So, 2017…I thought I was ready for you.  I was in it to win it.  But you had other plans.   Seriously, I know a year can’t do anything to me…but when you want to make sure you have your crap together and you are ready to have a successful, no drama, life….something smacks you in the face and it makes you want to cry. (Ok, maybe not you…but it does that to me!) 2016 ended with my water pressure going wonky.  What’s wrong with it?  Not sure yet.  The pump keeps running and running.  So we are living this first week of January by turning it on and turning off manually.  Fun right?  Not. So. Much.  But I’m going to look on the bright side…and here it is:

  • I have water.  So many people don’t.  My well could have run dry….or my pump could have stopped pumping.  It didn’t.  Win #1.
  • I am getting steps in.  That’s right…the breaker box is in the basement.  Up. Down. Up. Down.   Win #2.  (Cue Resolution to Work Out More in 2017!)
  • My husband is handy.  Granted, the first thing he tried to fix it didn’t work, but between him and my brother-in-law, they think they know what the problem is and can fix it over the next weekend.  No plumber necessary.  Win #3 (Cross your fingers these guys get it right the first time)

So see that….I could have wallowed in my tears (Truth: I did for about 10 minutes), but I moved on.  I am ready to take on what this year is going to make me face.  I am in it to win it.  Let’s go 2017…. On Your Mark. Get Set. GO!

What are you going to be POSITIVE about this year?
