BrRrRrRrRrRr are you ready for some really cold temps? Mind you, today it was 70! The rain is arriving as I type, then this is what we are expecting the next couple of days......
Told ya!! I absolutely love the cold knees, not so I have a nasty cough/sinus that doesn't make for a happy combination! But it is what it is. Even my ears hurt and I have not had an earache since....well I don't even know when! Doctoring myself with Nyquil and breathing treatments...praying I feel better tomorrow. I have been in and out of bed all weekend. So stay warm folks...and stay indoors if you have that option!!!!

What an awesome way to start off our new year with a BIG win last night from our New Orlean's Saints! And they said we couldn't win on the the elements...HA! Now onto Seattle. I hope the momentum keeps up and we go all the way to the Super Bowl! You will never find more true blue fans than our Saint's Fans! I know its a team effort but it sure helps when you have leaders like these two...

So have you made some new years resolutions? I only made one and that is to try not to worry
so much anymore...I told my kids my new motto is "It's not my worry". They don't think I can
stick to it....because they know how much I worry. But I am determined to do it!

Resolutions never really made much sense to me...because we normally make some that
are unrealistic, so we set ourselves up for a let down and failure. So if you do make
a resolution...make it attainable or resonable.
You can do it!!!

This is going to be a HUGE year for me...
I will be turning 60 <gasp> in 4 months from now.
How the hell did that happen???? I remember turning 40 like it
was yesterday. So much has changed in my life since I was 40!
Some good...some not so good...some very sad.
But it has all made me who I am today, and quite honestly,
I cannot change a thing, so
60 here I come!

Since we still have lots of football left to watch...
here is a tasty dip to make for your tailgate parties!
