on a meme I've seen at other people's blogs: four places you've lived,
four jobs you've had, etc. This time, it was threes instead of fours,
but same idea.
As any of you who have tagged me for memes know, I'm really bad about
doing them. I enjoy reading them, but I rarely get around to doing
them, I'm afraid. This one, though, I decided to reply to right away.
It was quick until I got to the last item: Three things I'm looking
forward to this year.
I had no answer.
Not a single one.
I have no idea what I'm looking forward to this year. Surviving?
My day-to-day life is what it is. But what I see coming up in the next
year is more of the same. While I'm not unhappy overall, life is hard.
I am looking forward to seeing the twins learn and grow, to spending
time with family and friends, to (hopefully) learning more at my job.
OK, there are three things. I guess I just want to have a different
answer, an answer that is beyond
something that's a part of my daily life. As usual, the answer here
rests with me. If I want those things to look forward to, I need to
create the opportunity for them to happen.
That seems like so much work. Can't the universe just hand me something
on a silver platter? Just once? Please?
