City & State or ZIP

First time for everything

One of my favorite things about the beginning of a new year is that you feel as if you can “clean slate” a lot of things in your life. Somehow we get the idea that new opportunities come at the start of a new year. I think this is true but I don’t feel as if January is the only month to switch things up!

Whether it is our professional or personal life, a lot of us are adverse to change. I am definitely a creature of habit, but I am anxious to try something out and explore..new.

I have been talking about taking up photography, skydiving, and traveling to Paris. I am not sure if I will do any of these things this year but I certainly will try my best.

What is something you have always wanted to try? What do you think the new year has in store for you?

Do you ever feel as if you are too cautious and careful? Have you ever tried something new in dating? How did it work and would you try it again?

Thanks dyslexi….I first have to find somebody to do it with me. I need the moral support, don’t need a stranger pushing me off that ledge.

Leggs – oh, if only Mr. Budget would allow….plus…I’m thinking that by the time our budget evens out, it will be warm again and I will sign on then. Because I am really not going to zipline in the cold.

Oh…and on another note, don’t ya’ hate receiving gift that AS SOON AS you open it….your first thought is “RE-GIFTING!” (lol)

Regifting as soon as you open??? LOLOL

Or folks’ that really could stand getting xxx’ed altogether from my list. Only because of a service she provides am I gifting her as a token of my appreciation. One wrong move from her between today and stores closing tomorrow and I’m regifting to myself or returning.

Leggs – We can all do it together. Who knows? Maybe by the time it warms up enough to go, we will have roped some other folks into going with us.

Sounds like a great plan, SexyC.

I have regifted a gift a time or two.

I’ve got a couple of designer boxes that I’ve kept for a couple of years now simply because they’re beautiful. I’ve been tempted a couple of times to recycle as “gift boxes” but I always wonder if they’ll know or even care?? So the boxes remain with me.

@LOLOLOL ~ her service deserves a gift so give her a gift. Trust, she’s expecting a gift and won’t be making a wrong move until Christmas has passed (LOLOLOL)

I use to frown on regifting but really if it’s going to go to waste unused, why not pass along. One person trash is often another person’s treasure. Someone else could very well like.

At least you’re passing on as new. My mother, bless her heart, in her “state” tries to recard folks with cards ADDRESSED TO HER. LOL We have to know put all “used” cards and envelopes away.

In fact, if you’re gonna give me some bllsht, last minute, picked up on the way to the register foolishness, save ya’ damn money and don’t get me sht. I’m good…really.

The longer I look at the “gift”, the more I realize that I cannot seriously re-gift it. It is good as a gag gift only.

And with that, I am going to take my abundance of Christmas spirit over to Camp Creek Marketplace to buy the ONE gift that I have to buy for the entire season. (lol)

@LOLOLOL ~ funny you said the middle finga cuz I was thinking about telling them to look at their hand and put all fingers down except the middle one…you read my mind, LOLOLOL

To think someone gave to you as a real gift. That should be indicative of it’s worth if it can only pass for a gag gift. Um, I don’t think it was wrong to toss the regift idea around. As a matter of fact, I think it’s more commendable to not wish that upon the next person…seeing it can only pass as a gag. That’s the Christmas spirit.

@Leggs, Glad to know I’m not alone. People just slay me sometimes. But no, I’m in a grand mood and I will not let some LOSER bring my spirit down…not from a blog anyway…LOL

And I really did appreciate the thought. I just look at the gift – a jewelry set – and wonder, “How did they see ME in this?” (lol)
