Here it is New Year's Eve the biggest party night of the year and I'm not partying! I planned a get together at our house, but than my daughter came down with fever, chills and a fever. I just didn't feel right about having people over under those conditions. My groom fell asleep in his favorite chair leaving me nothing to do, so here I am partying with you! I can't think of anyone else I'd rather share New Year's with!! Happy 2013...It is going to be a great year.
I love linking up with Farley! I'd love for my students' families to do this, too! One of these days I'm going get her Currently for students from TPT!
I could and should have added lots of things to the "loving" section. I'm loving having my daughter home from  college. She has one more semester and then graduation. She loves to cook and bake, so having her home is pretty awesome. I certainly hope she finds a job in her field or is accepted into a masters program, but if not...She can come back home and take over the cooking!!  She invited some close family friends over for a party tonight and then got sick. We'll have the party this weekend...Each day is a chance to start over, so each night is a New Year's Eve...Right?!

Do I really need a longer Christmas vacation? No, probably not. I have the whole week off and don't report back until January 7th. What I really need is to get to school and put away Christmas decorations and get ready for the coming weeks. I actually miss my little Owlets and can't wait to find  out about their Christmas celebrations. One of my little guys got a baby sister for Christmas...I can't wait to meet her!

It is going to be a great year. I'm excited to see what life has in store for you and for me.

Your turn...Have you linked up, yet? I can't wait to see what you are doing...Currently!


  1. I'm so sorry your daughter isn't feeling well - I hope that she gets better! We don't have anyone at our house, either. Just a lot of fireworks going on outside - big time party animals in this household ;) I hope that you have a great year, Jenny, and that you find joy & happiness in each day :)

    Happy New Year!

  9. Hello!

    We had to cancel our party too because my hubby is sick as well. I was bummed, but in the end, a nice quiet evening spent in pjs on the couch was very nice. Exactly what we needed :)

    Enjoy the rest of your break - I'm envious as I go back tomorrow. But I agree with you - I am excited about seeing my kiddos and hearing about all of their Christmas adventures.

    Simple is good for New Years Eve:) Our kids were over and we just sat around in front of the fireplace and chatted and goofed off. It was great fun!
    All the best to you, Jennifer!!

  14. Staying home is my favorite! We played Mystery Date and watched The Holiday. Roommates make like so much more entertaining. Hopefully your family feels better soon! Sick is not a fun way to spend vacation. What is your daughter sewing? A talent I wish I was better at!
