A New Year, A New Beginning

I'm so hoping that the new year will be that new beginning for the Bloom's. I can't say how tired I am of the last year, so I won't. We did have some really upsetting news this morning. Our best friends for more then 30 years called to wish us a Happy and my GF was told she has Cancer. I wasn't shocked because when we were up in DC in the fall she had been sick during the summer and they finally found out what the problem was this past week. She starts chemo on Thursday and my prayers are with her and her family. They are the best people and would give up their bed for me. My heart is just breaking, but Laura is only thinking good thoughts and so our we.
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve. We spent some of ours with Larry, Tina, and the kids. Larry made a great dinner and we watched the Mav's game on TV until the end. At 9 it was time to come home. Justin was having some friends in for a "safe" party. He's off to LV today to visit his Dad's family out their for 3 weeks. Then he'll know more when he's going into the Navy. Later the better I think! I had to wake Barry up at midnight to wish him a happy. I watched a bunch of old Thin Man movies and was happy as a bug in a rug!
Today is a lazy day at our house. Ok, so every day seems like it's a lazy day these days. Evan went to see the Bull Dog puppies this week. They were so cute and I should have a new Grand puppy soon. He wants a little girl dog and since the litter was 10 pups, he should be able to narrow down his choice soon.
This is going to be the year of good thoughts only. At least I'm going to try that today. I figure if you start the year out that way, maybe it will continue. One can always hope that works out. I have small wishes for the year. Barry to finish school, Barry to get a job, and Barry to have a nice clean check up next week from the doctor. I'll let you know how that all works out for me.
Have a wonderful life!


  1. Happy New Year! So sorry to hear of your friend's health news. Hopefully all will go well for her.

    I'm still getting over my cold so it was a lazy day for me at our house too. The boys all went tubing but I don't think it got above 5 degrees so I probably wouldn't have wanted to join them anyway. They had a great time.

    My husband SO wants a Bulldog. We already have two dogs though and at the pet store the English bulldogs were $2,100 - way out of our price range. Both of our dogs are rescues and as nice as it would be to pick a breed it feels so good to rescue.

    Best wishes for a year of health and happiness!

  2. AW, bulldog PUPPIES! SWEET! Congrats on the addition to the family! LOL! I think you are right, GOOD THOUGHTS will bring good things!

    Can't wait to know you better, Paula! Hugs, Nicole
