Well, here we are, 2014

So, did everyone have a nice New Year celebration?  I hope yours was uneventful and all arrived home safe and sound.  Mine was nice.  Spent it with my extended family.  Managed to get home safely by 1:00 A.M. in spite of the snow that was falling.  Only one thing marred the evening for me and that was that the person I care most about in this world didn’t even bother to wish me a Happy New Year.  To be honest, I was very depressed because of it and some pretty crazy thoughts passed through my mind.  I’m glad I hadn’t drank any more than I had because God only knows what would have happened.  I know, the world was not going to come to an end, but it’s the little things like that that show that someone really cares about you.  I said “Happy New Year” and it was ignored and it hurt, what can I say.

Anyway, today it is snowing like crazy here and we already have about 6” and the possibility of another 2 to 6+ inches could fall by tomorrow afternoon.  Mother nature really must be mad at us for some reason.  Oh, wait, that the “global warming” everyone is talking about.  Yeah, that’s why they are stuck in the ice in the Antarctic and can’t get out.  I never did believe it and attribute what is happening to normal weather cycles, not global warming.

Ok, hope everyone has a fantastic 2014 and everyone’s lives are filled with much Health, Happiness and Prosperity.

God bless you all.

Well, the year is almost over

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.
