Happy New Year

Hello Everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been blogging as much as I was earlier in 2016. I had a very busy second half of the year and I am afraid that took most of my time. However, I am super excited about 2017 and I am in hopes you are as well! I have no clue what this year will bring, but I am ready to face it head on.

Although I do not typically make New Year’s Resolutions, this year I did and I am hoping to keep them (instead of giving them up for Lent like I usually do LOL.) I will be spending the next couple of weeks blogging some catch up columns I did not post last year and updating my current columns. I am hoping to do a massive Buy It, Borrow It or Bag It to keep everyone in the loop as to what I am reading and what I am excited about. I will also be re-posting some of my entries for A Catholic Moment, a blog I contribute to that offers daily reflections on the gospel readings. I only post every other Saturday, but if you like what you read, you can feel free to check  the site out and get some daily inspiration from a number of really great people!

Until next time, take it easy. Enjoy the time you have on this planet, have courage and be kind.

Fabulous Fridays #52ListsProject

Hey All!

I have decided to be part of this #52listproject for 2016 and I have decided to share my lists with all of you! I usually never get overly personal on my blog, but what the heck? It’s a new year so why not go for it and give you the inside track to my mind? (You may be sorry you entered! LOL) So here is the first list for winter: List all of your goals and dreams for the new year:

  • Lose 10 pounds
  • Study for the GRE test
  • Take the GRE test
  • Keep up with the housekeeping more regularly
  • Begin project that will serve as an outline for my new book.
  • Donate items on a monthly basis to the food pantry
  • Save money
  • Make regular donations to the NJTL
  • Eat healthier
  • Eat out no more than once a week
  • Write new history book with Vincent

Take action: What is the first step toward achieving your biggest goal?

I like to think of all of my goals as important, but I have been exercising, cooking dinner rather than going out and have been studying for the GRE test. I also bought items for the food pantry while I was at the grocery store. So…I’m well on my way! Feel free to make your own list and share it with me!

Until next time, keep rockin’
