Happy New Year My Friends……
Happy New Year to all my friends……I cannot believe it is all ready 2008. We were able to accomplish quite a bit over the past few days.
I did get caught online……I know….but in my defense….much was done. I ran down the list on my friend Elaine’s comment…..so you will see I was a little busy. I would put it here but it makes me tired reading it again……:-).
We were naughty this year…..We gathered outside and set off the black cat fire crackers…..along with quite a few others on our street. We did warn the neighbor across the street….LOL.
The kids and I decided to sit and play a game of Phase 10. This particular one is played with dice. We lost my husband somewhere around 1’ish I think. His snoring kept the kids quite entertained. I cut the game short and was finally able to usher everyone into bed….or so I thought. Apparently my daughter is currently up at this moment. She is doing her devotions so I gave her some leeway.
While we were sitting here laughing at Daddy’s trumpeting snores…….Imagine, if you will, an elephant blowing forth from it’s trunk but in a lower key…..between the laughing they were also cringing….one of the boys asked me if I had made a “new year’s revolution.” I just smiled and asked if he meant revolution or resolution……I was told it was too late to be that picky…LOL.
My reply to his question was a simple “not really.” I do have some things I wish to get accomplished and one item that I am still looking into….but not any type of real resolution. Apparently my son’s and daughter have made resolutions. Our church has passed out the new Bible reading program for 2008. Their major goal is to read the Bible through in a year. They asked how to best accomplish this task.
We have agreed that we will read together as a family. They were greatly relieved over this since I can actually pronounce some of those names in the so and so begat so and so…….:-).
I was a little surprised at what they had chosen as resolutions for the upcoming year. My youngest son said his goal is to learn how to have better/his own personal devotions. He became teary eyed and said “He really wants to get closer to God.” He has a few other goals in mind…..like mastering an “Ollie” with out busting his face or his bum. I can see where that could be advantageous….I am forbidden to even look at a skateboard let alone get on one…….LOL.
My older son’s was of course reading the Bible through in a year. He too would like to master an “Ollie” and before anyone asks……I really am clueless on what an ollie actually is….My only knowledge of an ollie is that it is skateboard related…….skateboards and roller blades are supposed to be off limits to my use.
When you end up in a cast on both legs….for some reason people want to assume you have issues….with balance and possibly even grace. Sooooo….it was only 5 casts. One leg is behind….I just can’t remember which leg.
It’s not that I am actually clumsy…..I’ve just had my share of accidents….of course we all know they weren’t my fault…..LOL.
My daughter would like to have her novel finished….as in written and edited. I have no doubt that she will be able to accomplish this task.
I can’t take it any more…..I have all ready removed his shoes and tried to get him back to the bedroom to no avail…..I guess hubby gets the couch tonight….:-)
I’m closing the bedroom door…….Have a wonderful January 1st my friends.
