Thanks for a great 2008 folks. We made it another year, and we're alive! Let's hear it for 2009 and the theme many of us will be using as a mantra: 2009 Is Mine!
My parents got married on New Year's Eve. If my dad were still alive, they'd be celebrating their 38th anniversary. I always remember the day was significant for my parents.
I'll be on an airplane heading West. I will be at a party Wednesday night, where a new crush of mine will be in attendance. What's that SWV song, I Get So Weak... I hope I don't make a fool of myself, but I will say something. I'm always so shy, thinking I'm not worthy or cute enough, but I need to and will work on that in 2009... starting NYE night :-)
Whatever you do -- whether it's a loud party, loud church, or loud snoring in your bed at the midnight hour -- enjoy. Have fun.
Let's all get a little romantic and sentimental with Nancy Wilson's What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? It's a favorite of mine, my parents, and hopefully will become one of your favorites.
All the best!
