won't be sorry to see it go

2008 that is. jacques is resting peacefully in my frozen backyard. sigh. that was hard. very hard. he was ready to go though and it was instant. i mean that literally. my sister is at peace with her decision but misses him terribly already. i am already not looking forward to 2009- i have a feeling it's going to be a tougher year overall for everyone.

but we will all get through it. we really don't have a choice. we will all suck it up and get through it. if i can dig a hole in zero degree weather in december- we can all pull together and get through the tough times. and perhaps we can even laugh and smile sometimes :)

here's to hoping that each of us can enjoy the holiday of our choice- whether it's one day or 12 or whatever. enjoy being with people who love us and friends- human and/or furry. cheers!

It is hard to say goodbye to pets. Sorry your family is going through this. I know we all wonder just how much more damage the Bush regime created and how low it will go in 2009. But cheer up, how much more depressing it would be if McCain & Palin were swearing in in 1*20*09. Ugh!

Obama will undo most of the Bush signing statements, and shut down Gitmo, maybe even get us out of the Iraq war. There are rays of hope, even though the economy will likely continue to tank.

You and me both, Bet! Won't be sad to see it go for a second. Remember to smile and hold the the ones you love and the good memories close. Cheers to you and yours.

Digging your hole was a good thing.

What about Bush digging a massive sink-hole for the past eight years? What a special man is Bush! Special in all ways...
