It's a New Year!!

2009 went so fast and I am sure, like many other people, I will be stuck writing it on checks for the next few weeks.

This New Years Eve was pretty low key. The boys were at their dad this year and Chris was actually off of work, well he worked until 6 but was off that night. That one night is just not what it used to be. With all the drunk drivers out on the road and then we still have to wake up with a toddler the next morning. So, we stayed home! It was WONDERFUL! It was a football evening!

Since then we have not done a whole lot either. New Years Day Chris was off all day so we literally sat and watched football all day long. I did get my fire in the fireplace... all day long. But I will still freezing!! ICK, I am ready for some spring temperatures. Chris made an early dinner that night. He HAD to have his black eyed peas, greens and country ham. I did eat some of the ham but the rest of it... FORGET IT!

The boys come home today and we start back into the school routine on Wednesday with them. Kennedi actually starts back on Tuesday because she is in a different county. I am not looking forward to the school routine again. I am so ready for school to be over and have this year done! I guess we are now about halfway there!! YAY! WE CAN DO IT!

So that is the update of the new year... so far. Not a lot going on but the relaxation has been great! Now if that can continue through the year and the stress stay away... YEAH RIGHT!!

Sounds like your year wrapped up fabulously! What a wonderful way to spend the holiday :)

I have to say, though, that I'm the opposite of you - I am so very ready for the school year to start up again! My kiddos need that structure to keep their sanity :)

Happy New Year :)

I love quiet NYE at home! I think it's the sweetest way to ring in a new year!

We start back to school on Tuesday. (My daughter is in 7th grade, and I'm a preschool teacher.) As much as I LOVE being off from school, I do love to go back...the routine keeps me moving forward.
