Welcome 2021!

It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m writing blog posts from bed.

I spend a lot of time in my bed, on account of my computer is at the headboard and I use it to watch films, surf the internet, and review photos.

My goal for 2021 is to spend less time in bed and more time with my friends.

Or maybe spend more time in bed with my friends?

Now wouldn’t that be IMPRESSIVE?

I’m not making New Year’s resolutions for 2021 on account of I still feel like we’re stuck in 2020 with the rollout of vaccines nowhere in sight.

No one has given me a date, or even suggested a range of dates when I will be vaccinated, so as far as I’m concerned, we’re still stuck in the middle of this coronavirus pandemic.

Although the light at the end of the tunnel is visible.

For New Year’s Eve I bought three bottles of champagne and I plan to drink at least one of them.

It seems fitting to send off 2020 with some Chinese food and a bottle of bubbly, and that’s exactly what I plan to do. . .

Eat Chinese takeout and drink champagne while watching terrible romantic movies.

Trust me, last New Year’s Eve I was partying my tail off.

This is a MUCH DIFFERENT New Year’s Eve, my friends.

Hopefully we’ll be in a much better place soon.

Stay safe, stay healthy.

Welcome 2021!

2020 Resolutions

In 2018, I made a series of resolutions I kept:

  1.  Drink more beer.
  2. Spend more time with family and friends.
  3. Watch more Supernatural.
  4. Write more.
  5. Be unapologetic about my life experiences.
  6. Go to unSCruz.
  7. Be open to dating men who fall outside my usual parameters.
  8. Say yes to new experiences more often.
  9. Take care of the people closest to me.
  10. Love more.  Love easily.  This world will not suffer for a little more love in it.

I didn’t make any resolutions in 2019, but I’m back for 2020 and ready to make a few more resolutions:

  1. Dance as if your life depends on it.  It’s good for you.
  2. Make love more. Don’t be stingy with affection.
  3. Don’t worry about what other people are thinking.  Live your life YOUR way.
  4. Recognize that the universe may be pointing you in a different direction than the direction you think you’re headed in and trust in that path.
  5. Be flexible.  Maybe the image of what you think your life should be like is what’s making everything seem so complicated and difficult.
  6. Join some clubs, especially ones which support and develop the skills of women.
  7. Find new passions.  There’s so much out there to enjoy, keep looking for new and exciting ways to live your life.
  8. Take a creative writing class.  Learn how to write a book.
  9. Travel more.  Hit Ireland with your sister.  Get out and explore more, not just locally but internationally.
  10. Be thankful for everything you have.

So there you have it, my 2020 New Year’s resolutions in a nutshell.  I did pretty good in previous years so here’s hoping my 2020 is just as successful as years past.


2018 Resolutions

MichelleEvery new year, I make resolutions which I rigidly adhere to for the next week before TOTALLY IGNORING THEM until the next new year rolls around.

This year I’m making new year’s resolutions I know I can keep:

  1.  Drink more beer.  Sure, it’s like liquid bread but it’s tasty and I like it and it has less alcohol than mixed drinks (which I am prone to consuming).  So DRINK MORE BEER!
  2. Spend more time with family and friends.  Surrounding myself with people who love me is NEVER a bad thing.
  3. Watch more Supernatural.  Jensen and Jared have my heart <3.
  4. Write more.  Blog.  Be honest and transparent.  Even when it means admitting to receiving a “facial.”  *facepalm
  5. Be unapologetic about my life experiences.  They have made me who I am.  The good, the bad, and the wild and crazy make me, ME!
  6. Go to UnSCruz.  Bring The Swede!
  7. Be open to dating men who fall outside my usual parameters (40 something year old lumberjacks).
  8. Say yes to new experiences more often.  No one likes a stagnant woman.  Grow.  Perpetually.
  9. Take care of the people closest to me – my sons, my parents, and my siblings.  LIFE IS FLEETING so ENJOY WHAT YOU HAVE RIGHT NOW.  I mean RIGHT NOW!
  10. Love more.  Love easily.  This world will not suffer for a little more love in it.
