2012 was a better year for Linda Root, Indie Writer, than for Linda Root, a senior citizen in denial.
Combining the two, I have arrived at some resolutions for 2013 that may also apply to others.
Resolution #1. RESOLVED: I WILL NOT BUY ANY CLOTHES I CANNOT WEAR TO CLEAN THE DOG YARD:
NEVER buy great new rags to wear to a social event if you are over 65. If you do, the Fates will punish you for your vanity. You or your travel partner will get sick for sure, and you will end up selling the new threads on Ebay. Example: I bought a great dress especially for son Michael and wife Christina's German replay of their 2009 wedding which I has performed here in California. I knew better. No sooner had I lost the weight to squeeze into it than my husband's health went south. I sold the dress on Ebay but it was returned because the buyer said it smelled like mothballs. Now it hangs in my closet to ward off moths.
Resolution#2. RESOLVED; I will always purchase trip insurance. Refer to explanation accompanying Resolution #1 above.
Resolution#3. RESOLVED: Do not start a list unless you intend to finish it.
