New Year's Eve

Monday, December 31, 2012

Been working on goals for 2013.

Planning daughter's wedding for August 8 so that should help motivate me to keep more focused on my goals and get some projects done around the house.

Hosting a get together with mostly daughter's friends tonight. Daughter and financee got to go to Cincinnati Bengals football game in the cold weather yesterday. Her Matron of Honor's husband got tickets through work. EJ was so looking forward to it. The first time he's been to a cold football game :) In Florida they are usually a lot warmer.

Stephanie and EJ leave tomorrow :( We take them to airport around 7:30 am and they take off around 9 and get home at 11. Flying sure helps not spending a lot of time on the road.

Daughter made the cutest little box to give to her attendants for the wedding to ask them to be in the wedding. Pinterest is awesome for neat ideas. Hopefully we have a bunch of things started as I'm sure time will get away from us.

Have to work until noon. Then bringing Mom home to spend time with us.

Off to make it a great day!

    Good morning Kathleen and happy New Years Eve emoticon I've also been evaluating my goals for 2013. I've joined a few new groups that appear to be very active which is what I need. Was on a few that were dormant and so was I so I've already joined a 4 week challenge that begun yesterday. WooHoo..... Have a great day and enjoy your time off.

Fabulous Friday

Friday, December 28, 2012

We booked a place for daughter's wedding and reception. A place only 2 years old nearby. We went there yesterday for appt....and it is gorgeous and seems pretty reasonable. Set the date for August 8, 2013. Daughter is on the ball and organized. Have already gotten alot of things out of the way.

Last day of work before the weekend. Girl's day tomorrow! Daughter and daughter in law are going to spend the day together. Not sure what the guys are going to do.

Daughter and EJ were picked up by our son and daughter in law and spent the night with them in Cincinnati and they'll bring them back today. Glad they are spending time together.

Off to making it a great day!

    I am glad you are safe and at home.
I know if you give her plenty of time to plan and offer help but not try to take over the wedding plans it will go great.
Have a great day

Wacky Wednesday - Didn't realize it was Wednesday not Monday...

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Such a wonderful Christmas! Good family time together! Looking forward to more good times together.

Off to work today. Have bad storm supposed to come. Boss sent text - if it gets bad to be safe and if I can run in to take payments and check on things...or if not...whatever is best. So far doesn't look like any bad weather has started.

Daughter and EJ will be here through Jan 1. So enjoying time with them.

Off to have a great adventurous day!

A Thankful Christmas

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Feeling so blessed! So much uncertainty but trying to focus on today and how truly blessed I am. Thankful for God! I'm thankful that He is in Control.

Off to begin a busy day...just wanted to pause and be Thankful!

    To often we start our days looking at the "to dos" or "Must dos" it is refreshing to read about starting with thanksgiving. May God Bless you. Remember His love in the morning and His loyalty in the evening.
Happy New Year!

    Glad you did, Kathleen. So much flows through my mind-mixed emotions- but Christ is the only thing-His sacrifice that makes sense-and the love of the family He has give me. Enjoy!
