Happy New Year! I wrote “2008” for the first time yesterday, time to get used to it! We spent the big night having a family Monopoly tournament. Fun times!:) I am also finally wrapping up vacation today (Wednesday). This might have been the most relaxing, enjoyable time off we’ve ever had! Ironically I think it’s because we kind of took a vacation from going on vacation. We really didn’t go anywhere this time. We drove up to MI for an overnight stay to see friends at their cabin, but that was it! Every other time I’ve been off we’ve either taken a big trip, moved, or I was having a baby!:) I was happy to discover how great it is to just lounge around together with no commitments.
Last week we went ice skating in Akron. What a memory that was! Jim is from Florida so he still hasn’t done some of the traditional snow/winter activities like snowmobiling and downhill skiing. Getting him on the rink was a first along with the boys. We had a ball though and after Grant got over his fear of falling (actually terror would be a better word) it was great! Jim and I also saw a movie. I don’t remember the last time we went to the theater on a date but that’s another great perk about vacation! We saw National Treasure, it was good.
I am going to do a review of my new Shark Steam Mop soon (hopefully today). We also got the new Dyson vacuum too! I am one happy cleaning mom, what more could a girl ask for?!:) I LOVE the Dyson, it is a dream to operate and it’s much easier to maneuver, and quieter than our old vac.
That’s pretty much it I think. Enjoy the first week of 2008!
