I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions. Mostly because I tend to break them. And right now, with my final term looming, I’m not adding any commitments.
I did the reflection thing a few weeks ago, so no need to go there, either. So maybe I need to look forward, with a wish list for the coming year.
I hope this insane weather lets up, and I’m able to travel back and forth for this last semester in safety. And some more vacations like this year’s would be nice.
I hope I do a good job with the clients and agency I serve.
I hope I find a job when it’s all over. I hope it’s a job I can love.
I hope my kids continue to flourish in school, stay healthy, and stay safe (both emotionally and physically).
I hope my friends and family have a year of good health, prosperity, and good times.
I hope my pets stay healthy, and that the kittens mature into contented, cuddly cats.
I hope when school ends, I’ll have more time to walk the dog, exercise, and generally take better care of myself
I hope the dog park continues to be a place of safety and an oasis of peace for me. And I hope all my dog park friends have good times there as well.
I hope I find a home for Momma Cat.
I could go on and on. There are so many things to hope for. Financial stability. Nice clothing on sale. Political and economic stability, both home and abroad. Hell, world peace would be great, but I think only Pamela could achieve that.
This year the kids are with their father for New Year’s. I’m planning on an evening with friends. We might do dinner first. I’ve laid in some wine, cheesecake, and other snacks. There are great movies on the PVR, or we can rent a few. I plan to relax and enjoy it. And of course, this dude will be right by my side:
He’s the best company there is. Happy New Year to all!
