I cannot believe that it is 2012 already. Where did the time go? I last posted around Thanksgiving—and now it is January. I had not planned on not blogging for these last weeks of the year; it just sort of happened. I even read other blogs rather sporadically and commented even less. Not sure why. But I bet there is a short story in those missing weeks.
I started looking for reasons, alphabetically: Absentmindedness? Accident? Adventure? Alien Abduction? Asthma Attack? Avarice? There is probably a bit of truth and fantasy in every option. So I will just say the time passed, and I am getting back onto my routine. Or trying to. Given what day it is, I resolve to post to my blog at least twice a week, as I intended when I started this adventure. Other resolutions will be posted later, probably.
As I look back on the holiday season, I do want to say thanks to my blogging friends, who kept busy even while I was silent. I also appreciated the time I was able to spend with my parents this year—they are both getting older with increasing problems with memory and general aches and pains. I cannot make things better for them, but I can spend time with them and share memories, pictures, movies, chocolate, and a general good time. My parents seemed to enjoy the little family open house early in December!
At this time of year, I also just love the Christmas Spirit—colored lights and Secret Santas and reconnecting with friends, spending time with family, enjoying holiday goodies and watching Christmas movies. It was a good holiday. I do resolve to keep my daily gratitude journal alive, even though I do not post everything from the journal on my blog.
Happy New Year, everyone! What are you thankful for as the old year moves on and the new year starts? Any resolutions you want to share?
