Though there were joy and happiness and glimpses of good fortune in it, 2014 was not one of my best years. I got divorced, and I moved out of a nice flat in town and was supposed to move into another flat in the countryside, but got stuck in limbo in my daughters guest room, where I still reside until somebody (anybody) comes and does what’s needed in the new flat. So far I’ve been waiting for 5 month.
It’s a nice guestroom, not too big, and with a door that comes in handy when the dogs want to visit me – they just bang their heads against it, and the door opens.
Living here I’ve once again realized that I’m not the minimalistic type. I like having my flowers and candles and knickknacks around me, plus my books and computers and everything else I might need all the sudden, and somehow that clashes with the 8-9 square meters I have to work with.
It also drives me crazy to know that all my furniture and everything else I own is standing in an unheated barn, molding away, while I’m waiting for Godot, instead of it coming to good use in my new flat with living room, bedroom, dining room, office, guestroom, bath, kitchen and pantry.
2014 was about waiting, and that was okay, but I think that 2015 has to be about doing, so I will give those handy men one more week to get here and do their work, and if they haven’t been here on Friday, I will have a serious talk with my landlord to hear, if he will let me do the work myself.
That’s my first new year’s resolution.
My second resolution is to get back to post on my blog every day.
I do write every day, but for the last two months or so, I’ve only added new blog posts 3 or 4 times a week. There is no excuse for it, maybe except that November and December were crazy work wise and that I chose to be with my family instead of sitting behind my computer during the holidays.
But – it’s a new year and a new start, and I can do it, so from now on you can expect one blog post a day from me.
My third and final new year’s resolution is to travel more and meet more people and to fill my life with happiness, and to get better at taking pictures and drawing. Okay, it sounds like many resolutions in one, but those things somehow belong together in my head and they would really make me happy.
What about you? Do you have any resolutions for 2015?
