As I sit on the couch (on which I have been perched for hours) watching the Rose Bowl with my husband and my 2 dogs, and surfing the blogosphere, I see many people making statements about what they want to do for the new year. What they are hopeful for, what they are glad to leave behind. I wonder myself what will happen this year. What things I can control and what I can't. I have aging family members (including one of my dogs) and I brace myself for the possible losses that the year could bring.
I also have a son graduating from 8th grade, trips to Seattle, Hawaii and Las Vegas, a 40th birthday for both me and my husband and many other yet untold reasons to celebrate.
There are things that I would love to accomplish this year, loose some weight, eat healthier, exercise more, read more, connect with my family members and close friends more, meet new friends, etc.
But the truth is, if I could land the end of 2007 exactly the same way I am starting it, I would be a happy camper.
