Goodbye 2007.....

What to write about…..what? What? I am bored. Yes, bored. Here I have been harping about wanting time to be in bed and rest and now that I am doing it, I’m bored. I have watched more TV in the last two days than I’ve watched in the last two months. The only reason why I’m not going through my stash of 29 unread books is because of this rotten headache that just won’t give it up. I have consumed so much ginger ale and water I feel like I’m going to float. I have no appetite to speak of…which is good. Maybe I can lose that 70 lbs I’ve been trying to lose. HA! I am much better than I was a few days ago, but I am not 100% by any means….more like 50%. Something how we take feeling ‘normal’ so much for granted. Maybe I needed a little lesson. Just a few days with a bug and I’m about ready to go nuts. I want to feel like I felt before this bug….hip pain and all. I’ll take it. (that’s desperation talking…I’d RATHER have NO pain, but I think you get my drift).

True to form, we have winter weather advisories up….snow, snow, snow…possibly 6 to 8 inches of the glorious stuff. Well, its better than ICE any day. We seem to always get horrendous weather on the last night of the year. It doesn’t deter most from going out and partying but I haven’t done that scene in many years. Its just way too crazy out there on this night. I used to give parties myself on New Year’s. I always would serve food too so no one would get too drunk. Everyone seemed to have a good time, including me….but after a while, it, too, just became a lot of extra trouble. Working women have to set their priorities. My job was very demanding and extremely stressful so I couldn’t afford hangovers or the time it took to get over them.

I think maybe I’ll go see about a little breakfast….cereal with some fruit maybe. I wanted to post today just so I could tell everyone who stops by to have a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve and I wish a wonderful year ahead for you. That goes for our Nation too. We sure do need a break. So, see you ‘next year’……

I hope you continue to improve. Stay safe in the snow. We usually get rain around here... then around February when we think we're safe, a big snow hits. Ah well.

Praying for your headache to go away so you can read...

Happy New Year!

I know how BORING it is to be sick Val. I couldn't even watch TV because I couldn't really see anything so all I could do was either listen to music, sleep or think. I don't like to think too much as it can lead me into all sorts of trouble so mostly I slept. Get better soon and a very Happy New Year to you and your family. Neither of us have really got off to a great start have we but don't worry.....it WILL get better :)
