Just Another Day

I woke up to a bit of white fluffy snow. Not much though. I read one weather report about one inch and a half give or take. I guess it is winter time so it is to be expected. 🙂

It is the bitter cold that I dislike. At least when I filled up my car, there was no wind so it didn’t feel as bad at 9 degrees out. LOL

I began the day watching a little Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel. Love watching the cute little things. No, I don’t want anymore cats, two is enough. We did have three but one got out the door and never came home. Sure do miss him. 😦

Our Super Bowl food for the day was making burritos. I also made some nachos with all the fixings. Yummy. Hubby made the lunch after seeing I wasn’t ready to make them yet. LOL

Hmmm, maybe wait long enough someone else will make the meals. Why is it the mom always has to make the meals? The million dollar question. 🙂

It was a lazy day of visiting with hubby before he had to go back to work. He didn’t get to come home until late yesterday afternoon. In fact, I had to pick him up forty miles away. He is a truck driver and ran out of hours. Since they have the new mandated electronic logs, it runs out you stop. He could fudge a bit but then the boss man will get upset so we don’t want that. Not as easy to fudge like the paper logs. Sucks a bit. Congress needs to butt out.

The middle son decided to watch the Super Bowl so I heard it but I was playing on my phone trying to ignore it. 🙂

I’m not a fan. Once in a while I will catch the half time show but that is about it. I was glad he was interested though instead of playing his video games.

Part way through the Super Bowl I had to take hubby back to his truck. Glad the roads were clear. I hate driving on it. Or rather I hate other cars driving on it because most like to still speed. Ugh.

There I say goodbye for another five or ten days, one never knows for sure until the end of the week. I never thought he would pick this career after retiring from the military. He enjoys it other than the being away and missing out on family stuff.

Hopefully, only a year or two more. Crossing fingers. I need to win the lottery! 🙂  He bought me two lottery tickets for my birthday that he gave to me. Ya, we are big spenders! 🙂 The thought that counts.

Do I have to share if I win since he bought them?  🙂

I will think about that. 🙂

 

 

 

 

Cheers to 2014!

Happy New Year!

My New Year’s Eve was spent in my cozy little living room under my warm and fuzzy blanket. 🙂 The two younger boys went to an all night roller skating party, the older boy at his girlfriend’s, and that left hubby and I some quiet alone time. We spent it watching movies! 🙂

We thought of going to watch a movie but we couldn’t agree on one we both really wanted to watch. I think we both were just not wanting to go. After we dropped the young ones off we stopped at Sonic for a yummy sundae! 🙂 After stuffing our faces we headed to the movie rental place. We ended up with 5 movies of different categories.

We watched two movies and the last one was in the middle when midnight hit. We were a bit late wishing each other Happy New Year. If it hadn’t been for the fireworks going off in the neighborhood we probably would have missed it completely.  🙂 One of our neighbors had some fun with those, they lasted awhile. We didn’t even get up to look.

Like I said, warm fuzzy blanket. 🙂

We were about twenty minutes late sending a SnapChat to the oldest daughter wishing her happy birthday! She has a lucky New Year’s Day birthday. No, she wasn’t the New Year’s baby, she was second to be born in the hospital that day. 😦 I tried.

Hubby picked up the boys bright and early on New Years Day and they were all smiles from the fun they had. We then sent them directly to bed for some rest.

Ah, more quiet. See we planned this right. 🙂 We continued some more movie watching and hubby made us cheese and ham omelets. Yum!

I also put cheese, chili, and little smokies into my neat little three crockpot gadget. All day today we snacked on nachos and little smokies. What a meal. 🙂

It also lightly snowed!

Even though our evening wasn’t full of exciting things, it was nice. It was nice to have hubby here and the kids happily doing what they enjoyed. I would like some year to visit New York and see the ball drop. I think that would be fun. One of these years I would like to throw a party with friends where we can enjoy games and maybe even some beverages. 🙂

I’m glad every year is a bit different how we celebrate and not the same thing every year.

As for resolutions, I mostly just want to be happy and healthy. I suppose that means I better pledge to eat better and to exercise more. I guess beginning the New Year with nachos and smokies wasn’t the way to start the healthy resolution. I guess I also bombed the exercise part with planting my bum on the couch. I suppose this is record breaking time in breaking my resolutions. Ooops. Oh wait, I was happy! Yay I kept one! 🙂

I wish everyone the best of everything in 2014! I am happy to have crossed paths with everyone one of you in some way! 🙂

Never regret, regrets make unhappy people.
