Happy New Year


"The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time".  -- Abraham Lincoln

Goodbye 2014 -- You were the year with probably the most change in my life.  My 30 year career at JPMorgan came to an end.  Gary and I finally purchased our first home.  And my beloved Grandma died in a car accident.

I'm looking forward to 2015.  First on my list is looking for a new job.  I recently went to New Orleans and I had my palm read (a first).  The palm reader said I would have two major careers; so duh I don't think I'm going to looking for jobs in the banking industry.  This time around I want to work in a job where I feel like I'm helping people.

Secondly I going to continue meeting with a personal trainer twice a week.  I've had some amazing results for the several months I've been working with her.  I'm getting strong and building up endurance.  I actually enjoy the workout sessions.  However, my eating habits have to change.  I need to get back on a plan.

With the death of Grandma coming so quickly and without warning; I do want to spend more time with family and friends because you just never know what tomorrow will bring.  We all have a tendency to take others for granted.  I know with my Grandma, she had been with me for 58 years. She was very healthy and I just didn't expect her to leave my life so quickly.  I wish I had done more with her.  I'm not going to let that happen again.

New Year's eve was different this year.  Alex went to a party at a friend's home and Gary had to work; so I went to my Mom's house to play games with her and my sisters.

We got my Mom; and she lost it for a moment.  It was a good thing.





What's in store for your New Year?  Please let me know...

I'm very sorry you lost your grandmother in such a sudden way this year. As for the upcoming year, I have no idea what's in store. :)
