I really wasn’t sure that I would after the year that we have had around here. It was the year of breakage apparently.
The washer, the dryer, the vacuum, the stove, my computer and well…the list just keeps going (I kept wondering if I was going to be next). The year 2010 ended with a BIG bang when our heat went out at some point really early on Friday morning. Lucky for us we have a wonderful friend who specializes in Heat and Air issues. Unlucky for us we live in HickTown and Friday was a Holiday. Meaning, there was no place open to get any parts and everything had to wait until Monday. It hasn’t been too bad, the weather was relatively mild all weekend until last night when it got down into the low 20′s. We are also really lucky in the fact that we have a fireplace. We didn’t have a lot of wood on hand though which will be remedied as soon as I can order a load because after almost starting a war over 10 pieces of wood I never want to have to rely on anyone again, plus the guy that sells wood around these parts is pretty easy on the eyes! In other news, if you ever hear of an arsonist in HickTown you can rule me out. I have found out that I can not get the fire going nor can I keep it going.
So, without any regret…I say GOODBYE! to 2010. I am in no way sorry to see that year go. It was a hard year in many different ways and I think it had a very profound effect on everyone I know.
Hello 2011! Oh 2011, I hope that you have wonderful things in store for each and every one of us!
I really don’t make resolutions but I do hope to change a few things in my life this year. One of the main ones being my sleep habits. But for now I am going to raid one of the medicine cabinets and find something for this busting headache and curl up on the couch with my snuggie and all the dogs. And in case you ever need to know…dogs make great heaters!
