You Heard It Here: A Rough Start

Happy 2016!

2016. Who saw that coming? I remember in the 80s thinking how cool it would be living in the 2000s and now it’s already 2016. This is craziness.

Now, keeping in mind that I have nothing against 2016, it kind of started off a little rough for me. You may have realized that I never posted a Hollywood story on January 1st and I also missed a blog at Not Your Usual Suspects where I usually have a post every few months or so. Nope, I missed it all because my computer had a heart attack. (I know, it didn’t really have a heart attack, but it did require ICU.) Thankfully, I got it back just in time for this blog.

The other rough spot of my year so far was coming down with a stomach bug that put me down for a few days. Ugh. Nothing much worse than dealing with severe stomach cramps…unless, say, you give yourself third degree burns on the roof of your mouth eating hot chilies. Yes, it happened. Please, don’t ask. Let’s just say I’ll never make THAT mistake again.

On the bright side, it’s January 10th and my computer is fixed and my health is good. Yay.

Because life is pretty ho-hum, I thought I’d post a picture of my new front door. I’m thinking of it as the new gateway for awesome things to happen in life. What the hell, right?


Not bad, yes? Apparently the only thing holding the old door together was the paint. It’s a little hard to see, but this craftsman style is my favorite. It’s changed the whole feel of the house.

I’m looking forward to the rest of this year with hopeful anticipation. That’s due in part to the fact that I made no New Year’s resolutions that I might break in the first two weeks of making them. LOL. I know myself too well.

What about you? Any new year’s resolutions that you’ve kept and/or broken so far?

  1. I love the door. LOVE it. I am still sick – sinuses – ugh. I am a terrible sick person almost to the point of being terrible male sick. I miss that by a millimeter. Let’s just say that I can barely stand myself sick and leave it at that. Other than that, 2016 has been remarkably like 2015 so far. There’s already been fantastic, my mom’s 80th birthday, and some sad, the passing of David Bowie.

    Glad that you are feeling better. Again, LOVE the door.

    • Hi Maria,
      Thank you! The front (from the outside) is even prettier. (I should’ve taken a pic of that.) Sorry you’ve been sick! That sucks! Sending you healthy vibes! Happy b-day to your mom! 80 is an awesome milestone! Yay! Thanks for popping in!

  2. I love your new door. I’m sorry about the computer and health problems. 🙁 2015 wasn’t the best year for me family wise. Looking forward to a better 2016.

    • Hi Kate,
      Thank you! I love it too! Hoping for a better 2016 for you and the family. I know it was a tough year. Sending good thoughts your way.
