Adios 2007

I don't know about you, but I don't really feel the need to look back at the events of last year, just because a new year is upon us. I usually have to read my blog archives to remember what in the world I did, anyway. But I can tell you how I'm feeling today, and that is hopeful for the future. I feel like this is going to be a good year. Those last eight pounds are going to come off, I'm going to finish editing one or all of my novels and looking to publish, I'm going to finish my term on my homeschool co-op's committee and take the fall semester off to recover. My twenty-year high school reunion is in October, where I will make all the guys wonder why they never asked me out.

Yep, if only it weren't an election year, I'd be pretty gung-ho about 2008. Man, I hate politics. And when I say I hate it, I mean that I secretly love it, but I don't ever discuss it in public because I hate arguing about it. I don't blog about it because there are so many other people who do it better than I could. But rest assured that just because I am not discussing it does not mean that I am not thinking about it.

Happy 2008, everybody!


  1. Hey there! Agreed about the politics! At our XMas Tree Walk there was a guy who was DYING to get into it...rubbing his hands and yelling, "Alright!!!" and the whole bit.

    Can't we all just talk about
    flowers or ice cream?

    Anywho, best in 08 to you guys!!!

  2. I get spun up over politics too - I just wish I could go a day without seeing it plastered all over everything. Yes, its important, its part of the process but starting it so far in advance just makes for apathetic voters (well in my humble opinion anyway).

    HAPPY 2008!

  3. I think by the end of December, we are glad to see the back of the year and look forward to starting afresh.

    Happy New Year!

  4. I think this year will be great for you too because you're optimistic. Sometimes that's all it takes.

    Good luck on all your goals.

    As for politics, I blog about it here and there but it's definitely on my mind more than on my blog. It's hard to talk about since I know my readers are from both sides of the fence. I don't like to argue either.
