2008 has been an interesting, challenging, and rewarding year. I have met so many new friends through this very blog. I have been introduced to the world of blogging, and have caught the the fever. I find it hard to believe that just a few months back, in May, I started this blog. I really knew nothing about blogging, other than a few previous experiences with blogs on Yahoo and Windows Live Spaces. I had my other blog, Chihuatude, but was just feeling my way through the blogosphere.
I start off 2009 with a very large list of friends, that I can not imagine doing without. It’s interesting just how we seem to get to know each other, and share moments of triumph and tragedy with each other. Not that long ago, I would have never dreamed of sharing many of the things I have on this blog. Now I can’t imagine not having the support of my blog friends. The relationships I have found mean so much to me.
To all my blogging friends, and all those family, acquaintances, and compatriots who read my blog, I wish all of you a wonderful, rewarding, and prosperous New Year. I hope you all enjoy your New Years Eve parties, and hope you all have a safe and joyous celebration. Some of you, have already had your New Years, like those of you down under in the land of OZ. I hope you enjoyed your celebration, and are recovering safely.
I have no real new year tradition. For so many years, I always worked on New Years Eve, and day. So I will welcome 2009 with a simple bottle of Shinner Bock or two, and watch the Times Square celebration on television. I know, not very interesting or exciting, but just my style.
