I love vacation time because I’m able to stay awake long enough to watch the
lame awesome television shows that come on after 9 p.m. so late. Last night, we watched Hoarders – a show about people who can’t part with their stuff (including trash). There is often a lot of crying and near break-down moments. Can I just say, I love shows about people who make me look so boring non-psychotic normal. Still, I feel sorry for the kids growing up in that environment.
Today, I cleaned out a couple of drawers
just to prove that I. am. not. a. hoarder. I’m not! I need all those random notes and lists. Don’t even think about throwing out the recipes! And how could we even begin to think about throwing out something the kids made/wrote? because I’ve had some extra time on my hands. I found some old journals from back in the day when I hand wrote all my thoughts down you know, back when the Earth’s core was still cooling.
1/1/01 Today is the beginning of a new year…. blah… blah… blah and my resolutions are to:
*Wear more green
… NEXT ENTRY …
9/17/01 Blah, diggity blah….
So, let’s see how I did. First, I DID start running. On May 2nd. Two thousand nine. Eight and half years later. Sadly, I struggle to remember my anniversary (I know it is in June… shouldn’t that count for something?) but the day I started running is engraved in my mind.
Second, after declaring my intent to write more NINE MONTHS passes before I write again. How good am I? I could have conceived and birthed a child in that time frame.
And the last one about wearing more green has been on my resolution list since the late 80s when my boss told me I should wear more green because it really brought out the color in my eyes. This advice I took from a man with a serious comb-over.
While the rest of you may be thinking of ways to better yourself by making resolutions, I think I am going to work up a list of things I want more of. Like eating more peanut butter. And Stoned Wheat Thin Crackers (because the visual of crackers smoking something funny makes them that much more tasty to me).
