Happy New Year!?

So, 2018.  All I can say is I hope this year will be kinder to us than last year. 2017 had a lot of ups and some truly deep downs for us.
2018 will hopefully have more ups than downs, although we will have to move to a new town come June, so not sure how that will go, it could be an up, but also a down.

Anyway, it's a new year and that means a couple promises.  Not resolutions, but promises.
  1. Be positive about the move to Casper. This one will be tough for me, but I'm going to be as positive as I can be.
  2. Menu Planning.  I have been taking more pleasure is cooking and trying to mix up the menu just a bit.  It helps that all of a sudden Bruiser has decided that he likes more foods.  Not too many, but I'll take what I can get with my picky eater.
  3. Routines.  I need to embrace routines, but not get stuck in a rut. It can be tricky to get into a routine and not let it become a rut.
  4. Date night.  Nick and I need to make more effort to get out and have time for us.  Rediscover the fine art of conversation.  We have been working on this one.
  5. Camping.  Yes, we are moving at the beginning of summer, but we can still get out and camp.  And we have a whole new territory that is easily accessible.  So outdoors here we come.
OK, so there a few promises for 2018.  I hope I can keep them.

On to MMMM: It's freebie week so here's what I have been listening to recently:
 David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney with Everything's Gonna Be Alright:

Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line with Meant to be:

Sugarland with Still the Same:

Have a great week!


  1. Vandy,

    Didn't y'all make a move last year? Sounds like you guys are going to be busy. At least the move is taking place in the warmer months. It's so cold right now. I'm ready for spring to get here. lol Thanks for sharing your freebie picks with the 4M gang. Have a good week, my friend

  2. Yes, you really have to have that date night. It's very important to both of you. I wish you both the very best for 2018. Thanks for the introduction to your rockin' tunes. YOU ROCK!

  3. It's important to a relationship to get out of the house together on a regular basis. Spend too much time at home and one starts thinking about cleaning and and spending too much time yelling at the kids and/or the pets or each other. It's even more important when you're retired...

  4. I like your new year promises! Especially since those seem like reasonable promises that you can keep. ;) Loved all your song choices! Thanks for the dance! :)

  5. Date night is so important! (I know I am echoing previous comments). Moving is hard, but hoping it is a positive step for you and your family. "Everything is Going to Be All right". Alana


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
