i didn't really make any resolutions this year. ok, that's not entirely true, i'd like to learn how to back into a parking space. but that's more like basic necessity, not a resolution, right? mostly i'm just glad that 2013 is here. the tail end of 2012 wasn't so hot for me. actually it was downright terrible. more than anything i was worried that the terrible was going to follow me right on into this year. but it didn't, thank goodness. because of that, this year seems so shiny and new with possibility. i really think it's going to be a good one. when i read this later, i'll need to remind myself that we've been having unseasonably warm days here and that we took advantage of it and spent our first beach day of 2013. it was quiet and uncrowded, just the way we like it. oh and blouses. i'm going to try to buy more blouses. maybe not blouses exactly, but shirts that are not tshirts. you know? because this year i'm hitting my, ahem, late 30's stride. 2013 people!! what about you?
