2008 proves to be interesting here in our neck of the woods. The year won’t be more than a day old when my husband has another birthday. I will thankfully be ending the myriad of “50-year-old” doctor’s appointments and then our grandson, Dylan-is turning ONE!
How fast did this year go by? That isn’t all-we will be anticipating the birth of darling grandson #2. Given that Dylan came a month early, as did his mom and uncle-it will be interesting to see if this little one celebrates as an only child or as a big brother!
For me, my resolutions are pretty much the same as last year’s. Not that I didn’t succeed, I actually did do what I had hoped, just not as much as I would have liked.
My resolutions last year were to earn more writing than I had in years past, work at writing more and trying to put my physical problems in a better “footing”. (Groan at that pun, but after living with my hubby for almost 27 years, his puns were bound to rub off at some point)
I accomplished both, in a manner of speaking. I earned almost $1,500! I also have more spots on the search engines than I did in 2006. My blogging has grown-besides here, I am a Lady’s Home Journal Blogger, I guest every other Tuesday on AWomansPlace and my entries also are on fabulously40.com
As for the little nitpicky foot problem-well, I’m certainly not able to leap small buildings in a single bound, or walk for very long at any speed I’d brag about, but I am walking better.
So my 2008 resolutions are to continue to write and hopefully get paid more, continue my pursuit of rehab on the physical thing and then-here’s a new one: I WANT TO HAVE A PLANNED DAY OFF WITH MY HUSBAND!
Let me know what all of you are looking forward to or working on.
May the coming year be filled with good health, good times with our loved ones and good fortune for all of us.
Happy New Year!
How wonderful for you that you achieved your goals...no matter how small you think they may be, any goal that's reached is always a huge achievement!
I hope you have a wonderful New Year...it seems that you have a lot to look forward to! A new baby is always exciting! And I'm sure everything you want to do in 2008 will be accomplished!
Here's wishing you & family a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year.
To think you will be a grandma again! Isn't that exciting!
Life just can't get better than that.
See ya next year!
You're so right-I was a bit taken aback at being a grandma, but once it happened, I'm enjoying it very, very much!
New Year's Eve is traditionally at our house with my wife's sister's family. That's happened for decades now. My two boys are doing their own thing, but there'll still be six of us playing board games, eating home-prepared crab legs and prime rib, and watching Dick Clark (hope he looks and sounds better than last year).
Nice goal to pay off the house, ours too is almost there. Cheers!
A planned day off without hubby sounds like an occasional treat - will cross my fingers for you that you just get to indulge and enjoy doing whatever it is !
Happy New Year!
I've still got this danged cold. Grrr.
When I get better, I'd like to join you for that cup of coffee !
Let's plan on that coffee very soon!
