Happy New Year to You!

2011.

Wow!

I can still remember the celebration we had in 1999.
In some ways, I wish I could wiggle my nose and be right back 
at that very moment we were ringing in the new year.
So much has changed since then as life really deals 
you some cards that are not always that royal flush.

But it call comes down to choices that we make.
If I had only done this 
or
if I had only done that.

Too bad we don't get do overs in life.

Alas, I will place my quandary behind me and look 
into the future of this brand new year of 2011.


Here are some of the things I plan on doing this year...

As always, I see how long I can go before I subconsciously write 2010 on a check (but since I don't 
write very many checks these day, I'm thinking I will do much better than last year where I made it all the way to January 2, 1010)!

Joining Weight Watchers.
Why, you ask?  Because I think WW is the least restrictive of all diets and I just have to have
the new points calculator!  Wish me luck!

Having such an adorable subject, Jack, I plan on scrapbooking more.
Seems to me it would be a great idea if I would create one book for each year of his life...
which, by definition already, means I am so far behind!

Read more than 2010.  
I feel good about this one because I managed to finish quite a few
books last year.  With my new eReader in hand, this should aid
my goal.

Plan on being happy.  
It's simple, right?  Just live in the moment, appreciate what I have in this world,
because so many others have far, far less than I am blessed with.

Make sure I show my husband how I feel about him everyday.
This past year, 2 surgeries and 3 long hospital stays have me realizing that
life is too short.  

Thank you for reading my blog.  I truly appreciate everyone of you that 
I have grown to know over the past years.

That is all I can muster up at this time.  I have a big pot of chili on the stove for this rainy 
first weekend of the new year.

Go Falcons!

Good post Deb! I am embracing some changes in my life this year also! More organization so I can enjoy my things more. Read more, move more and eat better. I need to just take better care of me in this new year! Happy New Year to you!
