New Year, New Beginning

Happy New Year!  I know I have been MIA since Thanksgiving, but it was my choice to be off of this blog and see I still wanted to do it.  Well, I'm back, so I think I do.  I hope you had a great December and spent a lot of time with family and friends.  We did, as well as get the flu, and spend way to much money.  So this month I am cutting back and out.  I need to get on track there. 

I also am making a vow to read more blogs.  I have let that go.  I guess that can be considered my resolution for the new year. 

Foxy has been off basically since the 23rd.  He goes back to work on Wednesday.  He's been working a lot on his 86 Ranger and having fun. 

Daughter has exams next week.  She also goes for her license.  Lots of pressure for her, but not from us.  I hope she does get her license, but it is not the end of the world if she doesn't. 

Son has been practicing basketball and now that we have come into the 21st century and put wifi in, we have not seen him.  He goes into his room, turns on his PS3 and plays with people from all over the world.  We are looking at saving for a laptop too.  Then Daughter will be happy.

Gpa has had some heart problems and is being monitored.  He passed out during his stress test.  We do think it may be medicine driven, but until it is settled, we are watching him closely.

Gma is watching Gpa like a hawk and learning the MP3 player that Gpa gave her.  She isn't sure about this new fangled electronics stuff.

As for me, I am trying to simplify, correct and enjoy.  I received some gift cards for Christmas and spent most of them.  I got a fleece sweater, grey mock turtleneck shirt, earrings, pj pants and that was just with two small gift cards.  This week, the goal is to get the holiday decorations back in the boxes.    What is your goal for this week?


  1. You're so efficient to get out and use your gift cards already. I tend to hang on to them for far too long!

    It sounds like everyone in the fam is enjoying life!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Welcome back. Breaks are good.

  3. Glad you are back! You were missed. Christmas was great. My house became a war zone with Nerf guns and all sorts of bullets flying every where. I still haven't spent my gift cards but I have taken down and put away Christmas. I have also made all of the returns and have gift cards for those. And I cleaned out the boys closets and clothes. I think I'm off to a great start!

  4. It's good to hear from you again. I'm hoping to get the tree down this week!

  5. Welcome back momma! Sometimes we need to step back and evaluate things and put our families first.
    I hope Gpa is ok!!

  6. I decided to make my own decorations this year and was so embarrassed by my feeble attempts that I've packed them away as soon as Santa Claus was out of the door. Happy New Year and good luck to your daughter with her license!
