Happy New Year


I can say this now, because it is 2007 in some parts of the world. The picture above is from Sydney, Australa (*waving to HP*).

I've finally caught up on my rest. I don't want to bore you with all the details, but it was just crazy at work last week. Great to have a weekend off to catch my breath.

On a day like today, one cannot help but reflect back on the year that was and the year that will be. Even though it's really cheezy to say, but it is a time of hope. A time to kind of give yourself a clean slate to start again.

Some are really into this new year's resolution thing. I admit that sometimes I make them and sometimes I don't. There's this columnist that says Forget New Year's Resolutions. But, for me, here we go.

Physical health: I know. I'm one of the many people who make this resolution. But, I really think that I can do it this time. Or, maybe it's the guilt of all those sweets that I consumed at holiday time. Hmm....

Mental health: Why do I feel like I'm confessing all my sins? Anyway, I could do a little better at dealing with stress. Usually, when I'm at work, I have no problem reaching for the M&Ms or whatever chocolate is around - especially last week when things were really busy. Finding a better way to deal with this will help. How to do this? I'm still working on that.

Better blogging: Yes, that's right. Even though you see links to all my fave posts in the sidebar, I really believe that my best blogging will be in 2007. Or, I'll completely lose my mind and write the worst posts ever. You'll have to stay tuned and find out. Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve and New Year's Day!

Waving right back, Dr. A!

I've made some resolutions similar to yours..I'd love to say I'll keep them but if history repeats itself... :)

Looking forward to reading the 2007 edition of Dr. A. Hope you have a wonderful New Year.

Happy new year Doc, from Sydney. It was a special night - running into the city at 0230 to pick up (adult) kids that had been down on the harbour watching the fireworks. "Hey Dad, there are no taxis (d'oh) and there is a one hour wait for trains (the crowd is so large). Can you pick us up?" Mobile phones can be a curse!!

Happy New Year, Doc!

I'm not in Australia, just lowly NC. Still a little over two hours until 2007. I hope I can stay awake.

Looking forward to your posts in the new year. cheers!!

Happy New Year to you and yours from Duisburg, Germany! Have a blast - wishing all the best for you in 2007!

Why do you feel like you're confessing all your sins? Because we stigmatize our personal limitations. Most people feel worse about their mistakes than they do about their evil actions. How crazy is that?

PLEASE don't get on the performance bandwagon with your blogging. You already have a tough job which demands a high standard of competence. You don't need another job. Blog addiction is supposed to be FUN!!! Your readers will like you better if they can relate to you as a fellow human being.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is the first day of the rest of your life.
