Haaaallooooo???? Anybody there???
I have been struggling for the past week or so trying to write a post to sum up this past year. After all it is tradition to look back and celebrate/mourn and bid farewell/good riddance to the current year. I got about as far as making this picture on PicMonkey last week.
2013 was indeed an eventful year in Riley World.
Yet here I sit.
Past noon on the last day of 2013.
Staring at a blank page.
Tapping the keyboard…hoping that something inspiring would appear on the blank page.
Whistling. Yes. I did whistle.
Nada. *heavy sigh*
I even went so far as trying different spacing. *wink*
And then…it hit me. I have NEVER liked New Year’s Eve. For me there has always been a certain pressure around it. When I was younger I felt I needed to have THE best time of the year on the 31st. Now??? Heck…I can barely stay up until midnight and there is something to be said about comfy clothes and having your bed only steps away.
And let us not forget the pressures of making resolutions… “dieting” usually made my list year after year. GAH!!!
And don’t get me started on the over-priced, over-inflated costs of a night out on the town!!!
Eeep…forgive me. See! Scarred I tell ya. Is there a term for a New Year’s Eve Scrooge?!?!?
So until tomorrow...
From our family to yours…may 2014 bring good health, much happiness and many exciting adventures!!!
