Explanations, Thank-you's and an Ode to My Butt-Warmer

Oh Butt-warmer, how much do I love thee? Let me count the ways...While snot is flying, rain is pouring and traffic reports are blaring - you warm my ass like no other. I love you so. You made it so I sang this morning - "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire". I don't know how I can repay you for your kindness.

OK, back to sanity. I'm feeling better today and my butt is happy. I want to thank all of my blog-readers for being so kind and I want to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY HANNUKKAH 0r whatever you celebrate! You have made me smile this week.

And now for explanations. What the hell was I talking about yesterday? Well, here it is. Life is short. Life is too short to waste on a bad mood - which is what I've been in what seems like, an eternity. There are lots of things I want to do in 2006 - and yes, one of them is to get back into shape - but more importantly, I want to appreciate what I have more. I have a nice home, I have a loving family, I have a great husband who, even though has been a booger this week, is truly a great man that I love with all my heart. I have many blessings that I take for granted - and I don't want to do that anymore. Jim and I had a long talk last night about the state of the world and the state of our hearts. He wrote me a love letter for Christmas. He was going to type it up all nice and put it in my stocking - but because I have been in such a funk, he decided to give it to me last night. It was so cool it made me cry. It was full of fond memories we share. He ended it with "You are my lobster." For those of you who are "Friends" fans - you'll know what that means.

Here's to all of you - may your New Year be awesome!

Love, Crazydogmama and the fur-butts

I am glad you are feeling better. A warm ass is always nice. I too want to appreciate what I have instead of worrying about what I don't have. Life is way too short.

Take care Lobster :-P

Whew! I got all weepy. I'm such a sucker these days. There really is nothing like an ass warmer during the holiday season. Well okay, and family that loves us and dogs with wet noses.

Merry Christmas Crazydogmama. Here's to a New Year wear we both have asses that won't quit and abs that make 20 year olds green with envy!
