Blog, Blog, Blog

I was surprised today when one of our staff members said they still had Christmas decorations up, including the tree!  I said, “You have to be kidding me, it’s January 4, 2013.”

Each year on January 1, I pack up all remnants of Christmas, pile them in large plastic bins, and store them away. The last act of all is dragging our live Christmas tree out to the curb for pick up. And despite my efforts and vacuuming, I know I will still be finding tree needles come July 4th.

With Christmas boxed and hidden under the hallway steps, I turn my attention to the New Year. There is always something special about a new year...another chance to do those things we neglected to do in the year before, or started but never finished.

My thing is blogging! It has been ages since I last blogged any of my thoughts or musings. This year will be different. Our new Director of Communication, “JJ” is keen on blogging. She says it is a MUST in today’s world of technology. In other words, she is going to keep me honest and push me to blog.

So keep an eye open, 2013 is the year of the blog for me. I plan to have a new one each week, and would love your input! So send me your comments and suggestions for blog posts in this New Year. I really do enjoy hearing from you.

Thought for the day from Maya Angelou – “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I hope my blogs will make you think and of course,  smile.   Happy New Year!


  1. She is not alone, I still have my tree and decorations up!

  2. I thought the rule was "they stay up until Epiphany".

    We will look forward to your thoughts on the Blog. And it's good to see our new employee already having some influence.
