We forgot the collard greens!

Happy New Year! We did not have any earth-shattering plans last night. Don't tell anyone, but we actually went to bed at about 12:02 am +/- 45 seconds. Are we party-poopers, or what?

I have always heard that what you do on New Years Day is what you can look forward to doing all year.
I hope that's not the case. We had a pretty good day for the most part, so if some aspects of our day repeat that would be ok by me.
 
Thumbs up to repeating:
  1. Sleeping in
  2. Eating a late, leisurely breakfast
  3. Shopping with my mother-in-law
  4. Finding Chris a new suit and coat that were both on sale YAY!
  5. Eating dinner at our favorite italian restaraunt and getting canolis TO GO!
Thumbs down to repeating:
  1. Getting upset this morning about what may or may not happen in the next year
  2. Seeing the weather forecast that "unrealistic cold" temps are coming our way.....(Hurry May!)
  3. Dealing with Dylan's awful allergies all day long...
  4. Looking around wondering when the Christmas decorations will be put up
  5. Forgetting to eat collards and ham hocks~to bless a new and prosperous year! Whoops!
All in all, it was a good day to start the year. Our family is together, healthy (besides the allergies and monster cold that Chris is fighting), and blessed beyond measure. Good think we have no plans whatsoever tomorrow and can rest up before going back to a little place called REALITY.  It will be back to school (!!!) for all of us on Monday. So, we are kicking back and enjoying the downtime while it lasts.  Here's to a wonderful 2010 despite not eating the requisite collard greens and black-eyed peas! Time to attack the canolis!

I've never heard that what you do on New Year's Day is a precursor to what your year will be like. Then I guess I am hanging out in my pink snuggie all year and watching TV and surfing the internet. Sounds good to me!
