We are hunkered down for the day, not even venturing out to shovel until with wind and snow die down.
We had a quiet New Year's Eve. Liam lasted till 9:00 when we did a count down, popped some confetti poppers and sang Auld Lang Sine before he went to bed. Hilary and I lasted another full hour! We had lightening and thunder at 3:00 that woke me up (yes in the Maritimes we get snow, wind, rain, lightening, thunder and even sometimes sun all at the same time) so I wished everyone a silent Happy New Year then.
We have no big plans for 2009, no resolutions. Life will continue it's daily routine of school, work, skating lessons and grocery shopping. The only thing we are implementing as of today is a return to eating dinner at the table and NOT in front of the TV. It's a bad habit left over from our pre-Liam days. The hardest part of doing this is going to be keeping the dinning room table free enough of clutter for there to be room for us to sit. The good thing is there are only 3 of us and the able seats 8, so there is still plenty of room to pile up stuff!
Happy New Year Everyone!
