HAPPY 2008/Snags or Tags

            

 

LOL, I've rolled out of my time machine and voila....blonde and beautiful.  Actually, my BF has been sick with some kind of crud since last Friday so I spent NY's Eve to my own devices.  Of course, this meant, playing in PSP.  I haven't done that in a long time.  Naturally, I whined and moaned and groaned about being home on New Year's Eve but really that is only minor. 

We are all going to my mother's today for sauerkraut and pork.  This is the traditional New Year's Day meal for most of Pa.  In fact, it is supposed to bring bad luck if you don't have sauerkraut on New Year's Day.  And, of course, it is bad luck not to kiss the one you love at midnight...grrrr.

We are back into the snow thing and cold which I hate.  Becky's BF, Matt, may show up today or then again may not.  Who can tell?  Enough rambling.

Oops, before I forget, I found Christmas cards from JLand last night stuck under a pile of junk mail....Thanks Jan, LJ, Jackie and Barb!  I think that's it although there could be more stuck in my mess.

My resolution for this year...I don't make em but my goal is to visit all the journals that I'm missing and keep up with my alerts.

Have a great day and welcome 2008!  HUGS  Chris

Happy New Year. Sorry BF is sick. I was home alone with the girls whoopie. Watching Rich Brides Poor Brides because the remote was out of reach and I was too lazy to get up and get it. LMAO Now I'm watching our team losing in the Gator bowl. 21-7. Course it's just halftime. Enjoy your dinner. I''m not a saurkraute or black eyed peas either. Guess I'm doomed to a yr of bad luck. LOL
Love ya friend, Barb

lanurseprn said...

I didn't get to kiss anyone at midnight either! LOL! Oh..my boss said if you want romance in your life you have to wear RED panties on NYE! LOL! I guess I won't have any romance <smile>.
Hope you have a good NEW YEAR Chris and that you enjoy today!
Love ya,
Pam

Hi Chris,

I love your graphics, as always!  Sorry your BF is ill and hope he feels better soon.  Here in the south the tradition is black eyed peas and cabbage.  The black eyed peas are for good luck and the cabbage for money! (ha)  Hope you have a great 2008!

Take Care,
~Bilinda~

Always enjoy your tags...always the great works of art.  So sorry your boyfriend is ill, I know there is so much going around.  The cold is coming back here too.  Seems, it is going to cover us and go into the teens in the evenings.  I am dreaming of summer now.  LOL  Have a wonderful week..enjoy, stay warm.  Hugs and love,
Joyce

Well at least I'm covered on the kiss because my grandson covered me with them and hugs too and for right now he's officially the love of my life (at least I know he's not going anywhere). As far as luck goes, I'm suppose to be eating some black eyed peas today, but I don't see them in sight. So guess I'll have another bad year YIKES maybe I should get to the store and find a can that counts too.. right? Hope you all have a great day. Today is the first day we are getting snow flurries I'm so excited we haven't had snow in forever.
I look forward to cleaning PSP and so glad you joined the group I'm lucky to learn from many talented people. I can't wait. At the moment, I collecting tubes, graphics, fonts etc. don't know what to do with them, but I'll be ready LOL. My son wants to learn too so I guess we'll learn together. He's the artistic one in the family so he should come up with some good stuff.
Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

Happy New Years Chris! I have a friend who made Pork and Saurkraut today she's also from Pa. My dh is from Ohio and they do it as well. Never grew up with any food traditions on New Years and Chad and I actually don't do the pork and suarkraut, I figure living in the land of it is good enough (Germany)! :)

Happy 2008!

Christy

bgilmore725 said...

I don't think I could keep a new year's resolution past one week. I hope BF gets over the crud soon...and that you don't get it. Happy New Year... it's very cold here but we are likely only going to see a few flurries tomorrow. Probably not enough to close schools or anything. So tomorrow, I'm back into school. That's good, I was getting used to being home every day.... something I could really get into! bea

preciousone25 said...

I was asleep at 9pm on New Years Eve night...we just watched movies...and relaxed...it was kinda nice....we usually have company over and have drinks and play cards...which is fun...but we have been so worn out since the holidays we needed a break....lets face it...what i am really saying is I guess we are getting old..LMAO!

Hugs
Terri

We found ourselves amongst the crowds in Las Vegas (something I don't think I'll try again). Hope this new year is being good to you! Take care and thanks for sharing your talent! Enjoy your everyday!

I just barely made midnight on New Years Eve in Mexico and I dont drink.  I  just can't do it anymore. :)  I checked out your other journal and you haven't been there in awhile.  (By the way, I sure hope you keep up with not smoking)  
I know you said you had a bad hair day, I got mine cut and at least for now I don't think I can have a bad hair day.  All the dead ends cut off and hubby loves it.  Makes me look younger and more fresh.  I'd give it a try if I were you.  Makes you feel soooooo good.  Love both of the tags.  I snagged them.  :)
