Happy New Year!!
Is everyone making their resolutions? Me? I'm a firm believer in making ones I know I won't break. For instance, one year, I resolved to try a shot of tequila. I'd never done one, and it sounded like something everyone should try at least once. A friend's dad showed me the "cool" way of holding the shot glass, the lemon and the salt all in one hand, so you can toss it back in a fluid motion. I'm going to confess, that one shot was probably all I'll ever do (margaritas are much better than shots LOL), but hey, I accomplished my New Year goal!
I took two weeks off from writing over the holidays...something I rarely, if ever, do. Okay, so I'll confess, the longer I was away from the computer, the more I found myself coming up with new ideas. I firmly wouldn't allow myself to open my word processor, so I'd jot them down in a notebook, which is now filled with ideas and bits of dialogue. I'm chomping at the bit to get back to the writing tomorrow. Which leads me to this year's resolution...
I'd love to say I plan weekly dates with my dh. And if you consider our Saturday shopping trips together (which we do), I'd say we're good to go. But hey, it's New Year's...I'm going for something a bit more difficult. How about, a big fancy, all out date with him? We have a gift certificate for a very nice Italian restaurant. So, to lead off my ‘07, we'll get all gussied up and go out WITH NO KIDS! Yep, thinking that's doable. LOL Okay, and I'll add to that. After the holiday writing break, I'm inclined to think that the occasional writing day off might be good for me, so I'm resolving to cut myself some slack. This year, I'll take a day off now and again to just hang and have fun!
There you are, my resolutions are taking time to smell the roses and a date. Not too bad. Hope you all have figured out what you plan to resolve for ‘07, and that it's an amazing, wonderful year for everyone!
