Back to Life

Happy New Year everyone! How are you?  What's going on in your part of the world?  As for me, well, I'm still not completely 100 % over this crap that took hold of me the week before Christmas and has maintained a steady choke-hold ever since, but I am better. Thank God! I really thought I was dying there for a few days.  The last week of December I managed to work a total of two days! Woohoo! I was too sick to go in the rest of the week. The plus side?  I got to rest.  The negative side?  I don't have sick time accumulated yet at work.  Bleh.  Oh well, aside from that, everything is great! This New Year's Eve, I totally made up for missing Christmas!  I spent it with family and a few close friends.  We ate, we drank, we danced and we sparkled! And I totally rocked my red panties!  A great time was had by all.  Although a bit low key and quieter than in years past, it was one of the best evenings I've had in a long time.  Nothing like being surrounded by your family to liven your spirits and make you appreciate what you have.  How was your celebration?

So I'm excited about this new year already. I have new ideas and goals and am ready to implement them into my life.  I plan on working on my blog to make it a better place for you to enjoy when you visit.  Writing will also consume my life like it has never done before.  I grew lazy and let opportunities slip by because of this, last year. Well, not happening again this year! 

That's all for now.  I'm tired and still have a thousand and one things to do before I go to bed.  You know the drill peeps, it's Monday, make it a great week!

Everyone around me seems to have come down with something just in time for the holidays. My wife has been laid out flat for the past week, and has even lost her voice. Grrrr!

But it sounds like you recovered nicely, Yvonne. Happy new year to you, and I'm so glad to see you rip-roaring and ready to go. That's the spirit!

But, uh . . . rocking the red panties? TMI? LOL! :)

Love your attitude! I'm glad you had a fun New Years. As you know, I did too! I'm glad you are feeling better and got to wear the red panties.

David- No such thing as TMI in a blog, I'm afraid! And I was referring to the fact that I took part in a long-standing NYE tradition for single woman. -Wearing red panties brings you luck in love in the new year. Pfft! I call fraud! lol

Belle- Thanks doll! I'm getting stronger every day. Glad you had a great time!

Ah, okay. I can't believe I forgot that about the red panties! I remember someone else telling me about that, er . . . tradition a while back.

Well, good luck! :)
