Happy New Year and all that jazz....

Good-bye 2013!  It's been a typical year for the Hissyknit family.

1.  I broke my left ankle in four (yes, four) places in July right after my last post.  I'd like to say I broke it while saving a child from a burning building or even climbing a mountain.  But no, I broke it walking.  Walking!  It's the most innocuous activity on the planet and yet I manage to turn it into a dangerous extreme sport. 

2. The kids are still driving me up the freakin' wall.  Wesley is now a 12 year old and is sporting a moustache.  Regan now applies make-up regularly.  She now wears a size 7 in women's shoes.  I wear a 6.  She has borrowed my heels, pumps, sneakers and everything else.  If I had any attachment to heels, I'd be angry since she broke every heel I own but alas, heels are my holy water and garlic.

I will not survive the next 8 years unscathed or without a prison record.

3. The two dogs are also freakin' crazy.  Darby the Aussie has managed to learn how to unlock her kennel and let herself out the back door to the yard.  We had to install a deadbolt to prevent her from inviting other neighborhood animals into the house to party.

Darby has also become a bully. She's just plain mean to everyone.  I toyed with the idea of Darby being a therapy dog but then reality hit in the form of Darby failing her CGC test.

Judging by his apparent lack of concern, Zack the Mutant Collie has got be smoking pot these days.  If he gets anymore laid back, we'll need to cattle prod him of the couch.

So in conclusion, I hope everyone has a injury free year!
