Blogging Fail

Well, . . . in 2014, I told myself that I was definitely  going to post more on my blog . . . and I didn't.  I used to put something up on the blog almost every day.

I have not given up on my dear blog, but I certainly suck at posting regularly.

I've had a very mixed year.  I've had some wonderful high points and with one or two sucky low points.

Let's see if I can put this right.

I predict 2015 will be the year of the "do over"

I already know that I will be trying to lose weight.  After losing my job in June - I know, I never said a word on here!  The weight has started creeping up again.  It got worse in October when returning from a trip to visit my son in Chicago, I found that my dog, Polly was lame.  She has surgery scheduled for the 15th of January and is not to go on any walks until after she has healed.  This means that since October,  I have gone on far fewer walks.  I guess I knew that me walking the dog was good in theory, but I actually got more benefit from it than I realised.  Since I can't walk my dog, I've put on loads of weight.  I needed those daily walks as much, if not more than she did.

So, goals for the upcoming year are:  Have a better vegetable garden.  I was given a Rotavator for Christmas to help with this.  That will help with the bulk of the heavy digging.

Get a new job.  It would be nice to have a job that I like and does not cause me quite so much anxiety.

Get back in shape

Post in the blog more

Let's see how we get on then.  :-)

I hope you have a safe and sanitary New Year.  I am probably going to ring in the new year at about 10:30 in my pajamas.

Happy New Year. I haven't been attending to my blog very much in the last year, either. I don't really want to give it up, but can't seem to think of anything to say, either. I'll try to do better, but that's NOT a New Year's Resolution. lol

I hope 2015 will be a good year for you.

I do love your blog. It's packed full of information and interesting tidbits that otherwise would never come our way. Maybe it's the Facebook effect? Either way, 2015 will be great. Full of it's own adventures. You can walk your own fine self. Polly can catch up when she's healthier.

Thanks Betty and Sal.

I know perfectly well that I can walk by myself until Polly is better. However, if you have a companion that you have walked with every day for nine years and then your companion gets hurt and can't walk, would you still go out and leaving your companion behind? I have walked a couple of times, but it just isn't the same.
