How much has your life changed this year???

I know mine has changed--a lot! I've switched jobs, moved out, went through emotional uproar, spent more money than I make, and been generally happy. I've also hopefully started the diet that will last until next year.

I've been kept busy with keeping up with the expectations of work, getting more assignments (means more $), and just 'keeping my head above water'. I'm praying for marriage perhaps in the next year (if he proposes now!). I've been resistant to praying for a long time (I'd been a Christian for a long time). Now I'm challenged to think through my thoughts while intimately praying through them, including those parts that are less desirable to be spoken out loud even in the head, let alone in a public place! I've cold-turkey on coffee for 2 weeks (normal is 2 cups/day); I've 'cheated', I go for 1 cup of tea after several days. The caffeine has been acting on my nerves lately. I used to write short, insightful comments until I put it off for awhile. Here's one that just suddenly 'popped' into my head: happiness and joy is sometimes one and the same thing - it' fleeting...the memory fades in one, while, in the other, the feeling bursts upon you just when you least expect it! (I've to learn to love surprises!, esp those of the kind that gives a person a secure feeling once in a while.)

I've been caffeine sober for a while, now, too. I think it's day 20. It's HARD! It's always nice to see you around, you're very memorable. Thanks for responding and he better propose---you're a keeper!!

I just can't believe how this yr went on, still have the Dec 31st 2006 celebration party fresh in my mind. I just enjoyed like anything that day and now its almost 2 mths left for next yr. I was travelling almost whole yr round, enjoyed gr8 time with my loving family and dearest friends, ofcourse had some hard times with inlaws but those just can be subtracted. I am expecting a baby by next yr, it's my first baby and so enjoying every bit of pregnancy and am being pampered a lot by almost everyone around. I really would cherish this yr ever.

My life is completely different today than it was at this time last year. Friday is actually the anniversary of when everything changed, and it's been a tough year. We certainly have learned and grown a lot, though. Last year at this time my husband was working for his father and making a really good amount of money. Without warning we were told that my husband's father sold his company, so we decided to start a landscape maintenance company. As with any new business this has been a year of struggle and growth, but we are on our way to good things!

Ooooh I feel for you with the new business. My mom started her own beauty salon the last year I lived with her. Good luck and I know you both are working so very hard.
