Happy New Year! It was quiet for us, went to a small local restaurant for dinner and then I was asleep long before the ball dropped May have had something to do with that second bottle of wine, LOL!!!

Hope everyone is healthy and happy as we enter 2013!

I had a wonderful but quiet New Year's eve and New Year's day. I spent the evening with Chuck and the family. After we put the kids to bed we watched X Men. I had never seen it before. As I was leaving around 9:30, the asked if I wanted to come over to watch the kids to give them a break on New Year's day. Of COURSE! I got there at 8am and we played and watched Elmo, Mickey Mouse and Doc McStuffins. Well, they watched, I read my Kindle.

I hadn't planned on staying longer but after lunch, the Chuck and Karen needed to do some grocery shopping, so I put the kids down for a nap and had about an hour and a half's peace and quiet. Jesse came down and said he couldn't sleep anymore. So we snuggled on the couch and he told me that he loved when I came over. AWWWWWWWWWW MELTMELTMELT.

When Zoey woke up, we went down the basement and played for a couple of hours. When Chuck and Karen came back, I gave the kids their big sugar cookies left over from Christmas and Chuck asked if I wanted to go to the playground with them. Karen wanted to run around the track. Chuck and I watched the kids play and talked about, what else? our next trip to Disney World next February.

After Karen finished her run, we all walked around the track 3 times and then Karen took the kids back to play while Chuck and I went around the track one more time.

When we got back Karen asked if I would stay for dinner. Now I don't like pasta, but I will eat Karen's stuffed cheese shells ANYTIME. They are so good and light.

After dinner we all went downstairs to play their new dance game on x box. Is there a pathetic category? Chuck did really well, but I was hopeless. Besides I can't jump around. I made Karen take my place. Oh my goodness, I never laughed so much. They both did so well. Chuck won most of the dances, but Karen did win one when the played YMCA. They were both pretty close though.

They let Jesse and Zoey try, but when Jesse couldn't do it perfectly within 5 seconds, he shut down. He just quits and stands there and looks straight ahead. I HATE when he does that. But no amount of coaxing could make him do anything. He was sulking and his next step was to his bedroom.

Karen tried everything and even told him to come back down and dance anyway he wanted, but he wouldn't. By that time it was bath and bedtime.

After that we watched X Men2. Now I can't wait to see the 3rd one. I got home around 9:45 and read until the news.

Oh here is my fancy sweater and earrings for New Year's Eve.

You look wonderful Mary!! Glad you had such a good time with the kids

Here is my birthday/Christmas present:



I have always loved this painting and it was on sale. It's called "Painter's Honeymoon" -it is so romantic! I spent too much but DH knew I have wanted it for so long so he told me to order it. Now I have to buy some accessories to to with it. One thing leads to another

The bottles of wine:

Thank you snappyd. I needed to hear that tonight.

What a beautiful painting! It is very romantic. I'm so glad that is now gracing your home. Who is the artist?

I'm not sure, I bought it from Ethan Allen. It always "spoke" to me, lol!

Now that family are starting to post pics of Christmas on Facebook I realize we missed a lot this year. Hope DH can get vacation next year (or retire) so we can go back to spending time with everyone.

I don't like this time of year, I can't wait til spring and the first hummingbird sighting!

Thank you shortbun for the name of the artist.

snappyd, I know what you mean about something speaking to you. I feel the same way about moonstone. Especially the necklace that my friend gave me. (I'm wearing it on in the New Year's eve picture.) It's almost as if it is a part of me. I have a moonstone ring that Ron bought for me ages ago and I wear it every time I go out. I'm always rubbing it and the necklace.

Thank you 4nana. I appreciate the compliment.

Hello everyone. I still have my tree up, but all the ornaments are off and put away. Chuck will come next week to take it down for me. This weekend I will be babysitting tomorrow night while they have a date night and Saturday morning to keep the kids occupied while they start taking down their decorations. Then I go home for lunch and a break while they go to a birthday party. Then back around 4 or 5 to watch the kids again while they finish with the decorations.

Karen has to go away all of next week for work. They are not happy but she has to go. Poor Chuck has double duty with the kids all week. She will be going away once a month for a week for the next few months. It's really tough on both of them. I told Chuck I am always available to give him a couple of hours break if he needs it.

I still have my computer room to put away all the decorations there. That will give me something to do next week.

Oh and I got some WONDERFUL news this morning. My cousin is now cancer free! He got the all clear and called me right away. He will be leaving for Florida in a few days and I won't see him until June for our family dinner. I may have to give him a call in a month or so to check up on him anyway.

I'm still doing battle with my weight. I did lose .4 this week. I ran out of veggies half way through and over indulged one day, but I'm still trying. I will NEVER go back to what I was.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. So HELLO everyone!

I did finally get my tree down and everything put away. I've been with my grandkids a few times. Monday I babysat with the kids while Karen did a few things. Then yesterday I babysat Zoey all day. She had a fever for a couple of days. She is teething and getting in four molars. Well, I lucked out and she didn't have a fever all day yesterday. She was feeling so much better and we played and watched cartoons all day.

I had to sit right next to her to watch some of her cartoons. "Grandmom, put away that (Kindle) and sit next to me to watch Sophia the first." There were two episodes that we watched twice. I have them etched on my brain now. The same with Doc McStuffins. I finally had to tell her that they weren't on anymore to save my sanity. LOL

Karen had told me that both kids asked when I was coming to see them over the weekend. Gosh that makes me feel so good.

It has been so COLD here the last couple of days. It didn't get above 20 here today. Right now it's back down to 14 again. I didn't venture out of my house today.

Oh, and over the weekend, I was going out on my back porch when I saw a fox! In the 40 years I've lived here, I've never seen one. He saw me and looked at me. I said HI and he sat down. I told him he was safe and that I wouldn't hurt him. He tilted his head like dogs do. Then I told him I had to go because I was getting cold. He got up and walked back into the woods.

Now it's not every day that you have a conversation with a fox! I swear he understood every word I said. LOL Poor thing had mange though. I hope he makes it.

It was Ron, that old fox!

Sorry I haven't posted either. I was at the Jersey house all week with no computer. Got three bedrooms painted; the hardest part was emptying all the closets and then putting everything back. We did get rid of a lot of junk!

It is FREEZING I got in the car last night and the pressure was low in all 4 tires from the cold. I was really nervous driving into the city to pick up DH, but his knees have been so bad I didn't want him to ride home on the subway in this cold weather.

I made a big pot of lentil soup yesterday. Then I roasted garlic and spread it on Italian bread with the soup - delicious. It tasted just like the garlic at the Yachtsman Steak House in Disney!

Hope everyone is having a good January!!
