Sorry for the late post wishing all my readers an awesome Happy New Year! I hope 2009 is a great year for everyone. I'm not sure what the future will be for my three other blogs that I'm writing, but I will continue to write on this one. It will depend on how busy I get with the teaching. I think part of the other problem is with Payperpost. They are offering more posts, but the majority are $5 and 200 words. That's a lot of words just for $5 and not really worth my time. Let's just say my future with them isn't looking too promising. I do enjoy writing the other blogs, but I do neglect more than I should. I just find it hard to come up with good content for all of them. I could write most of the content right here on this blog. I haven't made up my mind yet on what to do with them.

I decided to make a few resolutions for the new year. If you made any, then I would love to read them. Please share them in my comments section.

1) Take our first family trip this year. I have been putting it off for over two years so this is the year we finally take that trip. We already have the money set to the side so no more excuses.

2) Walk a mile daily. I have a great DVD set called Walk Away the Pounds. I really need to get in better shape for our vacation. I also want to increase my water intake to a gallon daily. I used to drink that much water and I felt great.

3) I really need to get back to gardening. I love having fresh vegetables and fruits. I also want to plant strawberries for jam and for smoothies. I am thinking of buying a couple of blueberry bushes. I also want to make my own spaghetti sauce plus dabble in canning. I'm thinking about planting a couple of dwarf fruit trees.

4) I have several financial goals for this year. They mostly consist of savings, but I will elaborate more in another post soon.

Happy New Year and good luck with all your resolutions! I planted strawberry plants a few years back and make homemade jam every summer. It freezes well and tastes so good, like fresh strawberries!

One of my resolutions is to try to keep up with all my family/friends birthdays. I have a bad habit of being late with their cards or forgetting it altogether! Hoping to change that in 2009!

I decided to skip making a resolution this year; I never seem to keep them anyway! Best wishes to you for keeping your resolutions!

I've planted a ton of grape vines for making wine and jelly, along with some great dwarf fruit trees - including 2 unique ones, a 5-on-one apple tree and a fruit cocktail tree...I'll be curious to see how the fruit on those turns out! I want to plant strawberries and blueberries too...I've been having great fun getting back into jam/jelly making and canning...and making wine...that's even more fun! ;)

Happy New Year!!
