Well 2006 was good to Nick and me. There isn't much I'm really looking forward to in 2007. Well other than its closer to Nick being done with school. So that will be nice.

Christmas was great. Mom, Dad, and Mike came for a couple of days, we got some awesome presents (THANKS EVERYONE!), Nick had like 70 services that weekend, I worked like a crazy person (but the money was well worth were $65 for one week!), and we got to go to IA to see Nick's extended family. We had a lot of fun. On the way home from IA I got sick. I don't know if it was overeating or flu but I felt like crap. I have finally bounced back and I am no longer on the cracker and gatorade diet.

New Year's Eve was a huge night for us. (Insert obnoxious laugh here) I worked a 12 hour day. I worked from 8:30-4 at the store in Bettendorf and then from 4:30 to 8:30 I worked at my regular store. I did it as a favor to a co-worker. She needed some one to take the later part of her shift (the 4:30-8:30) so she could go to Champange, IL to visit her old college friends. I know it meant a lot to her and I wasn't planning on anything so yeah. When I got home Nick and I had some pizza and some Asti and then Nick fell asleep at about 11:25. I stayed up till 12:15! So we really partied like rockstars!

Now for the next couple of weeks I hope to get back in to a routine. As my pseudo "new year's resolution" I am going to try to get back in to the working out habit. Nick and I didn't keep that in our schedules once things got busy with christmas things and services and work. So we are going to restart that again. This year I want to take more pictures. So I hope to do that. I didn't take any at christmas and I am bummed that I didn't. But I am also not happy with my camera and would really like a new one. Oh and I am also hoping to crochet more. I have a number of projects that need to be completed...but I'd really like to do some more charity stuff for like Project Linus or Warm Up America. We'll see how much I can get done. So thats pretty much all thats going on here. Nick has preached a whole bunch. You should watch his sermons....if you click on the link to the church you can check them out!
