Here's a way to ring in the new year...

*ring ring* (that's a cell phone)

Me: "Hey baby"

That Guy: "where are you?"

Me: "out and about, why"

That Guy: "there was an accident involving your car at your house, I think you should get home."

I hadn't a clue what i was walking in to, but my heart sank when I saw this:

So yeah some guy, with no insurance and no id did this to my car, took out some landscaping belonging to my landlords and hit the back of a truck.

Thank goodness no one was hurt, and I got to see his ass hauled off in cuffs.

Happy new Year!

The little things

This Christmas had a different vibe to it. I felt a bit distant from my family, kinda like an outsider looking in on a family. It was odd. Possibly because we haven't been together as a family in a long time. Because we are all doing our own things, because our lives are growing up and growing a bit apart.
My Christmas was full of so many things- literally. I realize how damn spoiled I am- and I appreciate ALL of it. It's amazing. The one thing that made me smile more than anything was a little note tucked into my stocking- that is now in my wallet so I can read it anytime I feel a bit down.
I just can't believe how time flies, how this year is almost over, how the years are speeding by at warp speed. It's crazy. I have made so many changes in my personal life this year- and I feel like I have a better grasp on me. Letting the guard down a bit, easing up on myself and others, realizing that the world is what it is, and if at some point in time I may have the chance to change bits of- awesome. If not, I'll try to make it the best for myself.
I hope you all had a great Holiday season, and lets bring 2007 in with fireworks.
I hope to see lots of smiles, hear lots of laughs, and feel lots of hugs in the upcoming year.

Tis the Holiday season- yet again

It's crazy how fast time seems to be flying the older I get. Christmas is 7 days away- wow. My little sis is on her way home from school today, and we get to have her in town for a little over a week- and I'm super excited about that. I miss her like crazy when she's gone as long as she has been.

The parties have started, tree decorating is done, wrapping as well. I swear it was just the end of September, that I had just moved in to my fab apartment, that it was still super warm out during the day. Now, I'm somewhat settled in my "new" place, its butt freaking cold outside, and this morning my car was a giant ice cube. (Good thing I have new windshield wipers.... LOL)

This Christmas feels a bit different than that past few have for me. I'm happy. Not smiling but grumpy inside, I am truly happy. So many wonderful things and people in my life these days, there isn't a reason in the world for me not to be happy. My family has had some low points this year with losses and fights with health issues, but all in all- everyone is great. Something I have prayed for, for a very long time.

There will be another butt at our table Christmas dinner this year, and my family is happy about that.

One thing that is really hard for me to deal with is seeing my parents and Gramma tear up. My mom cried last weekend- said it didn't feel like the holidays because the house is so empty. My sister is up at school, and I haven't been around much. It made my heart drop. Made me realize I need to step it up with the family again. I know that I get lonely from time to time, but never expected my parents- who have not only one another, but 3 cats and a dogs to keep them entertained- to get lonely without my sis and I there. Crazy.

So, I wish everyone and their families a warm, cozy and safe Holiday season. I hope to see lots of smiling pictures after Christmas!

My couch

is a bit small for two to snuggle on. But so wonderful to snuggle with someone on.
Winter rocks for the snuggle factor.

I love waking up and falling asleep to the sound of rain.

I hate laundry, but clean panties are a necessary evil.

I'm caught up on my desk from being on vacation, although the work keeps pouring in.

I am done with Christmas shopping, and tonight will be done with all of my wrapping.

Haircut tonight, sleep after that.

*Big hugs*
