No I haven’t lost my mind (it was already gone before I started this post).
Now that the holidays are officially over (I’m not undermining New Years, I just consider it to be a 2011 event) I’ve started to settle into the way of the world.
Now I’m getting back to life, getting back to writing, getting back to avidly blogging. It feels right, so normal, so… so… so good.
With getting back into writing I’ve come across the realization that things change, people have new agendas, new plans.
Here’s what I’ve noticed:
1. New Year’s Resolutions are being planned (what’s yours?)
Christmas drinks are being forgotten (see ya next year apple cider, hot cocoa, pumpkin spice latte)
2. The nice is wearing off (that’s right, holiday cheer is past due)
Greediness comes on stronger (returning gifts can get ugly. I prefer to keep my gifts in hopes to one day love it, all to avoid the crowd)
3. Stores are emptying (Unless you have a gift card the hustle and bustle starts to die down from the last minute items needed for the holidays)
4. Gift wrapping no longer available (what about birthdays?)
What have you noticed? Give you something to write about? I know I have a ton of fresh new ideas flowing!
