I can't believe December is almost gone.  I wish winter would hurry up and be done.  LOL.  We just got about 10" of snow last night.  I lived most of my life in New England but I hate winter/snow.

Bah! Humbug!

 

My son and I are both sick. Upper respiratory virus.  I think mine has turned into bronchitis at this point.  I don't usually get this kind of bug until January or February.  

 

Hope everyone else is well.  Wishing you all a wonderful 2013!

Maia- glad you found something useful. Hopefully you can get something taken care of so he'll be okay. A poa would definitely be helpful and shouldn't be hard to do. Good luck

Amlikam - that's cool! My boy's bday is June 19th

DoK - colds are awful. We've started getting sick here too. Hope y'all get to feeling better soon

Not much new here. I've been reworking the budget and making lists of things to get done. I'm hoping with the holidays passed we can get started working on the property again.

I wish we would get a winter. We had the ever-so-slight dusting of snow last night and that is the first in two years. I can't fully appreciate the warmer months when we haven't gotten something to compare them to!

 

Upper resp-- EW. I always get that, no matter what it starts out as. I have been sick like 4x this past year. Guess it made up for the last couple years when I wasn't sick at all-- I hope for lots less in 2013.

Budget-- good plan. Mine is a MESS. I have totally let it go. I hate money and I hate working with it. I would much rather someone else do it and say "Here, you have X dollars to spend on Y". I wish. Sigh.

 

I figured out what I need is a healthcare proxy. I think that was what it's called! But the weller M gets, the more he doesn't want to, I think. But I am going to approach it like, hey look, we need to do this for one another. If we're going to be married, that is what spouses do. I think he's afraid I will have him committed or something.

Word for the year-- I forgot what last year's was lol.gif One time, Clay said she was going to make a fabric something-or-other with her word on it, and frame it for the wall as a reminder. I want to do that-- maybe I will make a collage of each letter or something.
My word for last year-- or maybe it was the year before that, or the year before that, lol-- was Understanding.
This year I am thinking heavily on it. I was going to choose "boundaries", but I want something absolutely positive. Boundaries I could use, and I want to better draw my line in the sand, but I am all too often pissed off or depressed, and while I often have blurry boundaries, I don't want a word that sounds like it could keep me angry-- no matter how good it is for me in the long run.
So, I am thinking about choosing "Blessings". I almost always smile when I think of blessings-- so maybe. Or "movement"-- on the house, with my body-- but I like blessings and maybe shall keep that.

 

 

Honestly, I just love how much you love M and stand by him.  Life is too short to be so far away from someone you love so much.  heartbeat.gif   I think you're totally right on at least  being both one another's healthcare proxy.  It sounds like whatever you have to do to make sure you are the first person they contact when he has healthcare issues or anything else that comes up!  
Glad to hear you are home safe and sound!  
I have changed my word to "release" - which I think covers being bold but also releasing my breath, my guilt, my expectations... etc.

Cool on all accounts!  How fun to think of living near one another again!  I miss all my good girlfriends, most of them are scattered around now.  I would love someone to just go get some wine with that isn't related to me!   Purple sounds soooo tasty!!

We are engulfed in snow but I love it,  for now.  I hope you and DS feel better soon, mama!!

Hey!  My wedding anniversary is June 19!  

 

Amlikam- Gemini!  Awesome!  

 

I cannot believe tomorrow is the last day of 2012.  We are ringing it in with our good friends - they have had a sh*t year and we're hoping to help lift their energy for the start of 2013.  Veggie subs and the girls their jammies -- nothing wild but should be totally enjoyable.  Anyone have any wild plans?  hee hee.  Many positive vibes to everyone as we enter the new year!! blowkiss.gif

I got DH Almond Champagne (his favourite) and a bottle named "Tree Hugger Champagne" for me! We going to get tipsy and have a lovely little new years together. Probably watch a movie. We hate driving on new years so we always stay home and now with a wee one we have more of a reason to.

Vydalea, thank you. Really. Because it's so disheartening-- all I get from other people is why am I with him. My own mother said "And you're with him why?"...another person said "You might want to think long and hard about what you're doing, think of your child"... another said "Did you fall in love with him for the challenge?"

 

I mean, are people really that shallow anymore? It really hurts. Plus, I find it shocking.

 

And it makes me second-guess myself, like, I know I have made dismal choices in men all my whole life, and the one good choice I made, I let go of in my horrendous disease (my active alcoholism), but I mean....really. I made a vow. I love him. He is not abusive or mean. For those, I would break my vow. But for illness? Even extreme illness? For poverty? Really, I should just kick him to the curb? WTF is wrong with people?

 

At any rate, it really means a lot to me to have your support. I think you're the only one.

Well, you're a big girl and you know what is right for you and your son.  You seem to have it in perspective, to me.  hug.gif

Okay, definitely the word release.  It's working for me already.  Thanks for the reminder about doing a tarot reading today!  You always have the coolest links and ideas, revolting!  I hope 2013 brings you so much peace.

 

I just got home a bit ago from running the local 5k Resolution Run!  wahooo!!! joy.gif AND cold.gif  as it's a balmy 34 degrees here.  So, now I'm off to shower and get on with drinking some homemade red wine and lime seltzer.  owow.  (not together, i don't think, anyway)

 

Rainbow.gif for 2013, y'all!!

Cool site-- I will have to peruse it more tomorrow!

 

My word for the year: Blessings. Though, my favorite local author, Sarah Addison Allen (if you haven't read her books, check them out; they are so magickal!) says we can have three! So-- Blessings, Boundaries, Movement.

One can hope. Maybe I don't. But, being a big girl, my mistakes are mine to make, right?

 

Anyway-- Back in the day, I surely would have mixed red wine with lime-- over ice, of course winky.gif I was all about creating weird drinks. You know how a white Russian is Kahlua, vodka, and cream? I would take any flavored liquor and replace the Kahlua with it. Like, raspberry, whatever. DO NOT use Blue Curacao, though-- found out the hard way it makes you poo green redface.gif and all dang day, too, the next day. Ugh.

 

Tomorrow: Pork loin in the crock pot, with sauteed cabbage and bacon and apples. Oh, and black eyed peas, of course. Yummy prosperity manifestation!
