New Year Wishes


I wanted to write something profound for my first post of the new year but PROFOUND eludes me this morning. I will say that 2011 wasn't a totally sucktastic year but it wasn't the most awesome either. Still too many bumps in the road last year but I will confess that it wasn't all bad either. I began last New Years Day telling myself (and hoping mightily) that 2011 would be better for my friends, loved ones and myself and it was. A bit. So this New Year's Day, I wished for the same. Maybe it'll kick in in spades this time. Here's hoping!

One of the wonderful things about 2011 was that we bought a beautiful new lake house. It sets on a high hilltop overlooking a pristine crystal blue lake. The day after Christmas, our family headed out there for a week long vacation and I must say, the experience brought me a lot of peace. In the coming year, I hope to visit as often as possible. Now we're home and back in the real world again. The real world isn't bad though, is it? I began my year as I wanted, surrounded by family and writing. I even managed to finish a book that has been hanging over my head. So this year my hope is to write a bit more, spend more time with family and friends and hopefully shed a few nasty habits. Fingers crossed.

What are you hopes and dreams for the coming year?

I wish to quit the EDJ and be able to write, read and review. Of course, making some money off of it would be good too. I wish more success for my husband and that we get that trip to Hawaii in April. My hubby deserves it, trust me.

My hopes is for our family to stay healthy. I've got elderly parents and a MIL all in their 80s and we had major health issues in 2011. I'd like to be hospital free this year. My first grandchild is coming soon this year so I am hoping to enjoy being a grandparent too. Lots to look forward to in 2012.
Happy new year!
