Falling behind.......

Boy where does the time go? Seems just like I posted yesterday......All that time in between doesn't seem like all that long!

Since the last time I wrote...We have had at least 3 feet a snow drop on us in the past few days. It really sucks! I don't drive in the winter,so I don't go out very often. Sitting in here really starts to get to you after awhile. I can only do so much cleaning before that gets sickening. But soon we will start snow shoeing and sledding and all that winter has to offer way up here. I do have to admit,the snow does add to the Christmasy feel.

Speaking of Christmasy feeling....Christmas has broke open here at the Mihelich home and I love it! I think this is my favorite time of year. My favorite part is sitting here with just the twinkling of the lights and the fireplace going....

What are you favorite parts of Christmas?

Lia Sophia

Last Thursday I got together with some friends for a girls night. We talked jewlery and had a few snacks,played a few games of Blingo and some even won free jewlery. So....I had a few orders leaving my party and managed to get a few more outside orders.....I got sooo much free jewlery!!! I cannot wait to see it all. I looked that book over and over. I am pretty sure I know it all by heart,that is how many times I looked at it! It took me 3 days to finally figure out what I want,then at the last minute, I found that I could get more free stuff....Back to the drawing board!!!! I am so excited for it all to be here!!!!! I will have to post pictures when my treasures come in!!!!

Weekend Fun

Finally a weekend out of town,no kids to worry about,just me and some really close friends.....Oh and....The Dallas Cowboys!!!!! Margarita's and real malls! Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Even though the Cowboys lost to the Packers and out friends are all Packer fans,we had the perfect weekend! The weather was beautiful. No snow pants this year! There were 10 of us this year and it was just a great time. I really am greatful for all of those friends that I have. It is really nice to spend some time with them! Just wish we could do this more often!

Just random thoughts.....

Today was a good day!!! I reordered some makeup from Bare Minerals...I just love that stuff. I tend to go over board though and buy way too much,but they have such nice eye shadows!!! So darn excited for it all to come in!

Not much else is going on here in the Mihelich house. Just getting ready for winter here. The weather has been so nice, I hate to think about snow coming.I did get a few last minute things done in the yard to prepare for spring. Got some bulbs planted and some plants moved around. I can't wait to see what next spring brings in my gardens. Got all the house cleared of clutter and changed out a few more things in preparation for Christmas time.

As for the Baby news...Daymen and Steph got to here the heartbeat last week....160 beats....So any thoughts on what its going to be!? I am getting more excited as the days go by. Although, the worrying is still there to put a damper on my excitement. I hope in time the worrying will fade and the enjoying will begin!!!

Well, until the next time....Thanks to all the veterans out there...Thanks for all you have done and continue to do for our country!!!

Halloween 09

Maybe it was the weather, or maybe it was the sickness going around...But Halloween was different this year. We bought like $50 in candy and we hardly had any Trick or Treaters this year. As we walked the streets where we tot there were not as many lights on this year. My kids didn't want to go out this year,but of course we made them!!! They had fun once we got going,but their hearts just weren't in it this year.

Wonder how everyone else did!?

Boy Time Flies!!!

Its been a few months since I last saw ya!!! And boy have I been busy! I figured tonight I had better get back into the swing of things and start doing things that I want to do...Not just those pesky things that I need to do! So here I am.....

While I was away, I redid almost the whole upstairs and changed a few things out downstairs. I still have many more things on my to do list. But its dwindling down just in time for the next list to be published!!!! I FINALLY got my basement cleared out. It has taken me 3 weeks and counting to remove all that I didn't need in there. I even painted a wall down there.....

In the last few weeks I found out that as of May 2010 I will become a grandma! I am so not ready for that chapter in my life. My son is only 17....Heck, I am only 35!!! Boy talk about mixed emotions there...They are so not ready for this and I don't know if they ever will be. I sure was not happy like grandparents are supposed to be when they find out that there babies are going to have babies...Right now that is hard for me,because I know what it is like to be 17 and have this baby that you have no idea what to do with....I was there,living on my own,my husband not living with me because of school....I know all those feeling creep up on you and you don't know where to turn. I did have my family though,my parents were there for me...And that is what I promised both of them....I love them dearly and I know they need us more than ever right now...... Then there is that part of me that is growing more excited as the days grow closer...I wonder what its going to be,how much will she weigh, how much hair will he have.....I have a funny feeling he or she will be quite spoiled!!!

While I was gone for these past few months...Janets day came and went. And I sat here remembering it like it was just yesterday that she passed away. I don't think a day goes passed that something doesn't remind me of her. Boy, I sure could have used her advice on my news about being a grandma!!! And boy do I miss her. Tonight while searching peoples blogs I came acrossed this recipe for a Chicken Salad....And like it was yesterday, a vision of us sitting around her table at Stitch and Bitch came into my head. I could smell the smell of her house.....Seems I could almost taste that salad. I could hear her silly laugh.....Just seeing that recipe brought me to tears....A little sad,but I think more for those happy moments that I do remember....

Well, I will be here more often. Enjoying this time here.....Don't be a stranger leave me a note!!!!

Finding time

Finding time in a day for all the things I want to do is becoming a challenge. It seems like the days are just flying by. I am trying to come on here more and write about what is going on in my life. Just incase someone out there stumbles across my spot on the web.

This weekend was supposed to be about relaxing and spending time with friends and family. And ya know...That is what it was. I even had a chance to meet some new folks. That is the best part about camping. You find new people at the camp grounds.Some local and some from far away.

In every camping trip, I learn something new. I get to see different things that are around me. Unfortunetly,this weekend I had the opportunity to watch an older gentleman fight for his life as first responders and medical staff tried to revive him. Learning,later that evening that he had finally passed on. The rest of the evening I just couldn't help but think about the old man laying there on the ground as the people pushed down on his chest,breathing in one more breath of hope.....As his family sat in the background drinking more alcohol. I should have just turned around on my walk when I came to him laying on the ground with people surounding him,because I just haven't been the same. Just haven't felt the same thinking that the family that he was there with sat there all that night....Drinking and most of the next day.

I know some people greive in different ways,but for me...Thinking of him being alone on that ride to the hospital,and alone in that hospital....Knowing that no one was waiting to hear the news in the waiting room. It has been with me since. Rest In Peace Mr. Mike......

The camping season...

Its seems like we just got the trailer out of storage! I just love being at the campground. If it were up to me,I would stay there all summer. I love listening to all the birds chirping and the crickets making their noises. When its all dark and the park is quiet,its nice to listen to the night time noises. I love the smell of a campfire. And nothing beats the taste of a hotdog cooked over a campfire.

Thursday we will be heading out to celebrate Christmas in July. Its a whole lot of fun and there are so many different activities for the kids. The campground is all decorated for Christmas. I love to take the kids around the park at night when its all lit up for the holidays. Its a whole new thing when there isn't any snow on the ground.

So, now I am off to get things ready to head out.

Miss Dezi

Boy oh boy!!!

Time sure does fly when the summer air is here!!! Winter and snow never goes this fast!!!! Gee,it feels like summer just came and its already July 20th. It hasn't been the warmest summer,but just glad not to see the white stuff!

Lots has happened in the little bit of time I haven't blogged. My bedroom is finally finished and I did get to complete the bathroom project. My next project is to clean the basement.....That will mostlikely take me into the next century!!!Yeah,its that bad! Its been dificult to get the motivation to get down there and find a starting place. I did start lastnight,though...Lets see how much will get done with camping trips coming up.

Besides trying to keep up with house cleaning,I have been helping my parents and camping. Hanging out with friends and family has been on the top of my priorities these days. Camping has been great this year. The 4th of July was a blast. We had 6 families camping with us and more joined us for the 4th activities. It was great to have so many people be a part of that time. A lot of great memories. This weekend we will be celebrating Christmas in July in Baraga.....I can't wait!!!

The other day we added an new member to our family....We named her Dezi. She has to be the cutest puppy I have seen in awhile. She is a great puppy,just wish she wouldn't sleep so much during the day. It makes night time worse for me!!

Well, until the next time....Enjoy friends and family........

Summer,is that you!!!

Finally, I think you decided to meet us! It has been a long time coming. And its been beautiful out. Today is a bit gloomy,but we do need some much needed rain. So,I will forgive you today!!!

My flowers are growing so nice and the yard is looking so green. Janet would be so proud of my flower this year. I was so nervous about planting new flowers since we moved here. A few have died and I removed them,making me even more nervous.But Janet always gave me encouragement to just wait and see. The three year idea has stuck with me since. First year to plant them,second year to let them get used to it all and in the third year you will enjoy them. And that is what I am doing today. It seems strange that I didn't need to plant anything this year....So, I decided to just watch what I do have planted,grow. I finally got the chance to enjoy the Iris's that I was able to take from her yard. When she was very sick, she asked us if there was anything we would like of hers to remember her by. I wanted to know her favorite flower and she gave me one from her own garden. So, every morning I wake up and look out my window, I can see her favorite flower in all its purple glory. Thank you Janet for all your help and encouragement in my gardens. Your wisdom and kind words will never be forgotten. Instead of having those words though,I would much rather have you here!!! We sure do miss you......

Happy planting...And enjoy the sunshine.

Dear Lord...Give me strength!

Today is the day I have been dreading since last September...The offical last day of school for the summer break. I am already going crazy. Forget all about structure in this house for the next 3 months,forget about sanity...It is all gone!!!!Pray for me!!

Until then.....Enjoy the summer!!

Today was the first nice day we have had in a long time. I think spring was skipped all together this year. I has been sooooo cold and windy out. So....Since today was a beautiful day, the grass was mowed. I was so excited to finally get the opportunity to cut the grass! Normally a normal person would think that was a chore and dread doing it! I love being out in my yard and cutting the grass is right up on my list of likes. My grass though,is full of weeds! I work all summer to get a healthy lawn and then winter hits...What a waste!!! This year I am not going to do it,I am just gonna water it and cut it....

Over the Memorial Day weekend we took a run to Copper Harbor for our first camping trip of the season. We had a blast. The weather cooperated as far as it not raining,but it sure was chilly! Steve and Suzette and her 3 boys were there,along with Leon and Kristy and her 2 boys and Jimmy. Then Chrystal and Michael joined us with their 2 kids. I sure had a good time and hated to pack up Sunday night. I could live in that camper!!! We took walks,rode our bikes...Chatted around the campfire and just enjoyed each others company....Can't wait to hit the road again......

Til then...Happy Summer!!!

Today I recieved an email from a friend. It was one of those that you send to a someone special and this will happen, or send it to someone special to let them know you are thinking this....Well,at that moment of me reading it, the word made me think of my dear friend Jan. Knowing she is gone, I sent it to her. I guess because I felt better knowing it was there in her email.....About a minute or so later I got an error saying the address was no longer avalible. That doesn't suprise me,because most people don't keep paying for something after a loved one is gone. So, why is it that I feel so sad? Tears are rolling down my cheeks and it feels so good to cry....

Happy Mothers Day....

Today we helped Steve and Suzette celebrate with Nicks mom. It was a nice time. I love to hang out and talk. They are very busy, we are very busy. So time with family is very rare. I like to hear about the different things their kids are doing. Its so sad to see how everyone is growing up. I guess not sad...but just hard to believe...Where has the time gone. So today even though it was snowing out it was a great day. Mom Judy didn't have to waiste her time in the kitchen cooking. We ordered pizza had sat and talked....And did awhole lot of laughing. A nice day to store in the memory bank!

Looking back on Mothers Days past... There was an elderly lady working in her flower garden all by herself one Mothers Day. I am sure she had children but maybe they didn't live nearby. It bothered me for some reason that she was all alone in her yard. I turned my car around and went back to the store. I went to the floral department and told the lady to make me a special bouquet, the price wasn't important. The flowers were so beautiful....So I rode back down the road towards home and there was the lady,still in the garden. I stopped the car in the drive way and took the flowers to her....She looked up and said hello....I said..." I know you aren't my mother,but I felt that you needed something special today." She was so happy and her eyes got tears in them....She thanked me over and over. I got back into my car and drove away...I felt so good that I started to cry!!! A few months later, I recieved a card from her thanking me....I don't know how she knew it was from me because I never left my name on the card. I loved that good feeling so much that I do that more often now.....Some people have never recieved flowers.....It brighten there day and I am glad!!!

Happy Mothers Day Ladies!!!

Spring means new,fresh.....

So...I treated myself to a new hair cut and color. I haven't been blondish in forever,so I told my hair lady to do something fun and not a traditional blonde.Something funky...So I got a Faux Hawk in a blondish red with blonde highlights...I love short hair on me. I can't seem to grow it out,so I want it funky if I am cutting it all up! Can't wait to throw some make up on and take some pictures!!!

Happy Spring!!!

Spring has arrived!

It was so nice out today. The wind was a little chilly,but the sun was shining bright. It was the perfect Sunday. We had some time down at the park with our favorite friends,had some lunch and when all was done came home and got some yard things taken care of. Took Max for a walk and all was a good day.

I just loved taking the time out of everyday things to walk around my yard and look at all the new things poping up that I planted last fall. I worried about them not being planted right and not coming up this year. But so far everything is growing. WE took out all the summer stuff for the yard and put them in their places now all that is left...waiting for the flowers to grow for that final touch.

I have a few shutters to paint and the front porch to snad and paint,but today was just a day to enjoy the yard with no snow....Finally!!!

Happy SPring!!!!

Spring...Where are you???

Today's date...April 21st. The weather....SHITTY!!! We were woken by the sounds of the snow plow going past the house.Turning on the radio it was the sound of school cancelations all over town. While everyone else is enjoying this "Global Warming" effect....We are digging ourselves out of a two foot snow bank.It has been snowing since Sunday,but yet Friday it was 76 degrees. What did the people of the Great U.P do to deserve this crap!!!????

These pictures were taken this morning...The snow still keeps coming down. On Friday our yard was bare,my tulips were coming up and it was beautiful......

Changes are going on!!!

Well, the dreaded painting is done in my bedroom. I love it!!! Everything is coming together so nicely.Everything is cleaned out and cleaned up...Rearranged and so fresh and airy! I am not ready to show it off yet as I am waiting for a small chair for the corner by the closet. I found the perfect little chair to sit and read my books in. So...While I am waiting for the Target package,I am off to paint the master bathroom. I am going with the same style as in the bedroom of course,but the paint will be a shade or two lighter. I have already started on the ceiling painting it white. For some odd reason when I painted the bathroom a couple of years ago, I did the ceiling in the same color as the walls...What was I thinking!!!!

Sad to say though,there is only a 2 lb difference in the wieght department! I shouldn't say its sad,because it is 2 lbs and its better than a gain. But I just get so discouraged sometimes. I have been going 6 days a week and working my tail off for 2 hours everytime. And I only lost the 2 lbs!!!! Well, I know that I have to keep going and keep eating the good foods. I will have my ups and downs,but down the road it will pay off. Even though there isn't a big difference in my weight in numbers,my clothes fit better and I feel much better. Not so tired feeling and that guilt is not there like it was before. Things that I never thought I could do,I can do them....Like the stepper at the Gym. I would have never thought to try it out let alone be on it for 25 minutes and burning 200+ calories on it. I am up to 60 crunches on the crunch machine.When I started I couldn't even get the 10 done! I am up to riding 5 miles on the bike in a 20 minute period. I feel better now than I did a month ago. And I guess that is what matters not what the scale says!!! So,I am going to keep with it another month and see how things go. Its a life time commitment and I think I am heading in the right direction.

Nick is right there along with me working hard and that makes me happy to see him there and the changes that he is making. He is working hard...Thanks Nick for getting us signed up and pushing me when I don't want to be pushed!

Speaking of changes...Spring is here and the snow is starting to melt. Little by little the grass is showing.Its so nice to hear the birds chirping in the morning. I cannot wait to get outside and do some yard work. That is my favorite spot,out in the flower beds getting things to grow!

Happy Spring! Get out and enjoy the sunshine!!!

Saturday, March 28, 2009


Why is it the weekend is here...I have a list of things I want to do, and I just can't find the "want" to want to get them done. I have the paint all ready to go and I just don't want to be painting. Why can't I just get it done and over with. I won't have to worry about it! It is a dreary cloudy day,perfect day for house work right!!!

I have found a pancake breakfast to go to, I found a winter sports swap to browse around at and I found a movie to take the kids to.....Now I am at home,there is nothing holding me back!!! There is nothing left for me to do to keep me from that brush!!!!

So...I guess off to painting I go!!!

Trying out some new stuff!

Well, since I have been going to the gym,I thought I probably should start eating better. Duh,right!! So, I have started drinking the diet pops. I am terrible when it comes to pop. The more I try to cut back the more I want it and crave it. It is so hard to stay away from it. Well, I decided I better start doing something or my time at the gym is a waiste. So here I sit drinking a new found love, a Diet Pepsi!

Another thing I am tying out is that Yoplus Digetstive yogurt stuff. It isn't too bad! I have had better,but then I have had worse. I guess the part that keeps me eating it is that it is healthier than what I am used to.

If I keep all this healthy eating and keeping with the gym....Results will follow. By camping season I will be willing to go out on the bike trails with our friends who like to do those things. I won't be afraid that I am holding them up,I will be able to keep up with them!

Today at the gym....
Walked 20 minutes,incline on 4.5 at a speed of 3.5 distance 1 mile.
Biked 20 minutes, Level 2 at a speed of 10.5 distance 5 miles
I worked my legs today. There are a total of 6 machines I used, reps 3 and in those reps I did 10 each,so a total of 30 of each machine.Lowest weight used was 25 and the highest was 110.

I am on my 3rd bottle of water...That is big for me!!!

I am on a role!!!!

Waiting on Weight!!!

How come it takes so much energy and strength to lose a dang pound. It has been about a month that I started working on exercises and really watching my food intake. So...I weighed myself before I left the Gym today and I am up 2 pounds than when I started the darn place! How???? So, I am kind of disappointed. Make that really disappointed!!! I do feel better about myself reguardless of what the scale says,but it would have been nice to see a decrease...Not the increase I found when I looked down. I just have to keep going. Keep drinking the water and making those small changes that I have been doing. Soon enough I will start seeing results. I just have to keep telling myself not to give up!

I went back up in my bedroom today and started painting again....It needs to get done and the only way I am going to get through it is going back up there. I can't wait until it is all done.It is going to look so nice and Springy!!!Fresh new bedding and curtains. So I gotta keep plugging along...Spring will be here before you know it and there won't be a whole lot of time inside....

Making a comeback!!!!

Well, it has been over a month since I last wrote. I told myself...I better get back on here before too much time passes! I think winter is finally giving up the fight and moving back to where it came from. It has been beautiful out the last week or so. I guess that is the reason my spirits are on the rise. Winter can get so long here in the U.P.

Nothing really has changed since my last post. The house projects kind of came to a hault because I just ran out of energy. So, I have a half painted bedroom which is on my to do list. I had some major set backs with the hall way. But thats a story for another time! But things are coming along...Slowly,but surely!

I have made progress in the weightloss area though. Which I am proud to say! pounds lost as of yet. But Nick and I started the gym last week. We haven't missed a day yet. I love it there. I do feel much better,and I am eating much better. SO hopefully we will see some changes in the clothing part. I hope to see smaller sizes in my future. And maybe 20lbs from now...I will see a new tattoo in my future~!!!

It's been awhile!

I have been trying to get some motivation to get my butt in gear,but it's just not happening! So, that will explain the long gap in between my posts. I haven't been up to anything. Trying to get my bedroom painted and decorated, trying to finish the upstairs. Its hard when you don't feel like doing anything.

Winter has dumped about 30 inches more of snow on us the other day,so it has been really hard finding the "want" in getting anything done!

Hang in there with me, I will be back!!!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Boring Days Of Winter!

It has been a few days since I posted last. I just haven't been feeling up to doing anything. Winter keeps going on and on. We have so much snow this year. The temps have been really low,in the negatives. So it doesn't leave a lot to do. The kids hate being kept inside,but its just been too cold to play out doors. Living in a small town like we do,there isn't awhole lot to indoors.

So I have been painting along and trying to keep myself busy inside here. NO fun for the kids though.

Old photos

Today is a wintery day,perfect day for looking at old photos. I have this digital photo frame sitting on my table awaiting pictures!! I decided to tackle that job today. I am finding it hard to pick through all the hundreds of photos we have taken. Some are funny and so are just so sad. I can't believe how many people I have taken pictures of that have passed on. I will be sure to add those special ones. Friends that know me think I am crazy with my camera,taking it everywhere I go. Just incase I have a moment to take some pictures. Looking back on these pictures of those who passed on,I am glad that I took the time to bring my camera. I am so glad that I have all these memories of my children growing up and my friends kids getting older. So...when you have the chance....Take those photos!!!! I am glad I did!

SNOW For Sale

What happened to "global warming"? I think it missed the U.P.!!! Seeings it was -22 degrees. We have a total of 157 inches of snow. Last Thursday we had 123 inches.....That is a whole lot of snow in a weeks time. The snow banks are just crazy here. And I don't think Spring is going to come this year...I miss camping and all the things that summer brings...

Just incase there are people out there reading that don't have snow and want to see....I will post some picutes just for you. I could send some your way to if you'd like!!!! Just leave your address and name in the comment box at the end of the post!!!

18 Years Ago....

Tomorrow will be 18 years that Nick and I have been together. Dang! 18 looong years!!! Looking back through all those years and it just amazes me. I never thought once being a teenager would end up spending so much time with one person. I had NO plans on even going out with him. He was so easy to talk to and funny. Remembering we would be on the phone for hours.

Him and I have overcome so many obtacles. Jealousy,money issues,having children so young....And here we stand 18 years later,stronger than ever. He is my best friend,the one person I can turn to no matter what happens. He has been there through everything with me and has never turned his back.

Thank you Nick!!! Happy 18 years and hopefully there will be many more!!!

Why I Hate WInter!!!

There are many reason's I hate winter!!! The biggest reason being,idiot drivers! We live in the snow capital of the US.It is winter here almost 9 months out of the year.Once it starts snowing,it doesn't stop until spring...Okay so July!!!

So,on the radio the weather man comes across,telling us there is a storm warning...blah blah blah!!! Nothing new!! But all the idiot drivers get in there cars and feel the need to go to Walmart! Not because they need to get to and from work,they NEED to go to Walmart!!!

In the middle of the highway is a wreck.....Some dumb ass was driving in the middle of the two lanes or something like that. Of course a person from another country!!! (Sorry if you come from another country,but learn to drive before you get behind the wheel!!!!) So here was a pile up of cars when we come DOWN HILL around a SHARP corner....We started sliding and the back end is going all over.....I think we slid all the way down the hill sideways!!! I was so scared....Then we come to the cop car...Sitting in the middle of the road with the officer just sitting there...HELLO MOVE THE HELL OUTTA THE WAY!!!

We made it down the hill with no injuries...Just messy pants!!!Hehee!!! Kidding!!! So....I am not moving outta my yard until the snow is gone!!!!

Drive carefully!!!

Thinking About Spring!

Today the sun was shining,it wasn't snowing.Just a beautiful day. I spent the day trying to catch up on laundry. No one ever has anything to wear,but I always have a laundry room FULL of laundry!!! Where does it all come from!?

As I am doing the laundry,I am thinking about all the stuff I could be doing outside if there were no snowbanks. I could be repainting the shutters that are in need of paint. The porch needs to be scraped and repainted. And I am so worried about my garden wondering if all the plants that I had planted are going to come back. I can't wait to start spring cleaning my yard and watching the flowers bloom. I have a few jobs to take care of this spring and I can't wait!

Until then,I will daydream about being out camping and sitting around the fire pit put in the yard,laying on the ground outside on a summer night watching the stars.

What To Do Today

It is a cold one again today! The cold is nothing new but I am just wishing spring could be here! Seeings that isn't happening for a few more months,I have to find different things to do on the really cold days to keep me busy and out of the cupboards! So....All that is left to do is paint!!! I am growing tired of painting! But stupid me decided to redo the rooms upstairs.

And being a boring Sunday...I painted the day away. I finished the hallway and the closet. Did some more in Coleton's room and did some in my room. I wasn't planning on painting my bedroom so soon,but I found this awsome green color. I painted the hall closet that green because I am turning it into a little office space.I like the color so much that I started painting my bedroom. So...I guess I am painting my room!!

Don't worry I will post pictures as soon as I am done with it all!

Wintery Days

It was the coldest 25 degree day I ventured out in. We decided to take the kids sledding in Hancock today. That wind was so darn cold! The kids loved it,but man it sure was a cold one. I am still slightly afraid to go down the hill yet this year. Its strange how an adult is there telling the kids not to be afraid,they will love it. And here I am petrified of the darn hill!

So,while the kids and the husbands went up and down the hill,Jen and I took Nikiah for a walk around the little town to keep in with my New Years resolution. By the time we got back the kids were ready to call it quits. We had a good time even though the weather was chilly!

Keep Warm!

Happy New Year!!

I posted earlier about ringing in the New Year,something went wrong with the post.So here I am trying to remember what I wrote.

We had a blast New Years Eve. Started out with dinner at the Pilgrim River.The food was done just right. After dinner we went to the DT and ended our night like usual at The Uphill. We drank more than we should have and danced the night away. Everyone seemed to gravitate over to where we were. A lot of laughing...The best way to ring in the New Year!

With that said,now I need to concentrate on the New Year,saying goodbye to 2008. 2008 went out with a bang and alot of great memories in hopes of many more new ones for 2009. And last but not least...Those pesky resolutions I made for the new year have to be followed...Hopefully I can write in 2010 on how great I did in 2009!!!
