Girls Write Out
Saturday, December 31, 2005

2006 is going to be a great year! I can feel it. Coffee shops are popping up all over America and they’re finding new creative ways to put chocolate into their drinks.

Life is good.

Okay, admittedly, I struggle just a tad with remembering to write the new year on my checks. However, my check writing days are at a minimum now. I just zip in that debit card and I’m good to go. No date line where I goof up more checks than my salary can cover just to get the right year put in. So is that good news or what?!

Things are looking up in my world.

Let’s see, in 2006 more people will turn fifty, and that just makes me happy. Misery loves company and all that.

My husband and I will hit 31 years (yikes!) of wedded bliss!

Our daughter will turn 29 and our son will turn 27, doggone ‘em.

Our granddaughters will grow another inch or two and THEY will teach ME new things on the computer.

I’ll have more gray hairs to cover. But the good news is I still have hair--and when that’s gone, I’ll have my red hats.

More diet plans will come and go from my life with little or no effect.

I read a quote somewhere that said, "The difference between who you are now and who you will be in five years depends on two things: the people you meet and the books you read."

It is my prayer that I will not only read something that will change my life this year, but that I’ll write something that will encourage another on her journey.

Honestly, I feel confident about 2006. After all, as far as I know, there’s no shortage of chocolate.

Oh yeah, it’s gonna be a good year.

Thanks for the New Year wishes! I wish you all the same! We plan to go to our daughter's house, spend time with her family and our son's family, eat like there's no tomorrow, spoil the grandkids, and be home safely tucked in bed by 9:00. Okay, maybe we'll go crazy wild and stay up until 10:00.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy new year, all of you! I pray doors thrown wide open in the direction God has for all of you, and that you'll grow and mature in your writing.

Di, I never thought the day would come when we went to bed before 12 on New Year's Eve but it's beginning to be like that for us. LOL

Happy New Year everyone! We're celebrating at home too, though we will probably all make it to midnight!

Happy New Year! Three kids, three extras sleeping over. Should be some crazy night.

I just finished up my novel yesterday (okay, without all the edits), so the year's looking up already :-)

Thanks for this blog. I enjoy checking in on all your adventures.
