That's what's so awful about having these back to back... getting in routine is just awful & hard.
5 day work weeks are for the birds.
So did everyone celebrate the New Years?
I did make it to midnight! YAHOOO... the hubs didn't though. He was asleep I think by 8pm. He doesnt stay up late. & to give him credit, he is up like every 2 hours with a puppy & a blind dog... so he's kinda exhausted all the time now.
Not only did I celebrate the New Years by loving on 3 boys.... Harvey, Ernie & Bruno... Zoe was tucked in her bed in the other room... but I watched Bridget Jones Baby & totally missed the ball drop & had no idea when midnight actually hit. Oops.
We also got to celebrate another Christmas with our framily & our grandbuddies.
& we even got to do that on my birthday. Yep... I turned a year older this weekend.
|I try to take a picture every year on my birthday|
Something that is kinda MEH because yeah, more wrinkles & gray hair & just all the effects of aging... but PRAISE THE LORD because its another year of life ... & life is so valuable & precious & something to cherish so I'm thankful for another year....
So on my birthday, we ran over to see my parents, where my dad made me a homemade dreamscile cake - how cute is that?
& then we were going to head to a wedding, but it was so far out of our way & we ended up getting a late start & had to be back at our friends house, so we had to make the hard call to skip the wedding. I hated it sooo much... it's just hard to get everything in. I didnt even get to get my birthday dinner in where I get to pick the place we eat... my only chance to make Ricky eat at some place different.
I did get a sweet birthday song from our grandbuddy & my sweet friends got a cheesecake for us to celebrate with.... I really am blessed to have such amazing people in my life that I get to spend my birthday with.
It was so dang cold this weekend... like zero degrees during the day & below zero at night. Not fun when you have to carry a blind dog outside & wait for him to pee & bring him back in.... BRRRRRRRRRRR.... so on New Years Day, we just made the call to stay home & not leave the house in the cold.
I'm so glad we did that.
|Ernie will NOTTTTTTT leave Bruno alone|
|These two kicked out the 2 old babies in the "retirement home" area of the house|
I cant believe Harvey even squeezed in that bed
I made it so productive.
I got my Amazon Echo hooked up - FINALLLLYYYY
I got my Christmas stuff all put up.
I did so many loads of laundry, it's kinda ridiculous.
I got some photo editing done.
We got to love on some dogs (they're going to be even sadder that work is back to its regular schedule)

I made some crock pot chili.
I watched so much Netflix.... Finished Fuller House, watched Bridget Jones Baby, watched some corny Netflix original Christmas movie (something Christmas Inheritance???) watched most of a Series of Unfortunate Events. I would have finished watching that, but our connection got messed up & I couldnt get anything on Netflix to load anymore. Sigh...
What I didnt do - any knitting. SHOCKING - I know!!!
But it was a great weekend ... ringing in a new year & getting another year of life behind me. No complaints.
How was your New Years weekend?
Was it horribly cold where you were at?
Suffering a little getting back into schedule today?
