I think most people by now are focused on 2006, the future and what they are going to work on. Me? Honestly, I can’t believe it’s next year already. I told my husband I’m going to use my work calendar for homelife too — I’m hoping this helps me not do so much double-booking and forgetting. Could get messy. Anyway … I’m just not ready. I still have photos in one of my cameras and Christmas boxes stacked sky high. I did start rearranging the living room — and that’s kind of a new year thing to do. Today was a bit crazy — as you probably know. Did sneak the boys away for a final hurah to see Cheaper By The Dozen — cute. Should go to bed — so I can rise and shine, read my scrippers [Taft's term], exercise and be showered and ready to get kids off to school [Thank Heavens.] But .. I am going to stay up just a little longer and blog a list of a dozen holiday highlights in no particular order [tell me you're not surprised!]
5. Cleaning out the toy room. Boys made me give away some favorites too. So glad I can take photos — nicest old lady made these for me when we lived in Chicago — they’ve survived the church bag with all four boys!
7. Celebrating 16 years married to this great guy [would do it again] we went on a date to Seattle for some downtown meandering. Cougar and Hillary [brother and wife] were married the day before us, seven years later — they came along — some of my most favorite people in one of my most favorite places!
9. Pedicures with Mom. Got a little creative with my toes — something I’m working on for my creativity workshop at BPS — don’t miss it. If nothing else, you’ll get a close up on these piggies.
10. Quick but FUN visit with Kathy and the girls at Apropos. Cool stamp and scrapbook shop in Spokane [Ali is coming in March -- and I'm so signed up]
A bit random — but OH, the memories.
OK .. and my New Year’s resolution — figure out how to make a new banner for my blog! Anyone?
Thanks for reading, and good-night!
