WEEKLY WRAP-UP

WEEKLY WRAP-UP
12/29/2008-1/4/2009

WEATHER: it was dry most of the week, chilly in the mornings but beautiful during the days, reaching 80 a few times.
.
SUNDAY SERMON: I didn't make it to church, I overslept a little bit.
.
LIFE LESSONS: quitting caffeine at a time with very dry Santa Ana conditions is NOT a good thing.
.
FAVORITE MEAL: I was really spoiled last week and didn't cook at all. I just heated up leftovers.
.
TREASURED MOMENTS: This was the first New Year's Eve in about 20 years that I didn't drink!!!
.
THINGS I READ: Pillars of the Earth, The Christian in Complete Armor
.
WHAT WE/I WATCHED: Dark Knight, football.
.
PLACES WE WENT: to the small mall, to the big mall, KT was at Jade's until Wed., AC was at Aunt P's until Wed.
.
BUDGET SAVERS/BUSTERS: The kids used their Christmas money wisely and got quite a few good deals on clothes.
.
BLESSINGS: My kids behaved great! The few days of quiet time I got without them. Getting them back.
.
CHALLENGES: trying to quit caffeine
.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: I didn't drink on New Year's Eve
.
FAMILY HAPPENINGS: The kids were both gone until Wed so I pretty much did nothing but undecorate the first 2 days of the week. We went to the big mall, Ontario Mills on Sat, just the 3 of us and had a lot of fun.

That seriously is a cool T-shirt. I'd have to fight my son for it.

My alma matter has expanded and renovated so much I hardly recognize it anymore.

You rock for not drinking on New Years Eve. You probably had a great time too. My family had so much fun playing games, and not an ounce of alcohol was consumed. :-)

I didn't drink on NYE either; although for different reasons I'm sure.

Heating up leftovers is my favorite kind of cooking. ;o)
