One Pooped Puppy.........

No, this is not my puppy. He's just illustrating my point.

Anybody else need a nap??

Did the holidays whip you down until you cried 'Uncle'?? Did me. And now here we are in a brand spanking New Year and it hardly seems possible 07 is gone! Where'd it go?

Did I have fun?

Did you?

I don't do resolutions. Waaaayyyy too depressing if I don't keep 'em. But I do like to make a few promises at the beginning of the year. Things like, read more. Take more walks. Hug my family more often. Try not to give advice that nobody really wants. (That's a toughie)..... What about you?

In the first week of this brand new year, are you making promises to you?

    I haven't been making resolutions, but did this year...some targets for me to aim for. Otherwise, I'll be wandering aimlessly.

    I don't know where 2007 went, or 2006 or 2005 for that matter. The years are passing too quickly now.

    Tired - yep. Took a nice long nap this afternoon :)

    For 2008, I will be working on a paranormal for Nocturne. Have two category-targeted romances to get out of the way. (One of them has finaled twice this fall in contests, so I need to be that sucker shined up and off to an editor even if the final judges don't request a full)

    Yes! I'm exhausted! The amazing thing is that this time, I've gone right back to writing. Which I sure was thanks to your advice, Maureen, so don't stop giving advice!

    I don't have set resolutions this year.

    Hey Cyndi......I like it! Setting goals is a good way to start off the year! And I want to be able to celebrate that first sale with you!!

    Aw, Jen.........thanks for that! Good to know SOMEBODY listened to me!!

    I'm utterly exhausted, but yes, I made a slew of resolutions. And so far, so good. ;-)

    Hey Erica.....yay you on the resolution front! I usually find a way to discount them in the very first week.....

    Hey, I'm late! Sorry. But I suddenly had this strange feeling that the earth was tipping on its axis...and now I know why. Maureen, NOT giving advice? Noooooooo way!!! LOL. Don't ever give that up!! How would I know what to do about anything?? :-)

    Happy New Year, everybody! My wish for y'all is that you always have a great friend who's willing to give you good advice...whether you want it or not!!
