Happy New Year!

After a breakfast of eggs over easy and ham, we dumped our boat into Lake Mead for its first run of the year. John and Maggie joined us for the fun. After a lunch of warm tomato soup, delicious turkey sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce, a side of pickles and sweet Italian peppers, topped off with hot coffee, we headed home. Down went the Christmas lights around the house and we started working on our first project of the year--painting the smaller living room (Havi was great company). I think it's gonna be another great new year!

Johnny pulls the boat out of the garage.

Gassing up!

Picked up Johnny's mom and dad.

Out on the lake again--hot summers or cooler winters!

The lake was so calm and quiet.

On our way home on the I-515. I love that you can pretty much see the Strip from almost anywhere and it looks beautiful at night just as much as it does during the day.

We started painting the smaller living room while Havi supervised.

I did not make any resolutions this year. The way I see it, every day I wake up is a chance to better myself, I don't need to wait until the new year. Each day, I try to:
*eat less salt (this is the hardest because an abundance of it is in the foods I love like beef jerky and Tabasco)
*drink more water
*take my daily vitamin and extra calcium
*rest more (on the new Sealy Posturepedic we bought ourselves for Christmas)
*make more time for physical activity (nevermind, why try to fool myself?) We did get ourselves bikes for Christmas so we can ride around together. Mine and Johnny's. (By the way, he's been jumping it and pulling tricks and has already scraped up his new bike [rolling my eyes])

My personal hobby goals I continually strive to do is to read more (not including textbooks) and scrapbooking.

That's good enough for now. Time to prepare for work tomorrow, after a nice long week off since Christmas, it's time to get back to reality. I'll say it again, I think it's gonna be another great year!! :)
