Some new things in life that are turning my crank:

Why you ask? You enter in your favorite artists or songs, and they make you customized radio stations! It's very cool if I do say so. Right now I am most enjoying my "Black Eyed Peas" & "Hall & Oates" stations. I bet you're thinking Hall and Oates? What a dork! I know, I know, but I am getting a great collection of 70s & 80s music from it. I also have a Lady Gaga station, Madonna, and AC/DC.
2. The fact that I can blog from Windows 07 right now. Well, we will see if it works, but right now I am trying it out.
3. The fact that I went out two times this week. It must be a record! I went out with our Vegas group this week. Tonight Thad and I went to Red Lobster with Elli and Tim. What a joy to connect with old friends.
4. My kids. Granted we are early in the break, but I have been enjoying watching Olivia and Kate play with their American Girl dolls nonstop. Ryan has been playing his PSP a lot, but we are also playing board games. We have been watching movies together, laughing, and just enjoying one another. Brady has had a rough week. I am hoping he is turning the corner on feeling crummy, being cranky, and being over tired.

Things that aren't turning my crank?
1. Maggie. She is such a brat. She has already put a hole in a new sweater Kate got for Christmas. She is lucky that she is so sweet by bedtime. I forgive her each night for all the havoc she wreaks(sp?) over our house.
2. Snow removal people. Basically we have a five feet of snow that is blocking our driveway. The plow sort of dumped all this extra snow in front of our house and our neighbor's. Thad said that I should be prepared to be trapped tomorrow when they come back. It's not about all the snow. It's about where they dumped it. It's in a spot that has nowhere to go. Grrr.
That's about it….I am curious to see if this will post or not.

I haven't tried Pandora but I have heard great things about it... its on my list :)

We get all of the plowed snow too!! We had to shovel half of it to even get the snowblower to be able to get through it... I feel ya on this one.

LOVE Pandora and am listening right now at the store! Finally found my favorite station...Adele. Great mix of Etta James, Norah Jones, Kate Nash, Dave Matthews, John Mayer and of course, Adele. Seriously the best. I had taken a break from it because I thought it was making my computer slow but haven't had that problem lately. Glad you are having a good break. Lucy and I had the GREATEST few days stranded together and I have to admit it was a little hard for both of us to head back to reality today....God I love that girl!

LOVE Pandora! Did I tell you about this, or did you hear from someone else. Right now, I have a BeeGees station, a Michael Buble station, and a classic holidays station. I'm gonna set up a Hall and Oates station, too. Then maybe a GnR one.
