So far I've...
--Been to a funeral
--Found more (giant) mouse poop, this time in the basement
--While in the basement setting peanut butter smeared traps, I discovered a window with a huge leak and a wall of crumbling and soaking wet drywall
--Had my brand new security alarm malfunction on three separate occasions, once blasting the alarm at 3AM, once while I was at the doctor getting a flu shot and once while I was in the shower
--Received literally hundreds of Anonymous SPAM comments for moderation, thanks to the wonderful Huffington Post, for p-rn, er-ctile disfuncti-n, @ntidepress@ants and s-xy long@rie-- all of which I accidentally "published" instead of "deleted" from my blog.
--And my friend's dog has fleas. I know this for a fact based on the 23 flea bites I'm now sporting.
Happy New Year- Woo-hoo!
All that in just twenty-one days! Father Time has a sense of humor and apparently thinks I believe in turning the other cheek. But I say WHOA! I am not having a year of crazy again. No way!
So, I'm filling my 2013 calendar with positive, meaningful and fun things to occupy my time and hopefully turn my attitude and luck around.
I have scheduled...
--A 103rd birthday party for my friend Sal-- who has, by the way, already reserved a hall for his 105th birthday bash! I'm going to spend as much time with Sal as possible. I love him dearly and hope some of his great health and positive attitude rubs off on me.
--Graduation celebrations with three loved one, two in Ohio and one in Baltimore
--Yoga classes, I really need them
--Volunteering for an arts education program for public schools. I've worked with this program for years and enjoy the kids very much.
--Chocolate-- Yes, I'm scheduling chocolate on my calendar and planning to take a couple of baking classes with chocolate as the main ingredient.
--And, a serious commitment to more and regular blogging. I find writing and communicating with all of you good for my heart and soul so I'm working to get back in the swing-- which means spending significantly less time wondering aimlessly on Pinterest.
My apologizes for the delay in wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year. I hope it brings wonderful adventures, good times, great health and a whole lot of fun!
How the new year treating you so far?
