Happy New Year!!! (A week late)

Well we had a very restful time off last week; we had Christmas Eve Dinner at my house and minus some of the bad ass kids that came it really turned out pretty nice. Here’s a list of everything that I made:

Sauerkraut and Kielbasa
10 lbs of Mashed Potatoes
6lbs of Potato Salad
Turkey Gravy
Beef Gravy
Green Beans
Baked Beans
About 50 Peanut Butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the center
About 50 Snicker Doodles
Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake
2 Apple Pies

My mother brought Stuffed Cabbage, and Cole Slaw, and my cousin brought chocolate rum balls (they did not taste very good to me, because I don’t like the taste of liquor) That is about it, we may have had more but I just can’t recall at this moment. On the 23rd I started baking cookies, after midnight we went to bed, and then I was back up cooking at 5am. Let’s just say by the time everyone showed up I was already ready for them to leave. Everything that I made was from scratch minus the stuffing, Rick only likes Stove Top, I like the real thing but I’m not going to argue about it.

Christmas Day we went to his grandmother’s house for dinner, we didn’t stay as long as we did on Thanksgiving Day but the kids were ready to leave and I was still worn out from the day before.

Rick had to work for the next two days but on Friday we went out of town with the kids, we took them to the Wildwood Inn the kids had a blast and Ricky finally learned how to swim without arm floats. Then the next morning we got up and went to Newport, KY (to the small mall there by the Newport Aquarium) and we watched National Treasure it was a pretty good show no boring parts… which is a huge plus with 4 kids. Then we went to Dewey’s Pizza they have the best pizza we have ever had!!! Actually that is why we planned our trip out there because Rick was having withdraws over their pizza.

I have to admit I haven’t checked my email for this account in over a month, when I logged on this morning I had 250 emails. So I am trying to respond to as many as I can, as quickly as I can. I have to say once again I am happy that I found blogging there are so many kind people out there that normally you would never have the chance to meet.

I am once again experiencing some great pain, but this time it is in my muscles. I’m assuming that it is from the Rheumatoid Arthritis but I feel so week, and my arms and legs are so sensitive you can barley brush against me and I’m howling in pain. I go to see my Rheumatoid specialist on February the 5th hopefully he’ll be able to give me something to make this better.
