New year, new home, old dog…

It has been some year…oh yeah, quite a year! We moved…and it seemed like it took forever. We’re settled now and love the apartment but not some of the noise, although we agree that it’s still better than drunken college students prowling the streets in the early hours of the morning and cars going by with heavy basses booming. Now we just have a couple of adolescents with new hormones circulating in their bodies and no brains to temper the mess. These boys slam the doors incessantly and run all over the place, presumably in search of the errant gray matter necessary to govern their lives in a civilized manner. Of course many of the adults around here slam the doors too. Sigh…

The apartment is touted as luxury apartments and I have to say that it seems pretty luxurious in that it is modern, spacious enough and nicer than the old fashioned house we had. It’s easy and fun to take care of and it makes us feel as if we’re on perpetual vacation. It’s not unlike a nice large hotel suite. We got rid of a lot of old bedraggled stuff and bought some new furniture and our art work looks splendid on the walls. People who come seem to notice the art, that we’ve had hung for years, for the first time.

The apartment is comfortable and convenient and I no longer have to do battle with the stairs which became the bane of my existence for the past few years. I feel much more independent since I can do many things here by myself which were difficult for me before. The Rock and I have a new lease on life, you should pardon the pun… The hardest thing for us right now is living with an extremely geriatric dog and we feel a big bad decision closing in on us which we would like to postpone or, better yet, not have to deal with.

We are on the cusp of a brand new year and my chief resolution is to blog again…and regularly. Happy new year everyone! May this upcoming year hold good health, prosperity and joy for you and yours!!
