New Year's Eve

2008 is rapidly coming to a close. I have hung the Big Grid 2009 calendar and pitched 2008. Medical appointments for 2009 have been written in the planner. Less than 2 hours until 2009 and I am ready!

All the news programs have done their "Year in Review" programming and New Year's at Time Square is beginning the count down. I have tried to do my own "Year in Review", but haven't gotten very far. It is really hard to look backwards. I do better at looking forward. Each day I can only begin where I am. There is a lot that I look forward to in 2009.

In 2009, I will become eligible for Medicare!
In 2009, my son and his wife will celebrate their 15th anniversary - neither of my marriages lasted that long!
In 2009, my beautiful grand-daughter will turn 4. Time goes really fast.
In 2009, my daughter will make me a Grandma for the second time!
In 2009, I will celebrate 12 years of being cancer free.
In 2009, my old cat, Smokey, will turn 20 years old. I hope he makes it to his birthday. Since I have no idea when that actually is, I just add a year when he goes in for his shots. That will be in September.
In 2009, I will increase my savings a little. With the downturn of the economy and pending retirement within the next couple of years this is important. This is not a resolution, because I never keep resolutions!
In 2009, I will celebrate life!

2008 has been a good year. Friendships have deepened and new friendships are growing. Going to work is still an enjoyable experience and coming home from work is also good. I truly feel that I am in a good place in life. I find very little to complain about - at least not much that really matters.

Happy New Year to All. Make 2009 be all that it can be for you and yours!

I love that you are looking ahead instead of looking back!
