Happy New Year!

Well hi! Thanks for stopping by! How are you? Did you have a nice vacation? Lovely Christmas? Get anything exciting under the tree? Are you a party-goer on New Year's? Yeah, me neither.

We had a really wonderful vacation. I was worried that it would be hard on everyone, but I think the hardest part was Tommy going back to work this morning. LOL He especially enjoyed his stay-cation, and we really loved that he was home. We spent many mornings sleeping in (VERY hard to break that habit) since the kids would go downstairs and play Wii at all hours of the morning. And the day. And evening. They are really enjoying that gift. We had a birthday last week, and I was called in to work 2 days (goes to the Christmas bills that will be coming. yay!). Tommy spent the majority of his vacation re-organizing our storage room/laundry room in the basement. We are almost done, but I am so happy with how it looks right now. It was getting difficult to walk to the washer and dryer, but he cleared, cleaned and stacked everything to make it easier. It is great to go in there now, with a rug for under my feet, new shelves for everything and finally a place to hang up some clothes.

I would like to tell you about my BEST gift, right above the re-organization. Remember this? I'm sure you do. Well, its gone.

Isn't that better?!?!? I am tickled pink for my new fridge that can comfortably fit 4 gallons of milk! I can see what I'm looking for, and have plenty of room for leftovers. Yipeee! Tommy totally surprised me after Christmas, and I am so grateful. The kids love the ice and water on the door, and I just looove how big it is. (Thanks, Wilson, for helping move the old one to the basement!)

So, back to reality, back to school work (we are almost halfway done with the year!) and back to work. Back to eating less sweets, and getting up in the morning.

So, tell me, link, or whatever: what was your best gift??

I received many lovely gifts. But my surprise gift was a dryer! You really need one here since it rains most days of the year. And I had no clue. I just happened upon it Christmas morning as I went out to the garage to get the sausage out of the 2nd fridge. I had to do a double take.
