The End of It All

I would suppose this is the end of one of my best years and one of my worst years, all wrapped up in one. This year has been an eight ticket ride.

My new WiFi hot spot (called a Jetpack) is actually not an improvement. I don't know if it's the towers, or sunspots, or just plain lousy service. "They" told me that we would be getting another tower up here in January - not holding my breath.

My DIL has the flu, so it looks like I will not be having my fun day with Sky this vacation. Bleep!

House hunting... it really isn't going very well. I did fall in love with one house when I saw the listing. It cost too much, but Stan took me over to look at it anyway, to get it out of my system. I could just see Julia and Edward putting up their Christmas tree for Anna in the front window. After I looked it over closer, I realized it would not be workable at my age and the bedroom had an outside door... I didn't like that or the layout of the kitchen. I went up the stairs. The turn on them was too tight, it would not be safe. We continue looking. One house would have been perfect IF the basement hadn't recently been pumped out and was still soaked. The hole in the roof didn't turn me on either. It had a lot of roof. I suppose I need to look at newer homes... We'll be going out again tomorrow, there are several more on my list with that extra bathroom. I would have preferred a vintage home though. Oh, well.

My teeth are making sores on my gums. I can't even eat noodles without pain. Could kill for a steak and a nice crunchy salad! (Or some of that lovely fruitcake, cookies, or my baklava!)

The weather keeps bouncing around. I am already anxious for spring. I am not a winter person. I know there are many who enjoy the snow, it is so pretty and it does cover-up the bleakness out there and that awful brown yard. (But I am content with the brown yard)

My last post of 2013, hard to believe it! I will not be staying up tomorrow night to see the New Year in. My late nights are over.

Wishing you and yours a prosperous and healthy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year to you and hope you find your dream house soon.

  2. i hate that your teeth are not 'settling in' - or rather your gums getting used to them. i do hope you can chew better soon! and the right house will hit. it has to. :)

  3. Thanks for the 'update' Sharon. Haven't 'house-hunted' for a while now....I can only imagine how stressful it is. There is the PERFECT waiting to be found....I hope.

    Yes, 2013's last day! I remember when I was a kid and thinking about how OLD I would be in the 2000's....and here I am!!

    Happy New Year and I wish you all best for 2014.

  4. All this makes me remember a song, called the only way is up! Here's to a much better 2014. I know it will all fall into place for you. Xxxx

  5. ...just spent a few moments going back through your posts to catch up -- you've been busy writing I see! That's good.

    So sorry about your teeth and the eating, or not eating... I do hope things improve quickly so you can get back to normal food.

    Happy New Year Sharon!

  6. I'm not a snow person either, Sharon. I am thinking spring. I love house hunting... even when I'm not in the market for a house. LOL! Lindsey and I used to go to open houses, just to go through and look. I hope you find the right one soon. Maybe spring will bring new stuff on the market and the perfect house will appear!
    Take Care and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  7. I hope that your teeth get some attention and get taken care of so you can eat Baklava and then some salad to clean off the sugar.
    I hope that the New year, brings good health and happiness.


Thank you for your visit!
