Well, Christmas has come and gone and I am soooooooooo tired. Work has been so busy this month, coupled with all the holiday preparations I feel like a ran a marathon. So in my mind, I will say I ran a marathon in 2008! LOL. It's Friday and I am working up a storm as we have a full day, thus for those who know me, know how sad it is that I could not go shopping the day after Christmas! I have so much planned to the coming year and I am going to work on one major item this year. I am going to get something, I hope, published in a scrapbooking magazine. I am going to focus as much attention as I can into getting a layout published. Of course, I hope to build my client list. I love the creative process of documenting not only my memories, but memories of others.
So I will bulldoz forward in 2009 and hope this year will be "My Year". But as I look forward to the new year, I look back on this year and remember a few people who helped me be who I am today.
Candice: She is the angel part of my consence. I bounce so many things off her, knowing I will get the answer that pushes back at the devil in me that so wants to come out. So in my mind, she is "An Angel". I couldn't work the way I do without her.
Candra: What a surpise I got when I met this "mississippi girl" WOW is all I can say. I felt a connection the first time I met her in a digital scrapbooking class I took from her. I bet she never thought she would meet this crazy, fun, work-a-holic blonde chick that day. But now I can say she is one of my closest friends and I know we will be friends for LIFE. Paris here we come!!!!
Debbie Sue: Debbie has been my friend for over 20 years, she is my longest friend (i cant say oldest friend, its soooo wrong). Without her I would laugh less, my nails and toes would be UGLY and my life would be so boring. When I need her she is there and I feel I take take take from her and never give back. We think alike and without her, I would get to sleep in till 530 am. So thanks for that workouts, the happy hours and the pretty nails. You ROCK!
Nancy: While I dont get to hang out with Nancy as much as I would like, I do think she is one person that sees right through me. I can't pull anything over on this gal. I think she has a lot to give, and holds it all together. The way she blogs and records memories of her children is so special that it makes me feel guilty that all I can do for her is put her ideas on paper. I think our friendship will continue to evolve and know if ever I need something, she will be there. Love you Nancy.
So as we approach New Years I look back on this great year and hope 2009 will be that much better. Of course it would be super if I could have Fridays off !!!!! But I gotta keep working on that. But maybe Obama will do that for me!
