Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone had a nice holiday and a happy new year! For me, the holidays were great. We celebrated our second anniversary on the 30th. Also, I am going to Mexico from the 10th-18th so I'm getting all ready for that. I got most of my ideas for my WIP while in Hawaii a little over a year ago so I hope that this trip will help me get even more accomplished.

I went down to Indianapolis for Christmas, but spent Christmas Eve up in Chicago. I got a lot of great stuff. Pete got me an AreoGarden which will allow me to grow herbs inside. I also got a lot of hostess stuff, a special blender, some board games. Seriously was the best Christmas as far as getting stuff since I was a kid. My nieces and nephews all enjoyed their gifts. I love spending Christmas with kids. Makes it all so much more special.

Work isn't going very well and while I don't think any of them would read this, I will just leave it at that.

New Years Resolutions anyone?
* I resolve to finish my book and will write at least 100 words a day.
* I resolve to graduate this year, take my GMAT, apply for an MBA program and get my PMP (project manager cert).
* I resolve to be more socially active (aka not so work centric) and will hang out with people at least twice a week.
* I resolve to start a recycling program at work and increase recycling at home.
* I resolve to get involved in my faith community and start going back to church.

All in all, I think 2009 is going to be a great year.

* Recycling and church goals added on Dec 7th

Hi Lauren,

Thanks for making my post a favourite.

My new years resolution is to simplify my life. I'm too involved with too many things and have accumulated just too much clutter over the years.

Time to get back to basics.

Barry- That is a fantastic goal. I think many people could benefit from that concept. Good luck with it!

Charles- Happy new year to you too :)
