All bright and shiny and sparkling and smelling clean.
Enjoy it folks! The new will wear off fast.
Although it actually doesn’t seem that long since last year was new. I remember having all sorts of resolutions and plans for what I was gonna do with my bright, shiny, spanking new year.
I don’t think any of those actually happened. I didn’t lose a lot of weight, become the worlds best housekeeper, or a great cook. I didn’t even manage to keep the furniture dusted.
I had also planned to do more writing on my blogs. That didn’t happen either. I did improve my writing a bit I think (I could be delusional) and have managed to write a few longer posts but writing every day just didn’t happen.
It isn’t gonna happen this year either. Probably. I’m not making any resolutions anyway.
I might pick ONE thing to work on but I’m NOT gonna have a long list because I hate disappointing myself not to mention anyone else that happens to care.
All that said…I’m feeling better this year (so far) and even if I didn’t do the things I planned….lots of other things got accomplished that are not so easy to measure.
I don’t worry so much for one thing. That is a big improvement.
How was your year? Did you do all you wanted to do? Did you make resolutions this year?
Christmas is over and it is almost New Years Day. Did you have a good Christmas? I had a great day with my family.
I ate too much of a really wonderful dinner cooked by my mother. She says I will have to start doing the cooking soon as she is getting a bit too old. I’m afraid the dinners might not be that good again!
I also got a crock pot. One with a timer. It will automatically shut off when the time is up. I like that as I am often not sure just when I will be getting home and it worries me to leave something hot on for too long. I will post a review of it after I have used it a few times.
What all did you do for Christmas? I hope you were with your family. It really sucks to be away from them on the holiday. Did you get any good presents? Let us all know so we can share the joy!
The New Year
The New Year is almost on us too. How did last year go for you? Anything big happen? I started blogging on a regular basis and am still loving it so far. I also lost my grandmother. I’m not loving that. We still miss her.
Other than that it was a pretty good year. I’m hoping this next year will be as good or better. Do you have any plans for the New Year? Resolutions? I would like to lose at least 30 lbs myself.
New Years Celebration
Are you going to party on New Years Eve? Me and my husband are probably going to sit home and watch the celebrations on TV. Those big parties in Times Square are usually fun to watch.
I’m also participating in the Happy New Years Giveaway Hop starting on December 30. Having the chance to win something is a great way to celebrate the new year. Come on over and join us when you get the chance. It lasts till January 3 so you will have time to recover from the partying first!
Whatever happens I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a great year!
