February events & information:
* Did I watch or follow any of the 2006 Winter Olympics during the month of February? If so, what were my favorite events?
I watched some olympic events, I didn’t manage to see the opening or closing ceremonies, I always enjoy the figure skating and I really was interested in the new snowboard cross, an interesting even and action packed, I like speed skating too, so I caught a few events, we didn’t watch them with as much attention because they weren’t in the US this year.
What books and/or magazines did I read this month?
I read my March CK
I am reading Raising Cain- protecting the emotional lives of boys I am about ½ way through it. I need a prespective on J, and I want to know more about all the guys in my life Steven included. I want to beable to communicate better and make better judgements based on learing more about guys!
I bought Rachel Rays new cooking magazine, a nice magazine- but later heard a local food critic’s review on the radio of her new book, and the gal said she was all about the money and only turned on nice when the camera was rolling?? What is up with that.
I am re-reading the little red book of sales by Geoffry Gitmore , interesting and informative for my businesss.
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month?
We rented Bill and Ted’s excelent adventure what a crack up. Enjoyed it fully and the kids thought it was hillariously funny too, with Keneau Reeves and Bill England I never saw it when I was in high school, but it is great.
T.v mostly the news and olympics. Music videos

We have a very busy feb. at our house, I start off the month on ground hogs day with my birthday- I had a great time shopping and lunching with a friend that day.

Then we have Hh ‘s birthday on the 21st, we made a cake and special dinner for her on the Sunday before, she got a new bedroom set and just loves it, mostly purple and a cool canopy thing, and little gypsy type lights, she got jewlery and a new lamb for her collection.
Her and S, worked so hard on her science fair project, she won a coveted place at the district level, so then we will see if she moves on up to state?

She got a science fait medal and is overjoyed with it, all her hard work paid off.
