Sarah (songgirl7) Happy New Year, all!

I don't know if anyone here is a college football fan, but for those who watched the Sugar Bowl... that band that played the National Anthem is Bonerama and they're friends of mine! I'm so excited that they're getting national exposure like that. Check them out: Make sure it's .NET and not .COM or you will get an unpleasant surprise. Hee hee. Or better yet go to

Very cute, Heather! Sarah, my dad commented on how good they were when I popped out there to help them take down the tree.

A very happy New Year to each and every one of you! May you fulfill every resolution (so make wise choices!) and may it be filled with much love and great joy! Cheers!

Sarah (songgirl7) Michele, they're excellent. Super fun to see live. And just really nice guys.

Robbie Bashore | 592 comments Whoa, Michele--they took the tree down already? We're doing pretty good if we get ours down before Lent! (Combination of busy-ness, laziness, and our kids' desire to keep it up.)

My thing is at least wait until the 12 days of Christmas are over! Plus, since I had other things planned it was highly annoying that I was expected to help. But I can kind of get it... my brother is getting married on the 26th in Southern California, and since my great aunt died this morning, my mum is making a trip to Nebraska for the funeral. Still... I thought I'd have a few days without holiday stress to enjoy the lights and things! I like the idea of waiting until Lent. Just draw out that cheer! Hee!

DH? You have a designated hitter in your house?

message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (songgirl7) Heh... it means "darling/dear husband." Dd is darling daughter, ds is darling son, etc.

I'm taking down the decorations today. Sometime this week the guy will come take down the outside lights.

It's kind of sad taking the decorations down, but I'm listening to the Shins while I do it so it helps. :) They're the band that was playing in the bar in the GG episode "Girls in Bikinis, Boys Doin' the Twist."

Tiffany | 59 comments I actually took my tree down two days after Christmas. This was a first for me because it is usually up for my annual New Year's Eve party. It usually stays up until mid-January and when I was pregnant, it actually stayed up until Feb. This year I was just ready to pack it all in. Could have something to do with a certain 16 month old ruining all the ornaments.

So, Happy New Year!

Sera Heh. Did anyone see Wife Swap last night? This one family keeps a X-mas tree up year 'round so that their spoiled 15-year daughter can get a present every day, because she is so special and "sparkles". I had never seen anything like it.

Robbie Bashore | 592 comments Yikes! We may keep the tree up extra-long, but the presents?

message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

I saw that wife swap!!! OMG, I cant believe they did her homework for her!! Maybe they could come over here and bring some "sparkle" into my house..lmao!!!

We still have our tree up..we keep saying how we're gonna take it down..but ugh..I'm in such a funky mood lately, that I dont wanna. We'll probably take it down before dh's birthday (which is Feb 14)

message 15: by Sera (new)

Sera Frances, was that not the most bizarre situation? The sad thing is that their daughter could barely read and her spelling was atrocious. For a 15-year old girl, she wasn't very literate. I felt bad for her.

message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes!!! I was starting to think that she might have a learning disability. I dunno, I thought the dad was just way too creepy. He seriously didnt want her to be independent. He really didnt need to cut her down by saying her dinner was bad. I felt so bad for her. Then he kept saying that she'll get by in life by being so pretty. Geez, that girl is most likey to be on My Super Sweet 16 and Bridezillas, lol. Her mom was nuts too!
