Auld Lang Syne

Did you ever wonder what this New Year’s song means? I have. I mean seriously, it’s one of those songs that you mostly hum, or better yet make up the words to and never figure out what it means. I promise, I thought it said, “And may old acquaintances be forgotten…” Yeah, I’m sweet like that.

Anyway, we’ve been really busy bees around this joint lately. Besides doing the normal running hither tither to and fro like anybody else during the holiday season, we’ve bought a new car for me finally, cleaned up endless puppy oopsies, had fun with all our new toys (and when I say our I actually mean Lilla’s!), made tons of yummy creations and eaten even more, gained like 40 lbs, made a buck or two, spent all those bucks and even more, let the laundry pile up to the ceiling, kissed at midnight on New Years and just enjoyed life.

All that to say, I really have had good reasons for not being ever present in blogland for the past month.

How were your holidays? Did you make any good resolutions?

I actually enjoy making resolutions. I usually enjoy breaking them too, but that’s another blog for another day. 🙂

I really do want to start excercising again. I am really not largely overweight, honestly, 10 lbs would about do me, it’s just getting motivated to do it. I’m way too cheap to join a gym so it’s almost always been work out videos for me. My problem is that I’ve never found one I’ve liked since Sweatin’ to the Oldies. I’m so not kidding people. I really wish I was, but I’m kind of silly like that. It’s low key and has great music, which is of importance to me. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it for the DVD player so I haven’t had access in ages. Well, that all changed today people. While over at my in-laws this infomercial came on for it. Holy cow, my husband was on the honker so fast…he understands you see. I have been pining for that old Richard Simmons for years. So, two weeks from now, Richard and I have a date. 🙂

OK, it’s time for me to hit the hay. I can’t wait to find out how all of your holidays went and what Santa brought you!

    Happy New Years, Amy!

    Congrats on the new car! I’m glad you and your family had a wonderful holidays. We were really busy around here. Today was the first day, the kids went back to school, and I feel everything going back to normal.

    Happy New Year!

    I want to lose 20 lbs (if not more, but I have to be realistic) and not to yell.

    Wish me luck!

    Hi Amy. If I were to make some resolutions I would make them realistic so that I would have a chance at achieving them… such as; gain a little weight, work out a little less, and be a little more in debt. Just kidding!

    Thanks for your prayers. I trust a big God who knows what He is doing even though going through the storm is not fun.

    Take care,

    I’m dying to hear how the Richard Simmons videos are! I’ve always liked the Winsor Pilates series if good ‘ole Richard doesn’t come through! 🙂

    Ok, maybe the Chipmunks movie wasn’t that bad. I was just in a mood. 🙂

    I hope you are staying warm. We’re needing some new peanut pix!

    Take care,

    I saw the Richard Simmons infomercial too, and got totally pumped about it! I love those videos!

    I didn’t really make any resolutions this year, but most of the time I don’t. I’m kind of a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of girl I guess!
