A New Year

Hello all! Well I am writing this from my new laptop, which is totally sweet. I had been using a desktop that was nine years old. I don't think that I had realized how slow it had gotten until I started using my new laptop. I am going to keep my old desktop for now so that I can use it for my son and so that I can store my files that are really important on two different computers. The only thing that I would really like to get for this laptop is a skin for the outside cover. The outside gets covered in fingerprints every time that I touch it.

So far I like Windows 7. I was a bit nervous about having the newest operating system from Windows, but so far I like it much better than Vista. My parents laptop has Vista on it and it sucks. So here is to hoping that it continues to work well.

My son and I had a great Christmas. He got all kinds of toys. It was funny though because he was convinced that Santa Claus had come, not because of the big present that had Santa's name on it, but because there was a little bit of the cookie left that he had left out. I thought that was hilarious. This year we did something different on Christmas morning. Usually I go out to my parents for Christmas morning and then run home so that I can get my son ready to go with his father. This year my parents suggested that we stay home and that they would come to my house. Let me tell you, that was wonderful! Usually I have to run around and hurry, but I was able to relax. It was great!

Well New Years was a slow one for me this year. I normally go out with my friends or have a party at my house. This year we all decided that we wanted to stay home. So for the first time I spent the night at home with my kid. It was also the first time that I let my son stay up until midnight. He had more energy than I did!

Well this year I am planning on taking a trip to LA for my 30th Birthday. I hope it pans out. Also this year one of my best friends is going to have a baby! She found out Christmas morning that she was preggo! So it will be wonderful, cause I will be able to help her and I get to go do all the fun stuff, shopping and such, without having to bring a newborn home!

Well I think that is all I have for now, but I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!


  1. Oh wow I didn't realize she found out on Christmas. That is so cool! She's gonna be big and prego for summer, ick! So did you eat some of the cookie to make him think Santa had come? Oh remember we talked about twins? You should check out a blog I follow. It's called Double the fun, and twice the confusion. She's the mom of twin girls. It's a really fun blog.

  2. Yeah she will be huge in the summer. If my calculations are right, she will be due sometime in July.

    Yes I took a huge bite out of the cookie... and he totally bought it! I can't believe that in just a few years I won't be doing the Santa thing anymore. Most kids lose that about 7 or 8, so I will be only doing it like 2 or 3 more times!

    I will check that blog out. Thanks for the info!

  3. Here's the link:


    Her husband is in the military and is in Korea. It's quite the interesting blog. Don't get offended that she talks about not lying to her kids about Santa lol. There's a video on one of her recent posts with her girls and it sounds soooo cute!
