Our Final Blog
It’s that time of the year when we complete the one year and move onto the new one with high hopes and anticipation knowing that this may be the year when we are finally able to do the things we love and not settle for less than we deserve.
We are still in Yuma, but we changed resorts on Christmas Eve and will be here through the New Year. It’s that game we play with our memberships, only two weeks at a time, then having to be out for seven. It saves us tons of cash, so we have learned to play the game well between two different memberships.
Jerry wants to thank you all for the birthday wishes, he now knows what it feels like to be in his 60’s as I do, and we will both be collecting retirement in 2019, finally having a safety net, that will be awesome.
We have had Amazon Prime for many years but have not taken advantage of all it offers. We use it mainly for the two-day free shipping, but also occasionally get free books and music, but besides those options we don’t use it. We decided that would change this year since our renewal was due last week. We researched all it has to offer and decided if we were going to renew it, we would use it more. Once we figured out how to pipe it through our TV which wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be, it has been a week of movie binging. Mostly comedies and action films, we don’t do gory and for love stories, well once we start to cry at this time of the year there would be no stopping the geysers. It’s been hard enough with some of the comedies having meaning or life lessons that make us tear up, we don’t want to take the chance of opening that Pandora’s box.
We are absolutely bored and finding work has been really challenging, not only for now but also for the summer. We think we have it all figured out and then the rug gets pulled out, right from underneath our feet. So typical for this time of the year, but we will stand tall and push through to the other, much better side. We are just so grateful that we have one another to pull each other out of sinking into that deep dark hole of despair that we usually fall into at this time of the year. The good news is there are only a few days left, then 2018 holidays will be over, and we will ring in the fabulous New Year. Our plan is to celebrate from our east coast TV station feed, since making it to midnight on the west coast where we are is doubtful for us. As usual it will be Jerry, myself and a bottle of champagne, already chilling…just the way we like it.
2018 was a decent year, no drama and not too much crap being thrown at us. It didn’t always go according to our plans, but we made the best out of what was given to us. We met some wonderful people, kept in touch with many old friends and had some incredible adventures. Our journeys took us to new and exciting places and we even revisited some of our favorite places. As for 2019, we have hope, lots of hope that our dreams will materialize, and we will relax and enjoy the ride.
We wish you all a spectacular New Year…we hope you all have great experiences throughout the year, that all your prayers are answered, your wishes granted, and your hopes and dreams become your everyday reality. Happy New Year!
