2-0-1-9 – JANUARY GOALS – #2

No kidding!!! Get the fuck outta’ here 2018 WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME 2019!!!!
If this could be a year without any major illnesses or death!
holy hell…
No resolutions for me. I make personal contracts and the only contract I have with myself in 2019 is to be healthier than I was in 2018 and to keep breathing!
That’s all I’m looking for in the coming year.

I don’t care if I accomplish this in a box with a fox, in a house with a mouse or on the train in the fucking rain.
I will not get sick. No sir. No, ma’am.
I’m going to live. Oh yes, I AM!
I was thinking I wouldn’t come back to blogging but here I am. Turns out I just needed a break and most importantly, all of you sent me messages or left me sad faces when I said I was closing the blog.
Funny thing about having your own blog. You can close it and open it as much as you want. Much like your legs…
So. Go me and thank YOU!!!
Here in the blogging world we always pick a “Word of the Year.”
I’ve never thought about it before but I wonder how many people outside of our crazy world choose one as well.
If anyone outside of our blogging bubble can fill me in please drop it in the comments below.
Ooooookaaaaayyyyyy…. Drum roll, please…

I use my WOTY as a personal compass. My beacon of light shining upon my path in the New Year.
This year I’ve been going back n’ forth on a couple of words but I couldn’t choose! So, to hell with it. I’m picking two words for my wordsssssssss of the year. Because I can.

First up –
Inhale. Exhale. One foot in front of the other.


Next up –
Truly, I just need to get my shit together.
Too many proverbial irons in the fire, emotionally and physically.
Raise your hand if you’ve been there??
I need to rein some things in.
2018 was a rough year for me. I felt like I was in a human taffy pull.
A word of advice to 2019, hands off. No pushing or pulling or tugging. In fact, in the words of John Lennon, just “let it be.”
Let me be…
Raise your hand if you’re standing tall facing day two of 2019 with a smile on your face and a fire in your soul!

Raise your hand if spent New Year’s Eve at home, crashing at a friend’s or waking up next to a stranger thinking you’ve chalked up yet one more questionable life decision.
Raise your hand if your head still feels like it’s exploding and you can’t find your shoes or bra.

Raise your hand if you’d like to share all of those down n’ dirty details in the “Mimi Zone” where your questionable decisions and self-inflicted stupidity will be laughed at and judged accordingly.

It’s 2019, people!!!!
Time to get “jiggy with it!”
Speaking of questionable decisions…
Why yes, yes I did just quote Will Smith on my blog…
What the fuck is the matter with me??? It’s too early and I need coffee… LOTS of coffee…
Time – Too early!
Temp – Fucking cold.
Mood – Ready for spring!
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Politics. I just can’t deal with anymore…
Best thing – IT’S A BRAND NEW YEAR PEOPLE!!!!!
Be well.

  1. Oh boy! I hear that. I remember writing in one Christmas letter how happy I was to realize I had finally had a year in which no one I knew was sick or died.
    I’m trying to raise my hand and stand tall, but that’s just too much activity for me and my head cold today. I’m breaking into a sweat just typing on the keyboard. Or maybe that’s just the life-giving coffee taking effect… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Keep living, keep breathing, and I will try to do the same!

    1. Aw, I hope you’re feeling better soon. Being sick is always such an inconvenience. Cold meds, liquids and plenty of rest. Ancient advise but it works! Sending healing hugs to you. โค

  2. I love your word. I knew what it was before you got to the word. I love it. I’m also happy that you’re blogging again. You can do as much or as little as you want. No stress.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Big hug and lots of love. โ™ฅ

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ – I remember. I was bummed when you did that. I think we should both just stay the course. – Here’s to a New Year filled with many blogging topics and MUCH motivation to keep us writing about them! – Happy New Year!


  3. Those are words to live by, for sure! Must definitely get more organized. ๐Ÿ‘

    Glad you changed your mind about the blog. So many people would have missed you! I think trying to publish every day leads to burnout, though. That happened to me during the 2017 A to Z Challenge and I never fully recovered. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

    We love a good New Year’s Eve party and had a blast in Niagara Falls. ๐ŸŽˆ It was the first time in decades we could get away overnight for the occasion. โ˜บ๏ธ

    Wishing you a fabulous 2019! ๐Ÿท

    1. Thank you, Debbie. ๐Ÿ™‚ SO happy you were able to get away. It’s like a mini vacation when you’re not able to do it all the time. – So excited to see what’s in store in 2019 or maybe I’m just excited to see 2018 behind me..
      Either way, whether we like it or not it’s out with the old and in with the new and I am SO ready!

  4. Happy New Year!!!!! I’m glad you’re back. I’m gonna try and get through the next few months w/o too many freak outs but we have to move by the end of June and I’m pretty bummed out about it. I just wish I could get started on the things I need to do. Hoping to start that in Feb. And we will be seeing the boys again at the end of March for Mark’s and Russell’s birthdays.

    1. Aw, that’s too bad that you have to move. I know how much you love it there. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Heeyyyyyyy, maybe you’ll move closer to those grandbabies… Just a thought. ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. I spent my New Year’s at home. 2018 held some shocker’s for I got a job and I even got the chance to try my hand at being a floral clerk. That is an opportunity that I didn’t see coming! Being creative with flowers is pretty cool, although the floral manager can be a real bitch. I am going to stick with it. I must be pretty good, everything I have created has sold…so yay me. The best part of my job is getting to help people, be around people, and laugh with people who are not my kids or my husband. Bonus…they pay me and I have a new lease on life. I even sold alcohol and cigarettes to this lady who told me that her space ship had landed the day before and she was born yesterday…WTF?! LOL Looking forward to what the New Year holds.

    1. Hahahahaha! See???? The spaceship lady is blog worthy! C’mon back! – Also. I’m happy you like your job so much. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thank you. I really do like the WOTY but a definite no on the resolutions. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!


  6. Karen, I know 2018 was really tough. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am sending lots and lots of positive vibes that you will have a beautiful and healthy 2019!! Gotta say, I love your fox, mouse, and train rhyme. Iโ€™m so glad youโ€™re back to blogging. I need to get my blog going again. I actually would have done it already but Iโ€™ve had a lot of personal crap going on that keeps getting in the way (hubby and hubbyโ€™s family, ugh!). Your word(s) of the year are perfect. I think Organize ought to be one of my words too. And Create. In 2019, I will create stories that Iโ€™ll submit to publications; recreate my blog (moving it to WordPress and redesign), and create a space for myself apart from all the crap going on around me! Yes, to a brand new and positive year for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค


    1. OHHHH!!!!!! I’M SUPER EXCITED FOR YOU TO BE WRITING AGAIN!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO IT!! I agree. Everyone needs that space to create and just be free from all of the static going on around them. A person needs to center themselves and clear out that background noise. I need to do it daily. I feel like I’m always “on” so I need a moment to be the old crone that I truly am. ๐Ÿ™‚ – Oh. I am so looking forward to all things new and wonderful from you this year!
