Happy New Year

Well, here we are, another year, opening windows of opportunities to create and accomplish. This last decade was filled with lots of good stuff and of course, sad stuff too. I got married again in 2001 to a wonderful guy, I graduated from college in 2005, I began my little business in 2008 and got a new computer in 2009!!!! LOL Also, I have been so blessed in meeting new and wonderful people as yourselves, my blogland buds.

I've also been able to reach out and talk to some of these wonderful people via the telephone. Last night I called my buddy, Linda, in Albuquerque, NM. I'd say she was surprised to hear from me, but when you send me your phone #, be sure I'll be calling you "once in a blue moon!!!" I also talked to my other crazy friend, Bernadette, in IN...she was staying in and celebrating with her cats having chips and dips!!!! Nutty lady!! These are just a couple of people I've met through blogging and I can't be more blessed...have a wonderful network of friends, family and a few strangers I've met along the way.

So my friends, I want to let you know how much you mean to me and how you've brought much laughter, fun and sometimes, a bit naughty posts and responses!!! Hope your New Years Eve was a fun one or restful. We spent some of it talking to my step-daughter-in-law and consoling her broken heart. Her mother is not accepting of her stepson who is a little on the active side, but the reason more being he's not her blood, so she takes her blood-related grandson and neglects to to anything with the other. Told her my own son was rejected many times when he was a child by his own flesh and blood due to his disabilities...they just don't get it, and don't want to. So it was quite a heart felt conversation. We've accepted her son as our own and my husbands grandchildren as my own...we may not have much in the way of material things, but we have lots of love...lots. My family also adores our brother's girlfriend's daughter (did you get that??). She is part of our family, but there are those who just refuse to open their hearts to others based on bloodlines...maroons!!

After that, I opened up a bottle of champagne and we celebrated, by then, my stepson came over and we chatted till it was time for them to get back to the house, they live across the street from us. I did some last skimming of the menudo and put it on low and checked on it during the night. I added the chile sauce right before I got on this thing and now I'm ready to get serving. Having a few people over today...told them to bring their own containers to take back this stew of the Aztec Gods to enjoy in their house!! LOL So take care, rest up and get ready for another wonderful year of creating, laughing, and meeting and making new friendships. Peace out.

and happy new year right back atcha!

I will never understand families who would accept one child but not another. It just doesn't make any sense to me. The thought of some little kid feeling neglected makes me want to just kick the adult in the shins. People can be soooooo MEAN.

Sounds like you're off to a great year Georginna! I think it's wonderful that you make room in your heart for the little ones, whether related to you by blood or not. No one has a say so in who or what family they're born into. They're blessed to have you in their lives!

Hi Georgina. It's really good to have you back. I bet that menudo was good. I've got to make some. Maybe next weekend. Happy New Year! I hope you continue to have health, happiness, and well being. Take care. Love to read your posts.

Georgina!
Good luck with that menudo! I just can't stop thinking about the cow stomach part! EEeewww! LOL!
I made a casserole today with chicken, breakfast potatoes, cheese, cream of chicken soup topped with Doritos and covered with more cheese! (cleaning out the frig and cupboards because it's like 10 below outside!) -It was very yummy and then I realized I blew one of my resolutions already! But hey, I did CLEAN out something!
About that woman not accepting that little kid, that kind of behavior makes me so mad, how can people be so hurtful! Glad I don't know her!
Gotta go and work on my "cat" dolls (that's one resolution I WILL keep!)
Take care friend, so glad you got the new computer up and running!

Hi Georgina! I will never understand people that put children in the middle of arguments, or use children to get back at adults - it makes me nuts. I love your open heart, and maybe you are like me, the more kids in my life, the merrier! :)) Happy New Year! xoxo Pam
