Taking Attendance

With a New Year Comes a new look.  I’m all about change at the moment.  Things here (as I wrote before) have been crazy, but they’re finally slowing down a bit. 
The Holidays slapped me up, kicked my ass and put me in my place this year.  I just mean that I thought I was doing really well with “Living in the Moment.”  HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  Nothing like decorating the Christmas tree to classic Christmas songs sung by the Greats to make this girl 9 yrs old again, and terribly missing my mom and dad.  Unfortunately that dark, empty feeling stuck through most of the holidays for me no matter what I tried to shake it.  I had a few glimmers of happiness while watching Kidlet open her gift, but it wasn’t until I got to see my Dad this past weekend that I felt better.  The Holidays make me homesick.  Bah. 
Okay.  Time to take attendance.  Mine that is…..What did I accomplish in 2008?
I Jumped Off a 6 Story Tower
I Went on a Hot Air Balloon Ride
I (as of tonight) Finished My Course and Will Receive My Diploma in Floral Design
1 Finished: 2 Canvases,
2 Knitting Projects (yikes),
and 5 Books
and I think that’s about it.  *shaking head*–I was hoping to do more…..

Looking Ahead:  To-Do List for 2009
Go to a Milwaukee Brewer’s Game
Learn to play the Guitar
Learn to play the Ukulele (No, I’m not joking)
Paint more (like every year)
This is the Year I Write a Children’s Book!
This is also the Year I Come into My Own
Sky Dive
Host a Huge Summer Party
Start the Tradition of a Family Camping Trip with Friends

I also find out Jan 6th if I get into a program that very well may change my life.  I’m crossing my fingers to get in, yet am undecided about blogging about it yet….Sorry.   It’s nothing scandalous–just private.   However, if I get in be prepared for big changes. 🙂
I’m ready for 2009.  It just means another 365 days of opportunity. 😀
