Christmas and the New Year

Well Christmas was a HOOT! It's always fun when our family gets together. We just have too much silliness and cavorting going on to take life too seriously at times. When we get together we are all kids again. This break has been wonderful and just what I needed. I am looking forward to this upcoming year and I am hoping it will bring as many good things as this past year has. As I reflect on what has come to pass this year I am so thankful for all that I have in my life: The best family in the whole wide world (I really don't think there is another family out there who could be closer than we are when we can get together.) I know you are thinking, "Well I wonder if that includes me?" Of course it does! If you are with me and we are having a good time together. Friends and family alike, we all come together for the same reasons, to love, laugh, and live life to it's grandest. On a similar note, I totally am still madly, insanely, and passionately in love with my perfect partner in life and am so glad everyday when I wake up and he is there beside me. I think the hardest thing I may have to do in this upcoming year is to be without him while he works somewhere else. That will be my biggest challenge, more so than college or teaching ever was. I can't even think about it. This is a happy blog so I won't talk about it.

Back to happy bunny thoughts... I should keep this short, it's not a novel you know, it's a blog. So anyway, thanks to all of you, my family and friends for sharing such a glorious year with me and here's hoping the next one will be even grander! CHEERS!

Happiness is...

watching a marathon of the BBC's "How Clean is Your House" and feeling good that your house is cleaner than those on the show and not feeling guilty about sitting on the sofa watching a full day of tv and NOT cleaning the house :)
