Well, Punk, it sounds like you've had some fun parties! I had a New Year's Eve costume party one year when I lived in San Diego. That was fun. When we lived in northern California, we had foster children and went to the festivities at our church. The kids all enjoyed that. We played lots of different games. I thought that was fun. Now that I don't have little ones anymore (except grandkids), it's just different. I have a hard time staying awake until midnight!! I think that, if we get the foster care license, things will be somewhat different for the holidays.

Does anyone know Stace Coombs? I'm trying to find out if she has an SCS Screen Name. She lost her two young sons in a tragic auto accident on Christmas Day.

Hi all,

You may have already seen Sue, aka Perk, Coffeestamper's Son's Caring Bridge link. However, if not: CaringBridge / Christopher Titolo / guestbook.

I don't know Stace Coombs. The name is familiar... How terrible! Praying some more!

I had a two hour drive last night and prayed extra for you all then including your DGS Greenie, and your sons Punk, and your mothers Tater and CA. That is just a small sample, it would take to much to type it all here! All of you with fibro including daughter Jodi!
Hugs!

We really don't like to go out on New Year's. There's so many drunk people on the road and the restaurants are so busy you can't really get good service. We used to get together and play cards with a few other couples but that kind of went by the way side after so many years. I usually have a nice dinner with a few people over on New Year's day because it's my husbands bd. We are going to a horse sale New Years Eve day and out to eat in the late afternoon. We'll be home by 6:00. My husband goes to bed way before midnight but I'll be up. Everyone have a Happy New Year.

Gunner and I are bowling in a tournament New Years Eve and will be home WAYYYYY before the drunks hit the road. I love spending New Years with Gunner. On Jan. 1st, I update all my calanders with everyone's birthday; get all my last year's files gathered into the "Income Tax" folder; make what we call Texas Caviar which has black eyed peas in it; and then watch some football. Pretty sedate celebration but that's the way we like it. We may have friends over for dinner. I have prayers in my heart for the person who lost two sons on Christmas Day. I cannot even imagine a terrible loss like that. Went for an ultra sound yesterday and turns out it does not appear to be a tumor! What a scare! Thank you Jesus!

She's a demo from Maine and has a blog. She's in one of my Yahoo Groups. I don't think she is an SCSer. At least, I haven't found any evidence of it yet. Anyway, one of her boys recently graduated from high school, and the other one was in college. She also has a daughter who is younger than the boys. It's so sad.

Default Happy New Year

Happy New Year all my sistahs!

Tough day today.....got a real nasty letter in the mail today from my stepson's wife, Amanda. Sucked all the life, energy, happiness right out of me! I'm home alone right now; hubster is at the neighbors house at a party...I just couldn't go. Mark will be home by 10:30. I'm watching JCTV music videos on TV, got my laptop in my lap, got my nightie on, got my SU! catty right next to me, candles lit, my Diet Coke on the table next to me and my fur babies at my feet. What more could a gal ask for!

I pray that 2012 will be a blessed year for all of you! LYMI!

Hey, you gals can call me, too!! I've got my laptop on my lap, I have my p.j.'s on, I'm propped up in my bed, Pip is at my feet (barking at the TV now and then because I'm watching "Cats and Dogs"), and I took a pain pill because I pulled a muscle in my neck earlier today and it really hurts. Anyway, we can spend New Year's Eve together!! LOL!

Happy New Year, my friends. Sue and Lesley, I suppose you have beat the rest of us in ringing in the New Year. There is still 50 minutes to go here. DH and doggies are all snoring, lazy bums.

Lesley, sorry your step DIL ruined your day. I pray it will all iron out soon.

I am not hungry, but I keep looking for something to eat because I am bored. That is unusual for me. I was going to make some dip, but when dh went to sleep, I knew I wasn't going to make it just for me.

CA, I hope your neck is better soon. That is no fun.

I am glad that I am strapped in the driver's seat cuz I think you might put me on top of the bus for forgetting the challenge this week. Last week, I did not have a stamp or anything that would work for my Christmas tradition memory. I will try to get one done for this weeks challenge. Hmmm, a card about good things about winter and no pink. I don't like winter and coloring with pink keeps me from being depressed because it is winter. I really like pink.

Wishing all of you a Happy and bright New Year.

My New Year's resolution is to walk no less than 3 times a week - at least a mile!! Need to lose some weight so it is less taxing on my knees and it will also lower my blood pressure! Put the pressure on me, so I stick to this one, girls!!

Well Happy New Year's sistah's! We went to a horse sale this morning. Some of the ladies and myself left and went shopping. I didn't buy anything. Then we went to Longhorn for dinner and it was excellent. We were home about 5:30.
I think I have been to Stacie's blog. I don't know her. I cannot imagine how devastated her family is. I can tell you when our son died it was like it was not real, it couldn't be...right? Those things happen to other people. It was some of the worst days of my life. To lose two children at the same time. Frankly my mind can't phantom how it would be. That family surely needs our prayers. Only God can carry them through this.
Lesley I'm sorry your DIL could do something like that. She is childish or she would have said these things to your face or not at all.
So do any of you have certain foods you cook for NY day? It's my husbands bd and I hope its the last celebratory dinner for awhile!
I'm sorry I have missed the last two challenges. I just have not been in a stamping mood. I hope it passes. I ordered some ODB and Verve stamps today. I'm going to sit down when they come in and play. Do any of you get like that?
Shirt I love pink too!
Tater I must have missed something because I didn't know you might have a tumor or was it your Mom? Anyway Praise the Lord no one had a tumor!!!!
Teri maybe things will settle down for you a little since the holidays are over.
Wendy and Jan hope your New Year's was great. Hugs to all of you.

OK, I 'thought' I told all of you about this little guy back the week before Christmas, but since I know you ALL are ALWAYS praying for whatever the needs on the bus are, just wanted to let you know that we are in the midst of a miracle with Brian, age 7!!

He was in a car accident and had a critical brain injury, and about 5 days before Christmas, they had to put him into hospice - everything pointed to it being his time to be with the Lord - well, we were all praying for a Christmas miracle, and we are right in the middle of it now - the swelling around hi sbrain went down, he started to move his hands and feet, and then he OPENED HIS EYES! They ran some tests and have TRANSFERRED HIM OUT OF HOSPICE and back into the pediatric ICU - all signs point to a slow but steady progress. If you would like to read up on it, his story is also on caringbridge.com -----there have been over 28000 visits to his site, and testimonies from others who had similar injuries and survived - just like Lesley's son, Ryan - Little Brian's family is so strong in their love of the Lord, yet they thought Brian's time had come - but he is a fighter and a strong one at that! I am marveling at the power of our mighty Savior, and thanking Him for the wondrous display of faith - even 'non believers' have said they are going back to church after witnessing this! Praise God!!!

I have been getting updates daily and keeping the entire family in prayer - I would love to have you join me, now that you know - I am so sorry that I forgot that it was not posted on the bus - I thought I had, but just checked and found out I did not!

You know, just when you think you got it bad, take a look around. Prayers for Brian and for his family who need to stay strong for him.

Happy New Year Sistahs! My traditional files organizing is under full swing. I move last year's files to the "Income Tax" file and make new files for the New Year. I swap out all the calanders and write all the birth dates we need to remember on each date. And record all the important events just to keep track of how long it was we replaced the well pump, or the fire wall in the fire place.........you know, stuff like that.

Silly, I didn't say anything to anyone about my last Mammogram coming back questionable. It was just too much to share and really, why put out an alarm when all I knew was "questionable". Since I was in the hospital last Oct., they made me discontinue my Enbrel injections which I take for psoriasis. So now my Psoriasis is back full blown and I am a miserable puppy for sure. I went to the Dermotologist who is willing to let me resume the injections but she took a biopsy of the side of my nose. When a Dr. tells you this will only hurt a little.....DO NOT BELIEVE THEM!!! So now waiting for results of that. So that is all the secrets I have regarding my health status. I'll get back to the kitchen now as one tradition is to have Blackeyed peas on Jan. 1st. I can't stand them so I usually just have a spoon full to get by. Does anyone know the challenge for this week?

Oh Sistahs...the challenge (which will be my last for some time, k?) is to make a card celebrating "All things made new", and it's a free-for-all. Do ya what want, and leave the p-i-n-k out to honor Sweet Tater! Yikes- took me ten minutes to read thru the last few pages just to get caught up (and you's all on my prayer list), with extry lovin's fer sure.

We had a lovely two weeks in Wyo, and got sick when we came home. Bubba is down & out again this week, but is on the mend. I had not one bit of hand pain when we were away, but it returned after only two days at work. Five months to go....that's what I keep telling myself. The doc said to use anti-inflammatories and to not type too much. Lol! Ok.... I miss you all so much, and am sorry the Christmas cards were so late (Canadian cards still have to be mailed out! Yikes!) I made a few each day, but really, writing in them was the most difficult part!

Bubba ordered a new program for my desk top that uses voice recognition- so my computer will "type" what I say! Have you ever heard of such a thing? Will most likely take me til I retire to figure out how to use it, but at least I can answer emails and make comments once I get the hang of it. If only it could read minds, and make the cards I have in there! I need two cards by Tues- one for our son Chris, who will be 33 tomorrow, and another for Jonny, who turns one on Fri!

While we were there, Jon got 3 new teeth, said "Gramps" (on Bubba's bd!), learned how to "Kiss on Request" and took his first steps! We felt so blessed. Each time we leave is harder than the last, and when we finally sell our house & move- we will be "home".

Someday Sistahs, I will be back to posting and commenting, but it is not in me for now. I will keep each of you close to my heart and will lift up your concerns as well. Much love always....

Default Scripture for you

I thought it would be nice to start off the new year with scripture.


We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better.

Colossians 1:9-14
