My New 2018 Resignations…

 

No, that’s not a typo…these are my ten 2018 resignations…these are things I’ve not resolved to do, but some things that I have resigned as being in my future, or not…whether I want them to or not…so in no particular order…

1. I’ve  resigned myself to the fact that I should call my sister. It’s been a few years since I’ve had any contact with her…I have no idea why…

2. I’ve resigned myself to taking a week to go to Florida, whether anyone else wants to go with me or not…I prefer by myself…but if they must come, they must…

3. I’ve resigned myself to the idea that I’ve spent a lot of money on life insurance…maybe my family could be better off with me permanently out of the picture, if you will…I hope they’ll at least wait until I get back from Florida…

4. I’ve resigned myself to the idea that I may have taken my last walk down Main Street U.S.A. or walked around the countries at Epcot with my daughter for a long time…

5. I’ve become resigned to the chance that I will need to take a second type of medication each day to go along with my Dilantin…sucks getting old…

6. I’ve become resigned to the fact you (me) can never go back there again…and my days of truck driving are over…

7. I’ve resigned myself that, in conjunction with Number 5, I may have to give up those wonderful sticky buns with my breakfast…especially if I want to get back under 200 pounds again…

8. I’ve become resigned to the idea that I may never…ever…run the marathon at Disney World…this really isn’t much of a resignation since I don’t really want to run a marathon…I can still feel just as fulfilled raising money for St Jude Children’s Hospital running a 5 or 10k…

9. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I will never again celebrate New Year’s Eve by watching that silly ball in Times Square drop…all of the awkward interviews of people I have never, nor will I ever, meet…all those lip-syncing singers trying to pretend their singing live…from here on out…it’s a movie then to sleep…if I haven’t already fallen asleep during the movie…

10. Last year went a long way to helping me resign myself to the fact that I’ve been a crappy son, brother, father, friend, and at times co-worker/employee. I need to Treat     people better…

And…if you’ve made it this far, you’re probably muttering to yourself that I should throw crappy writer into the mix as well…
