Wow, can you believe we are already into the seventh year of 2000? Time just seems to fly by so fast.
Yesterday, my kids and I spent the afternoon at my BF's house with his mom and brother celebrating Christmas since they were all sick last week. My BF is so domestic and had a ham, turkey, cheesy potatoes, and candied carrots. His mother is an absolute doll. She's been battling lymphoma for well over six years but never, ever complains. I managed to get a picture of them. His brother is his polar opposite and wasn't as cooperative.
We went to Day's Inn for a couple of hours and a couple of drinks. Yay, I wasn't sick this year. I got my party hat and all the New Year doo-dads and got my midnight smooch. Then we went home, lit his fireplace and watched some movies.
Today was pork and sauerkraut at my mom's house which is a tradition in this neck of the woods.
Now we start a new year with dreams and hopes. I'm determined to quit smoking. Cold turkey is not working, and I can't take Wellbutrin because I had a concussion a few years back, and Wellbutrin causes seizures in those who have had concussions. I need to call Blue Cross to see if they will cover the newest drug for smoking cessation then check with the doctor to see if it will work with my other meds. I'm buying a patch tomorrow. Anyway, I've cut the amount of smokes in half today.
No other resolutions but I also plan to eat healthier and get back on track with the sodium I consume and hope to drop about 20 lbs.
Curious me: What are the food traditions for NY's day for other parts of the country and the UK?
Blessings! Thanks, Missie, for the siggy!
