Just going through my luggage, clearing out some things to make way for enlightenment
Tuesday, December 27, 2005Christmas Wrap... Up
Well it's officially over. I delivered my last round of gifts today and I believe each one was genuinely appreciated. As always, the aunts brought me the the most joy. They loved their gifts, which over the years have become more functional. This year they got Eucerin lotion, foot cream, and a loaf of my secret recipe pound cake. Any guess as to which they opened first? Well you don't exactly grease your feet at the kitchen table. My favorite gift this year were the salt and pepper shakers I bought my aunt, Jane. I actually found them back in October while on a business trip. She absolutely loved them! I feel good about all my purchases.
Once again my wish list went untouched, but I'll fold it up and put it away for next year. OR... I'll buy something for myself, but not until I'm settled in my new place and on my new job. Until then my credit is FROZEN!
Now I'm counting down to 2006. In preparation I am sharing a list of questions sent to me by my good friend, Corey. Let's all play
1. What is your most memorable moment of the year, whether it's good or bad?
Good... when me and my better half got back together.
Bad... when I got the news that my aunt had passed away.
2. Are you going to have a New Year's Resolution? If so, what is it,and for how long do you think you'll be able to follow through with it?
I have some goals, but I wouldn't exactly call them resolutions. I want to brush up my spanish and learn American Sign Language... I will be getting my stories ready for publication (I will be shopping my collection in early 2007)... I will be continuing graduate school (it's a process)... AND I'm going to take parenting classes in preparation for a blessed event (that's a whole 'nother post).
3. What do you hope to accomplish in 2006 that you didn't in 2005?
I will visit a foreign land (Prague). Last year I went to London and Paris. In 2003 I took a cruise to the Bahamas. There was just no time in 2005.
4. Are you still going to keep looking for that "special someone," or are you going to be like Beyonce and keep it "Me, Myself, and I"?
Mission Accomplished. Special someone FOUND!
5. Final question. How has 2005 been for you compared to 2004?
2005 hasn't been a big party, but I've experienced a great deal of personal growth that has definitely made it better than 2004>
Well that's it. I'm looking forward to 2006, which will be a banner year for me. God never fails so it's already done. See ya then!
