Okay! It's that time of year again!

I'm not sure I WANT to welcome in the New Year since 2011 left a lot to be desired but like Time, so doth the New Year march on regardless of how I feel about it. So, hi 2012.

For the past couple of years I've listed some categories that I intend to work on. I did pretty good in 2009 with the Creative category but 2010 and 2011 were kinda a wash. Because of that, I've decided I'm not going to list anything specific here. What will be will be and all that rot.

As to the actual day itself. The first day of the New Year was more exhausting than I thought it would be. I started out with church which was fine. The wee ones were all cute and lovely. Then I had the brilliant idea to take ma out to lunch when I got home. I figured it'd take at the most an hour and a half and then I could have a rest before going over to a friend's for dinner/helping her organize her books.

Well! It took about three hours since the restaurant was so busy. So I had just enough time to drop ma off and then run over to the lady's place. Dinner was okay; we managed to sort out her paperwork and the conversation was brisk and lively.

But man am I beat. I miss the days of having endless energy.

P.S. I should make 2012 the year I acquire new icons.

P.P.S I wish LJ let you keep the layout with the year you started it in.

Okay! It's that time of year again!

Let's put our hands together for the New Year! Mister 2011!

As a side note I have to tell you 2011 just looks weird. Hopefully this won't cause self esteem problems.

Here are our usual line up of categories:

1. Physical - Since I seem to be holding steady in other areas of health, it's time to work on the exercise part of the equation.

2. Creative - I don't even know what to do about this anymore. Maybe I should scale it a back to writing sentences. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to listen.

3. Financial - Resume! Resume! Resume! And yes, Nyx. I know I have no accent acutes - curse my anglophone keyboard - but hey, to start up again IS still kind of appropriate, wouldn't you say? Also, try to untangle the stupid financial mess I'm in. Sigh

4. Spiritual - Hmm. Since I've failed at both getting in touch with the world beyond and getting in touch with myself, maybe I should try getting in touch with other people :)

And on that note, off to bed!

Okay! Time for the Standard New Year's Procedure. Since I'm lazy, I'm just going to reuse last year's format. If it ain't broke, why fix it. And so, for the fabulously even year of 2010, the list will be thus:

1. Physical - Build on what I accomplished in 2009 and improve on my health even more. This year I will add a bit of exercise to the program.

2. Creative - Expand on what I accomplished in 2009, either by revisiting the things I scribbled and embellishing them or finding a way to make the writing process itself less of a trauma.

3. Financial - Get back into the habit of saving money and succeed this time! Also, I was asked expand on what will have a big impact on the financial front. So here it is. This is the year, theoretically, that my boss will retire. So, my options are: 1. Buy her business. 2. Start looking for a new job. Hence the need to get off my bum and do some planning.

4. Spiritual - Learn mediation and become more in touch with the worlds beyond. Hmm... How 'bout I start with getting in touch with myself, mmkay?

Now that that's out of the way, I'm pleased to announce that I managed to WRITE SOMETHING! Shocking yes. Didn't go too badly. I allotted myself an hour and I got to where I wanted to be with ten minutes to spare, so yay.

The swamp was creeping in the backyard again.  )

I didn't realize it's been so long since I last posted here. Meh. Same ole same ole I guess. Anyway, at the beginning of the year, instead of making a zillion resolutions like most people do, I thought I'd up the chances of my success and resolve to do only one thing. I picked my health to work on because over the last three or four years, I developed chronic problems with my lungs. And so my resolution was to find some way of not picking up every single cold virus that happened my way.

I won't go into details but I'm happy to say that I managed to make it through 2008 without ending up in emergency or long term care at the hospital even once. Was touch and go a few times, but I muddled through.

And so, as 2008 draws to a close and 2009 waits in the wings, I decided to broaden my range a bit. My resolutions are thusly broken into four catergories.

1. Physical - Build on what I accomplished in 2008 and improve on my health even more. Possibly get of some of my multiple medications.

2. Creative - Make an concentrated effort to get back into my writing.

3. Financial - Get back into the habit of saving money.

4. Spiritual - Learn mediation and become more in touch with the worlds beyond.

Here's to both the old year and the new. May we all move a little further along life's road. To close, an excerpt from Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
