My New Year

OK, I have a strict rule about not blogging after imbibing, but we'll see how it turns out. I only have one reader and she only shows up every few days so I can always delete this if it stinks too bad.

Now that Christmas is over, we are really and truly broke. B. R. O. K. E. Our gas tank is at 40% so it is 60 degrees in my house right now. I have $11 in my bank account. And I am so sick of ham and beans. But thank goodness our neighbor gave us a ham for Christmas!

Tomorrow is my niece's 12th birthday and I had the foresight to buy her present back in the early days of December when I had money. My sister-in-law will feed us lunch, so there is another meal where I won't have to eat ham and beans (hopefully).

It is a New Year so of course I have made the same old resolution to lose weight. Since I have no money that might actually be possible this year!

Oy...this is depressing. You know what? I am going to stop wallowing in this no money nonsense and concentrate on the positive. I am leaving a much smaller carbon footprint! I am going to lose weight! I am going to cut back on my alcohol consumption!

Oh, Christy- you sound like me! Broke, fat and depressed!
Makes me just wanna chug a Box 'O Wine- if I could afford it!
And run away- if only I could- run with these extra 30 pounds- (Okay- 40 lbs!!!!!)
And we all know what the ham and beans are doing about now...
Happy New year anyway! Things can only get better!
(And don't you dare delete ANYTHING!)
