Anything besides cleaning going on?

I am going to help my parents clean out a big closet tomorrow. They are having new insulation put in next week and the closet has to be empty. It's been the dumping ground for years.

Sunday will be church and hopefully getting my bedroom deep cleaned.

Somewhere in there I want to take the kids to see The Hobbit.

NOTHING!  DH even mentioned something this morning about how he liked the blank spots on the calendar!  lol  Clean, grocery, laundry, Christmas stuff away, and learning about the sewing machine.  That's all that tops my list!

Nothing really planned.  I took my Dad out for breakfast this morning and my brother came with us which was nice.  Then I dropped off a bunch of stuff at the Salvation Army donation center.  I went on a mission to find this gal that did my make-up at Sephora last spring.  She was a "rep" for a cosmetic line but she told me she had an eyebrow design place.  I really like her a lot.  She was around 50 and not a "kid" who just tossed some glitter on you and said that will cost you $200 to get everything you need to do it at home.  Ya right. - Any way I found her via the internet!!!!  Called to be sure it was her and it was - so I drove the 45 plus minutes to her place and had my eyebrows done.  They look fantastic even if I do say so myself.  Of course I didn't leave with out some new make-up.   When I told her about my mission to find her and how happy I was when I actually saw it was her she started to cry and told me not only did I make her day I made her whole year.  She is a make-up artist and I love what she does.  She makes me feel pretty!  After that I went and picked out new glasses.  The guy I was hoping to get help me pick them out was busy but he finished up before I made my decision and I got his advise on the ones I picked out.

I am now home waiting for John to get here.  He worked most of today but is now off until Jan. 2nd.  I am not sure what we are doing tonight - going out or staying in.

Saturday I wanted to take a day trip some place but they are calling for snow to start early afternoon and into early Sunday morning.  So rest of our plans are up in the air.

Most my house is clean.  I just need to take down the tree and pack up the last few decorations I have out and I will get to that probably on Sunday.

Today I went and exchanged the sweatshirts the boys got me for a new purse at Macy's, then spent a gift card and got four new tops - woo-hoo! Also replaced my black school shoes - got a pair of Clarks. Lots of teachers rave about how comfy they are. Hope that is true. Grocery shopped, too.

We are heading to Alderbrook tomorrow - woo-hoo! We booked a cabin and are packing some easy-to-cook stuff for the boys so they can eat in the cabin when we go to dinner. Staying for two nights. I need to research a restaurant for lunch on the way down there.

We will be coming home on Monday.

I have no real plans. Tomorrow is my mom's birthday so I will take her out for dinner.

Then on Sunday I am hoping that Shannon and her family can come up. 

I sold my fireplace and need to get it unhooked and ready to go when they come back to pick it up on Monday, and I might start ripping my carpet up.

I just went and looked it up too.   Looks beautiful, Cara.   Do you all hike?   Indoor pool?   Fish?  What is there to do when the weather is cold?

There is an enclosed pool and hot tub and some trails around the resort. They had snow shortly before Christmas, so I don't know what it looks like right now. Odds are that the snow is gone.

You can see the glass enclosed pool on the left in this pic:

There is a game room that they added since our last visit a couple of years ago - we get time in there as part of our package. The boys are excited about that:

The cabins have full (small kitchen), living room with gas fireplace, soaker tub, etc. We will probably drive into town for a little while on Sunday, but mostly we just plan on being lazy! There is a lot more to do during the summer (golf, (not that we do), kayak/canoe rentals, etc. Outdoor fireplace with bar service, etc. We have only gone in December and February, though, so we have never experienced most of those things.

Looks great, Cara... fun fun!

I have a pair of Clarks.... summer shoes though... they are the ones that I did not want to give up this fall... look similar to these and VERY comfortable!

Friday we went and played games and had pizza with some extended family.  Saturday was family breakfast and then tacos that evening.  Sunday we went to Red Lobster and then back home and all of us crashed on the couches.... we were pooped!

Here's my dad and sister snoozing... 

Last night we played games again and poor Luke was so tired... he fell asleep on my lap.  I loved it... Ash took a pic...

My sister and Kendra left this morning.... I was super sad for some reason and bawled my eyes out.  I think i forgot to take my happy pill 2 days in a row and that is probably why.  When I am not working, I get off my med schedule....lol.

Today I'm getting ready for our NYE Bash we have every year.... Mary & Danny and a few others are coming... mostly the football gang and my SIL Glenda and my cousin Sheryl & Billy.   We will have marathon eating and games.....

Tomorrow we usually watch Michigan football bowl game with Amber & Nick but we have some friends visiting from Austin area (Elgin) and they want to get together so we're going over to our mutual friends house and the 6 of us will watch it together... well, I have a feeling the guys will be watching and us girls will be in the kitchen catching up!  They are both couples from our small group at our old church.  When we went to TX this past summner, we drove to Austin and got together with them... he drives a Duck Boat as a 2nd job and took us for a tour... it was great.... we got extra time though because the Duck Boat broke down in the middle of the lake and we had to limp back to land then limp back to exchange that Duck Boat for another... so Bob took us back to the lake and drove us by Dennis Quaid and Sandra Bullock's homes.  It was fun...

I had put in to take Wednesday off because I figured I would want a day to recuperate from everything but I am going to go ahead in to work because it is driving me crazy wondering what is going and what kind of crazy mess I am going back to after they moved our offices while I was off!  Isn't that sad?  LOL

Hope everyone has an awesome time ringing in the New Year no matter how you do it!
