Happy New Year 2007!!

I'm feeling hopeful about the new year. Optimistic. Refreshed. I'm excited. I feel full of potential to move forward and make some positive changes in my life. Some of which are way overdue.

  • One of which is to have Mia home within the next 365 days. I realize that this is completely out of my control but I have faith. Please let it be so.
  • I'm going to get healthy this year!! Once and for all. No more yo yo-ing up and down with the weight. I'm gonna get strong and fit so I can feel good. I want to be the best mom that I can which means taking care of myself, too. And I'm gonna make it up the Great Wall dammit!
  • I'm going to get my house in order. Get all the little things done that need to be done. Especially Mia's nursery! I can't wait to see that finished. At the rate you're going Connie, you should run out of projects soon. Maybe you can take a drive north and help a sista out!
  • I'm going to work my arse off to get as much of this adoption debt behind me. I'd like to start out my new life as a mom without all of that hanging over my head.
  • I'm going to make more of an effort with my friends. I'm starting to recognize that I've been isolating myself a lot here lately. I'm going to make more time and be a better friend this year.
  • I'm going to start a journal just to jot down a short note about what I've done every day and anything that I feel may be important at the time. I want to be able to look back and see what I was doing on the day that Mia was born and found. I hope I haven't procrastinated so much that I've already missed it.
  • I'm going to be spontaneous and have fun! This is my last year to be crazy and reckless. I'm gonna have to be a responsible adult soon.

I hope that you can all keep whatever new year resolutions you make for yourselves. I pray that 2007 will bring many positive changes for all of us. Especially those of us waiting for our babies. I never imagined that this silly, little blogging hobby would have such an impact on my life but it has. I'm constantly amazed at the connections I make and the support shown. I've made some new friendships that I know will last a lifetime. And I'm grateful for that. So to all of my bloggy buddies, real life friends and family, and strangers who just happen to find my life interesting.... I hope you continue to follow my crazy adventures as I travel this path to my daughter, Mia.

Happy New Year! 2007 is gonna be awesome!

I especially hope your first one comes true. I can't believe I have such a special way to start off the New Year this year.

Happy New Year to you too, my sistah-friend!!! We'll get our butts into shape together (watch for a new blogitty look at Weight For Grace!)... Then to celebrate our last year of "wild freedom", we can shave each others heads, get tattooed, and go naked hang-gliding!!!! Ok, I'll settle for a blogitty summit with you and the Con-ster instead (but I can't promise you that there won't be any tattoo's involed)...

Happy New Year Krista. I'm with you on getting fit and making it up the Great Wall! I'm determined as well. Here's hoping that we will both see our girls' faces at least by this time next year!

Happy New Year Krista! Great list! Hmmm...I can piggyback on yours as it sounds so similar to the thoughts I've had.

Had a wonderful 2007! Here's to having babies home in 2007! :o)

Many of our 'resolutions' are similar, I guess the knowledge you will be a mom does that to you!

I hope that 2007 is filled with giggles and laughter between your daughter and you!

Blogger just ate my big fat great (heehee) comment! Arrrggghh! Must work on frustration level.

Anyhoo...pretty much how I could have written most of those to-dos about myself (no surprise)

Oh...and that I need to loosen up a little because don't we all need a little Oscar in our lives? ;0)

Krista said...

Connie
LMFAO cuz no one else will get the Oscar comment 'cept me and you!

But yes you need an Oscar and so do I! Let's make that our new year resolution... LOL!

Jill and Jaap said...

You go girl! And definitely do all the wreckless you can! (safely that is!) Oops, I forgot your profession, so of course you won't do anything TOO CRAZY! Anyway, here's to a great new year, and hopefully to seeing a bunch of our little babies smiling faces sooner rather than later!
