Bring It On 2011!
Hi Everyone! I wanted to start the blog off wishing my brother a happy birthday!!! I know he probably won’t read this (which may be better in case I embarrass him) but he is so very special to me and I can’t believe he is 17 years old. With each day he looks more and more grown up and I remember the day he was born and when he was just a little boy and all that seems like just yesterday. I haven’t always been the best sister (my brother is 10 years younger than me so he saw the brunt of my teenage years) but we are very close now and he has developed into a wonderful person and he is one of my best friends! Have a great birthday David and quit trying to rush everything!!! If I know him, he’s already thinking about next year when he turns 18.
Whew, I may or may not have choked up writing that…so…moving on. I don’t really have too much today. This will be the last blog of 2010…the year has gone by crazy fast but it seems that every year goes by fast now. I maintained my resolution of losing weight and I will go ahead and put that down as a resolution again for 2011. Hopefully, I will be right on track within a couple of weeks. I am going to weigh tomorrow and then be back on January 2nd…after all the holidays and debauchery are over…I will miss the breakfast food and dessert and snacks…the cheese, the sausage, the holiday “spirits” and chocolate…BUT…I will look and feel healthier so that’s what matters. I do hope that you will stick with me another year…at least to see what happens. I’m sure I’ve told you multiple times but my first goal of 2011 will be to get down to a weight that is at or below the weight that my driver’s license has on it. I have to renew on my birthday in May and I’ve been a pathological liar for years and I am done with that so I will be talking about my progress towards that goal. As usual, I hope to write more and make progress figuring out what exactly it is I want to do next and I want to make the appropriate steps to get to that ultimate goal. If the beginning of a new year does nothing else, it shows you just how much time we don’t have and how short life can be…if we have dreams we want to accomplish, we need to get going because before you know it, it could be 5, 10, 20 years down the road and you haven’t gotten what you want out of life...so…even though I can’t think of an appropriate slogan for 2011 yet (not a lot of great stuff that rhymes with eleven and since I don’t want to go to heaven in eleven, the slogan campaign for 2011 is still in progress), I am hoping it’s a year full of love and progress and weight loss!!! I hope you all make steps towards your goals and dreams in 2011 as well!
To Everyone: Have a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
See you in 2011!!! Bye!

we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.” Auld Lang Syne-Robert Burns
