The Last Day

FIRST LET ME ANNOUNCE! I get to talk to Marie Osmond on the QVC channel at 10:40PM on New Years Day. How cool is that?
I'll be calling in by phone so you will not see me but can hear me. ha.
So, if you want to tune in, go to the QVC channel at 10:40pm on January 1st and see what I say.
I don't even know yet. Ive only been told what NOT to say. I am so nervous. I'm not good at this sort of stuff and libel to say something stupid or sound stuttered. My stomach is in knots. I'm not a good speaker and its one of my biggest fears, but I have to tell myself  "I can do this" and gain some confidence. I may need some liquid courage before hand. Haha. Wish me luck.


Well, It's the last day of the year and my last post of the year. I cant wait for the new year to begin and start making new plans for the future. I don't make resolutions but I do make a list of things to accomplish each year. Just for the fun of it I look back and see what I made possible.

So, lets see....
Here is my list from last years New Years Day post. I accomplished everything in red.
  1.  Continue good health 
  2.  Maintain my weight loss 
  3.  Participate in a small marathon.
  4.  Clean closets out (again).✓
  5.  Blog more ✓
  6.  Stay off Facebook
  7.  Redo my Kitchen 
  8.  Worry less and pray more
  9.  Get to work on time
  10.  Renew my Phlebotomy certificate 
  11.  And better myself all together. 
I accomplished over half of them and tried at the other half. 
For this new year, I'm not gonna make a list. Ill just keep working on last years goals. I really want to do a 5k or 10k run.

2016 was pretty good for me. No tragedies or major sicknesses. I did loose a tooth though. 
I won a couple fun contest throughout the year. I even got to fly for the first time. In fact I did a lot of "First" this past year. 

Something I never mentioned.... I wrote my first commissioned article just last month. True! This was a big deal for me since I consider myself a poor writer with terrible spelling and lots of typos. I was asked to write a 3k word (6 page) article for a diet website. They sorta helped me out by giving me a few guidelines. It took me a week. I sent it in and they loved it. I was amazed at myself and had some extra cash that helped me complete Christmas. I think I'll go on a shopping trip for some new clothes soon too!

I just want to thank all of you that read and comment on my blog. You have no idea how much it means to me. I enjoy blogging. Its a way I get out my frustrations, show my talents, and let others know whats going on in my part of the world. I have made many blogger friends and hope to continue making more. 

Here is the 2016 year review of my blog post.
