I am finding it so hard to believe that it is already New Year's Eve, 2013. I have no idea where this year went. It was so fast. But it was one of the hardest years I have had in my adult life. But everyday is special for one reason or another, so I won't be complaining. Today, anyway!
I am going to catch up and end Holidailies! It was fun writing each day and I don't know what I am going to do yet in January or any of the months of 2014. So I will just get started with the last questions:
What Do You Wish you Had known 10 years ago?
Ten years ago....hmmmm! It was 1993. I was 53 years old and the only thing I was waiting for was the year 2013. Can you believe that? I couldn't wait to turn 62 years old so that I could retire from my nursing job and spend time with my husband. Maybe we would travel. Maybe we would re-model our home. Maybe we would hang out more with the grand kids. Boy what a difference 10 years can make. Right? My husband retired, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease,I broke my leg severely while on vacation and had to be non-weight bearing for 3 full months, he had a 5 vessel by pass surgery, 2 catroidectomies, a stoke and I was forced into early retirement. Two of our grand kids came to live with us permanently. Do I wish I had known all that 10 years ago. Heck no! I wish that I had known that I should live every single day to the fullest because you never know what will happen tomorrow....or even later today.
What is your Favorite Way to Celebrate New Year's Eve?
The same way that we celebrate every year. The grand kids (at least three of them) come over. We play games, eat good food, they have sparkling grape juice and we might have something a bit stronger and we watch the ball drop in Times Square. Who could ask for anything more?
What are you looking forward to in 2014?
Health, wealth, and prosperity! Of course. And maybe a little break now and then. And a few happy times with my husband....
Happy New Year's Family and Friends!
