And like that … (poof) … it’s gone. 2016 did its best Keyser Soze impression and disappeared a couple days ago and with it went the last seconds of my “great” resolution challenge. I put great in quotes because this challenge ended up being anything but. Then again, I didn’t forget about these resolutions completely […]
I am now marking the three-quarter milestone on my 2016 Resolution journey and already looking forward to not doing this again next year. Promises are a LOT easier to break or forget about completely when you haven’t written them down and shared them with the world. Or so I would imagine based on my personal […]
We have reached the midway point of the year 2016 and all I have to say about that is holy crapdoodle. It seems so unfair that once we finally reach adulthood, the glory land of our childhood desires, that time decides to put the hammer down and rush through this phase as quickly as possible. […]
There was a time when the adage “time flies when you’re having fun” seemed valid commentary on the circumstances of life. Now, at 44, it wholly needs to be adjusted to accommodate the fact that time flies simply by my being awake. On the bright side, this does mean far fewer moments of life wasted […]
The long wait is finally over. After two full months plus a day, thanks mister leap year, I am finally able to eat chocolate once again. I haven’t been this excited since high school grad night only this time I KNOW I’m getting what I want.
You crazy, paranoid Americans and your walls. Always with the walls. Usually you’re yapping semi-coherently about wanting one along the Mexican border, or more accurately finishing that one, but now some of the looniest in your midst, hello Republicans, have openly fantasized about erecting a wall along the Canadian border. A 2015 survey found an […]
2 I will not eat a single morsel of chocolate until my birthday on March 1st Of all six resolutions I made this year, this is the one you most likely scoffed at. Certainly those that know me well did, sometimes even to my face; cough, cough, hello nice neighbour. For that matter, I did […]
Happy New Year! Hey, give me a break I’m only three days late. Last year I didn’t write a New Year’s post until January 15th. Give me another year and I’ll have clued in to the fact that New Year’s comes every year at the exact same time and I could actually write pre-emptively for […]
Another year is coming to a close which means my mind has been preoccupied with formulating hapless promises that NEXT year will finally be the year I live up to my own expectations. 2015 has been such a strange year for me. Some major events occurred which will colour my kids’ lives forever, such as […]
I’m publishing a post about New Year’s resolutions on January 15th which in its own way sums up everything you need to know about me and resolutions. This is not to say I dislike resolutions. I’m just not very good at following through on resolutions.
