Getting Started on My New Year Resolution

I’m not really one to make new year’s resolutions but this year I have said I want to write more consistently and also to add to the blogs I now follow.

So, how am I doing?  Well- it’s is now the 4th of the month and I am just now starting to write again.  Funny how our best intentions can get sidetracked by life itself.

Today I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon (going to have to have a knee replaced).  The doctor’s office is in the state capital about 20 miles from our home.  Since we are new to the state, we got up very early to give ourselves time to find the office.

My husband went out to warm up the car and found we had a flat tire.  By the time we got it fixed it was too late to keep my appointment.

But God is good – our insurance covered the cost of getting the tire changed so my husband could drive it to a repair shop.  They found a screw in the tire, fixed it and aired up all the tires.  When my husband asked what the charge was, the owner said “Just buy your tires from me when you need new ones.”

The surgeon’s office has a policy of charging a $50 fee if you do not give 24 hours notice for cancelling.  But they were understanding and did not charge me for the cancellation.  Finally, I was afraid I would have to wait several weeks to get a new appointment, but I’m scheduled for next Friday.

This is good because I have had to really talk myself into making this appointment.  I had one knee replaced 3 1/2 years ago and have had nothing but problems since.  That plus the fact that it is the most painful thing I have ever experienced, I have put off this day as long as I can.  Now my courage needs to be built up again this week to keep that appointment next week.

So – reading new writers will give me something to keep my mind occupied and I’m sure I will find some new blogs to follow.  Several ideas are going through my mind and I hope to start actually writing them tomorrow.

In the meantime, I would like to share four blogs that I have been following closely the last few months.  They are great writers and I recommend you take a look.

  1. So sorry things were a little trying today but as usual we see that God was in control and met your needs. I will be praying that this knee replacement will go much smoother than the last one.

  3. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and resolution. I’ve been writing consistently for several years now. For me it is best to just write something, anything, every day. The fundamental activity helps keep my writing fresh and I never seem to get writer’s block. Give it a try is you aren’t already doing so.
