happy 2008!!!

Hanging with hubby on the dawn of the new year. Pretty cool. Here's to a couple things I've been thinking about for the new year. NOT resolutions, per say, but, well, thoughts. Not committing to actually doing all of them. But - at least - THINKING about them. (I say that knowing full well that I would just LOVE being to do everything all the time - I just know me - right? so nuff said!)

---Praying for Dick Clark. Dude, seriously, how did I miss his stroke? Saw him tonight for, I guess, the first time in forever and wow...not good. I don't mean any disrespect but it bums me out seeing him so not the ageless Dick Clark I grew up with.

---holding my own on Wii tennis. I've got High jump, skeet, bowling and archery down. Tennis has been tricking me up and peter like rocks at it (go figure - dude's never even held a racket!)

---Not becoming addicted to Red Bull and Vodka. that's some good shit there yo.

---FINISHING. THIS. DAMN. BOOK. seriously. are we ready to start shooting people over this thing. I have until the end of January to get it to the printer. If I don't...well someone's going down. That's all I gots to say.

---texting my high school friend Marnie who is so kick ass it's frightening. She doesn't even know I have this blog so I'm not kissing her ass. I've just missed her for like 20 freaking years and it's great being reconnected with her. I wish everyone could know her.

---scrapbooking for myself. for. my. damn. self. Not for the book, or project, or class. shit - not even for my kids. but for ME. and well then maybe for my kids. Cuz dems like killer cute!!!!

---getting back to life without my dad. being able to open my heart enough to truly feel his wisdom and strength. That goes for my mom too.

---on the same dad note - praying for his new wife, Melanie, who's having a very hard time with his passing. bless her heart. To getting to know her better and finding strength in each other.

---kid pitch baseball practices and games which start next week.

---getting the tree down.

---getting back to work after 11 days off. This is BY FAR going to be the hardest of all these things.

---letting my friends know how much I appreciate them.

---not slipping into the 'comfort' zone with my brother where we forget (or neglect) to tell each other every time we talk that we love one another. To remember we both need (want) to hear it and can't wait for some to die to say it.

---getting my disgusting carpets cleaned. dude, seriously, white carpets are WHACK.

k. bout it. Peter's out of the shower and I do believe I'll go play "would you rather" with him.

love you people. seriously. I say it, but not enough. Happy new Year!!!!!!! My life it SO MUCH better because of you.

Happy New Year!! :)
Good luck with that tennis thing. My arm is aching and I still can't win a damn match to save my life! I still rock the bowling, though. Barely... ;)

Happy New Year Michelle! I've been thinking about you a lot. I felt a connection Christmas morning because I thought we were both probably thinking the same stuff about our dads not being here. I've been meaning to connect with you and now that things are finally slowing down, life can get back to semi-normal.

Sounds like your family is having a lovely time together. Very nice.
Take good care.
