Happy New Year!!!! You guys are the best and I so appreciate you hanging out with me this past year. I hope your holidays have been full of joy. Mine were great. I promised to give you the details so here goes…
My husband was a very good boy this year. He bought me two tiffany lamps and a Kate Spade purse I mentioned once at a party. Can you believe that? I think I was more amazed that he’d actually listened to what I said than anything. And how he new exactly what purse it was, is still driving me crazy. He won’t tell. We spent part of the day here at home with my mom, dad and Grandma Irby (She’s Ms. Helen in the Charmed books) and then went to visit his side of the family at his sister’s house. (She only lives a few blocks away, so it’s not so bad.) I came back and took a two hour nap. Then I stared at my purse all night. The kids seemed to really enjoy the day and my husband was happy, so it was all good.
What are your plans to celebrate the New Year? We have three parties tonight and I can’t decide which ones to hit. I’m just grateful we have somewhere to go. We’d talked about doing another party like last year, but I just didn’t have the energy.
I’ve been chatting with the chicks from the witchy chicks blog and they gave some great ideas for wish/goal setting for the new year. I’m going to write everything down I wish would happen, anything I can imagine. Then I’ll seal it in an envelope, put it in a special box, and read it next year.
If you are a writer, don’t forget to sign up for my free workshop at http://www.candacehavens.com under workshops. We’re going to be doing Fast Draft, where you write your first draft in two weeks.
Drumroll please…. Our big winner this month for a free autographed book is PHENILA. Send me your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a copy of Evelyn Vaughn’s SOMETHING WICKED.
Thanks to everyone who participated. For January we’ll do the same thing. If you post, you go in a drawing for free books. I put your names on a list every time you post, cut them up and then draw one out o a hat.
Have a great one!
