It’s a New Year?

What happened to the old one?   It seems as though I just told everyone I was going to Colorado to see my son through serious back surgery and that was already a year ago.  Then there was the time consuming ill health of myself and my husband…we are doing fine now….but where oh where did our days go?   We only took our RV out once during the entire year!   I still have not taken down my Christmas tree and decorations!   And then…what did I do with my needlearts this year?  There is no list of “finishes.” 

I have spent the last few days blog surfing and I am SO IMPRESSED by all those people who have accomplished so much in the year 2009.   I can only pray that I might do half of the things that some of these people have done.   It is inspiring and overwhelming to say the least.   I haven’t even tried to compile a list of what I accomplished…I can only think of what I have not done.   Sounds like I need some positive thinking here.   I’d love to recreate my blog…but it all takes time?   I hope my friends don’t give up on my lack of accomplishments or lack of posting.  

I DO have a positive attitude for this year.   We will be healthy…I will be creative and I will have a list of accomplishments for 2010.   How’s that?

Amities, Averyclaire

    You did what you could with the circumstances you had. You managed to keep working, which is an accomplishment in itself. I hope you get more time this year to spend on doing the things you enjoy

    That sounds like a good plan for the year!

    I hope it is more settled for you, except for taking the RV out and about.

    Look forward to seeing what you get done.

    Happy new year! A new year – a fresh start. This is a chance to focus ahead. Bad times in the past don`t do away, they only get distanced. I embrace the new year, and hope the best for you and your family.

    It seems to me like you accomplished a lot last year–it may not be as tangible as a finished project but it’s a lot more important. Your “looking forward” attitude is a great one; you have a lot to look forward to! Best for 2010…Marjorie

    I think you did ok, some years are not meant to finish alot of tangible projects. I had about a 20 year span, where I wasn’t able to do ANY! In fact I am finishing putting on a soft frame around my very last crossstitch I finished in 1991, probably started it in 1989. and when I finish I am going to hang it on the wall even tho it looks dated and I’m not using those colours especially, it will still go somewhere.

    look forward to your retirement time, I am enjoying my “time off work”. amities dear friend.
