- 2013

Welp it's a good 2 weeks after the new year started so I feel like now is a good time to talk about that.  Considering I'm pretty much late for everything I'm basically right on time.

Listen, as far as new years go...I'm kind of stuck in this gray area: so completely ready for 2012 to be over, but no where near ready for 2013 to start.  Which doesn't really matter because 2013 is here, and has been for the past 2 weeks, ready or not.  And as far as ready goes I'm sort of kinda not really at all.  

Most of my hesitation around 2013 revolves around the fact that next month is my birthday.  I know it seems odd that I would shy away from a month where I shamelessly get to celebrate myself, but y'all this bday is the big one.

The Dirty 30 is nearly upon us.  And by us, I mean me.  And I'm not um...handling the idea of that so well.

But don't worry there will plenty of time for me to wallow and try to distract myself with many a shiny thing.  I've got something fun planned to start working on when my age starts to fall down the slippery slope next month (ohhhhhhhh foreshadowing!)...so I definitely didn't do resolutions this year.  That's nothing unusual because generally I don't like the idea of setting all these crazy goals I will never achieve and trying to change myself into someone I will never be.  But like most people I can't resist the fresh feeling that a new year offers.  The clean slate...the possibilities...the hope for a better tomorrow. 

Or maybe a tomorrow where I hate Comcast a little less than I did yesterday.  Or a day where Tweety drives me a little less crazy than he did yesterday...because oh yeah, he moved to Minnesota after Christmas and so far I'm not sure that it wasn't the biggest mistake of my life.  Or a day when I blog like I thought I would.  Hahahaha.  Or maybe a day where I do laundry...and then fold it and put it away THAT SAME DAY.  But, judging by the air dried laundry hanging all over my house for the past two days I'm pretty sure we're getting WAY ahead of ourselves with that one.

I have a smallish set of goals I'm working on.  We shall see what happens.  I'll keep you posted.  In the mean time I'm going to say something to you that I'm pretty sure no one said to you today: Happy New Year!

I may be late, but I like to think that my tardiness is at the very least, fashionable.
