Well folks, another year is almost at an end.
I’m not normally one to care that much about year-end recaps. They are certainly done to death by enough other people that I don’t need to add to the clutter. But perhaps in lieu of writing recap letter for Christmas cards that I am not going to get around to sending out anyway (sorry if you were expecting one), I can put some thoughts here instead.
I realized I hadn’t posted here in a while. In fact, I noticed it some time ago – trouble was, I had forgotten my own log-on info to be able to post! Oops. I didn’t think about it then, but maybe this is age-related. Luckily, I know my limitations, and I had recorded the information I needed. So far, I don’t seem to have forgotten where I keep those sorts of reminders, thus I am able to rant once again.
In my last post, I was already sounding like a codger, and complaining about waiting in long lines. I just had to pause and think about how old I actually am, and do some math to get the answer. Uh-Oh! That can’t be a good sign. Maybe it’s not all that bad; maybe I am just to a point where I no longer care about my actual age. I am probably going to still just act like a big overgrown kid anyway.
As a big overgrown kid, you might think that I am all excited about Christmas. I am, but only because I get to take a trip to see family, and we are all meeting somewhere that is home to none of us. This sounds strange, but since no one is really hosting in this case, I really think it will be kind of neat. Plus, it’s a place I have never been to before, so I am hoping to do some sightseeing as part of the trip. It’s been a few years since I went someplace new and just explored a little, so this trip should be fun.
Work has been slow this year. I REALLY want the duldrums to be over! Don’t get me wrong, I have been able to survive, which is more than others in less fortunate situations. I am thankful for my blessings, and sympathetic to those with bigger problems. There looks to be some good things on the horizon for 2012, though. I just have to keep myself from spoiling anything.
And on that note, it’s time for me to go. There’s stuff to be done, and I am not getting it done while ranting here.
Here’s to a great 2012!
