While I try not to get caught up in the resolution frenzy, I do like the feeling of the new year. The idea of a fresh start is exciting and energizing. Really though, I tend to feel it more at the start of the school year than now. Now is just halfway through till school and seminary are over.
However, I do like planning for the year and anticipating changes. 2008 portends to be a very good year for us. We bought our tickets to California for spring break-10 days in the Bay Area-I'm very excited (we have to take advantage of my brother living there before he moves away in July...)! I have the marathon the end of March. My friend Jill and I are still talking about a trip to England in June, and I will probably be at Girl's Camp again. We figure that Jeff will probably be home from Panama right around the beginning of July. Johnathan will likely leave for his two years of missionary service some time in the late summer or early fall, and Sara will enter high school in the fall. I am teaching at all the Stitches Expos again, so I'll be traveling to NoCal in Feb., Chicago in Aug. and downtown Baltimore in Nov. . Eric continues to do well at work and is on track for Partnership late this year or early next.
So, to everyone who cares enough to check in on me, a belated Happy New Year! By the way, I am reading blogs, just not commenting much. I know how much I love comments though, so I will get 'round to it. I love interacting with all my blogging friends in this way, and truly enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas. Doing so always lifts me up and makes me feel warm and happy inside. Thanks for sharing so generously in this way.
