Remember how I made all those great promises I apparently didn't intend to keep about posting and commenting and all that? 'Hem, yes, well, it appears that I really oughtn't do that, since I seem to be so incapable of seeing it through. It appears I wasn't thinking about the fact that I was going to have four teeth cut out of my head on the 29th, which did happen, and from which I am still recovering. (Seriously. Wisdom teeth. JUST WHY?!?!?!) I can hardly describe to you all the sheer thrill of both you and your mom having to get up at unholy hours of the wee sma's so you can take medicine. ("So, you're waking me up to give me medicine to help me sleep." Thank you, Wilby, for having a quote for everything.)
But I'm getting there…slowly…with the help of Disney, solitaire, Youtube, and various other film delicacies, like Legally Blonde, Bringing Up Baby, We Bought a Zoo and Hidalgo. I also persuaded my parents to rent the 2015 Cinderella so I could watch it again, so apparently there are advantages to this kind of barbarism that orthodontia requires.
Sob story of my trials aside, I don't know how many of the reviews I suggested I might write will actually happen. And I know you are all lovely, patient, kindly faithful followers, so you'll doubtless tell me not to worry about it, but I do apologize for my habit of making quasi-promises about reviews--or, for that matter, posts in general--and not keeping them. Seriously, it means a lot that through my nonsensical madness you guys still put up with me and interact with me :')
So Happy New Year, my dear beloved bloggie buddies! Here's to 2016--may we all grow closer to our Lord and Savior and to each other.
I'm really getting excited for Heidi's Cinderella Week! I've got a couple posts done, and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone will turn out :D
GUYS. I got an Andy Griffith CD I wanted in my stocking! An Andy Griffith CD of him singing hymns, for crying out loud! YES I DID AND IT IS FABULOUS. I listened to it this morning and it makes me oodles-of-happy.
The Lord is amazing, you guys know that? Well, see that you don't forget it, even when it's tempting.
So that's more or less…that…oh, wait! I remember another thing I wanted to tell you: the Bookshelf Project is now officially over. I know, I KNOW, I had just one more shelf and I probably should have stuck it out, but with the exception of a Jeeves and Wooster "omnibus" and Lorna Doone (both of which I'll probably read eventually anyway), none of the five books on the shelf were classics, so I don't really feel too bad not completing it. Start the new year with a clean slate, what. I'm now inching my way through Anna Karenina…not sure how long this attempt will last ;)
I LOVE YOU GUYS. Apologies about the short, rambling nature of this little explanatory post…I'm on three medications, so thusly my body has been enduring a veritable flooding of unusual drugs, and if I'm not dreadfully lucid, I'll blame it on that. Go watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame, y vaya con Dios!
