The 30 Day Blog Challenge

Day 1 of the Challenge ~ Today's assignment is to post a picture of yourself and a description of how your day was.

Well...this is me! My name is Nancy and I am a 57 year old wife, mom and grammy.

Today started at 12:00 a.m. with the New Year and fireworks from my daughter's neighbors. I was watching the grand kids so their mommy and daddy could go out and have some fun. I spent the night at their house. Two out of three kids were up and down all night, so a restful nights sleep was not for me.

I came home a little after 9:00 this morning. I changed my clothes and headed to church and then on to the grocery store. I bought things to make my part of a meal for a good friend and her family. Her dad died on Christmas eve and her brother was leaving to go home this afternoon. Some friends and I made a nice meal for them to share before he had to leave.

After that was taken over, I came home and started on some desperately needed computer time. I am behind in too many things lately. One of my big goals for the new year is to be better organized with my time and my home. I did laundry at the same time. After that, I got on the treadmill for a half hour.

Now it is 5:00 and I am making dinner. I have fish in the oven for fish tacos. One of our family favorites. After dinner is done and cleaned up, it will be time to start taking down the Christmas decorations. I may or may not finish tonight.

So...that is how my day was. Al in all, not a bad day to start 2012. Later tonight, I'll be back to check and see how everyone else's day was.

Just a little side note...I am a contributing writer for the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. We are a website dedicated to weight loss and fitness. We are starting a new challenge today if anyone is interested in checking us out and joining in.
