2010 - A Crap Year
If I seem like I'm not happy, I'm not. I'm sure I'll pick up soon with Christmas coming and all......but as for today......no.
Seems we've had nothing but bad news this crappy year
- How's the house coming along? Just fine thanks as you can see from the photo taken last week. It's supposed to snow on the weekend and we'd be very grateful if they would get some bricks back on the front of the building. Maybe it's just me, but no walls and snow don't mix well.
- My husband had his first medical problem and surgery this year. That was fun.
- What else? This is the first year in a zillion that we haven't gone to Paris (I think it's making me a bit cranky).
And just to show you how daily crap happens - I was at stable last week as a friend of ours had to take care of his horses while we were discussing serious things during the evening. This was a nice little break from sadness.....the horses are beautiful with big, expressive eyes and one of them really took to me. I was so happy to stroke his head and speak softly to him until he all of a sudden got spooked and tried to bite me. No one loves animals more than I do but that's the last time I put my hand out to anything over 1000 lbs. I got away with just a bruise but it'll be a while (read never) before I trust a horse up close again.
So, this is my warm up blog to get me back in the swing of things. Tomorrow is a new day. I'll start concentrating on Christmas, Santa, Bing Crosby, turkey, and happy thoughts.
