Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve & New Years Day. Mine was enjoyable for me, I don't know if anyone else would think so though. I'm one of those rare people that don't need constant entertaining. I'm very content most of the time with a good book, a good movie & the company of my loving husband!

This year, started out great because I got off work 2 hours early on New Years Eve. That's 2 paid hours off early. Always a good start to anything in my opinion! Tom convinced me to forgo my diet for the evening and go out to dinner (it didn't take a lot of convincing). Anyway we decided to spend the evening in and put together a puzzle. Tom loves puzzles! So we went over to Walmart to pick up a card table and a puzzle. We ended up finding 2 different puzzles. Unfortunately, the first one we decided to try is insanely hard. Tom even said that. He's still working on it 2 days later.

We spent the evening putting together the puzzle and watching episodes of "Friends". Tom has gotten so he likes that show as much as I do. It was a very laid back evening that I think we both enjoyed! I was very glad we weren't out in the freezing cold. There were a couple of times when we were outside that the cold went right through me. Brrrrrrrr!

2008 is going to be a great year! Tom's getting ready to graduate & then the next part of our life gets to begin. It's kind of fun to prepare for something you don't have any idea how it ends....or even starts. Makes for an exciting time.

I do love puzzles. It's in my blood, there was no escape. My dad does puzzles, my brothers do puzzles, even my mom does puzzles. It was futile to resist it. Anyway, I had a great time too. Love ya!

That must be one hard puzzle for Tom to still be working on it 2 days later!

You are lucky that you got to have a nice evening at home. I have felt very nesty the last couple of weeks. But, Spencer wouldn't let me stay home new years eve. I tried to call you after midnight but you must have gone to bed early. Ashley only made it to about 10 pm (so I was told by David)
