Well... okay. Not an era. But certainly the end of a year. 2013 to be exact. Which I have to say was a year way better than the year before. Thank God. And... a year which I hope will not even compare to the one that's coming up. For I sorta have high hopes for 2014. I know... I'm such an optimist. Or a fool. I'm not sure which one just yet. But in any case...
I am trying to figure out what was the best thing that happened in 2013 and I
always keep coming back to the times that I spent with my kid. I always love
being with him for he makes me so very happy with his humor and smile and even
his crapola. So basically if being with him was the best of the year, then I'd
almost have to say I guess everything else was pretty much secondary and thus in that tier, probably equal in the
I do remember, with major happiness I might add, the night I went to a new
Italian restaurant about a half hour away from here. Nothing fancy but OMG. The
food I had there was just unf'ingbelievable. Seriously... my taste buds were
doing a dance all OVER the place. That was definitely a red letter evening.
I also have to say the most recent thrill was creating all my new necklaces
for even as they were being made, I was in my glory as I laid out each
bead, knowing that in the end it was going to be a knockout.
I was also tap dancing all over the place on the day my Medicare kicked in.
Man... just the thought of not having to shell out over $1000 a month put my
delight barometer way up in the clouds. I'm telling you... Medicare is one of the all time
best inventions ever.
Oh yeah... I also have to say that the first time I heard Robin Thicke sing
Blurred Lines I thought I died and went to heaven. I mean it. I was in the car
and I could hardly get out because I transfixed to the lyrics and music.
Needless to say one of the WORST moments of the year was when stupid ass
Miley Cyrus totally screwed up Robin's performance with her utterly disgusting
looking tongue but that's another story altogether.
Another thing that stands out in my mind was when I was in Ft. Lauderdale at the
beginning of the year and I got to spend so much time with my niece, Laura.
Besides... anyone who is so willing to take me out for a hot pastrami sandwich
any time I want, is definitely someone you just gotta love forever.
Anyway.... as I said... 2013 was pretty much a decent year. But I am totally
hoping 2014 surpasses it by leaps and bounds. I also hope I score big on any one of
the major upcoming Power Ball Lotteries. Whoa. Would THAT ever make it bonus year. But
I just hope my health remains good. And I hope yours does as well. I hope we all have a safe, loving, hell of a great New Year. I don't know about you... but me?? Holy Shit. I so deserve it.
