I open with this picture from Dirty Work at the Crossroads, the melodrama that my husband ,Steven, directed at Ilion Little Theatre some years ago, because I am, as I was on stage, hanging my head in shame. In the play, it was because the villainess in yellow was about to expose my deep, dark secret. Right now it is because I am making yet another foolish blog post.
In my defense, it is too cold for any Mohawk Valley adventures! Actually, that is not strictly true today. It was supposed to get up to 21 degrees. That is practically a heat wave. I could have gone for a nice walk or even a run, if only I had had enough oomph. And here we come to the ugly truth about me.
I had meant to write something while at work today. I thought I might wax eloquent about things I MIGHT do. Kind of a Preview of Coming Attractions. Instead I worked on a letter to a friend, wrote a few more notes on my new novel, and worked on cryptogram and crossword puzzles. Um, I did all this while on breaks, so any co-workers reading this don’t need to go squealing on me to the bosses.
Do you suppose that I am getting old? SAY IT AIN’T SO!!!! Of course I am older than I was yesterday; everybody is, that’s how it works. The fact is, although I spent most of today feeling less tired than I felt yesterday, I am once again VERY TIRED NOW. Dammit.
It is early January. I declare it not too late for New Year’s Resolutions (oh don’t go snootily telling me you don’t DO New Year’s Resolutions; I am not up for an argument). I shall make one now. Better blog posts!
Incidentally, the above photo is our dearly departed doggy, Spunky. I included it because he looks so relaxed and happy to be resting. It makes me think of another change I’d like to make in 2018. I want to find another doggy friend. Now that would be something to blog about!
