Guess What? I actually made it past midnight last night. That is a big accomplishment for me!! Joey and I stayed up watching Cinderella Man(I loved this movie!!) At 11:55, we switched it over to watch the ball drop. Our local stations were broadcasting live from downtown OKC, so we got to see the ball RISE! I was confused. I am used to watching the ball drop! Oh well, it is now 2006 no matter what the ball did! Soon after midnight we heard fireworks going off all around our house. Although I am a big fan of fireworks, I had several problems with them last night. First off, the state of Oklahoma is under a burn ban, and we have had grass fires all over the state this week. Second, they were going off like one street over from us. Jaxon was finally sleeping peacefully…then fireworks. Needless to say, I was not too excited about the fireworks last night!! Oh well, we made it. It is a new day and a new year. I feel so renewed. I am ready for this new year. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!! I wish you all a truly blessed new year!!
