Here's the "short version"...
Thursday: HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!! We had a group of great friends over to help us celebrate. We DID make it to midnight (woo hoo). I had my camera out to take a few pics to share, but somewhere between the Sweet Tea Vodka and the "F"ed up Uno... I forgot.
Friday: Our plans were canceled because my sister in law got sick. HOWEVER, we did not complain because the yucky rainy weather was a great excuse to stay in. Besides... the hubby had a headache (hmm ~ wonder if he got it from his "friend" Jack Daniels?)
Saturday: I was put to work. The tree came down, the outside Christmas lights came down, it was all packed up and the holiday 20 boxes and bins went back into the attic until next year.
AGAIN... I forgot to take pics of the house and tree.
Sunday: oh Sunday... I was a church slacker(she says ashamed). So I watched me some church online.. it was live! (who knew?)
Anthony on the other hand started on the loft bed. Justin wants it for his birthday and we decoded to build it. THE PLAN is that it will be completely suspended except for the 1 post on the outside corner. This was in lieu of a cable going into my ceiling. (Thank you Bob Villa)
Here he is cutting wood...
While daddy was occupied... the kids and I got ready and for some reason allowed my friend to drag us out to the Manatee viewing site. I'm sorry... I was born and raised in Florida and it is FREAKIN COLD out there right now!
Either way we went. This pic obviously shows my excitement...
We were all bundled up but still complaining "IT'S COLD"!!
Notice the not so thrilled look on Justin's face...
You really couldn't see the Manatees in the picture I took, but the sharks and stingrays but on quite a show for us...
Before we left... we stopped in the Manatee museum to defrost.
We headed home via Sonic for my LAST route 44 diet vanilla coke. (I miss them already)
I scurried along to cook dinner and get the angels in bed before 9:00. (most of you know why)
It's because up until last night I was a D-Mom chat virgin... WELL NOT NO MORE!!!
How fun was that? SUPER FUN!!! You all are NUTS! In a good nutty way of course.
I am glad I was able to join in the fun... I've been missing out.
So on that note... all I have to say is: D- Moms ROCK!!!
