Happy 2010!

I can't believe it's a new decade, not just a new year. It seemed like last year was Y2K. Time's flown.

I took a hiatus from blogging for most of December. But not because I was on holiday. Just the opposite. While most jobs close down or at least lighten up for the year end holidays, my day job gets crazy. We work extra-long hours. We come home not just tired but totally drained. We barely get time to go to the bathroom or grab a bite to eat.

Things should start getting back to normal. Now we'll get a chance to catch up on the mountains of paperwork that stacked up while the phones rang off the hook and emails filled our in boxes.

It may take me a little while to get rested up and renew my energy but soon, I hope to get back to normal blogging and writing.

Here are my New Year's resolutions:

Cut way back on soda.

Diet and excercise at least 5 days weekly to lose weight.

Write at least 2 sweet romances this year as well as several erotic romances.

Spend more time with my grandchildren.

Save more money. Spend less.

Keep up with my blog.

Stay in closer touch with family and friends.

Get back into doing genealogy.

The highlights of the past decade for me has been:

The birth of my granddaughter, C.

Being promoted to manager at my day job.

Losing 95 pounds.

American Idol.

Working with Total-E-Bound and The Wild Rose Press.

The friends I've made online and off.

What about you?

Yours sound great. I plan to slow it down a bit in 2010. Happy New Year! :)

Hi Ashley,

Happy New Year! I love your list. Mine includes breathing more, worrying less and reading more. :)

Holy crap! Congrats on the weight loss! And of course your new grandchild. Those are a lot of new goals - I would love to hear about any geneology things you learn.
