A new year. A new ME! Right?

Well, Happy New Year, my blog family! Okay, I know it's like WAY late, but I have simply been busy these last few weeks. Hubs has been home more often so, of course I had to cut back on my computer time.

It was a busy New Year Holiday. This year on New Year's Eve was, I think, the first time that we were not at home bringing in the new year, and that's AMAZING in itself! Every year since we had our first child has gone the same way. Me staying up to see the ball drop, sometimes with the kids, and Hubs..... well, asleep. He's quite the party animal, you know.

This year was something new, which could very well be a good sign for the year.

This year we got together with some friends and friends of friends and brought in the New Year with a game of Charades and a toast. We had a good time, a safe time, a family night. It was wonderful. You know, when you have kids, priorities tend to change and all that going out and partying till it's 1999 doesn't appeal so much any more and it's great when you have a nice safe night inside with people you really enjoy to be around. Cuz I can tell ya from my partyin' days that walking around in a crowded club with every third brotha grabbin' your ass and sayin' "Hey Shawty (that's slang for "shorty" or "girl" for those that aren't familiar), let me holla at you for a minute." gets old real quick! Dodging fights, getting your new shoes stepped on and having some drunk clown spilling their drink on you sucks too, so it's better just to stay our butts in the HOUSE!

Sooooo Anywho... how many people have made their New Year's Resolutions? What are they... other then LOSE WEIGHT?

Yeah, that's one of mine this year and evry previous year since I can remember. Not really a resolution. Just a plan. I mean I have planned this SO many times, but I am at the point now where I am TIRED of people pointing out that I've gained weight! LIKE I DON'T ALREADY KNOW THAT! Thank you for pointing out my fat ass and ruining my day, better yet my LIFE, and sending me into a world of depression! Thank you for pointing out the obvious YET AGAIN and making me want to stuff a few more HO HO's down my throat, curl up in a corner and CRY!

Okay, sorry 'bout that, but for the weekend, we went to see Hub's family who live about 4 hours away. Well, AS USUAL, I had to hear "Kay, you done got FAT!" It's to be expected from older folks, I guess, because they think they can say anything, but I guess they really don't realize how it feels when you constantly point out what is already obvious to me.

So I woke up at 6am with the kids --who returned to school today "WHOO HOO!" -- and got on my treadmill. starting the year off GOOD! And I'm planning on buying this workout program I came across on an infomercial for Barry's Bootcamp. This has intrigued me so much that I have to have it for the new year! Have to get like those chicks on that video!

So, I'm looking to make a list of things "to do" this year. Not resolutions, things that I really have to do, like work on a degree.

Girl, you are too funny! Last year I was all about the losing weight thing, but it never happened, so I just decided I might as well just be happy being fat! LOL My husband pulled out the upopened Jilian Michaels workout video that I bought last year....maybe, just maybe I will open it. Yeah right!
Happy New Year and good luck with your to-do list!

Good luck with your (not-so) resolution... and people who point out your weight SO suck.

PREACH!

Good luck with your goals.

I'm serious about the weight loss this year. I can't be sick with diabetes in my 50s (like my parents), I'll have kids to chase!
