HAPPY NEW YEAR

Well another new year is here. A time to start over and begin again like a blank page waiting to be written on. Sometime's in life it is way to easy to just throw up our hands and say "THAT'S IT , LIFE IS JUST TO HARD ,AND I DON'T WANT TO TRY ANYMORE." So I guess my goal for this coming year is just to take it a day at a time. Cut it up into bite sized pieces, that will be easy to swallow. surely I can do that, one day at a time, or even one hour at a time. We have so much to look forward to in the coming year. Starting with three new babies that will be born into our family this year. We are off to a good start. My brother for Christmas is redoing the ceiling in our family room, and patching all the holes in my walls, that is such a great gift. I am so glad to be getting that done. I also got a new kitchen faucet, and the taps fixed so that they do not leak. I won't have to make sure that the faucet is not over a cup or a bowl so I won't have to listen to the steady DRIP..DRIP..DRIP. Thank you so much Gary and NaDene. He is also helping replace the sump pump in our basement. Wouldn't you know that would go out during the holidays.
Tonight we had a big LUAU at Stacy's house. Why would she have a Luau you ask in January? Surprise.....we are going to HAWAII. A lot of things that have been happening over the past few weeks are now making alot of sense. My brother-in-law, and sister-in-law in conjunction with all my kids have been planning this trip for over 2 months. We my husband and I were the only ones who were not in on the planning, I must be getting pretty dense, to not have seen anything funny going on. Even my boss was in on it. They have really tried to think of everything, and I think they have. They even had made arrangements for replacements to do our shifts in the Temple. So Early Tuesday morning we will leave for Hawaii and be gone for 8 days. I was so stunned, all I could think of was I don't have any vacation time coming in my new job, but not to worry, they had taken care of that also. Sooo...come Tuesday morning we will be flying off to Hawaii.
A BIG.... THANK YOU.... AND I LOVE YOU.... to Tom and Gayle, Mike and Marge, and all my children, you are the best. I still can't believe that no one let the cat out of the bag, and they managed to keep it a secret all this time. I AM TRULY BLESSED.
