It's nice to learn more about you. I get splitting finger nails, too!

Christmas stresses me out too especially with John's birthday tomorrow (the 11th). Way too much stuff going on!!

firstly, i have been meaning to tell you that your new profile photo, it is new right? is gorgeous! you are a knockout. no wonder the quarterback married you!

for some reason, i imagined you being very petite, you made a comment about pants being too short and i wondered if that meant that you are a tall supermodel and not a lil' midget like me. it is odd how we imagine people to look in our brains.

lastly, i would like to send you a final package, late i might add, and wondered if you would like handspun yarn for a scarf, or a larger amount of handdyed laceweight or worsted weight...and...what color(s) you pick em. if you pick one color and want it different shades, that is fine too. just let me know. the laceweight is 880 yards, the worsted is 220 yards, but i can do more if you need a certain amount. i also have a gorgeous baby alpaca/silk mix worsted weight that i can dye. i would try to eat it, but it would not taste good. would not. so let me know. and i will get cracking. if you see a yarn i have out that you like, just ask...

What is it with splitting nails? I get them too, and have since elementary school.

I agree with the smoking thing too...uck.
