New Years Eve

and time for some football. I really slept late today so I am getting a late start on things. I have a little work to do with my school stuff but after that - FOOTBALL!!! Go Sooners!

Hump Day

You know, that is the perfect description of a Wednesday! Did some shopping today. Finally got the new lighting for the dining room, kitchen table and entry way. We still can't decide what to do in the actual kitchen. Darn those vaulted ceilings! Did some grocery shopping before the rain/sleet hit, made some yummy homemade nachos and tacos and am now settling in for the night. Family made it home to Oklahoma despite the winter weather there. I love having my family visit and hate it when they leave! I will post a couple of pictures that you will probably see in next years newsletter. I think we are playing games tonight once I see which child wins the argument!

New Layout

Boy this color is bright and hard to see but it is the only New Years background I liked. I will have to change it in a few days anyway. I like the color combination but it is hard to read. I finally managed to get the tickers up and working. They start on New Years Day so I will try my best to keep up with those as well. Off to bed with my new Steve Berry book!

Blog losing to Facebook!

I started using Facebook and have been neglecting my blog. I am going to try to do both. I changed the layout to V-day because I really couldn't find a cute New Years or Winter layout. I will keep looking. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. What did everyone get? My favorite gift was having some of my family here from Oklahoma to share Christmas with. They left this morning - always sad. My dd turned 20 on Christmas, no longer a teenager! We don't have any plans for New Years, except to watch some football. I plan to stitch some before the semester starts back up. I officially was accepted to the PhD program at GSU this fall. I plan to take at least two classes this spring. I can't enroll until the first day of classes though which makes finding classes a challenge. Ashley has 4 classes this spring and we will still be able to carpool at least one of the two days we go to GPC. The New Year will bring a start to a healthier New Year. We are converting our study into a workout/reading room with a bike and treadmill. The weights are going to stay in the garage for now. I plan to update my tickers and add one for the family as a whole. This is now a family effort. Not sure which program we are going to follow but I know what works for me so we may keep it or try something new. I did get the Biggest Loser Wii Workout so I am excited about that. Well, off to do some returns and get new lighting for the kitchen - after that, with the exception of the flooring, the kitchen will officially be finished!!!
