Uh Oh! Oh!

2008 is slowly creeping out along with all the Christmas decorations. Everything has been wrapped in tissue paper until next year. Cat Daddy will carry all the boxes out to the Christmas barn tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm stuck with trying to maneuver around them until then. Oh dear, I guess I really can't clean house until then. Too bad!
The ball is getting ready to drop to signal in the new year. I just hope I don't drop before it does. I've been thinking about resolutions and I've decided my New Year's resolution is no resolutions. I never stick to them anyway, so why beat myself up about it. I have no will power when it comes to anything. I like food, why give it up? I like being a procrastinator, why change now? I like being a little lazy now and then, who doesn't? I love shoes. Hey, that's the only size on me that hasn't changed. Why should I give up or change the things that make me me?
So I am just going to pray for the best in 2009 and forget the rest. And speaking of 2009 and New Year's Eve, I've started planning my outfit to wear.
What do you think? Will I clash with the black eyed peas? I thought I would go with a demure look this year, something a little more traditional. I said I wasn't going to change anything about me, but I think I need to be more assertive and I think this is a real power suit. Doesn't it just scream "I am woman, hear me roar!"? I don't know what C.D. has planned, but whatcha want to bet I can change those plans in a New York minute? I've got a new recipe for a Flirtini and I figure after I consume a few of those, I can squeeze into this for at least 5 minutes. Let's just hope I don't fall off those heels. In fact, thinking about it, this may be a sitting down ensemble. Ah heck, let's just see how it plays out!!!
Actually y'all, this was my bathroom decorations last year complete with a red tree in the bathtub and a rusty chandelier over the tub. Made for very scary bathing. I just knew that thing was going to fall and land smack dab on my head and then I would have to explain to the E.R. doctors why I needed a tetanus shot.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe New Year's eve. I'll wrap this up with "C'mon 2009, I'm ready and waiting on you!!!" HAPPY NEW YEAR!

So now I have to worry about my ensemble clashing with the black eyed peas...this time of year, it better match the long Johns...right!

This is gonna be a great year for all of us in the trade...it just feels right for some reason. We've tightened our belts, suffered with the best of 'em, now it's time to get on with the shoppin and really dress it up(you have a head start obviously)...they need us out there, they just forget sometimes, but we're gonna remind 'em with the cool stuff on our blogs, to entice a feeding frenzy and impress 'em with our smarts...right...

Well it sure did sound good...wish me luck this new Years Eve, my only Grandson turns 21 as the clock hits midnight...told him no birthday cash unless he gits a designated driver... do you think he lied to me??? ha...

Have a FAB New Year, Miss Fluffy Shoes!!!

Those feathery red shoes got me laughing out loud...BATHROOM DECORATIONS? I think it's a great New Year's Eve outfit. I bet Cat Daddy would like it. Everything goes with black eyed peas. Black is a nuetral after all.

Have a Happy New Years!!

I love the resolution of making no resolutions! My "resolutions" get a little more realistic each year...stay alive...be happier...be kinder. Forget those resolutions to get skinny and rich! But really how much richer could we get? Got wonderful families...adoring husbands...fantastic friends! To twist an old saying...not to resolve is to reselve!

Happy New Year!
