I have been truly blessed on a number of levels, have seen and endured a lot of changes, have survived milestones and growing pains, and am all the better for it. As we move forward into 2013, my prayer is that I can continue to feed from the positive, draw strength from the negative, and relinquish from my life that which only tears me asunder.
I don't make New Year Resolutions but I do have a lot of plans for this upcoming year and I have set a few goals for myself and for my family, and I'm currently in the process of rearranging scheduling so that some of these goals can be met in a reasonably short period of time.
I eagerly welcome 2013 - upgrade to a better quality of life - in progress!
Miss Ma'am had herself a grand time ringing in the New Year.
This is the first year since Miss Ma'am was 2 that JD's been home on New Year's Eve and we all had quite a wonderful evening with good food, a little non-A bubbly, some front yard fireworks, and a whole lot of fun!
I Love This Girl!
New Year's Eve - Gangnam Style
Laughing at herself!! She was
so funny trying to do that Gangnam Dance!
Bring On 2013! (and before anyone goes over the top,
this was Sparkling Cherry Juice)
Front Yard Fun!
Some of the fireworks were rather pretty for an inexpensive box-set.
The Midnight Hour
Celebrating With Sophie
Our poor Sophie Girl wasn't too keen on all the excitement.
After three tranq-treats that were spread out over a seven hour
period of time, poor Sophie acted like she was the local town drunk;
rolling on the furniture and floor, and howling as though
she were actually singing. She was quite entertaining - Poor Baby!
She's another Daddy's Girl - spoiled rotten, but she
seemed most comfortable with JD the majority of the evening.
She was finally able to relax once all was quiet again.
Happy New Year, Y'all!!!
