Let's get drunk and be somebody!!!

Toby Keith certainly knows how to name songs. Anyway, it's New Years Eve and we are getting ready to get our drink on. I may need a twelve step program after tonight because I have enough alcohol to pickle my liver.

I'm making chili and cornbread, cake pops and jello shots. We'll play games and once we are all tipsy enough, we'll play sing star. That noise that sounds like a cat being tortured? That's me, singing R-E-S-P-E-C-T with my sister while the kids howl with laughter. I always lose that game but everyone gives me an A for enthusiasm so what the hell.

2012 is going to be an amazing year. Even with the bumps we ran into, 2011 was a good year for Hailey and I and I expect 2012 to be even better.

 I've made a list of resolutions, some of them I'll share with you tomorrow as soon as I can see out of both eyes, but for today I want to say thank you.

Thank you for reading what I write, when I started this I thought the only person who would read it would be my mom. Thanks for commenting, comments make me happy. Thank you for sharing your lives with me through your blogs and your comments. Thank you for offering support through the storms and most of all, thank you for making me laugh when I had my sad pants on.

I would like to give you all a money tree but since mine died without reproducing I'm afraid that all I have for you are wishes.

I wish you a year of love, surrounded by people you love.

I wish you laughter every day, a good belly laugh is one of the best things in the world.

I wish you peace, from your demons and those that belong to others.

I wish health for you and those you love, as a matter of fact I'm going to drink to your health over and over and over tonight so you should be covered.

Mostly I wish that you all live in your happy place, that little place in your heart that says all is right in the world.

Be safe, have fun, don't do anything stupid, but if you do, for God's sake, blog about it so I can laugh my ass off!


  1. Thank you Carol, for all the laughs and dreams and pains you have shared with us. You help make it all a little more bearable. I still love to see that smile. Love you. Michael C

  2. Thank for all the good wishes, Carol. Happy New Year to you and yours!

  3. What an awesome post. Thank you. I'm excited to read your list of resolutions.

  4. I adore you, both in the bathtub and out. You were one of the first people that I met in this here place...and you have become one of the special ones. Whatever you do, stay you. Or I'll divorce ya'!

    Love and hugs,



Say it, you know you wanna!
