Why hello, 2014. How did YOU get here?

I don't make resolutions because I'm lazy as an old sow but a new year always gets me thinking. I wouldn't go as far as saying inspired, because that's just crazy talk, but there is a spark under my hood this morning.

Or maybe it's an itch and I just need a bath.

Regardless, there's a few things I'd like to get done this year.

I want to do more blogging, first of all. I've been remiss in that department and I miss it. That's a lot of misses, missus. 

I want to finish the book I started in Nano and then abandoned when I got sick. It's a real sick, twisted plot, by the way. If you ever get to read it, you'll be appalled.

Speaking of sick, I don't want to be sick anymore. Stupid sick. X-nay on the ick-nay. Oh, Dave and my mom are both sick. They decided they felt sorry for a homeless cold virus and invited it in for New Year's celebrations. Mom and It went to bed at 9:30 – I think they were getting it on. Dave and I stayed up until 30 seconds past midnight, then crashed. He had a mouthful of potato chips when he hugged me and kissed the air on top of my head at the stroke of 12. It was so romantic. I peed at 15 seconds to 12 – out with the old, you know. It's nice to start a new year with an empty pee-bag bladder.

I'd like to drive back to Ontario to see my kids. I'm going through kid-withdrawal. I need to hug 'em and kiss 'em and yell at 'em a few times to satisfy my cravings. 

I don't WANT to get on my exercise bike but I MUST because my ass is the size of Vermont and if I don't start pedalling soon, my ass will droop down to the pedals and I'll have to lift it up just to place my feet.

Welcome aboard, 2014. Holy crap I'm old.

  2. You never disappoint in the humor department! DoodleBug got sick. And then shared it with me. To say I am really unhappy that she's living back at home now would be an understatement. LOL Happy New Year!

    1. I remember being, like, 10, and thinking that in the year 2000 I would be 40 and I would be ancient, if not practically dead....

  7. The only answer to aging is dying. I'll take getting old - it lets me eat more pizza.

    Happy new year, Cathy!

  8. Not a resolutions kinda girl either. I got so tired of breaking them and having them laugh at me when I used to sit down to think what to resolve to do that I wouldn't do. Know what I mean?

    So here's to 2014, Out with the old and in with fun, prosperity and doing more.

  10. I'm not actually sure what the size of Vermont is. Bigger than Rhode Island and smaller than Texas but, other than that, I'm not sure what it means.

  15. I've just checked my atlas and Vermont is quite tiny, so your ass is fine.
    I'm thinking about my blogging too, but maybe doing a little less and reading actual books more. I've tried it before and it never works out....
