So here it is...the end of 2007. I hate changing years, having to remember the new year on my checks, new calendars, new everything. Let this be said about alcoholics of all stripes, we hate change. So this is the worst of all- a big change.
Plus it is amateur night when every normal person goes out to get all likkered up and make a fool of themselves. Strictly amateurs.
Yesterday I was all doom and gloom over the change. I'll never get a job. Nothing will ever change. Of course, it deosn't help waking up to my feet hurting like hell before I ever stand up. That puts the gloom into the day quickly. But today, ah, different day and things can change. My feet still hurt but I am well on my way to getting in to the senior center gym in Santa Clara, going back to hockey, swimming again, a new job right around the corner and a real pay check soon. I ordered all kinds of seed catalogs the other night, will be putting compost into the veggie garden and plucking more ripe lemons from the back yard tree. I may have to dig that hole for the new rose bush too.
I am going to do my best this year to not get down for every little thing, be hopeful about the future and share the joy.
Wow, for someone who doesn't make New year's resolutions that sure sounded like some!
Happy New Year to everyone who stops by here. May all our dreams come true in '08, starting with a Democrat in the White House.
