So we stayed home last night and it was just us four, so hubby and I decided to have a few drinks. I NEVER drink....I used to all the time before I got married and had kids, I would go out with my friends to the clubs and partied and drank and did the usual single life crazy stuff. I could pretty much drink any guy under the table. THAT WAS THEN, this is now......the poor old me just can't handle it anymore.
My favorite drink is Southern Comfort and Coke and the other one that comes close is Captain Morgan and Coke. I stuck to Southern Comfort yesterday, and it's weird but funny in a way, the minute I opened that bottle and took a whiff, I was INSTANTLY teleported to the club scene, I could almost hear the music, see the people and remember laughing and dancing with my friends. Amazing how smells, sounds and sights can take us back to a certain point in time.
Poor Nicholas tried to stay awake but by 10pm he fell asleep on my lap, so he got to ring in the new year asleep, something I've done oh, countless times.
So now it begins, the whole year ahead of us, what will happen, where will we be next time this year? I'm a bit of a control freak, no really, I just don't like not being able to control things around me, so when that clock strikes midnight I have this mixed feeling of YAY, we got through another year, and HMMMM what is going to happen this year? Control freak much?!?!? LOL
Anyway, I can honestly say that I'm BACCKKKKKKK!!!! I'm back to normal blogging and here in two days, things will be finally calming down. Jasmine goes back to school on Wednesday which is a good thing because if I have to put up with the sibling fighting and rivalry for just ONE more day, I will have to lock myself in my bedroom. At least hubby has this week off, and he said he will take her to and from school AND he wants me to sleep in every day. How I love that man!!!!
So since things are getting back to normal, I'm going to get my posts to the usual, including what I'm doing, eating, watching etc....also because it's monday, I'm going to post my Menu Plan for this week, not sure yet if Laura is hosting it today, but mine will be up nevertheless. So if you want to see what's cooking the our Household, go on over to my Food Blog.
I've started a new book today, called "Becoming a Woman of Spiritual passion" by Donna Morley. I can't wait to read it all, it's a book about Overcoming Challenges to Your Relationship with God.
"Spiritual Passion is what separates those who really want what God wants....from those who are merely going through the motions." Donna MorleyAs I read the book I'll be sharing my thoughts and views, I feel that at times if I actually write it down it makes more sense....or I see something that I would have otherwise missed.
Well I better get going, I have tons of things to do today. The Christmas decorations are finally down, makes the living room look so much bigger and open....I'm a weird person, I love decorating during the holidays and getting the tree up, but once it's over and everything is removed, I breathe a sigh of relief.
Hope you're all having a wonderful first day of the year, I would give you my resolutions, but I don't have any, I found it's easier not to list them because that way I won't feel disappointed when I fail them all LOL
Dinner tonight is Pork Roast with Mashed Potatoes. You know the first time I made roast for my husband he wanted to know why I would make something that had to cook for hours. LOL
Dyeing my hair - yes those pesky greys are starting to show again.
