2012 Already??

Happy New Year!  And, you know, a new year means time for a new blog post.  Lol, I’m laughing at myself.  I think the word for what I’m feeling is chagrin.  But…whatever.  My last post was about finally moving.  I moved into this house 5 months ago and am still not completely settled.  Things are everywhere and there’s a lot of crap still in boxes.  Because the kids started school soon after moving in, and because I’m obviously not the most organized person.  And because Marvin would not let me hire any movers but insisted on the two of us moving everything ourselves.  Took us MONTHS to clean out the San Francisco house.  Literally.  We finally got it cleaned out and rented just last month. It didn’t take long to find renters, I think because the rent is on the low side, but more importantly, we found a nice couple to rent. Pretty much exactly what we were looking for.  No kids, no pets, no parties, etc.  Hopefully they just won’t let the backyard turn into a jungle, which it does in a very short time.

So anyway, I’m sitting here blog hopping and thought to myself – hey, when was the last time I wrote a blog post?  I’ve made a decision.  2012 is going to be my year!  Haha.  But really, I’m going to be more productive.  Really.  Really.  Maybe that will be my word for the year.  Productive.  I was going through my photos from 2011….sadly lacking.  This year I’ve got to take more photos.  Even just everyday photos.  I didn’t even take pics at Dillon’s birthday party, though in my defense, it was at this house that we had just barely moved in to, there were  a million people (okay, 60, but it might as well have been a million), kids running around everywhere (freaking rubbing their greasy hands on the walls!!), I was trying to spend at least a few minutes talking to each person (I hope I didn’t miss anyone), playing bartender, etc.  Luckily, Pristina was here so I handed her my camera and told her to just take some pics.  She didn’t get the shots that I wanted, but at least there are some.

Okay well, I’ve got to go and get ready for a birthday party.  The party is at 9:30.  In the morning.  On a Saturday.  Lol.  I’m like – who the hell throws a birthday party at 9:30 in the morning on a Saturday???  Common around here apparently.  It’s one of the neighbor kids, he’s turning 3.  Next week I’m going to a kids’ birthday party in the city.  Starts at 5:00 pm.  Hahaha.
