Buh Bye 2019

It's the last day of the year 2019.  I know, duh, right?  I have a flair for stating the obvious.  Personally, I'm glad to see the back end of 2019.  It was not a good year.


But it wasn't exactly a bad year either.  I mean, everyone I love is still hanging in there and none of them were smushed or anything.  I still have a roof over my head, food to eat, and books to read.  I'm still hale and hardy.  The cars still run.  And so do all the major appliances.  I still love Hubs and he still loves me and our marriage is still strong.  Life is good.

It's all a matter of perspective, I guess.  And it's all about the choices we make. 

I could choose to focus on the negatives.  Lord knows, there are enough of them out there.  I don't want to do that.  I'd rather 2019 just bow out gracefully while I look forward to a better 2020.  Wrap everything up with twine, shove it into a big box, and put it in a corner somewhere never to be opened again.

Oh, there will still be some leftover stuff, so I can't entirely forget 2019.  There'll be a couple of wrap-up posts later this week.  Incoming spreadsheets for the final sales of the month at work will keep arriving until sometime in February, like they always do.  And there are income taxes to deal with in March or April.  :shudder:   But we'll let those things fall as they may. 

Bring on...
Let's make of it what we can, eh?

Here's to a better 2020 for us all, with more successes and happiness and amazing things.  Sound good to you?  Sounds good to me.


  1. Totally happy to close the door on the old year and greet the new one with an open mind and the idea of embracing new possibilities. Happy New Year, my friend! Here's wishing you all good and awesome things in the coming year!!! πŸ’•πŸΎπŸŽ‰
