I love this show!! I have been watching since season one and look forward to each and every season after. I am fortunate enough to work with a fellow teacher whose son-in-law was on Survivor Guatamala. It was such a neat season to have someone on there that is related to someone I know. That was the only season that I actually bought the team buff he was on and the merged buff.
I enjoyed the China season, to be able to see sights never seen before! It is actually educational. Anyway... that's all tonight folks.
Still feeling not so great...

I've been tagged...

I have been tagged by Tina! I am going to copy her directions for the way this is supposed to work. Here is the deal...You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name.
So, Here goes:

I-Idol Fan

So, if you are reading this, you are now tagged! Please send me a comment with your answers! Have fun~

Are Gallbladder Problems Hereditary?

Okay, my dad is having Gallbladder attacks and has been having them for about 2 years. I started having problems 2 months ago. Does anyone know if those things are hereditary or not? His attacks are much worse than mine though. He feels like he's having a heart attack. That's what we thought his first attack was. He ended up getting stents that time. Since then he takes a mixture that the doctor made for him to help with the attacks.
I am very curious about this, any comments would be welcome.

American Idol

Is anyone else out there kind of disappointed in American Idol this season? I usually vote every season for my favorites, but this time no one stands out to me. I am watching now and none of the guys so far are rocking my boat. Maybe it's just me...
Danny Noriega is weird to watch. He needs to go! What do you think? Who are your favorites for the guys and girls?
On a different musical note...I am so proud to see the New York Philharmonic Orchestra play in Korea. Saw a snippet on the TV of them playing the National Anthem and almost cried. I hope this opens up a whole new beginning for our countries.

Source of my pain?

I went to the Dr. today to see if my gallbladder is the source of all my pain. She told me that I probably should have it removed. She saw about 4 stones in there. Gross! My problem now...when to have it done. We have FCAT Testing coming up in 2 weeks, can't do it til after that. My spring break is not until the end of April, so I'll probably get it done then. Please wish me 2 months of minimal pain.
Night all!

Scrapin' on the Beach

Yesterday I spent the day scrapbooking at a beach house in Ponte Vedra Beach with 3 of my friends. I brought my dog with me so that I wouldn't have to worry about him home alone all day. The house was on stilts, and right at the ocean front. We started at about 3:00 and scraped until about 12:30 am. I went home, with my dog, and the 3 others stayed the night there. It was so relaxing and peaceful to hear the ocean waves in the background. We had a wonderful time learning new techniques and just gabbing with each other.
I went outside just to take a breather, and looked at the moon. It was spectacular! It was so bright with the moonlight hitting the ocean. Tried to get it on film, but just couldn't do it with my camera. I really wish I could. It was very dark out there and the stars were very visible. We need to do this again...
My dog is a Bichon Frise, and has never been on a beach. We walked down to the beach and the minute he stepped on the sand, he loved it! I brought him down to the water but he wouldn't have any part of it. He was so funny to watch. I think he had a good time, he got to go in and out of the house on the deck that wrapped around the house and just smell the ocean.
