New Year Reflections December 31, 2008Posted by Mistress B in Ramblings.
Well I guess it’s that time of the year again for a sappy, reflective ‘look what I did this year and here’s what I’m going to do next year’ post
I’m thinking that I should do what I did last year and start with the ‘anti-resolutions’ ™ first!
So here’s my list of things I WON’T be doing again in 2009
- associating with truly mad internets who turn into scary ass obsessive stalker types
- dropping an axe on my foot WHILE hosting a slumber party for 9 year old boys
- contemplate driving myself to hospital after self inflicting a potentially serious injury
- going anywhere near an axe without my fireboots on
- having any form of contact with my freak ex except through a lawyer
- letting Miss Lou out of reach again
All in all though, it’s been a pretty good year.
I managed not to burn anything down this year.
I haven’t hit any kangaroos.
I also haven’t been arrested, moved house, been sick for most of the year, or had any more surgery. I have put on a little more weight though (grrr) and been involved with legal wranglings with the freak though, but still, that’s not a bad effort at keeping my resolutions for the year! lol
And highs! We’ve had some great high points this year!
Our fantastic camping trip, our trip to Sydney, meeting up with my coven sisters, bring Widdle Shamrock home for a few days, playing in snow for the first time, trips to Wollongong and Dubbo, celebrating my tenth wedding anniversary, growing some of our own veges this year.
Oh and by the way, my goal of having a home grown salad for Christmas? We did it! We had our own lettuce, carrot, shallots, onions, and snow peas and we swapped some lettuces with another home gardener in exchange for apple cucumbers and beans. Enough for a salad of sorts! lol. We did buy a capsicum and some tomatoes, but still, I’m really proud of that effort!!
The year ahead will be challenging I’m sure. Readjusting to having 3 kids underfoot instead of 2, dealing with a teen dealing with adjusting to another new school and trying to fit in with her peer group, stretching our finances to feed the extra mouth, balancing everyones needs/wants/activities/challenges/etc out and continuing to try to simplify our lives in terms of how we live and the things that are important to us is going to take a lot of effort, a lot of compromising, a lot of negotiating and a lot of energy. But it will be oh so worth it!
I think the simplifying bit will be key…… so with this in mind we of the coven fame and our select group of friends have declared 2009 to be the year of NO FUCKTARDS!! (now imagine yourself saying that in the voice of that dude from the short lived national bingo show while wearing a hinky ref shirt )
By fucktards we mean those idiots who suck us dry and kill our joy. That means you. Yes you, she of the ‘my-shit-don’t-stink-and-you’d-better-believe-that-you-are-jealous-of-me-and-I’ll-tell-everyone-I-know-how-you-picked-on-me’ pathetic sub fucktard species. And you. Yes you of the ‘oh-poor-little-me-having-so-much-on-my-plate-but-don’t-feel-sorry-for-me-or-suggest-that-I’m-depressed-or-I’ll-deny-it-all-and-throw-a-tantrum’ idiot sub fucktard species. And you, of the ‘oh-look-at-me-and-my-imaginary-illness- oh-please-please-please-pay-attention-to-meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!’ sub fucktard cross cruel bitch species. That doesn’t mean you, the person over there who likes to hang about but isn’t sure what to say. We like you. *pats you on the head*
Now can you imagine how much less stressful life would be with no fucktards in it? Wouldnt your life benefit from having a few less energy sucking, emotionally draining fucktards sapping the life out of you?
Let us unite and free ourselves of fucktards for good! Join our fucktard revolution and declare 2009 your year of freedom!
