Happy New Year!

Throughout all of 2011..

May you always make the right moves.

May your cup runneth over with love.

May you always find shelter from any storm.

May you remain good looking and looking good!

May you find the perfect diet for your soul.

May you find perfect balance in the company you keep.

May you have as much fun as you can before someone makes you stop.

May the worst thing that happens to you come in slobbery pink and furry tan.

May you manage to make time for siesta.

May all the new folks you meet be interesting and kind.

May your accessories always harmonize with your natural beauty!

Should your mouth be bigger than your stomach, may you have a chewing good time!

May you always know when to walk away and know when to run.

And may your friends always bring you joy!

At 1530 the main level of the house except for the area rug, meets my standards. Bring on the white glove test. However, the living room area rug does not meet standards as I ran out of rug cleaner. At 1525, I drank a Martini outside while the kitchen floor dried. I shall now take a shower before the El Paso County Health Department declares me a health risk!

I was sworn into office prior to last month's meeting on May 27th.  Now... every politico regardless of office hopes to have a dignified swearing in ceremony.  After all, I was swearing to defend the Colorado and US Constitutions!  Dignified... nope not for me! 

On May 24th I was admitted to the hospital with facial cellulitis as a result of a staph infection that I picked up somewhere.  So... one of our directors came to my hospital room to swear me in lying in those beautiful hospital gowns and with a blown up face that could stop an 8-day clock! Thanks be to God, there are NO pictures. However, I did "attend" my first meeting via telephone conference so all was not lost.

Here's my first "official" photog... a ground breaking ceremony for a new waste treatment facility.  Ah... I've hit the big time!

Last night I won my first political race and was the top vote getter! I am a director-elect for the Colorado Centre Metropolitan District.  I will be sworn into my 4 year term on May 27, 2010.  Thank you so much to the voters for Colorado Centre.  I will be working hard for you and our district!

Need Alka Seltzer?!

Some things NEVER cease to amaze me. But after all this time, you would THINK I would know better.  Today is the first anniversary of the Obama Administration and people want to know WHY all the problems of the world and the country haven't been solved?! Nevermind that some of these problems go back 40+ years, nevermind that we endured 8 years of Bush, Cheney and Company... EVERYTHING should be solved in a heart beat!  We've become such an instant gratification society.  If God was the President of the United States, people would complain that he isn't moving fast enough!  Folks need to wake up and smell the coffee!!

Happy New Year!!

A New Year's Prayer

Dear Lord, please give me
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come.
