Last Post of 2007

And last entry on this blog. I gave some thought to a new blog and abandoned the idea, as nothing creative came to me, and the last time I started a new blog (this one) things didn't turn out as planned and in fact got quite bizarro. Call me superstitious, but I don't think I'll tempt the Universe to send me any new growth experiences by trying to be clever. So I've been doing a little redecorating back on the old blog, and as of tomorrow the Bossy Little Dog and I will ride off into 2008, and God Only Knows What Adventures. Please adjust your links accordingly, all 3 of you.

I'll leave this blog here, and a trail of empty champagne bottles back to the former/future address.

I am glad to see the back of 2007. I am glad to be here to see the back of 2007. 2008 is not going to be easy either, but at least it will be a fresh adventure - new work situation, moving (somewhere as yet undetermined) etc. Today Girlchild returned her father's old Sentra, which will sit until Boy can come fetch it - I will probably take it for a drive now and then, just so it gets a little exercise, but I haven't driven a stick in years so I'll have to take it around the block a couple of times until it comes back to me. I drove a stick for decades it's not like it won't come back. Girl loves her new car. When I drove her and load of her stuff back to her house it was in the carport looking all shiny and pretty, and damn, it is a cute car. It was raining, so no pictures. My heart belongs to Baby, though - I need Baby. Baby is a hard working girl, and 2008 is going to be a hard working year.

The animals got me up at 5:15 this morning, so I do not plan to make it til midnight. I'll open the champagne around 9, and toast the end of a really, really weird year, and contemplate goals for 2008. There are many.

There are more than 3, but fewer than thousands. I'd love to have thousands and blog for a living, but I have no idea what to blog about, so that plan is not going to get off the launch pad.

I'm updating my bookmarks. I never really thought Champagne and Chocolate suited you. You strike me as the type who would really prefer a cold beer and good burger. Bossy Little Dog...that suits you. Here's to a stellar '08. You deserve it.

Catherine said...

Champagne and Chocolates was meant to be frivolous and fun, a fresh start, the year it documented was anything but. I am definitely a beer and burger or wings person, and my bossy little dog has been with me throughout all of the changes. This is an archive of one scary weird year, I will not delete it, but I am going back to me and my small dustmop of a dog, moving on.

So now you're going to get me to update my sidebar, eh? It really needs it.

Here's to a happy, healthy New Year filled with good things!

2007 has blown chunks and it's being hateful to the last. My stitch n' bitch group had planned a little Mexican potluck and some movies & knitting for tonight, but it's been snowing all afternoon so we had to cancel. I'll be following you back to the bossy little dog house---let's hope 2008 is a better year all the way around.

Happy New Year. You've earned it.

Definitely following you back to the Bossy Little Dog space. It fits you and your whole tone - you are one of my very favorite bloggers. Your smarts, your bravery, your outspokeness, your sharp wit - the dog really is the icon of how I view you and your blog. See ya there!

Hi - I find it funny that you say in this last post of 2007 that you do not what to right and you have lost your creativity to continue a blog. I think that if you look at your domain name which includes the word Champagne and Chocolates that I am sure you can find something to blog about and even make lots of money.

Good Luck!
