Girls Write Out

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Whoohoooo!!! Another year! This year I’m going to lose 35 pounds, exercise more, spend less time on email, read more, eat less, cook more, study more, and give up chocolate.

Okay, so I lied.

I’ll slug along for another year, hopefully lose the same five pounds I’ve been tossing around for the past ten years (and ignore the other thirty pounds that have been following me since 1995). I’ll cut my email down by, oh, I don’t know, maybe one and a half minutes a day. I’ll walk on the treadmill, say, once a month (hey, it beats my current physical workout of walking to the refrigerator). As to the chocolate part, it ain’t gonna happen. Chocolate has been my friend for years, and we’re not about to part company now.

Still, the truth is I do have some resolutions planned. I plan to laugh more, feel more, smell more, see more, dig deeper into spiritual things and just plain enjoy the journey more this year than ever before.

So how about you? What kind of resolutions are you tackling this year? Please, don’t anyone tell me you’re giving up chocolate. It would depress me, and well, this is New Year’s Day and all.

P.S. Hot Tropics & Cold Feet just hit the store shelves! Free copies to the first five people who email me privately at:

Well, I pulled out my New Year's resolution list from 2006 to see how I'd done this year. Not very well. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to have all the same resolutions for 2007....But the good news is, I just had to cross out "2006" and write in "2007" on the list, so that saved me time. LOL.

Blessings on you in 2007, Diann (and to the other "girls write out" girls)!

I love your resolution to enjoy the journey more this year! :)

My husband and I are missionaries and will be moving to Africa this year. I'm terrified of the food so hopefully I'll lose weight. I did find out you can get coffee and chocolate in Africa. Whew. That's a load off!!

Enjoy 2007!

2006 was such an up and down ride, including a first contract, I can hardly wait to see what the Lord has in store for 2007. For one, I hope for closer friendships. I'm so blessed to get to "know" peeps in the writing world.

Happy New Year GWO! I love reading about your daily lives.

Thanks to all who responded for my book. I'll be sending out the copies soon!

ROTFLOL, Pam! That is a positive spin if I've ever heard one! You go, girl!

Oh WOW, blessings on your journey, Dana! Keep us posted, okay?

It's a great journey, isn't it, Eileen? Wishing God's best for you this year!

You are SO RIGHT, Ane!! What was I thinking? Of course, TASTE more is at the top of my list. *g*

Great resolutions, Di. Don't see the bar too high. LOL.

I resolve to be resolved.

Love, Rachel

Ooo, I forgot to say congrats on Hot Tropics and Cold Feet. I had a preview and it's very funny, y'all. Very, very good read!

Hey Diann! Thanks for the encouragement. I'll be checking in on the blog and keeping up with you (and so I know what books to ask for from those who want to send care packages). Visit our website any time and my blog where I document our journey into missions (after leaving my CPA job) Thanks for the interest and encouragement. We're super excited!

Thank each of you wonderful authors for allowing God to use you for 'our' benefit. :) I sure am grateful for you!!
