2008 - Happy New Years!

Okay... okay... I maybe late posting this, but I really mean it! Plus, I am only a couple weeks late.

Good News! I got my job! Okay - that may need some explanation. When I started at VIHA, I was only hired for a temporary position. Now, I am hired forrrreeevveerrrrr. That is a relief! Also means that I have to do a good job now ;)

Christmas holidays were great - db and I went to Calgary for the week. By the end of the week, I was exhausted and couldn't wait to get home to sleep in my own bed. We did a lot of visiting and got to see almost everyone we wanted.

When we got home on the 30th, we had to quickly get ready for the News Year bash. Luckily I was super organized before we left and had a menu and shopping list already created. 14 of our dear friends came to our house and we had a blast! Thanks everyone for making the night so wonderful!

Of course - after that - I got sick. I am still recovering - my ears are still plugged and I am having a hard time hearing. Hopefully I didn't get anyone else sick!

Okay, I didn't make any New Years Resolutions, but I did make a 2008 to-do list:
