Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year. I can't believe that it is already 2007.

Two thousand and seven marks my ten year anniversary as a college graduate. I went on for two more years to get my Master's so it doesn't technically mark my anniversary as leaving the college life to go out into the real world, but it is a milestone nonetheless.

It feels like yesterday...

Ten years before ten years ago I was eleven years old and in the sixth grade. It felt as though it took a hundred years to get from there to a college graduate but it only feels like a minute to get from a college graduate to here. Why is that?

We had a nice new year's celebration. We thought we were going to spend a cozy evening at home but at the last minute we were invited to a party we couldn't pass up. We got home from the party around 10:00-ish so we could put the monsters in bed and then the husband and I battled it out on the Trivial Pursuit board.

A Rockin' New Years- Reject day 26


I won 3-1!!!

I won by default because we wanted to move on to *ahem* other things *ahem* rather than finish the game.

I was hoping the kids would sleep in because they got to bed so late but apparently God hates me because they did that weird kid thing where the later they go to bed, the earlier they wake up and I spent most the day in a haze- just playing on the computer and breaking up their wrestling matches until it was time for the Gator Bowl to start.

My alma mater- West Virginia University- battled Georgia Tech in the Gator Bowl and there were several moments when I thought we were going to get our Mountaineer butts handed to us on a platter but lo and behold, we pulled through to victory.

Let's Go Mountaineers!

I missed most of the game because Gavin wanted to go outside and play and I wanted to indulge him. I remember when I was a kid and my dad would spend his weekends watching football and I HATED IT! I hated it with a passion. I didn't understand football and I thought it was boring and for the life of me I never got why when he told me there were only two minutes left in the game, it would take 30 minutes for the game to be over.

I love watching me some Mountaineer football but I love watching me in this:

a lot more.

I know it all goes to fast... and it really is the little things.

Happy New Year, friends.

Amanda.
