Oh let's just call this year a fail. I failed. I was supposed to blog about tacky holiday decorations but I failed to carry my camera when the inspiration stuck. Sorry. I've been a very bad blogger. Here's to the end of a crappy year! 2011 was full of death and despair. There is nothing like going to three funerals of three young men within the last three months of the year. The first was my brother-in-law, the oldest at sixty, the second was a dear former student who died of suicide at 23, the third was a 14 year old current student who died in a tragic skateboarding accident. That was last week so I apologize for the foul mood.
November 29 had surgery to remove a wandering hemo clip that "wandered" from a prior surgery to a most uncomfortable place.
I struggled the first six months of the year to lose about 12 pounds. I believe I've found every single one of them once again. Sigh. Judging by the way my jeans fit, I believe they brought a few friends along.
Anyway I am looking forward to 2012! The excitement of a presidential election year. The Republicans are all vying for the religious vote. Mitt Romney is actually somewhat sane but the Religicans don't like him because he is a Mormon! The rest of them are totally and completely ridiculous. I am just afraid one of the lunatics might actually get elected. Then what?
Oh, some are saying the world is supposed to end? That might be a better option than Newt Gingrich.
