70's stashes and a happy new year...

we get pretty wild here at the ol' hacienda. this meant that the mister and i had home made pizza(i made, he ate) and watched this kinda "meh" yet entertaining show called "swingtown" that we got on netflix. i also imbibed in some two buck chuck(that's a cheap brand of wine from trader joe's just in case you are reading this mom) and the last vicodin left over from my root canal 10 months ago. in my defense, i was having some serious achy muscle issues since i just rekindled my love affair with the gym and man, c'mon it was new years eve. back to "swingtown," the first best part is the clothes. i love me some 7o's high fashion. the second best part is the soundtrack( although a bit over utilized, we really don't need a song for almost every scene, i get it, it's the 70's). then there was this song that took me back to being a kid and visiting my dad and stepmom in Cardiff by the sea. my dad had long hair and surfed almost daily and my stepmom was a hostess at a fancy pizza joint. we would walk down to the beach crossing the train tracks and i can still feel that sea grass beach bag scratching my legs something awful. so listen and groove and check out that sweet stash...

oh and back to the new years...the mister was signed up for a poker tourney so we stopped watching before midnight and i started working on a new boat, this one with a wire frame and before ya know it, i was getting a midnight kiss. and then i fell asleep...
i don't make resolutions though i think about what i would resolve if i did make them, but mostly i just decide to do stuff. maybe i'll make a list...i'll ponder that.
after a bit of thought, i changed the post name (from something else that utilized an oft used sometimes derogatory term that is used to define female dogs and made me seem cool and kinda urban) to make it more friendly...a new year's "thought" is to mind my potty mouth.

thanks for all your suggestions about mason. unfortunately we've been through most. they won't test him to see if he is gifted until he is in first or second grade. the school is actually one of the better schools in our area. it just seems we may have gotten a so-so teacher. the dr suggested a montessori school, and i wish it was an option, but unfortunately it just way too far out of our price range. i've done my best with his diet since day one (even if i don't do so hot on my own.) he gets minimal amounts of refined sugar & sugar drinks. he's a fairly picky eater so it makes it even more tough. the dr & i discussed a gluten free diet, but all the research we found stated it wouldn't make much difference in his particular case. because of mason, and the dog i stick to a fairly non-toxic use of cleaning agents. nothing is coated or scotch gaurded or any of that mess. i talked to your mom a little about it before, but missed her during her trip this year.. we are definetly not giving up on the homeopathic stuff, but it's still a little frightful when you don't know what that will do either... we'll just keep on keeping on.

ps. have the dvr set to record velvet goldmine on the 13th. can't wait :) thanks for the suggestion!
