Thank you & Happy holidays

First of all, I would like to say thank you to all those who left me a little note after my last entry. Your thoughtful, loving words meant and mean so much to me during this rough time. Thank you.

Well, I am back! Maybe not as recharged as I would like to be, but I am back after a much needed break. I was done with classes and basketball for awhile now and now basketball is starting up again after a much needed seven day break and classes do not start until the 24th. So, now that I am back on campus I have my computer and can update this spiffy little site. I hope you all had a wonderfully happy holiday season and a safe new year. My Christmas was good. It was rough without G-ma there but we made the best of it. Best gift of the year: the complete "Sex and the City" series! I love that show. My mom introduced me to the show about two years ago and I said I wasn't interested. She said "'Sex and the City' is a show that all women should watch. It does a great job of showing how strong a bond between [women] friends is." I finally broke down and agreed to watch the series with my mom. So, this past spring she started renting the series from Blockbuster. About the half way through season 1 I was hooked. (The first three shows were kinda rough, it gets better though.) I admitted to my mom she was right and that began the "Summer of Sex [and the City]."

Over this little break I bought myself a little Christmas gift of a rex rat. Her name is Scout and she is adorible! She is a very docile, friendly rat. She likes to use me as a salt lick after a hard basketball practise and she nibbles but never has she biten anyone. She likes to climb up onto your neck which tickles but its ok cuz she's cute. She also has a habbit of finding which pocket my pump is in. She climbs around in my lap and after a short time she finds something interesting. "That looks like something to be chewed" she thinks as she begins chewing on my pump tubing. I take it away and turn her around but it is vain because she is now interested in that so she bee lines to the same spot. I again try taking it away but she is getting annoyed and she uses her cute little hands now to take back what she believes to be hers. So, now Scout and I are in a tug of war with my pump tubes. I of course win and just keep an eye on her. She's just so cute I can't get mad.

Well, I'm gonna hit the showers now. Talk to you all later.
