Happy New Year!

We're having a very low key New Years Day. Laying on the sofa watching football are all the plans that we have! I did clean up my closet this morning so I don't feel bad about doing nothing the rest of the day.

Yesterday started off shaky but ended up a good day. The repair man came to see about our washing machine. After spending $70 on the service call he told me it was the timer which would be $240 + another service call + it would take 2 weeks for it to come in. We decided to just buy a new one. We were going to do that today but Dean got online & determined that he can buy the part & possibly fix the washer himself so we're going to try that. The machine works, you just have to do everything manually. It's a pain but if it saves me $400 I'll deal with it for the time being.

After the repairman left I met my friend Vicki & Godchild Lane at Chick Fil A for lunch. It was soooo good as usual. I'm going to attempt to eat better this year so I had a chocolate shake. I brought Lane his Christmas gifts.
I thought this cup was so cute. The blue part on the bottom unscrews & is like a little bowl that you can put snacks in.
It's hard to believe Lane is old enough for Monopoly Junior but he'll be 5 in February.
After lunch I went & had my nails done & then went home & napped. We went down the street to a party at our friends. It's so nice to just be able to walk. We had tons of food & wine & had a great time.
Happy New Year from our family to yours!!!!
