2007: A Reflection

It seems like only yesterday I was looking forward to the new year of 2007. One minute it was January and I was getting settled in my new house, the next minute I'm trying to decide on what to do for New Year's Eve. That's how fast the year has gone. It seems the older I get, the faster time flies. Is it that way for everyone, or is it just me.

I've given thought to 2007. I had to look back on previous posts to be reminded of everything I did this year. I got to return to my favorite place in the whole wide world (Caribbean). I reconnected with an old friend. I gave cancer the finger. I made my house a home. I laughed. I cried. I threw up more times this year than I have in my entire lifetime. Friends made. Love lost. Like a kaleidoscope, the entire picture changed with just the slightest of turns. Sometimes it was a good thing, sometimes it wasn't.

Someone asked me what my resolutions this year were. I resolved to not make any resolutions, because they end up falling by the wayside anyway. Yeah, I plan on going to the gym more, but that's because I'm a cheap bastard and paying money for something you don't take full advantage of is just plain stupid.

I guess maybe my biggest non-resolution is to not have as many expectations. I had a lot of them for 2007, and most all of them were met with disappointment.

So, here's to 2008.

Heather- Wish you could have been at the blogger gathering. Meesha has great eyes. Hmmm, I would call them bedroom eyes.

I can hardly keep my "bedroom eyes" open. Damn beverages.
