I FINALLY sold my motorcycle! I bought a brand new 2005 Yamaha VStar 4 years ago and have not ridden it in 2 years. I loved that bike but it was time for it to go. I'm way too afraid to ride it in traffic here and Corey has no interest in ever attempting to ride a motorcycle again so it's been sitting in a consignment shop for the last 6 months and someone finally took it off my hands. Well I couldn't just let all that money go into savings! Duh, I had to buy something that I'd been wanting for 2 or 3 months. I really had been wanting this new dslr for a while so I finally got it and love it. I wish I were a really amazing photographer but I think it'll be a while. Like after some classes to find out what all the buttons are for.
We also got our Christmas tree. I love having my own tree! I started out the season trying to be all cute and decorative but that ambition quickly died away and now I'm regretting my holiday frenzy. I started making Christmas suckers but discovered molds for chocolate covered pretzels and got real excited about that. I ended up making over 100 and just finished wrapping them up. I left them out unwrapped for a few days hoping that Corey would eat the majority of them so I wouldn't have to do much else but I made myself just finish it up and now I will not be doing anything creative or cute for the rest of the year.
