New Year's miscellaneous thoughts

-------------------------------------------
Fridays are perfect days for non-deep non-depressing thoughts, don't ya think?
-------------------------------------------
There ain't nobody in this world that's gonna do it for you...
Do what ya gotta do.
-Garth Brooks-

2006 Blessings

-Steve and I stayed reasonably healthy (though I seem to be coming down with something, so I'm not going to celebrate just yet).
-Sam stayed reasonably healthy...except for that strep thing that scared the crap outta us.
-Sam learned to write his name.
-Travis.
-We officially adopted Rosie Posie.
-Our house renovation began and was substantially completed. I am going to break in that jacuzzi tub this weekend.
-My Aunt's cancer turned out to be less serious than initially diagnosed.
-We went back to having two cars. That one-car thing was rough!
-Friends kept checking in on us, no matter how depressing we were.
-Work that we could stand (though it may not be our life's calling). I settled two major cases within the past month...a good way to finish off the work year.
-Chocolate.
-Crochet.
-------------------------------------------
This morning I was listening to the radio and they were talking about the most annoying song of all time. What do you think? I personally vote for the Macarena. But there were definitely some other noteworthy songs (Steve will be happy to know that Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On made the list). I will have to think on this some more before I publish my top ten list.
-------------------------------------------
John Edwards is going for the Presidential nomination. Interesting.
-------------------------------------------
I need to stop and get some perspective. Lately I have been reading blogs and message boards and taking great offense at some of the things posted...as if they are directed specifically at me (I'm not self-absorbed at all, am I?). It's really stupid and I need to get a grip. Unless, of course, you think people really ARE taking shots at me, however indirectly?

You see? Paranoia is my friend.
-------------------------------------------
When polite conversation turns to the possibility of one-child friends having another child and how they're afraid their current child won't get along with their potential child...is it wrong to say, "I don't know, my boys get along just fine?"
-------------------------------------------
The crane that Sam got for Christmas was broken right out of the box. Two little wires were disconnected. Luckily, Grandpa is a whiz with a soldering iron. Sam must have said, "thank you Grandpa," a dozen times. Too cute.
-------------------------------------------
I always wondered what the big deal was about MP3 players. Now I have a Verizon LG phone with an MP3 player in it (got it free with their New Every Two plan) and I have tunes at work. I LOVE IT! Now I see what I was missing.
-------------------------------------------
An update to the Menu for Hope raffle.

Total raised: $60,925.12
-------------------------------------------
Gonna be working on the last "room" upstairs this weekend. Have to paint and lay flooring, all the while stepping around the contractor's crap. Or maybe I'll just cart the contractor's crap downstairs and send him the message that I want him done and gone. hehehe
-------------------------------------------
I'd rather be crocheting right now. My projects are backing up on me. But if I can get the reno done this weekend then I can stitch to my heart's content in 2007. I hope this sinus infection holds off for a couple days.
-------------------------------------------
I really want to get on a horse this weekend so that I can say that I rode my horse before the end of 2006. I do not want, however, to have to say that I went to the hospital again before the end of 2006. I wonder if Luna would cooperate?

Glad to know I'm not alone with the paranoia.

I USED to be on someone's blogroll and now I'm not. It's been driving me nuts for days. I can't believe how personally I've taken this. It's like high school all over again.

I sure hope you enjoy your jacuzzi tub as much as I enjoy mine. It's been a lifesaver. Take your tunes with you... very relaxing.

I laughed out loud right in the middle there.
Yes my boys get along really well with their sisters too.

Happy New Year!

I love you comment about your boys getting along. That cracked me up! I think you should say it. I'd love to see the reactions!
