Friday Stuff

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Hellllooooo Friday.
It hasn't even seemed like a long week so I guess I am not super ready for Friday...
But still. It is Friday and Fridays are always good.
Eric has been off all week and it has been so, so nice.
Hello mama-vacation.
It has been a busy, busy week though,  full of ...
family and bowling and ice skating and seeing the new Chipmunks movie...and more family
and lunch out and a visit to the nursing home to see great-grandpa...
Yep, a very full week indeed.
But good full.

We went bowling with some of Eric's family in town for the holidays.
I didn't  bowl, I just watched because we had come there straight from ice skating and I
was still recovering. Yikes.
I had not been ice skating in so long (high school?) and had no idea I would be that bad.
I mean, not that bad.
I was a hot mess on the rink and don't think I will be doing that again any time soon.
But the kids, who had never ice skated, did great! I was so proud of them.


We did The Big Take-Down yesterday.
All the Christmas stuff is down, gone, boxes packed up and back up to the attic, 8.5
million pine needles swept up and Christmas tree out on the curb, thank you very much.
By this time I am usually ready for it all to come down I guess, I just need to get
back to a bit of organization around here, just a bit.
And it feels good to go into the New Year with a somewhat clean, organized house.
And mind.

Tell me what your New Year's Eve plans are.
Anything exciting? Big plans?
No plans? Staying home? Have a sitter?
Do tell.
Hope you all have a great Friday!!!
