Happy New Year!!!

My Wish for You in 2011

May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $50 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May the problems you had, forget your home address!

In simple words ...............

May the year 2011 be the best year of your life!!!

Happy New Year!!


Christmas Past, Present and Future. . .

I can remember how Christmas was growing up and even into my adulthood. Although I basically grew up as an only child we always had nice Christmases. It was either the 3 of us (mom, dad and I) or many times my Nana (my mom’s mom) would be with us as well. We always (and I do mean always) decorated the outside of the house. It didn’t matter where we lived it got decorated. Dad took care of that. It seemed that each year we he would do more. Even though he would “complain” about it and say how he “hated” doing it and that next year he wasn’t going to decorate he would always look forward to doing it the following year. Each year we he always added something, more lights, or snowmen (mom collected snowmen so they were our theme) something always seemed to get added. Mom and I took care of the inside. In the beginning the living room would be the main room that would be decorated. It always looked nice. As time went on and we collected more items we were able to decorate all of the rooms. It looked great! All of the rooms managed to have a little bit of Christmas spirit and the outside was covered with it as well. It was always nice to have people over because they always remarked at how nice the house looked inside and out. I use to tease about our house looking similar to Clark Griswold’s house but let’s face it ours always looked better. Heck we always took first place in our neighborhood. We usually either had a few relatives over for Christmas dinner or some friends that didn’t have family and they would come over for the day. That was always nice.

Recently Christmas is lacking a whole lotta something, ok a whole lotta everything. My father passed so the outside no longer gets decorated. That sucks!! Even if we couldn’t have the house decorated as awesomely as he had always done it, it would still be great to at least have some lights up. Ya know? And now we hardly even decorate inside the house. We still have a ton of decorations for inside and outside it is just too damn difficult for me. This also sucks. All the decorations are in the sheds. With neither mom nor I feeling all that hot to trot we are not up to doing all that. It is A LOT of work to make several trips to bring in Christmas decorations, then to set everything up and then to take all of the empty boxes back to the sheds. I know that would take me several days and then would put me outta commission for several more days. I barely have a small tree up with lights only on it and a few Christmas decorations, and I do mean very few. Now it is just mom and I. There is nothing wrong with that; I mean quiet Christmases can be nice…sometimes. Now I cook a small Christmas dinner for the 2 of us and I don’t have to worry about having to entertain anyone if either of us are not feeling well on that day. We can lay around in our pj’s or stay in bed till whenever depending on how we are feeling.

As for Christmas Future I can only hope it will be similar to Christmas Past. I know that may sound a bit strange to many of you but humor me. I would like to see the outside and inside decorated like it had been in Christmas Past. I would love to be able to be the one doing the inside decorating again. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to feel well enough to have people over and cook for a house full? Be able to decorate and not be out of commission for several days? But one of the things I hope for most of all  is to have a child to celebrate Christmas with because those are the best holidays yet. Wouldn't you agree??


Senior Texting Codes

I have never been one that is all that into texting.  Yes I do text but that is not my preferred way of communication. A friend of mine sent this to me and I found it rather funny...yet scary at the same time because in the back of my mind I was thinking how much longer will it be till I am using these codes???


Since more and more Seniors are texting and tweeting, there appears to be a need for a STC (Senior Texting Code). If you qualify for Senior Discounts this is the code for you.

ATD: At The Doctor's ( I could use this now, as that is where I spend most of my time now)
BFF: Best Friend Farted
BTW: Bring The Wheelchair  (I have to do that already)
BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth
CBM: Covered By Medicare (Soon I will be covered by medicare.. and that sucks!)
CUATSC: See You At The Senior Center
DWI: Driving While Incontinent  ( I am almost there now...)
FWB: Friend With Beta Blockers
FWIW: Forgot Where I Was  (This happens to me already and I am not a senior)
FYI: Found Your Insulin
GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low
GHA: Got Heartburn Again  (Join the club.. that is my life)
HGBM: Had Good Bowel Movement  (those are few and far between... they should be celebrated!)

LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out

ROFL, CGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing, Can't Get Up ( Gee, sounds too familiar)
SGGP: Sorry, Gotta Go Poop  (When you gotta go, you don't want to lose the moment they aren't often)
TTYL: Talk To You Louder ( I do this anyway for my mom)
WAITT: Who Am I Talking To? (I wonder this alot already)
WTFA: Wet The Furniture Again (Thank Goodness not yet anyway!)
WTP: Where's The Prunes?  (I will use something else besides prunes...yuck!)
WWNO: Walker Wheels Need Oil (hopefully I will be able to afford a slick scooter!)
GLK: Gotta Go, Laxative Kicking In (and we shouldn't keep that waiting b/c then the furniture will be wet!)

The items in blue ( ) were my comments but I hope you all got a giggle out of them.  I am assuming that at that age there is not sexting going on... if so I know I sure the hell won't be involved in it..hell I am not now, I wouldn't want to scare the hell outta anyway and then get sued for it!!!


Deck the Halls - sung by animals on YouTube

I had 2 different friends send this to me.  It was too funny not to share.  That is in case you haven't already seen it.  I hope you enjoy it.


Drunk on Christmas

First of all if you don't already know I am a HUGE country music fan.  Secondly I am also a huge Big & Rich fan whether they do a group or solo album I am there. So when I heard that John Rich and Jimmy Fallon did a song together and about Christmas I had to hear it. I find Jimmy Fallon very funny, and knowing how John Rich plays up, it was absolutely hilarious. 

This is basically about all of those "Dysfunctional Families" out there and how we cope with them or at least how most of use would sure like to cope!!
