It’s the last day of 2010 and it was quite a year. Lots of changes – some good, some bad – so it’s fitting that I end the year with a change itself. This New Year’s Eve is definitely NOT like the others.
Most single people are hitting up bars or house parties. If couples aren’t doing the same, they’re retreating somewhere cozy with other couples or enjoying the company of one another. I’m doing none of that and couldn’t be happier. Today, I’m spending New Year’s Eve with Meem.
If you’re not fortunate enough to know Meem, she’s my mother’s mother. The “G” word is strictly forbidden. She’s a crazy character, a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to crushing a few bottles of wine and klonopin and feelings of weakness laughing it up with her and possibly my uncles depending on their plans. I don’t make time to see them nearly enough so tonight will be a welcome change of pace.
One thing I have never been good at is balance. I easily get focused on something, like work or a relationship, and zone everything else out. Making time for everything and everyone is definitely a goal for 2011 and finding that perfect balance is a never-ending pursuit that, until now, hasn’t evaded me as much as been ignored by me.
Just wanted to take a second to say Happy New Year’s and I hope – whatever you’re doing – you’re enjoying yourselves. I’m sure I’ll be chiming in tomorrow with my goals for 2011 so stay tuned!
