December 31, 2013 Tuesday Afternoon

Spent last night watching three more episodes of Homeland from this season.  We are half way through this years shows.  Went to bed around 9 PM and watched some TV in bed before going to sleep a little after 10 PM.

This morning I was up by 6:00 AM.  Tony climbed over to my side of the bed before he got up and that led to a round of lovin.  Got up.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Went to Pick N Save this morning to buy some taco dip and nachos for tonight since we are staying in.  I have two big T Bone steaks I got from mom for Christmas that we will make for supper.  Will spend the night watching Anderson Cooper ring in the new year.  Made a batch of chocolate crack bark that my neighbor had made and gave me instruction on how to make them.  They actually turned out good and they are so addictive hence calling it 'crack' bark.  No plans tonight which is good since it is suppose to start snowing soon and we might get up to 6 inches over night.  Plus it is only 10 degrees outside right now and not going to get any warmer outside.  Perfectly happy to stay home and watch TV with Tony and the dogs.

I saw on Facebook an idea and started it.  I made a jar and wrote on it '2014 Happy Memories'.  As the year goes by I will drop little notes or pieces of paper into it containing happy moments or times that occur during the year.  Then next New Year's you go through them all and remember all the happy moments.   I think it is a great idea and made a jar for notes this morning. 

I still am thinking about the Showtime series Time Of Death.  I tell you that series sure got me thinking and under my skin.  Actually during episode 5 I had a panic attack thinking about death and how painful and scary it all is.  I had to look up at the ceiling and breath slowly.  I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest and I could not breath.  The show is that good and that honest about death.  I told Tony I want to move to Oregon.  At least they allow assisted suicide.  I think we are more humane to our animals than we are to our dying or old people.  I do recommend finding this show and have a box of tissues handy while you watch it.

Happy New Year.  See you in 2014.

  1. Happy New Year, Dave.... I agree with you about Time of Death. It is the best portrayal of the death process I have ever seen. Those that participated in it are owed a huge debt of gratitude. Like birth, we need to embrace the death process. It really is another birth process at the other end of life---going into the unknown, much like a baby enters this world. I agree that we treat pets better than humans many times when it comes to death. Thankfully, with modern hospice and palliative care we are able to successfully manage symptoms to make sure that the final days of life are as pain free and peaceful as possible.
