Christmas 2009 was the first time in a loooooooong time that I did not get any of these two things for presents: (1) a planner, and (2) fruitcake. Can anyone tell me why there is such fruitcake hate? I <3 fruitcake. Well, only the good kind, the one without too many green jelly things, and the one that doesn’t taste like it was soaked too long in brandy.
But this post isn’t about Christmas presents. It’s about the new year. Hey guys, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can you believe it’s 2010? Crazy. Last year just flew right on by.
This year, I resolve not to make any resolutions. It’s like setting myself up for failure. But I will try my best to do two things:
1. Take things day by day. Planning for tomorrow is wonderful, but I shouldn’t lose sight of the good things right now. So I’ll do my best to keep working towards a great future, but make sure I’m having an even greater time TODAY.
2. Remember that it’s all about perspective. A situation can be changed depending on outlook and how we react, so I’ll try to take deep breaths before going negative on something. Let’s keep the positivity alive in 2010!
Maybe that’s why I don’t have a planner this year. And maybe, I don’t have fruitcake because it’s not very good for my health. How’s that for taking things a day at a time and using perspective? Haha!
Happy new year everyone!

Happy new year Toni!
I think our new year today is very special for we welcomed the year with our little one. I was still on my last trimester when I celebrated it last year.

Happy New Year Toni! May you and your family have a fruitful 2010! I’m one of the few who like fruitcake. We received one this year. I think it will take a while to finish it since I’m the only one in the house who cares for fruitcake.
