Okay, so trying to make this fun. Somehow. Who can make anything fun? SNL! I looked up Debbie Downer. I watch Saturday Night Live only occasionally, and I remember seeing a few bits with this character. In the Wikipedia article, it talked about the sketch where Betty White (as the grandmother) tells Debbie not to enjoy her birthday cake because gluten allergies run in her family.
Why is this funny to me? I’ve always thought that my Grandma McIntosh (the last of my grandmothers who’s alive) resembles Betty White and she’s the grandmother who has celiac disease. In other words, I inherited my gluten problems from her.
So, what is it I’m trying to make fun?
Our new year is off to a bang-up start. The big thing is that less than a week into the new year, hubby’s car was stolen. And no, the keys or other valuables were not left inside, nor was it left in a high crime area. On top of that, the boys glutened me again, which, as miserable as I feel, after what happened to the car, it’s the least of our worries.
What a great way to get back into my blog, huh? I guess this explains my prolonged absence too. 😉
So, the bright side.
There’s a bright side? Okay, well,
1. They didn’t take the family car.
2. It was ours – not the bank’s. We don’t have to make payments on something we don’t have since we don’t like
making bankers rich taking out loans.
3.We will be getting money toward a new one in the likely event that the stolen one is not recovered.
4. I learned a new emotion to use and correct for a reaction in my NaNoWriMo book: helpless, victimized, anger. My main character is kidnapped, and after this experience with our car, I’ve realized that her parents are not nearly angry enough about it.
Anyway. I hope your New Year is going better than ours.
Please tell me good happy things going on in your New Year! I need cheered up!
