Two, Two, Two Holidays In One

We’re back from our Christmas blogging break!  It was a wonderful holiday week spent with family, and I’ll share more about that in future blog posts.

Our celebrating continues this week…

New Year’s Eve is a quiet one for Motor Man and me; the usual evening at home. This year, however, something new will be added to our evening, and I hope it will become a tradition. Details in Wednesday’s blog post. Here’s a little hint:

But, New Year’s Day  is also Motor Man’s Birthday. We won’t really celebrate that in a BIG way, either; probably just dinner with Marshall and perhaps a special dessert.

So, Happy New Year, everyone, and to my Motor Man, a Happy Birthday wish for tomorrow.

Perhaps we can stay awake to share a kiss at midnight.

Motor Man’s Day

Not only is today New Year’s Day, it’s also Motor Man’s birthday.

So, in honor of his special day,  I thought it might be fun to share some previously unrevealed facts about my hubby.

1.) The only song lyrics Motor Man knows are to the chorus of “Thunder Road”. Since most of you probably aren’t familiar with that song, here’s a link for your listening enjoyment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdwUpxkfSJw

2.) Motor Man once had two newspaper routes as a young boy, built his first race engine when he was in his teens, and started his own (very successful) business when he was 28 years old.

3.) He flipped a “souped up” go-kart once when he was a kid, and broke his little toe. He couldn’t tell his Mom, because she had forbidden him to drive said go-kart.

4.) Motor Man loves nothing more than making folks laugh, whether it’s telling a joke, doing something funny, or playing a practical joke. Over the years, though, he’s learned that I don’t take kindly to those jokes being played on ME.  That has slowed him down a little, but hasn’t stopped him.

Happy Birthday, Motor Man. You make me smile.
