2015 CHECK LIST
Are you ready for the New Year?
Of course, the last year goes out with a whirlwind of
activity. Buying, wrapping, baking, traveling,
unwrapping, visiting, cooking, eating, more traveling -
all take up our time and attention.
Then, before we know it, it is time for New Year's Eve!
I read that about 45% of us make New Year's resolutions,
but over half will give them up within 6 months.
Frankly I'm surprised most of us make it that long.
I've done fairly well with my resolutions for the past
few years, but I'll admit that they haven't been too
Well, here is a Checklist for 2015 to consider:
Packing up the tree and decorations |
Vacuuming pine needles |
Writing thank you notes |
Still visiting family and friends |
Setting those new year's resolutions |
Nursing a NYE hangover |
Picking up those stray champagne corks |
Bundling up for a cold winter - without all of the
Christmas excitement |
Breaking those NYE resolutions... |
Bracing for a busy January booking clients to great
Of course, you have to do all of these things, and more,
while balancing all of your family, personal and
professional priorities. How do we do it???
Thank you to all of you who sent good wishes for
Ralphie's recovery from her ligament surgery in
November. She is doing great. She is doing her daily
physiotherapy and getting stronger on her leg!
No matter what is on your New Year checklist, I hope you
are healthy and happy in 2015!
