2013 was a kind of neutral year for me. Or maybe it just felt that way because it was the beginning of my fourth year without my man. I think of him daily and miss his cheerful smile and uplifting attitude. It doesnít get any easier as the years go by. He was always there to cheer me on, encourage me to try new things, and lift my spirits when I was down. ..in other words, my rock. Now I have to do all that for myself and Iím not always ready to do so.
In winter, I started working on the first in a new series of books, Town of Paris Twins.
I bought my first Activity tracker from Spark People and got into the habit of walking 6,000 a day and this has become a habit now! Yay!
Weight was up and down due to the many snacks left by my housemates who have since taken their own apartment.
Published my new book and make a Facebook page for it. Had several book signings and made some new author friends.
Vacationed in Hampton Beach with most of my family in July.
Started praying a rosary a day, reading a bible meditation each morning before I get started, and praying daily for family and friends.
Being somewhat of an introvert, I enjoyed spending time alone to read, write, check out Facebook (my entertainment and at times my company).
Bought myself a new iPad for Christmas. It takes wonderful pictures and Iím learning how to use it.
I start my year alone in the house.
Blog at least once a week.
Spend more time with my family who are my loves and support in this world.
Do more work for the historical society. (Town of Paris)
Purge the house of unnecessary items. Live a simpler life.
Write the next book in the new Town of Paris Twins. Attempt some miscellaneous types of writing: articles, short stories, etc.
Lose 10 lbs. Ďnuff said, by eating healthier.
Do something wild and crazy once a week.
Do an unexpected kindness once a week anonymously.
And most importantly, LIVE, LAUGH, and LOVE more.
