Happy Freakin' New Year






Happy New year to one & all! I hope your holidays were full of fun & feasting!




I know I'm a little late but things have been a bit, well, chaotic, to say the least.




The holidays went pretty well. Better than I expected, I suppose. Let's just say the madness was spread around rather evenly between families.




In the last episode, I mentioned that we ate herring on Christmas eve. In Polish, we call it "sledzie" & we eat it as a blessing & remembrance of the holiday. (or something like that)






New year's eve we spent with my sisters at the youngest's house with a few friends. We got on Skype & got my uncle & cousins on web cam for a while. It was pretty much seeing who was the drunker group. LOL. We are on astern time & they were on Central. I don't think they stayed up to usher in their own new year, but they were on with us for ours! The rest of the night was pretty quiet & we were home by about 1:30 am. New year's day hubby, dd & myself stayed home & just chilled, veg'd, & pretty much were lazy bums. I stopped over to babcia's to visit as usual, even though we did call her at midnight.




But the day before the new year's eve begins what can only be called an evil curse...






Battling with Babushkas,

What is this evil curse? I hope it has lifted by now. A Detroit-area blogger meet-up is in the works for February. Won't you join us?

I love the eyeball, though.

I always get so excited when I see that you posted...

"Yipppeee...let's go see what Collette has to say!"

I know what the "evil eye curse" is. I had a grandmother who would put it on you if (GOD FORBID) you forgot to send her a birthday card. I nicknamed her "The Wicked Witch of the West." And trust me....she WAS.

Hey, that's so cool about being able to talk to and see you family, using Skype. A really good friend of mine uses it to talk to her sister in South America and says it's the Cat's Meow.

Nice to hear your holidays with the family went well.

Happy 2010, my dear friend!

XO

@MomZombie-I was thinking it may have been lifted, but after yesterday, I see it has not. Let me know about the meet-up!
@Jientje-Ah yes, one of the best weapons you will find! LOL
@Reffie-Cuter than the average evil eye! Stay tuned!
@Ron-Don't know who put the curse on, but need to get it lifted. Maybe evil poke-in-the-eye? lol
@Jayde-Thank you. Hope to be here a little more. I have a lot to vent about! lol
