Rough night

I've been awake, off and on, since 2:15am this morning. Wondering if I can squeeze in a little nap this afternoon before Hubby and the boy get home. Maybe...

Storms, with tornado warnings, rolled through here between 2-3am. I'm thankful that we didn't lose power and could check to see where the storms were.'s a little disconcerting to be awakened in the middle of the night to tornado sirens going off. We heard from our daughter at 4:50am to let us know that the sirens were going off in Jacksonville. She's fine, thank goodness!

Mind you, bad weather never used to bother me much. That is until April 27, 2011. I will never take severe weather warnings for granted again. Suffice it to say that losing power and not being able to keep an eye on the radar was nerve-wracking!!!

Thankfully, last night was nothing like that day in April here in No. Alabama. The same cannot be said for people living in Jefferson County. My thoughts and prayers are with those who were affected by last night's storms.

I'm hoping this isn't a precursor of our spring to come.

A new year, a new beginning, a new me...

I've decided that instead of resolutions this year, I'm going to set goals for myself. Two of the most important goals I've set are to get back into shape and make healthier choices...everything in moderation. It's been way too long since I've felt really good and I'm ready to get back to that. Besides if I want to grow old with my husband, I NEED to do this...for me and for him.

Did you set any goals for yourself?

Here's to a successful, happy 2012!!!
