Bringing in the 2012

Hello peeps.  Bringing in the new year was a blast..  We had some fun and some games and something to eat and drink.. LOL.. Yes most people did that last night.. But we dont drink that often meaning Jeff and I. The other two drink way more often.  But I had 2 1/2 glasses of wine but I drank lots of water and ate lots of crackers with summer sausage as I drank my wine.. Jeff on the other hand.. He had to be helped to bed.. It was funny. I diluted something for the girls and they got colored seven up..  Us  four adults played a card game called nuts. Its solitaire with 2-4 people. you play off each others cards. Its fun.. 

Then today I have been catching up on cleaning.. I got like six loads of laundry done and most of the dishes. Brianca said she would have done the dishes but I was half way through them when she said it.  I felt I needed to do something more around the house since we have a three day weekend.  Jeff and Brianca went to Appleton to get her boyfriend. His car is being fixed and hasnt come back from the shop yet. 

The girls didnt get much of an x-mas this year but what they did get was great for them..  They got a build a bear each from my mom. they each got a Hello Kitty. Bris is pink and she named her Pinky and Koras was white  and she named hers snowflake i believe or something with snow in it..  They each got a small paint by number but you have to mix paint. Not to happy about that one.  but we will manage. They got dollar tree puzzles. they got from Brianca some flavored nail polish, some build your own power balls, make your jewelry, oh some lip stuff. They love watching her put her lip stuff on so she got them some kiddy lip stuff.  they had a decent x-mas just not alot from us. 

I gave my phone a bath. I had it in my pants pocket and told brianna to go look for it last weekend and she came up told me she couldnt find it. I took her at face value and just threw all the clothes in the washer. Well lets just say Jeff isnt to happy with me.. That is an understatement really..  Things happen and its my fault the phone got washed..  It works but I cant text because I cant see the screen really well and I need to take it to the place we bought it from and see if they might have a solution for me.

The girls are getting ready for bed and I am going to sit down and crochet for a while tonight i think. I have gotten caught up on school work, So I deserve to sit back and relax because on Tuesday we start school again.  We dont see our Monday night teacher till next Monday the 9th. So we get back to the grind on Tuesday. Not sure if I am looking forward to it or not now having two weeks off.. I am. I  cant wait. I have been working on understanding Tuesday night class better over the last few weeks. 

We are working on  binary numbers and how computers work and understand those numbers.  Its difficult but I am enjoying the challenge.Never thought I would understand going back to school or finding the time. But we have and found the time to even go out every other week and work alone on home work we dont understand together..Go out for coffee or a soda and then plug numbers in we dont understand together.

ok peeps. I am off to go crochet for a bits. I will try and make rounds tomorrow..  Happy New Year and 2012...
