Wow! It's 2008!!

I can't believe another new year has arrived. It really seems like yesterday that we were celebrating the arrival of 2007. Does that mean I'm OLD???? : ) I guess it's really true....the older you get the faster the time goes. That's made me really sit back and think about my life and what I want to accomplish during it. God has blessed me and my family with so much and I don't ever want to take that for granted. I am so thankful for His many blessings. I pray that this year I will grow in my walk with Christ and help others do the same.

Today has been a pretty relaxing day. We did get dressed and go to Cracker Barrel for a LATE breakfast that ended up being lunch. I decided after I ate my Chicken Fried Chicken that I MUST stop eating so much. It seems like all I've done the last few weeks is eat, eat, eat! Now it's time to get back on track. Chad has been off of work for that last week and it's been soooo nice having him home. He has helped so much since I had my knee surgery. It's going to be hard to see him leave in the morning and not be home until 6:00 tomorrow night. I'll definitely miss having him here.

Speaking of knee surgery....I'm doing pretty well and I'm still counting down the days until I get rid of these crutches. I have about 2 1/2 more weeks until I go back to the doctor and hopefully he'll say I'm ready to walk again. That's what we're crossing our fingers for. Today at Cracker Barrel I felt like a freak show. Everyone seemed to stop eating as I walked by their tables to get a good look at me and then as we left the same thing happened. I know they are just curious but I quite honestly get sick of people starring at me. I guess the lady that seats people noticed all the stares I was getting and she leaned over and said "next time someone stares at you you just say 'haven't you ever seen anyone on crutches' " . It definitely made me smile. Of course I would never actually do that but she said exactly what I've been thinking for the last 3 1/2 weeks! : )

Now, in closing....we bought all of the girls big lollipops at Cracker Barrel today and I want to share a few pics of them. I hope you all have a very blessed 2008! Love you all!
