I Blinked…Christmas Is Over!

It seems like I blinked and then Christmas was over. Why does it always take so long to prepare for Christmas and then POOF it’s all over in the blink of an eye?!

I told my girls if they woke me up before 6am Christmas morning that I would not be help responsible for their safety! They were nice and woke me up at 6:05! Even my husband was awake which is a Christmas miracle all on its own! I vaguely remember getting a cup of coffee and sitting on the couch and the next thing I knew they had opened everything! 

My kids enjoyed their presents which consisted mostly of board games and clothes this year. My husband and I agreed that the grill we recently bought was our Christmas present. My daughters bought me a little Elmo figurine and a pretty Snowflake necklace. My mother-in-law bought me a coffee cup that I swear holds 6 cups of coffee! I love it!

My husband gave the family the best present of all and he stopped drinking. He has been sober for 9 days now and I have high hopes that he will continue to stay sober. 

Now it’s on to the New Year, 2010, New Year Resolutions! This year I am giving up blinking for my New Year Resolution! Well that and I am seriously making a resolution to lose 30 pounds! Do you think if I blink that maybe the weight would come off as easy as it did going on?!

Video And Question Of The Week

Feel Good Drinks

Question of the week: Is there a special drink or food item that you like that you can only get around Christmas time?

In Hog Heaven

We hit the mother lode yesterday afternoon. One of my husband’s friends called and asked if we wanted some wild hog that they killed over the weekend. I, being the one who does all the grocery shopping, of course said yes.
We got the meat yesterday. Luckily it was quartered out for us. I don’t think I could have handled looking at the face or anything like that. Obviously I am not a hunter! We cut the meat up this morning in about 3 hours. I think I have 25 meals worth in my freezer now. Most of it is chunk meat for soups, casseroles, stir-frying. We did get 2 meals of tenderloins and 4 meals of boneless chops.

Now I need to go find some pork recipes so the kids don’t complain about eating the same thing over and over again!

“th-th-th-that’s all folks!”
