Good morning all and Happy New Year.
The festivities of the past month are over - it's time to get back to routines. I'm a sucker for routines; they make my life easier - a bit predictable; but easier (kinda like all those lists...).
So what can you expect from me in 2010?
To my friends on Twitter - I'm a disappointment; I know. I don't tweet much. I just don't "get" it. Usually when I have something to say - it involves a lot more than 149 characters. So don't expect a change in that department; sorry. I'd much rather fire off an email so that I can get everything said in one round. I do read what you tweet though - if that's any consolation.
To my friends on Facebook (who don't read this so why am I bothering?) - I'm a huge disappointment in this area as well. It's another thing I just don't get. Constant status updates, playing games and exchanging "gifts"? Not gonna happen - another thing that won't be changing in the new year.
And you know how I said I don't do resolutions? I don't. I refuse to "resolve" to do anything - but the beginning of a new year always fills me with excitement of a clean slate. And I will do a bit of pondering to attempt to figure out what I want out of this year. I can't write them down - we all know why. As I am ::ahem:: maturing I am realizing that there are things I want to do and I need to begin to realize some of those dreams - no matter how big or small.
This month will bring my 19th wedding anniversary - this fact amazes me in so many ways. How has it been 19 years already?
This year will bring Man-Child's official driver's license. (He is getting better (he has yet to actually run into anything and we are both still alive!) - he just gets tense about traffic - must get that from his dad - who really gets tense when there is any kind of traffic).
This year will also usher in Man-Child's junior year in high school; which means that there is only two more years until he's off to college! Again - how has this happened? It was only yesterday that he began kindergarten....
I expect that this year will have plenty of highs and lows (hopefully more highs), lots of love, some sorrows and surely a lot of laughter.
And I expect that I will be sharing all that comes along with you! It's gonna be AWESOME!
Happy New Year my friends!
