Happy New Year 2009!!

Happy New Year to all of you!

We have had a whirlwind holiday here the last few weeks. Lots of company in shifts and a quick trip to Texas.

We are ready and excited to start a new year. Have you made your resolutions?

I know some people do not make them because they view that as a quick way to fail. I see the new year as a time to start fresh. What do I need to do better? What do I need to improve? Goals are good when they are realistic and important to you.

The homepage on our computer is MSN and here are some of their suggestions:
-Spark your love life!
-Save money
-Recycle
-Lose weight - well that's a no brainer

My list includes losing and keeping off 4 pounds and walking more frequently...among other things. What are your goals?

Oh, I asked my mom and aunt the other day what their resolutions are. My aunt said, "Well, I think I'm going to drink more wine." I loved that!!

Four pounds! I need to lost at least 20. But I just seem to gain them back. My resolution is to be content. To maintain contentment and try to live as stress-free as possible. I hope for you the very same, blogging friend!

Happy New Year!

Drinking more wine was among my many resolutions too! I saw a blurb on the news a few days ago that said that drinking wine and eating chocolate are GOOD for you! You don't have to tell me that twice :-)

Hope 2009 is wonderful for you and your family !!!!

Sorry, I think I'm going to take your aunt's advice instead of yours! I've given up on weight loss (of course if I only had 4 pounds I needed to lose, I might do it)! Happy New Year Stacey! laurie

Happy New Year! I posted my resolutions on The American Homemaker... I don't usually make them, but this year I thought, why not? :)

Resolutions, don't make them because I know I'll never keep them. I do always try to improve though, be kinder to others & things like that. I hope you have a great year! Hugs, DebraK

Stacey,
Thanks for stopping by the blog! I'd love the challenge of mixing robins egg blue in with red and yellow. I think it could be, and would be fabulous. Do you mind sending me pictures of the room? And if you do, would you mind if I use it as a blog post? Thanks! Happy New Year!
