I’m so old just the sound of “2014” sounds very, very weird. Like I should be living in a futuristic world with hovercars and household robots. Okay, so maybe I’m not quite that old and decrepit.
Fact is, I love to mark the passage of another year making plans. I’m one of those who has her sacred list of resolutions ready on the first day. Rarely do my good intentions last more than a week. Already today, one has fallen by the wayside. I promised myself I’d have all my blogs posted at least one day beforehand, but I’m late with this one today because it completely slipped my mind.
I have a great excuse. I’m deep into a story I don’t want to leave. When I’m like that, I can’t keep track of time. I can’t remember what day of the week it is; I ignore my calendar. But really, an ex-SEAL, sailing in the Bahamas, diving with sharks… Wouldn’t you be a little excited too?
Since I’m late, I also don’t have anything important prepared to talk to you about (not that I ever do!), so how about this? What resolutions have you already broken? Or if you’ve been very virtuous these first four days of this glorious new year, what are you determined to stick with?
