I have the cutest niece in the world

My cute little niece is coming on a big girl trip on an airplane to visit me in about 10 days.  I'm SUPER excited.  I've planned 17 days worth of activities in our two-and-a-half days together. 

My sister didn't want to tell her funny little daughter about the trip too early, since she would (of course!) be too excited and find it difficult to concentrate at school. 

Somehow she found out she was going to visit Aunt Stephanie and Grandma and Pop, but Aunt Stephanie first.  I like to think that she is a lot like me and a detective at heart.

Today I talked to my sister who told me the niece had a ziploc bag full of her savings.  My sister asked her why she had her money in a baggie, to which she replied,

"This is for when I go visit Aunt Stephanie.  In case she doesn't have enough money.  I can help her out!"

I'm feeling the love!

One fun fact about me...maybe

It's been quite a while since my last blog post. 

There are several reasons:

I started a new position at work around the time I last posted and I lost track of the time.
I've spend WAY less time using this here computer.  I only check my Google reader a couple times a week instead of a couple of times a day.
I recommitted to working out and spend 3 hours a day at the gym, which leaves precious few minutes for blogging.
I wasn't quite sure what I should write for the next item on the list--A fun fact about me.

Ok.  Ok.  One of the above isn't true AT ALL.  And one is the most true.

The most true is that, although blogging may be one of the most narcissistic things to do, do I really think there is a fact that is so "fun" about me that it deserves its own posting?  Seriously? And what if no one else finds it "fun"?  Then I will have posted a "Supposed Fun Fact about Me."  And that's no fun.

The lie above is that I have been working out.  Anyone who believed that is crazy.  Well, maybe not.  I DID recently begin paying money to a gym.  I've sorta shopped for new workout clothes ('cause if you look good, you'll work out).  I've planned on going to the gym on multiple occasions.  And I may even show up on the Memorial Day. 

So, I guess a fun fact about me is that I have a good imagination.  That's what I call my tendency to stretch the truth.  My mom calls it lying.  I like to call it poetic license.

And I tend to take it often.
