My blackboard sign in the kitchen is saying it so it must be true...Happy New Year and welcome 2012...you hold so many possibilities. 2011 wasn't bad, but I'm hoping for some real change this year. I'm going to give it the old college try to get my health in good shape. The surgery dept. had made a nice rule a few years ago that said anyone over the age of 55 didn't have to take call. It worked out great until I turned 55...that made 5 people not taking call in the dept. and all of a sudden the "younger" set through a fit. They complained to everyone and together with a Director of Nursing who has a very noticeable dislike for our surgery group, the rule was cancelled and now we have to be on call again. So I'm going to need all the stamina I can muster and it will take a change in diet and exercise and a mental "I can do this" attitude. Wish me luck on this one! I hope everyone has had a fun weekend and here's just a quick recap of mine.
Last night Jack and I headed over to a "wild"..hahah...birthday party for this sweet lady. Jan's a retired nurse that worked in our recovery room for many years. She has been working since she retired for Wal-Mart..which she loves! Funny girl! She turned 80 last night and we enjoyed spending some time with her and other friends and co-workers who were there. See, when you're my age going to a party for an 80yr old is how you spend New Years Eve..Party on! Happy Birthday Jan!
After Church we came home and got the grill ready for some ribs that we traditionally do on New Years day. I also made sauerkraut and black eyed peas for good luck because Lord knows we need it! Phil and his little sweeties came over to celebrate with us. These two girlie kiddos can put down the ribs!
We also made some homemade strawberry icecream for dessert. Now, that was yummy!
Before we had the icecream we did the ceremonial bread cutting to see who would find the coin....Jack went first...then we all took turns until finally a winner!
Congrats Lexi Loo!
The girls finished up their icecream and headed for home. All was quiet at the Pines.
Awwww....does someone need a hug? Hope your New Year celebrations were fun and the new year brings many adventures and smiles. Tomorrow will mean "take the decorations all down" day....whew, last year really did fly by fast!
Welcome to the Pines! I'm a wife of many, many years with my Chiropractor hubbie, the Mom to 4 all grown up boys/now men...and Grandmother to 9 super Grandkiddos. I work in surgery and my simple adventures are here for your amusement..can you take it?
