The Holidays Are Over...And Ross Mathews

Hello dear world

How are you ?? Well a new year came rolling in did you all enjoy your New Year's ?? We did. We all stayed home except my older sister who had to work. My folks and I and my nieces had some deviled eggs and we watched the Peach drop on television and then we stayed up and watched some of the Dick Clark's Rocking Eve and then we went to bed.

Earlier this morning I got up earlier than usual and started watching "The Holiday" when quite suddenly the power went out and Georgia Power had to come out and fix it. While the power was out my folks and I and my nieces worked on taking down our Christmas tree for the year. My dad then went out and got us some cheeseburgers from McDonald's for us to eat since the power was out. A little while later our power returned and started on our day.

A few minutes ago we all sat down for dinner which consisted of ham, rice,black eyed peas, collard greens and chitterlings. I didn't eat any of the collard greens or the chitterlings because I don't eat any of them. I also had a little bit of champagne to celebrate New Year's. Our dinner was pretty good and its sad to think that the holidays are over.

Of course tomorrow I have to head back to work once again and things will be pretty busy for my coworkers and I since everyone returns to work after the holidays. So how was your day my dear world ? Did you go out or anything ? I hope you all enjoyed your day and remember Christmas will return to us soon enough. You might want to start once again on your Christmas shopping I think my shopping will have to wait.

By the way my favorite guy Ross Mathews hasn't been around to share a new blog for the new year but I thought I would go ahead and share his link with you so you can check him out and meet him for yourself. Do drop over and meet him his blog will make you smile. Here is his link ---> Ross Mathews http://blog.nbc.com/ross_blog/ . Drop by and say hello to him. Thanks.

Happy New Year's everyone !!!!!!

Monae',  I had a great holiday season with the family and the grandchildren.
Too bad you have to go to work tomorrow but some one has to do that so I can collect my social sevurity check. Thank you for your contribution.
When I wake up tomorrow it will seem like it is Saturday to me. I love being retired since every day is like a Saturday to me.
Have a great 2008, Bill
