We spent our evening playing Wii "Family Game Night." That was a good time. There was a bowling version of Yahtzee, a basketball Connect 4, shuffleboard Sorry and more. We also pulled out Pente and an old classroom game of 101 to 200 Bingo. That game ended when a cola was spilled across the table. We then turned to some Wii Frisbee Golf and 100 Pin Bowling.
(sparkling grape juice)As the midnight hour was drawing near, we pulled out the vintage crystal compliments of my dad's trip to "West" Germany in the 70s. I just love that the stickers are still on these glasses. We poured some sparkling juice and yelled "Happy New Year!" It was a good time.
Now that 2012 is here, I have lots of plans. Most I can't share. I will let you know about them as they happen. (How's that for a cliffhanger?) I will say that one of them has to do with looking for a more permanent full time employment. In the meantime, I am still exploring my creativity through my artwork. (Today I am trying to complete my Sketchbook Project journal.) I am also working as assistant editor for FEATURING Magazine.
My word for the year is
I will live my life more boldly. I will no longer do things timidly or out of fear.
Are you choosing a word for the year? What are your goals? I'd love to hear about them.
