Welcome to 2010

Party like it’s Y2K10! I totally stole that so I should definitely not take credit for it. It came from a friend of a friend and it made me laugh so I appropriated it.

It’s now 1am MST. The ball has dropped, champagne has been drunk, horns have been blown, silly hats have been worn, and the New Year has been toasted. I am snuggled warm and toasty on my couch with my lap top trying to convince my kitty boy that I still love him even though I was out later than usual and his ten o’clock snack became a midnight snack tonight. He’s not having it right now and is giving me the cold shoulder. Since Wilson is leaving on my own, I thought there was no better time than now to write this, my first post of 2010.

Tonight I had the pleasure of ringing in the New Year with my friend Renee and our friend Amy and our other friend Amie. (Is it just me or are you all thinking about the “Newhart Show” with Larry and his brother Darrel and his other brother Darrel? If you weren’t, you are now, huh?) Anyway, I received a text from Renee this morning asking me if I wanted to join them. I haven't talked to Renee is ages so I was thrilled. It was just what I needed at the end of this year. So, I joined them as the Philharmonic provided fabulous music and then we went in search of a place to watch the ball drop.

As we waited for midnight we talked about goals for 2010. I had to laugh when I discovered that Amy and I share three objectives this year. The amazing thing about this is that Amy and I haven’t really spent any time together for a long time. We just happen to be on the same wave length on what’s important at this point in time.

All week I have been thinking about what my fifth should be. You know how I am. I have four and there just seems to be the need to have a nice prime number like five. Tonight the last goal suddenly became clear to me. Since I am really feeling the accountability thing these days I decided I would let you all join me in my quest by sending my list of desired accomplishments out into cyberspace to make them real.

So, anyhoo, here goes with the five things I am working to accomplish in Y2K10:

1) Finish writing/editing/revising my novel in time to submit it to Operation First Novel

2) Regaining my physical fitness and getting my health back on track

3) Working through Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover” in a quest to become more financially fit

4) Market the Lewy Body Support Group I would like to start in order to support others who are walking that road

5) Kiss a stranger (you had to be there to get this one)

There you have it. The big five. My prime targets. ( Smile, pun intended!) The holy grails of 2010. Feel free to ask me how I am progressing and to share your goals for the New Year.


  1. Wow, Tammie! Now they are all out there and in cyberspace.. you're the first one to put that 5th out there for all to see.. LOL!! :0)

  2. This is a great list! I'm still thinking about what should be my fifth (since your fifth is my fourth). New Years was awesome! It was great to see you and catch up!
    Amy : )

  3. Yep, my Daddy thinks I have gone off the deep end with #5!
