Sorry I've been gone so long. I missed you all. I've found a couple of minutes here and there to pop in on a few of you, but mostly I've been MIA. AWOL. Whatever alphabet-soup acronym you wish to use to say, "She's been gone an awfully long time."
I hope you all had a great Christmas, Hannukah, Festivus, or whatever other holiday or non-holiday you choose to celebrate.
There is one holiday that all of us in America will celebrate, or at least survive, this week: New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
I, for one, am looking forward to 2010 on the theory that it just *has to* be better than 2009. Not that 2009 was all bad. In many ways it was better than 2008, for me. It had its low points, though, so I'm hoping for a better year in 2010. And I believe it will be better!
I think, and believe, that the stimulus plan and other policies of the new administration are helping, and that the economy will improve - slowly, perhaps, but still, it will improve - so that will be better.
I hope, and believe, that my clients will have better employment prospects and be able to pay their bills, so that will be better.
I hope, and believe, that I will not have any more dying relatives (or pets!), so that will be better.
I hope my family and I will stay healthy, so that will be good, too.
And I wish the very best for all of you, too. Here's to health, happiness, and lots of fun!
To try to make sure it happens, let's all remember to eat our black-eyed peas this year!! (Click the link for an explanation).
