My goodness, but I certainly know how to drag things out, huh?
This year has been a good one for our family. My husband went into remission and has stayed there. My son Sawyer has gotten 100% better now that he’s got the right meds and he’s coming into the downward side of puberty. My daughter Clem left for college. I miss her very much but she is having a ball and getting good grades and generally being a great kid so I cannot complain. The other kids are doing well in their areas as well. I have nothing to complain about.
…Well, except for the Republicans, but hey, what can you do? They’re always gonna be there.
I have wanted to post so many times this year, but something always held me back. When you blog it feels like you are keeping a journal, but it’s not. It’s a diary read by others, and not always the others you’d choose to share your thoughts and opinions with. I love to write, but I have no desire to be a mommy blogger. I have nothing against mommy bloggers–I read a slew of mommy blogs and like them. But it’s just not me. I don’t want to share my kids names or pictures. So that’s out. I could blog about cartooning, except I’ve kind of given that up for Lent. So that’s out as well. I could blog about politics because I LOVE me some politics, and maybe I will someday. But that day is not today. Today, I can think of nothing that I am willing to share that would possibly keep anyone interested, so I am shutting this blog down.
Maybe not forever–who knows. But my plan is to start the new year fresh. I really felt like I needed to get this batch of cartoons done today–before the new year. I felt like God was clearly telling me to give Clear Blue Water up. It’s time had passed. Stop dragging it out and be done with it. He has something fresh and new for me in the new year. And I am all about fresh and new right now!
I only regret that I won’t be cartooning during the election. I adored doing it during the last two. It was my favorite time as a cartoonist.
I have thought of some stuff to share!
1. I fear the Republicans might win the next election. Well, that’s not true. I think President Obama will probably win, as he SHOULD, but what if the unthinkable happens and Newt or one of the other chickenheads the Republicans are running suddenly becomes president? Dear God, help us. Romney is the best of that bunch and that is sad. SAD. But they don’t seem to like him that much–they seem attracted to the crazy. I can understand that, there is a certain allure to the crazy, as I can attest, but I don’t think we want “the crazy” in a President. Huh? At least I don’t.
2. If you pray (and I hope you do) please pray for Joshua. He is five years old and he is dying. Long ago I was friendly with his mama and his family–If you’ve read my blog at all then you know who I am talking about. The whole family is going through some tough times right now, and they could use your prayers.
And 3. Last but not least, I read an article that said that if you make 2.5 million dollars and invest it correctly, then you can live on the interest forever (at just over $100,000 a year) and not touch the principal. I have no idea if this is true, but I have latched onto it. So my new years resolution is to make 5 million dollars by June. Heck, the tax man will want his share, and I always WAS an overachiever…
Now. How to do it, how to do it… Hmmmm….
Cheers to you, my friends. May we all be 5 million dollars richer at the end of 2012!!!!
