    Happy New Year Everyone! Here’s to another blogging year with great friends and new victims! I mean, commenter’s! LOL!

    Happy New Year! 🙂 I started it out sleeping in, WAY too long! Guess, I needed it!

    Yesterday we watched Criminal Minds and The Twilight Zone marathon all day and night, finished it off watching the New Years countdown and went to bed!

      I slept in too – got up about 11am. This is probably my last chance in 2011, so I don’t feel too bad about it!

      Today I had the girls watch a kids’ video we have about New Years around the world, and brought up some party favors we had from a past year. So they are having fun. So far, so good.

        That’s when I got up! I never sleep past 9:30 anymore. Now it’s noon and I’m yawning. I don’t think we’ll do much today, maybe curl up in bed and watch a movie soon. The boys are playing Mario, but I’m just not feeling that quite yet. More coffee please! 🙂

        That sounds like fun for the girls! Enjoy your day!!!!

        grumble. I had to get up a couple times during the night. Our furnace crapped out AGAIN!! It died on Tuesday, and the guy came out and cleaned it, thinking that was the problem. It worked for three days, then died yesterday morning. I cussed at it, got it running, and called Jason the Furnace Guy. We decided to coax it along until Monday to avoid Holiday Overtime Charges.

        HAH. Last night, around 9, I realize that I hadn’t heard the furnace for most of the day, and wasn’t it just a little freaking cold in here??? I look at the thermometer. 53. Craaaaaap. I call him back. He was on his way home – with a designated driver, and all giggly. Sonofa…

        So we turned on the oven (it’s electric), and hauled the two space heaters up (they’re ceramic), and got the place up to about 60, and went to bed. At 3, Steve wakes up and announces that it’s really stinking cold, and that he was turning the heat stuff back on. But I didn’t want to leave the oven on, unattended, so he stayed up with it. Got me up at 7. So much for sleeping in.

        But Jason the Furnace guy just left – it was the sensor that was on the fritz – and I can now feel that lovely vibration that accompanies the furnace. And the house is up to 56 degrees!!

    We watched fireworks 2x yesterday in addition to getting some time outdoors and watching (live) Joseph and the Amazing Techicolor Dreamcoat (which was a real treat for all of us!) The girls enjoyed their first ever cocoa and potato chips. (They LOVED the potato chips!!) Miss A loved the fireworks, but Miss E doesn’t like the noise. She was cute at 1am, though. She said, “Happy holidays! I was too shy to say happy new year during the fireworks, so now I’m telling everyone. Hap-py holidays! Hap-py holidays!” She was in a great mood, just a little late, LOL.

    I’m really glad we have one more day before school starts again!

      I’m really glad it’s only one more day till back to work and back to normal hours. I don’t do so well on all these days off. It’s like I’m busy taking care of a toddler most of the time.

    So today (Saturday) we went out to dinner and then after I put the kids to bed, we old ladies watched Eat, Pray, Love on Pay-Per-View. I thought it was thought-provoking, but I felt the conclusion was unsatisfying. Like it all came full circle – in the end you need a man to want you if your life is to be happy / complete. Oh well, it was fun to watch it – and certainly no worse of a message than most chick flicks.

    Today felt so weird, because it was so relaxed. I can’t remember the last day that wasn’t full of either work pressure, travel, or both. Aside from watching 4 movies/videos, I did of course have stuff to do – taking care of my kids, housekeeping, some work, some paperwork for my kids, reorganizing some things – but the day seemed so long. Is this what it’s like to not work on weekends?
