I've seen several people write about this year and say it hasn't been as good as they had hoped. I think that's how I feel about it, too.
However it has been a year of some significance. Molly opened her store in 2006. My grandson, the youngest of my grandkids, started high school this year! My oldest granddaughter and Rick's grandson both turned 18 years old this year!!
I started this blog in 2006 and it has changed my life. I would recommend blogging to anyone and most especially to older people. Too many times once you hit a certain age, people think you're old and have nothing interesting to say. I love the blogging community because unless you want to divulge your age (or any other personal information) no one knows. We aren't judged on age or race or religion or sexual preferences or anything else when we are blogging. We can be anyone we want to be....real or otherwise. I choose to be the real me but no one has to do it that way.
HB and I had a few ups and downs with our house this year and I think in the long run they will turn out to be positive although at the time they sure didn't feel that way!
This year I started to get back to doing a little art and I plan to do even more next year. I challenged myself to join the Art Everyday group and was so happy that I did. I plan to continue to challenge myself in the coming year. I think that's the only way to grow and stay mentally healthy.
I put myself on a strict regimen with my eating this year and it's working for me. I plan to be very healthy in 2007. I want to have endless energy and be quite fit. I have been walking on the treadmill and I am adding some weights into the mix and I'm also doing The Five Rites but I'm only doing the ones "in preparation" and will work myself up to the others in time. Molly does the regular ones every day and she looks fantastic....of course, she looks fantastic no matter what!! I will begin posting some little tid bits of my progress each day or so. And here is my first one....
I did my morning pages, my 5 rites exercises and 1.5 miles on the treadmill this morning. I hope you can see the numbers in the photo which unfortunately is a bit blurry.
So that's just a bit of what happened to me in 2006. When I write here at the end of 2007 I expect to have so much to say that you'll get tired of reading it all!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!
