I’ve been busy today! This will be my third post today. I think for me that’s a record! My other two posts were for flash fiction, which I love to do. Go check them out if you have a minute.
The year is fading fast. Only a few more days left. I’ve all ready been reading posts on New Year resolutions. I usually don’t make any myself. I would be bound to break them. I mean, my life is always changing, always evolving into something different and new. So should I stifle myself with resolutions? I don’t think so. The number one resolution people make is to lose weight. Number two is to stop smoking.
Do I need to lose weight? Hell yes, but if I make it a resolution to do so, I will be sure to break it and then I will feel bad. Why put myself through that? Losing weight is an everyday thing with me and that’s enough pressure. As for smoking, well I don’t do that so it’s a moot point.
But wait Jackie, you think, there are other things you could make resolutions about. How about that novel you want to finish (actually 2 now)? Or how about your blog? Are you happy with the way it’s going? Do you want to change anything? Yes, and no would be my answer to that.
I’m thinking of changing things just a bit on here. More original stories, more reader participation, more personal, maybe. Just a few things I’m thinking about. We’ll see what decisions I come up with by January 1. I know I would like to see my blog grow more. I’ve been sitting stagnant for 6 months now, things need to be changed I think. Just not sure how. Any suggestions would be more than welcome!
So then, let’s get on with today’s celebrations!
National Chocolate Candy Day ~~ Now this one makes sense doesn’t it? How many people still have Christmas candy sitting around the house? Plenty I’m betting. Today is the day to devour some of that! Go ahead, eat a piece for me. And with New Year’s eve just around the corner and that pesky resolution to lose weight closing in fast, today is a day to celebrate and eat some chocolate candy without guilt!
Card Playing Day ~~ Another good idea for you or the kids to do while on Christmas vacation! Play a good game of cards. I have always enjoyed card games. My dad was a master Cribbage player and taught me what he knew. I even beat him once or twice. Maybe. He really was good at it. Here’s a list of some card games you and your family might enjoy while eating those chocolate candies and sipping that leftover eggnog.
War, Rummy, Crazy 8’s, Gin, Euchre, Sheepshead, Cribbage, Bridge, Go Fish, Poker, Texas Hold’em, Black Jack, Solitaire and I’m sure there are lots more out there.
Gone To Pot Day ~~ The creators of this holiday decided to make a ‘gone-ta-pott’ day to celebrate all the things that had gone wrong with them during the month.
Get rid of that pile of laundry. No! Not out the window or hidden in some closet. Wash, dry it and put it away. Ha-ha!
Well that’s it for today people. Tomorrow is another day, see you then!
