2014: Close family, Healthy family, Accomplished family.
Question: List what you’ve eaten for the past week.
2012: turkey, turkey, and more turkey. Love turkey sandwiches and lots left over from holiday. 🙂
2013: Turkey and too many trips to fast food hamburger places. We were lazy to cook after Christmas when the turkey ran out.
2014: Lasagne, salad, cucumbers, donuts, Pepsi, hamburger, chicken, little smokies, chili, candy, eggs, cereal, cookies. Did much better this holiday with the variety. 🙂
Question: What is your most cherished memory of this year?
2012: My oldest son graduating from high school. 🙂 Two graduated, two more to go!
2013: Finding out the daughter did get her Associates of Arts Degree from college. She achieved some of that while being deployed and stressed!
2014: Spending major holidays with kids and hubby. It won’t always happen as the family grows.
Question: What is your mission?
2012: To have more energy to do the things I need and want to accomplish. I will finish everything I start this year and some past starts! 🙂
2013: To write and publish my first novel. To make some money writing. To lose 50lbs.
2014: To love my family, be healthy, and provide for them. To get that first book published. Get over the fear of people not liking it.
2015: To be healthy, happy, and accomplished! 🙂 To lose another 30lbs. I lost 20lbs last year! Yay!!!
Question: Can people change?
2012: People can change but they have to want to change. And some change without trying to or noticing that they did. They have to care to change for themselves first.
2013: I believe they can if they really want to. It helps when people are there to believe in them.
2014: Yes, but others need to open their eyes and see that it is possible.
2015: Yes, hopefully for the better. The other way is not so good.
Question: What are you reading right now?
2012: Scarlett— love it! Had to read it after finishing Gone With The Wind. I had to know what they hoped would happen. The two authors’ writing is different but I enjoyed them.
2013: Several books at once. I never thought I would do that. Love reading again. Goal for year is 40 books.
2014: One book and one ebook. Goal is 52 books this year. (I only read 25, bummer.)
2015: One book and one ebook. I like the change from the electronic to the real deal of a book. Soon my creative cave will be done and I can bring the rest of my books from our other house. I use to buy them all the time but most I have never read. I have well over 1000 books. 🙂 I will probably bring only the hardback ones and the series paperback. I have tons of Harlequin books but think I will keep them at the other house. Way too many to bring here. Plus, need something there to read. 🙂 Goal this year is 40 but secretly hoping for more.
