Never Mind the Tooth Fairy…Beware of the Midnight Buffalo!

Never Mind the Tooth Fairy…….Beware of the Midnight Buffalo.

I made my list of New Years resolutions, not under the influence of alcohol…I am not a drinker, rather under the influence of wishful thinking or even in a delusional moment mixed in with a few high hopes.  Either way, I had gracefully jotted down my intentions and hung them with a sense of pride and optimism on the notice board in the kitchen.  It was almost like I was looking to the stroke of midnight to completely change my weight, income, purchasing power and vacation opportunities for the coming year!

Happy New Year, Here’s to Enough!

I will start writing again in the new year.  Right now, I would just like to say “have a good one” regarding New Years eve, to everyone who reads this.  I didn’t meet my goals this year in terms of financial accomplishments, weight loss accomplishments, work achievements, knitting, sewing projects are not all complete.  I did get a stack of stuff done though.  I undertook several course of education.  Spent time with my kids, both here and in Florida, caught up with my husband and enjoyed him being home much more than usual in the fourth quarter.  I dealt with fears that have kept me from enjoying myself or being enjoyable to others.  I made some money, broke new ground, lost fifteen pounds, worked in the garden, completed enough sewing and knitting projects to give in abundance to both my granddaughter and great niece.  Could I have done better? Always.  I had fun.  I moved mountains in emotional progress and I’m looking forward to the new year with a sense of healthy anticipation.  I know my kids are facing challenges.  I trust they will be able to dig deep within and clear their hurdles and get closer to their goals.  I wish you and yours the same well being and here’s to a good 2012.  It may not be as plentiful as you would like.  I wish you “enough”.

What you wish for.

Be careful what you wish for, isn’t that how the saying goes? I have been working and wishing, walking and wishing, swimming, gardening, knitting, blogging and putting one foot in front of each other in the name of hoping to achieve… and wishing. It’s soul destroying not making any progress. It can be uphill trying to keep the momentum going when there’s no tangible results. Oh and guess what? I’m not the most patient of individuals. As if you can’t figure that one out!

It wasn’t me!

It wasn’t me that broke the  computer (again)! My wi fi modem had a heart attack, pappie had a new one installed and I’m up and running today. Phew… This week is going to be what I call a peddling week. My month goals are set. My plan of action is in place. I’m going through the motions for all intents and purposes. I call this peddling because even though I haven’t reached my destination, I know where I’m going and I have to pedal to get there.  This morning I was peddling and I caught a glimpse of the destination…a little over the hill and far away  a bit like a road runner cartoon but the mere glimpse of the finish line is enough to keep me motivated…and that motivation is for my blog, my work as a Realtor, my diet or eating plan (even when pappie is outshining me  with his weight loss without the 4-5 mile morning frog march! ).
