Happy New Year....

First off, since so many of my readers (two of maybe 4 or 5) didn't know what a butter braid was, I thought I'd link you to a description of their buttery goodness . They're really one of the better fund raiser deals out there.

Well it's the new year, what can I say about it so far? How about it's cold cold cold. We took the boys ice skating today, they had a blast. Isaac fell every two seconds and would hoot and holler with joy each time. I swear that kid did not stop laughing the entire time. Jake also had a great time. I find it humorous that the skating rink is sponsored by a nearby hospital....are they trying to drum up business?

Last night we went to a friend's house, chatted a bit and came home. We all fell asleep before midnight. In fact, Jason and I have been together about twenty-two years and maybe we've stayed up six times. But except for one year (I was in Greece the last part of my senior year in high school) we've been together on New Year's Eve (yeah, yeah, either ooh and aah or barf, it's great being high school sweet hearts!).

So, do I have any resolutions.....yeah...anything creative...no...
lose weight
get the house remodeled
get organized
be a better mom...

blah blah blah
I had ice cream, yelled at the kids and didn't do anything around the house today...so far not doing well on the resolutions...bad me

The kids are excited (and surprisingly so) about our family resolution -- no fast food for the year -- okay, Chipotle, Tokyo Joes are okay because they're relatively healthy and fresh...the main criteria is if it has a drive through (except for Starbucks, do you think I'm insane) then it's a no-go.

I have a ton of pictures to post....but can't seem to find my camera...and I can't find the cord in order to recharge the other camera so I couldn't take pictures of the kids ice skating today...see why "getting organized" is on my list!

But, just in case you think I'm a total slacker....I've been studying daily for my class that starts on the 11th. Rumor has it, that the teacher has a pop quiz the first day of class and I plan on being prepared!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

UGH! That reminds me--I have a quiz on the first day of nursing school! GULP! I better commit the sheet it is on to memory; stat!

Glad you had fun skating. Ohhh! I went to Tokyo Joes once when I was in Denver to see my otolaryngologist! Pretty good--we don't have that in Cheyenne. Starbucks? I could use some coffee right now . . .

Oh my...no fast food? Are you insane? Couldn't you pick something easier like, I don't know quit smoking? :) Good Luck on that...

Happy New Year

Thought of this post when I went by a Chipotle Mexican Grill today that is going in close to us. We'll have to at least give it a try since you consider it a step up from fast food!

Also, I looked at the butter braids, and it makes me wish I had a fundraiser to organize! They look wonderful. Let me know next time you are selling them, I might be tempted.
