Another year has passed....... I spent the morning sitting outside, enjoying the cool air and quiet sounds of the neighborhood. I am looking forward to 2008, and started thinking about my new goals.

I looked at the goals I had for 2007 and only achieved a portion of them. I still have my ex, NVF in the past. Unfortunately, I have taken her out quite frequently to examine the extend that I was fooled. I am completely amazed at what a sucker I was. On the brighter side, I have finally reached the point where I want to date again. I am actually excited about the prospect.

My dancing partner is in the past. She is still around, but I don't communicate with her at all. It is sad, but she has her own path to follow, and I don't want to be on it.

My house is still not complete. The fires of southern California put a halt to any construction. My fire victims are still camped out in the living room with all their animals. It is really hard to get anything accomplished right now.

On the brighter side, I did start learning sabre fencing, and faceting in 2007. I was able to enjoy some mushroom hunting, and explore my passion for figs, and sculpture.

My goals for 2008 are much of the same. To live a clean and sober lifestyle, and enjoy exploring this wonderful world. I would like to get more focused creatively, finish my house, train my puppies, and of course, search for that "woman of my dreams".

Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comments. What are your goals for 08?

This is my new addition. Her Name is Remy the Rascal. Her alias is Little Thief. She looks just like Tango, but is a totally different poodle. Quite a handful.

I haven't been blogging since the arrival of my fire victims. They are still camping out in the living room. For the most part, I enjoy the company, but the barking is really stressing me out. I have been attempting to maintain my perspective in this situation, after all, I didn't loose everything in the fires, but I am still stressed. Especially when too many dogs are barking, or they keep barking and no one shuts them up quickly.

Next Tuesday is Christmas. I don't have any Christmas spirit this year. I went shopping for a few presents this morning. It was fun - I even bought myself a few. Hopefully I will get excited about the holiday soon.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Solstice, and Seasons Greetings to all of you. I hope you get everything you wish for.
