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.

My goodness we have too much snow.

We have 20.2” of snow on the ground.  My muscles hurt from all the shoveling I’ve done in the last few days.  And for the first time in 3 days, I was able to get the car out of the garage.  Someone had a jeep with a plow on the front and they just pushed all the snow down to the end of the alley and left it there.  Fortunately I have a 4-wheel drive and it wasn’t that bad getting out.  But still.  Why didn’t they push it to the side so cars could get through easily.  As long as they were doing the job, they should have done it right.

Here’s some pictures of the snow.

Jeronimo Shoveling the 20.2 inches of snow we got.

I hope it get up to about 80º F. tomorrow and melts all this snow.

Catching up a little bit

Woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning.  They are predicting anywhere from 2” to 7”, depending on which TV or radio station I happen to be listening to.  But then how many times are they right?  Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

Have been doing very well with my sugar testing.  I’ve lost weight and my daily sugar count is getting closer and closer to target.  I’m bound and determined to control it with diet and exercise.  Two days ago it was at 113, but then yesterday morning it was at 139, which isn’t too awfully bad, I don’t think.  And then this morning it was at 127.  I won’t be satisfied until it’s constantly at 100 or below.  But the important thing is that I know I can control it and the second benefit is the weight loss.  I am now down to a size 40 waist and even though it’s only a drop from 42, it’s a major accomplishment for me.  I still have one pair of slacks that are 38 and I’m hoping that by next week, I’ll be able to fit into them without having to struggle.  Dieting isn’t as bad as I thought it would be.  I quite smoking cold turkey, so I know I can stop eating just as easily.  Well, I don’t mean stop eating all together, just reducing the portion size and content.  I’m also taking additional fiber, which helps.

Christmas is right around the corner and I got my decorations up.  Just seems that Christmas doesn’t have the same importance anymore.  Both parents are gone and the brothers who are left are all off in other states doing their own thing, so it’s just me and Jerónimo and we don’t even exchange gifts anymore.  We used to, but we both have everything we need, so we’re going out today to get ourselves some new colognes.  We both have a passion for men’s colognes.  We only have about 25 different ones already.  Hey, some people collect other things, we collect colognes.

Well, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New year.

Merry Christmas
