Happy New Year my friends. For my next trick I plan to rise out of the ashes of what has been a really crappy couple of years and flap like a chicken or something.
Katie and I rang in 2017 by throwing away our old calendars. I took my 2016 file folder and archived it. I was tempted to give it the round file treatment but I realized that I might need my tax records even though I’m broke.
And while I lost Princess Leia, Charlotte the spider, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and a ton of others that I loved I found out tonight that the Cubs WON the World Series for the first time in 108 years!
I was born in Chicago. That’s my team right there. Doesn’t quite make up for Leia but it’s a start.
Anyway, last but not least I now have 65,776 words written on the new Shoestring Girl book so I’m very happy with that.
So here’s hoping everyone has a great year!
