Christmas came and went and was actually very uneventful, as it has been every year for quite some time. We were supposed to go to Whiting, IN to Jeronimo’s nephew’s house but they had to cancel because supposedly his nephew had to work. Don’t know if I believe that or not because another brother of his went out to their sisters house and I think maybe that’s where they went. But if they did, that’s fine with me, it’s just that they didn’t have to make up a story. Why can’t people be honest about things. I am and that’s why they don’t like me because I voice my opinion and when I see something I don’t like I tell them about it. Am I wrong? Don’t know and I don’t really care. I’m too damned old to care about silly things like that anymore. I guess I’m the male counterpart of Maxine. LOL
Anyway, Jeronimo and I just stayed home, drank a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from Chile and ate tostadas of tinga, which is chicken in a chipotle sauce and oh my goodness is it delicious. I also make it with shrimp and that’s even better. Then after dinner, we opened our gifts. We don’t exchange too much, just one or two little things. Neither one of us really needs or wants anything special and if we do, we go out and buy it. And with the economy the way it is, it gets harder and harder to do anything anymore. Gas has gone sky high again and the other day I saw in one of the local stores a case of Coke was $8.99. My goodness, who in the heck can afford that? I got 5-12 packs for $10.00 the other day and that was a deal. Now this week, you buy 2 and get 3 free. Now THAT’S a real deal so will be going to stock up.
Don’t have any plans yet for New Year’s Eve. Don’t even know if I want to go out, what with the crazies roaming the streets. And if I do go out, I won’t be drinking much because I’m always the designated driver. Think I’ll switch that around this year and make Jeronimo the designated driver. I’m sure he won’t like that at all. Too bad, start the new year off right. LOL
Hope everyone has a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year. Please be safe.
