Wishcasting Wednesday

Join us!

Today's prompt is: What do you wish for?

I wish for this year of sadness to be over. I wish for the next one to be happier. Better. Some year just give you so much more than you feel like you can handle, you know? 2012 was one of those years, actually, the past 3 have been that way. I'm ready for a year where I can just better myself & stop care-taking someone else's addiction. A year where I feel like I matter.

We finally got the living room cleaned up and got the tree up & decorated. We bought a brand new one this year, complete with pine cones & berries. It's much taller than we've ever had before & I'm so in love with it! I've gotten all of the gifts we bought for family put in bags, but haven't added tissue or tags, yet. I got distracted when I realized I had misplaced the gift I bought my sister-in-law a few months back. I tore the bedroom up looking for it, but still haven't, so I'm left to assume it got accidentally thrown away & will now have to be replaced.

But, the bedroom is nearly ready for Yule rite, now that I'm having to clean it back up from my futile search! I also found a bunch of shirts I bought to go with my daughter's Yule gift, but since she has decided that I'm not welcome in her life anymore, I have no idea what to do with them. They don't fit me, and they're definitely designed for a woman, so my son has no use for them, either. Maybe I'll donate them to the women's shelter or something.

Sunday Stealing

Join us at Sunday Stealing!

What is your favorite possession? I'm not sure.. my laptop or my XTerra?

Do you like to read? If so, which books do you love best?  Yes. Anything with a little suspense or some creep factor.

Do you have any pets? Yep, a dog. Her name is Tiny, she's a German Shepherd mix & she's 9 years old.

What was your favorite food as a child? Is it the same now? Anything my mom hid & declared forbidden. No, now I'm into sushi & such.

What is your favorite thing about blogging? I really believe it helps keep me as sane as I am.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Right here is fine.

What is your favorite number? I don't really have one.

Which of these things would you find hardest to give up for a year? Chocolate, reading, coffee or smoking? Reading, hands down.

If you could make your life into a movie, what would you name it.. and who would you want to play you? Divorcing my Daughter.. umm.. I guess whoever wanted to?

If you had £20,000  for a shopping spree, what would you buy? I'd probably just pay off my debt, because that would give me more money in a month to spend.

If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? Probably no one, I'm pretty shy & don't like eating in front of people I don't know.


So. I let my domain registration lapse, so I'm having to rebuild this site the best I can from scratch. Right now, I can't even figure out how to add a blogroll, so bear with me & I'll try to have things back up & running as quickly as possible.
