This year, on New Year’s Eve, my husband and I went furniture shopping. We started off the year with some new (actually used, as we can’t afford brand new) bedroom end tables and a headboard (the headboard was new). We got a good deal on it, as everything was only $100. Throughout the day, I went grocery shopping, cleaned up the house, relaxed some, and in the evening we had guests and a small little New Year’s party. At 11:56 PM, I decided to check my phone when I realized I got an e-mail from my first ever editor. She wrote that she enjoyed my story and the edits were rather simple, with only one scene that needed to be re-written.
I rang in the year with friends, family, new furniture, and edits for my short story. That is the best New Year I could have asked for. I’m beyond excited to be working with a real editor, as now it’s become real. Before it was just a dream that could happen, now it’s a dream that will happen. That made me think that 2011 will be a great year.
Yesterday, I read my horoscope for 2011 (that’s a tradition for me) and it pretty much said it will be a great year for me. I’m very optimistic right now.
So what about you? How did you ring in the year? Do you think it will be a good year for you?
