Swimming with Zombies

The truth of it is that we never really know what sort of curve ball life's going to throw our way, do we? We can prepare, plan and prognosticate until you-know-where freezes over but it's pretty much a waste of energy. Plans are shattered. Preparations disposable. Prognostications fly like leaves in a stiff breeze.

I know it's early but I'm making a resolution. You know, the kind that comes with the beginning of a new year. But...earlier.

No planning for me. Not now. Not for a while.

Instead, I'm taking it as it comes. Just going with the flow, dealing with whatever life sends my way. Actually, that's exactly what I've been doing for the past couple of years. The only thing is that at this point I'm hoping (not planning, mind you!) for some fun, happy stuff to find me. Yeah, it's time.

Thanksgiving? Tough. But I'm past it now, feeling good and exploring new options. Options, you ask? That's right. Options.

Like, you know, zombies. Really, I'm writing something that keeps me smiling. And I've been plotting the story while I've been floating in the hot tub.

So, swimming with the zombies here.

What about you? What's going on in your backyard?

I'm proud of you. This is hard but you are staying strong.

Your zombies sound fascinating!!! Tell us more!!

And here I thought zombies didn't swim. :)

Thanksgiving has come and gone and you're still okay. It's just one day at a time. I have faith in you. You're one of the strongest women I know.

So good to hear you survived the holiday. Take a deep breath sweetie and hang on. You will be okay. I believe in you.

Not much new here. Sick kids. Just sniffles but they are so whiney!!

Sending big hugs!!!

I hate blogger. HATE. I had this beautiful comment and once again I forgot to copy it before I hit post. And got a blogger error.

Let me just ditto Maria -- I'm too tired to try writing the rest: you are truly one of the strongest women I know. (((hugs)))

You can do it and I'll echo everyone else by saying you're truly one of the strongest women I know.
