Happy New Year!

It's 2006. Where has the time gone? I've spent a lot of the last week in bed trying to recover from a horrible cold. My parents had the kids last night, but I didn't feel well enough to attend a party we'd been invited to. Instead we stayed home, watched Holiday Inn on DVD and drank champagne at 9:00 pm after we watched the ball drop in NY. Is this what being middle-aged means?

On the writing front, it took several games of Sudoko yesterday for things to percolate in my stuffed up head so I could figure out what was wrong with my story. But now I know and have started rewriting the entire proposal this morning. Unfortunately, I must start over. That's what I get for trying to unpack, get ready for Christmas, take care of sick kids and write all at the same time. Now to get three chapters and a synopsis written by the 13th.

New Year's resolutions:

1) Write everyday
2) Exercise regularly
3) Lose weight
4) Keep in better touch with friends
5) Be more patient with kids

I'm sure I'll think of more! What are your resolutions for 2006?
