Happy New Year! I had this crazy idea I'd catch up in the beginning to the posts--yeah, probably not going to happen. Oh well. Time to start this shiny new year--by finding the Tournament of Roses parade, right after I exercise. We actually made it to midnight last night, but it was difficult--I think we should have gone out after all. But we did have a nice glass of bubbly and tooted our noisemakers. I'll make hoppin' john, pork tenderloin and greens later on today. Then back to normal tomorrow. Blecch.

Nothing much going on today (but that's a good thing). The Ninety Nine (local restaurant chain) is having a New Year's special, and we got a gift card for Christmas, so we may drive over and get a (nearly) free lunch later. Then ... probably more movies! In the meantime, I should fill in birthdays and appointments in my 2012 calendar book.

Isn't it odd to look at the number of pages in the Countdown and find them in the single digits again? That won't last long!

I am off to the store to pick up some ingredients for the ham sauce. The recipe is REALLY old that I got from an older (in her 90s) lady at church. She gave me two recipes, one of them from her grandma!!! It is Hubby's favorite; he even puts it on his mashed potatoes!

One of my resolutions is to make individual posts to the countdown so the posts can add up instead of doing multi-quotes. The other resolution/goal is to listen to my body and the doctor and try to stay as healthy as possible. Ya never know when you may need lots of strength.

I almost forgot: I also have a goal of being more organized so that if anything does happen, my family will know where to find important papers and information. (I am sorry if that is so negative, but I feel like I need to be realistic.)

Above all, though, I want to become and remain optimistic for the remainder of 2012 and beyond. There, I have gotten the negativity out of the way!!!

If we keep Made's suggestion of 110 posts per day, we are 21 away from our first day's goal--that is unless Jeff has an even better suggestion!!!
