• Fingers are tired

    Just one last little update before the A-2-Z Challenge begins April 1st.

    Oh my!

    I have been busy typing and typing, and editing, and typing, and reviewing, and editing and typing some more.  I think I have reach the point I could recite some of these posts from memory.  I might have become a bit obsessive!  I have written all but 2 posts.  I am still struggling with the letter V, and I have my topic for W, but haven't written it yet.

    I got past some really hard letters like U, X and Z!  I feel pretty cocky about that!! 😂. Okay - Z was a bit of a stretch (and so was X) - tying it in with my theme, but I think it works, and my Z is actually a cute way to end the whole event.  I won't share what I did.  You will have to check in on the last day in April to find out.

    One thing I discovered ... writing on a single topic or theme, like this challenge is designed for - it does help you crystalize some of your thoughts.  Since my theme is Aging and Retirement - I thought this would be a slam dunk.  No problem.  Whip those little buggers out with no problem.

    Well - I discovered differently.

    Much of what I had to say was based on my experiences caring for my mom through her aging and eventual death.  I haven't thought about all of that since 2014.  It stirred up a bunch of old memories.  Many of them were good memories but there were a few sad ones as well.  My (strong) opinions about the elderly were formed during that 8 year period.  And my attitudes about certain topics will come across maybe a bit strong maybe.

    So ... yes ... 
    I will probably come across like an opinionated old person with an attitude!!  
    Oh well.  So be it. It is who I am now.  
    No escaping it!  

    Just 2 more posts to 'launch' and I am done until May 1st!!  

    Celebration Time!!!
