Happy New Year 2012

This past year has been particularly rough. 
I have not posted in a while because I have just not felt like I had anything enough to say.
I still don't have a whole lot on my mind to share.  But I want to let you all know that I am still here and still plugging away.  I am not as creatively productive as I would like to be, but I am creating some.  I have lots of ideas, but not the complete motivation to make the ideas come to fruition.
My procrastination habit has become a real problem for me.  I hope in this new year that I can work to reverse that habit.  I have been trying for a while, and hope it continues to improve.
I finally got rid of the car I never liked or wanted.  I am now the proud owner of a, new to me, 2007 Chevy Equinox.  I LOVE IT!  The down side is having car payments again, but I have the comfort of knowing my car is newer and in better shape than the 1999 Mitsubishi Galant.  (And - it is a really pretty blue!)
Thank you to all of my family and friends for all you have done for & with me in 2011, I appreciate & love you all.
I look forward to making 2012 and on the best I can.  A lesson learned from my Mom - no matter what life hands you - do what you can to deal with it and keep your head up.  Focus on the positives in life, the negatives are still there, but they won't consume your time and rob you of enjoying what time you have.  Others have said basically the same things, but watching Mom practice those thoughts was an inspiration.  I only hope that if I am ever faced with half of what she went through that I can handle it with as much grace &  I dignity as she did.  I miss her every day.
