I do have to admit that 2010, in my book, went by rather quickly after my 40th birthday came and went this year. I cannot believe that today is the final day of the year 2010 and tomorrow is January 1, 2011! I do not have any New Years resolutions because I will end up breaking them or not carry them out to the full extent so I no longer make resolutions. I do not make promises unless I can keep them and carry them through and that is how I believe resolutions are as well … promises. I do not know what other people think about resolutions and that is okay. Anyway…
For the rest of my day, I have had my shower this morning. I am not going to do much today. I have decided to bring in the New Year by watching the Disney Channel’s picked New Year programs with Shake It Up New Year’s program, do some journaling, reading, and snuggling with Bing Crosby the kitty, and take it easy. My dishes and counters were done yesterday. KH came over to help me with my shower today and brought some deviled eggs … yum!. I think that I will have the 2nd Harry Potter book read and start my 3rd book before Monday…since now it is only Friday. I am also going to call my friends RB, JB, and JW tonight and do our New Year countdown together over the phone, and then I will go to sleep for the night. No New Years Eve party tonight. I am going to order a calzone and chicken strips for supper tonight as a New Years treat for myself. My pizza will have spinach, garlic, cheese, and tomatoes … yum! After bringing in the New Year, I am heading to bed for the night. I do plan on taking this weekend to sleep in if I am able to since I get up between 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. most mornings now-a-days.
A Quick Note
Starting tomorrow, with a little taste of it this month, I am going to do something different with my Dear Diary journal entries. A new year brings on a new start for me so why not be different in my journaling in 2011. I do hope the best for everyone here at Dear Diary, my friends and family, and my neighbors here at TM have a wonderful New Year and the new year 2011 finds happiness, joys, new experiences, and newness in your lives. God bless!
Be Back Tomorrow
Will be back tomorrow, 1/1/11! Good night Dear Diary! God bless!
I did not sleep that well last night in bed but I did try from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. before romping out into the living room to finish sleeping – if sleep came that is. It was a very tough night last night but I believe I will sleep better tonight either way. I kept waking up to noises and sounds I am so familiar with in my home or what goes on in the building at night but having noisy neighbors do not help much, either, but right now my neighbor above me is quiet – for once, lol. She has been noisy lately for some reason and I am not going to speculate or assume it is being done so on purpose and confront about it right now. Her cat can be very playful at night lately romping and running about the apartment making noises and bangs from time to time. The walls and ceilings are thin and noise carries from one end of the building to the other beautifully around here, lol, and I am working on my 13 year as of March or April of 2011.
A very early morning for me. Not 8:30 – 9 a.m. this morning, either. I got up at 7:30 – 7:45 a.m. this morning to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cartoon for kids. I decided to get up anyway, get out of my pajamas and get ready for my day despite the earliness of my morning today. I am not upset or anything but I just did not sleep the greatest last night because I have a dratted cold virus with a little fever yet but fever is not as bad as it has been the past three days or now. Anyway, today I am going to do the dishes and counter tops but I do not have a whole lot of ambition at the moment, lol. They have to be done. I am recording some TV programs on Disney right now and watching The Polar Express this morning even though Christmas is over and today and tomorrow are the two last days of 2010 and December. I will start my dishes by having them soak in real hot soapy water now I guess. It is break time for the movie anyway. Movie is back on – recorded – so I have some dishes soaking in real hot water right now and back to my movie.
The Cold Weather – Winter…
I do not like the cold weather much. I do not like extreme heat either to be very honest here. Anyway, I know it is early yet but I am thinking of Spring when the weather gets warmer and the cold disappears slowly but surely as Spring comes. I have always thought that winter, even though the falling snow can be beautiful, winter is a dreary season because of the grayness than winter brings more often. i am always happy to see the sunshine beam into the windows of my apartment but not today – grayness has clouded the skies today with light drizzle and rain. I am doing fine otherwise.
More later in the day … after I wake up some more if that does happen.
