On resolutions and such

I normally don’t make resolutions for the new year. If I don’t successfully complete them, it just seems like I’m setting myself up for failure. Also, I think maybe the last time I made a resolution it was to eat less Taco Bell. This was most likely circa 15 years ago.

I still like Taco Bell, but times have changed. So this year, I’m opting to start blogging again. In 2013 I started a new job while continuing to work for my old employer during weeknights and weekends. I continued to volunteer with One Tail at a Time and joined their Board of Directors. Something had to give. So yesterday when I recycled my old planner and opened my new one (yes, I’m still someone who pencils tasks in a weekly planner and not into my iPhone), I decided my 2014 goal would be to write down and share my adventures here in this space once again.

Just over a week ago, I had to say goodbye to one of my oldest pals, the pup I grew up with. Frasier would have been 15 today, and while I know it was his time to go, it was a traumatic and heartbreaking experience that I still can’t stop thinking about. So dear pal, 2014 is for writing things down more. Because sometimes you have to say good-bye.

    I’m very sorry to learn about Frasier. I hope you’re able to take comfort in the fact that he had a wonderful life, knowing how he was loved and cared for.- Dan

    Sorry about Frasier :-/

    It’s awesome that you joined OTAT’s board…they’re the best. You should add “Go to Garifuna w/ David & Marissa” to your resolution. Or at least “Go to brunch w/ them”.

  3. What a great picture to remember my best bud by. Happy Birthday Frasier! I miss you every day!

  4. Ok, yes let’s set a date!! How about brunch on Sunday, the 19th?

  5. I’m so sorry to hear about Frasier…
