I did some major celebrating for New Year's Eve- we went out with 3 of our couple friends for dinner and then to the new Casino- we had so much fun! In fact, I had a little too much fun and spent all of the first day of January in my bathrobe- and a few minutes in the party hat I acquired the night before. While in my bathrobe, I did some reflecting. I journaled about plans and thoughts for the New Year, nothing super exciting, just some ideas on my mind while I put the page together: 2009- A brand new year is beginning, a time to focus on goals and plans for the next chapter in life. I can always make plans to work on, achieving things as I go, but I wonder what happy surprises await me this year. A new career? A baby? Weight loss? Fame and fortune? I hope that I can take charge of the parts of my life that need changing and look back on 2009 with pride. I think that this could be the year for dreams to come true.
