For some of us, this has been quite the year. Kathy has switched careers entirely-gone from a "Staples Gal" to her own Business person-I'm so impressed by her. And 'nester has helped her DD go through a nightmare of Cancer treatment. Shirley's body seems to be letting her down at times. And I've had my own Sad times. I'm sure that there are things some of the others don't share-things that bother each of us that we keep to ourselves.
And there are good things too-Dee has a new (beautiful)grandbaby to cuddle & spoil, Sabr is awaiting the arrival of #2-for me the best was have Elsbeth visit with her dh (he's as nice as she is).
So as we prepare to greet 2014-what do you do? Do you prepare Resolutions to faithfully follow-or break? Or do you do as I do & think & reflect on the year that has been? Forget the resolutions-they sound like somebody telling me what I HAVE to do, & I've never been much good at that. I might consider what would be good to change for the better-but if I "resolve to do it"-you can bet I will break it before the week is done! But I was sitting here thinking of the year that was-not just the sad times, though of course, that predominated this year. How well my garden did-how expanding it & trying different & more things probably contributed to my mental survival at times. And even wondering what the next year will bring-hopefully nothing as sad.
So what do you do around this time? Do you remember back when?-back when the new millenium was to start & the world was to end? Mike worked with computers in the hospital then & everyone was panicking & he was so disgusted. (He had to work that night-just in case--so Adam & I watched the ball drop in New York-& Adam was so disappointed, I think he figured he'd been gypped if that was all that was going to happen!)
