The gifts are unwrapped the food has been consumed, the holiday is over. I spent time in the presence of family and the bosom of Baileys. I am exhausted. I am lucky for all of my blessings, but unable to fully embrace the coming new year. An endless cycle of ups and downs. Perhaps when i feel this way a post is not what i should be attempting, after all there is enough negative out in the world already. Leave this world a better place they say, at least your corner of it. This blog is my corner of the (web) world it’s not fancy but its mine. So i will leave you with some cute pet photos and be back another day with humor and stupidity to brighten my corner.
