The Zadge had a rockin’ New Year’s Eve, cuddled up on the couch in front of a fire with a cold drink and two hot dudes: On the upside, she woke up to 2013 hangover free and spent the first day of the new year organizing all her stuff, which made her OCD-self very satisfied. Then she used the gift card Moomskers gave her for Christmas to get a super-duper facial and massage at a beautiful spa in Denver.
When she got home, she sat down to do a post about her Year in Review and suddenly remembered that the beginning of 2012 was pretty shitty for Ole Zadge.
Awful things were happening at the Top Secret Day Job.
Harry almost died of kidney failure thanks to his insatiable habit of eating anything he can get his paws on, including apparently-toxic homeopathic cold medicine.
The Zadge’s bank account almost died from the cost of that vet hospital bill.
Her father died while she was on a wine-tasting vacation.
Hey, first half of 2012 – SUCK IT!
But, but, then things turned around for our Intrepid Spinster. She switched to a new section at the Top Secret Day Job and her happiness level jumped through the roof.
She lost 15 pounds and her gelatinous muffin top, either through the Magic Beans or her new happiness at work.
And this was her favorite video of the year. Well, maybe of the decade:
She gave Old Vicky a face lift, what with a new paint job, a new fence and a new retaining wall: Oh, and don’t forget the new $7,000 shitter line she unexpectedly had to install, if she wanted to continue being able to pee and poop at her home.
She met two of her favorite blogging sistas in real life, with a visit from Cooper and the Cupcakes:
and lots of drinks with Penne from Little Girl Big Glasses:
Zadge had a boob scare, but all your phenomenal prayers and good wishes made everything turn out okay. So she blames you for still having the small B cups.
So all in all, 2012 was a pretty damn good year. And the Zadge just put a deposit down on a cycling trip through Provence in May, so she thinks 2013 will be even better. Maybe she’ll even be able to play “Wild Horses” on her guitar by next New Year’s!!!
