The new year and resolutions…

Happy New Year!catplaidhat

New Year Resolutions?
None for me!

I have made resolutions in the past.  I don’t remember what they were but I do remember that I didn’t keep them. So, now I just don’t make them so I don’t feel bad at the end of the year when I realize that I am a resolution failure.

That’s all I have to say on the subject!
Now on to other stuff.

I do reflect on the year gone by.
This year there are things I am happy about
and some things not so much.

Happy stuff…

  • time spent with friends
  • lots of time to read…76 books read in 2018
  • going to bed late and sleeping til nine or ten
  • started keeping a journal
  • organizing closets
  • finishing the kitchen…except for crown molding

Not so happy stuff

  • didn’t get the living room painted
  • decluttering still a work in progress
  • falling behind in all things blog related

About the blogs…I have been neglecting most everything blog related.

  • I apologize to all who have participated in the In Other Words challenge for not spending time with you. I do appreciate your writing and linking your poems and stories. Please forgive me.
  • I have also been negligent in responding to comments in general. I have no excuse. I just have not been making good use of my time when it comes to the computer.
  • I have not been to visit blogs I follow, and I am sorry. Again no excuse.
  • The most recent blogs were written in November and scheduled for December with the plan to update as the month progressed. Just didn’t happen.

One thing I have found in retirement is that the less you have to do the less you do. When I worked I made myself get other things done. In retirement, I tell myself I will do whatever needs to be done later. Of course, later never comes it just gets put on tomorrow’s to-do list.

Maybe I do have one resolution…
