December 27, 2009 - It is 2:10am and I am sitting on the edge of the living room couch watching television and thinking of all I still want to do before this year ends. I should sleep but I am really not tired. A late afternoon nap has thrown my circadian rhythm off and my thoughts race ahead of my ability to concentrate on them. I know in addition to my starting my second semester of school this January, I want to get back into shape and reinvigorate my weight loss momentum. 2010 is the year I finish this house. On July 1st we will have lived in Rockford for 20 years and I want to celebrate this anniversary by redoing our home and property from one end and corner to the other. I have six monthes to do this.
This has been a remarkable year of highs and lows. Stephan & Ashley getting engaged; returning to school; successfully continuing my weight loss and fitness plan; becoming even closer to my husband; & watching as my kids continue to embrace their adulthood. Humble in the knowledge that in all these achievements it was our combined efforts that insured their respective accomplishment. God bestows his blessing...and we respond and are graced. As this first decade of the 21st Century draws to a close, I am committed to making this the best time of my life. Over these next few days I will continue to ponder the implications and details of what this year has meant to us and also what, in the specific, I can do to make sure that my goals become for me, attainments.
