Seems Like Old Times.

You can see the big image here.


I don't do New Year's resolutions. I might have in the past, in fact, I'm sure I did at some point in life. Somewhere along the way, I dropped that tradition. Probably wasn't making much headway in whatever I had resolved to do.

And I don't make those lists of things I did in the past, either. I can hardly remember what I did last week, let alone try to scratch out what I was doing a year ago, or heaven help me, a decade ago (this being a more pivotal, albeit still arbitrary date, people really seem to be taking this whole decade thing to heart).

I just figure if I'm going to do something, for good or bad, I'll just do it when I decide to do it. That keeps it pretty simple for me.

That being said, I wanted to give a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who responded via email or on the blog about helping HAMO and the Diapers for Everyone 2010 Diaper Drive. I have to say I'm a little behind in getting back to you all who volunteered to donate or help in some way, but know your offers are duly noted... and you'll be contacted soon.

I guess I do have a sort of resolution process. It's called Looking Forward to Good Things. Some of those things, like the Diaper Drive and working with HAMO, I know about. The rest: I'll just have to wait to be surprised!

Wishing you the best kind of New Year's Eve in whatever manner you choose to celebrate it. And mostly, a year full of Looking Forward to Good (Surprise) Things.

Hey Julie - I'll be joining the HAMO in some way - working on how and what that will look like from my side of the bay.

Goodness, Julie, at 65, I can't tell you the number of resolutions I have made and broken. So I don't continue them any more. I have resolved only to try to keep breathing and to live each day as best I can. That's positively enough to tackle.

You are such a good soul, in a young body and have my utmost admiration. Kudos to you from an old gal. I love that you have taken on the diapers project and feel empathy for the homeless and victims of domestic violence.

Blessings in the new year and for eternity.
