Well here it is, the final day of 2008. For me time has flown so fast and I can not believe that it is time to say goodbye to another year.
Christmas was great at our house. We had quite a small present accumulation and that worked out pretty well for all. Angel loved getting Artist Sketch pads, large ones. I think that is the present that she showed the most surprise and appreciation for. Pilot loved the Expeditor Truck, he picked it out so he knew he was getting it. The only thing he said was that even though it is exactly what he wanted, he was disappointed in it not being a surprise. I know what he means.
Hubby loved getting four pair of jeans, as his old ones were pretty well goners. He also got a new wallet, that we hope will wear well and last at least a month or two. Hubby is very hard on wallets, he likes to carry the kitchen sink in them and boy does that put a lot of wear and tear on them. I loved the Husky Puppy Build-A-Bear the family got me. She is dressed like an angel and is so adorable! Thanks to our parents for the money's they gave us. This has helped us tremendously in more ways than you can imagine.
Hubby is back to work after a knee injury he had in July. He finally went back December first. I miss having him here, but they need him at work and we need the income. His knee has been really sore as of late again, and so he is going to the doctor on Monday to have it checked. I am hoping all is well and it is still healing.
Everyone else is doing fine in the health department. We have our issues but nothing exciting.
So with Hubby on call for tonight, we don't know if he will be with us for our family New Year's Eve Party. We will be sad if he is called into work, but that is the way it goes. Other wise we will be eating, watching dvd's and playing games.
I think we have done quite well weight wise during the holidays. No one has complained about gaining extra pounds, even me! This is wonderful for all of us.
We still have a ton of snow and I wonder if our neighborhood streets will ever be cleared. By the time the plows came in here, the snow was packed and frozen on the roads. There are a few spots where you can see the asphalt. It has been so cold that the snow and ice have not been able to melt and if it does melt it just stays put and refreezes. Our driveway basically has the same problem. As it melts it fills in the pad and causes slipping problems for us older folks.
We will survive, it is only winter. In just over a month, Phil (the groundhog) will come out on my birthday and announce to world that is it spring! At least that's what I hope he will say.
See ya later!
