The Land of All Things Lewis

New Year Food, Periods, School, and legos…

For my New Year gift (if there is such a thing) I got my period. Isn’t that lovely.

I got a new notebook for this upcoming quarter. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with taking three classes. I was really hoping I could get down to one class per quarter. Perhaps we can afford that next quarter. So, here is to hoping for less classes for me this year, yet please let that be one per quarter…not none per quarter =P

All my boys are playing with their Lego’s from Christmas. That includes Daddy.

And, yes the food. We had planned to go to a friends house tonight. But, alas my gift is not something I really want to share. I know I shouldn’t be such a weeny. But, I am. All these years of being at home have made me a total period weenie. I hate going out.

Oh…oooops I was talking about food.

We are having a lovely meal to let in the new year. The kind of mish mash Lewis dinner we all love. It’s like Tapas only Lewis style (snark, spiff, spaff)…

The parents will be enjoying beer (in the gluten-filled and gluten-free varieties).
Pistachios in the shell
hummus
gluten-free flatbreads
tortilla chips
salsa
black bean dip
pizza (in the gluten-filled and gluten-free varieties…I’m being rather lazy tonight. I bought frozen pizzas. I’ve had no luck with making a crust like Amy’s. I like that cornmeal action going on. So, until I figure that out I’m going to consider myself so lucky to live in a country with frozen pizza I can eat.)

Dessert will be Coconut or Strawberry popsicles, Pistachios in the shell, and dark Chocolate. We bought a giant dark chocolate bar a few weeks back from Trader Joe’s. My 4 year old picked it out and he was so happy. Today we went to the local market and found a 43.00 bar of chocolate. It was rather heavy, but my 4 year old really wanted to bring it home.

I pray your New Year is full of many blessings, surprises, ups and downs (which make all the ups so much better), adventures, new strengths, and much wisdom.
