Post Christmas Confession

I had intended to blog this week but something happened on Christmas day that prevented me .. it is called Kindle Fire.


I didn't ask for it, but my wonderful children gave me one and since then, that's all I've been doing in my spare time.  No blogging, no knitting, no quilting, no cooking, no cleaning, no laundry.  (okay, I did have to go to work, but that was about it.)  I've been playing this horribly addictive game called Angry Birds and I read a book.



Other than me becoming obsessed with the Kindle and the game, we had a wonderful day.  All of my children were here.  My DIL even made dinner so that I could play.  Here is what I looked like after spending a little time with my new love.


Here are some less ridiculous pictures of Christmas morning.


The boys with the requisite holiday guns.





Missing from these pictures are my children (ages 22 to 31) playing with their dart guns.  Dart fights kept them entertained all day and made it dangerous for those of us without shield or our own guns to even walk in the house.

Anyway, I have been slowly working on my list for 2012.  I wanted to have it done before today, but as long as I upload it tomorrow or in the next week or so, I'll be fine.  Shay had suggested that I make this a linky thing.  If anyone would like to join me, there will be a link available.  I'll try and check in weekly to update on what I've done.  and hopefully others will join in and update as well. 

So what is the "list" about?  The list is a bunch of things that I would like to do in the coming year -- rather than making resolutions that I probably won't keep, I make a list of goals, fun things to do, etc. , one for each week.  Not that one has to be done each week, but it's a nice number -- I suppose I could do 12 or 24 or something like that, but 52 sounds very ambitious.  Anyway, it wasn't my idea.  My niece, Katie, has been doing this for a while and she got me doing it two years ago.

I'm hoping that having others join me will give me the encouragement (push) I need to get more done than last year.  If you can't come up with 52 things feel free to come up with a number that will work for you and link up.

Looks like a very Merry Christmas at your house. Thanks for sharing.

I'm look forward to seeing your list. One thing a week? That's pretty ambitious.

Looks like lots of fun at your place for Christmas. It's always nice to see photos of the family.
I agree, one a week sounds very ambitious. More like one a month for me. Looking forward to your list and a linky thingy sounds good.

I never would have believed that I would enjoy reading on a kindle or e-reader until I had one so I completely get your fascination!

Angry Birds- Ive been avoiding that because I have a virtual village and bakery to run (Those games are addictive !)

Im working on my list of goals for 2012 and will have it ready to share in a few days ...count me in!
