I hope everyone had a nice New Year's Day. I fixed a traditional New Year's dinner of Blackeyed Peas and Cornbread. It was yummy!!

I did not make any resolutions because I do not/cannot keep them. So this year I said the heck with it, not gonna do it.

Hubby went back on the day shift at work today. I have enjoyed not having a car. I had told everyone that that was going to be the case from now on. So what happens this morning? One of the kids calls my cell,
Kid: Mom do you have the car?
Me: No, what did you do, miss the bus?
Kid: yes
So, needless to say, she was late for work. NOT MY PROBLEM!! I gave them all enough warning

Back to not having a car during the day, we did this partly so that I will quit driving so much. This brand new car, only 5 1/2 to 6 months old, already has over 12 thousand miles on it. NOT GOOD!!
Also we thought my husband would be getting a different job, ( the lead tech at a different location). He did not get it. Very disappointing, but he thinks it may be a Blessing in disguise. I hope he is right.
Anyway, back to the car, again. We are also hoping it will cut down on the gas consumption also. Anything will help at this point. I'm tired of being a taxi!

And with me being home all day, maybe I'll actually get off my duff and do something. Maybe.

We are supposed to be getting more snow on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, so I have to have hubby take me to the store this evening to do some shopping for the rest of the week. That way I can stay in the house, which suits me just fine, because it will also be very very cold, like below zero cold.

Over Christmas we got about 6 1/2 inches of snow, then more snow over that weekend. Hubby's oldest daughter came down from Omaha on Saturday, and did not leave until this morning because it snowed over this weekend.
We had the 3rd snowiest December since the city started keeping records. 15 inches of snow all together.
