Someone asked me if I was making any New Year resolutions. Hell No! I gave up on those a long time ago. I had all the usual, lose weight, exercise more, learn more, read more. The last two were the only ones I could keep. One year I resolved to be nicer to my brothers. Needless to say that one didn’t last. I think I was 13 or 14 then. Now at 58 it’s a little bit easier to keep…a little bit. 🙂
Usually I make goals. One of my goals last year was to self publish more books. While I haven’t gotten everything published that I want to, I’ve made a good dent in it. Enough to be proud of myself. I’m formatting others and hope to get some up soon.
Last year I lost my Dad, then earlier this year, my father-in-law. This was this first holiday without them both and I miss them. However where as the end of last year was sad, this year is ending on an upswing. A few days ago my sister in law, who is more like a sister we are only a year apart, underwent a double lung transplant. Granted she is only 3 days post op but my brother called tonight and she is doing well.
So I give thanks to the powers that be that she is well. And will continue my life with no resolutions. Instead I will have goals.
I have three books I have to finish and want to get out this year. One is a paranormal romance, the other two are cozies. My goal is to have at least two finished and one published before we go on vacation in June. We have planned a family trip to England and you know that will bring more stories.
