Not sure if anybody is still checking here...

I've been thinking about blogging quite a bit lately, but alas, just haven't gotten to it.

So here's a few small nutshell items for those who might pop by.

1) I didn't get the job (see below). But the guy who did (he came from Calgary) is great - we get along well, and he is helping me re-write my job description which will include a new title and raise in pay. So not all is lost.

2) Had a great trip to Florida for my conference back in November. Here's a pick of me, DW, and a couple friends with our rental car (and yes, it's a convertible):

3) I sent out my SS gift, but with this being my first time, I don't think I was secretive enough, or included enough -- I meant to send through a card, but forgot :-( I hope my giftee does enjoy the things I sent though.

4) DD was in her first ever Christmas concert recently for her pre-school. Isn't she adorable (she's in the middle in the plaid skirt)?

And not to be outdone, here is DS (who was observing the concert):

5) I had a good TV week last week. Nick and Starr won TAR. Nico won SYTYCD Canada. Then Bob wins Survivor. And then Michelle wins The Biggest Loser. That's an unprecedented 4/4 in reality series for people I wanted to win. Yay!

6) Speaking of TV, LOST starts soon. Woot!

7) There is way too much chocolate flowing into our office lately for the holidays. Wait, let me correct that. There is never too much chocolate, but there is lots of it around here.

8) I purchased some shoes the other day from Love 'em, and got a good deal on 'em. Any other good online retailers that you know of?

9) Just celebrated my 5-yr match with my Little Brother. He's in high-school now. *sniffle* It's incredible how quickly they grow up. *sniffle*

10) We're giving a lot of gifts (and asking others to "give" to us) charitable donations this year. One of our favourites is, where you can buy everything from a pig for a family in Mozambique to the full immunization for a community in Bolivia. I love it!
