Happy 2011!

Howdy and Happy New Year from deep in the heart of Texas.  And a very Happy Birthday to my niece, Keidra about whom I've been thinking all day but I forgot to call nonetheless!  I know I've been MIA for a little while (it's only been since just before Christmas, but seems like forever)...thanks for all of you who've left warm wishes and comments on my "old" posts.  I still log on and check for comments even if I'm not so busy with new posts.  Right now I'm supposed to be reviewing my daughter's math homework and finishing the dishes so that I can get my buns in bed by 11:30, but I don't think I'm going to make that deadline.
Tomorrow is my "post-hire assessment" for my new job which will begin on the 31st of this month.  I'm excited and anxious and rrying desperately to get a few more things in order (like my entire house and life-LOL) before I'm a once again a working woman.  I take comfort in knowing that my life was much more "structured" shall we say when I worked full time outside of the home simply because it HAD to be.  Of course, I only had one little child at the time and a grandmother who helped care for him when the Hubs and I couldn't.  Boy have things changed.
I'm still working on getting organized.  I have to renew my zeal for the Fly Lady and get back into her routine and make it my own.  I treated myself to a couple of her products for Christmas and have yet to break them out and put them to use.
Here's hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday and your year is off to a splendiferous start with pleny of new and exciting opportunities (and recipes) before you. Until next time...
