Sliding into 2020

The new year brings challenges. One of the biggest challenges is writing the date correctly--it never seems to be too big a problem to change the month and day, but the year is the big problem. I suppose that I will write 2019 for at least half the month of January until I actually get used to the new year and new decade. 

I was reading an article about 20 things to look forward to in 2020 and found an interesting set of historical events. At number 9 were the following historical events:

Of course the new year also brings the bevy of resolutions. The "I will . . ." or "I resolve to . . . " Most of the resolutions will not make it past the second week. I must confess--I did not make any resolution for this coming year. That written, I hope to be more in the moment and not so distracted about things coming or things in the past. 

And then there are vacations! I am already planning vacations and there are already two significant trips on the docket with a third looming. There will be a 2-week trip to Italy, a 1-week trip to Cooperstown with the baseball team and we are also looking at a cruise later in the year. 

Before I know it, I will be writing about new year 2021!
