Bye 2008!!!

I, for one, am quite happy to see this year go away. Aside from the fantastic trip to Disney we got to take in September, this year was not kind to us. At all. Only God knows what 2009 will bring, but I am oh so hopefull that it will be better! In some ways, it really cannot get any worse.

And, as I write this, it is snowing again. Messing up our plans for the day. SO sick of winter plans hinging on whether or not you can get out!!! DH nearly took a header yesterday just trying to bring some wood in for the stove. The last thing we need is him laid up and unable to work. Two weeks of the flu last month were bad enough!

I wish I were more hopeful as I look ahead to '09. I guess two years of being mentally and emotionally battered with "almost"-s has taken its toll on me. I just can't get excited about any of it anymore. I just want out. I need to turn that corner in my life and move on to the next thing.

On that note, I think I'll spend today scrapbooking more pictures from our Disney trip and listening to park music. It's the next best thing to being there!

New Year's Resolutions!

So I'm wondering....can you actually make "resolutions" that you have no control over the outcome?! I mean, we all resolve to lose weight in the new year. For the most part, the success or fail of that is 100% in our hands. But I'd like to resolve to relocate this year. I have NO control over that. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Nil.

Alas, without further ado, here are my 2009 Resolutions, for whatever it's worth:

1) To exercise more and eat healthier.
2) To write every day! Preferably in my journal, but blogging counts too.
3) To get out from under this house (!!!) and move to Florida. *
4) To de-clutter my house and my life and stop procrastinating.
5) To move to Florida.*
6) To finish all my unfinished scrapbook projects.
7) To move to Florida.*
8) To take charge of my spiritual life and get it back on track.
9) To take up jogging once the roads are clear....
10) To move to Florida.*

*No guarantee expressed or implied. Must take opportunities as they arise; no rainchecks will be given. Examples given are based on 2008 plans. Actual results may vary.

It was eight-below zero when I got up this morning.

Honestly does a body need more of a reason than that for getting the heck out of Dodge?!!!

Well, it's winter again....

....and so begins the slow decline in my sanity for the next 4 months. Three if I'm lucky.

Winter arrived with a bang here in NH, gracing us with an ice storm last week that left over 300,000 people without power at its peak (some are still without, 11 days later....). It was unprecedented in this state. And just when folks were starting to get back on their feet from that little gem, we got a major snowstorm exactly a week later, followed by a second one two days after that.

There are now a solid 2 feet of snow on the ground.....

Have mercy I need to get out of here!!!!!!!!!

Somewhere in Florida, there's a house. With a palm tree in the yard. With my name on it.
