2012 was the year I almost lost my faith in humanity………
With the 2012 Presidential election I discovered that a huge portion of the population is insane not to mention racist, sexist, bigoted, and just plain hateful.
2012 was also the year my love for tasty plain only one pickle having chicken sandwiches died a horrible hateful death. Thanks a lot Chik Fil-A.
2012 was the year I learned as women we haven’t come as far as we thought.
2012 is also the year where unspeakable violence took the lives of 26 people of which 20 were children. The devastation at Sandy Hook will forever be ingrained in my memory. I’m hopeful that we as Americans, mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters can put aside irrational fears of government conspiracies and take a real look at gun control and the way we treat/care for the mentally ill.
2012 was also the year of Gangnam Style which I still don’t get. Kanye West knocked up a Kardashian WTF? Mid-drifts made a comeback. Another WTF I’ve had 6 kids I need long shirts. The Cowboy’s disappointed me again. Hurricane Sandy annihilated New Jersey. Speaking of New Jersey Snookie still has a reality show. Which also brings me to the cult phenomenon of Honey Boo Boo. Proof there may not be a God. Yes I said it, please don’t smite me.
On a personal note 2012 is the year I gave birth to my only son cue Lynyard Sknyrd’s Simple Man. It was also the moment I nearly lost my life. Since then I have reflected greatly on things. I have no resolutions. But I do plan on living and loving life much harder. A little less Facebook and more real life interactions. A little less iPhone and more sex with my husband. Actually lots of sex with my husband. And maybe a little more cleaning here and there. Oh and I’ll talk to them kids I have running around here.
I’ll also no longer just say okay. Okay sucks. I want better than okay. This year I’m not going to be so mediocre. Well shit those sounded a lot like resolutions.
Normally I end the year with Doris Day but this year you get The Smashing Pumpkins
