Mine came in with a snore and a sigh. Yes, I missed all the hoopla, with the exception of being awakened by one of our neighbors setting off fire works. Once that was over, I fell right back asleep. I don't even think I dreamed.
Maybe that was a good way to usher in 2010- sound asleep. In my quest to de-stress, getting enough sleep is high on my list. No more waking up tired for me! I want to hop out of bed in the morning and greet the world eager to get to the business of the day.
So, here's to morning prayers, hanging laundry, feeding the hens, making breakfast, making lunch, making dinner, quilting, crafting, visiting family and friends, thrifting, yard sale-ing, working, doing service, taking my camera everywhere, kissing my husband, hugging my children, patting the dog, going to church, cleaning the house, planting the garden, reading a book, reading blogs, and all of the other things I love to do. This year, they will all be accomplished with eyes wide open and the realization that, if some things don't get done, the world will not end. Goodbye endless chain of sleep-depriving thoughts that play like a horror movie in my head- there's always tomorrow.
I feel better already.
