As the lucid air of a full bodied year comes to close, I feel compelled to rush over to this speck of my Internet Universe and well, you know, tick one off for the record.
I counted it up, with this entry I'll have exactly 23 for the year, a clear miss for a true 2 per month average. Oh well....tis what it is.....a lack of something or other.
I've never been a resolution type of gal, so this evening change of numeral implications doesn't create a huge impact in my life. If anything, the last day of the year creates an ominous acceleration of my past years accomplishments, experiences, or lack of, that line up for me to take stock, analyze and punctuate with appropriate ! (meaning good for me) or ? (meaning WTF was I thinking) or ........ (meaning clear unconnected confusion of the who knows type) etc etc.
I suppose within that car crash of accumulative 2007 life facts, it provides a bit of a wishful push to look around the gate into 2008 with a trace of motivation, clean slate potential and dreamy opportunity. I suppose. All a matter of perspective.
I had a good Christmas. I prevailed. I survived and will not be boycotting next years festivities. I have realized Christmas isn't as jolly anymore with my daughters growing up. There just isn't the same type of magic to be derived from putting a big bow on a snowboard, or wrapping up a cute Ipod.
Barbie's and Teddy Bears and lots of cheap toys was way- way- funner..........thankfully there's always the promise of future grandchildren. I'm already plotting to be one of those rockin' Grannies that go overboard with all the unapproved toys .....of the annoying nature. Fun Grannie, Sugar Grannie, Extreme Grannie, Lovin Grannie, Break the Rules Grannie, Adventure Grannie.....oh my darling future Grand babies, we are going to have a good old fashioned Rebecca rockin' time. (grin)
On the sentimental note of Christmas Gone and New Year fast approaching
I extend my best wishes to all those I've known online.
May your 2008 be full of surprises, accomplishments and satisfactions.
And may I suggest...
Add a bit of adventure, sugar, extreme, lovin, break the rules and fun.
