For those who entered the contest- thanks for that.

That means I only need 6 more.

Contest ends December 31, 12:00 PM MST.

And, drum roll please.... what do you win???
$20 to spend on whatever you want at Barnes & Noble.
Since I already told you all about some of my New Year's Resolutions, I look forward to hearing some of yours.

Great contest. One of my New Year's resolutions is to make a big dent in the "too be read" books on my bookshelves, before I spend any money on new ones. It's going to be tough as new books just call to me in the store sometimes! :o)

I also posted this giveaway on my blog to try to get you some of those 6 new followers you are looking for. Here is a link if you want to see:

OMGoodness...I think that my New Year's Resolution will be:

To take the steps necessary to become healthier, both in body, mind, and in spirit. Baby steps hopefully will lead to giant leaps. I want to be able to live in a way that will enable me to be around and be PRODUCTIVE. I want to have the stamina to keep up with all my grandchildren, to be able to be help to my children. AND to be a sexy old broad for my husband!

Thanks so much for the giveaway.
May you be blessed with health, happiness and prosperity in this new year, and for many many more.

My most important New Year's Resolution is to read at least one book a month. I want to read more! I need to free up more time to read!

Also, diet and exercise, write more, be more organized, do better in this semester's classes, and HAVE MORE FUN!

Margay said...

My New Year's resolution is...not to make any more resolutions. It's worked for me the past couple of years, so why not continue the tradition? This way, I won't beat myself up emotionally if I fail to fulfill a resolution. And I've found that this is the easiest one to keep.

I am a follower of this blog.


Melissa said...

Hey! I don't think I'm a follower! I'll become one.

I kind of resent that term, but I'll do it for you.

I don't "do" resolutions, but on my birthday I made a decision to make some changes... mostly remembering how short these days with little ones are and how important my role as their mom and nurturer and teacher is. use it anytime. ;)

Mandy said...

This year I hope to get more organized

CherylS22 said...
