I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I can’t help feel that they are land mines that doom us to failure rather than inspire us to succeed at something. Most people seem to focus on losing weight or quitting smoking or ending some bad habit. Those are hard to do and just because you make a promise on New Year’s Day to stop doing it does not make the magic solution to your problem.
This year I am going to resolve to be more sociable. I know that will be hard to measure and hard to gauge success or failure at such a noble effort, but I feel like I need to make a bigger effort to build a social network of people who have either common interests with me or who can help me achieve my own goals, like a mentor or someone in my field that can teach me or lead me to higher achievements.
So wish me luck with my resolution and I’ll wish you luck with yours.
It’s that wonderful time of the year again and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This years Christmas has been wonderful so far and I hope it has been for you too!
We had a great ham dinner and relatives galore. We had some great phone calls from far away family and cards and letters from old friends. All the presents are unwrapped and everyone got a treat. All in all it was a great time for all!
It has hard put to find anything on the television that isn’t pertaining to the Holiday Season, that is in full swing as I type these holiday words, we just can’t seem to get away from this over abundance of Holiday Spirit.
At the Mall and ALL the other stores have been playing holiday music for the past several weeks and have gone the extra mile to decorate in the most elaborate decorating frenzy ever, it just seems that it is everywhere and it can be a bit over whelming when you are as strapped for cash as I seem to be lately.
One more week and it will all be a memory, hopefully a good one for each and all.
I like Christmas music. Really I do but not all of the time. I really hate it when my favorite station goes to nothing but Christmas music. Worst of all, my two favorite stations to listen to in my car went to nothing but holiday music the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Well I may as well get into the mood and post one of the songs that used to make me giggle like a little girl when I was a kid. Yeah, I admit it! I did giggle like a little girl when I was a kid but I don’t know anyone that didn’t. Being a kid at Christmas was enough to bring giggles to us all. Happy giggling!!
Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??
I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.
