Happy New Year!
2022 is starting off right! It's starting on a weekend. It'll end on a weekend. Everything between will be like a weekend for me, since I'll be working my usual nights-and-weekends job in place of my day job, and loving every minute of it. Don't quote me on that yet - let's give it a few months to become routine and see how I feel about it then.
Another plus - we're not starting the year with hangovers. Our local Sam's Club was out of Moet, so we took it as a sign we don't need it. I woke up at 3:30 a.m. on the 31st and couldn't get back to sleep, though, so the 2-liter of Mountain Dew came in handy! I don't usually do New Year's Resolutions, but I'm going to do my best to eat/drink less sugar in 2022, starting with no more Mountain Dew, already reserved for special occasions.
Another goal for 2022: I will only read books I already own. I say this every year, but this year, I have to stick with it since "disposable income" is a thing of the past. I have enough books in my Kindle backlog to complete at least 2 60-book challenges. The first deal I made with Lemur (my dude of 22 years) was no more buying books - I'll only grab them from BookBub when they're free.
On a fun note, we are starting the new year with an old game - Diablo II Resurrected. This was the game of my 20's, friends. We burned through 3-4 different PCs playing this game over the course of at least 5, if not 10, years. Playing it again on the X-Box is so weird, especially since I thought Diablo III was ... meh. So far, I've created a Paladin, a Barbarian, a Bowazon (Amazon with a bow) and a Spearazon (Amazon with a spear). Their names are Jeorth, Lazlo, Bertha, and Scylla. Before you mock me, Bertha was the name of my first Diablo II character in 1999, and is also the name of my car.
How are you feeling about 2022? I'd love to hear from you!
P.S.: In true romance author fashion, I did not talk about the elephant in the room/building/country/planet. COVID 19 is still here, and I don't see that changing for the first quarter of 2022. Get vaccinated and boosted, wear a better mask than mine, and stay safe out there.
