So Long, 2017!

And so another year comes to a close.


Where has the time gone?

Oh, wait.

I know.

As my oldest child would say…

Down the toilet.


Sounds about right.

Like any other year, there have been ups and downs.

But with any luck, the highs have more than balanced out the lows.

That seems to be the key to maintaining one’s sanity.

More or less.

But sanity is overrated.

So if 2017 wasn’t your personal best, fret not.

2018 is waiting right around the corner with the promise of a brighter year.

Let’s usher in the upcoming year with a bit of humorous inspiration from Mark Twain, shall we?

β€œNew Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”

Ah, yes.

Sounds like a mighty fine plan, indeed!

~Quirky Girl and The Bigly Bestest Doggie would like to take this opportunity to wish all our wonderful friends a bright, fantastic, and prosperous 2018! Let’s make it amazing!~

Oh, hi there! Hey, wait a second! It's not time for Tuesday Tails 'n' Tweets yet... is it?

  1. Late to the party but loved this post Angelica! The highs definitely out balanced the lows for my 2017. But you’re right, 2018 is the start of a whole new world of possibilities! All the best to you in 2018!

    • That’s a good point… so Happy January Eve! 😝

    • Thank you! I frequently have that very same expression of gratitude for the blessing of Jett entering our lives. He truly is an unexpected blessing, and I couldn’t be more grateful. πŸ’—

      Wishing you all the very best for 2018!!! 😊


    • You are absolutely correct; adding Jett to our family was by far the highlight of 2017! Who’d have thought he’d not only capture my heart, but also quickly become such an integral part of Comically Quirky? Wow!

      Wishing you a bright and Happy New Year, my friend! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  3. β€œDown the toilet” that’s what my daughter would say too!
