  • They say that whatever you do on New Year's day that you will continue doing throughout the year. I am not sure how I feel about that-we did watch lots of football, spent time at Grannymom and Grandpa's house, I had a nap and the kids had plenty of down time. However, we sure weren't productive at all today. Maybe that will come tomorrow or Monday.
  • Yesterday there had been a sale at our Kroger on allergy friendly chocolate chips. I bought some for one friend that used them, but I didn't realize that another friend can use them so early this morning Robby went to pick up 20 more bags. That was fun-I love a good deal even if it is not for me.
  • We then met up at Grannymom's house for the almost start of the Hogs game. While we were there, Campbell and Keaton showed me to how to use my new watch from Christmas. It will be nice again that my wrist will buzz when I get a text so I will hopefully not miss as many things.
  • We had black eyed peas and hog jowl for our New Year's Day meal. I am sure that will bring us good luck, health and wealth as it has in year's past. After eating, there was apple dumplings to celebrate my birthday.
  • I had a few presents to open-a t-shirt from Magnolia, laundry baskets and a planner. I have never had a planner before so this is a new thing for me. This afternoon I spent about an hour filling things into it-that was really pretty exciting to me. 
  • I then went ahead and made my list for tomorrow and even started on a few things-then I realized that it is still Saturday and tomorrow is just Sunday. That is pretty crazy and wonderful.
  • The boys have been on their devices all day long-Whitman his ipad and Anderson and Graham their xboxs. This morning I barely overheard Whitman asking his brothers about some games. I wonder if he will ever decide that he needs a gaming system?
