Flowers from a skid!

Aniki's picture

With the pandemic, DH and I did not have anyone over for Christmas and sent/dropped off gifts for the skids/grandskids. SS21 did not know until just before Christmas that he (and his fiancee) would not be able to come home, so I did not get their small box of gifts mailed until January 2nd. It was not as much as I usually give (finances are a bit tight right now), but did include the little tradition we do every year.  

OT - Eff Off/Forn Friday

Aniki's picture

Welcome to Friday, STalkers! This week hasn't been too bad (for me). Crazy-busy, but on a tolerable level. Combo week! 

Eff off to:

  • Cancer. It claimed another friend. Gaaaaaaaaaahhhhh... 
  • Covid. Need I say more?
  • Mother Nature. Where the heck is my snow, lady? We have a measly 7 inches on the ground. *scratch_one-s_head*
  • Cheezits. I simply cannot eat just one of those darn things. Oink!

 

Here we go with Forn Friday! Forn is 'food' and 'p0rn' combined. I want to share some recipes of things I am craving.

OT - Woman Wednesday

Yes, men are welcome, too! :)

With all of the chaos and negativity swirling around us, how about some positives to give us a boost? A funny story, a poem, some uplifting words... please share something that makes you feel a little/lot better.

 

You know you are on the right road when you lose interest in looking back.

My ability to remember song lyrics from the 80s far exceeds my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen.

If you're going to walk a mile in my shoes, could you pick up some wine on your way back?

OT - Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, STalkers. We're one day closer to the weekend. Yippee!!! Anyone else having a long-arse week? Yesterday felt like a week all by itself. Ugh.

I've been dealing with some - to me - annoying, unnecessary crap. It's damn irritating when people try to make me part of THEIR drama. That's a big ol' HELL-NO in Aniki Land and moves you out one circle of trust.

OT - Ghosting

Aniki's picture

Happy New Year, STalkers! Fingers crossed (toes and eyes, too!) that 2021 starts improving. 

I mentioned on another blog that I'm getting close to ghosting my sister. She's been pestering me to hang out with two of her friends (a couple). I wrote on the other blog...

Hey, lovely that you have friends to hang with during quarantine. Enjoy. But don't get p!ssy with me because I'm not interested in joining your group. Bitchy Aniki has zero desire to "expand my circle of friends" at this time. Keep pushing me and you'll find yourself ghosted.

Well, this has certainly been a year. A few more hours, and the sh!tshow that has been 2020 will come to an end. As much as we might wish it to be so, 12:01am will not be an automatic reset to smooth sailing into 2021. There will be months of uncertainty, irritation, negativity... 

I read something last night that struck a chord with me...

Life is better lived when you center it on what's happening inside of you - not what is happening around you. Work on yourself.

OT - Mental Health Monday

Aniki's picture

Greetings, STalkers!  I hope your Christmas holiday was low-stress, if not stress-free. It was just DH and me on Christmas. No staying up late on Christmas Eve cleaning (DH) and backing (me). No getting up early on Christmas day to set up the buffet and cook/prep the ham before showering. Sweats and tees and bed head and a lazy of movies and snacks. But - and 2015 Aniki would never have believed 2020 Aniki would say this - I missed the skids and grandskids.  Whodathunk?

Have Yourself A Boozy Little Christmas

Sung to the tune of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas"

Have yourself a boozy little Christmas
Let your head be light
Hopefully the skids will soon be out of sight
Have yourself a boozy little Christmas
Drink some Cabernet
Mentally, your troubles will be miles away
