Confetti, confetti, confetti, and a bit of champagne bubbles! It is a new year! And, please I ask that it be a little less eventful than last year. Well, eventful on the good things like vacation and new experiences is great, but spending hours in the hospital is something I can do without (unless I am pregnant and giving birth -- that will be okay).
I was contemplating putting down my resolutions, but decided I would be resolute in not listing them. Basically, my resolutions are things I need to do. I just need to get my butt in gear and take care of them. With my new job, a lovely husband, fantastic family and friends to support me, my list of "things-to-do-for-myself" should be easy to follow.
On the book front, I am currently rereading the entire Chronicles of Narnia while also reading Becoming Jane Austen. I went on a book-shopping spree yesterday at Changing Hands Bookstore to buy the books that were on my list. At 25% off everything in the store, it was hard to pass up. So, I will be relaying my reading adventures on my blog over the year.
On the music front. Well, I have found quite a few new albums to enjoy. Most recently, I am reveling in the cheer and happiness I feel when listening to Little Joy. Wonderful, wonderful album. I also have been enjoying Sharon and the Dap Kings, The Killers and Travis.
I wish everyone a wondrous 2009 full of new discoveries, adventures, memories and learning moments that help reveal yourself to others and you. My suggestion for getting off on the right foot: look at the stars more often, color with crayons once in a while, laugh with friends, and take time away from scheduling -- abandon yourself to a day or two without deadlines, text messages, phone calls or e-mails.
p.s. I have a confession...I developed a slight addiction to House over the Christmas weekend while they had a marathon on USA. What a great show. Other confessions...I am also happily watching the first season of Shameless (brilliant) and whiling away an hour or two every other day with Guitar Hero World Tour. Cheers!
