Still no news...

yep that's right, it is January 26 and we still have not heard anything! I am going crazy! We are still hoping to hear something in time for BJ to enter the March 2009 class....but it is a lot of hope and not much reality.

The suspense is getting to everyone , I think. All of our friends and family ask if we have heard yet...every time we see them. As a joke, I tell them "yes we did hear and he is in and we leave tomorrow...we just wanted to keep it a secret!" Of course we will tell all of you...we will be shouting from the rooftops! I am sure you will all be able to hear us through the wind.

Last Day of Vacay

So today is my last day of my Christmas vacation. It is the last time (hopefully!) that I will have a paid week off from my boss. It is kind of sad and exciting all in one. Sad that I will have to leave an employer that I do enjoy working for (most of the time) and exciting that hopefully in a few months we will be living in a new area.

I have been busy this morning and early afternoon doing my household chores so that I can go to the movies with Mom Volinski. We are going to see "Marley & Me", which I want to see so bad and she is afraid to see becasue she heard it was really "grap a box of Kleenex" sad. I will post and let you know what I thought of it.

I hope everyone is enjoying the new year so far....

Much love!

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family!

We rang in the new year with some friends (Kim & Keith and Ruth & Jason) at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. It is our friendly, neighborhood casino. We hung out mostly at Bar Louie and had a great time. I think we all realized that we are getting old....some of the younger ladies had dresses on that were OMG-short. There is no way they could have bent over without showing the goods! It kind of made me happy that I am beyond that.

So with the new year, brings the old New Year's resolutions. I have decided to make them and I am going to do my best to keep them.

- I want to live healthier.
- I want to have a strong, lasting, supportive, beautiful relationship with my husband.
- I want to give time to myself.

I figure all three of these will make my life better and positive in many ways. And of course I will benefit from these changes by losing some weight and becoming less stressed. How can you not want to do that!?!
