It's been one week since my last confession. Christmas has come and gone. So has Festivus and Boxing Day. Of course the last two aren't on my radar for celebrating but I really feel like Christmas passed me by this year. Thanksgiving too. Illness visited me for not just one but both holidays. I did get out to a couple of holiday events but really overdid it at both. I was back at work today but I confess I'm still not 100%. Do I dare hold out hope of feeling well for New Years?
I confess that today I started thinking about a Subway meatball sandwich as early as 1 p.m. (my lunch salad just settling in my stomach) By 4 p.m. I called my wife at work and asked her if she'd like to stop at Subway on the way home for dinner. I'm not a big Subway fan so this probably came as a shock to her. She was up for it so we did. It was ummmm - good!
The Iowa caucuses are one week away and while I've been following closely I admit it seems so totally foreign because it is all about the GOP. Iowa is a neighboring state and there are many times I've joined others who have migrated to the state to campaign for candidates in advance of the caucuses. Each of these have been for democratic candidates and so I confess that thinking of Iowa void of early Democratic battles is surreal.
I confess that after paying 2.85 recently for gas my stomach did not make it's traditional growling sound. I have no delusions of it lasting.
Yes, it's Resolutions time again. Will I have some? I confess I'm split over it even as the year is ticking away. I will settle on an answer by New Years and let you know.
May the rest of your 2011 keep you safe and see you into the New Year!
