Happy New Year!


Last week was “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” but what are your favorite 2008 memories?           

            LG~ Can’t say ’08 was one of the better ones overall, but I have fond memories of moving into this house (however temporary), an enjoyable “end of the school year” Luau, some cherished moments with friends, watching my daughter’s color guard performances, lost teeth, chorus and band concerts, and those scattered but incredible mommy moments that make the not so good times totally worthwhile.

            T~ My favorite memory was spending the summer at the pool with the children and having the opportunity to host our exchange students.  Also, the whole pumpkin carving afternoon was a blast.


What is the best thing you learned in 2008?

            LG~ That I’m tougher than I think, emotionally, and indeed, that which does not kill us makes us stronger (but not always better.)

            T~ How I think things are can differ greatly from other people’s perspective.


On a scale of 1-10, how good was your 2008?

            LG~ 4, give or take a number

            T~ 6, it had its moments


What is your wish for 2009?  What is your wish for someone else for 2009?

            LG~ My wish for myself is the same as I wish for everyone… finding that inner balance between what’s best for self and what’s best for the larger whole, then experiencing that reality in harmony.

            T~ My wish is to be settled.  I wish for someone else to find what they are looking for.


Where was the first place you ever passionately kissed?

            LG~ In the back of a movie theatre, Ocala, FL circa 1982; even now I can’t watch “Trading Places” without smiling.

T~ (smile, blush) In a car…


Bonus:  Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?  What is/are yours for 2009?

            LG~ Usually, yes; but I’ve been distracted so far this season, so I’m working on them…  They will be something in line with my “wish” stated above.

            T~ Yes, I make them occasionally, but I rarely end up sticking to them.  So this year I’d say I want to “get healthy.”  I’m not going to say “loose weight,” but I really want to find myself healthier this year.
