Paring Down in 2011

Happy 2011!

What a year 2010 was.  I started blogging, dealt with a lot of both work-related drama and contentment, and moved my daughter and son-in-law to Brooklyn.  In August I went straight from LaGuardia to the wonderful school where I teach, and that was the beginning of the end of the year for me.  I stopped blogging, went a little crazy busy, and have thought about Paring Down ever since.  And that, my friends, is why I am back here today.

It's time to get back on track.

To set my life in the direction I want it to go.

To implement the one little word I have chosen for 2011: MOVE.

Check out some of the dictionary definitions for MOVE:
  • to change from one place or position to another 
I have places to go, people to see, and goals to accomplish this year....

  • to set or keep in motion
My bootay, that is....
  • to prompt, actuate, or impel to some action
I love the clean, blank slate that is the new year to get me started....

  • to arouse or excite the feelings or passions of; affect with emotion 
Excited and passionate are both good words for me now....
  • to affect with tender or compassionate emotion; touch
My friends and family have done this for me (love you all).... 

Here's to the best year yet!


  1. Yes, move--I like that! I need to do that, too.
