Karen - how cool! Hope you enjoy it! Such a fun new toy, I think...many of the benefits of an iPad without the resentment over the high cost. I got my iPad free from my last employer, but I still think that limits my enjoyment, knowing how expensive it was! :)

I think it is $21 at Target. I heard of it last Christmas, but at the time I thought it was just an elf you put "on the shelf" to watch your kids and remind them to be good because they were reporting back to Santa. Then I watched the special on some network (ABC, maybe?) and there is a story behind it where you name the elf to give it its magical powers then it can go back and forth between your house and the North Pole to report to Santa. Every day you are supposed to move it and maybe even put it in silly situations to show it being "active" when you are sleeping at night. Totally a cute idea but way too much work for me...I am resisting participation.

Yeah I must have read the price wrong or it was on sale when I was at Target because now it's $30. I hadn't seen the movie at that point so I didn't think about getting it. I will probably pick one up. She's already driving me crazy about the tree (we told my dad we'd get it when he was here on the 9th) and presents. This will give her something else to fixate on.

Sorry you have the psych patients back...hope the meds continue to do the trick for you! I started feeling crappy just as I was going to bed last night too...hoping I caught it early enough this time with the zinc that it knocks it out.
