2007 year in review

Well, it is 2008! Happy New Year to all. I remember being in Sunday school when I was six or seven and my teacher asked what we all thought that we would be doing in the year 2008. Some of the kids were telling about jobs they would have or animals they would own. You know, typical six year old answers. When it came my time for me to answer the question I said, "I think I will be dead!" Well, I am happy to say that I am still kickin'. I dunno why I remember that, but I remember thinking that 2008 was such a long time off. I am already starting the new year with my first puppy trade. I have Murray here for the next few days and Sherman is with his raisers. Murray is such a love and absolutely gorgeous and very very sweet. I adore him. :) Anywho, back on subject. . .

Here are my New Years resolutions:
1. To be more patient and understanding, both with people and my pups.
2. To save some money!!!
3. To loose some weight. (who doesn't have that on their list?)
4. To be more social
5. Spend more time on school work
6. Get a better job
7. To not care what people think of me
8. Be more decisive. (I am probably the most indecisive person alive)
9. Not to worry so much!!!! (I am getting worry wrinkles)
10. Take a little stress out of my life
11. Catch up on my scrapbook. (I am about 2 years behind)
