Friday Again

Seems like I just posted and a week has already flown by!

I was going to post a Friday Fill In but they aren't up yet so maybe later?

Rick had surgery this week so I think that is why my week has gone by so fast. He had multiple skin cancers removed, all went well and now he's just trying to recover. We will get pathology reports next week as well as the stitches will come out.

I finished the books I was reading last account and have moved on to the next book in the Yada Yada series - Yada Yada Gets Tough.

I really want to scrapbook, I haven't done that in a couple of months but I feel like things keep getting in the way - if I would just step away from the computer for awhile I would have the time! Too much Pinterest and Facebook I think! Oh well!

What I Am Reading

It's a new year and I want to try and read more books, I only read 10 books in 2011! I am currently reading 2 books which is something I've never done. Now that I have an ereader I have a book going on it and also I have a regular book going. On the NOOK I am reading The Chick Palace by Leslie Davis Guccione and my regular book is The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson. I know some people set goals to read 100 books or more but I would have to read every spare minute to be able to accomplish that kind of goal and I usually just read a couple of hours in the evenings. I like to do other things too! I set a goal of 15 books this year and I think I will be able to meet that goal pretty easily. We shall see!

And...here we go!

1. Discussions about politics make me nervous.
2. When I leave my kids & grandkids it's always hard to say goodbye.
3. I think it's time to go to bed, I am up way too late.
4. Thinking about the new grandbaby that is coming puts a smile on my face.
5. Maybe sometime I will take my dream vacation to the New England states in the Fall.
6. God gives me strength.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting some sleep, tomorrow my plans include no big plans, maybe spend some time in my scraproom and Sunday, I want to go to church, have a relaxing afternoon and get some reading done!

Happy New Year!

Oh how time flies! I can't believe I haven't been on here for over a month! December is such a busy month though. We took a vacation to visit Randy and his family the first week of December, Lori, Gabriel & Kique went too. We got to see Molly in the Nutcracker, what a treat! She was awesome. It was our first time to see the Nutcracker EVER! We are hooked and will make a point to see the Nutcracker as an annual Christmas tradition from now on! Even if it's just on t.v.! Anyway, that was our Christmas present from Randy and his family, an awesome gift I tell you!
We celebrated Christmas with Lori & Gabriel on the 28th of December because they were with his family over the weekend. Rick & I had a quiet Christmas here at home with our Chi Mytzi. It was a wonderful Christmas overall and we enjoyed our time with the kids even if it wasn't on the 25th.:)

Now on to 2012. We went to MD Anderson in Sugarland yesterday to start with Rick's skin cancer treatment, they took some biopsies and now we are waiting for the results. I am hoping & praying he gets this all healed up and feeling better this year.
Yesterday was also our oldest granddaughter Molly's 7th birthday!  S E V E N! Yes, time does fly!

So many things to get done ahead of me but I am going to take it one day at a time. I have lots of new books to read on my NOOK that Rick gave me for my birthday/Christmas gift. I want to accomplish some scrapbooking this year too, I constantly feel behind in my scrapping goals.  Oh Well.
I don't make new year resolutions anymore but I do have some goals I am going to try to meet anyway - get healthier (in other words - lose some weight!LOL!), get scrappier, read more, get closer to God and allow Him to grow my spirit. Well, those are a few of my goals so we'll see what the year brings.
If you are reading this I wish you & yours a HAPPY 2012!:)
