Our lazy Christmas day turned into a snowy Christmas night. A white Christmas is unheard of in these parts. But we got almost a foot of snow. Definitely one for the record books. You know that saying? Boys and their toys? Well, BSD has been working on becoming the poster boy.
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh?
I thought this was a cute idea. Until I got on the back of the
snowmobile golf cart to take these pictures. HOLY CRAP! BSD was flying through the streets. I was bouncing all around. It's amazing any of the pictures even came out. I was terrified that the ballerinas were going to totally eat it. But they thought it was the best time ever.
I loved having an excuse to hang out all day in my pj's. For four days. But today I had to get the heck out of the house! I didn't really care where I wound up. I just wanted to go some. where.
Somewhere turned out to be Border's and Trader Joe's. It was nice to be out in the land of the living again. Even if it was just to get a 2011 calendar and a stalk of Brussels sprouts. The sprouts make me smile. They're funky looking. Kind of like a giant caterpillar.
The calendar gives me the hives. It's no secret that I'm not an organized person. Calendars are for organized people. I stick one up on the wall. Write down everyone's name. And hope for the best. Luckily, BSD and my good friends are the organized type. They just tell me where I need to be if it's important.
So now I stare up at that calendar. With it's shiny New Year beaming back at me. And I wonder. What is 2011 going to have in store for us? Some more major losses are imminent. And I am paralyzed by this. I want to look ahead with excitement. To make some earth-shattering resolutions. But I just don't think this is the year. I have a few more hours to figure it out. In the meantime, I'm going to go back to see how I did on last year's resolutions. I'll let you know what I come up with.
How about you? Are you making any New Year's resolutions? Care to share?
