Happy 2009

I can't believe it's 2009. Where did the year go?

We intended to welcome the new year in at the beach with a quiet dinner, a bottle of wine and Dick Clark. Well you know how that goes ... the best laid plans, yada, yada, yada.

I got in at 4 pm yesterday, the winds were blowing at 40 mph and the elevator was kaput. We're on the fourth floor. So I shlepped my laptop up the stairs while trying not to get blown away. The first thing I did was turn the heat up. When the thermostat didn't move after one hour I called hubby. He tells me to be patient, it takes a long time to heat up the condo.

Well to make a long story short, he arrived at 7 pm. I was on the sofa, in my coat and gloves, and the thermostat still read 59. Then I'm not looking so crazy. After making a few calls we spent New Year's Eve with the elevator repair man and the guy fixing the heater. Not exactly romantic but after polishing off the wine who cared, besides we had heat again.

So I'm settling in for some R & R - riting and more riting.

Oh and btw a lucky winner in Plano Texas is getting a copy of "A Cup of Comfort for Divorced Women."

Happy New Year one and all!!
