Happy New Year! 2007!!!! How did THAT Happen?

Time sure flies doesn't it? It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating the new millenium, and now the first decade of such is almost over! Yikes. Well, I hope you made it through the holidays with your sanity and body intact...the housewife is particularly busy this time of year what with all the family obligations!

We had a very nice Christmas here (thank you for asking), family and friends were here, I cooked a goose for Christmas dinner (1st time...brave aren't I?) and this year, I finally managed to do 95% of my Christmas shopping online, and only one gift came late! (Paint ball equipment I bought for my son...WHAT WAS I THINKING?).

Don't worry though, he had enough timely gifts to keep him occupied, and I am now trying to figure out what to do with the huge piles of boxes, paper and ribbons that one has left over after hosting Christmas. It is INSANE! It'll take me 3 months to recycle it!

But, I have to say, doing my shopping online is a wonderful thing. I got everyone gifts that they liked, because I used the time I normally spend driving around to various stores, browsing and tracking down exactly what I was looking for. And UPS and Fedex played Santa and dropped them right at my door. Heaven! Next I am going to try grocery shopping online, but I digress!

Happy New Year Everybody! Let's make it a GREAT YEAR!

I tried online holiday shopping this year for the first time and loved it! We moved right before the holidays and I had few choices time wise. I will try it again!

I do my grocery shopping online. Order & pay online and then I pick it up at the store, they bring it to the car and load it! Heaven!

I also have my milk delivered twice a week. We have a milk box and everything. It's wonderful. I <3 my milkman! It costs slightly more per gallon than the grocery store, but I always have it and never have to make a trip for milk that then turns into 37 other items too.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you too! I tell ya, I braved the crowds and will never do it again. Next time it's definitely online shopping!

I need to try out some of the online grocery shopping. I once almost tried it with albertsons, but they had a HUGE fee at the time.

I just found this blog and I love it-actually left a couple of comments on some old posts. And believe it or not, I actually, for the first time since having children, made in sanely through the holidays! (Maybe it had something to do with not having to deal with my MIL,!)

And YES! Online shopping is the greatest thing ever invented!!! I did a little last year, and a lot more this year. That could also add to the sanity!

Thanks for the cool blog!
