Happy New Year

Thanks Missie for this tag. Missie's Magical CreationsI want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. My night was uneventful. I just watched tv because hubby had to work at 6am and he was sound asleep. My daughter had a sleepover and I called her at midnight and she was outside yelling and making snow angels.

I woke up this morning and it was -14 below with the wind chill. smileyWind.gif image by dutchtreat

We have another night of  cold weather and then they are talking about it getting into the 50's on Saturday. This is some crazy Illinois weather but I am used to it by now. I have only left my house a few times and that was to let my neighbors 2 dogs out and to play with the 7 cats. They are vacationing in Florida. I wish.

My daughter was at the library over the summer with her friend and someone stole my digital camera out of her friends purse. They found the purse in the boys bathroom. We decided to buy her a digital camera for Christmas. I just downloaded some Christmas decorations of the outside of our house. They are a little blurry but I am going to try to put them in the journal. Copy_of_house.gif image by dutchtreat

I am back to trying to get healthy this year. I didn't make any resolutions because every year I seem to break them. I have noticed a lot of journals this one especially Body of Evidence (I hope you don't mind Erica that I gave you a shout out)mentioning getting healthy and I know they will help me with my struggle. anim0065.gif image by dutchtreatI just have to get myself motivated to move. I know that is a big part of it.   runner8.gif image by dutchtreat 

Here is one of the pictures.

Well, I am going to read some email and pick up my daughter from her girlfriends house in a few minutes.

The house looked beautiful....we did not even do outside lights this year.(a first)
The weather is wickedly cold here, like in the 20's cold!
Thanks for mentioning my journal. We can all do this. We just need to stick together, because it is not gonna be easy and knowing others are feeling the "pain" lol will make it better...Right?

That is a beautiful pic of your house all decorated. Brrrrrr it is freezing in your area. It is here also, windchill makes it feel like 11 degree's outside. Is it spring yet, lol. Happy new year my friend. Rebecca is still playing the Leap Pad you sent her. She loves it. And is learning alot from it. Thank you so much. ((((((hugs))))
