Here's to love, luck, happiness, health, and success in the new year! I'm bringing it in quietly tonight, which is nice. I'll ease my way in and ease my way through. I'll invite an abundance of positive things into my life and I will tackle any obstacles with both strength and grace. I will make goals and achieve them. I will give, I will love, I will smile. I hope the same for you.
"Essential employee". Apparently that is what I am, as I was told to report to work today. 30" of snow, below freezing temperatures, but, hey, I'm essential! What ever happened to health and safety being our number one priority? Hmm.

I wouldn't necessarily say this is one of the best books I've read, but it is definitely one that made me want to keep reading. It is one that stays with me...like I lived it. So, maybe that means it is one of the best books I've read, because isn't that the point of a good story? It stays with you.
It was definitely a good idea to have a snack at Wegman's BEFORE I started my grocery shopping. Not only did it keep me from buying everything in sight, it also helped temper my aggravation with the hundreds of people who decided today was a good day to grocery shop.
I found this great app on Facebook that chooses random statuses that you posted this year and compiles them into a collage. Although this is not a photograph, I thought it would be a fun post as we near the end of the year. It was great looking back on all my status updates, seeing how my moods and interests changed from day to day.
What a beautiful night with my family! My mom surprised my step father with ornaments in memory of his parents and sister. The price of the ornaments go towards the Raritan Bay Medical Center where his family has always donated their time and money. The ornaments will be displayed there year-round.
For me, the best part was sitting down to dinner with everyone. We haven't all gotten together in so long, so it was nice to laugh and share old stories and toast to those who are watching over us. This has really been one of the best holiday season's I can remember and it's not over yet...
There was an exodus of birds from the trees Cuz they didn't know We were only pretending And the people all looked up and looked pleased
And the birds flew around
Like the whole world was ending
I don't think war is noble
And I don't like to think love is like war
