A New Year, Already?!?

I can't believe that I haven't posted since last year.... LOL! I know it never gets old...

So how were the holidays for everyone? Good I hope. We were very low keyed this year. We didn't even have a house full. All of our single friends became attached this year so that was nice. We didn't rush to get things done... if they weren't done then they stayed undone until after. I think I like that way better then rushing to get things done and end up missing out.

Each member of the family got a new afghan. Of course I don't have pictures.... that would be silly. But I will get them up before the week is over. We will be taking the tree down today. I shut the lights off two days ago and the thing just looks sad... so away it goes!

I took the monsters sledding for the first time. I know, I know.... This should have done long ago but lots of excuses why it never happened.... That has been rectified! They are now hooked and watching the weather for more snow! They have gone twice now.... the second time we would have been out longer but Picky ran Mouthy over. Not on purpose, it was definitely and accident. Needless to say, that trip was cut short.

I got a fitbit for Christmas.... It is an all seeing, all knowing electronic device that measures, steps, distance, flights of stairs, calories, has a stop watch feature and even knows how I sleep. Freaky, I know! But its a challenge to actually get the steps in for the day as is the stairs. Next week I start on the Jamie Easton 12 workout program... I even have a workout buddy! ;o) spiffy I know! I'm hoping to be done 30 pounds by the end of March, shouldn't be to hard to lose 2 pounds a week. I can hope!!!

Here is a picture of my newest addition!

It's almost 3 feet long and wide enough for a Queen size bed. I still have lots of work to do on it. I just wanted to show off the progress. Hard to believe that this is the same yarn that made this blanket.

I think I'm going to start a flicker account. Tumblr is ok but I think flicker might be better so I can post collages!

Anyways, lots of plans for the new year!

Grim will be having his surgery at the end of the month. This will bring a great many difficulties as he will be immobilized for the first 4 weeks after the surgery. He will be off work for a total of 16 weeks. So he will like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. So for January I will be cleaning and getting everything ready for this as I don't think I will have much time to do after.

I am so excited and I can't believe I waited this long in the post to share. I got an opportunity to attend/host at a Tradeshow! What this means is I will have a table set up with all my Thirty-one products and there are going to be over 500 women in attendance! I'm hoping for 10% to be interested in the product enough to want to have shows. Especially, since we have some fabulous deals for the next 3 months. Could you imagine 50 shows in the next 3 months! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! How cool would that be!

So much more to share, so little time! I will be back later to post more!!
