It's 2009 already? Holy crap - what happened to 2008?
After a few days at the in-laws (I had a GREAT time, thank you very much!), we just had a quiet night in with a few margaritas and chicken wings. Yes, we sure do know how to live.
My first wish for everyone is a happy, healthy and a year full of love and fulfillment. Do the things that make you happy and maybe try something you've been putting off because you were afraid to try it. See where it takes you - you never know until you try and you can only put things off for so long, then it's too late, so do it now.
So we were in the Ottawa area at my sister-in-law's home for a few days and we all went to see Marley and Me. Not a movie I had any great desire to see - I've read the book and loved it, knowing the outcome (spoiler alert Marley dies) didn't make me want to see it in a public place. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. It wasn't sappy or over the top, but just really well done. I am recommending it to all of you - although you may want to wait to see it at home so you can have a really rip-snorting, wail of a good cry at the end. After the movie, all 9 of us trudged red eyed and snotty into McDonald's for lunch - Let's just say the lighting in there is less than flattering...
So what's on tap now? I will be ripping my bakery apart for it's annual down to the bare bones cleaning, re-organization and purging of all the excess crap I don't need. Come to think of it - that's what's in store for the rest of the house too!
Here is what my basement bakery looks like:
Cheers to 2009!
