Too tired to look back

I was planning a year in review post for tonight.  But I'm too tired to think back about the last year.  It's been a busy, sometimes stressful year.  Many great things have been accomplished and many more wait to be done  Several things have been left unfinished.  But now, I'm too tired to think about it.  I woke up too early this morning and couldn't fall back asleep.  Work has been unusually busy for this time of year and many, many people are in great distress (sadly, a sign of the times, I fear).
I work tomorrow and I've got a great activity planned for my patient groups.  Not quite a traditional goal setting activity but looking at taking action to make life changes.  I think I'll play along.
But, even though I'm tired, I'm so excited!  After tomorrow I've got 8 days off with no definite plans.  Woo Hoo!  I'll be sure to do a post on my goals and dreams for the new year but I also hope to do lots of sewing, some baking and, gasp, maybe even some reading for fun!!
And, of course, I'll announce the winners of the giveaway.


  1. Hi there,

    I just can't believe how this year has flown by. Here it has been a busy and stressful year. I am excited for a New Beginning. :)

    Your post got me into the thinking mode. Thinking of goals. I stopped really making goals cause I always 'blow it' before the first week is over. I am going to try again. :)

    Happy New Year to you and your family. Take care, Janet W.

  2. Hope you have a great, at least less stressful, 2012!

  3. Happy New Year Judy
    I know you are looking forward to that vacation time. I hope you find time to actually relax!

  4. I'm with you--no time to look back. I've been eating like there is no anticipation for a cleaner, brighter tomorrow. goodbye stress! (I wish us both luck with this wish!)

  5. JUDY!! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!! I would have to sit for an hour to remember things that happened in 2011. It really wasn't a bad year for us, thank goodness. Enjoy your 8 wonderful days!! ...debbie

  6. Eight days off! WA-hoo! I know you'll enjoy it to the utmost. Just don't wear yourself out doing it!

    Happy, happy new year to you and yours! And may 2012 contain no plumbing problems.

  7. Janet- I've never been a fan of the 'new year's resolution' because I think most people fail at them. I'm not convinced that Jan 1 is any type of magical day for goal setting. I've got an ongoing master list of goals. I just reflect on where I'm going every now and then.
    Phelan- Thanks for stopping in! I hope this year is peaceful and less stressful for you as well.
    Linda- Don't worry- I'll find time to do absolutely nothing!
    Dmarie- When you figure out the 'goodbye stress' thing- please give me a clue!!!
    Debbie- I'm glad you have had a good year. All in all, I can't complain too much. Have a great 2012.
    Mama Pea- ah, you know me too well.
    And AMEN to no plumbing problems!! LOL.

  8. Happy New Year!

    Yes, I have to second that 2011 was busy and stressful. I really hope to enjoy 2012 a bit more.

    Best wishes!

  9. Eight days off--that's awesome! Sounds like you need the down time too.

    Here's hoping 2012 proves to be less stressful for you.

  10. Exactly what I was thinking, I'd look back too if I'd had the time yet LOL!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
