The Future's So Bright...

That's it! I'm going to forget about this:

Ice dams along the east side of our house.

And this:
More gruesomeness.

Ok, so it wasn't all misery... daughter Sorena took time out for a little ice guitar. I'll remember this!:

It was her reward for making it through this:

(It's far worse out there now--you can't even get through anymore!)

Also, I'm going to try to forget about this:

The indoor results of the ice dams. Curtain & wallpaper ruined; antique woodwork had to be removed before it warped even more. Behind it is wet, moldy plasterboard. Ugh!

And finally, I'm going to forget about this:

That's part of my Fiestaware collection cluttered about the kitchen table. It normally sits atop the cupboard and looks, more or less, like this:

(You get the idea.)

We are getting a new refrigerator next month...somewhere in the past 19 years since we've purchased one, the refrigerator gods decided a standard size should be about 2-3 inches taller. So....the cupboard that is above the fridge had to be raised! Fiesta dishes can't be put back until the decorative railing is replaced. God only knows when that will be!

But there's one part of that I'm not going to forget, and that's


In less than 48 hours, I will be sitting on a beach in Mexico, sipping a cold adult beverage!
In fact, I'll be doing pretty much just that for the next 30 days!*

I'll be wearing my new sunglasses:

I plan to look awesomely cool in them! And whenever I want to, I'll be able to work on a crossword puzzle or read a trashy novel because these sunglasses are also....voila!...reading glasses! (My first bifocals. *sigh*) future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!

*I plan to hang out at the internet cafe a time or two...I'll talk to you then!

Adios Amigos!
