Mo' fog ~ Mo' football ~ New Year's resolutions....

Good 28ยบ morning. Don't know what it looks like outside. Too dark still (7:15am)  but probably like yesterday, foggy and frozen.

Yesterday was nothing exciting. I fought with my computer/printer most of the day, between it printing and then restarting and unplugging the printer and plugging it back in.... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

The football yesterday was ok. Cheering the Colts on and they lost 23-20. Tight game. My Patriots whomped the Dolphins 38-7. Kristen's Jets displayed the same score over the Bills. Cliff's Chargers lost to the  Broncos 33-28.  Jets and Colts square off this coming weekend. Playoffs ... yeah!

Hey, for some good drumming fun.... here's my grandson Jack...

Ok, all I know. Back to fighting with my computer and printer. Dinner will be stir-fried veggies and brown rice. The "resolution" to eat healthy and portion control. UGH. In the last two days I have tried to eat up all the goodies here so the "resolution" has a chance! Oh my did Judy ever make some good chocolate covered peanut butter candies! Then there's the alcohol soaked fruit cake...... and the Baklava from Linda, the peppermint bark from Alex and Mary.... thankfully the wonderful Huckleberry Cream coffee from Edda has no calories!!! Oink oink.....
