HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

It’s that time for the year again, when we make our New Years Resolutions and try to start anew… Ads in the paper are filled with exercise equipment, storage and organizing boxes.

I heard from somewhere (I don’t remember where though) that however you entered the new year will be a reflection of the following year to come. I think that is how some traditions/superstitions came about like: having a pocketful of coins and/or a wallet-ful of bills will bring you wealth; 12 or 13 different round fruits will bring you prosperity. I also had this notion that things should be clean and tidy, all clothes washed, etc…

Well, if that was the case… I’m in trouble!… Why?…

(1) It’s 7am right now and I can’t get to sleep, due me screwed up sleeping schedule from the holidays and getting sick after Christmas. How am I ever gonna get up on time for work come Monday morning?

(2) My room is a pig sty :( I wanted to reconfigure my shelves and reorganized my room during my long holiday break… but I haven’t gotten around to it. Grrrrr!

(3) I also wanted to work on the garden and fix things up during my long holiday break, but I haven’t done that either.

(4) I brought a little bit of work home to do, since the week after our break will be a killer… well, I haven’t started on that…

(5) My lovelife… well… I don’t want to get into that now…

Anyways, I need to get off my lazy butt and get things done!

With all that said, I’m still optimistic. I still think 2010 will be a good year… I just need a kick start…

On a good note, I started one of my New Years Resolution early. Every New Year I’ve said I will try to stop smoking… well, I finally did starting on Oct 17, 2009!…

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!!
  • Giving up smoking is a Very Big Deal. If ALL you do in the way of self-improvement in 2010 is keep that going, you will have done well.

    (Have you ever tried to get rid of that rusty fungus on hippeastrum? I just gave mine a warm water bath per some internet instructions I found…)

    • Happy New Year Laura!!! You are right, it is a biggie… and it took a while for me to be able to quit… but I’m off it for good :)

      I don’t recall having a problem with rusty fungus on Hippeastrum.

  • Happy New Year, Joey, and Happy Birthday tomorrow! Quitting smoking is the best gift you’ll ever give yourself…I did it on the eve of my 30th birthday, 18.5 years ago, and never started up again. Stay strong!

    • Happy New Year to you and thank you for the birthday greeting :) I’m glad you never started up again. I think I will be able to do it. I was difficult though, after 18 year of smoking!
