The head has cleared, my throat no longer feels like the tunnel of death, and I can sort of tell that there are things on Earth that don’t smell like s*ot.  Sorry.  I just can’t spell it.  It’s disgusting.

But I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to say Happy New Year to you all.  I tried to make it around to your blogs and hope I didn’t forget anyone.  Well, it’s not exactly like Santa trying to get around to all the giftees in the world, you know.  But still.

It was nice “seeing” you again and reading about what you’ve been up to even if the MoH is now in bed, I’m up alone, the T.V. that Best Buy has still not delivered parts on is blaring, the RT is snuggled in his bottom bunk unfortunately not as much on the mend as I, and well…

…I’m not sleepy.

Must have been all that decadent lounging on the sofa and in bed for two days with Kleenex sticking out of my nose.

Hopefully you’re smiling.  And if I can wish anything for you, it’s that.  That you’ll smile as you head into 2008, believing that good will happen when you least expect it.

Imagine what could happen if you did expect it.

See you soon.

  13. nursemyra — might the gimcrack have fixed me up sooner? And have you reserved a place for me for my later years? ; D Thanks for your good wishes.

    Yay, mel! I’m humming all these sappy smiley songs in my head right now. Really.

    Hey Robert, I totally know you’re smiling. It was that last piece of writing you shared from your past.

    Hi Beth! I’m thinking you’re the smiling guru. I’ll be checking in on you regularly to see what I can learn. Woot!

    paisley — so cool that you caught that line. It’s something I have to work on every single day. Maybe I could sell t-shirts with it. We could make hundreds… : )

    Dave, I’m so the schoolie, the change comes quite naturally. But where in hell have the years gone, huh?

    Olga — hook me up! With two hooks, of course. I’m the hostess with the mostest!

    Hey Ben — your site was “under construction” when I checked early this am…And conquering is what I am really good at. Okay, so maybe only queen of my own castle. Um…homeowner? Yah.

    Hi Mom — I was worried that you were going to get our creepin’ crud, so glad it was only a drive-by. Eat more jalapenos. Woot!

    Hey meleah — yes, it was so swell to be once again the 90th person to comment on your blog. You are such the party girl! Thanks for your wishes…

    Chefmom — No, I haven’t gotten my camera back (it’s on its way) and in the kitchen, it’s sort of like having to cook without a spatula. You get it, right? What have I come to? A dork, that’s what!

    Francis, you are Mr. Inspirational signed, sealed, and delivered. No kidding. And an amazing writer. Thanks for your kind thoughts!

  14. I feel naked in the kitchen with our a spatula and/or tongs. I’m hearin’ ya sista!!
