Happy New Year to the one or two people who might actually be reading this. I am working on my list of resolutions for 2010. I am also thinking about movies I have seen and books I have read in 2009. Well, mostly I am looking forward to seeing Jackson on Sunday and to Las Vegas in two weeks.

I am listening to my favorite mix of music … Howlin Wolf, Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, and Peter Gabriel. But I wish for my family and friends a happy, healthy and prosperous 2010!



My New Year’s resolutions for 2009 are / were as follows:

  • Stay alive. UPDATE: CHECK: Yup, so far so good!
  • Love my family. UPDATE: CHECK!
  • Stay employed. UPDATE: CHECK, I changed jobs, but stayed employed.
  • Try to eat healthier – and try to eat fewer sweets. UPDATE: NEXT.
  • Organize my household, especially my office and our garage. UPDATE: NEXT.
  • Get my COMPTIA Security+ Certification. UPDATE: CHECK and DOUBLE CHECK. I did so much better that this .. I GOT MY CISSP!
  • Win the lottery. UPDATE: NOT. WELL – Perhaps I need to be more specific. WIN A MULTIMILLION DOLLAR lottery prize. This winning two-bucks at a time crap is no longer working for me!
  • Make a baby quilt for my grandchild to-be. UPDATE: CHECK! He is here!
  • Finish my Aunt’s quilt. UPDATE: CHECK. She loves it.
  • Become a grandma! UPDATE: CHECK! Jackson arrived on 30 June 2009.
  • Read War and Peace. UPDATE:  Failed, again. But I did read Diana Gabaldon’s An Echo in the Bone. All 832 pages, that’s gotta count for something, right?

Now, I need to think of some meaningful resolutions for 2010. Any ideas?

Hello world!

Okay, so I finally got with the program and moved the tired ole to a WordPress site.
