Started working as a Paralegal.

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?:
I make them; I don't keep them.  2008 will find me making small goals that lead to larger ones.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?:
My niece did.  She lives in Oklahoma, but I'm not that close to her.

My Uncle Dudley just recently.  Cool Dude. 94 years young..

5. What countries did you visit?:
The Conch Republic (lol...which is Key West)

6. What would you like to have in 2008 that you lacked in 2007?:
A son with good grades; some money saved for a trip.

7. What date from 2007 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?:
There are a couple. Early March and early July.  I can't say why other than that they were key turning points in a relationship.

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?:
My new job, and moving to where I am now living.

9. What was your biggest failure?:
My past relationship because it didn't work out, followed at a distance by my decision to go to Pennsic when I should not have gone.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?:
Nothing major.

11. What was the best thing you bought?:
My dog Estelle.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?:
hmmm, can't think of anyone.

XX (disguised to protect the not so innocent), astounded, appalled, disappointed but not so much depressed.

14. Where did most of your money go?:
Moving and paying off debt.

15. What did you get really, really excited about?:
My move to New Castle, and Eboy getting his braces off!

16. What song will always remind you of 2007?:
I Feel Bad by Rascal Flatts.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or hardened?: Happier due to better employment; hardened to a point, indifferent to other things; softer yet in others
ii. thinner or fatter?: Ugh, somewhere between 5 and 10 lbs MORE!
iii. richer or poorer?: Richer, per se...able to support myself in a comfortable home.

18. What do you wish you'd done more of?:
Been able to travel more...specifically gone to New Orleans as one of my trips. 

19. What do you wish you'd done less of?:
Listened less to the person who liked to inform me of the negative opinions/perceptions from  people who didn't know me (and on occasion those who did know me).  It was relentless and as I am finding out, untrue to many degrees.

20. How will you be spending Christmas?:
Hmm, Eboy will be with his dad at Grama's; I have no invites anywhere else...so I might work at the Firehouse since they are short people on Xmas Day.

22. Did you fall in love in 2007?:
Alas no, but in this year of change, it was probably for the best.

23. How many one-night stands?:
Uh. That's impertinent. More than 1. Less than 2...lol.  AND  it was someone I knew well. Not sure that counts.

24. What was your favorite TV program?:
CSI any locale.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?:
Hate? No.  Indifferent to...yes.

26. What was the best book you read?:
The Twentieth Wife by Indu Sundaresan. (I think I may have spelled it wrong).  It was an audio book and the reader made it come alive.

27. What was your greatest musical discovery?:
Rascal Flatts.

28. What did you want and get?:
A new community to live in.

The true opportunity to move on in a relationship and not look back.

Um, I can't recall any.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?:
Worked...LOL!  47.

32. Whats one thing that would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?:
I can't even go there without opening a can of worms.

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2007?:
My personal fashion concept was "struggling" since I moved from uniforms to everyday work clothes; limited by $$ and weight.  I would love to aim for "casually elegant".  We can wear jeans to work, but I get very tired of them.

34. What kept you sane?:
My stubborness.  My ability to turn around, walk away and not look back.  The latter faltered on occasion, but I believe I am on the right track now.

35. Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?:
More a "character"...Horatio from CSI: Miami.  I love the timbre of his voice, the attitude, the one liners.

36. What political issue stirred you the most?:
Political?  Wha???

37. Who did you miss?:
Always my Sissy (my aunt, gone now for about 8 years); my mom and dad, although I got to see my dad recently.  Eboy when he wasn't with me.

38. Who was the best new person you met?:
I've met lots of great people in the new community, but as to "best" it is more related to renewing old friendships with a number of old friends that I somewhat let slide when I got involved with the SCA; yet developing friendships with a couple of folks I met through the SCA ( [profile] aliwodehalle is one that comes to mind).

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2007:
The fanciest wrapped package does not always hold the best gift.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:

 I feel bad
That I can stand here strong, cold as stone
Seems so wrong, I can’t explain it
Maybe it’s just I’ve cried so much
I’m tried and I’m numb, baby I hate it
I feel bad
That I don’t feel bad

I could let myself be angry over wasted time
And sad about just throwin’ love away
Yeah, I almost wish my heart was breaking
But I can’t lie
All I want to do is turn the page 

And one last question added by yours truly: 

42. Quote a song lyric that you hope embodies 2008?

 I'm gonna stop looking back start moving on
And learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart make my mark
I wanna leave something here
Go out on a ledge without any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah I wanna be running when the sand runs out
