More "less"

When I wasn't paying attention, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Year's came and went. I didn't make a list or count up all the cool things I had done all year long. I made some half-thought out "resoultions" which I don't know how resolved I'll be to accomplish. I mostly just slept a lot and not enough and then a lot and then not enough again, but that's nothing new. At all.

This time last year I was on day 2 of a cross-country road trip. Today, I'm still recovering from the flu, sleeping in the space in the bed that's between the pile of laundry at the end of the bed and the actual end of the bed, and dreading the shift change turn around. I'm going back on graveyards.

I want something new, something tangible, but not something I can crumple up on the bedroom floor. I want to be kind of, dare I say it, selfish. I want days off to paint the walls and take pictures. I want to go to Starbucks with a laptop and drink to many lattes. I want to sit in my backyard and edit pictures until my fingers are sore. I want to redo the entire house.

Or...I want to do nothing, despite what everyone else says. I'm proposing a year of trying to do more "less".
