Since I have no sound coming out of my TV, I headed to the internet to calm me down. :) While I'm here, I thought I'd update the blog!
First of all ~ exciting news that I haven't shared yet ~ Mike received the 'Officer of the Month' award for December for his district, which is made up of about 80 officers all together(I think anyway!). Congratulations to my hubby on his award! I haven't seen any proof or certificate but I trust he is telling me the truth, right Mike? :)
Today I had to go to the post office because I've been procrastinating sending some documents that were due to their location by December 31st. (in short, they were documents registering a free trip we got awhile back) I recognize that overnighting a package is not a new service but I took the documents in around 1pm or so and they are being overnighted to California. She said they will be there by 12pm tomorrow. Seriously?? Think about that...less than 24 hours later, my small little envelope will reach it's destination on the other side of the United States? Think about it...that is pretty darn cool. And that's quite the coordination to make sure that envelope is on the plane along with all the other overnight packages. Again, I realize this is not some new service but for some reason I really got to thinking about how awesome that is! Especially when I procrastinate!
Christmas at the Carpenter household was a success...Tim & Nikki came over, we ate, we played a board game, and played wii. Always a good time. We missed our families...but were grateful we didn't get the snow storm the midwest received. It did, however rain most of Christmas Day and into the 26th, which resulted in melting all the snow we had left! The ground is finally dry and we can take the dogs out now without having to wipe their paws off before coming into the house. It's the little things that make me happy!!!
Well ~ Happy New Year to you all! Hope your 2010 is filled with love and new exciting adventures!
P.S. Congrats to my cousin and fellow blogger Janna on the birth of their 5th child, Owen! What a blessing! :)
