I hear ya! I've also been downsizing too....even alot of my Christmas stuff (I've got alot...and I mean alot). It's hard because everything has a meaning to it...*L* But I do agree how much more simplified it would make things. I go to my brothers and his wifes home which is newer and modern and it's soooo peaceful... few things hangin on the walls, nothing sitting on the table or countertops etc. I strive to be like that. Don't get me wrong I'm a clean freak...spotless.. but I have a collecting habit...*L*

I'm a bit jealous of folks getting tons of snow. We're still waiting for ours. On another note, I took in some dry cleaning today and the lady helping me made some small talk about who I was rooting for in the Super Bowl. I had to confess that I'm not a fan and the Super Bowl is a total non-event in our house.

Are we just weird?

No Jeff you arent weird... well unless we are also weird? We dont do the Super Bowl either... Unless my father inlaw wants to gather with us on that day an in that case I will because my mother inlaw is the most amazing cook in the world...

We just finished dinner.. I made a whole roasted chicken... homemade rolls and ceaser salad.

Getting tons of snow here!!! Praying the power stays on as it's been flickering, my cell phone is blowing up with all of the texts from my friends and facebook notifications going through and I have no school tomorrow!!! I left the tutoring center today at noon and my friend called me and said that it was cancelled due to the expected snow storm!!! I was so happy. I feel like a kid again with a snow day!

It would be so hard to get rid of any of my Christmas things. I have 2 closets full of Christmas stuff and a lot up in my attic. At least I know that if I ever decide to downsize my Christmas collection, I can pass along things to my daughter and her family that way the sentimental decorations will be in the family.

Coach- they only got in about 45 minutes of practice today before the rain started in daytona but Junior was fastest at the time they called it. He goes out 6th in qualifying tomorrow so i guess we will see then how well he does.
