Company Girl Coffee 01.09.09

So I think I understand this now
...on Company Girl Coffee days, we all write little blogs to the Company Girls and read one another's? Did I get that correct?? :) (Last time I just did the Mr. Linky thing and felt very confused (yet thrilled) afterward when tons of people commented on my blog.) [PS to all you readers who have no idea who I'm talking to or what I'm talking about, click the "I'm a Company Girl" link to the right.]

Today Dave and I (and our pups) are driving to Charlotte for our third Christmas. Yes, that's right. Third Christmas. I must admit that my decorations are not put away in my house...I didn't feel the urge to do it when I knew I wasn't done celebrating yet. Zero Company Girl points for me. :( Dave and I spent Christmas with my family in Indiana, then his dad, step-mom, and granny came to visit us last weekend, and now we're going to see his mom and step-dad and have Christmas with them this weekend. (Actually, his dad and step-mom get to see us again since they all live in/near Charlotte...lucky ducks. :) ) Nothing much exciting has been going on lately, other than nightly entertainment with our new Wii and Wii Fit. (Whoo hoo for Christmas presents!!)

If you haven't tried the Wii Fit, you definitely should. I love it. I've read in magazines so many times to keep my core tight and maintain my balance when doing exercises, and I've always assumed I was fairly good at it. Wii Fit quickly clarified the situation for me. My little red "center of gravity" is pretty shaky at times. And then when I see it wiggling, it makes me giggle. Which messes up my "tight core" (because my stomach is shaking) and then pretty soon the little red "center of gravity" is going CRAZY all over the screen. It's pretty entertaining. Find a friend with a Wii Fit or have your in-laws surprise you with one like I'll be glad you did. :)

My points for Company Girls didn't go too well this week...I got zero. :( I already mentioned the Christmas decorations...then I'd already super-duper cleaned the toilets this past weekend...then last night I didn't have time for the utensils. I'm not sure what else I'm forgetting, but the bottom line is that I pretty much failed miserably. Next week is a new week, though, right???

Alright well not much else to say right now. I hope everyone is having a wonderfully splendid day.
God bless.


  1. Don't feel bad...I didn't get any of the things done either....I STARTED the menu one...I got as far as writing done the categories....but I think it's a really good idea so hopefully I'll have time this wknd to follow through. Happy 3rd Christmas!

  2. I'm so jealous. I got a Wii for Christmas, but my next game purchase is going to be the Wii Fit. I really want to try it! Don't you just love the Wii, though? I got the little adapter to hook us up to the Internet. Way cool!

  3. There is always another week.

    I managed to do most of the things this week, but last month I did miserably all month. But, that's okay. We'll get there.

  4. Anytime you choose to spend time with family, it's well worth not getting points. From Christmas to after New Year's Day we spent 9 nights in 3 different beds - and spent time with 30 or so family members over those 9 days. I didn't even read blogs those days, let alone try to get points. It was just so much fun to see everybody that the points paled in comparison.

    Can't do that all the time or the house would be a mess, but you can catch up when you get back.

    Have fun!

    Oh, and by the way, you got the Company Girl Coffee thing figured out. See you next week.

  5. Failure, shmailure. To be perfectly honest, there are some weeks that I am pretty hard pressed to do my OWN small things. Plus, I wouldn't feel like taking down the decorations until I was done celebrating either.

    I'm so glad you got the link figured out! It makes it really fun to go visit the Company's good for me to get "out" of the house!

  6. I love my Wii Fit too! Everyone thinks it's funny that my COG is to the right because I have always carried my children on my left hip. I'm working on straigtening out though! My kids love the balance games too. It's fun to watch them. It's definitely something we do as a family. : )

    You're not a failure for not getting the small things done. I'm sure you did a thousand other small things during the week that are building your own little Home Sanctuary.


  7. Yup, next week is a new week. I got 0 pts for the toilet one too. Hubby just cleaned them a few days before. Oh well... My sister's boyfriend has the wii fit and it's so much fun. Probably more fun if I wasn't pregnant. =p

  8. Believe me, I've had plenty of "zero" Home Sanctuary weeks!! That's okay.
    Have fun with your Fit!

  9. Oh, my first time joining the Company Girl Coffee I to linked to the carnival not knowing what I was doing.

    This year we bought an Outdoor Challenge to go with our Wii. It is a dance pad, but with challenges like mine cart riding and climbing a waterfall. You can really sweat with this one.
