ate dinner that evening in Emeril's Table 10 Restaurant.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
I earned a second degree, wrote an honours thesis, and got a permanent position as a teacher.

9. What was your biggest failure?
I failed at keeping a clean house, because I was too busy. Luckily I have an angel for a hubby.

Tickets to Vegas, and Dominican.

14. Where did most of your money go?
School, Vacations, Bank.

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Going to Vegas, Being DONE school, camping, going to the Dominican

16. What song will always remind you of 2009?
Party in the USA maybe :-)

18. Compared to this time last year, are you richer or poorer?

19. What do you wish you'd done more of?

20. What do you wish you'd done less of?
School. But it was a necessary evil.

With family in both Regina and S'Toon.

22. Did you fall in love in 2009?
I have been in love since 1998 ... but I fall in love with my hubby all the time ... all over again.

24. What was your favorite TV program?
I liked Big Brother, and this season of Survivor has been AWESOME!

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I don't hate anyone, and never have. Hate is a really strong and horrible word. No one deserves that.

26. What was the best book you read?
Did I read for pleasure this year?? I can't even remember. I am sure I did, but I don't know what I read.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?
I really like Owl City.

28. What did you want and get?

I got everything big that I wanted ... a permanent position at work (that I had been waiting 5 years for), a second (honours) degree, a finished basement, 2 out of country trips.

29. What did you want and not get?
I wanted to learn to run, but it got too cold out before I really could get into it. That's okay ... there is next year.

30. What was your favourite film of this year?
I hope it is still yet to come ... I am thinking that "Precious" or "Avatar" might be up there.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I went out with friends for dinner and then dancing. I turned 27.

32. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
Winning the Lottery, or the home lottery house :-)

Oh yeah, and not being in school would have helped.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2009?
If I like it, I will wear it ... and I don't care what others think of it. Leggings are TOTALLY pants, if the shirt covers the butt. Period.

34. What kept you sane? Chris and blogging.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most? I always fancy Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?
None really ... I am not that into politics to be honest.

37. Who did you miss the most?
My Mom ... she is too far away ... even if it is only 2 hours.

38. Who was the best new person you met?
People at work! They are awesome!

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2009:
This to shall pass.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

You could pull me through.
You could always pull me through.
Even when I’m lying here,
drowning in my blues.
You take the sting out of the rain,
and bring the sun back up again,
and you could always pull me through.

(For Chris).
