I WILL post today

I have been trying to post for the past few days, but by the time I get my blogger-create-post page up, I have to run and go do something else and am not able to get more computer time.

Welcome to 2008, everyone.
Our New Year's Eve traditions are to eat summer sausage, cheese and crackers, and to drink punch(non-alcoholic, of course) while talking about our goals for the coming year. And we are always in bed long before midnight! I think we only use our punch bowl once a year, on New Year's Eve. We also go over last year's goals to see what we have accomplished. The main goal for 2008 is to pack up our house and move; that's a big job when you've been living in the same house for 15 years. We haven't listed our house yet, but we are starting to clean and pack nonetheless, because if we don't start now we won't be ready when the time comes. So far, we have cleaned out the pantry and the library. We easily have two thousand books or more, even after we got rid of several hundred.

Have I mentioned before that we are planning on moving this year? If not, surprise!

Is the hog farm one reason you're moving?

And where are you going? Same town? Nearer / further from Omaha? Still within NE?

Go to Vermont - they have good health plans there.

The hog barn hasn't gone up yet, and we aren't sure why.
We are hoping to move closer to our Church, which also means closer to the city. Sigh.

I'm not interested in a health plan. I already have a plan for my health.

Good luck with the move.

Out of curiosity, do you ever stay up past midnight?

Ha ha!
I only stay up after midnight if I am having trouble sleeping, and I have been sleeping good lately, or in rare situations where I am not in control.
