All Right, All Right, All Right, enough already with the white stuff.
Well Merry Christmas to all, late, and Happy New Year. We had an ok year, or so I thought. Last night we we're talking and I learned that 08 wasn't all that great of a year. Although, being the optimistic person, that I am, I have to try to find all the good in everything that effects my life.
So lets recap. Last Christmas. meaning the one in 07 We had an ice dam on our roof which Caused a leak in Deanna's ceiling, which ran down the wall, which came into our sitting room, Which made us move all the furniture and rugs, keeping pans everywhere, as we all know water is not a friend to hardwood floors. We thought we had it contained. well NO, it spread. So we lived with a crappy ceiling for a bit.. No biggie, it finally dried up. Called the repair guy. $$$$ later, (Optimistically) we have a new ceiling.
However, also in this process, All that snow and ice last year, Also made layers of ice on the roof, One night while sitting eating a nice meal, I swear a 747 crashed in our back yard, it was about 1,000,000,000 pounds of ice and snow, it slid off the roof and crushed the back deck. So next, We call the repair guy, $$$$$ of $$$$$ later, (Optimistically) we have a New deck, bigger and better. But because you have a new deck, you know what comes next right??? You guessed it New deck furniture. & of course with new furniture, comes, are you ready for it, Ha New dishes to match, as you can't really use glass or china for outdoor use. So high quality plastic. (I swear to you, If we we're not cooking on the grill, I cooked inside and took everything outside to eat.) I figured we paid all the $$$ we were going to use it.
Next. Well I could keep going. but, well who needs to hear all that.
Our latest venture, was on Christmas day, Mom has had a Stroke. She is Much better now. She can't speak yet, but it able to communicate with Yes and no, and she is a darn good Crazy eight player as well. She is finally in a rehab center. So we're off to a great year in 09.
So other than that, I guess the lesson I have learned from 08. Was that no matter what, You have to look at life and take the good with the bad, and try to change the bad into as much good as possible.
For now all of you take care.
see you next time.
