Happy New Year 2010!!!

We welcomed the new year in the most delightful way...almost asleep! I did hear some early gunshots.  We live in kind of a redneck  rural area, so that was not cause for alarm.  Kodi didn't even bark!  I took dinner to the boys at the fire house and we had an enjoyable evening.  Even got to eat dinner without a call!  Watched a football game...the Chik-Fil-A bowl.  When did we get so many stupid bowl games?  Back when I was young (oh, here she goes again!) , there were only a few bowl games, like the Rose bowl, the Orange bowl and the Sugar bowl. Remember when going to a bowl game was a prize?  Now there are so many I think all the teams get to go to something! We watched Travis Pastrana jump his car 274 feet off a pier...that was pretty cool. I came home and finished my crocheted vest.  All that's left to do is block it and add buttons.  need to go dig through the button bins to find something suitable, or a trip to JoAnns might be in order! (Like I need an excuse!) I am excited to start my new sweater with the Boucle I picked up a few days ago.  I also have some scrubs cut out for my girl that need stitching today.  My thought was this week would be a blissful week of sewing.  It's Friday and I haven't even sat down at my machine yet!  Sometimes life gets in the way of our best laid plans! Maybe today will be the golden day!  I hope you are all enjoying New Year's Day and I will leave you with 2 words:  GO DUCKS!!!

In our paper today one of the editorial cartoons was a football player wearing a jersey sponsering the "Get a Life if You're Watching this Bowl Game." Because there are just too many of them out there!
Happy New Year!

My DH would wholeheartedly agree with you. Lots of bowl games, and other than the big ones, just a bunch of toilet bowls according to him.
