Jobless AND homeless. What a great way to start 2009! Jim has been trying to get me to write a post since he started this blog so I thought I would start the new year out right. Unfortunately I am not quite as witty as Jim so bear with me.
We spent a quiet New Years eve watching a movie and being in bed by 11, as usual. Today we went back to Aquirre Springs and hiked the Pine Tree trail, 4.5 miles up to the base of the Organ mountains. There was even snow at the higher elevations .
We are still in Las Cruces. Lots to do in the area and Wal-Mart, Sam’s and a mall. After a few weeks in Big Bend and west Texas we needed to do a little shopping. Don’t think Jim mentioned the fact that he has lost some weight since we left Pensacola. Mostly due to the fact that the food Nazi he’s married to has been monitoring his intake of junk food. He did get a bowl of fat-free, no sugar added ice cream after our hike today. His pants are getting pretty loose in the waist and after almost 3 months of searching, we have been unable to locate the 2 belts he thought he brought. Guess they got put in the thrift store box by accident. So he bought a new belt and no longer has to worry about losing his pants.
I got another haircut yesterday and it’s even shorter. Jim shaved his beard tonight so this is the last picture you will see of it. He’s back to the goatee. I told him he was beginning to look too much like the guy in the blog picture.
Hope I haven’t bored you to death. I’m sure Jim will continue to be the main writer. Try to live your dreams in 2009. Life is too short not to enjoy it!
