Well, 'tis the season and all, but I can't help feeling that a lot of things that I've loved in 2006 have been coming to an end... the loss of the old car, but it was replaced by this:
This is the actual new car - parked outside of my office building. I'm really thrilled with it and am enjoying a much smoother ride to and from work. I've got one more thing to do for my new insurance company and then I'm free and clear to drive without obligation...of course, I'm off to home for eight days and can't enjoy the car until I return, but hey - no biggie.
The other big news for today is that I am now an official graduate of the Westchester Academy for Entrepreneurial Excellence. This is a course I've been taking for the last 15-16 weeks and it has been so much fun and so educational and has given me all of the tools to get the new business in working order. You can check out the new company at www.westchestermeetings.com I made the website myself - we plan on getting a designer when we have our first few clients under our belts. Until then, I'm really proud of the work. So, I'll miss my pals from the class, they are the neatest folks and great friends, I'll miss seeing them every Tuesday. Of course, we're planning to go on with our Alumni Association, so I won't have to miss them too much. I mean, folks dressed up for Halloween... yeah, that's me on the end in this group. I went as a bounced check (that class was on taxes!) What a great time.
So - now it's off to Pittsburgh for family fun and holiday cheer. I get to spend some time with my best girlfriends, Kelly & Dani and get to meet baby Molly and talk to Dani's baby (via the belly). It's going to be so great! I've got lunch with Darren and his new wife and hopefully my pal Pat. Things are coming to a nice close for the end of 2006. What an amazing year this has been for me. I wouldn't change much.
And on a personal note, I'm so thankful for Chris. He's my rock - the person who stands beside me when the chips are down or my emotions are up. He's the guy who I am more in love with every morning I wake up. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have someone so wonderful to share her life with. Merry Christmas, honey!
So - I'll try to post from home, but if not - see you at the end of next week. And we will get back to knitting soon too!
