last night’s festivities ended [for me, and annabel] at approximately 9 pm, and therefore i think i started 2014 the most rested of any january 1st since . . . well, maybe ever.
and today i woke up excited to put some of my shiny new january goals into action. i think my first act of the day was — drumroll — deleting the facebook app from my phone. if i decide come february that i really missed it, i’ll bring it back. [and i’m still planning to check in from my computer of course — this will just help me eliminate that mindless faux-connectedness that random frequent check-ins tends to bring].
YES. onward to more patience, less distraction, and more deliberate pursuits. such as the book i’m about to read [for 5 minutes] followed by the nap i’m inevitably going try to take.*
* more outdoor time at our local playground:
PS: i haven’t forgotten about the monthly donations —
late this fall, i started donating all monthly earnings from this blog to different worthy causes [here’s november and december]. this month’s recipient to be announced tomorrow.
* subject to pager/phone call interruptions, as i’m on call, but i am feeling zen about it and remain open to whatever comes. the end.
