Default What do you want in 2006

What do you want to happen in 2006,


Do you want to: accomplish something , learn something new , take a trip , make something , finish something , read a few of Anne's books that you haven't read in awhile , make a new friend , buy a dog , get a cat ...

Tell us what it is for you! Let us all share our dreams for the new year.

I want to learn how to use this computer, so I don't feel so stupid when I am trying to do something that every one else seems to know how to do.That way I can stop hitting myself in the head, trying to kick start my one and only, little grey cell!
I also want to go see my children in Charlotte North Carolina, but that means I will have to get on a plane and fly all the way across the country. Not my most favorite thought, or thing to do.
I also want to re-read a few of Anne's booksso I can keep up with all of you!

I would like to see a few of my projects wind down, and not just drag on. I'm getting testy, especially while waiting for a certain book of essays to get published.

Effortless weight loss! Is very easy acording to my husband! He says it's easy, you just have to stop eating, no problem! Oh yeah! Well I tried it, and it works not quite that easy, but it did work, he needs to right a book. So simple, who would have thought!

Ghyle, No-No testy! My little blue furry friend. Don't worry, someone like you with that much talent will surely be noticed and published. Just keep doing what you do so well and it will all be there in it's own time. Problem is, we all want it in our time, unfortunatly it doesen't work that way. Think possitive, just keep telling yourself that it will happen and it will.

Maelin, no secret. I'm now a PR officer for a company active n the health field of seniors and I also do their intranet and internet stuff.

I want however, become their Modern Media Manager and handle all digital stuff, from internet, intranet and extranet to educational and other material on DVD or CD.
That means effectively a change of jobs at the same company but for the fact that the job of Modern media Manager doesn't yet exist

Problem is they have trouble coming up with the (extra) funds because money is scarce in the health field for the elderly and goes first and most to the "hands on the bed" and not the "hans on the computer"

Know what you mean Pam, I use to live in the mountians for about twenty plus years. Snow up to your knees during the winters. When we finaly moved, I was like Scarlett Ohara, "I promise I'll never be cold again". I get cold now just reading Power Play, so much so that I will only read it during the summer on the beach during vacation.

hm dream for 2006??

well for myself mainly for my children to be happy, my step-father's health to improve (has had cancer and a couple of mild strokes), for my mother the strength and support she needs in caring for my step-father...... to be able to see my Dad, whom I haven't seen for... nearly 7 years, and before then sporadically over the last 24 years....

and I guess happiness and contentment for all

I hope that you get most of your wishes, Chris.

I know I could have wished likewise, especially as my 92-year old stepfather is going in for a hip operation (or is that hip-hop oration?) in January.

I'd like to see my dad again as well.

Thanks Ghyle and Maelin.

Actually this is probably not the right place for it but I would like to ask I guess for you all to think positive thoughts for a young boy here who just today was hit by a truck. Just out the front of our shop. I could say fortunately I didn't see it but that sounds a bit.... callous maybe?? anyway, I did hear it...... poor kid, he was on his bike and as all kids do just decided to ride accross the road without checking for traffic.... he has a broken arm, broken leg and fractured skull. Has been flown to Brisbane, probably to the Royal Bris Children's Hospital. And the poor truck driver....... didn't see the boy till it was too late!! It wasn't a semi fortunately as if it were the boy would be dead, it was a, light rigid, I guess it is.

Ciao!!

tks ghyle, last I heard, his condition was stable, his ct scan (head) was clear so no apparent problem there, apart from skull fracture....... I guess that means no haemorraghing (or however it's spelled )

haven't heard anything since this morning so no news is good news

Tks Maelin

The latest update is that he is out of intensive care, sitting up and eating which for a child is always a good sign

Seems to be out of danger. The leg was a clean break, but the arm was a mess. He has a plate in there........... so still a bit of a way to go with that.

Thanks for your positive 'vibes'

Merry Christmas all!!!

What do I want for 2006? Well lets see...Peace on earth good will towards men (and women)? If that's too much to ask then at least a little more love and kindness for our fellow human beings. A few good books to read, a few more friends, a few more needlepoints to work on and finish, and the light of my life, my husband and best friend beside me for the duration!!

Chris...Prayers and good thoughts being sent for the child. Any new word on how he's doing??
