Year End Special

It took me a long time to get into anything approaching a "Christmas Spirit."

The last two years were the best Christmases I have had since I was a child. I got to spend them with, and as part of, a wonderful family. I got to help Santa with his Christmas surprises.

This year, I spent a lot of time feeling like I was missing out. Of course this kept me from joining in, and therefore ensured that I missed out.

I got into the spirit late in the season. I didn't get any Christmas cards sent and even though I had a few Christmas presents, they didn't get delivered either. I have no idea when they will get to the appropriate people.


My sister sent me a book for Christmas. I have not read it yet, but very much appreciate it and look forward to reading it.


I have also been spending more time talking to, and hanging out with, friends. Both old and new. Some I have known over 12 years, some for less then 12 weeks.

We have played pool, video games, card games, and just hung out and talked. Oh, and listened to very good music. You should check out S.J. Tucker and see if she is singing in your area.


My resolutions from last year:
  • I am still 25 pounds off my goal weight.

  • I read 4 more books than my goal.

  • You know how my writing resolution has gone.

  • My new apartment is a lot more organized than my old place was, but still needs some work.

My resolutions for the upcoming year will be in a following post.

  1. Well, Happy New Year nonetheless and hope 2008 brings you a good dollop of happiness.

    25 pounds off your goal weight, you say, but what you don't say is that you lost a bunch of weight, didn't you?

    Oh, and reading more books than your goal is not to be sneezed at. In 2007 it took me until July to finish just those books I was given for Christmas, which is pretty sad (there weren't *that* many of them).

    My goal for 2008 is to try and post more useful comments on peoples' blogs. Not off to much of a start, am I? ;)
