All in all a decent year. Nothing remarkable, but not one I’d dust away never to be thought of again. I’d consider this year a moderate one thus far in the life of this Singleton.
Started off a bit rocky with hysteria stewing over my aging self but ever so slowly improved with dreams of home purchasing, DIYing and dating. OK, so things weren’t that hysterical, but age is always on the forefront of my mind as I fear features such as crows feat, saggy boobs, etc.
Well, the dating thing. Errrr, ahhh, ummmm, well that wasn’t exactly one for the books. Being Houdini'd mid-date with the tab and stood up wasn’t exactly one of those moments I was most proud of, but I mustered through with self pride in hand. There was the time I never heard back from $28 Worth. Door shut, locked and key thrown away never to be found again. It left me feeling like I did something wrong and only after weeks of self destruction, I realized it was his loss not mine. And I can’t leave out all the random creepers online who reached out their hands with offerings of truck shows, shooting ranges and pig skinning.
I’m still in search of my Penguin and I won’t give up. Or maybe I should focus on my Seahorse as they mate for life too.
So as I close down this chapter called 2011, I approach the new year with open eyes and an acceptance that this is a beautiful life and one I don’t want to pass me up without me being in the drivers seat. Zoom on.
What are your New Year’s Plans?
As for Me, Myself and I? I have a date with my Pizza Delivery Guy, Ben & Jerry and The Pilsbury Dough Boy. I'm cheating on all of them.
Truthfully, I am trading those three charmers in for a night full of gluttony and waistline punishment munching on unhealthy foods, sipping red wine and toasting a bit of the expensive bubbly with a whole bunch of my awesome friends at midnight. What a better way to welcome in 2012?
