New Year, Thank You

What a year, yes?

So much change, so much to wonder about in our future, so much… everything.

I am left looking towards the New Year wondering what is in store. As the Russians continue to rattle their swords, the Israelis, completely provoked, continue to pound the Gaza strip back to the Stone Age, the Indians and Pakistanis doing some sort of scary dance involving potential use of Nuclear Arms, Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea… on any given day, the position of scariest position can swap.

I worry for my children.

I have said to many the week after Obama was elected, ‘Now that he knows the secret handshake, I wonder how he views things? He now knows the REAL DEAL and is probably thinking, “F***. What was I thinking?” while Bush is left grinning inside thinking, “Suuuucker!””

As I said when he got elected, let us hope he doesn’t get us all killed.

And as much as that is a concern of mine, it isn’t for this year.

I have much hope for this year and not because of Mr. Hope and Change himself, but just because… it’s a new year and… I do.

Thank you to my readers who continue to come back and want to peak inside my crazy life.

Thank you for laughing with me when I was laughing so hard myself I thought I’d cry.

Thank you for encouraging me, when I was so down, I was not crying, but sobbing.

Thank you for shaking your head at the chaos my life is at times with the boys.

Thank you for your comments as there are times it has been the life ring that has kept me afloat.

Your comments are always way funnier than my stories. (Shout out to Peggy U, good Lord woman, you need to take that stuff on the road or write a book!)

In essence… Thank you for being YOU.

May your New Year be blessed and safe.

May your relationships be full and happy.

May you be content.

From the House of Boudicca to Yours… Happy New Year.

P.S. How is this for a bizarro first of the year article? Allow me to add... if you are an Italian man living in Italy, may you NOT be sleeping on the couch. Heh.

And give us a hand o’ thine !

Happy New Year to you. I wish you lived closer so I could see you and the boys more than twice a year.
