Last Post of 2010

Well. here we are again...another year has gone by and another is upon us. In some ways, 2010 felt like it flew by and in others, it felt like it would never end!! I am looking forward to 2011 for one. I always seem to be optimistic about a new year,thinking about the possibility of taking new chances, awaiting new opportunities and the wonder of new possibilities. I always feel like a new year is almost in a way, magical. I know that may seem silly but it is like the universe is giving us a brand new clean slate to work with. 2011 is like raw clay for us to mold and shape into our own personal experience. Whatever happened in 2010 won't seem to matter anymore because it will be 2011. 2011. Wow! When I was a kid, 2011 seemed sooo far away. I guess at the time, it was. lol

I guess I get a bit sentimental at this time of year. I look back on the fading year with fond, or maybe not so fond memories. I get nostalgic. I tend to think about my life more at this time of year and what I feel I have accomplished or haven't or would like to the following year. It is a time of reflection for me. The last couple of New Year's haven't been too glamourous , or exciting for me. As you may already know, my beloved mother passed away in June 2007. (3 weeks prior to her 83rd b-day) It was sudden and most unexpected and ever since then my holiday celebrations have been very low-key and quiet. It wasn't exactly planned that way. but rather it just seems to happen that way. This time of year, I know is difficult for a lot of people,myself included. It is the time I am reminded of my loss. I know life goes on. At times, it may seem like I don't realize that but I assure you I do. Life moves forward, but my pain has yet to. I was very close with my mom and I guess I took our relationship for granted because I never realized just how close I was with her or  just how much I loved her until she was gone. I  could dwell on this subject, but I won't. Tonight is supposed to be a night of celebration, so I say let's celebrate and be merry!! Dust off that vintage you had tucked away for a special occasion and pop that bad boy open!! Don't be shy!! I might have a drink or 2 myself when that ol' ball drops. Don't forget to grab your sweety  and plant one on them like you mean it, when that clock strikes 12. Have a ball!! Get crazy!! But be safe. Do not do anything stupid (well not dangerous stupid) like drink and drive. You want to make sure you live to see 2011. Since it getting late, I must dash. Besides I want me a kiss....it must be 12:00 somewhere already!! lol And remember if confetti doesn't fall out of your underwear, then you are NOT partying hard enough!! :)
Until next year...
