wow, I sure haven't accomplished that much!

mine would be: January-December: played with toys, ate, slept, barked occasionally, chased the cat, slept some more, played more, gave many kisses, recieved many kisses and hugs, and ate some more.

I wish I was that motivated as a dog!

My year was great!! lost my steady job and lived on unemployment for awhile. Went to work with and for a close personal friend. Met the love of my life C and it filled a giant void in me. Bought a new 4x4 truck and put big tires on it. Expierinced a small windfall which I have not discused in the blogsphere. In the process of leaving the brotherhood my club, but still have all my friends in there. Haven't discussed that on the blogsphere either. I am still drug free with only a occaisonal drink now and then. (somebody brought some moonshine to work tonight and I couldn't resist a swig. Really good stuff)My dad is still alive and kicking thou not as high as he use to. I got a roof over my head, food to eat, and clean clothes on my back. Still got my harley.

Some of my year has been good and some of it bad, some of it sad and some of it glad!!

Love you windfall. You have been a true friend!!

P.S. C loved her bling bling for christmas!!!

I'm here from Dan's site.
Your a beautiful woman, I couldn't resist. Looks like you had a year filled with good and bad.
As long as the good outweighed the bad, your doing OK.
Now, about the belly dancing...

Have a Happy New Year filled with peace & love.

Crawlin' up out of a hole, I am. It gets a little bit better every day, 'cept for those days it gets a little bit worse. I s'pose it really is about taking two steps forward and one step backwards, but focusing on just taking those steps. I'm two years out of living with The Husband... and he's still not working but he seems to be trying. I've managed to get The Oldest graduated from college last May and Middle Son has made it to being a junior and is still an honor student. I'm one semester away from having The Youngest out of HS and we're *that close* to having his college apps completed. I guess I feel pretty good about 06, now that I think about it. Thanks for asking. Happy New Year, WFW. I hope you have a great weekend and and even better 07!

I'd say that 2006 was the greatest year since 2005.

Windfall, this is a totally sweet post -- how you found all the highpoints in each month (and the lowpoints, but you put those after the highpoints).

2006 was mixed for me. I lost my dad less than two weeks ago so that was pretty bad. My only sibling, my brother was severely brain damaged when hit by an SUV while bicycling this summer. But then again I have made blogger pals (like you) and my heart opened more than it ever has in previous years.

See you in 2007, OK?

You certainly had quite a year of highs and lows, and you came out of it none the worse for wear.

Excellent post. Here's hoping that 2007 will be the best!

Thanks for the recent visit and kind comments.
