Predictions for a New Year

So far this year feels pretty much like last year, but I guess it has only been a day. However, there were a lot of little things that happened today that I could interpret as good omens. Lets start with the best little thing ever: Dan let me sleep in until 10:00am. I felt like a new woman when I finally woke up.

Prediction: I will have more energy and be more efficient in 2009.

As soon as I woke up, I had a chapter for one of the books I'm working on in my mind. I started writing, and although I was interrupted in 20 minutes, I was able to go back to it later and write some more.

Prediction: I will be creative and act on my creativity this year. This will lead to final products popping out left and right. (Books, paintings, dresses, music, etc.)

Dan and I played some round-robin tennis with my sister Lori and her husband Billy and our friends John and Karen. I hadn't played in at least 3 years, and I never learned any technique or anything. I thought I was going to be embarrassingly terrible, but I surprised myself. I mean I wasn't Venus Williams or anything, but I didn't hit anyone, and I returned about 85% of the balls that came my way. My serve wasn't great, but the ball made it into the correct boundaries most of the time. I've always had pretty good reflexes, and I think this saves me whenever I play any sport with the exception of golf. I have no reflexes for golf.

Prediction: I will not play golf in 2009. But I will exercise more.

Asher gave me a lot of hugs today. He is happy and carefree and getting more communicative. He tells me when he wants more of something (finally!) and he knows lots of words. When I was playing Wii bowling he was copying my every move. He is a cute sweet little man, although he can get frustrated if I refuse to give him what he wants.

Prediction: Asher will grow up this year. Our relationship will get stronger and we will understand each other better.

My sister Tracy made us some delicious and nutritious dinner tonight. It was sooo tasty that Dan was practically licking the pan.

Prediction: We will eat food that is yummy and good for us. It may or may not come from my efforts.

Well, that is all for now. I hope my psychic forces are working correctly tonight. I don't want to make resolutions, but I don't mind WILLING a few things to happen.

Glad you guys liked the dinner. Although it is a lot of effort, it is one of my favorite things to make. So I only make it for the people I like. :o) Anyway... you are so creative and always using it, so I don't know what you are talking about. I am always wishing I could be more like my sisters. You are all so talented. And Asher is really great. I am going to miss you guys a lot. It has been a really fun two weeks! I wish I were closer and we could do this more. Love you.
