On a different note, the weather is nasty here today with Blizzard like conditions (snow and nasty wind) requiring many rural towns to close school for the day. On top of that, it is currently -6 degrees, but feels like-29. The highs all week will be in the negatives, without the wind chill. I look forward to Friday, when it should pop back up to about 4 degrees. geez.

Hopefully I can get my but out of bed for a morning swim tomorrow! eeks!

I am off to read Eclipse in bed, until I fall asleep reading... it's just so addicting!

Wait a sec - I thought the Half Blood Prince comes out this summer? Did you have a bootleg copy?

I got my first road bike last year, too - love it!

My BAD... I was thinking I saw a Harry Potter movie this past year, and I thought it was that one... I can't keep 'em straight anymore! LOL. It might have been one on DVD! Ha!

You had such a great year. Hope 2009 is just as great.
Stay safe in the blizzard.

p.s. I'm half way through Breaking Dawn. Enjoy the 3rd book, there is some great action at the end!

Loved the Twilight books! And the weather? It's approaching Wisconsin as I type. The snow's already here and the freezing cold temps, wind and nasty wind chills will be here tomorrow morning when I wake up. Stay warm!

Brianna said...

Stay warm! We had that nonsense blizzard stuff here in December (so much so that we were literally house-bound for 2 weeks straight - didn't even get MAIL for that stretch, either - over CHRISTMAS, even). So, I feel ya! Hang in there and grab yourself something warm to drink to keep your insides warm. Guess you won't be headed outside for a run, eh?

Shannon said...
