Have you made any resolutions yet? I have. I wonder how many I’ll break this year. I’m sure it will be most of them. Man, I never keep my resolutions! It starts out so well but then it just kind of peters out. Uhhh, what resolution?
This year is different. I have a list of resolutions. I have a list of things that I will be working toward.
I started this blog a few years ago to document my mom’s illness so that I wouldn’t have to repeat the same story when people called. I just pointed them toward my blog and they could keep up on a daily basis. It was great!!! After she passed away, I quit for a while because the subject of my blog, what was happening and how I felt about it, was no longer pertinent. Yet I was talked back into keeping the blog so that people could keep up with me and what was going on in Argyle.
After a while, it morphed into a quasi-political blog. Why??? Because I didn’t have a “regular” job and was, obviously, livid about where Obama was taking my country. Now I am getting sick and tired of politics, government, and Iowa! Iowa is but one state out of fifty. Why do I pay such attention to Iowa when, by the time I get to vote, the Republican Presidential field will be winnowed down to a few. I care about the results but I am so tired of hearing about the process!
One of my resolutions this year is to write more. I used to have a journal and I wrote in it almost daily. It was a catharsis for me. It helped me to organize my thoughts and feelings and to deal with issues, without blowing a gasket. I miss that. Yes, I will write more this year and yes, some of it will be about politics but not all of it. I want to get more into feelings, into what is important to me, into how it is going in Argyle. I think this year will be a very interesting year and I hope to give my thoughts and feelings about how it is affecting me and the people I love.
I have other resolutions but they can wait … at least until tomorrow. Oh, wait, the Iowa caucus is tomorrow. Who knows what I will write about tomorrow but I’m sure it won’t be what I expect today. Isn’t that always the way it goes?
Happy New Year, y’all. Talk to you soon.
