Once again the conversations between my daughter and granddaughter hit Facebook and do not disappoint.
KB: *conspiratorially* Mommy, did you know something about men?
Me: No….tell me.
KB: Sometimes…they DON’T wash their hands after going to the BATHROOM.
Me: *feigning equal astonishment* Nooooooo….
KB: *nodding her head gleefully* Men are gross.
Me: They sure are.
Naw, not really. No new me, just the same old straight forward, and to the point me I have always been.
However, the “New Year” does bring a sense of being able to “Start over”. It brings a fresh outlook on the upcoming year. A way for people to reset themselves. So I guess it’s sort of like a “New Me”, is possible.
I do look forward to this and every year, in anticipation as to what it will hold for me and others. Just think back to last year at this time, so many things that happened were unforeseen. Both good and bad.
Are you still in the same job, house, marriage etc..? Did we loose a loved one, or gain one in the past year? Win the lottery or loose a fortune? So many unforeseen things, both big and small happened to us all.
So even though I am not going to loose that weight I gained (although Id love to), I’m not going to stop cursing or start fostering stray dogs in the community (my wife would kill me), I do look forward to how the new year will change or my life and those around me.
Sit back and enjoy the ride, that’s what I’m going to do. But I’ll probably do it with a glass of bourbon in my hand. You?
It seems I have been busy, and as a result not very active on my blog page. Well, here is an update. Beside life and work getting in the way of my free time, I have been taking a few pictures.
Senior pics, some sports, lifestyle pictures, and and engagement photo session.
Until next time, below are a few for your enjoyment.
Me: Go eat the muffin I gave you.
Me: It has chocolate chips in it.
Me: It has candy in it.
Myles: *face lights up like a disco ball* YEAH! *runs away to consume banana chocolate chip muffin*
I mean, it also has zucchini. Which is probably why he initially refused breakfast.
Once again stolen from my adult daughters Facebook page.
*putting KB to bed*
KB: Mommy, will you check my closet and bed for monsters?
Me: You know what deters monsters?
KB: *clearly distrustful* What?
Me: A clean room.
KB: You’re just saying that to get me to clean my room.
Me: Is it working?
KB: *jaunty glare* No. Now check for the monsters and go.
The eyes tell all. I recently took some pictures at a local high school football game. This pictures was one that turned out. Funny thing is I wasn’t looking for this “shot”. In post edit I saw it, did a little crop and turned it into a black and white to emphasize the eyes. Funny how once in a while a shot turns up when you were least expecting it.
KB: What’s for lunch?
KB: Yay! Samples!
