Shingles and a Happy New Year

If you've ever suffered from Shingles, you will know why I have felt horrible for the past month. 

Shingles stink!

Add a cold on top of that.....and I am down for the count.  I've never felt this bad for this long in my life.  I've had an achy, fever feeling for a month now and can't shake it.  I've missed two weeks of work and I feel horrible about it.  

We are spending a quiet night at home for New Years, just how I like it.  I'm really a homebody so it doesn't bother me at all to spend the evening with the boys and the hubby watching football.

We fixed hamburgers, fried potatoes and corn for dinner (the hubs request).  We also had chips with French Onion and Spinach dip, so bad yet so good.

We bought two bottles of sparkling grape juice for the boys to drink at midnight.  Small Fry loves the sparkling grape juice, the last time he had it was at our wedding three years ago. He probably had five glasses of it. He felt so grown up drinking it!

I'm not making any resolutions this year because they tend to never stick anyway-ha!  I am going to say that 2013 is going to be a great year. 2012-I will not miss at all. It ranks among the top three worst years behind the year my Dad died and the year of my divorce. Such a hard year concerning my Mom and having to make very difficult decisions, which I'm not good at doing at all.

I will say I would never have made it without my husband this year. What a rock he has been throughout this hard time. He never let's anything get him down and keeps me calm when I feel like I'm going crazy. Thank god for my sweet husband.

I wish all of our friends and family a Happy New Year!!!  May 2013 be the best year yet!

You say it's your birthday....

Yesterday was my 41st birthday. 

It really seemed like just another day.  We had two basketball games in different cities so we spent the evening watching basketball and traveling.  The one difference was.....

We went in my new SUV!!!!  We got a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  I am in love!!!

It has so many gagdets, I'll never figure them out!
