New Year Wish

I wish I could take credit for this, but it came from my dear friend, MK....

Dear God,
All I ask for in 2011 is a big, fat bank account and a slim body…
Please don’t mix these up like you did last year.

You know you've been married for nearly twelve years when.....

It's cold and snowy here today, so I treated myself to a lazy afternoon nap. When I got up, it was cold in the house, so I bundled up in my favorite polka dotted bathrobe and nice warm slippers.

I shuffled down the hall and headed into the garage to get the chicken for dinner tonight out of the beer fridge.

My beloved, upon seeing that I was about to get a healthy dinner started for us, called out to me and said there was something else he wanted for dinner instead of the beer can chicken I had in mind.

I went to him in the den, and he took me in his arms, which I knew after 12 years of married bliss meant that he was about to ask for something I was likely to nix.

He looked at me in my icky fleece pants, big polka dot bathrobe, and nap head, and I could tell from the look on his face that I had looked a bit more put together than I did just in that moment.

Thinking I could diffuse the situation with a funny quip, I said to him, totally tongue-in-cheek, "you wanna hit this, don't you?"

To which my brilliantly funny husband replied, "with a hairbrush!"

Tweet, tweet

Seems like a whole blog has been a bit beyond my reach lately. But 140 characters? I can pull that off.  Follow me at Twitter ... sdfgarcia

Yeah, I know it's not very inventive. But I was techno before techno was cool, so I didn't know I needed some cool hip hop twitter (or blog) name.

I've been thinking about blogging, but it just hasn't happened.

Keep checking in, eventually my words will find their way out of my mind and onto the screen.

Happy New Year!
