Out with the Old

In just a few short hours another year will be behind us.

I don’t know about you, but I did manage to cross a few things off of my bucket list in 2014. Most of them were food related, but I touched a ball python named Fred, which, IMO, should count double. (And fyi, Fred felt like an expensive belt.)

I never did find my Christmas spirit, but that didn’t stop me from genuinely appreciating a couple of gifts that will be enjoyed for a long time to come. For one, we now have a trail cam, and after scrolling through 44 pictures of the dogs taking a shit in the yard, we found that we’d had a couple of visitors.



The second is a three-gallon crock, with weights and a lid, that I can use for making brandy or sauerkraut. I don’t know what I’m going to try first, but I’m leaning heavily towards the brandy. 😀


Dumping cable will be the first on the list of things to do in 2015. I’m in the process of porting the land-line number to a cell phone. Once that’s complete we’ll be canceling all but the internet portion of our “triple play” with TWC. They’ve just informed us that as of 1/17/15, our new “special rate” with them will be $209.93/month. All I can say about that is hahahahahaha.

I’ve had about all the socializing I can stand for the month, so I’ll be ringing in the new year in my PJ’s, watching The Walking Dead marathon.

However you choose to celebrate it, I hope you have a safe and happy New Year. See you again in 2015.

There’s just a little over a week until Christmas and I can’t seem to find my holiday mojo.

For one thing, this will be the second year in a row that we have not put up a Christmas tree because DammitDiesel! can not be trusted. He is a rotten, rotten dog who I would bet my right arm is the result of breeding Marmaduke with the Tasmanian Devil.

For another, there’s a cold rain falling right now, and the hopes of a white Christmas have been all but dashed.

I haven’t even wrapped a single gift… I’ve stuffed them all in gift bags and stapled the tops shut. That’s a new low for me.

I’ve eaten Christmas cookies while visiting every Christmas related Pinterest board I could find with Bing Crosby crooning White Christmas in the background.

It’s. just. not. happening.
