Holiday and Year End Wrap Up

I’ve been absolutely terrible about posting. I’ve got a backlog of things I’ve been meaning to post. It’s that much easier to toss things up on the ‘gram and keep it moving though. But even there I’m seeing my impressions and interactions drop. It doesn’t make me want to post that much either. Especially when I see pages that have so few posts, but have 1k plus followers and upwards of 800 likes for stupid pictures. Granted, I’m still doing this for me and for fun, but…. it’s becoming less fun. I’m outchea competing with Instacookie cutters for likes, for what? I’m gonna always be me and I’m not changing that. 🤷🏻‍♀️

The holidays were all a blur. Thanksgiving and Christmas just seemed to run right into each other. It reminds me of someone’s Twitter or Facebook post.. we just saw each other a month ago and did the whole shebang, do we need to do it all again so soon? Can I get a few months? It’s just so busy. This year was the first year I did anything for Christmas in awhile. I (sort of) got into the holiday spirit and put up my scraggly tree. I put up stockings.. LOL and that was already too much work. I give props to everyone who really does it up for the holiday decorating. Because I can’t. I don’t even have the proper vision for it. Don’t worry it wasn’t a complete bahumbug for me. I got to see my family and spend quality time, laughing and reliving the memories. We didn’t do many gifts this year, but I’m ok with that. I’ve got to save up for my next round of trips and there will be lots of staycations in 2019.

2018 has been.. interesting to say the least. Doors were closed, others thrown wide open. It was definitely a rocky start to the beginning and started to turn around at the halfway mark. In the last quarter it definitely started to look up. I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m better. I’m getting the hang of this being happy thing. For those of you that have commented on that - you’re absolutely right. I’m happier now than I’ve been in the past few years. When it’s a little more established I’ll let y’all in on that.

Here’s to an awesome, kick ass 2019! Bring on the blessings.
