Thursdays list

Okay...I think that Blogger is working again....it's been a crazy start to the new year...
With promises of stories of our New Year's Eve to come....my list of smiles include some of the goings on from that evening:
Staying up way too late, pretending we were way younger than we are, playing drinking games
Christmas with the nephews- their smiles are priceless when they open the things that I know that they really wanted
Watching them enjoy the inflatable go carts bought to go with the Wii- they dragged those things around the whole house- they were their seats for the whole weekend
Spending Sunday as part of hubby's family and enjoying the talks that were going on- without drama
Midlife crisis this week during a lunch with hubby- and him completely placating me and what I want to do (more coming on this one)
A new year at work- brand new year, brand new opportunities
Winning a contest at work- so nice to be recognized for working my butt off..
Being on the treadmill several days this week (finally)
Processing a ton of vegetables to freeze
yummy dinner tonight with hubby
Leaving work early today because I needed to go to the grocery store (how insane is it that I had to take time off to go to the grocery store)
A weekend...to myself with my hubby doing nothing....except for cooking and cleaning..but no where to go other than here.
A new focus for the year...haven't figured out yet what that might be- but aren't the possibilities exciting?

By the way- one of the most honest, true-to-herself, bloggers is hosting a contest- she is looking for healthy recipes for her to create....her tastes are similar to mine- so you should check her out and pass along any recipes you have to her (and me too while your at it...we can all eat healthier)...Hed Above Water

Also- Bloggie nominations are going on right now- read here: great blog and definitely worth voting for if you are into that: Isaiah's Eyes

Stories abound from our New Year's and a crazy week this week....blogger seems to be working again so hopefully I will be back with those soon....I am thinking Saturday morning with a cup of coffee.....hugs to you all!
