Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Second Day of 2022???

Happy Monday!!!! It’s 59 degrees in my living room so, reluctantly, I am turning on the heat. Albie Dog is so buried in blankets I can’t see him, but I’m the human, if I like it cold, he has to put up with being cold.

Here is where you get to ask me anything from “what was Popka’s card from last week? Why no photo?” to “Why is RRR delayed again?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions!!!!

Now, a question for you!!!! What are your personal 2022 objectives? Not resolutions (because those never work), but thinks that you will be focusing on for the next year? From “an easy transition to high school for my child” to “this is the year I graduate” to whatever else.

All I want for 2022 is to finally get my house in order. I want my closets set up, I want to get cleaners once a month, and I already set up an every other week produce order. I want to stop feeling so overwhelmed by basic stuff! I’ve been organized before, it’s just the huge project of moving 3 times, clearing out the basement, getting everything painted, etc. etc. If I could get my own 6 rooms just right, so there was a place for everything and I could just put it away easily instead of constantly have stuff sitting out until I can figure out what I should do with it, that would make my life SO much easier.

  1. Honestly I appreciate not having a photo of my card so I can’t accidentally click it. Please don’t tell anyone what it is without huge spoiler notices.

    Time is meaningless during the neverending pandemic. I have no objectives except to watch the rest of my Christopher Lee movies because I still have enormous amounts of feelings about him somehow.


  2. My 2022 objective is very similar to yours, I want to organise house and garden so I dont spend all that time agonising about it while I exhaustedly peel myself another grape. Step 1 I have admitted to myself and others (thats you guys) that I need help, now I need to find a competent and reliable gardener, and possibly a cleaner – I never considered a monthly clean, that might work. I also need to let go of a lot of furniture and Things that I’ve kept around cos I inherited them, not because I’m hooked on stuff per se. Also stuff from past lives that I thought I’d get back to when young son left the nest, but now realise I never will. Time to update to where I am now in life at 63, and make room for the new. I have even consigned my silk stockings to the charity pile!


    • YES! I am SO excited about a monthly cleaner! And I have hope that if it is super clean once a month it will make it easier for me to keep up on my own the rest of the time.

  3. I was excited to do stuff in 2022 like go back to museums finally and plan a vacation without second guessing every decision but now my kids are back to learning remotely in the house all day and I am with Albie hiding under blankets and hoping this time is shorter.


  4. 2021 allowed me to see family – and I don’t want to lose that focus on family. Even though my in-laws are currently driving me crazy with their unpredictability and ridiculousness, I don’t want to lose my joy that they are still with us. I don’t want to settle into the ho hum of life and forget, forget that I’m lucky I can see them, that I’m lucky they’re alive, that my kids are lucky they can know their grandparents. But I can sense that urge, that urge to go ho hum again, so I need to remember to battle it.

    • Post-Grandpa, my family is in a little burst of closeness. I’m trying not to wonder if this will last or think about the future, but just be happy for what I had.

  5. Our family dog Tiffany, had to be put to sleep today. Old age and pains etc. She had been with us for 14 1/2 years. The cutest Yorkshire Terrier you can imagine. Came with us from Thailand. It was all peaceful. Happened at home and surrounded by us all. She is better now.


  6. Can you/is it smart to sleep in a kurta? My students keep bugging me to buy one, and I might just cave since I have $80 in Amazon gift cards to waste, but I don’t actually want to wear one in front of my kids because I’m white and that would be weird, and if I can’t wear it out in public, that means sleep clothes, but I’ve never owned Indian clothes in my life so I don’t know if it would be a good idea to buy one for that purpose.

    I wanna try to find love that lasts. Obviously, I have an incredible support system of family and friends. But I got dumped in September this past year, very unexpectedly, while most of my close friends are either married or are most likely going to marry the person they are currently with at some point. It makes me sad sometimes. And that’s a terrible outlook to have on love, I know, but that’s where I’m at right now.


    • You can definitely sleep in a Kurta. What they are really perfect for is super super hot summer days at home. Or going to the grocery store or whatever. Super cool and comfy.

      I hope you get everything you want in 2022, as I hope for all my friends (DCIB and otherwise). But I would also say, as someone who is 36 and single, that life can surprise you. I’m really happy with where I am, and I don’t feel lonely or running behind where my friends are. Stuff can turn out okay without needing to follow a script.
