Here’s to 2016

My New Year’s Resolution last year was to MAIL CARDS.
I can honestly say, with about 96% certainty, that I SUCCEEDED.

I’m so proud of the number of cards I sent… I had a list somewhere, and now I can’t find it.
I think it was almost 50 cards! (I missed a cousin at the very end of the year, and I kind of felt bad about that.)
Many people told me how thrilled they were to receive a card out of the blue… some didn’t acknowledge at all… and  a couple of friends sent ME cards on MY birthday. Yay.

This year I didn’t make a new year’s resolution – I thought about it… and thought about resuming sending cards… but in the end, I didn’t. So there – no cards for you, this year. Maybe next year….

My 20-year high school reunion is this year…
I went to my 10, and expected so much more. Unfortunately, I was let down – everyone was just the same. I don’t know what I expected – maybe that we had all ‘grown-up’ and moved on. I know I changed – moved away, came out of my shell, branched out…
I guess when you go to school in a small town – a lot of people stick around, still run with the high school crowd, marry their prom date… and raise their babies together. And I didn’t. (Thank goodness)
But I didn’t fit in then… I didn’t fit in 10 years ago… and I bet I won’t fit in now. I’m okay with that – I’m not likely to join those guys for the 2016 reunion, and life will go on. They won’t miss me, and I won’t miss them.
The only link we have these days is Facebook, and I’ve thought about dumping that high-school chapter altogether anyway to clean up my wall. We’ll see – might make a good new year’s resolution.
