At this time of year, most blogs have been about the goals or resolutions people have made for the coming year. My goal is to stay sane. Seriously! After running around to appointments with Alzheimers’ counsellors and Community Access contacts, geriatric psychiatrists, lawyers, accountants, not to mention the numerous phone calls from my mother (who hadn’t spoken to me in seven years and is now calling a minimum of three times a day for ninety minutes a time) as she begs me to help her make life-altering decisions for my father, and daily calls from my sister (we would contact each other maybe once a month to keep in touch), I’m at the stage where I don’t remember November or December.

Anyway, I thought I’d leave you with another thing I grew up with – and it’s amazing how much of these songs come back to you after all these years. See if you don’t start singing along with it …

    TRy to take it one day at a time and remember to take a breath. If you ever want to gab you know I’m here.

    I do understand how the writing thing keeps you going and sane. It is the best way to block out everything and focus on what makes you happy.

    I hope your 2008 is filled with PEACE. And contracts (that goes without saying!)

    Thanks for the flash from the past. You know I was singing along. I didn’t even know I knew the lyrics, but the old brain kicked in and voila! It all came back…

    I hear ya girl. Sanity is all wrapped up in a word document for most writers.

    Keep trudging uphill. The top view is wonderful 🙂
