So, yeah, the updating on this blog is taking extra long just because right now I have zero motivation to start posting again. I have so much to say but little desire to get back in the saddle. I will resume reading and commenting on my favourite blogs though as I really miss that. Tonight in fact as I feel so out of it. I hope to be back in blogging mode latest early Feb, 2010. Please keep checking in.

I almost forgot to post about my adopt a teen experience. So, I finished up with the shopping about three weeks ago and delivered the gifts the week before Christmas. I wasn’t able to get as much as I initially wanted but in the end, I think I did pretty well and I hope my teen likes her gifts.
In the end, I got her (as per the wish list) a warm, heavy blanket. Almost like a duvet but not. I also purchased a winter jacket, cloth as requested, in a beautiful cream color. I think she will like it as my sisters (who are younger and much more fashion forward than I) were gushing over it. Score! I was able to get both the blanket and jacket for a steal at Sears so I am feeling pretty good.
As I knew she didn’t feel like asking for anything frivolous, I took the matter out of her hands and got her a few fun presents. Included was a gift certificate for a friend and her to enjoy a night out at the movies with popcorn and drink. Last but not least was a gift certificate for Old Navy. My sisters thought it better that she choose what she wanted instead of me going crazy looking for something. And yes, I would have drove myself nuts looking for just the right thing and then agonized if it was not cute/cool/pretty enough.
In the end, I pray that she loves the presents and this only improves her Christmas day and helps her to transition into the New Year easier. I have to admit that I feel pretty good and will continue to do adopt a family next year. This time instead of asking for a family, I will inquire about a teen that is truly in need and go from there. For me, giving feels so much better than receiving.

I have not posted anything of value in a while as I have been directionless but pensive for the past few weeks. I am going through a bit of self-reflection and it is effecting a lot of avenues in my life. I was not feeling too good about myself a few days ago but I think I am getting through it. I am not whining, just more...trying to figure out what I want for my life at this stage. What steps I should take next and all that jazz. I have yet to go through my 2010 goals but I have updated my 2009. I am very ashamed of myself as I did very poorly with my goals last year. Here's hoping to a better 2010.
