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?!

Question Of The Week

Question of the week: What special traditions do you have to ring in a New Year?

In my family we always eat lentils at midnight. As a matter of fact I have my lentils cooking in my crockpot even as we speak. It is supposed to bring you good luck in the new year.

My husbands family likes to have black eyed peas for good luck and cooked greens for wealth. I can’t stand either one of these so we stick with my tradition!
