Happy New Year!!!

I've been invited to a few parties but the older I get the less I want to go out on New Year's Eve. There are so many drunks on the road and so many people forcing themselves to get out and do something and be somewhere when the clock strikes midnight on the last day of the year. I'm perfectly happy to stay home and watch the ball drop in Times Square from my comfortable bed so that's what B and I are planning to do. Exciting stuff, huh?

Looking back on 2009 I realize I was pretty miserable for most of it with tons of work related stress and family drama but since I got laid off in November I've been seeing things in a whole new light. I feel blessed to be able to collect (f)unemployment (although I haven't gotten a check YET) and have the time to decide where I want to spend my working days. I know I don't want to ever work in a law firm again and I'm trying to figure out how to use my skills and collect a paycheck without paying for it with soul sucking stress and aggravation.
I'm excited to see what 2010 brings. As I've said before, I'm not much of a resolution person. My resolutions are goals I am constantly striving for every day, week, month, year, decade ... lifetime. Learn to live every single day to the fullest. Be healthy, be happy, love and be loved .... what else is there?
Thank you for joining me on this journey and I wish you all a very Happy New Year. I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us. ENJOY!


  1. Mu hubby and I stayed in for New Year's this year and we had fun and were so comfortable too. I think we may just do that every year. Happy New Year!! I wish you much success in your goals for the year!

  2. Happy New Year! I think this is going to be a year of fun and discovery for both of us!

  3. For us, there was a possibility of freezing rain and the streets were slippery anyway with snow slush, so we just decided to be quiet at home. Watched the ball drop, watched Galaxy Quest and laughed and laughed. There's lots to be said for staying home with loved ones!

    Happy New Year!

  4. I am excited for all that you will achieve in 2010. Knowing what you don't want out of life will only help you discovery what you DO want!

    Here to all of us in 2010!


  5. Happy 2010 to you my dear. I hope the new year rocks it out for you because you totally deserve that.

  6. We stayed home as well and am so happy we did so. I'd prefer to stay home and celebrate safely with my favorite people around me!

  7. I stayed in for New Year's too! I wouldn't have it any other way. So glad to see you're still here in the blog world! Thanks for the comment, it really meant a lot!

  8. Yeah... I also don't like going out much. In fact, I slept through the New Year. Hehehe.
