I hope you all had a wonderful end to 2007 and beginning to 2008... mine wasn't very glamorous as I had flu-like symptoms and spent a lot of my evening blowing my nose, napping and praying to the porcelain gods... but I did manage to make it over to some friends' house (with my wonderful husband's help) and ring in the new year with Dick Clark (that poor guy), a silver party hat and lei, a yummy cup of Strawberry Jell-O and a kiss on the forehead.
So far this year is off to a rocky start; I was sick, my supervisor/boss was offered a job at another company and he’s also having family issues so he’s taking leave from his current job (so I’m stuck to deal with some choice co-workers all by myself for an indefinite amount of time), one of my friends had her fiancé call of their engagement (and relationship) just months before the wedding which I was a bridesmaid in, and I am on a diet. Ironically, I started the diet because I was told by the bride’s step-mother that I needed to lose three inches off my waist to fit into the bridesmaid dress…
There are also some wonderful things that I have to look forward to this year: being the Matron of Honor in one of my best friend’s wedding, looking totally hot if I stick with Weight Watchers, more great work experience, my first wedding anniversary with my prince charming, earning vacation hours at a rate of 3.72 hours every two weeks, becoming a certified volunteer manager, watching a younger sister graduate from high school and getting to be there for her through her first semester of college (I hope she pledges ZTA!), initiating and re-installing my collegiate ZTA chapter, Dave being done with his LAST college class, my mother turning the big 5-0 (but she won’t admit this yet), spring/summer trips with friends and family, and watching my family and friends’ lives change throughout the year!
I hope that you, too, have a wonderful 2008! Let’s keep in touch!
