A Fresh Wish for 2010

Happy 2010! Well, we made it here, now what are we gonna do with it? Gah!

A fresh year, a fresh decade to start all over again. And to say goodbye to the old crap that didn’t come to pass. I for one will fight to let those things go and work to embrace the new dreams of today.

The DD had a fine idea of going back to an old tradition that I had made up and forgotten about after we moved to the new house in the new town a few years ago. When the twins were small we always stayed in on New Year’s Eve and we’d blow up paper bags and make a wish in them and then pop them for the New Year. Don’t know where I got the idea or why I forgot it, but I was very happy that it made an impression in the now teen DD and she wanted to go back to it.
It was a tough 2009 and it felt good to go back to the old family traditions and start the year on a fresh wish.

Cheers to you and wishing all our dreams come true this year.

I love that idea. Now if I can only find a brown bag since all I have is plastic bags.

Happy 2010 to you and your family. May it be filled with joy and blessings.

Pickle, Lucca and I are up early-perhaps I'll start a short to-do list. I love the bag-popping idea. I hope 2010 is kind to you and your family Kwana.

I just might still your tradition for next year! 2009 was hard for me too. Professionally it was a growth, but personally difficult.
Hope you have a great one!!

That's a great idea! I'm glad your daughter brought it back!

Happy new everything, Kwana!
