WMC 1.2

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on gasoline. I know, super boring. But we really didn’t buy much this last week!

2. Today I am thankful for new beginnings.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was oh so many things! Top of mind is riding in the back of my mom’s truck with my sisters and brother in-law singing carols on our way home from our candle light service on Christmas Eve.

4. I will consider this week a success if I get organized at work. It’s going to be a busy month!

5. On New Years Eve I stayed in and cooked dinner for our neighbors and my sister. The boys played some video games and the girls crocheted/knitted and talked about Pinterest before toasting in the new year.
