Done (almost) with 2012

I am so glad that 2012 is almost over.  It has sucked in so many ways, and I'm truly hoping that 2013 is going to be better.  I mean, honestly, I'm not sure how it can be worse than 2012.  Right?

I'm still decluttering, and it's going ok.  I mean, no one's buying a lot of stuff on eBay right now, but that should start picking up here shortly- I made a trip to the outlet this morning with Luke, so now I've got some new stuff to post and try to sell.

And of course we were snowed in the day after Christmas.  We got 11 inches of snow in about 6 hours, and everyone was shut down- except the malls and stores.  And even some of those were closed.  This is our view from our front porch, inside of course.  :)  Insane, isn't it?  They're calling it Snowpocalypse 2012.  Or Euclid, according to The Weather Channel!

I think things might finally be settling down with my inlaws.  Charlie spent the entire Christmas day with them, and I was at home.  Which was wonderful.  Apparently, his mom said something about how I was missed, and my sil made a comment that she wished I was there so we could talk urban homesteading.  And yes, that would have been cool, but I am not up to dealing with that right now.  After the whole thing blew up, she wrote an apology that she hopes we can start over.  And I'm all for that, but Jebus Christmas, respond to an email that my husband sends you about possible plans to hang out together!  I am not planning on going up there until *next* Thanksgiving- definitely not Easter.  And I'm not even sure about Luke's birthday party.  I've told Charlie that I won't be there, so don't expect me to help you.  I really don't want to see them at all any time soon.  I *wish* I had great inlaws, but such is life.  I am sometimes jealous that other people have wonderful inlaws that treat them like part of the family.  I get people who act like their sons hung the moon, and I'm expected to bow and scrape.  Oh well.  I will get through.  :)
