Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Not a Grampy and I will be staying home this evening, sitting in the backyard at the tiki bar, watching the ball drop in New York and toasting with some champagne. Then we will watch the neighbors try and blow themselves up with fireworks. They actually do have some pretty neat displays, but rednecks and fireworks always make for some fun.

With this damn cold I am not even sure if I will be awake.

The evening will also be spent comforting my dog who despises loud noises, such as thunder and fireworks. He will start out with us in the screen enclosure, start whining, want to go inside. We will put him inside and then he will want to come out. He will want to be in our lap and then down on the ground. The poor critter just can't stand the noise. We have tried closing him in the bathroom, he just eats and claws right right the door. Yup, Shih Tzu with an attitude.

I have made a few resolutions, well maybe not resolutions, but changes to my life.

I want to quit smoking...again.

I want to decorate/paint my bedroom.

I want to clean the computer room so it is a computer room and not a junk room.

Now resolutions last for the entire year. So, I can work on these at my leisure!

Everyone be safe and take care. Hug your loved ones and friends!

Have a good New Year's Eve! I'll probably be in bed by 9, personally.

I am hugging you from the other side of the state. Damn, now I've got your cold...

Happy New Year! Hope you didn't have to call the fire department last night! :P

Happy, happy New Year to ya!

I live in a neighborhood of full fledged rednecks. Fireworks + rednecks = at least one call to the fire department (and usually a visit from the po-po)
