"the sound of gunfire, off in the distance, I'm getting used to it now"


My last post I left you having just come out of surgery to reconstruct my left 5th metatarsal, an injury that left me lame for several months and cost me my job. You know when you go back and read something you'd written in a bad mood and it feels so angsty and stupid? Well on this second read, that post still didn't. What I wrote may seem dramatic, but I feel like it's necessary to tell you all that it was not exaggerated in the least. In all honesty, 2010 was probably the worst year I've ever had. But that is all the more reason why 2011 is has to be one of the best. Not because I'm all of a sudden going to have the luck of the Irish on my side, but because things can't possibly be worse than the were this last year, The only way it can go is up.

Nothing has really changed with the new year, I don't expect to win the lottery or discover rich relatives, I just know that I need to find more time apart from all this. Spend time with the things that I love, like this blog, my friends, and the Rocky Horror show I did in October (pics coming soon). Shit may still happen to me, I'm never really expecting that to totally change, just the past year has given me, if nothing else, the confidence that whatever it is, I can handle it.

My point is, I hear the gunfire off in the distance, I'm getting used to it now.

Oh you poor lady, it sounds like 2010 was indeed a rough year for you! Mine wasn't the greatest either, although there were some lovely moments...

Breaking your feet/ankles is the worst. My sister broke her ankle last year and was out of it for agessssss...and she also got pregnant because and she still states "you can't get pregnant with a broken leg!" she's 35 so Im not sure where she has got this theory from? haha

Heres to 2011 being much more wonderful for you!!

I am in dire need celine outlet shop of a new bag, and celine bag with summer literally knocking Celine Luggage Tote on our door, I'm going to need a good tote for the pool, beach and general carrying (don't you find yourself lugging more stuff around in the summer? )#). I mentioned Deux Lux before, when Oprah put one of their bags on her Favorite Things list. Well lucky me, I ended up getting that Celine Luggage bags bag for Christmas and I love it. It's sturdy, roomy and fun. So when I stumbled on the line's Celine Boston Bag beach totes, I was excited at the prospect of having a little sparkle with me at the beach.

This type of piece is a great investment because it can Roger Vivier Sandals be used for every roger vivier sale warm-weather occasion. Whether it's as a cozy cover-up for late afternoons on the beach or dressed up with a pleated mini, it works every time.
