Okay, I'm back again.
It's been crazy busy. De-packaging toys, finding batteries, working out instructions, eating, partying, watching family movies, phoning family around the world, eating, crying over ice dams, thinking about pilates, walking the dog, clearing snow off the roof, re-installing secondhand appliances (everything except the dishwasher, it's a loooong story), plumbing, praying, and now cleaning. DD is vying for computer time 8-O (Webkinz) and DS is wanting dinosaur books read. All good. All lovely. All a bit frustrating for someone who needs to write more than I need to bathe LOL.
But, there's always a lesson around New Year. It's a difficult time for many. I'm blessed with a happy party animal for a husband, raised in Scotland where NY is a PARTY :) It keeps everyone UP. We have friends though, where the husband/dad has just been diagnosed with a stage 3 inoperable brain tumor. This will be a rather poignant NY for them--it will take a miracle to overcome, but I'm always hoping for miracles, I believe in miracles, so positive thoughts for them, positive vibes and hope.
I hope 2008 is good for everyone.
I have a list of goals I'll post in a couple of days (when we've had the party--with a ROCK BAND no less) and I'm back in the groove. But right now the main goal in life is not to sweat the small stuff.
Love and hugs, Toni.
