Did you survive the holiday rush/season

Wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwhoooooooooooooooooooosh it came and went, and if you blinked your eyes you missed it. We were all inundated with Black Friday ads, and who had the best ads, who had the cheapest XbOx, or Wii, and our kids were able to fill their lists with plenty of expensive wishes. I know mine filled their wish lists a couple of times. So did you wake up at the crazy hours to go shopping? Or did you stay up late? And the car industry is trying to get in on it...but let's face it...they won't fit it in will they? They will really have to to have some scrumptious deals to offer us after we've bailed everyone else. I think the sales for the stores will still keep coming. We still have plenty of sales, but lets get back to the original question. All the fuss just for a couple of days. I must say my holidays were pleasant. My Christmas and New Year were quiet, and even though I had to work new years eve, it was enjoyable. With all the craziness, I am glad that my family and I were safe. I am glad I was able to provide just enough gifts for my immediate family and they were happy with what they have. I'm really so grateful for so many things my family won't know. I'm grateful my inlaws got my daughters coats. I'm grateful for the small gift my sister in law gave me. I'm very grateful for the gifts that my hubby and daughters got me, they were spot on.

And what about your new years resolution? I belong to cardinal fitness and I have to stop by the gym more often. I will eventually switch over to the park district because abby wants a membership. I would like to eventually like to leave joliet, chuck wants a bigger house. I just want better school choices and etc.
2011 is going to be a much better year, so happy new year to you all. I hope you have a happy and prosperous new year!

I so wish I belonged to a gym, could definitely do with improving my cardio fitness. The holidays have gone quickly although one or two days it's felt like they've dragged.

All the best for the new year.
