Yeah, yeah, I know. That’s almost a cuss word… whatev. It’s sums up my feelings for the year so far. Yee – haw. I spent most of the Christmas break sick, so it’s like I sort of missed the whole thing. Today Alan was sick with it… we pretty much sat around and did nothing… oh, football, of course. Cause that is a thrill to me. And I’m thinking "so it begins…" sigh. Then I spent some time yelling at my daughter for losing her favorite Christmas gift – less than a week after Christmas!! Geez, she’s 13 years old! She can’t keep track of a ring?! I was sooo miffed at her… and to be honest, I’m not sure why. I mean, because she’s careless? Sure. Because I’ve spoiled her and "things" come way too easy? Yeah. Because "things" mean too much to me? Maybe. Because I loved the silly little ring as much as she did? Perhaps. I don’t know. Then I spent awhile in my room, crying. And I could have done that for far longer than I did – but then people would’ve started asking questions…. told me not to feel the way I feel…. ugh. I soooo need my own house, my own space. More than a bedroom. Yeah. No sign of that happening anytime soon.
Here’s hoping your New Year is off to a better start than mine!
