A New Year

Well, it was an exciting New Year’s Eve at our house. (NOT) I didn’t make it much past 7 pm last night. I fell asleep in my recliner, and Louie laid on the couch and watched tv. I woke up just before 11:00 pm and stayed up til just after Midnight, then went to bed. We’re real party animals you know! Winking smile

I had hoped to spend MOST of today sewing with my’ new friend’. I never touched her. Sad smile

Instead, I got up at 5 AM, changed calendars in a few rooms, then worked in my office, ordering checks, paying bills online, and cleaning out my file drawer of THREE years of receipts (and some reminiscing) and statements so I could fill out my tax worksheet, as our tax appointment is this coming Saturday. I was in my office ALL DAY! I did get my tax worksheet completed about 5:00 PM or so (ok, there were SEVERAL interruptions due to checking Facebook, reading blogs, and reading and answering emails). BUT there was also a lot of this.

Sorting papers into piles (separate years) to save and file in a different location…

 …taking a break so I could eat a wonderful breakfast my sweetie made for me….Cinnamon Roll Waffles (straight from the can to the waffle iron) and eggs….YUM!…..

The only reason I was awake at midnight was because the neighbors always feel it necessary to see their New Year in with fireworks. I wish they'd keep their frivolity to themselves. Kind of makes me wonder what their reaction would be if I shot a few off around 6 or 7 this morning. Yes, I know. I'm not very nice. Anyway, we aren't very good party animals either. Hope your new year is full of good things and plenty of sew time.

At least you can do guilt free sewing knowing that it is done!

We were all in bed, asleep, before the new year came. First time since the boys were tiny. Hubby makes 'Aebleskivers' for breakfast on New Years Day. We also had a large pot of black eyed peas (we are from the south).
