Off With The Old, On With The New

Whew! We made it through another year. And as you know my 2013 went out with a bang. Who'd have thought having grand babies would have such an impact. When I held them I thought, "Aren't they sweet?" But when they opened their eyes and looked at me--with so much intelligence, I might add--my heart caught in my throat. I'm afraid I'm going to be a cliche grandmother, showing pictures and talking about them constantly. But I will try to limit the grandparental urges on my blog... There's always Facebook. grin.
What about you? How did 2013 stack up for you? Have you made any New Year's Resolutions?
Mine are the same tired ones I drag out every year: watch the weight, exercise more, improve my writing skills, try to be more patient and kind. Same old. Same old. Anyone out there with unique, exciting resolutions, they'd care to share?

I looked at the door. No one was in the hall. I hunched forward and whispered, still clutching the sheet. “Kess, he had fangs and his eyes glowed.”~Tall, Dark and Undead

  1. Tall, Dark and Undead sounds intriguing=)
    I will be posting more about my New Year's resolution on my blog but some of my promises will be sticking to exercise and a good well-being regimen. Of course, I've always believed in receiving more in this world by being kind and showing off our own potential. I will continue to do so as I try to help others find their way and concentrate on my own writing as well.
    Happy New Year, Sandra!

  6. I don't make resolutions because I don't always follow through. Last year, I heard about picking one word. Last year, my word was Breathe as I had just come through a difficult time. Haven't felt what my word will be this year. Still plenty of time.
