New Year, New Gifts!
Happy 2009, everyone! Had to share the picture above--it's my Christmas present from my husband (a beautiful tapestry!). I can't tell you how much I love it--it's perfect, right down to the rod. Definitely a nice surprise! We finally got it hung today, and I can't stop walking by to admire it. Just goes to show how well my hubby knows me!
On another topic, I'm looking forward to a far more productive 2009 than 2008--my number one resolution this year is to write more, every day. I really need to force myself to 'go to work' every day once my kids leave for school, stay off the 'net, and write regularly during 'school hours.' My number two resolution is to get back to exercising. I joined a gym last summer and have been exactly once since. Not good.
I was actually diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis this past fall, and it's been a struggle. Most days, all I wanted to do was climb back into bed and sleep the day away. And that's pretty much exactly what I did. But I've been on medication to treat the RA for a little over a month now, and I think I'm finally starting to feel the effects--my joints definitely hurt less (though my fingers remain clumsy--drives me nuts!), and I think the overwhelming exhaustion is beginning to lessen.
Thus making it possible for me to work toward those resolutions. Hopefully.
How about you? Any resolutions this year?
Even the dog likes to check out the new tapestry!
