When I started my blog I had no idea where I was going with it. (Umm… acutely apparent!) All I knew, in the spring of 2015, that it was important to me to share my prolific stories about this craziness we call life from a Mrs., a Mom, and a Gracy’s perspective. It’s difficult to grasp that I’m 63, married (shockingly still holding), raised three almost perfect kids, and have four perfect grandchildren (thus far)! I’m all encompassed by my immediate family and “immediate” in laws…I delicately pretend to “care” when I don’t, and intently pretend not to “care” when I do! I’ll be eternally grateful… for my priceless material!
“Siri, play Baby it’s Cold Outside”. Unscrew my Simi, flip the switch on my fire place…and I’m all over it! Throw me my throw! The unsurpassed Holiday Season has come and gone and that’s the second best reason to curl up and write a blog.
This is the time of year my blogs are committed to expressing how much I despise shopping. Buying an abundance of socks, underwear, and gift cards are SO insignificant and I might add, senseless, to the most worthy. The Mall of Georgia is my rendition of hell. (Cheese wafer’s for everyone) This is the moment in time I relish in turning your attention to my annoying and lengthy tangent of how much I loathe resolutions! I’m going to start swimming daily at the Y…Oh for sure. I’m cleaning out closets tomorrow…Uh Huh! Drinking less at night…yea RIGHT! Shoot me, it ain’t happening, and we know it. Walk more, travel more, and call old friends more…conceivably til Feb. one and then we shall declare it a phenomenon!
2018… will bring tears of joy and indisputable sadness, but our focus should center on enthusiasm. A new beginning will compel us to have understanding (white house not excluded), an unwavering determination and a vivacious appetite for vitality! ( feasible or inconceivable?) OK …and drink more water #blahblahblah.
Happiness and good fortune doesn’t fall down the chimney once a year in a bright red suit being all jolly and nice. My flippant attitude has taught me a thing or two. Only good people can bring happiness and consequently good fortune. Gather around good people and I “resolute” they will bring you good fortune AND a bottle of wine!
You know…the Jolly and Nice ones!
