Happy New Year!! I hope the day finds everyone in good spirits and doing well on their first day 2011's journey. I know this, I had a heck of a day. I am glad to have settled down for the day finally, but it was a great day.
I had a heck of a time last night. The Hunters and The Griffins partied down with Wii Just Dance, Just Dance 2 and the Michael Jackson Experience for Wii. We danced our asses off then sang on Rock Band, yelled screamed and hollered and blew our noisemakers at midnight, visited for a bit, then Kathy, Lauren and I came home. In bed around 1:15 up at 7, both of which are minor miracles, just ask my family. I went to my swearing in at 10 o clock. The Quorum Court met for our first meeting to adopt the new Procedural Ordinance and vote on an appropriation ordinance. I expected a quick in and out, but one of the new justices wanted to debate the procedural ordinance and another made a fair point about the issue up for appropriation and we wound up voting to send it to committee after some good debate. The official requesting the appropriation was hacked and made it known in the public comments section of our meeting. I spent the day researching the way to fix the problem and think I have it. I then got out for my walk in the freezing cold because I felt the need for some outside time. I love to do my walking outside when possible, it just makes me happy. Kathy cooked us up some black eyed peas, fried up a little cabbage and made corn bread muffins for supper. I am at 1520 calories for the day, with only yogurt left on my plan, I got 4 good hard miles of walking under my belt, and it looks like Kathy and I may be fixing to tangle on Just Dance so I can try to beat her at least one time dang it!
Hope to see some good first day of 2011 posts from ya'll tomorrow morning! Here I go to the likely slaughter!
