One of my New Year's Resolutions is to come back to Live Journal in 2010. I had thought there would be time enough for both LJ and Facebook, but as it turned out, FB used up all my social networking time. I think part of that was because it was a year of SO MANY reconnections, and there aren't too many people from my past or present left that I expect to come across, so I hope to better manage that time and split my efforts between the two sites.
2009 had a lot of lows, and I'm not going to miss it. There were some really good times, too, and I will try to only think of them when I reflect back, but mostly, I'm just going to try to look forward.
Another goal of mine is to take at least one picture per day, even if it's just from my camera phone. That sounds easier than losing weight, so I think it stands a real chance at sticking.
Charles is playing soccer on XBox. Dog is snoring after a stressful bout of fireworks that had her racing around in highly distressed circles. Cats are all asleep. I'm about to go to bed. We are rock stars.
I have one specific request for 2010 so far, and that is for Dick Clark to please retire and let Ryan Seacrest do the next countdown. That probably sounds more mean than it feels in my head, but man...the last 30 seconds of the year felt really uncomfortable. I'm glad he is feeling well enough to do the pre-recorded job, but it just seems like the time has come to pass that torch.
I love you people, you know that? Wishing you all only the very best things in the coming New Year!!
