Visiting family and computer addiction

I'm in Rocky Mount right now visiting my family. My sister flew in from Idaho with her two daughters so I drove across state with all three of my sons and we're all here in the trailer next door to my parent's house visiting. We'll be here for a week or so.

We hadn't seen my sister's daughter Belle in three years. She's 3 1/2 now. She and my oldest Hunter have been having a great time playing and getting to know each other. Its so cute seeing little kids talk to each other.

We're planning to sew with Mom this next week and I think mom is more excited about it than me or Becca. We're going fabric shopping at Jo Anns tomorrow. I think mom and dad are going to buy Becca a new sewing machine. They bought me a Bernina about 6 months ago which I LOVE! Then a month or so ago mom gave me her new Bernina serger and then got a newer one herself. We never had money growing up and now that my parents have money they're spoiling us and its SO much fun, I think I like being spoiled more as an adult than I would have as a kid.

So here I am, on the internet. Its 10:45 pm, the kids are asleep, my sister is asleep and I'm online. Yes, I am addicted to the internet. Did you know there is a center for internet addiction recovery? Here is a test you can take to see if you're addicted. I scored a 58, which means I am experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. I should consider their full impact on my life. Hmm that is definately something to think about. Although I think most of my internet addiction stems from my lack of real life friends. If I had more real life friends I'd spend more time with them. I have one, but I'm not sure if we're actually friends or we get together for the kids to play. I'll call us friends to make myself feel less lame.

Hi Sarah! I just noticed you had a blog! I really enjoyed reading it...I'm right there with you on lack of real-life friends :( I got to meet fish6mom IRL a few weeks ago, and I'm hoping between the two of us we can drum up some real life friends LOL ...none of my neighbors speak english, and I don't see any other stay at home moms in our apartment complex. My closest thing to a 'friend' here is the uber-friendly wal-mart checkout lady that works late nights when I do my grocery shopping! So I think I'm lamer than you! LOL Anyhow...wanted to let you know I'm nearly done with the cookbook, it's been a zoo here at my folks!
Merry Christmas!
