See Ya 2009

Who else is ready for 2009 to go bye-bye? It wasn't a horrible year for me - I still have a job, we bought a new house, everyone is healthy - but it wasn't a great year either. Lots of stress and not a whole lot of fun in 2009. My goal for 2010 is to laugh more, have more fun, enjoy and be in the moment. I need to think twice before I buy something - is it a need or a want. I really really need to jump on the exercise train. The body just ain't the same that it use to be and I'm afraid it's only going to get worse unless I do something about it! So I'm hoping that by putting all this in writing, maybe it'll hold me more accountable to stick to it?

So blogging friends, here's to a fabulous 2010!!

To All A Good Night . . .

Can't believe Christmas is now over . . . every year it seems to suddenly be here and it's a whirlwind of activity. This year was my first time ever hosting Christmas for my family. Now I realize how much work my Mom did all these years - I am so tired!! But it was a success and even my brother-in-law was impressed (for whatever reason he is under the impression that I can't cook - proved him wrong today!). I always look forward to Christmas, but I also always look forward to when it is over . . . things calm down, my checkbook can take a break, time to get organized and ready for the new year. I'm excited about 2010. I have a feeling it's going to be a good year for me. I'm looking forward to spending this coming week with my growing-up-too-fast little girl. Santa was good to both of us with cash this year and we look forwarding to helping the economy out next week. I'll give this weekend to those who need to make returns . . . I'm ready to chill this weekend and eat lots of leftovers!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!

One more day of work and then I'm on vacation - woo hoo! After reading others' blogs, I don't feel like I'm alone as far as not being ready for Christmas . . . still have presents to wrap, groceries to buy, recipes to make, a house to clean - remember I'm hosting Christmas for the first time this year???!!!! . . . but you know what, it'll all get done somehow and before we know it, Christmas is over. I hope Santa is good to each and every one of you and here's to an awesome 2010!!
