looking back

2018 has been a hell of a ride. Here’s hoping 2019 is a smooth one for a change.

I don’t know if I could emotionally survive another year like this one.

I haven’t accomplished everything i had on my annual list of “crap to do”…I’m not sure I even came close.

I wanted to get George a shed……….did that with some help from the interweb and the people who read my blather. Cyranny suggested I create a “go fund me” acct, which I did, and see where that went…it went to paying for the shed! I only put up the deposit, the balanace came from readers and anonymous peeps. Thanks!

I wanted to get electrical service to the shed……..and did that as well.

I wanted a big garden………..well, that didn’t work very well. I had a thousand eggplants, four green peppers and one (yes ONE!) tiny tomato……….all the other things I planted went in something’s belly o died from neglect.

I wanted to pay off the house……….and I did. MONTHS early! Then this month I got a bill for the taxes on the house…uh oh……..I forgot I had to pay that bill. I managed to pay half though so the tax people are quite happy with me.

I put together an arts and crafts room for myself in the front room, replaced an air conditioner unit and painted yet another room.

In between all of those things I blogged…a lot. Mostly rampaging against the cheeto posts but I wrote a bunch.

I’m still having a bit of trouble adjusting to the idea that next month will be in an entirely new year…….but I am ready.

  1. Congrats! This year I high hopes for my flower garden. Planted 5k seeds and not a single one grew.

  2. Congrats! In my world you have accomplished a lot. My major victory has been reducing trump crap to a minimal prick…..prick in the side, that is. LOL Gabby’s garden fizzled along with my activity level due to hip and knee. Last year I was walking 5 miles a day, now I can barely hobble 1 1/2 miles. But, life is good.

    1. i found myself huffing and puffing after walking up a short incline at the hospital this morning..there to pick up George from his first rehab. When I walked in a bright young thing glanced up and said “are you new to rehab ma’am?”…made me snicker.

  6. It always seems looking back at the year there is a lot of crap that didn’t get done and yet in reality so much did. My list looks much like your except for the eggplant to pepper to tomato ratio( 0 peppers, 4 eggplants and boatloads of tomatoes). Here’s hoping we all have a shorter List of Crap that Didn’t Get Done at the end of next year. Cheers!
