No, I Am Not Dead Yet, really, I'm Not
B. One of my blogging friends, mentioned that when she initially told her husband that she was going to write a blog, he said "why? So you can vent to the world about things?" It does seem that whatever bitching that needs to be done on any given morning, becomes the topic of the day for me. So here is the thing. I was feeling bad about how negative, I seem to be getting. Is this age related? Is the world getting crazier? Am I just a freakin' bitch? Maybe all three of these things play into it. But here is the upshot. I am going to start up my blog now that I have made my way through the 2 month long Christmas season and the first two weeks of January organizational marathon. (more about that in a minute) AND if I feel the need to bitch to the world...and you can be sure that I will... I guess you will be forewarned that I am not getting any less cynical as I am aging. (none too gracefully, I might add)
C. The other reason for the extended break, is that once I discovered that I can focus on other things besides sitting at my computer, I came up with the idea that perhaps, I should try finding a little balance in my life. Bizarre, idea, I know. Perhaps, I should read more actual books, more actual magazines, spend more time with family and friends....WELL, What do you know? It was so nice to do those things that my two week break became my 2+ month hiatus.
D. Lastly, it didn't help to hear on the local Kansas City News that a 1970 class reunion committee was in the news because they got stiffed from the photographer that was hired to take their pictures. The spokeswoman for the group mentioned that this was especially sad because her and her classmates would probably be dying off before the next reunion in five years. Seems, I now realize that my days are limited so I had better get my ass in gear and accomplish a few more things.
So here I am at the beginning of a new year ready to blog, balance, prepare for my impending demise (according to class reunion chick, anyway) and I am setting forth with some plans. I realize that most people hate the words NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS. I, on the other hand, love, love, love setting an unobtainable goal for me to try to achieve. Gives me something to shoot for...over and over again. A contest of sorts with me being the only player. At what other sport can you be the only winner and the only loser.
So, I have already started the first of my resolutions. (start is the operative word here...you didn't see the word "accomplished" did you?) I have sorted out a couple of closets and sorta-kind-of gotten my house in shape for the new year. The glory of my resolutions are there is a lot of wiggle room.
One of my other resolutions is to blog without making it the main focus of my day. I will try to blog regularly and TRY not to be bitching all the time. Just part of the time. In that vein, you might notice that I am adding a new page for my unsolicited advice of running a household. As my day job of being a realtor is still in the toilet I have a lot of time to clean, organize and be a super-duper unpaid maid. Daily, I come across "wonder products" that I use to keep up our house and think that I need to share these glorious products with everyone I know. Hence the new page....Sass and Trash. (some of my readers will think my suggestions worthy of the trash bin) But still for the person that pointed out that people that just love housework, cooking and such... have sick minds, let me go on record as sicknesses goes, this one is fairly painless and doesn't cost anything in medical expenses.
So, I am back and will be blogging my little thoughts down from time to time and look forward to catching up with all of you. Hope you are having a great start to 2012.
PS To all the people that dropped me notes expressing their concern over my possible demise. I love you guys.
