So I decided to do some maintenance on my blog today, and started looking at the blogs of my friends. By the time I got done, I found 12 blogs that I didn't even know I was missing.. There may be more, so please, if you know of somebody that has a blog, and I know them... I do like to keep in touch.

Playin' catch up

Okay, so I know that it has been ages, but so much has happened that I thought I had better catch up.

I'm still waiting on the pictures, but I actually won an award for work last weekend. For the year 2006, I was the "Full-Time Employee of the Year"... So not expecting that. I won this really cool little glass globe thing that sits on my desk. It was really fun.

By the way... sometime this summer a group of us should get together and go to Mahoney State Park for the day (maybe camp too). The all you can eat seafood and prime rib buffet is actually pretty good (and not terribly priced) and the melodramas are kinda entertaining (although the one we saw, not so great for children).

Speaking of summer - the countdown is on for Orlando... 10 weeks and 4 days... (Of course I'm counting, are you nuts????)

I got to see Orron and Irene's baby this weekend. She is so flipping cute, and she makes the funniest noises. I just love cuddling her.

The clean sweeping of my house has begun. I should have taken before and afte pictures, but suffice it to say that I cleaned out the bedroom closets this week, and its a little scary how few clothes I actually have.

So Wendy is my inspiration.. She told me last night that she can fit into her wedding dress.. I am so impressed. I would love to be able to do that (fit into my wedding dress, not hers... I'd have to be anorexic or something to fit into hers...). New resolve to get back on the diet.

Katie's birthday

Today is Katie's seventh birthday. She had school during the day, and then her Uncle Bubby picked her up. Grandma got her some clothespin dolls, and we had a special birthday dinner with cake afterwards.

Her birthday party is on Saturday, so stay tuned for more news...

Good Stuff....

I'll admit, sometimes it is hard to think of good stuff to write about.

The world hands us opportunities to look pessimistically on each day, thus, I choose to blog about the greatness of my life.

I will admit, I do suffer from depression, so what better way to start out a blog, and a year, by thinking of the great things that can come from each day.

Today is no exception!

1) I am grateful that DISH Network bypassed the FOX feed and we were still able to watch the Huskers play football. This kept my husband happy, and I got a nap!

2) I am grateful that my children were home from school. I got to spend time with them.

3) I am grateful that my work was closed today. I got to stay home.

4) I am grateful that it snowed this weekend. I love it when the world is blanketed in white. (AND I especially love when my girls shovel snow and scrape my car!!!)

5) I am grateful that each new year, I have the opportunity to set new goals for myself and work toward them.

So, this year, I am going to keep in better touch, find things to be happy about, and make myself a better person!
