Hello 2012, where the hell have you been?

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years Eve, I find the older I get the less alcohol it takes to make me ready for bed almost too early to celebrate.

We stayed up and greeted the New Year, even Ivy was up late banging pots and pans and watching the fireworks. One more reason why I rock as her favorite aunt.

Now it's 2012, the year I don't have to be responsible. Woo hoo, I've been waiting for this. Now that Hailey is 18 and she can make her own mistakes decisions without my help, I'm on my own. I can run with scissors without worrying about being a bad influence. This year is gonna kick ass!

So I made some resolutions, set some goals and I'm going to share them with you so that you can all remind me when I'm falling down on the job and I can say "Kiss my grits, I don't have to be responsible this year!"

*I will blog every single day. Even if it's just one word, I will blog, there is stuff taking up space in my head so I'm gonna give it to all of you. You can thank me later.

*I will be healthier. Yes, this means I will exercise and stop smoking. Shut up, I mean it this time.

*I will finish my novel, tentatively titled Sister Story- cause I'm creative like that. I think it's good, maybe someone else will too.

That's it, just those three things because otherwise, I'm pretty much perfect. Ok, so there's more but I can't tell you everything.

One last thing, last night at midnight we went around the table and everyone had to tell the group one wonderful thing that was going to happen to them in 2012. Since I asked the question I had a smart ass answer ready, I was pretty sure I was going to become Trace Adkins next wife but when it was my turn, somehow the following words fell out of my mouth:

       I'm going to fall in love

What the hell? I really wish my mouth would talk with my brain before it opens up and let's my heart fall out.


  1. And let's hope that wish comes true in 2012! Happy New Year my friend. Never hurts to want something great does it?

  2. Ya never know! ;) I didn't have a great start to 2012 but I'll still give it a chance. Happy New Year!

  3. Here's hoping 2012 brings you everything you wish for!

  4. Some of us are in love with it's your turn! May this 2012 be better than the last one. (Wait. I need to rethink that!)


Say it, you know you wanna!
