Goodbye 2009

How do you celebrate New Year's Eve?

Over the years I've celebrated in many different ways. When hubby was overseas the kids and I celebrated alone, toasting each other with root beer floats. Together, we attended many gala celebrations in different places from the Seabee base to various private parties.

For twenty-three years we had our own residential care home and we celebrated with special treats and sparkling cider with the women who lived with us. Hubby and I would rent movies to watch.

Once again we're by ourselves (more or less, since we have relatives living next door)but we have no desire to party. We'll watch a movie and sleep through the end of 2009.

Neither of us make resolutions anymore, though we always hope to achieve certain things--of course I want to write a new book for each of my series, and I'll be busy promoting those that come out.

We hope to stay healthy and enjoy 2010.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm planning a quiet one, too.

For the past few years, I've gone to sleep early and set the alarm for 11:45, so I can watch the countdown.

Ridiculous, huh?

But I do like to watch the ball drop on TV.

Today I've been blogging about my challenges for the New Year, and those include my reading challenges and how I plan to document each of the books read, to help me keep track.
