Well they are here and things are gearing up (actually in slow motion right now but it’ll be kickin’ up here at the DiSanto house after the 16th)! Icannot tell you how anxious I am (we are) to see everybody home for the holidays. Although it will be quite busy, that’s what makes it fun. I must admit though that I’m quite displeased with ya’ll that haven’t put anything on this page in quite sometime! You’d think you were busy or something c’mon you people, PRO-JECT! Kam just brought home a 10 week perfect attendance award, and got a 100+ on his spelling test today,he was very proud.

Well…when do we think little Ms. D will enter into this world? What will she look like? (I placed a baby picture of Kay to compare) I know we are all excited to once again have a baby in our family and Kay C.- we all wish you and Bob the best.
Well today is mom and dad’s special day so give them a call and wish them well……
By now I’m sure most have read there e-mail but just in case I’m posting it here (this is the kind of news we need to share).
“I am getting married. That’s right…..I know it’s probably a shock to most
but Karl and I will be getting married on January 1, 2003 at 3pm in my
living room. Uncle Eddie is agreed to come over and do the honors for us.
It will be me and my three kids, Mom and Dad, Karl and his three kids and his
parents and if anyone of you want to join us you are more than welcome to.
We will also have a reception sometime in February as soon as I have time to
book one. Hopefully at Club 86 with just hors’ derves (spelling) and cocktails.
And on the 1st it’s just the ceremony and maybe something afterwards. Not
So that is my exciting news. The kids and I and Karl are very happy. So if
you can join us we would love it and if you can’t I know you’lll be there in
Well another Tuesday weigh in- this time 2.6 for a total of 20.8 in 5 weeks, this I can live with.
Speaking of living or in this case dying- my neighbors found their daughter dead tonight. We don’t know why. We know she was on medication, we know she drank (she was an alcoholic) but we don’t know why. I didn’t know this lady well and my sorrow is more for the fact that one day you are here and the next gone. And when it is over- there is no time to make amends or make that call to say hi, or share good news or say “I love you”. In our busy worlds we let the important things go by…and that is sad. So wrapped up in our own worlds, with our issues, and our beliefs, we don’t take the few minutes necessary to do the right things, with or for the right people. We don’t forgive and heal we stay stuck and we view the world through lenses clouded with mistrust and anger and we lose sight that the world is beautiful. So tomorrow if you should die- what unfinished business do you have?
Well, it’s official. Delaney’s Baptism has been set up for Saturday, December 28th @ 3:00pm. This should accommidate everyone including Erin. Sorry Susie, I know that this screwed up Kameron’s Birthday, but unfortunately I was trying to make it so everyone from out of town would be here. I’m actually excited because I will get to see my Sweet Boy that day. If not, who knows if we would have made it back to Clyde. We’ll provide directions and details at a later day (probably Christmas). Make sure you mark your calendars!! Thanks, Kay
Well I did- I weighed in and lost .8 this week. This after eating only green things and exercising 45-60 minutes a day. What’s up with that? Then a read the following article- after I felt better and learned I could have ice cream one day per week!
To all of you who have children, I would really like it if you could get me a list of what they would like from Christmas.
I do not have a lot of time this year to do my shopping, therefore, the sooner I get the lists the better.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and you can just forward the list on to me. I look forward to hearing from you.
With winter on the way (and for some already here), I thought this article could be helpful. Some of this I did not know… some of you smarter car people may already know though. Article from December 2002 Better Homes and Gardens:
Cold-running care to keep your car running all season long
Most drivers fail to realize how hard winter is on their trusty automobiles. Here are a few pointers to keep things like your engine and chassis in top form, and your concentration where it belongs–on the road…
It’s wonderful to see so many entires- like Christmas morning (almost).
Well once again today was weight watchers day- another 5.2 for a total of 17.4 pounds. My newest thing is exercise (which isn’t all that bad). I even found that I can jog a little. The biggest problem is the foot I broke- it swells but I’m doing 45 minutes a day of bike and walk/jogging (put on some funky music and move this white body). I’ve been thinking lately and wondering why I ever got out of shape- how dumb because now you have to work like hell to get it back. I’m sure once I do I’ll be excited but now I just have to get through the Holidays.
For anyone interested, there is a cool site to help calculate points: Dottie’s weight loss zone. Check it out!
Till next week…eat less…move more!
Major deadlines here, along with major company downsizing! I could be in danger, but I think I’ll be okay. Some people are not happy with our department because it’s taken us so long to produce training, but they do not understand how long it takes. We’ve been working our butts off, trying to prove ourselves (or rather our department’s worth). If we don’t do this, all of us could lose our jobs and I’m not willing to go down like that. Right now I’ve been trying to light a few fires under a few people’s butts, and it was funny because the other day we had a little meeting and I started to get on my boss’s and another co-worker’s nerves because I was pushing so hard. Our dept. boss (over my boss), came and told me that she respected the way that I was keeping everyone on track and that she thinks I’m a lot like her! She says that she knows I’ll go far in this company.
This is a recipe I found on the internet and modified a little. It’s excellent and is now my favorite rice recipe, next to David’s Arroz con Gondules (recipe coming soon).
2 cups of rice
3 cups water
4 Tbsp. of oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of mushrooms
4 tsp. of soy sauce
3 Tbsp. of butter
Start by making the white rice. Heat up the 3 cups of water and add the salt and 4 Tbsp. of oil (which makes the rice soft and fluffy) and salt. Bring to a boil and then add the rice, stirring regularly to avoid excessive sticking. When all the water has evaporated cover with a tight fitting lid and simmer in very low heat. Wait 15 minutes and remove lid, stir, and cover again. In 5 minutes the rice should be firm but tender inside. If necessary, cover and leave another 5 minutes on very low heat.
Slice the mushrooms. Sauté all the remaining ingredients (except the rice) using the butter. Adjust salt to taste. Add four cups of cooked white rice and mix all the ingredients. Fluff the rice using a fork. Serve hot.

I would just like to let you all know that I made Erin’s recipe for fiesta lasagna last night (it is in our cookbooks) and it was very very good! It is like lasagna, but it is Mexican style, so instead of red sauce, you have salsa, instead of mozzarella, you have cheddar, instead of noodles, you have tortillas.
It was very good and I recommend that you all try it!
