Howard, New Years Eve & a Goal~

Hi friends~

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! I've missed ya'll so MUCH!

Well, here I am sitting in my favorite my favorite place in the whole world~ HOME. For those of you haven't met Howard, please allow me to introduce you to my pc Howard. Although he looks a little femine with his butterfly wallpaper....that's just a little part of me. :) Most days when I'm blogging and catching up with all of you this is where I sit~ unless it's too cold. Which is rare here. Howard, my cup of coffee & YOU that's my morning ritual. I have so enjoyed getting to know all of you the last few months!

New Years Eve we had tamales, salsa & queso ( 3 of the main food )

We wore our party hats~

daughter, mammaw, my cousin & me

We ate a ton of food~ made smores & chocolate fondue w/strawberries for dipping. Would you believe we where all in bed asleep by 10:00p.m? This is the first year we did not stay up until midnight but my mister had to work at 4:00am New Years Day & I guess we where all exhausted so we went to sleep. :)

Now, I'm not usually a New Years Resolution kind of girl~ my dear friend Cindy has set 'goals' this year and I think that is a good term to use. So, I have set a few goals~here is one of them. :)

I pride myself on home & work organization. I believe there is a place for everything & everything in it's place. So, why do I have the closet of doom? I have tons of pictures that need to be organized, put in books or framed that are stored in our guest room closet. Most are in little storage boxes but there are many in the Walgreens boxes just waiting for something to be done with them....all I've done for many months now is stack them on top of one another. Trust me when I tell you this is going to be no small is going to be SCARY. I'm so horrified by this announcement ~ I can not show you a picture. My goal is to get ALL of our pictures more Closet of Doom!

But, please tell me I am NOT the only person with this issue. :)

Have a beautiful day!

Hugs~ J.

EDIT: Where is Buffie? I was making my morning rounds and no Buffie?? I miss you, Buffie! I hope everything is okay. Sue is gone, too? This is just not acceptable.

I know.. I miss Buffie too!! But she said she had to have a little break! :-/ Hope she'll be back though!!

Good luck on your photos.. I have a few "old films" I need to send for developing.. other than that I usually put the photos in the photo-albums as soon as I get them home (if not I would have had the same problem)

Good morning! I have a cabinet of doom myself so you are certainly not alone.

I don't know where Buffie is I haven't checked on her today. The other day she had a post about ruining a friend's dress and the next day it was gone saying she needed a "much needed blogging break." Now today I guess she's gone. I don't know but that worries me. I have the opposite problem as you. If it goes in the closet it's organized (at least my closets, not the kids!) but I tend to get clutter all over. I hate it but I've learned to overlook the clutter. It's getting better as the kids get older and in five months I'll have only one child at home who is a neat freak so I think the house will stay much more tidy. I too, like things organized. My sewing room and office are meticulous that way but it seems that they're the only rooms I can control! Have a great week and let me know if you hear from Buffie. Cindy P.S. I like your goal too!

AUGGHHH, I just went there and she's deleted her blog! Let me know if you hear anything. Picket deleted her's once too but came back so maybe Buffie will come back too. Cindy

Jessica, I loved your girls night out New Years Eve celebration. Well.. most of my pictures are really well organized. But, I do have a small pile of framed pictures on the shelf in Larry's closet. It has been bothering me lately. It is one of my goals to do something with them. I also use the term goal.

Buffie deleted her blog. Because she has so much to catch up with. I hope she comes back. Both Picket and I have done the same thing in the past. It didn't work for me. I missed everyone.. too much!!!!!
Hugs, Terrie

I still have not done my seed order...and it should be arriving at this time of year...must get it done! I am fighting off some child spread bug right now..and just don't care much about anything!
Love you ladies!

Joy said...

I suffer from the same pictures whoas you have...I need to get with it and organize them. You all look like you had a great time on New Years! Happy 09!

Queenie~ said...

What a wonderful New Year's Eve with your loved ones. It sounds so fun and delicious too! I wish you much success in organizing your can do it sweetie!

About Sue, she is taking a break from blogging, she said she may return to blogging in a few months. She will still be around to visit everybody...she just won't have her blog up and running anymore for now. I'll email her and tell her you were asking about her and that you missed her. Oh, i just remembered that Her home is still on RMS, so she can be reached there also.
Have a great day Jessica!
