Bonjour, 2010!!!

Here's a pic of moi with les filles. We had a lot of fun drinking du vin and eating du pate et du fromage. Adieu, 2009! So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night.

I am very much looking forward to 2010 for a fresh start in so many ways. I am purging my household of junk today. We are getting our finances in order. I will be joining Weight Watchers at work next Monday. We will be eating better as a family, once and for all. I'll post my resolutions tomorrow, one of which will include spending less time on the computer. LOL!

Happy new year's eve!

A new year, a new me, a new attitude

How cliche is it to say that I'm making resolutions to lose weight and make healthier lifestyle changes because January 1 is almost here? Well, it just so happens that I am making these resolutions not just because it's the new year but because my doctor told me to do so!

I had already made the decision to make better financial decisions in the new year, buying only what we need, not what we think we need (random items that eventually turn into junk). Now I'll be making healthier decisions about food and exercise. I am thinking of joining Weight Watchers tonight. I am ready to buy food that is better for the entire family, too, since my kids eat too much junk food.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that another great change in me will be the frequency at which I will be scrapbooking. I am committing to cropping at least once per month with a friend. Not only that, but I will be purging my scrapbook room of supplies I never use.

Next year will be all about streamlining myself and my life. Change is coming, and it will be for the better. Wish me luck!

Baby, it's cold outside!

The mercury on the thermometer is heading south. I had bus duty after school all week this week and it got progressively colder each day. Thank goodness today is Friday and my bus duty is over for the next several weeks.

Will I scrapbook tomorrow? I certainly hope so. I have been suffering from a major creative block. I hope to remedy that soon or Chris might turn my scrapbook room back into his office. It is presently not doing much more than just holding paper and lots of junk. Maybe with this cold weather, I will be inspired to stay warm and get things done this weekend. If nothing else, I can clear some stuff out the room so my mind isn't cluttered with debris. I want to get over this creative dilemma.

Yes, I can!

It's December already?

Hard to believe but it's true. Other tidbits of information:

~Chris just celebrated the big 4-0. Welcome to middle age, sweetheart!

~Lizzie will be getting her cast off in two weeks; her broken arm is healing fine. You'll be back to your old self in no time, darling!

~Sean is doing well; he scored very well on his October math assessment. Way to go, son!

~I am glad that Christmas vacation is in a few weeks. I have a lot of organizing to do over the break.

La vie est bonne. A la prochaine!
