Here’s to 33

Yesterday I turned my Jesus year.

My Dad said I am closer to 40 than 25. To be fair, he said, he is closer to 70 than 55. Another trip around the sun.

Our supper plans were averted by Influenza A, so Country Man cut ribeyes, poured wine and cleaned up. I would like to say I am lucky but I think every person deserves a person like mine.

As I am typing this, my sick babe is running around the house with his shirt lifted up, squealing because he is showing off his belly and bellies are funny. I love my little weirdo.

Now he is smearing snot everywhere. This is the marking of a true toddler.

I hope 2016 has been as good to you as it was for me.

Happy New Year’s, friends!

  1. Get better, you can always clean up. Be thankful there are many like your man. As for your toddler, mine is avoiding yard work while watching TV, be thankful it’s just bellies and snot – the older they get the weirder the behavior. Have a happy new year – Peace.

  2. Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! Loved your description of your toddler! We just had all five of our grandchildren here for Christmas. Only one is still a toddler and he shares your son’s wonderful weirdness. He also shared his snotty germs with us and now we are both laid low with nasty colds! Oh well, it was worth it!

  3. So happy for you and your little family! Love that you’re still hanging around here. I say this every year, but I’m REALLY going to try writing more this year! Happy birthday and happy 2017!
