Happy Holidays

I hope your holiday was wonderful, as mine was. DH and I went to his dad's Christmas Eve and then to my mom's to spend Christmas Day with her and my brother.
I ate too much, received too many gifts and laughed constantly ! (Sofa King----sorry, inside joke)
Despite DH's layoff, we enjoyed Christmas. Ü

Next holiday, New Year's Eve. We will probably just enjoy it in the comfort of our home, quietly. Probably we will hit the hay well before midnight. Why is it so much more important when you are younger to celebrate the changing year? I'm not THAT old, but it just doesn't seem as appealing to go out in a smoke filled, crowded venue and drink too many drinks and stay up way too late only to wake up mid-afternoon the next day feeling like you've been hit by a Mack truck........ Not my kind of celebration. Sorry.

Call me a wet blanket.....call me a Negative Nancy......whatever.

Maybe I can think of some "goals" for 2009.

1. Think positively, speak positively, live positively
2. see #1

(I thought 2 goals looked better than just one anyway.)

I finally have begun reading the Twilight series......OMG, I'm halfway finished with the first book and I just started last night !
I don't know what it is about that book, but it's hard to put down---it MAKES you want to read it. It's hard to explain. Read it if you want to know.

Adios 2008-----glad you're through with us.
On to 2009-----please be kind to us !!!

It's been a long, long road....

I'm sorry I have been neglecting you for so long. There have been many things going on since I last posted. I will try not to bore you with all the deets.
Hubby has been laid off from work as of today. SO, we will be penny pinching until he gets called back OR he gets something new. Oh Joy. Great timing too! =/

For some fun I will be posting my 24 days of Christmas gifts I have been sent. I was in a swap and I sent 24-ish things to my swap partner and I got sent a box of goodies to unwrap every day until Christmas!
Here is today's gift, a cute little "congratulations" stamp from Studio G.
OK, well it looks like since I had my computer worked on, the pictures I just took aren't working.....I'll have to get DH to see what's going on.....
