I’m late for Melanie’s Share Your World prompt this week because I had surgery on Monday and was not feeling so great through New Year’s Day. But I’m doing a little better now, so I thought I’d go for it even though I’m late. So here we go.
What was the single best thing that happened in your life this past year?
My son got married and he and his wife are expecting a baby — my first grandchild.
The most challenging?
Finding out that I had a mass growing in my left middle ear and that it was causing me to lose my hearing in that ear and that I’d need to have surgery.
One thing you learned in 2019?
That Mitch McConnell and most Republican members of Congress are spineless scumbags. Okay, I already knew that, but it was made even more evident in 2019.
Given all your experiences, insights, and lessons learned in 2019, what’s the best advice you could give yourself for 2020?
Stop watching so much cable news.
What’s the best meal/food you ate in 2019?
When I had a bushel of fresh Maryland jumbo blue crabs shipped overnight to my home in San Francisco last summer.
What are three activities you plan to use in the coming year to relieve stress?
1. Stop watching so much cable news.
2. Walk at least 10,000 steps a day.
3. Continue to blog because it lets me vent my frustrations, which reduces my stress levels.
Any resolutions you’d care to share?
Only one: Stop watching so much cable news.
