Well dang, I haven't blogged since last year. (Corny I know ;) My grandma used to do that to me when I was little. We would watch the ball drop together, and then 5 minutes later she would go "Well come to talk to me, I haven't talked to you since last year" Ah the little things that stick in your mind as you get older. They seem corny and silly then... but its funny how those are some of the most cherished and memorable things you carry throughout life.
Last night was nice, a cozy evening with the kids. Ana and Bub made it to watch the ball drop, and was out like lights shortly after. My family on the other hand was making quit the noise in town. Fireworks, screaming, pots and pans- people falling all over themselves. I found it rather hilarious staying up til 3 just to laugh at their expense. Question- What happens when 2 redneck drunks get ahold of fireworks and a coffee can? You get 2 blown up drunks LOL- Not literally, however instead of putting the can down on the ground and THEN lighting it, as told over and over- he insisted on holding the can. Needless to say he was jolted sober for awhile LOL ( I shouldn't laugh, because they are both very lucky not to have been severely hurt, but man on man- Its like throwing a firecracker near someones feet- That jump reaction that is just to irresistible to laugh at? Yea that times 10 :)
Thank you all for your support and kind words about my goals for this coming year. I am wishing you all much success with your resolutions and personal challenges this coming year as well. I figure this much, as long as we keep pushing each other...we will get there! Candi, and Connie you both kind of hit my 365 on the head.... but its a bit more. This year I am going to push myself to do two 365 projects. I figure if I can do it, I will ensure I get the "liz" time in- and if not.... its okay, it will just be 365 (give or take a few LOL) HOWEVER, I am going to do a scrap journal this year- Include one photo from the day, as well as journal ect.. and create it using my scrap products. That way I scrap, take photos and write daily. (You will see what I mean in tonight's gift)
ALSO- I am going to do a project that I am calling "Life's Lessons 365" . I know in no means am I going to catch up on my scrap albums for the kids anytime soon. And I have learned that life is far too short, and even though I don't think I will be going anywhere anytime soon- I want to make sure that for a fact my children have some of my words of guidance and "wisdom" (if you want to call it that LOL) for later on in life. Of course I plan on keeping up with it far past this year, but I want to make sure this year I get as much in as I have learned on my path so far. I am almost finished with my pages for today- but was waiting for this quiet evening time to complete them. I will post them as I go, and anyone wishing to join me can- I would be more than happy to have you along the ride. I will also provide "basic life lesson cards" as I go on the journey too- so you can use and modify if you wish for your own scrap projects.
Okay, now what you all been waiting for .......
