Well technically we still have one more day but I doubt I will be on here except to check the bank acct to see just how much I can spend.. Yeah, have to shop a little before the new year starts, right?? I mean isn’t that a given in this day and age???
No have to check cause in the morning I have to take Max to the vets. Damn my animals they always get some weird thing that keep me running and keeps the vet quite happy. He has some gross bump, growth or whatever on his eyeball so have to get it checked.
From the vet’s I need to hit JC Penney’s to try to find a pair of black dress slacks to wear to the show on Wed night and to Bryce’s graduation ceremony.
Once home it’s pop a cake in the oven , cause Bryce asked me to make him a chocolate cake, plus I need to dice, chop, fry, and whatever else you do to get all the pizza toppings made up ahead of time, plus get the crust going. The party is tomorrow night starting at 8pm and I will be like a wild woman decorating, fixing the table, decorating the cake, chopping , dicing etc plus getting mama up, showered and ready for the day. A busy day but I am sure all well worth it , lots of fun in the evening .
Today hubby and I finally finished up the de-decorating, damn but I have been washing windows for three days now, enough is enough!! They are shiny, clean and the house looks soooooooooooooooooo bare now. It’s amazing at how much of a difference all the deocrations make. I mean prior to them going up, the house looked cluttered to me, now, nope bare. I am sure in a few days it will be back to it’s cluttered look and I will be back to whining about having to clean it up. So for now guess I will just enjoy it as it is.
2007 has been an up and down year over this way, as I am sure the same for everyone. To me I have watched mama’s dementia take over her brain more and more and the difference a year makes is un=real. Such a horrible disease and absolutely nothing I can do to stop it or help her. I am very thankful she is healthy though so I keep focusing on that aspect of her life. Told you before that I always try to find the bright spot in everything, the silver lining so to speak. She is truly my bright spot each and every day.
The year also brought amazing changes in Bryce. From the rebellious know it all kid to the young man about to head off to the Air Force day after tomorrow. He has put us through the worst kind of hell and then turned it around to put so much pride in us it’s crazy when I think about it.
Ashley has turned into quite a young woman also. What with college, her job and her music she is amazing. Can you tell we are proud of those two kids?? Yup we are!!!
The Wii, amazing lil piece of machinery if I do say so myself. It has given hubby and I some sort of life together and we still love it and mmm have gotten extremely competitive at it too. An amazing family game but an amazing game for us. We so look forward to our evenings of bowling.
Friends, yeah this blog, another amazing invention and I am so glad I am a part of the blogging world. I look forward to reading everyone’s blog. I feel your pain, joy and everything in between. I enjoy all the pictures you all post and love watching the little ones grow up via the computer.
I pray 2008 will be just as good to me. I really can’t complain about anything. Oh I try but mmm I am very fortunate and I just have to look around to know that.
So to all my blogging friends out there have a very HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEARS!!! I will catch you all in 2008!!!!
