The number of blog entries dropped in half from 2008 to 2009 and in half again from 2009 to 2010. Either I am running out of things to write, or I am not writing about all of the exciting things in my life. Hmmm, history will show that it doesn't have to be exciting for me to blog about it so I need to make more time to write.
Of course no one knows what 2011 will bring. Good and bad, happy and sad, and just life experiences. But "life" is built around "if" so anything can happen. I'm looking forward to it!

By the way, the condition of the family room in the background will be corrected today...

Christmas was pretty low key this year. Just us opening presents REALLY slowly... Mocha jumped in and helped pull the wrapping paper off for us. Funny how she knows not to touch stuff when she is out and about all day but tears into it when she gets the green light. Ham for lunch. Never got out of my jammies. Got some good stuff - slippers, cologne, movie ("Inception" - good movie), shirt, and a bunch of books that I have bought throughout the year and haven't read yet. We popped in the burning fireplace DVD which provided a nice backdrop.
This week is pretty quiet. Nothing planned. And there is nothing wrong with that.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched and saw you pass away.
Although we love you dearly we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working paws at rest...
God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.
I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And shared her silent thoughts with me.
She’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favorite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with a bark.

Until yesterday. Ashleigh's wouldn't power on past the start up screen. Dang! So we took it to BJs and they said they cannot accept returns on items bought from BJs.com. How dumb is that? Lo and behold, Staples had it on sale for two days only. First Staples was out of stock, but the second one had 7. So we went over there. Not only was it on sale, but there was an additional 15% off today! Woo-hoo! And with the money we saved on that, we bought the 2 year extended warranty for half off. At the rate this story is going, we will need it!
