Not much to say

As usual, there is always many, many things going on, but nothing worth blogging about.

So, what is going on?
There are some unfortunate things:
-The Capital Ship - This is what we call our large SUV that we haul our family about town in.  It's dead.  The brake lines blew and there is no way to repair them.  Apparently, the underside of the SUV is like the rusted Titanic.  Every time something breaks, and they try to repair it, it crumbles to bits.  The mechanic said to get rid of the thing.  Easier said than done.  So now we are dealing with what to do now?  Our entire family can't fit into the Hubby's car.

-My schooling - To continue on with my school, I'm required to take and pass a computer competency test.  To make a long story very short and to save you my rant, I'll get right to the bottom of this problem.  I didn't pass the test.  I can't take next semester.  So, right now, I'm a grad school drop out, but hopefully only for a little while.  This gives me several more months to study for this stupid test and hopefully I can pass it in time to sign up for Spring/Summer semester.

Enough with the bad.  What's good?
- Today is the last day of school for the kids before the holiday.  They are so excited.

- Netflix is great!  I've been on a major "SeaQuest DSV" kick for the last two weeks.  Netflix is feeding my obsession right now.  It will pass and I'll be normal again soon.  Until then, watch out!

- Christmas lights! I love Christmas lights.  Our Christmas tree has blue lights this year.  One of my favorite times of day is at night (huh?) when I can turn out all the lights in the house except the tree.  The blue glow is so peaceful.  I love to sit in the rocking chair and just look at the lights.  Why can't we have lights up all year?  I think I would like that, but then, Christmas lights might not be quite so magical if I used them year round.

Well, that's it.  Exciting, isn't it?

Holy crap Molly! I'm sorry about your car! I'm going to have to call you in a few. I'm really sorry about school - you'll get back into it. And if you start dreaming of talking dolphins, you'll need to take it easy with the Sea Quest DVDs.

sucks about the car.

I love christmas tree lights too
I always tell Kyle that if I get alzheimers or otherwise generally lose my mind to just leave the tree up year round - it will make me happy and I won't know its not christmastime anyway

It's too late, Susan.
