I’ve been so absent from this blog that when I logged in, they’d changed stuff around! Yuck! I don’t want to re-learn anything now! I’m 35. I’m old. 


Just kidding. But I am crotchety tonight. I think the Dowager Countess would be pleased. 

Rather than update my shrunken readership with all that has happened in the past six months since Brady boy’s passing-I’ll sum up 2012 like this. 

As far as life’s journeys go, it was one hell of one. Ups, downs, and in-betweens. Dealt with more than I care to share on many different levels. 

2013 is already looking good though. The family is healthy, Abbey is still my grumpy lab, we have a roof over our heads and food to eat. My “resolution” was to paint my fingernails more in an effort to take time for myself. So far, so good. My other resolutions include:

finish my book, blog more, finish one yearbook for our family pics, lose another twenty pounds, and make jewelry/craftsy stuff. See the theme? My creative/artistic side needs to get out. Oh and the skinny girl from 1995. Even if she came out as a slightly curvier lady-I would be happy. I’m ready to make some stuff happen. 

Hang with me as I retool the blog, I promise it’ll be decent! 

It’s 2013! We can do this!

(4 minutes until Downton!) Have a great night!
