Good evening kids. I hope your post Christmas day was filled with relaxation and enjoyment. We spent a quite day at home before venturing out to grab dinner at Outback. Apparently dozens upon dozens of people received Outback gift cards for Christmas because the wait time was 45-50 minutes. I was hungry so we took our chances and made our way to TGI Fridays instead. They had one table available and so we sat down right away to enjoy nice warm bowls of tortilla soup and boneless buffalo wings. Everything was tasty so I suppose it was a happy circumstance that we couldn’t get into Outback.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog and where I’m going to take it next year. I’ve decided that the 365 Days project will in fact end on December 31. I’ve also decided that my (mostly) daily posts will no longer be about me and how I’m doing. I’m going to go back to my first loves, politics, pop culture and commentary. Of course I’ll post updates when I have doctor appointments and the like but I’m going back to my first loves. Focusing so deeply on one’s self is harder than you imagine, or at least harder than I first imagined it would be. I wanted to be as honest as possible and I gotta tell you it’s eye opening to read back through the good, the bad, and the ugly.
This project has been a revelation and a Godsend and has most certainly helped me keep my sanity during this last year but it’s time to move on. God willing I’m on the mend and God willing my medical news will soon slow down. With the addition of today’s photo I will have taken 313 photos of myself over the course of 360 days. That means I posted photos 86.4% of this year. It’s not perfect but I’m pretty darn proud of sticking with this project. I’ve been more committed to this project and telling my story than I have any other blog project I’ve started.
In the coming days I’m going to publish a best of photos post and wrap up the year with a year end post on New Year’s Eve. Thank you for following me on this journey and I hope you’ll stick around to read me rant and rave about politics and offer snarky commentary about the reality (and scripted) TV programming that I love so much. I love you all. Thank you for being my faithful companions this year.
With Much Love & Great Affection,
~ Carol Anne
p.s. I promise less typos in the new year :-)
