You are invited to join in the PARTY!
It is BYOB and your PJs. I DO require you to check your car keys and all weapons at the door. I do NOT tolerate drunk driving at all! Hey, my house, my rules.
You are invited because I want to THANK YOU and, well, I COULD have done it without you (I AM a Warrior Princess you know), but doing it WITH you was more FUN!
So let's end this year on a high note. I am so looking forward to the new year!
I hit my goal weight this New Year's Eve morning. 2011 was my year of weight loss. That's how I will most likely remember it. Not really, I will probably remember the year as my DH fell out of a tree, breaking several bones, including his a$$, throwing me for a loop, causing me stress, year.
Read my bra strap blog if you need that story.
DH is healing nicely. His PT in impressed with his progress. He said he has 3 things working in his favor: his age, his fitness level at the time of his injury and his MOTIVATION. Motivation goes a long way! He can climb the stairs slowly now. He can sleep upstairs in our bed. Speaking of which...the designer hospital bed is still in our living room. DH decided on 12/23 that he did not need the bed any longer, but his employer did not have anyone available to pick it up. End of the month, end of the year, they are short one employee(DH), blah, blah, blah. So I STILL have the designer bed. On 12/24 we had 20 people here so we put a Michigan blanket on it(just to irritate our Buck-nut relatives) and used it as extra seating.
Wasn't allowed to decorate it as I wanted because we were just "borrowing" the bed.
I did receive a swell Christmas present...that I am still displaying...a strand of SHOTGUN SHELL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. My inner redneck loves them!
I am thinking of changing SS-- Stupid Steve to TS--meaning Teflon Steve. Nothing sticks to him! The lawyer, that I pay for, through taxes, I mean, got his doctor, that I pay for, to get him out of jail, that I pay for.
WTH He got out of jail and went to Florida with the plane ticket that my DH bought for him in exchange for helping him cut down the tree. And he has procession of Steve's snowblower as collateral.
I thought my head was going to explode when I discovered that little tidbit! If you live in FL, I am truly sorry. I have no problem paying for his jail accommodations when he is here. I like to know WHERE he is.
On Christmas Eve my MIL suggested that one of my DH's nephews(her grandson) come over and finish cutting up the tree. The same nephew that, several years ago, traded 2 of my DH's chainsaws for drugs.
DH said thanks, but no. I can assure you, there will none of my in-laws at the Goal party.
My life is still not back to" normal" after the whole tree ordeal.
I am a runner though. That bitter old woman gym teacher I had in 7th grade, told me I would never be an athlete.
I should look her up, just to give her a piece of my mind, she could use it. Not sure if she is still living. What a terrible thing to say to a young girl. That stuck with me my entire life. She is not invited to the Goal party either.
Well, I am off to make some yummy(healthy) appetizers for our party! We WILL be having black-eyed peas, pork sausage, and sauerkraut at midnight, of course! Will play a party game of some sort to determine who gets to sleep in the designer hospital bed.
