Happy New Years!!!

Hey ya’ll! Drama Queen here...Mom (Lucy) came down with a really nasty cold just after her recovery from the flu. Talk about luck...not. After watching her cough and sneeze in her recliner with blankets and tissue boxes surrounding her, we both decided it would be best if I wrote the New Years Eve blog for her...

First, I would like to start off saying...HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! We are minutes away from beginning our year of 2008 and I am totally psyched! This holiday is all about new beginnings...I strongly believe in having no regrets and learning from all of our say goodbye to the good and the bad from 2007 and get ready for a year that you can make truly fantastic. Keep your outlook positive! Now I know you all are familiar with the tradition of making New Years Resolutions and me and Mom have made ours...

My Resolutions:
1. Stop fighting with Mom so muchJ
2. Learn to cook
3. Inspire at least three other people to reach for their dreams

Mom’s (Lucy’s) resolutions:
1. Argue less with Drama Queen
2. Work out at least three times a week
3. Turn in all her books on time

Wish us luck and good luck to all of you!

Again, Mom’s giving out prizes so if you comment on this blog and tell us what your New Years resolutions are, you will be entered in a chance to win Champagne Bubble Bath and Harry and David Chocolates...We will post the winner on this blog at 10:00pm tomorrow night.

2008 is the year of no buying beads. I need to use the ones I have.

Laura J. said...

Lucy--sorry you feel so bad. I've been dealing with a cough/crud thing for about 6 weeks now. Hopefully yours will be over soon.

DQ---that dress is gorgeous and thanks for filling in for your mom!

My resolution is to try and get rid of some clutter (but I'm not making any promises to that, which makes it more of a goal instead of a resolution).

robynl said...

Happy New Year.
Lucy, I have the terrible cold/sinus thing going on. In fact I finally went to the doc and he thinks it is bacterial so gave me antibiotics(ugh).
I resolve to keep a positive attitude and to see the positive whenever possible.

Jennifer Y. said...

Happy New Year!

My main resolution is to read more. I particularly want to try and read more ebooks.

Feel better Lucy! I am battling an awful cold right now myself.

Janie said...

Hi DQ you look gorgeous in your dress.
I hope you mom gets to feeling better soon
My resolution is to be a better mom to my daughters ages 24, 9 and 7.

petite said...

Happy New Year!
My resolution is to travel and to realize that there is another world out there to be explored.

KimW said...

Sending fast healing wishes to you, Lucy. I hope you feel better soon.

Drama Queen - love that dress and the want that set. Oh, and if you don't happen to learn how to cook, don't worry about it. I bet your mom will be happy to provide a home cooked meal even as you grow older and you can always put that down as a qualification for your future husband and let him take care of that. lol

My resolution is to get a wee bit more organized than I currently am.

catslady said...

Hello "drama queen" :) Hope your mom is feeling better soon - maybe the rest of the year will go well since she got that out of the way.

I'm hoping to go with the flow more and get less stressed over all the daily stuff. I am realizing that you just can't please everyone!

Happy New Year everyone.

Wendy said...

Happy New Year!! hope you feel better soon, Lucy!

My New Years Resolution is to graduate nursing school with great, grades, and get my muscles a bit more toned. :)

Brandy said...

Happy New Year to Drama Queen and Lucy! (And family!)

I hope Lucy feels better soon. Colds are nasty creatures.

I have no major resolutions this year, except to continue to try and be healthy. I started a Yoga class in 2007 and loved it, so this won't be so hard! *G* Best of luck to you both in your resolutions for 2008!

Cryna said...

Happy New Year!!

Lucy hope you get to feeling better real soon. As for resolutions I don't make them, that way I don't feel like a failure when they are broken.

Good thoughts being sent to you and hope that 2008 is a good year for you.

Sue A. said...

Happy New Year to all!

This year I'd like to make a good dent in my TBR pile.

I hope Lucy gets well soon.

Estella said...

I don't make resolutions---I just end up breaking them.
Hope Lucy feels better soon.
Happy New Year!

Cathy said...

So sorry to hear the Lucy is feeling so bad, lots of cruddy stuff going around this season. My goal for the year is to be healthier, not so much dieting, as adding more excercise, and to work at de-stressing my life.

Stephanie said...

Happy New Year! I hope you feel better soon, Lucy.

I don't usually stick with my resolutions so I haven't given it much thought. However, I do want to read more and write more in 2008. So, those are my resolutions so far.

lidia said...


Hope you feel better soon -- sending many, many HUGS your way.

I am not big on resolutions -- but this year I am going to do my best to lose the extra lbs that I gained two years ago.

DQ -- you look great! I hope that you had a great time -- where ever you went in that fabulous dress.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Cathy said...

Happy New Year!!

My resolution is to get some type of exercise everyday.

I hope yoy feel better soon Lucy.

Angie-la said...

Awww...Lucy, I hope you feel better real soon. So many sick friends and relatives..there is a nasty stomach virus making the rounds here. Look at it this way; you are getting all your illness over with at the first of the year, so you will be blessed with good health for the remainder of 2008.

And my resolution is an easy one to keep...I resolve to make no resolutions!
The DH has been (and still is facing) some major health issues and we are going to have to make some lifestyle changes.

Lettetia said...

Hey DQ, you look beautiful as always! Love the dress!

Good luck with your resolutions, I hope with all my heart you succeed, both of you.

Mine is simple, yet hard at the same time- include God in everything I do, everything!

I hope to see you again soon, sweetie! Love to you and your wonderful family!


Judy F said...

Happy New Years. Lucy I hope you are feeling better soon. Hugs.

My resolutions are to let things go, worry less and to lose some weight.

Judy F said...

forgot to add DQ love the dress.

flchen1 said...

Ditto everyone who already said, wow, DQ, you look maahhvelous!

Lucy, feel better soon!!

I'm with Laura J--trying to declutter in this coming year (it's been driving my DH bonkers for years), and also to better prioritize... we'll see how this goes ;)

More books! More chocolate! :)

Jennifer said...

Hi Drama Queen & Lucy!
[I had "DQ" up but I couldn't get "Dairy Queen" out of my head...]
I love the dress!
And - hopefully you're feeling better, Lucy. Healthy people don't realize what a luxury breathing easily is.
My New Year's resolution is... nothing- well, I resolved not to set an official new years resolutions. Of course, I have the same mini goals I'll take out throughout the year every year, such as conserving energy/going green, continuing to volunteer/volunteer more, lose weight/work out to fit (properly) in my hs jeans... and read even more for fun, not for school.

Phyllis said...

Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year Everyone.

Of course, I'm two days late and several dollars short. lol

DQ, you look great. Lucy, I sincerely hope you're better. I caught my whatever Christmas Eve and am almost over it finally. Not fun being down.

No resolution except to be myself. I'm too old to remember resolutions I may or may not make. lol

Maureen said...

Hi Drama Queen,
We have one around here too. I hope Lucy is feeling better and my resolution is to clear some of the clutter out of my house. Happy 2008!

Chantal said...

DQ, you look stunning!

Sorry to hear your mom was hit with the flu and cold.
Thats crappy :(

Over the holidays all three of my kids and my husband were sick with the flu. I'm the only one who didn't get it. Phew.

Lucinda said...

God lord, Drama Queen you have grown so much since I last saw you!

My resolution is to make it home this year to see everyone.

Give Lucy hugs from me!
