First finish of 2010 and a giveaway

Got to work and there wasn't anything to do. Left at noon. As I was driving through town I noticed hubby's truck in front of the coffee shop so I called him and asked what he was doing. He said having lunch at Java's. I told him I saw his truck as I passed. So he told me to turn around and have lunch with him. That was very sweet of him. Had a toasted ham and cheese sandwich with a cup of chili.

When I got home I got caught up on blogs and emails. Played a little Facebook. Then I was a good girl again and worked out with the Wii for 30 minutes.

Sat down and watched General Hospital while winding more floss on bobbins.

Tonight was movie night with the boys. I had a Netflix movie sitting here so we watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Justin and Dylan had both seen it a few times before but love the movie. Then guess what happened as soon as the movie ended? I put on the last bead to Halloween Fairy, woohoo!!!!
