So, Now What?

I never dreamed Penelope Cruz would visit my blog!!!;)

Happy New Year my friends! I hope this finds you safe in the comforts of home, and not locked in a jail cell all hungover with your butt-hole throbbing. I spent the biggest party night of the year at work, So, I’m glad to say that I am writing this from the comforts of home. (So why is MY butt-hole throbbing?)

I know I’ve been slacking lately. A puzzling loss of direction mixed with the 80 hour work week has put a damper on my play time here. No excuses, just sayin’… Now that I’ve finished Jake 365, I’m kind of at a loss on which way this crazy thing is supposed to go? My winter project is to work on Jake’s book. Other than seeing some stats on here, I have no real idea if people actually read what I’m posting? I started this thinking the site would become a discussion board. But so far, most of the action’s on Facebook. I guess I’m at a crossroads? 
This has become such a fun, therapeutic habit for me that I can’t see NOT doing it anymore. This may just be the perfect chance to take this site to a new level? I have been so focused on talking about Jake and my experiences, that I’ve gotten away from keeping this about the parents and the funny business we deal with everyday! 
When people ask, “what’s your New Year’s resolution?”, I don’t really answer. Why make a one time promise to yourself to try and achieve some goal that you only half-heartedly came up with in the first place, and have no real intention of committing to? In the movie Vanilla Sky, Penelope Cruz summed up what I’m trying to say in one simple sentence. “Every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around.” I love that quote. To me, it says every day can be your New Years Eve. You can set new goals for yourself every single day. Make them attainable, with the seemingly unattainable as your reward. “Keep your eye on the prize” as they say. Whoever “they” is…

Where do I go from here? I’m not sure yet. But I’m NOT quitting. Thanks again Penelope. Your words of wisdom have saved me many times;)

Thank you for spending most of 2011 with me. I wish nothing but a healthy, prosperous 2012 for you and everyone you love!

  1. Being a single mom, it's nice just to see the dad side of things some times. I say just keep doing it the way you have been as you can. You can think of it as an awesome journal you're keeping for your son (when he's old enough, of course!). He'll be able to look back at his first years of life, see how much he was loved, and get to know you as a person in the process. Just my 2 cents 🙂
