What does a new year mean? To me, it means a clean slate and a fresh start; time for a 'do-over'. You have an opportunity every single day to believe in the possibility of achieving your goals and getting what you want...

Wow. 2009 is ending with a bang, so to speak.
My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer the week before Christmas and 7 days later was having surgery to remove 1/3 of her right lung. She's out of the hospital now and recuperating at home, thankfully. The road to recovery for her will be an extended one and we are hoping for the best.

I finished the year still holding down 2 jobs with very little free time in between. I'm going to cut back to just 2 days/week at Hobby Lobby in the hopes of finding a little more 'me time'. My motto for the coming year will be: "Work to live; don't live to work."

I'm spending New Year's Eve at home with a friend; no raucous partying for us... At the rate things are going, we'll be lucky to make it 'til midnight, which is fine by me. I'm ready for a new year and a fresh start!

After a long dry spell, I finally finished a scrapbook page. It's definitely not my best effort, but it felt good to get all ink-y again!

Two weeks since my last post and not much has changed other than the fact that I've been sick this entire time. Nothing horrific like H1N1, just a nagging sinus/head cold thing. Still all work and no play with every free moment spent trying to get better, which translates into early bedtimes.

I worked this morning and cam home early. Now baking some pumpkin bread; gonna have and early dinner and go to bed yet again! 'Night!
