I come here every day, but I haven't posted since January 2012. I spend all my time over at Facebook, but it occurs to me that there are things I don't/can't say there that I can probably say here. Not promising anything, but I think I'll try to post here at least once a week. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

MORE

‎2012’s theme is going to be More.

Does anyone really make New Year’s resolutions? I don’t think I ever did. But for New Year’s Eve 2009 I remember thinking the year’s theme was going to be adventure. I went to Korea and Galveston (on practically a whim, unheard of for me) and made KOPS. Very adventurous, for me.

2010 didn’t have a theme, but a theme was thrust upon it. Change. Lots of change. ...A job, finally, in May. And then kablooey. More change, more stress, more sadness than I ever could have imagined. The only bright spot I remember is getting the job offer in December from the school district. New Year’s Eve 2011 I was thinking about the new job and how fractured the Christmas season had been. No theme was the theme for 2011 and that’s how the year worked out.

Things happened in 2011. Dramatic things, sad things and I’m sure some happy things, but none come to mind right now. Looking back I see that 2011 was a year spent hiding and scared. Hiding from sad things. Holding tight to things I didn’t want to lose. So much of 2010 was about loss, but 2011 I just sat in a corner refusing to move, refusing to let go. I didn’t want to lose anything or anyone else. And maybe I didn’t lose anything, but I didn’t gain anything either. I didn’t change, didn’t improve, didn’t contribute to the people or the world around me. In truth I was stagnant in 2011.
2012 has to be different. I want MORE.

Some of the more should be easy. I want to live more, love more, hug more. Care more, share more, give more, help more. I really want to learn more and teach more. Some of the more will be a little harder. I want to save more, pray more, run more, ride more and inspire more. Some of the more might verge on impossible, but I’m going to try. I want to witness more, listen more, and most of all I want to forgive more. More. I want more.

On the way home from my swim I was listening to CNN and a woman was talking to a group about the most current health insurance reform bill. Now first off I have to say I have not read the bill yet and I have heard very little about it, so I don't have an opinion one way or the other and I'm not meaning to start a political discussion. The woman (now that I'm home I realize it's First Lady Michelle Obama) was talking about women's medical issues and said that some insurance policies do not cover pap smears or mammograms. While I don't doubt that there are some really, really bare bones plans out there, I was wondering how many of the women on my flist who *do* have insurance, but it doesn't cover these tests. This is the first time in my life I have *not* had insurance and every plan I've ever had covered these tests. Pap smears yearly and mammograms after a certain age (and I was able to get my baseline at 30 because of family history). Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer.
