2013...I'm Glad It's Over...Here's to 2014!
Dearest Friends,

I've been out of the loop, so to speak, for about a month now. I was feeling so bad that I haven't even read the SnuSa that I was so looking forward to, much less managed to finish mine. I am very unhappy with myself. This fandom is important to me, and it's frustrating that my participation has been nil. Aurgh!

To be fair to me, however, I have had the flare to deal with, then the loss of my beloved Josephine, then my youngest daughter and son gave me a brand new puppy the Saturday before Christmas. She's a little black lab/golden retriever mix that I've named Zoe. (She's a delightful little monster and I love her to son's boxer that lives with me is thrilled to have a new friend after Jojo passed, and the cats MIGHT forgive me soon! LOL!)

Then, on Christmas Day, my youngest daughter's sweet little dog, Chloe, passed away. She was fine when she went out to go potty in the morning, and Angel and her boyfriend found her dead a little while later. Looks like an unknown heart problem. They were down at his families place about four hours from here. Everyone is devastated. Sweet little Chloe was a delightful doggie, only about eight months old, and we all loved her. This had not been a good year for doggies...first her Sammie got out and got hit, then Jojo dies, then Chloe. I feel so, so bad for her.

Then, on the New Years Eve, with one day's warning, my oldest daughter and her boyfriend lost their apartment and moved in to my basement. Oh. Joy. I cannot tell you how THRILLED I am with this. I love my daughter, don't get me wrong, but I was enjoying having an "empty nest", and there are some things going on that I won't bore you all to tears with. Suffice it to say that this is a "Probationary" thing, and if things aren't the way I've been promised, well, changes WILL be made. Mommy doesn't need the stress. I feel bad she lost her job and his business is slow, but, unfortunately I know some of what led to the job loss and it was, alas, self-inflicted. Again. Still... Sigh.

So here's to 2014 being a fantastic New Year for us all. That's my belief and I'm sticking to it!

Wow. It does sound as if you've had more than your share of tough things to deal with. I'm sorry. Hopefully, as you say, 2014 will be full of good things for you! ~hugs~
