I DID IT!!!!
Crazy stuff! This year went by so fast yet so slow!
My original idea was to make an actual resolution list...but I seriously hate the idea of making resolutions...because how many people make them and keep them? Why start out the year setting yourself up to fail? Istn't that the opposite of the purpose of them? So anyway... I was talking to my sister my idea and she sent me a great e-mail with a sort of anti-resolution list... So that is where this idea came from! Thanks Kel!

When we moved into our house, May 2004...we put in all new flooring...carpet in the bedrooms and den. Only to find out that we have a leak...and now...ruined carpet...the sidewalk in the front is cracked so the water runs back into the house...
So now the sidewalk is finally getting fixed...next step...two rooms of carpet...bleh!

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes.
To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We went to Olive Garden for lunch today...
And the waitress knocked my Raspberry Lemonade over and all over me!!!!
All I could do was laugh...I felt so bad for her, though.
I ended up getting my food free and a free dry cleaning if my old khaki's I have had for years...didn't come clean...which they did, so no big deal. LOL!
Then later Charlie got his second bowl of soup and there was a rather long hair in it...HA! Corbin said "I hope that's it for our bad luck!" LOL! So Charlie got his meal free too...
It was an interesting lunch!

My 2(almost 3 year old) calls Santa, HO! HO! Cracks me up!
Which also reminds me of a funny story...
When I was dating my husband, his brother was dating a girl...no one in the family liked her...
She came with his brother Christmas morning to see the family, wearing a Santa baseball hat...across it it is said "Ho! Ho! Ho!"
My husband's other brother came into the room and said "Hey it's Chris and his Ho!...ho hat..." ROFL!! Oh my gosh is was the funniest...saddest...thing ever! We could not believe he said it...even though we had all been thinking it. HA!
Ok...I would be jumping up and down with joy...but...I have some complaints...
First of all this isn't the pic they said they were using...but whatever I still I have a pic in it right?! LOL!
Second...do you see anything odd about this pic? On the left is my pic...on the right is the pic my friend has in the calendar...
They so wonderfully added a new background...which wasn't so bad I guess...but they did a terrible job of it and THEN! They took part of my friend's picture...that is in the same calendar....and cloned it in on my pic! You can see on his neck a spot where they didn't line up the shirt right so there is an odd jagged spot... And the mic stand is oddly misshapen because they had no detail to work with...I guess they figured the average idiot wouldn't see what a poor job they had done. And I wouldn't know they screwed with my pic. I must say I am quite disappointed...
The original pic...

My oldest daughter went to her first birthday party today. She had a blast. There were kids everywhere! The whole theme of the party was snowflakes. It was pretty.
She brought home a little kit to make this bracelet. It's really cute. So I put it together and had to take pics of it. =)

Someday I will learn to bring my camera everywhere I go.(Cuz this pic is BAD!) LOL!
But in my defense it was raining all night so I couldn't bring it! =) heh...
We had a night out and it was great fun!
We went to eat at Red Lobster...then did some shopping.
Then went to Chili's for desert and hot chocolate.
And then watched a movie in the back seat of the van for a little while.
It was nice!
