Happy New Year! A Day late...

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe New Year! I did. I didn't want to go out for New Year's Eve this year so I stayed at home and relaxed. I am a bit sick of parties right now. On New Year's my mother wanted to go see "The Great Debaters" at the matinee show and then have dinner. The movie was fabulous! It's was so good! I laughed at a lot and cried some too. It's definitely worth the money.

Afteward I kidnapped my mom and stopped at JoAnn's to browse around. I did very well. I didnt' buy anything. I did want to check the yarn to find something for my next project. But I decided to wait. They have yarn on sale right now and I wanted to see if I could find something. I found some very pretty yarn but I wasn't sure how much I needed. So I left without buying anything. I did want a magazine but since I didn't have a coupon with me I passed on that too. My mom hates going to JoAnn's with me. I love to browse and she has no patience for it! LOL!

Unfortunately on my way home I got stopped by the police. The officer said I didn't stop at the stop sign which was not true. I also did not have my current proof of insurance card with me and I got a ticket. Not good. I now have to go to court next month.

But, I will not let one sour note spoil my New Year's day. I spent time with my mother and watched the plentious television show marathons presented for the day. All in all it was a good day and I hope to continue to find the good in every day this year. I hope you all do the same.

Keep it real everyone!

Happy New Year girl.

You know the officer is always right(NOT!!). Sorry about the ticket, he could have cut you some slack about the current insurance card(it was the first day of the new year). I just put mine in the car and they expired mid-december.

Are you hanging out next Tuesday? I may try and come if the weather isn't too bad.

GIRL!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE to window shop. I can and will spend hours in stores without buying a single solitary thing. Ian't acclimated to it, he brings snacks and just sits and chills out until I'm done! lol

Don't you just not like the Po-PO! Bring your insurance card to court showing you had coverage and fight the stop sign violation.. You should get off!
