Mama has always said…start the year off doing something you’d like to do all year…and…unlike some of Mama’s advice…I’ve always tried to do that…this morning was no exception…

I painstakingly selected an outfit to wear…one that accentuated the pounds that I’ve lost…and still flattered those that I haven’t…I took care with my makeup and hair…even though I didn’t have any major plans for the day…

All was going well…

I made the bed and tidied up…emptied the dishwasher…smugly envisioning what a wonderful year I would have…my life would be orderly…I would look good…what could be better…

Well…a nutritious breakfast of course…I do intend to continue my healthy eating habits this year…

I put fresh spinach and onions in the skillet for my favorite omelet…while I whipped a couple of eggs…not quite certain why the spinach wasn’t cooking…I realized that I had neglected to turn on the stove…hmmm…but not to worry…it was corrected soon enough…and it was time to pour in the eggs…I lifted the edges as they cooked…I rotated the liquid around the pan…just like I always do…but these…well…they didn’t quite flip just right…and it wasn’t the prettiest omelet I ever made…but with my sliced tomatoes…it still looked good enough to eat…

So…I brought it to my office…where I proceeded to multitask…in retrospect…perhaps not my wisest decision…however…hindsight is 20-20…anyway…as I perused Facebook…holding my plate with one hand…and scrolling with the other…my omelet decided it wanted a do-over on the flipping…landing squarely in my lap…while the tomatoes not wanting to be left out…visited the keyboard…and…the pants I’d carefully selected visited the laundry basket…

I’ve also paid bills and balanced my checkbook…painted my toenails…started the laundry…and now…I’m writing my blog…I’m not sure what all that says for my year ahead…but…I’m certain that…Bertha…will fill me in on the details in a bit…she always does…
