Hurry! Rip down the lights, cram the ornaments in a box, roll the stockings up and call it a year. I was so NOT into it this year. I can honestly say I didn’t sing one Christmas carol. I wasn’t enamored by the sparklies, or wooed by the festivities. All I wanted was for the holiday season to be over so a little peace could come back to my home. I am warn and weary from all the go-go-going and can’t handle much more.
Have I mentioned that I am an extroverted-introvert? I love to socialize…sometimes. But more often than not, I want quiet. I want controlled environments and schedules. I want check-marks on the list and to be done with it. My days of multitasking are D-O-N-E! I mean it. This year has gone by in a blur. That’s fine if you like that. I am more of a savor the flavor kind of gal. Hopefully, next year I will be able to slow down.
This year saw a lot of traveling for fun, joy and sadness. I know I have one cross-country drive slotted for next year and maybe another at the end of the summer. I hate traveling. I get carsick and have panic attacks. Not only that, I have a home to run. When I go away, I’m not there to run it and that causes me more unrest. I suppose I should look on the bright side. I’m not flying. Not that I mind flying, but I’ll not have the TSA putting their sausage fingers anywhere on my person. Knowing how I am the epitome of Murphy’s Law, I’d no doubt get randomly selected for a pat-down and there would only be the creepy guy with the shadowed past on duty. Thanks, but no thanks.
In my personal life I have been pretty productive. In my writing…not so much. I have to find a better balance, make a schedule and stick to it. That, my friends, is easier said than done.
So, even though it is a few days until New Years, I have some resolutions to make.
#1 Make more time for writing.
B. Slow down and stay home.
17~ Don’t forget the reason for Christmas.
AABB- NEVER FLY BECAUSE TSA WANTS TO MOLEST ME.
There! How was that? Hope you all have a safe and blessed new year.
Peace, love, and God’s will.
