So.. here we are.. January 1st, Twenty Ten. I love the sound of this new year. Sounds Magnificent. Powerful. Full of Big Things!
My word for the year? Strength. My other draft post was all about why I need it, want it, and want to live up to it. I'll keep it to myself right now. And why 2009 was the Year from Hell... Perfect stuff for a scrapbook page.. with hidden journaling... Light Bulb Idea: I'll Use it for Project 12! One of my New Year Resolutions...
The kids and I did stay up until midnight and watched the 'countdown' with Ryan Seacrest. We did NOT see the ball drop! The TV did not show us that.. But the kids were happy little campers - we literally camped out in the living room and had our own little party. Fun fun fun! Last year they cried their eyeballs out because I turned off the alarm when it rang...so Jan. 1st 2009 was started with tears. This year, I did good. We also had a 11:55 pm phone call to remind us. Thanks Auntie Paula (it was 2am her time -what a woman)! You've got my back! And, Rabbit Rabbit (It's our good luck mantra)..
So, today after much piddlin' around (aka blog surfing) I cleaned and organized my office and scrap area... Holy. I have tons of stuff! Tons of stuff I don't use! I spent 3 hours on this little exersize and still have a long way to go. But, it's a start!
The kids are now 'dumpster diving' in my junk. Recycling at it's finest! Right now they are going through my supply of chipboard alphas... guess I'll be finding those babies around the house for days!
And, I started a little journal to keep track of the challenges I hope to play with. Sami keeps asking me 'are there any contests going on?'. She's my challenge associate. She skipped Tim's Tags, but we have a list here to start the new Year!
The kids also digged out some gingerbread dough and made some interesting dough art. It kept them busy on a yucky weather day. We got boatloads of snow yesterday, but today was windy, and yucky.
Oh.. I have a FLAT tire. As in, the rim is sitting on a flat tire in the garage. So tomorrow's adventure will be to get the Flat fixed. The plan is to fill it with air, drive to town and have it fixed. Joy.
I don't have my list of resolutions, yet. Still gotta think of that one.
But, for now...
