Happy New Year!

It's impossible that another year is over.  It seems like only yesterday that Mitchell and I were planning our annual New Year's Party for Two, and now it's time again. 
Very different planning this year, since Mitchell has the flu - yep! that one.  Fortunately, he is only miserable and not at death's door.  We both had flu and pneumonia shots, so even tho he apparently has the rogue strain, he's doing ok.

Did you  know that Tamiflu costs nearly $13 per dose!  OMG!  imagine a family of five getting this stuff. 

Anyway, it appears that our feast tonight will be chicken noodle soup for him, and leftovers for me.  i think we can survive!  Don't much plan on seeing midnight, either.

Thank you for hopping over here occasionally to read, and especially those of you who comment.  Thanks for your support when there were issues and for your encouragement when there were challenges.   It enriches my life to know that i have blog-friends out there.

My 2015 wishes for you are:

Peace - at home, in our communities and in the world.  Maybe in 2015 we can learn to live together and respect each others' differences instead of being afraid of them. 

Prosperity - whatever you are doing, i hope it goes well and keeps you comfortable. 

Health - enough with the surgeries, flu, and other bugs that are going around.  Let's all stay healthy this year. 

Laughter -  a smile goes a long way toward curing whatever ails you!

And, the love of friends and family. 


  1. Oh hell, Happy New Years, well kinda, eh webb?

    Thank God I couldn't come and visit that;s all you'd need, a guest.

    Thank you for always being there even when you're the only one hosting a party for FITH.

    I'd love to come and visit in the spring if the invitation is still open.

    We can gallivant around in the warmth.

    Stay away from Mitchell!!

  2. Having flu is no way to start the New Year! My best to both of you and may you be spared. Here we are without refrigeration, but there is snow on the ground so we will survive.

    I hope this year brings you good health and fun in retirement. The day will be upon you before you know it.

  3. Happy New Year to you and Mitchell. I hope he gets better soon. I chuckled over the New Year's party for two. Missed midnight by about two hours as well.

    All the best in 2015!

  4. $13 that is crazy! No wonder I've never purchased it. Too bad Mitchell was sick. Hopefully he will be feeling better soon. If it is any consolation I was up yesterday with insomnia at 4:30 a.m. and sleeping by 10:30. My husband made me a wonderful dinner, but I just couldn't keep my eyes open. Thanks for all the 2015 wishes - they are good ones and good luck this year. There are changes a-comin'.
