New Year’s Eve 2008

Wow  another year gone – how time flies when you are having fun. 

Seven years ago today my mom passed away.  Gosh do I ever miss her, she was such a beautiful kind woman and always so upbeat.  I can honestly say I only remember one person she did not care for and that was a caregiver that came into our home to take care of her while I was at work.  She refused to call her by name, she called her that girl.  Mom I miss you so much.

We had a beautiful Christmas with Amanda, Tim and Joshua this year.  We went to their home on Christmas Eve and attended church in the city.  It was a nice service and very friendly people.  Christmas morning we were up around 8 and opened presents – we received loads of nice stuff and yes I did get my purse.  Santa is so good.  We had a nice dinner and a very enjoyable day.  We did miss our other daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters in South Carolina but got to talk to them on the phone.  Next year we will feel the same way about Amanda and family. 

This week has been pretty laid back – we have walked, shopped and been doing our WII Fit.  On some of the exercises I have improved greatly – others I am just not able to get doing more than one thing at once.  Yikes – feel like a little child again. 

Today is New Years Eve and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year – hope next year will find you healthy and happy.  We will spend the New Year with Amanda, Tim, and Josh with a nice dinner and a few drinks.  Tommorow we will change our eating habits and start loosing weight.  I told Tim I wanted to wear a bikini next summer – he just laughs at me – I wouldn’t wear one when I weighed 95 pounds soaking wet. 

God Bless you all and have a wonderful New Year.
