Theme verse for 2009:
"Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past.
"Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert."

- Finish what I started in 2008. :o)

b. The sewing desk…the part that was just about finished is still just about finished. I WILL FINISH it in 2009.
c. I got my wisdom teeth pulled so I can get my teeth straightened, among other reasons – so that project continues.
- Be ticket free
a. I got TWO tickets in 2008. UGH!
- Lose weight – OF COURSE IT HAS TO BE ON THE LIST
a. I have INICIATIVE that goes way into the year! That always helps!
b. I also have a goal and timeline, but really why would I share that here? That's BORING!
- Make a quilt (not a rag quilt but a REAL quilt)
a. I have a pattern picked out. Just got to give it a go (after I finish the sewing desk).
So there you have it folks. Happy New Year!
