It's beginning to look alot like christmas.

OK, not really. We're in Orlando, so it still looks green, hot, and ocasionally rainy. But, we did put up our decorations.

Since we don't have a fireplace, we hung the "stockings are hung on the bannister with care". And yes, those are DOI posters in the background.

One of the great things about cathedral ceilings? We have room for a 9ft tree.

That is all for now. My mother-in-law arrives this evening, so I need to clean the house. gtg.

I love this.

I would have to win the lottery before I ever got knuckle tattoos (job killer). But if I ever did, BOOKWORM would definately be considered.

My name is Sandy and I'm an addict.

I'm warning everyone now. In the next week or so (whenever we run out of CokaCola at the condo), I will be giving up caffeine. THis will be very dificult.

I have a huge addiction to caffeine. I drink a 2liter of coke a day, every day, for more than ten years.

But, I am giving it up. Hopefully, no caffeine will mean no more cysts. Thats the theory anyway. I've been doing alot of research, and sources say that giving up caffeine drastically reduces ovarian cysts. I'm also changing my diet to eat healthier, and I will be excercising more. I already walk to and from work everyday, but I'm going to start yoga as well.

WHy all these changes? I'm sick of all the side effects from the hormones I have to take for my cysts. Seems ridiculous to take pain killers to treat the migraines that I get from the pills I take to treat my cysts. Too many drugs. I'm going natural.

If anyone has any advice or tips on any of this, please let me know. As someone who lives on soda and cheeseburgers, this healthy diet is going to be a challenge.

Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. We didn't really do anything for my birthday, but we did have a lovely dinner at home (thanks to Tiffany for sending me Omaha steaks!) and Mom got me a coldstone cake. Yummy.

I have the day off work today, so I am working on xmas cards.

I am feeling the itch for a new tattoo. Hopefully soon. I have a new favorite website, Bookworms with Ink It is a website dedicated to literary tattoos. Totally inspired me to get a Vonnegut or Kerouac tattoo. (I already have a Douglas Adams tattoo)

The cramping in my fingers is going away, which means its time for more xmas cards!

We had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family. More than 100 people were there. Yes, I have one of those HUGE southern families, with third cousins and even fourth cousins. The food was great and it was nice to see everyone, after spending so many holidays on tour in the past. It was Nate's first Thanksgiving with my family. A bit overwhelming I would imagine. I mean, I don't even know everyone there, so how could he? Hubby was quite entertained by the lip-synch though. Its an unusual tradition, but always alot of fun. My family does a lipsynch show every year. Its always hilarious. Here are some pics.

My cousins did the "Blues Brothers" (and yes, that is the same saxophone I played in middle school band)

My Grandparents were absolutely adorable!

Mom did a folksy number (and it was her 50th birthday!!!)

No, I did not lipsynch. Nate and I just cheered everyone else on.

and yes, tonight is the last night of my twenties. Goodbye 29, hello 30.
