2020 – Happy New Year

For years I would do New Year’s Resolution. About February they were dust in the wind. Then my friend gave me a Wishing Pot. Each New Year’s Eve I sit down and open it up and read what my wishes were for the year. Some come true, some don’t, and some happened that weren’t in the Wishing Pot at all.

Another year, another opening of the Wishing Pot. What did I accomplish? What did I forget? What did I not write down but I did anyway?

What will I put in there for next New Year’s Eve? What are my hopes and dreams for 2020?

 

1 writing-related, 1 health-related, and 1 personal. It is funny how I won’t think about those wishes until it is time to check them next New Year’s Eve. Happy wishes to everyone for 2020 to be all you want and need it to be.

What is your wish for 2020?

and how did it become 2020???!!!

2019 – Happy New Year

For years I would do New Year’s Resolution. About February they were dust in the wind. Then my friend gave me a Wishing Pot. Each New Year’s Eve I sit down and open it up and read what my wishes were for the year. Some come true, some don’t, and some happened that weren’t in the Wishing Pot at all.

This past New Year’s Eve I got my wish pot off the shelf and opened it up. Imagine my disappointment to find no wishes inside. The wish pot had still been packed away last New Year’s Eve after the move to our new house and it was months later that my office was finally in order and the little pot on a shelf.

 

 

But, now it has new wishes for this coming year. 1 writing-related, 1 health-related, and 1 personal. It is funny how I won’t think about those wishes until it is time to check them next New Year’s Eve. Happy wishes to everyone for 2019 to be all you want and need it to be.

What is your wish for 2019?

2016 – Happy New Year

For years I would do New Year’s Resolution. About February they were dust in the wind. Then my friend gave me a Wishing Pot. Each New Year’s Eve I sit down and open it up and read what my wishes were for the year. Some come true, some don’t, and some happened that weren’t in the Wishing Pot. Each New Year’s Eve I sit down and wish for some new things. Some come true, some don’t, and some happen that I didn’t put in the Wishing Pot.

What is your wish for 2016?


I’m wishing for more butt in chair time to put out more books in 2016. I’m wishing to continue my new lifestyle choices of portion control and some exercise every day. I’m wishing for happiness and healthfulness for me and my family.

Happy Birthday Private Tim

Tim's 1st Birthday

We did have a party for Tim before he left for boot camp, but his official birthday is today. He is 20 years old. And still my baby.

I hope to hear from him, but if not I think I’ll text him a birthday wish and he will get it when it gets it. Joining the army means all of us will have to leave different things. He has a lot to learn but we will have to learn to communicate when he is able, to not see him for long stretches of time, and to enjoy each time he is able to call or write.Happy Birthday Tim.

Tim's 20th Birthday
