My plan for tomorrow includes some grocery shopping, attempting to fix Nick's xbox and sleeping until I am ready to get up and get moving. I get so little sleep (thanks insomnia!) that when I can sleep, I try to get as much as my body will take at any one time.
I skipped the making of New Year's resolutions this year. This is the first year in many that I didn't write down a bunch of resolutions that I then promptly broke by 12:02 am on January 2nd. I thought about making them what with old habits dying hard and such nonsense but in the end, I decided that maybe this is the year that I should just go with the flow and let things happen like they are going to happen. Of course, there are things I am subconsciously doing to improve situations that I don't like around me and within me but not having this piece of paper say it must be an absolute is a gloriously freeing thing.
I proclaimed 2013 the Year of Marie. I am on a new medicine for anxiety issues and I have made it a point to try to eat as well as possible (though I still don't eat nearly enough) and I haven't been letting little things stress me to the point of the collapse. I still don't sleep enough but I think that will come with time. I go through these phases. This is just one of the sleepless ones. I make sure to take my medicine every day somewhere around the 8:30 time period, morning and evening and this schedule is working out well for me.
I created a new page with the hopes of keeping track of all the books I read in 2013. It is something I have long wanted to do and so I decided that this was a good time to do it. I don't get to read nearly as often as I would like. You would assume that with all the down time I have at work, I would be able to read books quickly but reading at work is like reading in a car. Plenty of interruptions and having to go reread the same page 4 times because you lose your place every time you get started.
Speaking of work, I still love my job. There are a few changes I would like to make in how things are done around here because some of it drives me crazy with the inefficiency of things but I am implementing them slowly because change is hard particularly when you work with people who are all so set in their ways. It is more a minor annoyance than anything.
And having written all that I wrote, I am going to run along until the next time I think of something to say. Or get irritated and need to vent. Whichever comes first.

On the last day of 2012, I did something that, for me, was very brave.
I vow, in 2013, to not regret the brave thing I did in the waning hours of 2012 & to be happy.
There are many changes that will take place this year. Most all of them are good. I am looking forward.
It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
