See you next year!

For a challenging ( i.e. tense, stressful) year our Christmas was refreshingly challenge free. It’s always better when I don’t fight the holidays, but surrender. 

Christmas eve my mother took us out to dinner and afterwards we walked to look at the lights.  Rex was absent.  Once again he refused to “dress fancy” and I think he takes after his big brothers.  He would rather be at home and watch TV, eat simple food than get dolled up and go to a restaurant. So, the boys stayed at home. Vivien hews closer to me.  I love seeing her with her daddy.

This will be the first New Years Eve Mark hasn’t worked in over 30 years.  We are going to have a quiet, family celebration.  I’m looking forward to unplugging. So, I will see you all next year.

Thank you all so much for coming to Cool Mom in 2012.  It was a time of great changes here where I no longer had the economic backing to produce as many videos as I use to and I had to learn to drive this ship by myself.  Editing, shooting, etc.  I learned a lot, and have more to learn and explore.   Have a great New Years and here’s to a happy, healthy days in 2013.

So much to be grateful for.  Life is good.

 

Year’s End

Right, so I MEANT to throw this up at the end of the year. But there goes my organization. I’ll put that on my list of resolutions. (Determined face and stubby pencil I write.) Keep better track of what I taped and when I put it up. Okay, that’s done.

It all still works, but when you here references to “this year,” know that I mean ’09.

How did you feel at year’s end?
