Hello again, all. How is everybody’s new year going so far? It’s about a week and a half in and I’d like to think that mine is going well at this point, or at least better than it was a couple of weeks ago.
I may be able to revive old Red! Yes, it will cost more to fix her than she is worth, but I cannot find the money for a new vehicle. However, I can find enough money to fix what is wrong with Red, worth it or not. I think at this point she is totally worth it. The mechanic has been flooded with repairs lately, but says he can try to get to work on it sometime next week. No word yet on how long he’ll take to fix it.
Let’s talk New Year resolutions… Have you made any? I decided not to make any but admit that I do find myself needing to make major changes in my life as usual. So without calling them resolutions, I’ll say that I am working on my weight, like every living and breathing woman, still need to quit smoking, I need to get out of the house more and not just to Wal-Mart and back, and I continue to try to stay on top of my health. Pretty much similar to what everyone else in the world works on.
New Year’s eve was fun this year. We went to a bowling alley with some friends, Terrance and Tara, and their kids. They are the cutest family.
Both of their web pages are full of kissy pics and obvious displays of their affectionate feelings for each other. They have the kind of obvious devotion to each other that makes the rest of the world sick with some kind of envy or jealousy.
I know all of these pics suck and as you can see, the lighting is terrible. Here are the boys enjoying a drink.
I caught Si sneaking sips of my drink now and then. One drink I had was really good; it was called a strawberry long island iced tea; it had I don’t know how many clear liquors in it with a dab of strawberry daiquiri mix. It was delicious! My usual drinks while out tend to be 151 and coke, or a long island iced tea because I have such a high tolerance for liquor. My high tolerance has always baffled me since I am not a heavy drinker on the norm; it just takes a lot to get where I want to go on the rare occasion that I do have a drink.
This is a bad pic of me feelin a pretty good buzz after about three and half drinks.
I had a ball with the people we were with. Their children are so well behaved; I never saw them get into trouble or attempt anything that may get themselves into trouble. And they are so helpful too! They helped by taking everyone’s turn at the lanes whenever one of us went outside to smoke. Lol They are truly the best behaved children I’ve seen in years. I don’t think anyone remembered or even really cared about any score, but Tara was the best. She bragged about being good because she was in a church league or something; she had every right to brag too. We all just wanted to be together and have fun; I hope they had as much fun as I did or more.
Here’s a better pic of a buzzed me after getting home that night.
Happy New Year world…
