Well, its that time of the year again ... time to ring in the New Year.  This, of course, seems to come with the obligatory recap of the previous year.  The news is rife with 'top news stories of the year' and the blogs are all about revisiting last year's projects and/or milestones.  WHY?  I cannot tell you how much I dislike this penchant for reviewing everything good, bad or indifferent that happened in the past year.  It is nothing new ... I've always felt this way.  And, I really don't know why.  It isn't as if every year of my life has been without wonderful and memorable experiences.  Its just that I have that personality that wants to 'get on with it.'

2012 is done.  Stick a fork in it.  I am ready for the challenges of 2013.  I cannot wait to get the Christmas decorations put away.  (Although I have to wait this year as we have one more get together at our home before its officially over.)  I love starting out a fresh year, making plans for new projects, travel and, yes, even a healthier lifestyle.  I was that kid that loved the start of school every year also ... all the fresh new school supplies you know.  So, on that note, I probably won't read a lot of blog recaps.  After all, if I follow a blog, I've already been there, read that.  And, I'll change the channel before I'll sit through all of the dismal news stories from last year.  Some of it was too horrible to revisit.

I'm ready for the new year because, ready or not, here comes 2013.

I was going to agree with you before I posted my most popular 2012 blog hits. Really it was just a ploy to mention the number my Russian readers! I am totally intrigued. I always look forward to lists of the years best books!

Paint we will, my friend! I want to know what this magical paint fan looks like.
