Yeah, That New Year Thing

No idea if I’m going to do anything for New Year’s. My husband works, so if I go, I’ll be on my own. My friend Lucinda has a party every year, and I have fun, but it’s a matter of dragging my butt over there, ifyouknowwhatImean. I’m still Hermit Mary, because really? Only one day of hermiting this vacation. Well, two if you count Sunday when the dh was sick.

But I have made my goals list. It gets a bit repetitive, so to sum up: revise a ton, write 3 books and 2 novellas, walk/eat better and read more.

I’m not doing resolutions this year as much as goals. And I’ve even broken it down by month.
