The Post of the Year

It's January.  Already.  How'd that happen?  Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, and Christmas.  Done in an instant.  Notice I rank Black Friday right on up there in "holiday status".  Can't go a year without it...

Our holidays were nice.  I promised myself I'd NOT get sick and I pretty much accomplished that.  I may have lived with a headache for a few stretches of time, but the Lupus didn't get the best of me.  I'm grateful for that.  And for family that seems to understand my limitations.  In the new year, I am determined to be healthier and more conscious of each day. 

In the spirit of the new year, I want to do a repeat of something I posted last year.  It's interesting and thought provoking.  Here goes:


Best Day:   the day we flew into the Bahamas to celebrate my 40th birthday.

Worst Day: the day I dropped Zeke off for his first full day of Kindergarten.

Best Decision: to send to his current school and to allow him to do full time Kindergarten

Worst Decision: to ignore the water problem in our basement after a heavy rain.  That ignorance led to a problem with mold and caused us to have to rip up carpeting, have a mold specialist come in, and tons more work that is still ongoing that I don't even want to talk about because it still annoys and tortures me to this day. 

Best Realization: that I want to start my own business

Worst Realization: that the new Lupus drug that has been approved by the FDA won't be too much of a benefit to me.

Biggest Hope: that I actually get a paying gig this year with my new business

Biggest Fear:  getting sicker.  But I'm not going to let that happen and will be responsible and timely about all of my doctor's appointments to be sure of it.

People I can't live without: Paul & Zeke

People I can live without: dead weights in my life

Best Fashion Find: a great pair of jeans that I can dress up or down and the uber-fuzzy gloves that Pauly and Zeke gave me for Christmas.  Oh, and my new socks.  I love socks.  And scarves.  And purses.

Worst Fashion Find:  a bracelet that I thought I loved and now I think it looks ridiculous.

Fashion Obsession:  Still purses but moving into socks and jewelry too.

Fashion Hate:  tights with Uggs

Best Food/Drink Find:  Coke Zero which I desperately want to stop drinking.

Worst Food/Drink Find: - Cici's pizza.  The. Most. Disgusting. Food.  Ever.

Food/Drink Love:  sauteed spinach and artichokes at Bertucci's

Food/Drink Hate: any food with meat and any drink with milk

TV Love: Bridezillas, Jersey Shore, Big Brother, Real Housewives


Internet Love:

Internet Hate: Twitter (don't waste your time telling me that you're about to take out the recycles. I'm not about to care.)

Best Development:  Getting a part time job for about 5 minutes.

Worst Development:  realizing that the part time job I was so in love with was a complete waste of my time.

Best Investment: my Tiffany necklace .  Love it and wear it most days.

Worst Investment:  Most of the toys we've bought for Zeke this year.  All he wants to do is play basketball in the basement.

Best Travel:  Bahamas

Worst Travel:  none.  I love travel.

Personal Empowerment: turning 40 and not really giving a crap.

Personal Struggle:  letting Zeke grow up.

Best Accomplishment: Zeke and my marriage

Worst Failure:  trying to get Timmy healthier.  His poor little heart is still really bad.

How I'm Ending This Year:  hopeful, scared, determined. 

Happy 2011 everyone.  May your year be filled with love, laughter and light.
