It was nice to have most of last week off of work, but just finished 3 12's and I'm tired and SUPER happy I'm off until Sunday, other than my little 5 hour Friday jaunt at the clinic...that doesn't really count because I'm super lazy, and it's a nice change of pace :-)

We had a really good Christmas. There was a bit of a cloud hanging over the day, it was even more apparent that Gina isn't here anymore. There were no major fights, no injuries, and the kids let me sleep in until 730am (I went to sleep at 3am). So it was good. And I took a nap.

I worked for 12 hours today. I did as many exams in the last 3 hours as 2 of us did in the first 9. I hate days like that. Oh well, they were paying me alot to sit and play scrabble, watch Dirtiest Jobs, and play my nintendo DS. Super.

I hope the next year is good. This past year had a lot of ups and downs, but that's just life, right?

I'm going to start taking a pic a day like Alien suggested. Shit I have 9 minutes to take the first one....

I'm going to be working out twice a week with Chris, my trainer.

We'll be getting our debt taken care of. I'm going to try what Kelly did, which is make out a month to month schedule of what we're paying/when/and how much.

I'm also going to try to spend more time on the floor, playing with the kids, stretching, just relaxing. I get TOO comfortable on the couch, and don't want to spend nearly as much time watching TV and on the computer.

So on that note, I'm outta here. Yawn. Happy 2008 everyone!

Happy New Year!

7:30 IS late for kids. My brothers, who are 15 and 13, tried to get us up at 5. I was like, NO WAY JOSE.

yeah no chance in hell I'd get up at 5am. Luckily they had a late night Christmas Eve, didn't get home til almost 11, so they were tuckered out. Both ended up in our bed in the middle of the night, and both said Santa had come, but they promised they didn't touch anything. LOL
