Day 1

For day 1 of the new year I decided to relax like it was my job. If only, right? I feel as though I used to do this more often, though I think that's not accurate. I think I used to absolve myself of the guilt of it more often. Food for thought in 2012.

What are your thoughts and deeds for the first day of our new year?


  1. Anonymous1:08 AM

    mostly relaxing with mimosas and a nice greasy meaty breakfast, hanging with a friend in the backyard while the boys played with power tools again, then a nap, and some listmaking. managed to hold off on the blogging till the end of the day, as it felt a bit like work.

  2. yesterday...let's see...

    breakfast was speed goat (antelope) summer sausage with port wine cheese on crackers because i couldn't be bothered to make anything.

    i watched what felt like a dozen movies all day.

    lunch was chicken Chris fried on NYE.

    dinner was the last of the shrimp he steamed and a leftover potato.

    also went to the range (of which i am now a member, yay!) and blasted through a box of ammo in my favorite range pistol.

  3. Yesterday, my goal was just to survive the day. And I did! Baby steps.

  4. My first day of the year was spent sipping drinks, noshing on cheese, laughing with friends and watching tv. It was fabulous. Today, I didn't get out of bed until 1pm. I laid on the couch all afternoon and was supposed to go to a football watch party tonight which I'm not doing. Tomorrow I will be productive. Today was bliss. I think we all used to be able to do nothing without guilt. We used to be better at it. I think I'll try to work on that this year.

  5. the first day of the new year, my thoughts and deeds revolved around cleaning, the heavy duty kind. Cleaned the oven, washed the floor on my hands and knees, organized, talked on the phone for an hour to what I guess you'd name as my aunt, the widow of my mother's brother (he didn't have anything to do with my brother & me as kids, so I have a hard time viewing him as family...she, however, is really nice).

  6. Crying at Wal-Mart.
    Not kidding.
