2013 In Review

Just when you think you did nothing all year, you sit down with pen and paper and see everything written in black and white that you did do.

That's how my morning started.  With writers block.  Thank God it is the last few days of the year so I can fall on my "Year in Review" mode.

Wow, what a year!

I haven't a clue what went on in January and February because the calendar is b.l.a.n.k.  Nothing.  See.

New Year’s Resolution Jump Start

We all do it.  We all sit down at the kitchen table on January 1st and make the same list:

·       Lose 10 pounds
·       Eat healthier
·       Spend more time with the kids/family/dog
·       Save money
·       Exercise more (or just plain exercise)

By January 3rd the holiday bills have arrived, the leftovers have been stress-eaten and the kids haven’t gone back to school yet so running for the hills is becoming an option.  And we all feel worse for having made the damn list in the first place.

This year I’m doing things differently.  I’m making my list NOW – December 1st (and actually it’s November 30th so – go meee!).  That way when it all falls apart in three days I’ll know not to try them on January 1st.
