The year of the rat is supposed to be a good year for me and I am slightly superstitious that way. #lol. When the predictions for last year came out, I believed it too. Last year was an effed-up year for me and it was true.
In all honesty, last year changed the dynamics of my family life and my circle of friends. It has also altered my work arrangements and financial standing by a few Universe-folds.
I just have to, after all, do what I do best which is to scream into the sky: Is that all you've got?! COME AT ME, you bastard.
Apparently, this year's going to be a little different and I would like to believe so. I will remain grateful for everything that has kept me alive thus far and still enjoying whatever I am permitted to enjoy.
It's not a lot but I am grateful nonetheless.
I am a simple person that way.
This year, the family celebrated it at my sisters and, for the benefit of the younger kids, there were some fireworks. But the little ones (and the 2 poor pet dogs) were so terrified of the noise and explosions that they ended up cowering away in the safe confines of the house instead, while the adults kept trying to entice them.
So, we ended up playing with it instead. Ah well...here's the video. Pardon the song of choice but I didn't have the energy to search for good royalty-free music to go along with the video and the background noise was simply....er.....hhmmm....😖😅?
So, here we are again, a new Chinese New Year and I sincerely hope that everything will work out for you if you're reading this in time for CNY2020. #lol
Here's wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!
