It was an offbeat New Year’s Day. Ponczka likes to treat the day according to the superstition that it will become a blueprint for the year to come. Which means she likes to get a few things done: to paint a little, do something constructive around the house, fit in some self-care, attend to friends and family, have some fun, things like that. Over the years, I've taken up this attitude myself.
But today didn’t go exactly according to plan. First of all, we slept in, after being out partying until three. By late afternoon, it was pretty clear we just weren’t going to have the championship day we’d hoped to. Wasn’t a bad day, just not very accomplished. We ate too much, lounged about, went out and spent too much money, and pretty much ignored productive activity.
So, what’s that say about our upcoming year? That 2011 is bound to be a disaster! If we choose to believe in such omens. Which we don’t. Except that...well, I did make sure I got this post in.
Some possibilties are not to be trifled with!
