You say goodbye, I say hello!  
All the kids are asleep. Chad wanted to stay awake this year, just in case the neighbors did fireworks, but he didn't make it. I just put him in his room.

Today was one of my long days, but at least I don't have to do the midnight patrol! I hate dealing with all the drunks.

Before the year is over, I want to say thank you to my flist for hanging around, thank you to my family for all their support and never-ending love, thank you to the maintainers at my pervy communities who have stayed strong in all the uncertainty here at LJ and a couple of special thank yous to follow.

First of all, thanks Charlie for the extra paid time (a year!) and userpics. I don't think I've ever paid much myself during my nearly three years here at LJ. It's great to have such good friends.

Next, I have to publically thank Linds (AGAIN!) for the great gift she gave us in 2007. Of course I'm talking about our little prince, Henry. I always knew she was a special person and a great friend, but I'm still overwhelmed by this generosity and love.

And finally I want to thank the continually devoted suechosethis for her support here at LJ. She's always watching and commenting, she links our website from her own LJ and she even joined my Colin Watch list to help me out there. (And that Braveheart blend for Bri's birthday was a real present to both of us, girl!) I'm not sure what I ever did to deserve it all, but believe me I feel lucky.

Happy New Year to all of you, and even when I don't get here to LJ, I'm thinking of you and wishing you well.hit counter

You just blew me away with this Jim! Thank you so much for letting me know, I'm so glad my genuine offers of friendship and support have made a positive impact on you - it's what I intended :D

For my part I'm very selfish because I love your writing Jim - I don't always see everything but I always always enjoy what you write. And I feel the genuine love and warmth of you guys - even in your down moments there is always the underlying positive vibe running through your lives, something that is refreshing and inspiring.

I'm not sure what I ever did to deserve it all, but believe me I feel lucky.
You are just you Jim - just_jimbo is the perfect user name for you and I love you for it! Don't ever change.
I know that whatever happens in 2008 you and Bri and your lovely family will make the best of it. I know you don't need me, but I am very proud and lucky to be able to be just a small part of what makes for mutual happiness in a world that can be very harsh and uncaring at times.

We are all very lucky :D

Jim.. Hey darlin'! Happy New Year to you, Bri and the rest of your wonderful fam!

I've been a bit MIA the last couple months around here myself thanks to my job. This time of year is hell for me! But its over now! *takes a deep breath*

I've missed commenting back and forth with you! I hope that in this next year we do it more then the last. I think of you and your family often. You were one of my first LJ friends and I hold those close to my heart!

Take care of each other love... as I already know you do! Cherish every moment and just be happy!

I love you all!
Hugs n Kisses

LOL. I admit I was nodding off too.

At midnight I posted a new years entry in my LJ and then went to bed. Fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.

May 2008 bring you and your family even more joy.

Happy New Year to you and your family Jim. I know I'm quieter now, but you're one of the people I think of often, even if I'm not being active around here. May 2008 be everything you wish it to be.
