Floppy Arms

Do you remember the scene in Harry Potter (not sure which one) where he breaks his bone, then the Professor makes his bones disappear? Floppy arm??

I felt like that today....x2.

Have you ever slept on your arms all night and when you wake up, there's absolutely no feeling in them? Just floppy arms? I woke up this morning and BOTH of my arms were completely numb...all floppy like.

Usually I just use the other arm to pick up the numb one and shake it around to get the blood back flowing...but I was helpless today because BOTH were numb. So I sat up and just started rotating my body, twisting and flopping my lifeless arms around until the blood started flowing. 

And I couldn't help but laugh hysterically at myself.

I'm trying to paint a visual...but I guess you could just do it yourself. Just let your arms hang lifeless and flail them around just using the velocity of your rotating body...

I'm a nerd.

I guess you had to be there....

Anti-climatic?? Sorry! :)
2011 was an alright year...I've heard a lot of people say that 2011 just wasn't awesome for them and overall I agree. I had a lot of heartache and hard times. But I also had lots of fun and great family to support!! I've been greatly blessed and had many new things happen!
School turned out great! Zupas was good to me. Randy's been the best supportive husband ever! Hope that this year brings good things like a baby!! Third times a charm right??

As for last years "Resolutions" let's see how I did!
1. Begin and finish Thank You cards from wedding...By march at least. 
(I know I'm bad...I'm trying...) CHECK!

3. Try new things. New food, new activities and new traditions. CHECK-ishhh.
4. Become fit and love myself. 
(I know this is everyone's goal. But I want to enjoy being active and doing outdoorsy things. And by having more confidence in myself, I can improve my marriage.) WOW...sounds like my marriage was rough...which it wasn't...and not so CHECK. I didn't gain any weight though!

Christmas 2011

Our Christmas and New Years was so nice. It was a much awaited trip home and so good to be with friends and family.

We started off with Randy's parents because they would be leaving for Hawaii later in the week. We went to Texas Roadhouse...twice in one day :) Randy loved it! We had his parents house all to ourselves which was nice. 

We went to my uncle Kents house for Christmas Eve where we do the typical nativity and open a few presents, eat and play. 

Posing for the Camera

Sheny not wanting her picture taken.

My dad too.

Check out Don's face....on the left :)

Christmas Jammies!

Our awesome new ski/snow masks from Momma :)

Talking to my Brother who's in Peru on a Mission...You can check out his blog here.

Then we went to the Cabin. Randy's parents got a new sled and I LOVE it...Wanna see my awesome skills????

I'm being dragged....because I refuse to let go. :)

NO one messes with the pro :)

New Years was great! We got together with friends and played games all night...Randy and his brother and friend played COD til two en la maƱana....Too much if you ask me! But I had my share of time wasting reading the HUNGER GAMES.
Most excellent read :)

Hope your Christmas and New Years was great!!!
